Quantum Materials Canada 2021

LOCATION: virtual Zoom meetings 

(the link will be sent only to registered persons)

DATES: Tuesdays May 11, 18 and 25, June 1 and 15

This meeting will be held in the spirit of the CIFAR/Quantum Materials meetings with only a few talks, with most of the time being devoted to discussions.


Following sustained efforts over thirty years by CIFAR to build a thriving research community in Quantum Materials, we wish to keep this community alive and possibly extend its reach.

To this effect, we had planned for May 2020 the first informal 2.5 days Quantum Materials Canada meeting, to be held once a year. Unfortunately, because of Covid, that meeting had to be cancelled. We want to revive it more or less as originally planned, but in a virtual format in early Summer 2021 in a series of five short events in May and June.
