Fluctuations and Highly Non Linear Phenomena in
Superfluids and Superconductors



San Benedetto del Tronto (Italy)

Campus of the University of Camerino in San Benedetto del Tronto

September 5–7, 2018


Venue: University of Camerino,  Campus of the University of Camerino - URDIS,

Lungomare Scipioni, 6

63074 San Benedetto del Tronto (AP) - Italy

Jointly organized by: University of Camerino and University of Padova, Italy


This international conference provides an excellent forum for presenting and discussing recent developments and novel ideas in diverse fields of superconductivity and superfluidity, in the beautiful seaside town of San Benedetto del Tronto, in the south of Le Marche region of Italy. During the conference we will discuss opportunities to establish large collaboration efforts or empowering existing ones, as well as to plan joint participation to international projects. Young participants will be able to look and discuss opportunities for doctoral or post doc positions. Cross-fertilization and merging of capacities and methods will be encouraged in a very interactive atmosphere.

Main Topics:

-Fluctuations and BCS-BEC crossover phenomena in low dimensional systems.

-Hybrid systems, superconductivity at the interfaces, and coexistence of phases.

-Highly nonlinear phenomena: Josephson and Andreev effects, topological defects, skyrmions and solitons, vortex states.

-Novel phenomena in multicomponent / multigap superconductors and superfluids.

-Innovative numerical methods
