3rd Eastern Arc Conference on Topological Solitons and Quantum Fluids

The third conference on Topological Solitons, Quantum Fluids and Nonlinear phenomena will take place at the University of Essex, on Tuesday, 02/05/2017. The aim of the conference is to form closer links between the Topological Soliton group at the University of Kent, the Quantum Fluids group at the University of East Anglia and the Applied Mathematics group at the University of Essex. The talks will take place in LTB (Lecture Theatre Building) Room 5 which is building D on the Colchester Campus map.

A detailed schedule can be downloaded here.

Details on the 2nd Eastern Arc Conference on Topological Solitons and Quantum Fluids which took place in May 2016 can be found here, while details on the 1st Eastern Arc Conference on Topological Solitons and Quantum Fluids which took place in June 2015 can be found here.

Organising Committee

Please email Dr Hadi Susanto at or Dr Steffen Krusch at in case you are interested in attending the conference. Women speakers, in particular, are encouraged to present a talk and attend the conference.

Please contact one of the organisors to discuss what we can do to enable participation by people with children or family responsibilities. The London Mathematical Society and the Institute of Physics also make available grants to assist parents and carers to attend meetings.
