  • Boltzmann Medal awarded to

    John Cardy, for his numerous seminal contributions to two-dimensional critical phenomena in statistical physics, including the development and application of conformal field theory, finite-size effects and percolation.

    Bernard Derrida, for his major contributions to the understanding of disordered and of out-of-equilibrium systems, in particular through the random energy model, and through his breakthroughs in the asymmetric exclusion model.

The Conference

The STATPHYS Conference series takes place every three years in a different continent to enhance the international relevance and visibility of the leading world event in the broad field of Statistical Physics and all its interdisciplinary developments.

Recent meetings have been held in GENOVA (Italy), BANGALORE (India), CANCUN (Mexico) and PARIS (France). STATPHYS 24 will be the first time this event is held in Australia and only the second time in the southern hemisphere. The entire Australian scientific community enthusiastically supports this meeting and warmly welcomes all international participants.

According to tradition, the highest international recognition in the field of Statistical Physics, the Boltzmann Medal, will be awarded at this meeting. In addition several satellite meetings will be held along with the main event, adding to the scientific value of the meeting.

The organisers have provided assurance that STATPHYS 24 will be conducted in accordance with IUPAP principles as stated in the ICSU-Document "Universality of Science" (sixth edition, 1989) regarding the free circulation of scientists for international purposes. In particular, no bona fide scientist will be excluded from participation on the grounds of national origin, nationality, or political consideration unrelated to science.
