As part of a special collaborative issue, 4open is inviting contributions developed from research which will be presented at the 20th International Conference on Recent Progress in Many-Body Theories.

4open encourages all contributing authors to develop their conference presentations into full papers that explore the research presented at the International Conference. The submission platform opens on the 13th September 2019, and articles will be published open access in early 2020.

The issue will be guest edited by Professor Eric Suraud, Laboratory of Theoretical Physics, Institute of Research on Complex Atomic and Molecular Systems (IRSAMC), Université Paul Sabatier, Toulouse, France and Dr. Giovanni Manfredi, Director of Research, Scientific Research National Center (CNRS), Institute of Physics and Chemistry of Materials of Strasbourg, France.

The International Conference on Recent Progress in Many-Body Theories, held from 9th-13th September in Toulouse, France, brings together many scientists from a range of areas, dealing with the many-body problem. Topics include ‘High Performance Computing platforms’ and ‘Non equilibrium dynamics and dissipation’. This meeting allows scientists to share and discuss the latest research and knowledge relating to the many-body problem.
