Barcelona, 15-18 January 2017.

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

A Royal Society Discussion Meeting is taking place in London 27 and 28 June 2016, organised by Robert Gilbert, Hagan Bayley and Gregor Anderluh.

Registration is free and now open and poster abstract submissions are welcome.

We have a fantastic line-up of speakers: Helen Saibil, Rudolf Glockshuber, Dek Woolfson, Bill DeGrado, Jose Caaveiro, Ana-Jesus Garcia-Saez, Ruth Kluck, Themis Lazaridis, Doryen Bubeck, Michelle Dunstone, John Brumell, Gabriel Waksman, Susan Buchanan, Hendrik Dietz, Alex Noy, Mark Wallace, and Carol Robinson.

You and your colleagues are encouraged to consider coming to join the discussion (15 minutes after each 30 minute talk) or present a poster!
