This workshop "Trends in Theory of Correlated Materials (TTCM2017)" is a continuation of very successful bilateral workshops between Japan and Swiss that has been held on a yearly basis from 2009. It aims at bringing together both communities of condensed matter people (mainly theorists) working on correlated materials and related. The workshop also aims at nurturing scientic exchanges, collaborations, and friendships among young physicists between the two countries

The topics of the workshop include the following (can be extended).

  • Quantum spin systems, multiferroics, and spintronics

  • Topological phases of matter

  • Bulk-edge(boundary) correspondence

  • Dirac and Weyl fermions

  • Cold atoms

  • Quantum entanglement and its applications

  • Many-body localization and out-of-equilibrium correlated matter

  • Computational correlated physics and its methods
