Intrinsic Magnetic Topological Insulators 2020 (IMTIs2020)

The workshop has been canceled.


It is with deep regret that we are informing you about the cancellation of the IMTIs2020 workshop in San Sebastian (Spain). The decision to cancel has been based on the latest data concerning the rapid propagation of the coronavirus (COVID-19) in Europe and, particularly, in Spain. Currently, the Autonomous Community of the Basque Country, where the city of San Sebastian is located, is the second most affected in Spain with the number of infected persons practically doubling consistently each of the last days. The decision to cancel the workshop is made out of deep concern for the health and well-being of both the workshop participants and San Sebastian community, where each fourth person is older than 65 years, which is the most vulnerable population group.


We apologize for taking this decision that has caused significant inconveniences to many of you as well as the other organizers involved.


Please contact us in case if you need a formal letter of cancellation to present it for your institution, funding or travel agency, etc.


Sincerely yours,

Misha Otrokov and Eugene Chulkov





We are happy to announce the workshop "Intrinsic Magnetic Topological Insulators 2020 (IMTIs2020)", which will take place in Donostia - San Sebastián (Spain), 18-20 May 2020 at the Donostia International Physics Center (DIPC). The workshop is aimed to highlight the advances in the field of MTIs triggered by the recent discovery of the first intrinsic MTI MnBi2Te4. The scope of the workshop covers both the theoretical and experimental studies of the IMTIs crystal, magnetic, and electronic structures as well as transport properties and effects. The materials of interest range from MnBi2Te4, (MnBi2Te4)·(Bi2Te3)m (i.e. MnBi4Te7, MnBi6Te10, MnBi8Te13 etc.), MnBi2-xSbxTe4, MnSb2Te4 and MnBi2Se4 to EuIn2As2, EuSn2As2 and other relevant compounds. The workshop will feature both invited and contributed talks as well as poster presentations. The leading experts working on MnBi2Te4 and related materials will be brought together to share and discuss their latest research endeavors on this exciting topic. We hope that the workshop will inspire the attendees to tackle new problems with great ideas, which will further advance this emergent branch of the topological matter field.
