TOPO 2022  - International Workshop on Topological Structures

September, 13th - 16th, 2022

The physics of topology encompasses many aspects of solid state physics, connecting many of its branches. This is particularly important in interfaces, domains, domain walls, vortices, spin dependent transport and spin torque, spin textures and skyrmions in (multi)ferroics. Topo2022 brings the field of ferroic materials and other fields relevant to topology and dynamics of topology together, aiming to enrich the interactions and push forward new topological physics phenomena.  The topics covered include  topological solitons, topological spin structures, topological textures in antiferromagnets and ferroelectrics, as well as excitations in these systems.

The international Workshop on Topological Structures (TOPO) series of conferences was started in 2015  at the University of New South Wales in Sydney following the rising interest in topology within the ferroelectric community.  In following years, subsequent meetings were organized in Dresden (2016), Leeds (2017), Natal (2018), Prague (2019), and Berkeley (2020) (cancelled).
