After 4 years and all the difficulties induced by the pandemic, we are honored to host the 26th International Conference on Noise and Fluctuations (ICNF) in Grenoble for 2023!

The ICNF is a biennial event running since 1968. The recent past 10 conferences in this series were organized in Gainesville (2001), Prague (2003), Salamanca (2005), Tokyo (2007), Pisa (2009), Toronto (2011), Montpellier (2013), Xi’An (2015), Vilnius (2017) and Neuchatel (2019).

The aim of this biennial conference is to bring together specialists in fluctuation and noise phenomena from different fields in science, engineering and business, including material, electronic and optoelectronic devices, sensors, systems and nanostructures, analog and digital circuits and systems, complex systems, biological and biophysical systems, social and financial systems, reliability, to address both fundamental and applied issues.

We invite all students and researchers working in topics related to noise and fluctuations to submit their abstracts and come and enjoy the city of Grenoble!
