The two overarching goals of the Simons Collaboration on Ultra Quantum Matter (UQM) are to develop the theory of highly entangled quantum matter and to work towards physical realization, particularly in synthetic matter systems. The 2022 annual meeting will include a mix of condensed matter, high-energy, quantum information, and atomic physicists. The meeting will cover recent progress in classifying and characterizing topological and fracton matter and in strongly coupled non-Fermi liquid phases. In addition, we will review recent rapid progress in synthetic matter platforms and discuss how to steer these developments toward more robust realizations of highly entangled states. Mirroring the convergence of different communities in recent exciting developments, the meeting will bring together a wide spectrum of theoretical physicists cutting across traditional boundaries, aiming to plant the seeds for further progress.
