The forthcoming edition of the Sitges Conference is dedicated to 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.
The Conference Program will include topics such as nonequilibrium statistical mechanics, nonequilibrium quantum phenomena, quantum thermodynamics, protein physics, molecular motors, biological systems, molecular liquids and colloids, forces induced by fluctuations, stochastic and activated processes out of equilibrium, aggregation and self-assembly of structures, active matter, and more. 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.
