Welcome message:

Welcome to Localisation 2011, a satellite meeting of the 26th International Conference on Low Temperature Physics (LT26).

The International Conference Localisation 2011 is the eighth of the series started in Braunschweig in 1984 and since then held in Tokyo, London, Eugene, Jasowiecz, Hamburg and Tokyo again and was held as satellite of the LT conferences. The purpose of the conference is to provide a forum for discussion of the latest progress on a broad range of topics related to experiments on and theory of localisation phenomena.

The main topics discussed in the conference include:

  • Quantum transport in disordered systems (Anderson localisation, effects of interactions on localisation, Anderson-Mott transition, mesoscopics)
  • Superconductor-insulator transition
  • Quantum Hall effects (fractional and integer)
  • Topological insulator
  • Graphene
  • Dynamical localisation
  • Heavy fermions (Kondo effect, Kondo lattice, effects of disorder)
  • Many body localisation (spin-glass, Coulomb glass)

There will be 30 invited talks (30 minutes), 15 contributed talks (20 minutes) and a poster presentation session (2 minute presentations for each poster). All posters will be presented throughout the conference in the lobby. There will be conference proceedings published (by World Scientific).

About Sponsors:

The conference is hosted by the Asia Pacific Center for Theoretical Physics (APCTP). It is supported by the POSTECH Division of Advanced Materials Science (AMS). POSTECH launched the Division of AMS in March 2009, funded by the Korea Ministry of Education, Science and Technology of Korea as a World Class University Program. The APCTP is an international research center supported by many countries around Asia-Pacific area and the current president is Prof. Peter Fulde from Germany.
