In a frustrated system, competition between interactions hinders the tendency towards forming an ordered state, allowing for the emergence of new physical phenomena. This programme will bring together experts in the field of frustrated and critical magnetism as well as younger researchers, to discuss recent developments, explore connections between different areas of research, and generate new ideas.

Topics of interest include:

  • Quantum spin liquids in theory and experiment
  • Spin ice, classical and quantum: monopoles, dynamics, and topological order
  • Criticality in magnetic and constrained systems
  • Frustration in context: multiferroicity, charge degrees of freedom, and disorder

The programme will run for four weeks, from 14 July to 8 August (immediately following HFM 2014). We plan to have one or two talks per day with plenty of time for discussions in a relaxed atmosphere.


The preliminary schedule of talks and list of participants are now available.


Participants who have requested accommodation will be housed at three locations in Stockholm:
