PSL Soft and Living Matter days 2022 (7-8th July)

Welcome on the website of the 2nd edition of the PSL Soft and Living Matter days! This event will take place from July 7th to 8th 2022 at ESPCI in amphitheatre Boreau (C staircase, 1st floor, 10 rue Vauquelin, 75005 Paris).

For this second Edition we have decided to organize a 2-days thematic workshop focused on Living Matter at all scales (from molecules to cell assemblies), aiming to highlight the role of Soft Matter science in our endeavour to understand such complex systems.

We hope that this event devoted to Soft and Living Matter will become regular, alternating a year with a thematic workshop like in 2022 and a year with a workshop+summer school devoted to all areas of Soft Matter (as in 2021 and hopefully 2023).

In addition to the exciting line of speakers (see below), we will have several topical sessions with contributed talks and one apero-poster session on the 7th of July at 6pm. So we count on you to register to the event and submit an abstract! 

Deadline for registration and abstract submission 17 June 2022
