Dates: November 3-5, 2017

Location: Institute for Condensed Matter Theory
Room 190 Engineering Sciences Building
1101 West Springfield Avenue, Urbana, IL 61801

9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.


The Institute for Condensed Matter Theory will host a workshop with a focus on recent developments in Chaos, Dualities, and Topology in condensed matter. The workshop is partially supported by the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation through our Moore Theory Center. The workshop will bring together graduate students, postdoctoral researchers, visitors, and faculty from across the country and will feature approximately 20 external speakers. The workshop will take place over the weekend of November 3, 4, 5 with several talk sessions on each day separated by breaks for informal discussions. Depending on interest there will also be a poster session featuring research from local scientists and students as well as any interested external attendees.
