Content : In recent years, the interplay of topological aspects and strong correlation in electron systems has been attracting greater attention and interest. For example, exotic phases and properties have been recently found as a result of the coupling between spin textures and itinerant electrons. Moreover, thanks to their topological nature, these features are robust against perturbations, and their novel functionalities have great promise for various applications.

This Workshop is organized to facilitate discussion and collaboration among theorists working on this exciting subject. A related International Symposium "Topological Phases and Functionality of Correlated Electron Systems" is held for Feb 20 -- 22 during this Workshop.
