The 30th International Workshop on Condensed Matter theories will be held in Dresden, Germany, through June 5 to 10 of 2006, under the sponsorship of the Max Planck Institute for the Physics of Complex Systems, Dresden and the University of Rostock. The International Workshop on Condensed Matter Theories is an annual scientific meeting since its inception in Sao Paulo, Brazil in 1977.

This series of Workshop is devoted to the development and promulgation of advanced methods for the description of condensed many-body systems. The orientation and the physics context of the Workshop have traditionally been interdisciplinary, where the emphasis is placed on the common concerns of theorists applying advanced many-particle methods in such diverse areas as solid-state, low-temperature, nuclear, particle, statistical, and biological physics as well as in quantum field theory, quantum information and the theory of complex systems. The primary aims of the Workshop are to encourage cross-fertilization between different approaches to various many-body systems, to promote continuing collaborative efforts involving groups of Workshop participants, and to foster communication and cooperation between scientists in developed and developing nations.
Adhering to this tradition, the XXX International Workshop on Condensed Matter Theories (CMT30) will focus broadly on current developments and priorities in quantum many-body theory and its applications to condensed matter systems interpreted to include all of the above-mentioned fields. Although our unifying theme will thus be the treatment of correlations in all quantum many- body systems, CMT30 will also especially highlight recent advances in the fields of light-matter interactions, cluster and mesoscopic physics, complex systems, and quantum information theory. The Workshop will provide a forum at which specialists may be informed of the latest developments and modern techniques in various fields. The interchange of points of view between participants with distinct scientific interests in modern techniques for the description of condensed many-body systems is expected to give rise to a highly stimulating atmosphere. Such exchanges of ideas and technologies are expected to help clarify current key problems.

The style of the Workshop is on invitation basis only. About 50 - 60 invited talks will be delivered at plenary sessions. In addition, a poster session may be considered. Speakers are asked to present their research area for non-specialists. We particularly encourage the participation of young researchers. The invited lectures will be published as Volume 22 of the series Condensed Matter Theories.
Those interested in attending the meeting should fill out the electronical application form by December 15, 2005, indicating a proposed topic or tentative title for their contribution. Qualified applicants will be eligible for consideration as invited participants of CMT30. Invitations for the invited speakers will be send out by mid January, 2006. A second announcement containing the tentative speakers will be prepared at the same time.

Financial Arrangements:
Financial support for CMT30 will be provided by Max Planck Institute for the Physics of Complex Systems. As in past Workshops, the Workshop organizers plan to cover the local expenses for the invited speakers during the 6 days of the Workshop. In general, the organizers will not be able to provide support for travel to Dresden. However, some limited funds may be available for partial travel support of a few participants from developing countries.
