Understanding and exploiting the robustness of topological metals and insulators and their unique quantum mechanical properties is a thriving avenue to develop new quantum technologies. Gapless topological phases in particular have been shown to host exotic phenomena, and repeatedly enabled to discover a rich set of possibilities beyond those predicted in high-energy physics. This conference aims to bring together leading experts, postdocs and students in theoretical and experimental condensed matter physics, with a strong focus on gapless topological phases, material science and high energy physics to explore these exotic phenomena, and the increasing list of candidate materials for their realization. We will accept submissions from a representative number of topics to portray a global picture of recent developments including materials such as topological semimetals and new magnetic topological matter and their classification, as well as novel phenomenology such as correlation effects, superconductivity, anomalies and transport phenomena, non-linear transport and optical responses or topological catalysis.

The conference language will be English. The Wilhelm and Else Heraeus-Foundation bears the cost of full-board accommodation for all participants.
