33rd M. Smoluchowski Symposium will be held on-line on December 3-4 2020 using MS Teams platform.

The subtitle of this year Symposium is "Brownian motion and active matter".

The scope of the Symposium will cover:

  • Nonequilibrium systems with large fluctuations and strong correlations
  • Stochastic and quantum thermodynamics
  • Fluctuation relations and large deviation theory
  • Decoherence, chaos and quantum-classical correspondence
  • Diffusive processes and weak ergodicity breaking
  • Fluctuation-dissipation relation in fluids, granular media, nano- and biological-systems
  • Active matter, collective phenomena in living systems
  • Nonlinear dynamics and turbulence
  • Complex networks
  • Simulations and modelling in polymer physics and soft matter
  • New frontiers in contemporary statistical physics Interdisciplinary applications
