The physics of interacting Dirac systems has witnessed an explosion of activity in recent years, with the focus clearly shifting from the description of topologically non-trivial band structures and single-particle physics to the many-body and non-equilibrium effects. This includes the emerging understanding of the Hubbard model on honeycomb lattice, nodal semimetals and Weyl elementary excitations, graphene in effective magnetic fields, systems with the quadratic band touching points, and alike. The Conference will focus on different aspects of the interplay between interactions and topology including but not limited to the discussion of: - Topological phases of interacting Dirac systems - Effects of disorder and Anderson localization - Real and artificial magnetic fields coupled to Dirac fermions - Effects of long-range interaction in real and artificial 2D and 3D materials - Non-equilibrium dynamics and quantum transport in Dirac and Weyl systems - Engineering of interaction-induced topological states The goal of this conference is to bring together a diverse group of theorists and experimentalists actively working on the above and related problems, for a week of talks and discussions. The program will include invited and contributed talks and a poster session. Time will be reserved for informal discussions within several round tables devoted to both “smoking-gun” experiments and theories. The poster session with short presentation of posters will give an opportunity for young scientists to present their recent results.
