Transport Properties in Soft Matter Systems

02.04.2024 12:00 - 05.04.2024 12:30


The complex dynamics of soft matter systems have been a focus of study for decades. The importance of dynamic and transport processes is reflected in the many layers of complexity at different scales and areas, spanning from transport inside cells, anomalous diffusion in glasses, cell migration, and information flow in society. Continuous progress in the field of transport properties has been achieved, by studying experimental model systems that allow us to break the intrinsic complexity and tackle crucial fundamental physics and engineering challenges. The use of numerical models to study systems at different levels of description continuously allows us to gather new information and support theoretical and analytical approaches often based on a coarse-grained picture.

This workshop aims to cover the state of the art in various systems and approaches focused on the design, engineering, modelling and study of active and passive dynamics. Specifically, we aim to connect the theoretical and mathematical framework to the current experimental development, hoping it will lead to insightful discussions, tackling open challenges in the field.
