XXVIII International Materials Research Congress, August 18-23 2019, Cancun, Mexico

Equilibrium and Beyond-Equilibrium Self-Organization in Soft Materials:

The goal of the symposium is to bring together scientists different fields and with different expertise to identify analogies between diverse phenomena to build general principles about the self-organization of soft matter at, and, far-from-equilibrium. The symposium will be highly interdisciplinary and will encourage discussions and cross-fertilization of ideas. Both experimental and modeling studies will be addressed.

Symposium Topics:

  • Complex Liquid Crystalline Mesophases
  • Bio-Inspired Organic-Inorganic Composites
  • Intracellular Phase Transitions
  • Living Soft Matter
  • Organic Electronics
  • Supramolecular and Liquid Crystalline Polymers
  • Dynamic and Equilibrium Self-Assembly
  • Multicomponent Polymersomes
  • Polyelectrolyte Complexes
  • Kinetically Arrested Nanostructures
