Gauge fields are fundamental for our modern understanding of physics at all scales.
At high energies, the dynamics of elementary particles is governed by the exchange
of gauge bosons. At mesoscopic scales, external gauge fields can dramatically change
the properties of a material, seminal examples being the quantum Hall effects.
Recently, the experimental realization of artificial gauge fields for neutral ultracold
atoms has opened a door to the quantum simulation of topological quantum effects
in well-controlled environments. The aim of this Winter School is to train a new
generation of young researchers on the subject of artificial gauge fields.
