Condensed Matter Theory in the Metropolis

November 12-13, 2018

ICTP-SAIFR, São Paulo, Brazil

Auditorium of IFT-UNESP


The goal of this meeting is to promote collaborations and exchanges between the groups working on hard condensed matter theory in the city of São Paulo and nearby scientific poles, such as Campinas and São Carlos. We also invite a few speakers from other parts of the country to give more breadth to the topics covered by the event. We intend to make it an annual event to strengthen the condensed matter community in the region.
We particularly encourage the participation of students and postdocs. We believe that students and early-career scientists can benefit tremendously from this type of event since they can get exposure to new topics and techniques, as well as find a great opportunity for networking.

There is no registration fee and everybody is welcome to participate.

Preliminary list of topical sessions:

– Computational Modelling of Materials
– Electronic Structure Calculations
– Strongly Correlated Electronic Systems
– Superconductivity
– Topological Phases of Matter
