The aim of this conference is to bring together the main experts in the field of Weyl-semimetal physics. It will be a venue to discuss the most recent developments, both from the theoretical and experimental viewpoints, and at the same time it will provide a comprehensive overview to scientists who wish to enter this field.

TOPICS:
  • Electronic-structure and ab-initio calculations  
  • Material realisations
  • Transport properties of chiral systems
  • Experimental detection of Weyl quasiparticles
  • Physics of unconventional surface states
  • Interaction and disorder effects in topological systems
  • Hetero- and hybrid-structures
  • Electrodynamics in Weyl materials  
  • Quantum-field-theory approaches
  • Applications and devices
  • Beyond Dirac and Weyl fermions
