Synopsis and Scope:
Our conference aims at creating a novel viewpoint in the frontiers of information science and statistical physics, on the initiative of the young generation: a possible integration of information science on large dynamical problems and key ideas of statistical physics for out-of-equilibrium systems.

Going beyond the successful encounter of classical information science and equilibrium statistical physics, we shall gather and discuss recent techniques and ongoing developments of the two branches of science, both dealing with large and dynamically evolving systems.

Some key concepts will be
(1) information thermodynamics,
(2) stochastic processes with feedback control,
(3) modelling and experiments on fluctuating processes far from equilibrium,
(4) glassy systems and dynamic heterogeneity,
(5) machine learning and adaptations in dynamical situations,
(6) dynamics of complex networks,
(7) applications to life science and real-world problems.

As a STATPHYS25 satellite meeting, this conference will be the first international attempt of a series of workshops "Young Scientists Meeting on Statistical Physics and Information Processing" inspired by the same motivation, which have been organized by part of the committee and held so far in Japan with great success.

The present conference extends this stream to the world, providing an international occasion for young active researchers and experienced broad-minded scientists to exchange their ideas over the countries and disciplines, in the hope of forming this new direction of information science and statistical physics.

History of series of "Young Scientists Meeting on Statistical Physics and Information Processing":
Prior to this workshop, a series of meetings were held in Japan by young scientists working around statistical physics and information sciences, to provide places and times for interdisciplinary discussions by young people, with the aim of inspiring wider and deeper perceptions in themselves.

The first meeting of the series was held at Tokyo in March 2010, and was mainly consisting of students. The second one was planned to be held at Tokyo in March 2011, but was canceled due to a serious disaster, the Great East Japan Earthquake. Instead, a small meeting was held at Osaka, to express our indomitable will and to encourage peers all over the Japan. The third one was held at Kyoto in March 2012 with the support of Yukawa Institute for Theoretical Physics, and became a big conference consisting of not only students but also many professional researchers. The success of this conference promotes further challenge of this series. The fourth meeting is going to be held in December 2012 at Tohoku University, to have wider communications with other disciplines including complex networks, applied mathematics, and mathematical finance.

Part of the committee of this STATPHYS25-satellite workshop are who have managed the above four meetings, thus in a sense this satellite can be regarded as the fifth one in the series. We expect further expansions and possibilities of the series in this workshop.

Synopsis and Scope:
The no-man's-land between the metal and the insulator has long puzzled experimentalist and theorists alike. Yet this is where a myriad of novel phases are found, starting from the discovery of cuprate superconductivity twenty five years ago, to manganites, ruthenates, iridates, heavy fermions, organic charge-transfer salts, and all the way to recently discovered iron pnictides and related compounds. Many if not most of exotic features of these materials have been linked to quantum criticality associated with the Mott metal-insulator transition in its many disguises. While experiments give strong hints of quantum critical behavior, its fundamental nature remains all but obvious, and many open questions still beg a convincing answer. Is such Mott quantum criticality possible to reduce to the familiar paradigm of static spontaneous symmetry breaking, or should more exotic mechanisms be invoked? Theoretical approaches ranging from conventional spin-fluctuation theories, to dynamical mean-field theory methods, to gauge theory formulations and topological field theories, and even holographic duality-ideas borrowed from superstring theory, have all been discussed. Despite more than twenty years of intense experimental and theoretical efforts, a clear understanding or a consensus what holds the key has not emerged yet. This workshop will address both the fundamental issues associated with this new type of phase transition, and its many consequences for material science and technology, including applications to systems such as Mottronics, various novel oxide hetero-structures, and many other areas. We plan to bring 30 invited speakers who will cover the most exciting discoveries in this field which have emerged in the last few years. This program will present a natural complement to the topics covered at the flagship StatPhys meeting, where more conventional phase transitions phenomena will be the focus. We also plan to make a concentrated effort to include the participation of appreciable number (30-50) of junior scientists (graduate students, postdocs, and early-career faculty members).

Aims & Scope:
This conference, FNET 2013 Kyoto: Financial Networks and Systemic Risk, is a satellite of STATPHYS 25, held in Seoul, Korea in July 2013.
Stability of financial systems is an important issue in the current climate of high uncertainty for the future of global economy. In this environment, statistical physics offers new analytical approaches to study economic phenomena. Research efforts have recently been conducted on many aspects of global financial systems in Europe, Japan, United States as well as in other countries. Some studies show how economic and financial complex networks are interconnected, some develop network tools to measure risk propagation through these networks, yet some concentrate on data mining, spreading the wing of researchers who explore, analyze, and investigatewide range of global economic data available today.
Some of the Topics covered are:
Network Analysis Tools
Modeling and Simulations of Financial Networks
Data coverage and availability
Risk evaluation on various networks
Business cycles, crisis event analysis
Future tasks and prospects
