After a three-years break, this workshop, 'Trends in the Theory of Quantum Materials 2022', continues the very successful bilateral workshop between Japanese and Swiss physicists that has been held previously on a yearly basis since 2009.

It aims at bringing together both communities of condensed matter people (mainly theorists) working on quantum materials and beyond.

The workshop also aims at nurturing scientific exchanges, collaborations, and friendships among young physicists between the two countries.

Main topics of the workshop
  • Quantum spin systems, multiferroics, and spintronics
  • Topological phases of matter
  • Dynamics of (open) quantum systems
  • Dirac and Weyl fermions
  • Quantum entanglement and its applications
  • Computational correlated physics and its methods
