Welcome !

This international scientific event will gather experts in emergent phenomena, topological properties and non-equilibrium physics in systems as diverse as magnetic materials, glasses and soft matter.

It will also be the opportunity to celebrate the 60th anniversary of our dear colleague Peter C. W. Holdsworth !

The conference will gather a very diverse pool of prestigious invited speakers (see list below). We are planning a poster session for Wednesday, Dec. 15th, and we encourage contributed participants to submit abstracts for poster presentations. A fraction of the submitted abstracts (about ten of them) will be promoted to a short oral contribution.

The conference dinner is expected to take place on Wednesday evening at the "Brasserie des Confluences", just a few tram stops from the ENS Lyon.
