This conference will focus on the observable signatures of topology in electronic, photonic, phononic, and atomic systems, with participation by leading theorists and experimentalists. The conference will offer an excellent opportunity for cross-fertilisation of ideas and an exciting learning experience for early career researchers.

  • Topological insulators and superconductors
  • Dirac and Weyl semimetals
  • Time-dependent and non-equilibrium topological systems
  • Photonic systems
  • Cold atoms
  • Phononic systems
  • Electronic-structure and ab-initio calculations
  • Transport properties of topological systems
  • Experimental detection of topological properties
  • Physics of unconventional surface states
  • Interaction and disorder effects in topological systems
  • Hetero- and hybrid-structures
  • Electrodynamics in topological materials
  • Quantum-field-theory approaches
  • Applications and devices
