Overview

The recent discovery of high-temperature superconductivity in the Fe-based pnictide materials has led to a dramatic increase of world-wide research on these novel superconducting materials. This workshop will bring together a number of the leading researchers working in this area to review the status of the field. The workshop will focus on experimental work with theoretical overview talks. The workshop will feature a series of invited talks with ample time for open discussion and a poster session. A total of 40-60 participants are anticipated.
