The workshop “International Workshop and Young Scientist School on Critical Phenomena and Phase Transition” will be held September 20-24, 2017 in Yerevan, Armenia. Phase transitions in equilibrium and, in particular, in non-equilibrium continue to be an area of great interest to researchers in a range of fields, from statistical physics, through lattice field theory, to sociophysics. The present meeting is designed to expose the state of the art in this field as well as to provide a stage for discussions about current challenges and future directions. The workshop is devoted to the fundamental concepts of statistical physics and intended to communicate a basic understanding of the central concepts of the field. Additionally, the conference is put together on the occasion of the 65th birthday of Nerses Ananikyan who significantly contributed to this field on a broad range of problems. The topics of this year’s conference accordingly cover a broad range from spin systems to macromolecules. In particular, it is focused on critical phenomena and phase transition, exact results for lattice models, conformal field theory, self-organized criticality, chaos and dynamical system, entanglement, complex network science.
