COR S.O.: New Physics due to Spin-Orbit coupling in CORrelated electron systems
August 04, 2015 – August 14, 2015

The school aims at bringing together Ph.D. students and young scientists from all over the world working (or who want to start a new research path) in new phenomena emerging from the competition between strong correlation, spin-orbit or other non-trivial topological interaction.
Main topics will include
• Spin-orbit Mott insulators
• Topological Kondo Insulators
• Novel magnetic phases and quantum spin liquids
• New topological correlated phases
• Spin-Orbit effects in oxide heterostructures
A detailed project for the school is available here: corso2015
Lectures will be given by recognized experts of the field over a 10-day full immersion (August 4-14) into the friendly and stimulating environment of the IESC in Cargese, Corse (France). Moreover lectures will be supported by focus-topic talks given by international invited speakers.

A complete list of speakers and a tentative program will appear soon.
The number of applicants will be limited, information about school fee and application deadlines will also soon available (tentatively at the beginning of April).
