The scope of this meeting covers broadly electronic transport phenomena in materials and heterostructures where quantum geometric and many-body effects lead to novel behavior and functionality. Our goal is to bring together the leading scientists working in the key areas of the field as well as the young researchers and students interested in these areas. The program starts during the weekend of Oct 8-9 with introductory tutorials, aimed at the advanced undergraduate and graduate students. The main agenda will include pedagogical (60 min) lectures, technical invited (40 min) and contributed (20 min) talks, all including about 1/3 of time for discussions, a poster session, and plenty of breaks for more informal interactions.

The focus is on quantum transport in nanoscale, mesoscopic, low-dimensional heterostructures and novel quantum materials, covering, in particular, the following topics:

  • quantum transport in low-dimensional systems
  • collective spin transport and magnetic dynamics
  • (pseudo)spin textures and Berry-phase effects
  • topological insulators and graphene
  • new quantum materials and heterostructures
  • related topics in nanoscience
