This conference will bring together the broad and diverse community interested in the physics of soft and biological matter, which includes liquid crystals, polymers, colloids, membranes, interfaces, cellular biophysics, and biological macromolecules. 

The programme will span a number of key cross-cutting themes, including self-assembly and patterning, rheology, biomimetics, non-equilibrium phenomena, as well as molecular imaging, optical methods and spectroscopies, which are all relevant to the wide range of length-and time-scales present in these fascinating systems.  This meeting follows the very successful conference on the same topic in 2014.   

Immediately preceding this conference in the same location is the Advanced School in Soft Matter "Solutions in the Spring", providing a comprehensive foundation for researchers in the field of soft matter, liquids, and complex fluids.
