Scope:

Soft matter science is an interdisciplinary field of research, attracting attention from chemists, physicists, biologists and engineers. It has recently provided important findings that are highly relevant to materials science and life science. The aim of the symposium “Soft active interfaces” is to gather novel experimental and theoretical aspects of interfaces produced by polymers, colloids, liquid crystals, particles, etc, from a spatio-temporal point of view. Furthermore, current research efforts and future direction on biomedical applications will be discussed.
Symposiums will focus around three main advances: i) a novel (macro)molecular design for soft active interfaces, ii) control and characterization of soft active interfaces, and iii) Biomedical applications with soft active interfaces.

Topics:

1.Polymers
2.Particles
3.Soft interface
4.Molecular recognition
5.Biomedical applications
