This workshop is intended to introduce participants to several active
areas of condensed matter research, ranging from correlated electrons
and novel electronic properties at the nanoscale to soft condensed
matter. It will also strengthen links within the theoretical community
on the West Coast and serve as an introduction to the Center for
Nanoscale Science and Engineering at UCR.
This is a second meeting in the series of biennial theory workshops
that continue the tradition of the Lake Arrowhead meetings. These once popular California Theory meetings were successfully revived by
Leon Balents and Joel Moore two years ago at UCSB. We would like to keep
this tradition going.
In addition to a limited number
of invited speakers, each faculty and postdoctoral participant is encouraged to give a 10 minute
advertisement of his or her work.
The workshop will begin in the morning on Saturday, November 1, and end after lunch on Sunday, November 2.
