Systems of correlated fermions are ubiquitous in nature, ranging from electrons in metals and other materials to neutron stars. Examples of current interest, such as the cuprate and pnictide superconductors, quantum dots and other nanostructures, and ultracold gases of fermionic atoms, exhibit a wealth of phenomena that are important both for fundamental science and for technology, but only incompletely understood. Over the recent years, the functional renormalization group has contributed significantly to progress in this area of research.

As the concluding event of the DFG collaborative research group Functional Renormalization for Correlated Fermion Systems (FOR 723), this conference focuses on theoretical advances in the analysis of correlated fermion systems. A particular aim of the conference is to bring together researchers using a variety of theoretical methods, in order to discuss and potentially combine different approaches to unconventional superconductivity, magnetism, and more exotic phases of matter, as well as transport and nonequilibrium phenomena.
