Joint ICTP-FANAS CONFERENCE ON TRENDS IN NANOTRIBOLOGY
19-24 October 2009
The Abdus Salam International Centre of Theoretical Physics, Trieste, Italy.
The aim of the Conference is to bring together scientists from all over the world, active at the forefront of the experimental and theoretical developments of atomic-scale friction. Both theoretical/computational approaches and experimental state-of-the-art techniques will be covered. By allowing ample time for discussion after each talk, and through an informal setup, this Conference should be an excellent occasion to establish connections between groups working on related issues. .

XI International Course on Complexity
GRAINS FRICTION AND FAULTS
20-25 July 2009
Erice, Italy.
The aim of the Course is to bring together world leaders in the manifold subjects and fields related to Granular Materials, Complexity, Friction and Faults. The goal is to provide researchers with a rare opportunity to build unifying perspectives and tools for addressing emerging problems in these areas. The program and the venue of the School will promote free exchange of ideas and stimulate new insights into physical phenomena from atomic to plate tectonic scales.

European Geoscience Union, General Assembly
13-18 April 2008
Vienna, Austria.
The EGU General Assembly will bring together geoscientists from all over Europe and the rest of the world into one meeting covering all disciplines of the Earth, Planetary and Space Sciences. Especially for young scientists the EGU appeals to provide a forum to present their work and discuss their ideas with experts in all fields of geosciences.

Physical Aspects of Fracture Scaling and Size Effects
9-14 March 2008
Ascona, Switzerland.

Complexity Research Projects Forum
6th October 2007
Dresden, Germany.
The CRP forum is a day of discussion on complexity research projects, taking place after ECCS 2007, this year’s European Complex Systems Conference. In contrast to the ECCS programme, the presentation at the CRP forum is strictly project based, i.e. posters and oral presentations are not about individual research, but on joint research of a project and/or research institution.

Fluctuation and Scaling in Materials
July 4-7 2007
Todi (Umbria), Italy.
The aim of this satellite meeting to Statphys 23 is to bring together theorists and experimentalists working in phenomena of relevance for the statistical mechanics community, having their roots in materials science.
During the workshop, the TRIGS meeting will take place on Friday July 6 17:30-19:30
Organizers: Mikko Alava, Alberto Petri.
