Phonons 2023

The 17th International Conference on Phonon Scattering in Condensed Matter, Phonons 2023, is the latest in the pre-eminent conference series on the physics of phonons and phonon interactions. It is held nominally every three years, the recent previous conferences were held in Nottingham, UK (2015) and Nanjing, China (2018). After the pandemics, Phonons 2023 retakes its momentum. Phonons 2023 will consist of: plenary sessions covering some of the latest developments in phonon physics; parallel oral sessions, including invited talks on key topics; poster sessions; and social events to facilitate discussions in the phonon physics community. The conference will take place in Paris, France. The city has excellent transport links to the major international airports in Europe and is easily reached by visitors from all over the world.

Dear participants,

We would like to address a matter of utmost importance regarding the trip arrangements for Phonons2023. It has come to our attention that some of you may have received an email from offering assistance with hotel reservations for the trip. We want to inform you that we do not have any affiliation or partnership with any external company to handle trip arrangements.

Thank you for your attention, and we look forward to welcoming you to the event.

Best regards,

The Phonons2023 Team
