New TRENDS in Correlated OXIDES and Interfaces
(12-18 November 2015, Brescia)

TRENDOXIDES2015 aims to bring together PhD students, researchers and scientists with diverse expertise in the field of correlated oxides, in which the electronic interactions lead to novel and complex properties of great relevance for the fundamental understanding and the technological applications.

The topics covered will include the new trends in material growth and engineering, artificial lattices and interfaces, fundamental theory, state-of-the-art spectroscopies, ultrafast dynamics and out-of-equilibrium properties, devices and energy applications.

TRENDOXIDES 2015 is organized as a School and Workshop:

School: 12-14 November 2015

The School is intended to provide post-graduates  and PhD students with the basic knowledge needed to enter the field of complex oxides and to proficiently participate to the following Workshop.

The 3-days School is structured in specific lectures covering the fundamental theory, state-of-the-art spectroscopic techniques and fundamental properties of bulk and artificial materials. The students will be asked to present their ongoing research projects via posters and flash presentations. The atmosphere will be informal, trying to facilitate the interactions among the students and with the lecturers.

The participation to the School automatically includes the participation to the Workshop (16-18 November). Sunday 15th of November will be left as a free day for visiting Brescia and its surroundings.

For the first 20 selected students the participation will be free and we will cover the accomodation at the guesthouse (up to 7 nights), the coffee breaks and lunches. Otherwise the participation fee amounts to 120 €, which includes 6 lunches and all the coffee breaks during the School/Workshop.


Workshop: 16-18 November 2015

The workshop will bring together some of the most distinguished international scientists in the field of correlated oxides. The topics covered will range from material for technological applications to equilibrium properties and non-equilibrium dynamics.

The workshop is open to PhD students, post-doctoral researchers and junior and senior scientists. The interactions among the scientists and the students will be facilitated in order to create a stimulating atmosphere and boosting possible collaborations.
