Dear friends,

The XXIV National Conference on Statistical Physics and Complex Systems will be held from June 24th to June 26th 2019 at the Conference Center - Aule delle Scienze Building in the University Campus of Parma.

The Conference will be dedicated to the main topics of interest in Statistical Physics:

  • Equilibrium and non-equilibrium statistical physics
  • Disordered systems and complex systems
  • Phase transitions and statistical physics of quantum systems
  • Statistical physics of soft, active and biological matter
  • Machine Learning: theory and applications to Data Science
  • Statistical physics of Networks
  • Interdisciplinary applications of statistical physics.

  • On June 25th, during the afternoon session, the first Assembly of Members of the Italian Society of Statistical Physics - SIFS will take place. All the necessary information to register, attend the Assembly and elect the new Executive Committee can be found on the SIFS official website.

    There is no registration fee, but for organization purposes we kindly ask you to send as soon as possible an e-mail to stat@fis.unipr.it with the registration form, shown on this conference website.

    The conference will take place in the Conference center in the "Aule delle Scienze" Building (Pad. 25, also called "Plesso o Polo Q02"), number   23    in the figure on the right. The Building "Aule delle Scienze" is the first structure that can be seen when you are entering the University Campus from Viale G.P. Usberti, immediately after the main gate.

    The Physics Building   16   of the Department of Mathematical, Physical and Computer Sciences is next to "Aule delle Scienze", behind the second BUS stop inside the Campus.

    How to get there
