iTHEMS Science Outreach Workshop 2021

July 11 - 12, 2021

RIKEN iTHEMS, an interdisciplinary Theoretical and Mathematical Sciences Program (RIKEN iTHEMS), was established in November 2016. RIKEN iTHEMS aims to use interdisciplinary methods with a focus on mathematics to elucidate the universe, matter and life, and to solve fundamental problems in society. Building on the achievements of the past exchanges through the Journalist in Residence Program, we will hold an outreach workshop to explore the relevance of the research of the RIKEN iTHEMS to society and to discuss how to build interactive relationships between journalists and researchers in the future. Like last year, this year's workshop will be held as a ZOOM workshop as the seminar house is closed. Contact: Takashi Tsuboi (iTHEMS Deputy Director)

Dr. Kyosuke Adachi (Special Postdoctoral Researcher, iTHEMS / Special Postdoctoral Researcher, Nonequilibrium Physics of Living Matter RIKEN Hakubi Research Team, RIKEN Center for Biosystems Dynamics Research)
Prof. Christopher Bourne (Visiting Scientist (Academia), iTHEMS / Assistant Professor, Advanced Institute for Materials Research (AIMR), Tohoku University)

The second Tohoku University - RIKEN joint workshop, entitled "Math Meets Quantum Materials," takes place from September 29 - 30. Tohoku University and RIKEN have been holding a series of joint workshops based on the agreement on collaboration and cooperation signed in 2019. The second workshop focuses on collaboration in the fields of mathematical sciences and quantum materials; two fields that have significantly merged in recent years. Like topological materials, which are discovered using the mathematical concept of topology, materials science is currently evolving from the conventional way of finding materials. Instead of developing materials with good properties through numerous experiments, materials science is increasingly finding materials using mathematical predictions. This workshop will discuss these latests developments and related topics. Although some lectures will take place in Japanese, the majority of talks will be in English. The deadline for registration is Monday, September 28. For more information, please click on the relevant link.
