The nonlinear relaxation process in many condensed matter systems proceeds through metastable states, giving rise to long-lived states. Stochastic many-body systems, classical and quantum, often display a complex and slow relaxation towards a stationary state. A common phenomenon in the dynamics of out of equilibrium systems is the metastability, and the problem of the lifetime of metastable states involves fundamental aspects of nonequilibrium statistical mechanics. In spite of such ubiquity, the microscopic understanding of metastability and related out of equilibrium dynamics still raise fundamental questions. The aim of this meeting is to bring together scientists interested in the challenging problems connected with the new trends in topological states of matter and dynamics of out of equilibirum quantum and mesoscopic physical systems from both theoretical and experimental point of view, within an interdisciplinary context. The conference will be a discussion forum to promote new ideas in this fertile field of research, and in particular new trends such as out-of-equilibrium topological states, novel types of quantum phase transitions occurring in non-equilibrium steady states and topological phase transitions.
