Overview

The past few years have seen tremendous advances in our understanding of strongly interacting quantum systems. By combining progress in theoretical concepts and methods with algorithmic advances, computational methods have shed new light on key open questions in the physics of quantum matter, both for materials with strong electronic correlations and for interacting quantum gases. New materials and new techniques have greatly increased the range of experimental information available. The aim of the proposed conference is to bring leading theorists with expertise in a broad range of computational methods together with experimentalists to discuss the potential of new methods and the accomplishments of existing methods.We will focus on a broad set of physics questions of current interest in the field, for which computational methods and experiment have been bringing or have the potential to bring key new insights.
