Topological states of matter, such as topological insulators, topological superconductors, and quantum Hall liquids, are of great recent interest, both theoretically and experimentally. The purpose of this program is to gather experts on these different types of topological states, to discuss recent developments and create an exciting atmosphere where we can come up with new ideas.


The unifying theme of the workshop is topological states of matter. Within this theme, the following overlapping topics will be in focus during the workshop (the timing of the topics might vary, depending on the participants present):

  • Week 1: Topological Insulators: general properties and experiments
  • Week 2: Topological Insulators: hybrid structures and Majorana fermions
  • Week 3: Properties of Dirac Fermions in topological insulators and graphene
  • Week 4: Topological phases in Quantum Hall systems
