This reunion workshop is for long-term participants in the program "Quantum Hamiltonian Complexity" held in the Spring 2014 semester. It will provide an opportunity to meet old and new friends. Moreover, we hope that it will give everyone a chance to reflect on the progress made during the semester and since, and sketch which directions the field should go in in the future.

Support is gratefully acknowledged from:


Participation in the workshop is by invitation only.
