Quantum Matter Out of Equilibrium Symposium taking place soon!

31 March 2016

4th-5th April

This series of symposia take place every few months and typically last for two days. Their purpose is to bring together young scientists (mainly PhD students and Postdocs) interested on topological quantum information promote their recent work and inspire collaborations.

To register please email you name and institution to topo-symp@leeds.ac.uk with 'Registration' as the subject heading.

Please see below for the schedule the day will follow:
