 
Welcome to SPMCS’2012! Welcome to Kazan University!
3^{rd} International workshop on Statistical Physics and Mathematics for Complex Systems SPMCS’2012 will be held at Kazan Federal University, Kazan, Russia. The workshop is organized by Kazan University, Russia, and Institut supérieur des matériaux et mécaniques avancées ISMANS, France. Kazan University is one of the oldest universities in Russia and many important discoveries in physics and mathematics have been made here. Among others the nonEuclidian geometry by N. Lobachevsky, electron paramagnetic resonance by E. Zavoisky, classification of Einstein spaces by A. Petrov could be mentioned. In SPMCS’2012 we wish to bring together a broad community of researchers from the different branches of the explosionlike developing complexity science, the science of non reductionist way of thinking facing new multiscales objects, huge amount of data and multi scientific point of views to discuss the fundamental challenges in the theory (topology, statistical physics, dynamical systems, number theory, pedagogy etc). as well as the applied aspects for many practical problems (condensed matter, particle physics, energy, information network, cryptography, biology, sociologic and psychological stability, city development, political sciences etc).SPMCS workshop series was created with the objective to be an interdisciplinary incubator for worldwide exchange of innovational and revolutionary ideas and results. We hope that SPMCS’2012, with Kazan’s scientific background and tradition, will be an exceptional stage of this evolving platform. Its topics can be detailed as follows  statistical physics and thermodynamics for finitesize, nanoscale and nonextensive systems, quantum thermodynamics  time and irreversibility in complex systems  fractal geometry, fractional operator statistics and complex systems  complexity in strong correlated systems  fluctuation theorems, conservation principles and qualities  econophysics, biophysics, bioinformatics, ecophysics and environment strategy  engineering innovation and pedagogy for complex systems  computer simulation and epistemology of modeling for complex systems  geoinformatics  political sciences and prospective strategy  other related fields Also several round table discussions are to be scheduled, the topics are (but not limited to) the following:  mechanics, statistical mechanics and quantum theory  management and policy for complex systems  project and prospective in complex systems  accounting in complex systems 3^{rd}3rd International workshop on Statistical Physics and Mathematics for Complex Systems SPMCS’2012 continues the series of conferences organized at ISMANS, Le Mans (France) in 2008 and at Huazhong Normal University, Wuhan (China) in 2010. The proceedings of the last conference can be found here. SPMCS’2012 is supported by the Government of Tatarstan Republic (Russia), Material Design ^{®} (USA), Réseau national des systèmes complexes RNSC (France), Institut supérieur des matériaux et mécaniques avancées ISMANS (France), Kazan Federal University (Russia).
