The workshop will review spin, charge, and energy transport in novel materials currently at the forefront of the material science. It will consider materials for spintronic, spin-caloritronic, magneto- and electro-caloric devices, heavy fermions and correlated thermoelectric materials, low-dimensional, inhomogeneous, and multilayered materials, and topological insulators and skyrmions. Despite diversity, these materials pose similar emerging questions and unsolved problems, and one of the aims of the workshop is to enable scientists from different fields to engage in interdisciplinary discussion.
