To provide students with an exposure to modern cutting edge topics in Quantum Matter Physics, with a unique interaction between junior scientists, from the US and South America. The school will be divided between core lectures on more fundamental aspects of Quantum Matter Physics and more specialized lectures.
This series of schools is co-funded by ICAM and FAPERJ (the state agency of Rio de Janeiro for founding research) and is hosted by the CBPF, in Rio de Janeiro. The first school organized in 2007 was related with topics on Emergent Behavior in Quantum Matter and the 93 participants were supported by FAPERJ, I2CAM, NSF and CAPES (www.cbpf.br/I2CAM-FAPERJ). The second I2CAM/FAPERJ school focused on Biological Physics was organized from 16-21 March, 2008 with 80 participants (http://i2cam.org/conference/faperj08). The third I2CAM/FAPERJ School focused on Condensed Soft Matter Physics and was held 17-23 May, 2009. (http://icamconferences.org/faperj09/)
The fourth ICAM/FAPERJ Summer School, with a focus on Emergent Matter, titled New Phenomena in Quantum Matter, will be held in Rio de Janeiro 6th-12th June, 2010. The conference is co-funded by ICAM and FAPERJ (the state agency of Rio de Janeiro for founding research) and will be hosted by the CBPF, in Rio de Janeiro.
There will be approximately three lectures per day, in the ICAM format of 60 mins talk + 30 mins discussion that has already been pioneered in the Cargese summer schools. With support of I2CAM, FAPERJ, NSF, CAPES and CBPF we have funding to support approximately 40 students from North America and from South America. Additional students, coming on their own finance from other locations will also be welcome, in addition to local students from several universities and research centers in and around Rio de Janeiro.
