Over the past few decades, synthetic quantum systems such as those made from neutral atoms, ions and photons have emerged as an important playground to study quantum many-body physics, quantum statistical physics and quantum information. Importantly, inspired by the unique features of synthetic quantum systems including microscopic readout and a high degree of isolation, new directions and questions have emerged concerning the behavior of isolated and driven quantum many-body systems. In addition, intimate connections between different areas, such as between exotic phases of matter and protection of quantum information, have been discovered. In light of the rapid developments in controlling synthetic systems and the rising interest in quantum science, this workshop will be centered on exploring the frontiers of many-body physics using these systems. The workshop aims to consolidate collaboration and foster new connections between experimentalists and theorists, with a focus on identifying current and upcoming topics of interest, including thermalization and its breakdown, quantum chaos, unconventional hydrodynamics, projective measurements in many-body systems, and exotic phases.
