ICMT Workshops

  • 2016 Summer School: Introduction to topological phases of matter, August 8-12, 2016


    We would ike to cordially invite you to participate in the 2016 summer school workshop “Introduction to topological phases of matter,” funded by the National Science Foundation. The summer 2016 lectures will take place in Illinois, at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign campus, between August 8 and August 12, 2016.

  • Urbana-Chicago Fest 2016, April 2, 2016


    On April 2, 2016 the ICMT will host a joint symposium on condensed matter theory involving participants from the University of Chicago and University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. This gathering will bring together graduate students, postdoctoral researchers, visitors and faculty from these institutions in a relaxed atmosphere for talks and informal discussions on exciting topics at the frontiers of condensed matter theory and related areas.
