The ICAM-China 2021 Spring Symposium “Novel Correlated Electronic Matters” was held at the Tsung-Dao Lee Institute (TDLI) of Shanghai Jiao Tong University (SJTU) from April 23 to 25, 2021. The sponsors include the Institute of Physics (IOP) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), the Kavli Institute for Theoretical Sciences (KITS), and TDLI. Prof. Zhang Fuchun of KITS, Prof. Hu Jiangping of IOP and Prof. Ku Wei of TDLI co-chaired this symposium.

More than 50 experts from research institutes and universities in China and abroad participated in the symposium, which focused on three main topics, including Kagome Lattice, Ni-based Superconductor, and Twistronics. Twenty-one young experts, such as Prof. Stephen Wilson from UC Santa Barbara, Prof. Li Danfeng from City University of Hong Kong, and Prof. Li Shiyan from Fudan University, gave excellent presentations on their latest research progress and results. The participating scholars also had lively and in-depth discussions. Afterward, representatives of ICAM-China member institutions held a board meeting. They approved the membership applications of Wuhan University and Sichuan University, and discussed the future organization mode of ICAM-China’s academic activities and academic exchanges of PhD students. They reached a consensus on a series of key issues such as further promoting and implementing ICAM-China’s international academic exchanges and educational activities in China, and building a platform for exchanges of postdoctoral researchers in China.

The symposium was broadcast live through the Conference Platform of IOP Academic Services Department. The online attendance reached more than 3,500 person-time.
