Filaments, Membranes, Cells - and their Interactions

SoftComp Topical Workshop, open to everyone!

28 - 31 January 2018
Jülich, Germany


This topical workshop will focus on the main building blocks that are relevant for living matter: polymers, filaments, membranes, and entire cells. The themes will range from interface-mediated aggregation processes and mechanical properties of membranes, polymers, and fibrils, to aggregation of bacteria in biofilms and interaction of cells within polymeric gels. In biological systems, also metabolic processes significantly contribute to active aggregation and structure formation.

The workshop aims to bring together researchers that study engineered systems with researchers that focus on biological systems.

This workshop is sponsored by the SoftComp network, but is open to anyone who wishes to take part. Contributed talks and posters will be selected on the basis of the abstracts submitted.

We look forward to welcoming you to Jülich in January!

Thorsten Auth, Benedikt Sabaß, Patricia Bassereau, and Gerhard Gompper
