POSTPONED: Fundamentals of Growing Active Matter

Abstract

THIS EVENT HAS NOW BEEN POSTPONED

Due to the coronavirus COVID-19 outbreak we decided to postpone the workshop to a later date. If you have registered, we will contact you when a new date is agreed, and you won't have to resubmit the abstract unless you want to. If you have already paid the fee, it will be reimbursed.

A wide variety of physical properties of living systems arise from interplay between activity and growth. These include pattern formation in bacterial colonies, ordering in actin networks and the emergence of resistance in tumours.

The workshop's main goal is to gather together researchers working on different systems and using different techniques (theory, simulations, and experiments). We hope that the meeting will help to identify universal characteristics of growing active matter and reveal unifying general principles (if they exist).
