About the workshop

Time crystals are quantum systems which are able to reveal condensed matter behavior but in the time domain. Research on time crystals, initiated by Frank Wilczek in 2012, is developing rapidly. There are different concepts of time crystals and there are many interesting open problems related to time crystals and to periodically driven systems in general. The aim of the workshop on Time Crystals and Related Phenomena is to bring together experts and young researchers working on time crystals and periodically driven systems and to exchange knowledge and experience.

The workshop will be held at the Jagiellonian University in Kraków, 4-6 September 2019 in the XVII century historical Collegium Medicum building located in the city center of Kraków. It will also be a satellite meeting of the BEC 2019 conference that will take place in Sant Feliu, Spain,  8-12 September 2019.

The number of participants is limited to 60.
