Topological Semimetals and Beyond

Recent exciting developments in the classification of topological semimetals have greatly enriched the realm of topological matter. Topological semimetals, as opposed to topological insulators, exhibit exotic phenomena both in their bulk and on their surfaces. The workshop aims at bringing together leading experts, postdocs and students in theoretical and experimental condensed matter physics and material science to explore the plethora of phenomena and the ways they come into play in the increasing list of candidate materials for their realization.

Among the Topics in Focus

  • Dirac, Weyl and nodal semimetals
  • Anomalies in magnetoresistance
  • Material design and low dimensional systems
  • Interaction effects and superconductivity
  • New frontiers in topological classification


Special events
