Programme

4 thematic sessions and 2 evening discussion sessions with posters.

Thematic session: 30 min overview presentations, 20 min talks
According to the intent of the project, overview presentations are expected to offer a review of the current developments in the field and to suggest topics for further research, development of techniques and collaboration(s), while 20 min talks are expected to present detailed description of selected topics.

Evening session: 5-10 min briefs (results, ideas, suggestions etc.), discussions

Themes:

1) CDW at short length and time scales

2 sessions, 4 overview presentations, 8 focused presentations
Experimental and theoretical investigation of the new phenomena in systems with modulated ground states (particularly CDW) at small scales and short times

2) Thin film preparation and characterization and CDW thin films
2 sessions, 4 overview presentations, 8 focused presentations
Methods and results of the preparation, characterization, modification and applications of thin films of systems with modulated ground states (particularly CDW)

3) Discussion (evening) sessions:
