#### New quantum states of matter in and out of equilibrium - Conference

**May 21, 2012 - May 25, 2012**

**Abstract**

During the last decade a host of experiments has established the existence of highly unconventional states of matter in a variety of low dimensional quantum systems. These include equilibrium states characterized by topological properties as well as stationary states in out of equilibrium situations. Both of these give access to hitherto unexplored areas of many-body quantum physics. This research workshop will bring together experts in these areas, which have witnessed compelling advances during the last few years. In this conference the latest updates will be presented in the context of the fertile ground provided by the ongoing GGI workshop. Details of the scientific program will be communicated later. Please, when registering please specify your precise dates of attendance to the conference.
