Italian National Conference on Condensed Matter Physics (Including Optics, Photonics, Liquids, Soft Matter) 09-13 september 2013

CONFERENCE PROGRAM
FisMat 2013 will host the annual Conferences of the Italian Society for Synchrotron Radiation Light (SILS) and of the Italian Society for Neutron Spectroscopy (SISN).

Dear colleagues, its a great pleasure for me to welcome all of you at FisMat 2013, the Italian conference on condensed matter physics and related fields. The conference is held at the Politecnico di Milano, which in 2013 is celebrating its 150th anniversary. The motivation which inspired all the people involved in the organization of this event has been the desire to bring under the same roof a large fraction of the Italian scientists working in this field of research, independently from their affiliation. We believe that our effort has been rewarded as testified by the 800 contributions received from researchers working in many Italian and foreign institutions. These contributions cover a large spectrum of arguments, many of them moving across the border that separates physics from other branches of science such as chemistry, biology, medicine, cultural heritage. The relevance of all this is that, after nearly a decade, for the Italian community of low energy physics this is the first chance to meet again after the suppression of INFM, the Italian Institute for the Physics of Matter, a dramatic event that caused a diaspora that has never been recovered. Our hope is that this conference will give to all of us the possibility to see whats going outside our laboratory and stimulate the reestablishment of links between the research groups and the creation of research networks for better facing the strongly competitive international scenario. And, at the end, well see, if they are roses they will bloom. Ezio Puppin (Conference Chairman)
