and related materials
An annual series of workshops starting in 1990
Over the past 30 years this workshop has evolved into one of the world's leading forums on the physics of ferroelectricity and related phenomenon, where the best researchers from around the world gather to share and debate cutting edge developments in the field of ferroelectrics and related materials, both experimental and theoretical. This workshop series has played a significant role in fostering multi-institutional collaborations on research devoted to understanding the fundamental physics of these complex and versatile materials.
Feb 1- 3, 2021
A workshop that brings together an international and interdisciplinary team of theorists and experimentalists
The 2021 "Fundamental Physics of Ferroelectrics Workshop,” is the 32nd in the series of workshops that has gathered the world’s leading theorists and experimentalists working in the field of ferroelectrics and related materials every year since 1990. This year we meet virtually on the CadmiumCD platform.
Due to the different time zones of participants, we will run the meeting as follows:
Contributed and invited talks and posters will be uploaded before the meeting, divided into sessions, and available on demand. Live streaming Q&A sessions will allow questions. For invited talks these will be individual Q&A sessions and for contributed talks and posters they will be Q&A sessions for the presentations in that session.
Plenary Talks will be given live and followed by a live Q&A session.
Sponsors will be advertised on the site with links to their presentation materials.
More details to follow.
