The major theme of this conference is to understand how the confluence of strong interactions, topology and symmetry lead to new states of matter with novel properties. For example, quantum spin liquids have no long-range magnetic order but possess long-range entanglement that lead to fractionalized excitations with potential applications in quantum computation. However, confirming the existence of such fractionalized excitations has proved challenging and will be discussed during the meeting. In addition, there will be sessions on the discovery of superconductivity in magic-angle graphene. Sessions are planned to discuss new aspects of quantum criticality, on strange metals and electron hydrodynamics. There will be discussions on new theoretical developments to tackle the challenging problems of strong correlations and spin-orbit coupling, as well as, experimental advancements, including time-resolved spectroscopies, the use of electron energy loss spectroscopy to reveal marginal Fermi liquid aspects of strange metals, and the use of chemical-principles to discover topological materials. We have planned a session on entanglement and quantum-information and measurement. And finally, we have reserved the last session for late-breaking developments.
The organizers encourage those from groups underrepresented in science and engineering to attend and has funding earmarked for members of these groups.
The conference will consist of nine sessions, on the topics listed below. The conference chair is currently developing their preliminary program, which will include the names of the invited speakers and discussion leaders for each of these sessions.
