XXVII Sitges Conference on Statistical Mechanics:
Nonequilibrium Phenomena: from Quantum to Macroscopic Scales
Sitges, Spain, 29 May - 2 June, 2023

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)
Ralf Metzler (University of Potsdam)
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.

We are also pleased to announce the Best Poster Award of the Sitges Conference. The award is sponsored by MDPI's open access journal Entropy and consists of a monetary prize of CHF 300 and a certificate.
