Gothenburg, Sweden

The anniversary 40th Stochastic Processes and their Applications SPA-2018 conference will be held in Gothenburg, Sweden from Monday 11th to Friday 15th of June 2018. The SPA Conferences are organised under patronage of the Bernoulli Society and can justifiably be regarded as the most important international scientific meeting on the theory and applications of stochastic processes.

Plenary lectures will be given by:

***Francois Baccelli **(**Entropy lecture**): François Baccelli is Simons Math+X Chair in Mathematics and ECE at UT Austin. His research is at the interface between Applied Mathematics (probability theory, stochastic geometry, dynamical systems) and Communications (network science, information theory, wireless networks). He is co-author of research monographs on point processes and queues (with P. Brémaud); max plus algebras and network dynamics (with G. Cohen, G. Olsder and J.P. Quadrat); stationary queuing networks (with P. Brémaud); stochastic geometry and wireless networks (with B. Blaszczyszyn). Before joining UT Austin, he held positions in France, at INRIA, Ecole Normale Supérieure and Ecole Polytechnique. He is a member of the French Academy of Sciences and part time researcher at INRIA.

* The other lectures: Mia Deijfen; Alison Etheridge (Levy lecture); Patricia Goncalves; Kurt Johansson; Olav Kallenberg; Davar Khoshnevisan (IMS lecture); Anna De Masi (IMS lecture); Mikhail Menshikov; Annie Millet; Asaf Nachmias; Jeffrey Steif (Doob lecture); Nike Sun

Linnaeus University, Växjö, Sweden

The conference *Towards Ultimate Quantum Theory (UQT)* is arranged by International Centre for Mathematical Modelling in physics, engineering and cognitive sciences (ICMM) at Linnaeus University in Växjö, Sweden. This is the 19th Växjö conference devoted to quantum foundations and applications of quantum theory, especially quantum information and probability. It is devoted to quantum foundations (including philosophical issues), experiment, and recently developed quantum technologies (with emphasize of their foundational aspects).

Methods originally developed in Information Theory have found wide applicability in computational neuroscience. Beyond these original methods there is a need to develop novel tools and approaches that are driven by problems arising in neuroscience.

A number of researchers in computational/systems neuroscience and in information/communication theory are investigating problems of information representation and processing. While the goals are often the same, these researchers bring different perspectives and points of view to a common set of neuroscience problems. Often they participate in different fora and their interaction is limited.

The goal of the workshop is to bring some of these researchers together to discuss challenges posed by neuroscience and to exchange ideas and present their latest work.

The workshop is targeted towards computational and systems neuroscientists with interest in methods of information theory as well as information/communication theorists with interest in neuroscience.

Montreal, QC, Canada

On behalf of the International Association of Mathematical Physics, the International Scientific Committee, and the Local Organizing Committee we invite you to participate in the XIX International Congress on Mathematical Physics to be held in Montreal, Quebec, Canada from July 23 to July 28. The International Congress of Mathematical Physics (ICMP), on its three year cycle, is the most important conference of the International Association of Mathematical Physics. The ICMP 2018 will be a major event, where new results and future challenges will be discussed, illustrating the richness and vitality of Mathematical Physics.

Following a tradition started in London in 2000, the ICMP 2018 will be preceded by the Young Researchers Symposium (July 20 and 21, 2018). Seven satellite meetings are being organized in Banff, Toronto, Montreal, and Perimeter Institute either before or after ICMP 2018.

We hope that you will be able to attend and contribute to the success of the meeting.

We are looking forward to see you in Montreal, Quebec, Canada in 2018.

The aim of this meeting is to bring together scientists interested in the challenging problems connected with the dynamics of out of equilibirum classical and quantum physical systems from both theoretical and experimental point of view, within an **interdisciplinary** context.

Specifically, three main areas of out-of-equilibrium statistical mechanics will be covered: **long range interactions** and **multistability**, **anomalous diffusion**, and **quantum systems**.

Moreover, the conference will be a discussion forum to promote new ideas in this fertile field of research, and in particular new trends such as **quantum thermodynamics** and novel types of **quantum phase transitions** occurring in **non-equilibrium steady states**, and** topological phase transitions.**

Paris, France

The growing ability to manipulate quantum systems is paving the way for a second quantum revolution and a number of initiatives worldwide have been formed to foster quantum technologies. These exciting novel applications are exploiting specific quantum properties which are not accessible with classical resources such as superposition and entanglement of individual quantum systems.

The objectives of the QTech conference is to present the latest developments of quantum technologies in the domains of quantum communication, computation, simulation, sensors and metrology, and their implementation using various platforms from atoms and ions to solid states, superconducting circuits and optics. Topics: Quantum information processing and computing Quantum simulation Quantum sensors and quantum metrology Quantum communication Fundamental science for quantum technologies Atom and ion trapping Superconducting circuits Quantum optics and non-classical light sources Solid states and hybrid systems
