We will hold international workshops organized by young members of the project "Topological Quantum Phenomena in Condensed Matter with Broken Symmetries", for communication and personnel exchanges among Japanese and foreign young researchers who in future will play major roles in the research field of topological phenomena in condensed matter physics. The scope of the workshops covers all research topics of the "Topology" project: e.g. spin-triplet superconductivity/superfluidity, topological insulators, novel superconductivity at interfaces, cold atoms, and so on.

This workshop is supported by Grant-in-Aid for Scientific Research on Innovative Areas by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Science, Sports and Technology (MEXT) in Japan and Asia Pacific Center for Theoretical Physics (APCTP) in Korea.
