This workshop is dedicated to the memory of Shi-Jian Gu, invited speaker of a previous workshop held in Évora.
The workshop is promoted by several European and US projects and European and Chinese research centers. Our main aim is to generate a lively exchange of ideas between researchers working in the different but nevertheless related fields. Advances over the past ten years have seen an exciting confluence of the areas of strongly correlated many-body systems, computational condensed matter physics, AdS/CFT correspondence, and quantum information theory.
The main focus areas of the workshop will be quantum criticality and exotic ground states, topological matter and Dirac materials, AdS/CFT correspondence, and quantum information. Analytical as well as computational approaches to problems in these areas will be discussed. It will bring together a number of established experts as well as many talented young scientists to further explore and exploit the connections between many body theory, quantum information, and quantum criticality. Invited speakers are drawn from the theoretical, experimental, and computational physics communities.
Previous workshops at Evora have been highly successful in drawing together leading researchers and young scientists. Workshops in Evora have actually a long tradition. The beautiful medieval town offers an ideal setting for bringing together people working in different but related fields. In the past, discussions often continued after the last session of the day. The month of October is an ideal period for visiting the Alentejo region, where excursions to the surroundings of Evora and its megalithic monuments can be made at moderate temperatures.Anfiteatro 131-A

Grants and I2CAM Sponsored Tutorial DayICAM support is available for a limited number of qualified junior scientists. It includes registration and lodging and some partial support for travel. Young researchers under 36 who wish to apply for ICAM support can do it in Registration. Sunday October 5 is a I2CAM Sponsored Tutorial Day. It is mandatory that all young researchers requesting an ICAM grant attend the tutorials, which will begin at 3:00 PM. Please make sure to arrive in time to attend.
Support from other sources is available for a limited number of qualified junior scientists from European institutions. It is also mandatory that all young researchers requesting such other grant type attend the above tutorials.
