18.04.2011. :: XVIII Symposium on Condensed Matter Physics

The 18th Symposium on Condensed Matter Physics (SFKM2011) will be held in Belgrade, Serbia on 18 - 22 April 2011. The aim of SFKM2011 is to provide an international forum for the presentation and discussion of recent advances in Condensed Matter Physics, broadly defined, both in theory and in experiment.

The Symposium will consist of invited plenary lectures, contributed short oral presentations, and posters sessions. A special session is planned on Monday April 18, 2011, in the Ceremonial Hall of the Serbian Academy of Science and Arts, to celebrate 100th anniversary of the discovery of superconductivity and 25th anniversary of the discovery of high-temperature superconductivity. Subsequent sessions will be held at the Kolarac Foundation building. A conference excursion is planned on Wednesday April 20, 2011.

Conference presentations are solicited from a broad range of topics within the Condensed Matter Physics, including (but not limited to) the following:
  • Superconductivity and highly-correlated systems: Heavy fermions; Quantum critical phenomena; Pairing mechanisms; High Tc superconductivity; New materials with strong correlations; Dynamical properties from time-resolved experiments

  • Surface, interface and low-dimensional physics: Graphene; Carbon and other nanotubes; Complex oxide interfaces

  • Semiconductor physics: Theory of electronic structure, Quantum dots and wires, Photonic crystals, High magnetic fields phenomena, Ultra-fast phenomena, Quantum fluids and condensed matter with cold atoms

  • Magnetism: Magnetic structures; Magnetic phase transitions; Magneto-electronics and spintronics, Magnetic nanoparticles)

  • Phase transitions

  • Ferroelectricity and Multiferroics

  • Polymer physics

The Symposium is organized by Faculty of Physics University of Belgrade, in cooperation with: Institute of Physics Belgrade and Institute of Nuclear Sciences "Vinča", under the patronage of Serbian Physics Society and Serbian Academy of Sciences and Arts.

Conference sponsors: Brookhaven National Laboratory (USA) and the Ministry of Science and Technology of Serbia.
