Strongly Correlated Electrons Systems

August 17, 2008 – August 22, 2008

Location: Buzios, Brazil


Organized by Elisa Saitovitch, Magda Fontes, and Mucio Continentino.

Scope: SCES ‘08 will cover traditional subjects, such as, f-electron compounds, d-electron systems, heavy fermions, as well as, other strongly correlated electronic materials. New types of superconductivity and other types of physical behavior arising from electronic correlations will also be covered. The conference aims to deepen our understanding of the rich physical phenomena that arise from strong correlations as, quantum phase transitions, non-Fermi liquid phenomena, quantum magnetism, unconventional superconductivity, and metal-insulator transitions. Both experimental and theoretical work will be highlighted. The objective of the conference is not only to provide a forum for presentation and discussion of new results but also to introduce these subjects to young researchers. Presentations will consist of plenary talks (40 min), invited talks (30 min) and contributed talks (15 min). In addition, specially scheduled poster sessions are being planned.
