CECAM Workshop “Computational Many-Body physics in the era of artificial gauge fields“

The Workshop will take place on
April 8-10, 2015.
The first day of the workshop will be dedicated to spin-orbit physics (and related topics) in traditional solid state systems as well as in cold atomic systems. In the next days we focus on (artificial) gauge fields, long-range interactions for fermionic systems and out-of-equilibrium systems. The aim of the workshop is to hear about the experimental state-of-the-art, as well as to learn what theoretical/computational methods we have at our disposal to study such systems and go significantly beyond the state of the art.
The workshop website is
It will regularly be updated with the latest information.
There will be 6 half-day sessions including a poster session and ample time for discussions. There will be about 20-25 invited speakers (see below for the list), but we are open for applications from all colleagues in the field to participate. We encourage in particular young scientists to attend and actively participate in the poster session. There will be no conference fee.
Registration is possible via email to the organizers (lode.pollet@lmu.de) indicating your poster contribution AND registration on the CECAM website (ie the workshop website, http://www.cecam.org/workshop-1167.html).
The conference room can host up to 70 people.  We have made a reservation of 20 single rooms in a nearby hotel (Hotel Hauser, Schellingstrasse 11, 80799 Munich). In case of successful registration before Feb 20 (and in case you are one of the first 20 to apply), you will receive the booking code and further information on how this hotel can be booked  at a reduced rate until Feb 20.
Note:  this information does not apply for invited speakers. Invited speakers will be informed separately.
