Correlated Electron Systems (GRS)
Gordon Research Seminar

Developments at the Frontier of Quantum Many-Electron Physics


June 25-26, 2016


Mount Holyoke College
South Hadley, MA


Cassandra R. Hunt & Siddharth Ashok Parameswaran

Meeting Description

The Gordon Research Seminar on Correlated Electron Systems is a unique forum for graduate students, post-docs, and other scientists with comparable levels of experience and education to present and exchange new data and cutting edge ideas.

This meeting will focus on developments at the frontier of quantum many-electron physics, a rapidly evolving field thanks to recent breakthroughs in materials, new experimental probes, and theoretical methods. Through invited presentations and a poster session, the seminar will immerse attendees in the conversation that will continue with the Correlated Electron Systems Gordon Conference. Topics will depend on the range of submissions we receive, but may include: topological systems and Weyl semimetals, spin ice materials, complex oxides, interfaces, material design, magnetism, ultrafast behavior and control, and many body localization.

Related Meeting

This GRS was held in conjunction with the "Correlated Electron Systems" Gordon Research Conference (GRC). Refer to the associated GRC program page for more information.
