Participation is by invitation only. All participants must register.
The Simons Collaboration on Ultra Quantum Matter (UQM) endeavors to develop the theory of highly entangled quantum matter and to work towards physical realization, particularly in synthetic matter systems. Mirroring the convergence of different communities in recent exciting developments, the UQM Annual Meeting will bring together condensed matter, high-energy, quantum information and atomic physicists to discuss advances in classifying and characterizing topological and fracton matter, in dualities and other approaches to strongly coupled gapless phases, as well as in novel platforms to realize and probe highly entangled quantum states in the laboratory.
