One-year postponement of Statphys28

Given the current situation of the COVID-19 pandemic, the steering committee and the local organizing committee of Statphys28 have decided to postpone the conference by one year. It will be held from August 7 to 11, 2023, at the Hongo campus of the University of Tokyo, possibly as a hybrid conference.

The conference won’t be postponed any further. In case the pandemic does not allow an on- site or hybrid conference, Statphys28 will be held as a completely online conference in 2023.

All the plenary and invited speakers of Statphys28 in 2022 are invited as the plenary and invited speakers, respectively, of Statphys28 in 2023. Furthermore, the call for abstracts will be delayed by one year.

Welcome Message

We are very pleased to announce that the 28th IUPAP International conference on Statistical Physics, Statphys 28 will take place in Tokyo from August, 7th to 11th in 2023 after a one-year postponement. The community of research scientists in Statistical Physics meets every three years at the STATPHYS Conferences, organized under the sponsorship of the IUPAP. These are the largest general meetings in Statistical Physics and the occasion when both the latest advances of this science in its traditional domain and the new developing trends in other related fields are examined. However, the whole world is facing a difficult situation, and international traffic is restricted due to the covid-19 crisis. Considering this situation, Statphys28 will be held as a hybrid of an on-site conference at the University of Tokyo and an online conference using a web conference system.

The conference will cover a wide range of topics, including traditional aspects of statistical mechanics, non-equilibrium physics, turbulence and nonlinear dynamics, disorderd systems and phase transitions, hard and soft condensed matter, as well as modern applications including information theory, quantum systems and mathematics. Statphys international conferences have been held as follows: Buenos Aires (2019), Lyon (2016), Seoul (2013), Cairns (2010), Genova (2007), Bangalore (2004), Cancun (2001), Paris (1998), Xiamen (1995), Berlin (1992), and Rio de Janeiro (1989).

In addition to the main event, a series of satellite meetings will be staged in the period preceding and following the conference.
