Quantum science approaches to strongly correlated systems: from ultracold atoms to high-energy and condensed matter physics

Gauge fields play a fundamental role in our understanding of complex natural phenomena. Static gauge fields, such as magnetic fields and spin orbit coupling, are responsible for most of the topological effects found in solid state materials, while dynamical gauge fields are the backbone of the standard model in particle physics, and are instrumental in describing quantum magnetism.
In recent years, quantum technologies have emerged as a novel, complementary approach to investigate paradigms of strongly correlated quantum matter related to gauge fields. On the one hand, cold atom systems, owing to their unparalleled degree of control and versatility, represent an ideal experimental platform for the investigation of both static and dynamical gauge fields. From the other hand, novel numerical quantum information tools have been put forward as complementary methods to access regimes where Monte Carlo simulations are affected by the sign problem.
The purpose of this Conference is to bring together researches in the fields of cold atoms, high-energy, and condensed matter physics, to discuss state-of-the-art perspectives and challenges in the field of synthetic gauge fields and related areas. Within this activity, we expect that the growing interdisciplinary field involving the aforementioned fields will be given a strong boost, paving the way toward the realization of quantum simulation platforms for gauge theories and exotic superfluid and insulating states of matter.


The list of topics of the conference includes:

- Spin-orbit-coupled Bose and Fermi gasses,
- Synthetic gauge fields
- Dynamical gauge fields and lattice gauge theories with ultracold atoms
- Matrix-product states and tensor network methods
- Quantum gasses with SU(N) symmetry
- Long-range interactions
- Fermi superfluids
