Topological Matter School 2017



Miramar Palace, in Donostia-San Sebastián, Spain


This one-week school provides pedagogical lectures by leading experts on the field supported with practical exercises, including a session on numerical quantum transport calculation of topological systems. There will be a review session on the major experimental achievements in the field.
In addition, a special session will be dedicated to the connection between high energy physics and topological matter.

The lecturers for the upcoming school are:

  • Alexander Altland (Cologne)
  • Jens Bardarson (Dresden/Stockholm)
  • Haim Beidenkopf (Rehovot)
  • Andrei Bernevig (Princeton)
  • Erwann Bocquillon (Paris)
  • Claudia Felser (Dresden)
  • Adolfo Grushin (Berkeley/Grenoble)
  • Titus Neupert (Zürich)
  • Leslie Schoop (Stuttgart)
  • Ivo Souza (Donostia-San Sebastián)
  • Michael Wimmer (Delft)

While the school is primarily aimed at instructing master and graduate students and young postdoctoral researchers, more senior scientists who want to acquaint themselves with the subject of the school are also welcome.

The school comprises five working days (August 21 - 25). The registration fee of 300 Euro include coffee breaks, lunches and school dinner.  A limited number of fellowships for young students are available.

Accommodation is not included in the registration fee. The organisation has arranged affordable accommodation in a student residence hall close by to the school site (Residencia Villa Alaidi). Participants can of course make their own bookings separately, but are advised to book rooms as early as possible, the summer season is very busy and hotels fill up quickly.
