Condensed Matter Physics in the City 2020 took place online this year under the heading “Deep Challenges of Quantum Materials: insights from entanglement and emergence”, as we refused to allow COVID-19 to put a stop to this long-running series organised yearly by the Hubbard Theory Consortium (formed by Imperial College London, University College London, the University of Kent and Royal Holloway University of London).

This year’s event brought together speakers and topics of both Condensed Matter Physics in the City and the planned Summer School on Foundations of Quantum Matter, originally planned to take place in June 2020 in London and the Isle of Skye, respectively.
