January 5, 2018: Symposium on the physics of Majorana bound states


Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to announce that the International Research Centre MagTop is organizing together with the Institute of Physics, Polish Academy of Sciences in Warsaw on 05.01.2018 one-day- long informal “Symposium on the physics of Majorana bound states”. Hereby, we would like to kindly invite you to participate in this event whose aim is to bring together scientists from different research centers in Poland to give an opportunity for informal discussions on this actual and important topic on the crossroads of topological properties of matter and superconductivity. The beginning of the Symposium is planned at 9 a.m. and its ending before 5 p.m. the same day. For the participants from outside Warsaw, we can arrange reservation of the accommodation night before (4/5.01.2018) in the guest house of the Institute of Physics, PAS. We kindly ask you to provide us information whether you and/or your co-workers wish to participate and whether actively (with a presentation) or not (without presentation) by the 18.12.2017. Please direct all e-mail correspondence concerning Symposium to:

In order to keep our informal Symposium in the spirit of discussion we offer speakers 20 minutes for the presentation and 10 minutes for questions (30 minutes in total). The introductory lecture on the Majorana physics by prof. Tadeusz Domański is the only exception and it is intended for 45 minutes plus 15 minutes for questions.

We would like to stress that the Symposium is open and all your coworkers and colleagues are welcome to take part in our event!

We are looking forward to seeing you at the Symposium!

Dr. Marcin M. Wysokiński

On behalf of organizers of Symposium:
Prof. Tomasz Dietl
Prof. Andrzej Wiśniewski
