Conformal field theory (CFT) is a body of mathematics that was originally developed in close connection to string theory. In the last decade CFT techniques have become increasingly important to describe exotic states in the quantum Hall system and also in rapidly rotating Bose condensates. Particularly intriguing is the possibility to use the non-Abelian statistics of the quasiparticles in these systems in the context of quantum computing. The aim of the proposed conference is to bring together experts in quantum Hall physics, rotating Bose condensates, and applied conformal field theory, to give a set of talks that will cover the most recent advances in the field.
