About the 18th Online International Vortex Conference 2021 (Vortex 2021)
The 18th International Online Workshop (Vortex-2021-online) on Vortex Matter in Superconductors, is to be held online from May 27th to June 4th, 2021. This is a prestigious international event, by invitation only. This conference continues the tradition of International Conference on Vortex Matter in Superconductors, which began in 1994, Palaiseau France. The purpose of the Conference is to promote international collaboration and exchange of ideas in the fascinating field of physics of vortices in superconductors.
While originally the Vortex 2021 conference was planned to be held as a physical conference in New Delhi, India ,however as a fall out of the devastating pandemic, the international scientific committee decided to hold the conference as a fully online Vortex2021 conference. This online conference will be jointly held by Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur (IIT Kanpur), Kanpur, Uttar Pradesh and Tata Institute of Fundamental Research (TIFR), Mumbai. The Vortex 2021 conference will commemorate the, Diamond Jubilee (60 years) of Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur (IITK), Kanpur and 75 years of Tata Institute of Fundamental Research (TIFR), Mumbai. The conference topics while combining traditional areas of research in vortex physics will also include linkages with frontline research area which include overlapping topics in contemporary condensed matter physics like, superconductors with topological insulators, 2D quantum materials, nanomaterials, devices.
