Quantum Criticality &
Novel Phases 2017

Competing order and exotic phases

Berlin, Germany, Feb. 26 - March 01, 2017

Welcome to the QCNP 2017

The International Conference on Quantum Criticality and Novel Phases (QCNP) will take place in Berlin, Germany, from February 26th to March 1st, 2017. QCNP 2017 is organized, like the past two conferences, by the Max- Planck Institute for Chemical Physics of Solids, Dresden.

The conference is devoted to quantum critical phenomena in quantum spin systems, in itinerant d-metal compounds, and in Kondo-lattice systems as well as to novel phases, like unconventional superconductivity or topological order, in the vicinity of magnetic instabilities. Both experimental and theoretical work will be highlighted. In addition, the QCNP2017 is specifically devoted to the achievements of F. Steglich and H. v. Loehneysen who are extremely influential in the field and whose 75th and 70th birthday, respectively, we celebrate. Prior to the conference, a tutorial session will be organized on Sunday, February 26th, as an introduction to some recent developments discussed at the conference.
