Announcement and Call for contributions to the
XXVII Sitges Conference on Statistical Mechanics:
Nonequilibrium Phenomena: from Quantum to Macroscopic Scales
Sitges, Spain, 29 May - 2 June, 2023;!!D9dNQwwGXtA!Q7AKPSDn4cJTrP-e7Y4bg8tfgnHEO9nEIGcdUDOfXa_PCbO1wPyKijw1-WQUPNWSQVXh57rrSOUYdMf35a138ZUqabA$ 

Dear Colleague,

This is the announcement and call for contributions to the "XXVII Sitges
Conference on Statistical Mechanics", that will take place in Sitges, a
charming seaside resort near Barcelona, Spain, from the 29th of May until
the 2nd of June 2023.

The title of the forthcoming edition of the Sitges Conference will be
"Nonequilibrium Phenomena: from Quantum to Macroscopic Scales”. In this
meeting we aim to stimulate discussion on out-of-equilibrium systems at
different scales, encouraging a multidisciplinary vision within the
framework of statistical mechanics. With the participation of leading
researchers working on cutting-edge topics, we will focus on new methods
for the description of nonequilibrium effects in diverse situations of
relevance for the community.

With the organization of this Conference, we will provide a unique
opportunity to exchange points of view, to promote contacts and new
collaborations, and to create a forum for debate that can help us to give
answers to the many open questions in this vast domain of current research.

We are pleased to announce the following list of Confirmed Plenary Speakers:

Janet Anders (University of Exeter)
Eli Barkai (Bar-Ilan University)
Clemens Bechinger (Universität Konstanz)
Pierre Gaspard (Université libre de Bruxelles)
Peter Hänggi (Universität Augsburg)
Christopher Jarzynski (University of Maryland)
Jukka Pekola (Aalto University)
Julia Yeomans (University of Oxford)

The list of plenary and invited contributors will be periodically updated
in the conference web-page:;!!D9dNQwwGXtA!Q7AKPSDn4cJTrP-e7Y4bg8tfgnHEO9nEIGcdUDOfXa_PCbO1wPyKijw1-WQUPNWSQVXh57rrSOUYdMf35a138ZUqabA$ .
