IOP–HU Early Career Researcher Conference on Condensed Matter Physics

Dates: October 13-14, 2023

Venue: Yangtze River Delta Physics Research Center, Liyang, Jiangsu Province, China

Conference Website:


The IOP–HU Early Career Researcher Conference on Condensed Matter Physics is co-organized by IOP CAS (Institute of Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences) and HU Berlin (Humboldt-Universit?t zu Berlin). The aim of the conference is to provide early career researchers with a stimulating environment to discuss current research, interact with domestic and international condensed matter physicists, and pursue further research in China and Germany, aided with available postdoctoral funding opportunities such as the IOP-Humboldt Postdoctoral Fellowship in Physics, the IOP International Young Scientist Fellowship and the CAS President's International Fellowship Initiative. The areas of topics can be surrounding condensed matter physics, optical physics, atomic and molecular physics, plasma physics, soft matter physics, condensed matter theory and computation physics, and other related fields. Ten travel awards will cover travel and accommodation expenses for early career researchers. There will also be an optional visit to IOP Beijing campus on October 15th. Please find attached the poster for the conference.

Day 1: Early career researcher conference

On October 13th, junior postdoctoral candidates, senior PhD candidates and students are welcome to present talks and posters, and learn about opportunities pursuing postdoctoral fellowships at IOP CAS and partner institutes. Each session will be followed by stimulating discussions with principal investigators (PI) at IOP CAS, the Humboldt-University of Berlin (HU Berlin), and other universities and research institutions, both in China and Germany. 

Day 2: PI program and discussions with early career researchers

This year on October 14th, the program will feature stimulating talks from distinguished guests on the topics of:

  • Theory and simulation
  • Electron microscopy
  • Surface spectroscopy
  • Quantum information
