June 17-18, UC Irvine
This two-day summer school for condensed matter theory graduate students is focusing on some frontier developments in strongly correlated, topological, and spin systems. The frontiers that will be covered are ranging from Bethe Ansatz, DMRG, and topological states of matter to spintronics, novel experimental methods, and ongoing search for exotic phases. The school is supported by the National Science Foundation and the University of California, Irvine. It will take place on the UCI campus from June 17-18, 2019.
The registration is free, but necessary to have an official participation.
Attending students will be fully reimbursed for their travel expenses and will be provided with a shared room in a nice hotel (breakfast, parking, pool included). Hotel can also provide shuttle to UCI.
Location: Natural Sciences II 1201
