Thanks to intensive research efforts, topology has been established as a fundamental concept in physics. For closed quantum systems, the classification of gapped topological phases has matured. Moreover, the importance of topology is not limited to isolated quantum systems. Recently, the topology of non-Hermitian Hamiltonians, which effectively describe systems with dissipation, has attracted much attention worldwide. This fascination is exemplified by topological phases and topological phenomena unique to non-Hermitian systems.

Against this background, the primary purpose of this workshop is to bring together researchers working on topological phases and to discuss (i) open questions in topological phases of closed quantum systems and (ii) the role of topology in open quantum systems and measurements.
