Data breaches, identity theft, online and phone scams are a reality in our lives today. Never reveal sensitive financial information to a person or business you don’t know, whether they reach out to you via phone or text.


Please be aware that the International Institute of Physics, IIP, does not request payment information of any kind. Scammers sometimes approach participants claiming to be able to provide accommodation and asking for credit card information. Please do not give any information away. IIP will be in touch via official email regarding accommodation and financial support for qualified applicants. If you have any questions, please contact IIP events department at events@iip.ufrn.br

The goal of this workshop is to open a space for discussions of the latest results on statistical mechanics and evolution of out-of-equilibrium systems, with special emphasis on condensed and soft matter systems. It is a two weeks event. The first one is dedicated to the invited and selected talks, followed by a second week of a workshop intended to discuss more technical issues and setting the starting point for long time collaborations between participants.
