Quantum condensed matter theory moves fast. There are many developments around the world that occur on a daily basis and it is getting harder for a researcher to keep track of these at an individual level. Thus a collective effort is needed to survive this daily rigour. Given this, there has been a long-felt need for a journal club where interested people get together and discuss a paper.

The quantum condensed matter journal club (QCMJC) was launched with this objective in mind at the Department of Physics, Indian Institute of Science in April, 2012. The journal club plans to meet fortnightly to discuss a paper of recent interests -- the discussion being lead by one of the group members via a presentation. This way we hope to keep abreast of interesting developments in our field and explore possibilities of collaborative projects in frontier areas of condensed matter physics.
