The understanding of the rich physics exhibited by strongly correlated quantum systems has seen a rapid development in recent years, driven by a deepened understanding of their underlying entanglement structure. This includes a diverse range of topics: The interplay of symmetries and entanglement which gives rise to diverse symmetry-protected and symmetry-enriched phases, including higher-order symmetries; disorder, thermalization, and many-body localization; new analytical and numerical approached based on tensor networks, using the entanglement structure of those systems; novel developments in integrability; advances in Quantum Monte Carlo and other simulation methods for entangled quantum systems; the use of machine learning in quantum physics; applications of entanglement in quantum gravity; and many more.

The aim of this two-week meeting is to bring together both specialists and newcomers in the field of entanglement in strongly correlated systems, located at the interface of quantum information and condensed matter. The format of the event will consist of both introductory lectures on the above topics and beyond, as well as specialized talks on current developments in the field. In addition, there will be the possibilty for participant to contribute talks, as well as to present posters. During the workshop, spontaneous informal discussions will be encouraged by the organizers and announced throughout the day. Our plan is to have a very rich and collaborative meeting.
