Localization: Emergent Platforms and Novel Trends

International Workshop
16 - 20 September 2024

Localization is a vibrant research field, with several subfields. The workshop will bring together scientists working on Anderson and many-body localization, including leading experts and young researchers, theorists and experimentalists, to discuss recent progress and prospective research directions. A particular focus will be put on emergent experimental platforms and novel directions in the field.

Topics include

  • Anderson transitions
  • Localization in cold-atom systems
  • Localization in topological matter
  • Localization in non-Hermitian problems
  • Measurement-induced transitions: Relation to localization
  • Many-body localization (MBL)
  • MBL transitions
  • MBL in state-of-the-art quantum processors and simulators
  • Novel computational approaches to Anderson localization and MBL
  • Localization in strongly correlated systems
  • Interplay of localization and superconductivity
