View Full Version : 1st Announcement: I2CAM Workshop on "Soft Active Materials: fromgranular rods to flocks, cells and tissues"

Applications are invited for the I2CAM Workshop on "Soft Active Materials:
from granular rods to flocks, cells and tissues", to be held at Syracuse
University, May 18-21, 2009.

The Workshop will bring together junior and senior researchers working on
the emergent properties of soft active matter in a highly interactive mode.
The focus of the Workshop is on nonequilibrium collective behavior and
locomotion in active systems, including mixtures of cytoskeletal filaments
and motor proteins, the cell cytoskeleton, bacterial colonies, collections
of cells in elastic matrices or living tissues, insects and animal groups,
and vibrated granular layers.

We encourage the participation of young researchers and will offer a number
of fellowships to graduate students and postdocs.

To apply, please visit the Workshop's website at
The deadline for applications is February 15, 2009.
