Workshop Goals and Scientific Program
Since the discovery of supersolidity in helium in 2004, many
groups have focused on understanding this paradoxical state of matter.
Despite the intense efforts of theorists and experimentalists around
world, many open questions remain, for example the microscopic
supersolidity, the role of crystal defects and disorder, and whether
superflow is possible.
The interplay between theory and experiment has been
understanding solid helium and has been greatly enhanced through a
of timely workshops devoted to supersolidity. Supersolidity 2010
follow the tradition of these earlier meetings.
It will bring together
theorists and experimentalists actively working in this exciting field,
discuss new ideas and recent results in an informal setting. The
will include ample time for informal discussion. Invited talks will be
about 45 minutes long and include time for questions. Some support will
be provided for young participants (graduate students and postdocs). We
will also have a
poster session where all participants are encouraged to present their
most recent research results.
workshop was a great success with many important original results and
The next one will be organized by A. Kuklov and H. Kojima in New York
city, in June 2011.
This workshop is linked to the conference Quantum Fluids and Solids
(Grenoble, Aug. 1 - 7 , 2010).
