International Seminar on

Non-Perturbative Approach to Disordered Systems and Quantum Hall Effect

August 7 - 27, 2000

Scientific coordinators:
Vladimir I. Falko Alexey Tsvelik
Lancaster University, UK Oxford University. UK

The aim of this seminar is to bring together, on one side, researchers with expertise in disordered systems and, on the other side, specialists in non-perturbative techniques. There are several areas where this collaboration is likely to be fruitful. These ones include applications of conformal field theory to disordered systems in a critical regime (the plateau transitions in quantum Hall effect), the sigma model description of mesoscopic phenomena and correlated electron systems.
