The 12th International Conference on Spontaneous Coherence in Excitonic systems (ICSCE-12) will be held in Dublin, Ireland, on June 10th-14th, 2024. The conference will be held in Trinity College located in the heart of Dublin. The 12th instalment of this conference continues the tradition of bringing together researchers studying quantum collective phenomena in various kinds of electronic excitations in solids and related phenomena in other physical systems.

This conference is being held 20 years after the first ICSCE conference, held in the Seven Springs, Pennsylvania, a period which has seen tremendous progress in the area of quantum condensation in solid-state systems. We aim to reflect this history in the program, while also covering hot topics in the field, and looking to the next 20 years of condensate physics.

Taking a broad interpretation of spontaneous coherence, the conference topics will include:

  • Fundamental physics of condensates, including exciton-polariton condensates, photon condensates, and lasers.
  • Nonlinear dynamics and thermodynamics of condensates, including topological effects, superfluidity, and non-equilibrium universality.
  • Excitons and exciton-polaritons in new materials systems (TMDCs, Perovskites, etc).
  • Condensates in metastructures and lattices.
  • Organic excitons and exciton-polaritons
  • Applications of condensates including optical computing.
  • Exciton condensates and insulators
  • Condensation and coherence in complementary systems, including atoms, lattices, and quantum simulation.

Looking forward to seeing you in Dublin.
