Welcome to Statphys 23


The Conference

STATPHYS 23, the 23rd International Conference on Statistical Physics of the International Union for Pure and Applied Physics (IUPAP) is to be held in the Conference Center, Genova, Italy, from July 9 to 13, 2007. iupap

The series of Conferences STATPHYS take place every three years in a different continent to give the maximum international relevance and visibility to the event. It is the world event for the broad field of Statistical  Physics and all its interdisciplinary developments.

For example the previous three meetings have been in BANGALORE (India), CANCUN (Mexico), PARIS (France).

Actually the very first meeting was in Florence in 1948. After a pioneering period the periodicity of three years was established and the Conference has acquired more and more importance. The partecipation has reached peaks up to 1500 partecipants in the recent years. Also in Italy we expect this maximum  number or more.

Also on the occasion of this Conference the prestigious Boltzmann medal is awarded. This is the highest international recognition in the field of Statistical Physics. In addition several satellite meetings are usually held along with the main event, adding to the scientific value of the meeting.

After the pioneering Florence meeting there have been 18 more and now the Conference comes back to Italy after a long time.

The entire Italian scientific community will be supporting the meeting with great interest and enthusiasm.

To secure IUPAP sponsorship, the organizers have provided assurance that 23rd International Conference on Statistical Physics of the International Union of Pure and Applied Physics (STATPHYS 23) will be conducted in accordance with IUPAP principles as stated in the ICSU-Document "Universality of Science" (sixth edition, 1989) regarding the free circulation of scientists for international purposes. In particular, no bona fide scientist will be excluded from participation on the grounds of national origin, nationality, or political consideration unrelated to science.
