Topics and Format

LEES 08, co-organized by the University of British Columbia and Simon Fraser University, will be a forum for the interdisciplinary discussion of the low-energy electrodynamics of solids, at both the theoretical and experimental level, with specific emphasis on the electronic and magnetic properties of quantum materials.

Oral presentations of 30 minutes (25 + 5 min. of questions) are planned for daytime sessions and symposia. Ample time will be dedicated to  discussion, to facilitate exchange of ideas and cross-fertilization. Poster (48x48 inch) presentations will be held in the afternoons/evenings and will be on display from Monday to Thursday. There will be no parallel sessions and attendance is limited to approximately 100 participants. Students are encouraged to participate.
