ULT 2008: Frontiers of Low Temperature Physics

August 13th - 17th 2008 

ULT2008conference Photo


The aim of this conference was to discuss new physics in condensed matter systems at temperatures below 1K, to identify new research directions, and to discuss technical challenges and innovations. The conference was intended to bring together a broad community of workers, spanning the field, to forge links between different experimental communities as well as between experimentalists and theorists.

The conference began with a series of talks given by young researchers in the field, followed by session where the emphasis was on workshops and discussion (with discussion leaders), underpinned by authoritative overviews from leaders in the field.
