Joel Lebowitz (Rutgers, State University of New Jersey, USA) Roberto Livi (UniversitÓ di Firenze, Italy)
Satya Majumdar (UniversitÚ de Paris Sud, France)
David Mukamel (The Weizmann Institute of Science, Israel) Stefano Ruffo (UniversitÓ di Firenze, Italy)

Local Organizer: Lapo Casetti, Stefano Lepri

Period: from 05-05-2014 to 04-07-2014

Deadline: 30-11-2013
The aim of the workshop is to bring together leading researchers, young scientists and PhD students working in different areas of nonequilibrium statistical mechanics. This workshop aims at strengthening the interaction among different communities in this field and at exploring open problems and new directions of research. Let us mention: the characterization of many-body probability distributions relying on what has been done for simple exclusion or zero range processes; the study of long-range correlations that determine a variety of collective phenomena; the derivation of universal current distributions in driven diffusive systems and novel universal distributions for extreme values of correlated random variables; the relevance of ensemble inequivalence observed in systems with long-range interactions for driven nonequilibrium systems; the study of anomalous transport processes in kinetic and dynamical models in one and two spatial dimensions.
