Venue and Time:

The program will be held at ICQM (Room 607, Science Building 5) in Peking University from June 6-June 10, 2011.

Scope and Goal:

In this program, we would like to explore selected topics of frontiers in modern condensed matter physics research. Topics may include topological insulator, quantum computation architecture, iron and copper-oxide based superconductivity, interacting atomic gases, and other correlated many-body systems.


The program is planed to be a mixture of summer school and research workshop. The invited speakers will give talks with rather complete and self-contained introductions so that young students/postdocs can follow. At the same time, cutting-edge research will be discussed in details. Blackboard talks are also encouraged. The plan is to have a rather small, but intimate program which helps more in-depth discussions between speakers and participants.

Invited Speakers:

Jason Alicea, UC, Irvine
Srinivas Raghu, Rice University
Yong-Baek Kim, Univ. of Toronto
Kai Sun, Univ. of Maryland
Hong Yao, UC, Berkeley
Hui Zhai, Tsinghua Univ.
Shou-Cheng Zhang, Stanford Univ.
Fa Wang, MIT
Chi Zhang, Princeton Univ.

Participants:

Students, postdocs, as well as researchers in relevent fields are encouraged to participate. Because part of the goal is to have young students/postdocs inspired and benefited from the program, they are particularly encouraged to attend. View the list of participants here.
