This tenth annual one-day symposium aims to provide an opportunity for condensed matter researchers in Southwest Ontario to gather and discuss informally their most recent research. The general format of the meeting consists of 2 guest speakers and 5-7 contributed talks. The names of the contributing speakers and title of their talks will be announced later. Registration begins at 9:30 am. The meeting is expected to start around 9:45 am and end between 5-5:30 pm. A lunch will be provided by the Black Hole Bistro.
There will be two keynote speaker for the symposium; Professor Andrew Mackenzie from the Max Planck Institute for Chemical Physics of Solids,Dresden and Professor Anders Sandvik from Boston University. Their talk titles will be announced at a later date.
Registration for this event will open shortly.
