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 strong electron correlation, multiferroicity, spintronic effects, topological insulation, superionic conduction, unexpected interface effects at complex heterointerfaces, 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.
