Workshop on Ordering and Dynamics of Correlated Quantum Systems

Évora, Portugal, 21-25 October 2019

The Workshop

This workshop is supported by several European and US projects and research centers. Our aim is to generate a lively exchange of ideas between researchers working in distinct but interrelated fields. Advances in recent years have witnessed an exciting and promising confluence of the areas of strongly correlated many-body quantum systems, including computational condensed matter physics and quantum information theory.

Topics to be discussed at the workshop will include: quantum chaos, quantum information dynamics, quantum criticality, thermalization and open quantum systems, ergodicity breaking, dynamically induced ordering, novel states of matter in cold atomic gases, topological photonics, and topology in condensed matter. On the theoretical side, analytical as well as computational approaches will be highlighted. On the experimental side, the focus will be on interacting quantum systems, including Bose-Einstein condensates with dipolar interactions, strongly correlated gases of Rydberg atoms, photonic crystals with symmetry-protected topological phases and many-electron systems out of equilibrium. The workshop will bring together a number of established experts, as well as many talented young scientists, to further explore, develop, and exploit the connections between these forefront areas of research.

Workshop history and location

Previous Évora workshops have an established tradition and have been highly successful in drawing together leading researchers and young scientists in a lively and engaging intellectual environment. A UNESCO World Heritage city, beautiful medieval town of Évora is the capital of Portugal’s south-central Alentejo region, and the month of October is an ideal period for local excurions to explore both the city and its surroundings.
