The successful ICAM workshop, Itinerant Frustration, took place at Trinity College, Cambridge University from July 20-22, 2015. Thirty-three participants were involved in the 3-day meeting aimed at stimulating focused discussions between theorists and experimentalists through overview presentations, short topical seminars and chaired discussion time. The overview talks were given by C. Batista, C. Broholm, Z. Hiroi and Y. Motome, on topics including phenomenology and theoretical modelling in heavy fermion and Anderson/Kondo lattice systems, anomalous Hall physics, materials, phenomenology, and experimental techniques, and frustrated magnetism with mobile defects.
The meeting was able to successfully bring together two communities, working on electron systems and on frustrated magnetism, in order to explore the rich interface provided by materials where both phenomena are simultaneously present. Several discussions leading into small groups took place during the meeting, which several potential avenues for research collaboration were explored. This is a young and burgeoning field, and the meeting helped define key questions and challenges that will need to be addressed.
