The National High Magnetic Field lab will hold its 8th Theory Winter School in Tallahassee, Florida on 6-10 January, 2020. This year's School will focus on "Quantum Matter Without Quasiparticles", a subject inspired by recent developments in condensed matter physics and beyond. These development shed new light on open questions of quantum criticality, unconventional superconductivity, and new types of topological phases of matter. The tentative topics of the school include electron transport without quasiparticles, Sachdev-Ye-Kitaev models, novel phases in twisted bilayer graphene, fracton topological phases, deconfined quantum criticality, and many-body localization.

All lectures, as well as lunch and dinner will be taking place at the MagLab headquarters in Tallahassee, Florida.
The only facility of its kind in the United States, the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory (less formally known as the Magnet Lab) is the largest and highest-powered magnet laboratory in the world, headquartered in a sprawling 370,000-square-foot complex near Florida State University in Tallahassee. The lab also includes sites at the Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico and the University of Florida in Gainesville. Together these three institutions operate the lab, collaborating in a unique, interdisciplinary way to advance basic science, engineering and technology in the 21st century.
The Magnet Lab.
Established by the National Science Foundation in 1990, the lab is a national resource open to both curious visitors and world-renowned scientists. Centralizing the country's greatest magnet-related tools, resources and expertise is not only efficient and cost-effective, but also encourages fruitful, collaborative research at the highest level. Every year, more than 900 visiting scientists and engineers from across the world conduct experiments using our state-of-the-art equipment. Our magnets are far larger, far more powerful and far more complex than the everyday magnets most people are familiar with. Many were designed, developed and built by our magnet engineering and design team, widely recognized as the finest in the world.
