A multitude of unusual electronic phenomena have emerged in recent years. These phenomena typically occur in oxides and higher chalcogenides and represent the hottest topics in solid-state research today. They comprise of strong electron correlation, multiferroicity, spintronic effects, topologically protected electron states, as well as unexpected effects at complex heterointerfaces. And they include superionic conduction and artificial photosynthesis, as well as resistive switching and memristive phenomena, based on nanoscale phase change and redox processes. This conference will bring together leaders in these interdisciplinary fields to discuss breakthroughs and challenges in fundamental research as well as prospects for future applications.
