Strongly correlated electron systems remain at the center of experimental and
theoretical activities in condensed-matter physics. These complex systems exhibit
self-organized behavior and the search for the underlying physics principles that
govern them lies at the heart of current research. The vitality of the field is
fueled by a stream of new theoretical ideas which continue to profoundly change
our view of quantum materials. Over the last few years, a series of experimental
breakthroughs has made it possible to design complex quantum systems with an
unprecedented level of control. These breakthroughs range from using gate
dielectrics to transform insulators into metals and superconductors without
disorder, to the use of low-energy pulse-probe laser optics to convert underdoped
Mott insulators into transient superconductors.
