The first edition of the School of the Italian Statistical Physics Society (SocietĂ  Italiana di Fisica Statistica, SIFS) will be held at the IMT School for Advanced Studies Lucca in the two weeks between the 31st of August and the 10th of September 2020. Students are expected to arrive on Sunday, August 30th and to leave on Friday, September 11th.

The school will be structured in two main courses, four seminar courses, and in tutoring activities. The two morning courses will be held by Roberto Benzi (Hydrodynamics and Turbulence) and by Alessandro Sarracino (Stochastic Thermodynamics). The four afternoon seminar courses will be held by Franco Bagnoli (Computational Lab), Diego Garlaschelli (Statistical Physics of Networks), Andrea Puglisi (Granular materials) and Luca Salasnich (Quantum Statistical Physics with cold atoms).
