Workshop on
"Dynamics of Non-Equilibrium Systems"

19 - 30 August 1996: Miramare-Trieste, Italy

M. BARMA (Tata Institute, Bombay, India)
A. MARITAN (SISSA, Trieste, Italy)
R. STINCHCOMBE (Oxford University, U.K.)
Non-equilibrium many-body systems often have very interesting properties on large space and time scales. Recent work on stochastic evolution models of interacting particles has contributed greatly to our understanding of such systems, but there are still many open problems. This workshop will focus on a connected set of currently interesting topics, namely: The aim is to have a mix of invited lecturers and other workers in these fields, including younger participants at the postdoctoral or senior research student level. The planned schedule of relatively few lectures per day would allow ample time for interactions and discussion and brief presentations by participants.

Invited speakers

The list of invited speakers includes:-

P. Bak (Brookhaven National Lab., Upton)
J.R. Banavar (Pennsylvania State, University Park)
J.P. Bouchaud (CEA, Saclay)
A. Bray (University of Manchester)
M. Cieplak (Polish Academy of Sciences, Warsaw)
B. Derrida (ENS, Paris)

Requiring Financial Support under the
European Commission's "Human Capital and Mobility" Programme

        The International Centre for Theoretical Physics gratefully
acknowledges support from the European Commission, to help young scientists
(age up to 35 for men and 40 for women) from the European Economic Area to
participate in the Workshop on Dynamics of Non-Equilibrium systems (19 - 30
August 1996).  Upon receipt of this application form, the ICTP will submit
your name for some financial assistance.  The outcome of selection for
grants will be known only nearer the time of the event and,should you be
one of those selected for support, we shall let you know immediately. The

or be residing and working in an EEA state for at least one year.

European Economic Area:  Austria,  Belgium,  Denmark,  Finland,  France,
Germany,  Greece,  Iceland, Ireland,  Italy,  Luxembourg,  The Netherlands,
Norway,  Portugal,   Spain, Sweden,   United Kingdom.

I wish to apply for a Human Capital and Mobility grant to attend the
Workshop on Dynamics of Non-Equilibrium Systems (19 - 30 August 1996).

Current or projected research activities and motives for wishing to attend
the Euroconferences:

Do you or your research group hold a grant from which Euroconference
participation could be funded?      Yes        No

Have you applied for a grant for this purpose from any other body?
Yes          No
If yes, what result?

(Optional) You may include a "Comments on benefit of participation" letter
