The conference will address the foundations of quantum physics, quantum many body physics, and non-equilibrium statistical physics. The systems considered will be mainly on the order of mesoscopic (nanoscale) size, and include those of both natural and artificial origin.

The main goal of the conference is to contribute to a better understanding of the behavior of mesoscopic systems, and to provide insight into the problems of the foundations, relying on the theoretical and experimental methods of condensed matter physics and quantum optics.

Special attention will be given to non-equilibrium quantum systems, physics of quantum information and manifestation of quantum effects in biological systems, in terms of both theory and experiment. Subjects from astrophysics, gravitation or cosmology related to the above scope will also be included.

The interdisciplinary character of the conference will be supported by choice of key speakers who, apart from their specializations, are not only able to report specific results within their fields, but are also able to discuss the state of the art of their fields from the standpoint of broader perspective of overlaps with other fields.
