Mesoscale Simulations of Soft Matter Out of Equilibrium

18. - 20. March 2009
Forschungszentrum Jülich, Germany



Soft matter and biological systems are often characterized by mesoscopic length- and time-scales, and by energy scales comparable to the thermal energy. This implies high sensitive to external fields and the ubiquity of non-equilibrium phenomena.

Various mesoscale simulation techniques have been developed to cope with the wide range of relevant length- and time-scales and the multi-component nature of soft matter. The workshop will bring together experts exploiting such simulation techniques to study important physical phenomena on the mesoscale. The behavior of soft matter and biological systems under equilibrium and non-equilibrium conditions will be addressed, including gelation, confinement, external fields, flow, and self-propulsion.
