Overview

SCES’07 will cover a wide range of topics in the diverse area of strongly correlated systems. The correlated electronic and magnetic materials to be featured include f-electron based heavy fermion intermetallics, d-electron based transition metal compounds, and organic solids. Nanoscale structures and ultracold atoms in optical lattices, which have emerged as model systems to study correlation physics, will also be addressed.

The conference will seek to deepen our understanding of the rich physical phenomena that arise from correlation effects. The anticipated focus will be on quantum phase transitions, non-Fermi liquid phenomena, quantum magnetism, unconventional superconductivity, and metal-insulator transitions. Both experimental and theoretical work will be highlighted. Mathematical models and computational studies will also be covered. The conference will provide a forum to present new research and exchange new ideas. It will also facilitate cross fertilization among the different subjects, and introduce these subjects to junior researchers. Presentations will consist of plenary, invited and contributed talks/symposia complemented by busy poster sessions.
