## 5-th Conference on Statistical Physics: Modern Trends & Applications

The 5-th Conference “Statistical Physics: Modern Trends and Applications” will be held on July 3–6, 2019, in Lviv, Ukraine. This Conference continues a tradition of regular international meetings in the statistical physics in Ukraine, established in the 1970-ies and renewed by “Statistical Physics” (Lviv, 2005; Kharkiv, 2006; Lviv, 2009 and Lviv, 2012).

The 5-th Conference “Statistical Physics: Modern Trends and Applications” is organized by the Institute for Condensed Matter Physics of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine (Lviv, Ukraine) and is dedicated to the 110-th anniversary of Academician M.M.Bogolyubov (1909–1992) and to the 50-th anniversary of the Lviv Department for Statistical Theory of Condensed States of the Institute for Theoretical Physics, which gave origin to the Institute for Condensed Matter Physics.
