Statue of Liberty

One of the most exciting discoveries in condensed matter physics in the last decade is the torsional oscillator anomaly in solid 4He possibly indicating the long-sought supersolid state of matter. This discovery has spawned an explosion of both experimental and theoretical studies clearly indicating that the quantum solid 4He is richer in new phenomena than ever imagined from the original discovery.

Workshop goals and focus:

Workshop will bring together theorists and experimentalists from all over the world to discuss their active work, new ideas and recent results in these exciting fields. The program will include ample time for informal discussions. Invited talks will be about 45 minutes long and include time for questions. We will also have a poster session where all participants are encouraged to present their most recent research results.

Some travel support will be available.
