The 16th International Workshop on Vortex Matter, to be held in Brazil in 2017, will gather world leading scientists in vortex physics with peers working in correlated subjects. The workshop addresses mainly vortex matter in its several aspects ranging from bulk to mesoscopic superconductivity in new and traditional compounds as well as in superfluidity. The discussion of correlated subjects is welcome as they can bring innovative insights into vortex physics. The expected outcome of the workshop is to achieve understanding in the fundamental aspects of vortex physics by solving present problems that can become useful in the implementation of superconducting technology in operational devices.

 

The International Workshop on Vortex Matter has completed fifteen editions in twenty years, hosted in thirteen different countries.

The International Workshop on Vortex Matter regards vortex physics as an unfolding field of research. Therefore it is committed to include the discussion of the most recent discoveries in superconductivity and superfluidity. Recently superconductivity was discovered in sulfur hydride under pressure, which is far beyond previously believed limits of critical temperature for conventional superconductivity. The record breaking superconductivity in a thin layer of FeSe deposited on a SrTiO3 substrate shows the importance of surface physics, as suggested by Vitaly Ginzburg more than half a century ago. New paradigms are being raised like the onset of transient superconductivity induced by mid-infrared femtosecond pulses in cuprate perovskites. Vortices are also observed in cold gases and in polariton condensates. The International Workshop on Vortex Matter is interested in other topics of condensed matter physics. Surface physics groups and materials scientists are studying another type of topological defect, the so-called skyrmion, a magnetic structure with strong similarities to vortices. Skyrmions have a quantized topological winding number associated to a magnetic flux and form a lattice with remarkable similarities with the Abrikosov vortex lattice in superconductors. Many of the ideas developed for vortex dynamic phases in superconductors with random, ordered, and asymmetric pinning arrays then can be explored in skyrmion systems. Other applications of vortex-related physics are found in the dislocation system of metals, domain walls in magnets, or even in polymer physics.

 

Since 2011, the International Workshop on Vortex Matter awards the Abrikosov prize to physicists who have made distinguished contributions to the field of vortex physics. The Abrikosov prize was awarded in 2013 to Francisco de la Cruz (http://www.vortex2013.org/awards), and in 2015 was jointly awarded to Lev N. Bulaevskii, Alexei E. Koshelev and Masashi Tachiki (http://www.vortex2015.org/?page_id=71 ). Near to the realization of the workshop in 2017 the directors will make a call for suggestions for nominees of the 2017 edition of the Abrikosov prize.

 

We welcome the presence of students and hope to find ways to encourage their participation in the workshop in large numbers, especially those coming from South America, whose costs are lower than those coming from elsewhere.

 

In the 2017 edition, we will follow the drive of previous editions to incorporate new ideas and subjects. We aim at a final program that integrates new topics into the usual discussions of vortex physics, providing a varied set of topics with dedicated sessions to:

 

  • Magnetic skyrmions: Lattices and dynamics
  • Bose-Einstein condensates
  • 2D physics and layered materials
  • Vortices in strongly correlated electron superconductors
  • Thermal and disorder induced transitions

 

Other topics include:

 

  • Vortex pinning and phase diagrams
  • Vortex dynamics
  • Superconducting tapes and wires, fundamentals and applications
  • Vortex imaging in real and reciprocal space
  • Devices for high frequency radiation and detection
  • Irradiation and nanostructuring for vortex pinning
  • Critical currents, critical fields, power application
