International WORKSHOP on
Strongly Correlated Electron systems in high magnetic Fields
(S C E F)
Ecole de Physique des Houches – France
May 20th – 25th 2012

Strongly correlated electron systems provide some of the greatest challenges of condensed matter physics. These quantum materials often lead to the discovery of new electronic states of matter and their remarkable properties may be used in tomorrow’s technological applications in areas as diverse as energy-related materials or electronic devices. Extreme conditions of temperatures, pressures and magnetic fields are used to explore a complex landscape of phenomena but also to manipulate the various phases, by controlling the delicate balance and the quantum transitions between them.

The goal of this international workshop is to bring together experimentalists and theorists interested in the use of high magnetic fields to study strongly correlated electron systems. Among the topics to be covered:

  • High temperature and other unconventional superconductors
  • Quantum Hall systems
  • Low dimensional and frustrated magnetic systems
  • Graphene and graphite
  • Topological insulators
  • Oxide interfaces
  • System at the extreme quantum limit
  • Heavy fermions

We plan to organize few plenary talks summarizing key topics in experiment and theory, about 30 regular talks (invited and contributed), poster sessions and a panel discussion on the future of high magnetic fields for studying strongly correlated electron systems.

This meeting is part of the thematic network ’High field physics of strongly correlated electron systems’ of the Euromagnet II project, a coordinated approach to access, experimental development and scientific exploitation of all European large infrastructures for high magnetic fields.

The workshop is limited to 70 participants so we encourage you to register as soon as possible.
