Fluctuations are ubiquitous in soft matter systems involving dynamically heterogeneous processes, including complex fluids such as water, electrolytes, biological solutions and colloids. The appearance of next-generation Large Scale Research Infrastructures (LSRIs), such as the Swedish synchrotron radiation facility MAX IV, the upcoming European Spallation Source (ESS) and the superconductive European X-ray Free Electron Laser (EuXFEL) provides new opportunities to capture fluctuations and unify our understanding of these phenomena across length scales and timescales.
This focus event will bring together experimentalists and theoreticians in strong synergy aiming to gather and stimulate the Nordic and international community engaged in fluctuations and dynamics in soft matter systems, pointing out new directions, challenges and opportunities in diverse disciplines including physics, chemistry, biophysics, biochemistry, rheology and computational science. The workshop will take place in Nordita, Stockholm and is currently planned as an onsite event. The goal is to collect science cases related to fluctuations in soft matter in the form of a report or a review paper that highlights the state of the art of the field relevant to the new LSRIs that are becoming available to the Nordic communities.
Registration is now closed. However, if you are interested to join the workshop with a poster contribution or simple participation, it still may be possible, so feel free to reach out to the organizers.
