6th IACS-APCTP Joint Conference on Novel Oxide Materials and Low Dimensional Systems

December 17-20 (Thu-Sat), 2014
Sangsan Mathematical Building, Seoul National University

Novel and emergent materials have attracted major interest in condensed matter research because of their wide ranging physical properties that are not only important for basic research but also for various applications. The major purpose of this conference is to present and discuss about cutting-edge theoretical work on novel and emergent materials that will include multiferroics, novel iron based superconductors, graphene and topological insulators. In particular, Graphene and topological insulators constitute a novel class of materials in condensed matter physics whose low-energy quasiparticles obey Dirac-like, rather than Schrodinger like, equations. Consequently, they display a host of novel features such as unconventional quantum Hall effect, Klein paradox, transmission resonance, magnetic switching, possible presence of Majorana Fermions as low-energy modes, and possible realization of axion electrodynamics in condensed matter systems. The main purpose of the present meeting will be to discuss about recent progresses in theory (both ab-initio as well as many-body approaches) to understand these novel materials. The conference will also have special talks by leading experimentalists in the Asia Pacific region working in the area mentioned above.

Korea-China-Kazakhstan Meeting on Stellar Dynamics

December 15-17 (Mon-Wed), 2014
Sangsan Mathematical Building and Buliding 19 (Astronomy Department), Seoul National University

This is an extension of the China-Korea Joint Meeting on Stellar Dynamics that has been taking place annually since 2009. From the year 2014, we decided to include Kazakhstan as an effort to expand the scope of the meeting. The subject of the meeting is mostly dynamical understanding of dense stellar systems, but any related subject such as gravitational wave astronomy has been also included. This year, it will take place at Seoul National University, Seoul, Korea, and hosted by the Center for Theoretical Physics (CTP). Most of the talks are arranged on December 15-16 (Monday-Tuesday). December 17 (Wednesday) will be devoted for free discussions among various groups. For this purpose, we reserved room 206/207 in building 19 (astronomy building). Official closing of the meeting is planned at 15:30 on December 17 (Wednesday).
