The aim of this School is to provide a comprehensive foundation for researchers in the field of soft matter liquids and complex fluids.

The lectures will introduce key topics of current interest together with the theoretical, experimental and computer simulation approaches used to address them. The School is directed towards postgraduate students from a wide range of backgrounds including physics, chemistry, chemical engineering and biophysics.

Following immediately from this School at the same venue is The Physics of Soft and Biological Matter conference, which will include topics such as liquids, liquid crystals, polymers, colloids, membranes, interfaces, cellular biophysics, and biological macromolecules.

Organised by the IOP Liquids and Complex Fluids Group.


Co-sponsored by the European Physical Society.
