2022 Swiss Workshop on Materials with Novel Electronic Properties

Basic research and applications

Les Diablerets

Switzerland
Aug. 29th – 31st, 2022
The 2022 Swiss Workshop on Materials with Novel Electronic Properties is the thirteenth edition of a series of Swiss Workshops organized by MaNEP, formerly the Swiss National Centre of Competence in Research (NCCR) on Materials with Novel Electronic Properties and now a Network at the Swiss level.

The meeting will bring together researchers working in Switzerland in the field of Materials with Novel Electronic Properties. The workshop is to act as a forum promoting research and applications in this area.

SWM 2022 will include the following topics:

  • Superconductivity
  • Oxide interfaces
  • Quantum magnetism
  • Topological phases of matter
  • 2D materials
  • Nanomagnetism
  • Out of equilibrium physics
  • Applications
The workshop is open to all scientists, engineers and students interested in these fields and gathers MaNEP Network members. It provides an outstanding scientific forum to share the last developments and offers networking opportunities.

COVID: The conference will follow the sanitary recommendations of the Swiss confederation. The participants must follow these rules during the conference.
