Quantum Materials in the Quantum Information Era

International Workshop
25 - 29 September 2023

This one week workshop will bring together communities working on topics in
quantum materials potentially relevant to quantum information for an intense
exchange. We will highlight the progress and prospects for advancement across
a variety of quantum material platforms meant to promote exchange of ideas in
this nascent area.
There will be nine sessions comprised of invited talks in quantum magnetism,
2D systems, and novel topological electronic systems including combined topics
and recent developments. Junior participants will have the opportunity to present
a poster as well as the chance to be selected for a contributed talk. Significant time
is dedicated to discussion within the workshop.

Topics include

  • Quantum Magnetism
  • Probing Entanglement in Quantum Spin Systems
  • Topology and Quantum Magnets
  • Low-Dimensional Systems
  • Edge Mode Entanglement
  • Moiré Quantum Matter
  • Novel Topological Electronic Systems
  • Topological Superconductors
  • Entanglement in Kondo Systems
