- Statphys 27 -

8th-12th July, 2019

We are very pleased to announce that the 27th International Conference on Statistical Physics, StatPhys 27, of the International Union of Pure and Applied Physics (IUPAP) will take place in Buenos Aires, Argentina, from July 8th through 12th, 2019, following previous editions in: Lyon (2016), Seoul (2013), Cairns (2010), Genova (2007), Bangalore (2004), Cancun (2001), Paris (1998), Xiamen (1995), Berlin (1992), and Rio de Janeiro (1989). The conference will cover a wide range of topics including traditional aspects of statistical mechanics, such as applications to hard and soft condensed matter, phase transitions, disordered systems and non-equilibrium physics, as well as emergent developments such as quantum information and quantum and stochastic thermodynamics, and modern applications in Big Data, networks, signal processing, turbulence, complex systems, mathematics and interdisciplinary and biological physics.

StatPhys27 will be conducted in accordance with IUPAP principles as stated in the IUPAP resolution passed by the General Assembly in 2008 and 2011. In particular, no bona fide scientist will be excluded from participation on the grounds of national origin, nationality, or political considerations unrelated to science. It is the policy of the IUPAP that all participants in Union activities will enjoy an environment which encourages the free expression and exchange of scientific ideas, and is free from all forms of discrimination, harassment, and retaliation. The conference will have an advisor who will consult with those who have suffered from harassment and who will suggest ways of redressing their problems, and an advisor who will counsel those accused of harassment. The conference organizers may, after due consideration, take such action they deem appropriate, including warning or expulsion from the conference without refund.
