Equilibrium statistical physics provides an extremely powerful and universal formalism for describing the behaviour of many-particle systems in thermal equilibrium, but we have no counterpart of such a theory for non-equilibrium systems. Since most systems and processes found in nature are out of equilibrium, such a theory, if it can be formulated, will have an enormous impact. Indeed the large interest in the field of Stochastic thermodynamics stems from the fact that, under certain restrictions and assumptions, it provides a general theory for small out-of-equilibrium systems which generalizes fundamental equilibrium concepts such as the  fluctuation-dissipation
theorem, current  fluctuations and linear response to the non-equilibrium domain. Currently the interest of the statistical physics community is divided broadly into expanding the  field of stochastic thermodynamics to encompass an even larger class of systems, as well as to understand costs, trade-o?s and constraints in the process of measuring or manipulating non-equilibrium systems. An understanding of these issues could definitely lead to many applications but also lead to new insights
into non-equilibrium behaviour. In this program we aim to discuss these topics which we think will be in the very forefront of the research field by 2024.
