1st EPS-DPL Biology for Physics Conference

News del 21/10/2016

The European Physical Society within the collaboration of the Biology for Physics Division is organising the 1st Biology for Physics Conference, which will take place from 15-18 January 2017 in Barcelona, Spain.

The workshop aims to bring about 25 prominent scientists who have been working over the past years on several biologically motivated problems, have made outstanding contributions in their respective fields and for whom physics is an everyday source of inspiration to better understand biology.

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

Online submission deadline: 20 November
