Shedding light on emergent quantum phenomena

The interaction of many simple elements, each obeying basic rules, often produces remarkably rich and complex new behavior. In the quantum realm, this gives rise to exotic effects such as superconductivity, superfluidity, magnetism, new types of 'quasi'-particles, and new phases of matter. This symposium, held at the Internationales Wissenschaftsforum Heidelberg (IWH) in March 2014 will be among the first to focus on emergent phenomena in ultracold quantum gases. Highlighting cutting edge research from around the world, we strive to create a unified understanding of many-body phenomena in interacting quantum systems.
