General information

The workshop will focus on quantum phenomena in transition metal compounds and in model systems, including high temperature superconductivity, frustrated magnets and spin-orbital systems. The purpose of the workshop is to exchange ideas and to promote collaborations in this very active field of research. The workshop is organized to celebrate the 650 Anniversary of the Jagiellonian University and is financed partly by the research project of the Polish National Science Center (NCN), the Jagiellonian University and the Scientific Center of Knowledge (KNOW).


The following topics are planned to be covered and discussed during the workshop:


Meeting program and organization

The workshop will cover the above topics in dedicated sessions during three days. Most contributions will be presented as 30 minutes talks by international experts, including discussion. Poster session will also be organized, with posters displayed during the entire workshop (the posters will be discussed during the poster session and during the breaks). The abstracts of all contributions will be included in a conference booklet which will be distributed at the registration.

The workshop attendance is by invitation only. Scientists interested in presenting a poster are requested to contact the Workshop Organizers.

The workshop is a satellite conference to the European Conference PHYSICS OF MAGNETISM 2014 (PM'14) to be held in Poznań, Poland (June, 23 - June, 27 2014) and the workshop participants are encouraged to consider joining this meeting.

The conference will be held in Collegium Maius, the historic oldest building of the Jagiellonian University in the centre of Cracow. The guesthouse is located ca. 700m from the conference site. The historic city of Cracow (Kraków) may be visited before or after the workshop.
