Content : Since the discovery of heavy fermion superconductor CeCu2Si2 in 1979, superconductivity in strongly correlated electron systems has been one of the main topics in condensed matter physics. Until today, many new interesting superconductors have been discovered, which include the high-Tc cuprates, various heavy fermion superconductors, noncentrosymmetric superconductors, cobaltites, and recently discovered iron pnictides.

The topics of the workshop will cover various aspects of recent developments in theory of superconductivity. Some emphasis will be placed on the effects of closeness to quantum criticality, effects of anharmonic phonons, and superconducting properties near Mott insulating phases.

The workshop consists of two parts. In the first period from June 22 to July 7, one or two lectures are scheduled every day and discussions and exchange of ideas among participants are a part of essential activities of the workshop. The last three days (July 8-10) are organized as a symposium.
Remarks : The symposium will be held in A632.
