The International Conference on Novel SuperConductivity in Taiwan 2011
will take place at National Cheng Kung University, Tainan, Taiwan from
August 4-9, 2011.
The Conference is sponsored by the National Science Council, the Academia Sinica, and the National Cheng Kung University. This Conference is one of the satellite meetings of LT26 to be held in Beijing on August 10-17, see the website: http://lt26.iphy.ac.cn/. We also like to thank C5 Commission of IUPAP for their support.
The conference will focus on the state-of-the-art research and development in the four topics related to superconductivity: materials, mechanisms, physical properties and applications. The conference will include keynote presentations, invited papers, as well as contributed oral and poster presentations.
Research on superconductivity has advanced rapidly since the discovery of superconductivity in 1911 by Kamerlingh Onnes. Many dedicated individuals and teams have made important contributions to the advancement of this field. None is more influential in challenging the wisdom of theories and in championing the discovery of new superconductors than B. T. Matthias. There will be a special Symposium on the Centennial Discovery of Superconductivity – in Memory of B. T. Matthias. In this Symposium, experts will be invited to review the current status of superconducting materials like cuprates, heavy fermions, iron-pnictides, and organic superconductors etc..
The ICNSCT2011 continues on the rich and highly productive tradition of previous superconductivity conference to bring together experimental and theoretical scientists from different countries to share their discoveries and insights on physical phenomena of quantum system at superconductivity. The topics to be covered in the conference, include materials, mechanisms, physical properties and applications. Invited and contributed talks, poster presentations and informal discussions are organized into nine broad categories:
- High-temperature Superconductors
- Intermetallic Compounds
- Iron-based Superconductors
- Non-centrosymmetric Superconductors
- P-wave Superconductors
- Topological Superconductors
- Heavy Fermions
- Other Novel Superconductors
*Conference Language: English is the official language of the conference.
