February 18 - 21, 2013
at the Campus of the Ruhr-University Bochum, Germany
(Veranstaltungszentrum, level 04, lecture hall 3)
The workshop will focus on the ultrafast dynamics of strongly correlated systems ranging from Mott insulators to unconventional superconductors. The goal of the meeting is to present the state of the art in experimental investigation and theoretical understanding of strongly excited states far from equilibrium. With the above goal we plan to have an exchange of ideas between experimental and theoretical approaches which are used to investigate the excited state, its relaxation, and in particular the interactions that mediate this relaxation in Mott insulators and High-Tc superconductors. Our goal is to bring together leading experimental and theoretical experts working in this field, and have open and constructive discussion about recent developments and open questions in this rapidly developing branch of experimental and theoretical condensed matter physics.
