Scientific Calendar Event

Description An ICTP Hybrid Meeting. You can submit your application for participation in presence or online.

Non-Markovian processes arise in many areas of statistical physics and often pose major theoretical challenges. Bringing together different communities, this conference fosters the exchange of recent advances in the description and understanding of non-Markovian dynamics.

The focal point of this conference is the theoretical study of non-Markovian dynamics appearing in a broad range of physical problems across stochastic dynamics, active matter, and quantum systems. Through presentations, posters, scientific discussions, and informal interactions, the conference promotes dialogue among the communities to explore analogies between different physical theories from the perspective of non-Markovian dynamics, share physical insights, and methodological advances. A special focus are non-Markovian processes far from thermal equilibrium, which is a common frontier in various fields where additional challenges arise. The conference brings together international and interdisciplinary researchers to enhance cross-fertilization between the communities and lay the foundations for research collaborations. The conference further promotes the participation of students from developing countries.
