Scope and topics

Scope of the conference
Recent experimental and theoretical achievements of condensed matter physics have revealed an increasing importance of understanding the physics of very small and low dimensional systems. Issues related to quantum dephasing, thermodynamics and the measurement process have a tremendous impact in new emerging fields of condensed matter physics, e.g., quantum information processing and coherence phenomena in nanoscale and low-dimensional systems. Together with these developments, discussions related to the quantum and mesoscopic thermodynamics have naturally emerged.
The aim of the conference is to bring together leading scientists and junior researchers working on these closely related areas of condensed matter physics and statistical mechanics. Our intent is to discuss hot topics and future directions in these fields, as well as to establish collaborations and connections among seemingly independent communities.
