The National High Magnetic Field Laboratory hosts the Theory Winter School in January every year.

  • Overview

    The National MagLab hosted its fifth Theory Winter School in Tallahassee, Florida in January 2017, with a focus on modeling of correlated electron materials. You can view the 2017 talks from the event on YouTube, and other details are below.

    The next Theory Winter School will take place in January 2018. Check this page closer to that date for details of the event.

    To view presentations from previous years, please use the “Theory Winter School Archives” box on this page.
