Speaker: Multiple speakers
Time: Feb 18-20, 2019
This workshop, held at UBC-Vancouver Campus, will focus on aspects of topological protection outside the traditional realm of electronic systems such as topological insulators and semimetals. Great strides have been made recently in applying concepts of topology to photonic, acoustic, cold atom and mechanical structures as well as electrical circuits, Floquet, polariton and various related systems, creating what has become known as “synthetic topological matter”. The workshop will bring these new developments into focus and will showcase recent successes on both experimental and theoretical fronts. It will also help facilitate discussions of outstanding problems as well as key challenges for future investigations.
Program and Logistics
The workshop will begin on Monday, February 18 in the morning and conclude on Wednesday, February 20 after lunch. A workshop dinner for invited speakers will be held on Tuesday evening.
