International Workshop on j-fermion Physics and Materials

The aim of the workshop is to discuss the recent progress in quantum materials with the emphasis on multipoles and topology. In such materials, j-fermions emerge due to strong spin-orbit coupling, and novel phenomena, such as superconducting pairing between j = 3/2 fermions, can occur. This workshop will bring together scientist exploring the novel phenomena in new materials to share the latest idea and to fertilize new research directions. The main topics are exotic superconductivity, novel multipolar ordering, quantum spin liquid, emergent j-fermions, and related phenomena, but broad experimental and theoretical presentations related to quantum materials are also welcomed. The workshop consists of invited and contributed talks.
