The contents of the workshop are organized under the umbrella of a few selected themes which all share the underlying playground of nonequilibrium physics which is at the core of living matter. Topics will include

  • Physical principles of mechanochemical networks: new challenges for soft matter physics
  • Systems biology and self-organization: from active matter to cells and tissues
  • Stochastic thermodynamics: from single molecules to complex machinery
  • Physics of biological evolution: from the second law to the selection of structures
