Dear Colleague,

We are organizing a three-week Summer School on Collective Behaviour in Quantum Matter at ICTP in Trieste (27 August – 14 September 2018), and we would be glad if you could forward this message to potential participants in
your group.

The online application form is at .
Deadline for application was 9 April (requesting financial support), or 14 May (otherwise). We will continue to review late applications which arrive until 20 April until the spaces for support are filled

The event, which addresses graduate students and junior researchers, aims to teach a modern course in condensed matter and statistical physics. It combines basic concepts with recent structural and interdisciplinary developments. It features a combination of theory and computational courses, and seminars on experimental progress
in the field. The program will cover a broad variety of topics within condensed matter physics, emphasizing connections with related fields such as quantum information, atomic, optical and high energy physics:

1 – Statistical Mechanics: from foundations to quantum information
2 – Numerical methods: high-level programming and advanced numerical methods
3 – Coherent dynamics: entanglement, decoherence, phase transitions, driven systems
4 – Topological quantum matter: phases and diagnostics
5 – Physical implementations: cold atoms, trapped ions, nanophysics, materials.

With best regards,
C Castelnovo, M Dalmonte, P Fendley, R. Moessner, A Scardicchio
