Q-PHORIA is an annual conference founded by the 4 organizers in 2023. The motivation of the Q-PHORIA conferences is to bring condensed matter physicists from the Ohio and Pennsylvania region together, to enhance existing collaborations and to initiate new collaborations in quantum condensed matter physics. We hope to attract interested faculty, students and postdocs from the neighboring institutions in the region to this conference, and to provide an in-person platform for researchers from the region to learn cutting-edge science and to interact with each other. The 2024 conference is the 2nd one of the annual series, following the 1st conference in University of Pittsburgh on Oct. 5-6, 2023

As a central topic of modern condensed matter physics, quantum magnetism provides a prime example of how strong correlations can lead to new emergent quantum phenomena beyond the band theory of weakly interacting electrons. One such phenomenon is quantum spin liquid, where fractionalized collective excitations emerge in correlated magnetic materials due to quantum many-body entanglement therein. In recent years, the breakthrough in two-dimensional (2D) materials also leads to new progress in 2D magnetism. Motivated by the exciting progress, the topic of the 2024 Q-PHORIA conference is “Quantum Phenomena in Magnetic Materials”. 

This 2-day conference will take place at the Physics Department of The Ohio State University, during Oct. 3-4, 2024. It will start with lunch at 11am on Thursday (Oct. 3) and ends at 3pm on Friday (Oct. 4). The conference will cover two lunches on both Thursday and Friday, Friday breakfast, and coffee breaks for all participants.

The 2024 Q-PHORIA conference consists of 15 invited talks and a poster session. The length of each invited talk is 20 minutes, followed by 10 minutes’ Q&A by the audience. The poster session is scheduled to be on Thursday afternoon, and we invite each poster presenter to submit a 1-slide summary for the poster.
