Nantes 4,5,6 june 2014: Grands Systèmes Physiques, du microscopique au macroscopique

The conference will focus on statistical mechanics and the speakers will present some of their most recent contributions to various topics as Polymer models, Parabolic Anderson model, Percolation, Metastability etc... The conference will take place from June 4 to June 6 in Nantes. The first two days will be hosted by the LMJL and the last day will be part of the 14th Journées Scientifiques de l'Université de Nantes at the Cité Internationale des Congrés.

The Program is now available here


Registration :
