To follow up on talks, please see links of recordings in the schedule page. You can find some reflections on the conference in this post.

Remit and Audience:

Condensed Matter Physics in the City 2024 (CMPCity 2024) is scheduled to take place in central London premises on June 3-7 2024 under the heading “Bridging Theory, Experiment and Computational Innovation in Quantum Materials”, to foster the dialogue on new cross-disciplinary synergies between theory, experiment and computational approaches to quantum matter. The meeting will expose many extraordinary recent experimental discoveries, such as the fractional quantum Hall effect in the absence of a field in twisted bilayer MoTe2, novel families of flat band materials and new kinds of superconductivity.

This CMPCity series is organised annually by the Hubbard Theory Consortium (formed by Imperial College London, University College London, the University of Kent and Royal Holloway University of London).

Join the discussion on twitter under our conference hashtag #cmpcity2024.


Monday 3 June – Friday 7 June 2024.


Registration for the meeting is now open. You can find detailed information on the registration page.


The final schedule is now available.

The 2024 edition of the meeting will take place in person, with an option for hybrid attendance for online participation, to foster the meeting’s aim of providing ample opportunities for in person discussions. In keeping with the meeting’s tradition, all talks are scheduled with generous time for discussion, and active participation by all attendees is strongly encouraged.

In addition to the scientific program, we will organise a public evening lecture on Wednesday 5th June 2024, which will be delivered by Prof. Ali Yazdani from Princeton – for further details see the eventbrite entry.

Details on the running of the meeting are to be confirmed in due course and will be communicated directly to registered participants nearer the meeting dates.

History of the meeting:

Condensed Matter Physics in the City is run by the Hubbard Theory Consortium, as one of its flagship activities since its foundation in 2010.

The Hubbard Theory Consortium brings together condensed matter groups throughout southeast England, including the groups at Royal Holloway University of London (RHUL), the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory (RAL) in Harwell (including the ISIS Facilities and the Diamond Light Source), the London Centre for Nanotechnology (LCN) at University College London, the University of Kent, and Imperial College London.
