The International Institute of Physics in the city of Natal, northeast Brazil, hosts the 
16th International Workshop on Vortex Matter in Superconductors. The workshop scientific program starts on Monday (May 29th) and ends on Friday (June 2nd). A welcome reception will occur on Sunday (May 28th).

The 16th International Workshop on Vortex Matter in Superconductors (VORTEX2017) addresses theoretical and experimental aspects of vortex matter found in the new and in the traditional compounds, in all scales, ranging  from bulk to reduced dimensionality. The workshop objectives are to achieve understanding in the fundamental and applied aspects of vortex physics and to promote international collaboration and exchange of ideas among the participants. The topics comprised by VORTEX2017 are the  traditional ones covered in previous workshops of the series, started in 1994, plus a number of new correlated themes found in superconductivity, superfluidity and magnetism, such as the onset of novel topological states.

Students and junior researchers are encouraged to apply to VORTEX2017 and join the leading invited scientists to discuss the latest frontier research in vortex physics and correlated themes.
