Correlations and coherence in quantum systems

Évora, Portugal, 8-12 October 2012

The Workshop

The workshop is promoted by several 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 such as unconventional superconductivity, spin quantum liquids, application of AdS/CFT to condensed matter, ultra-cold atoms, and quantum information.

Workshops in Evora have 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 and sometimes outlasted the closing hours of the bars scattered around the center of town. 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.

This workshop is dedicated to the memory of Adilet Imambekov and Zlatko Tesanovic, speakers of previous workshops held in Évora (see In memoriam).
