Soft Condensed Matter 20th anniversary symposium

Dear (former) SCM group members,

The year 2019 marks the 20th anniversary of the Soft Condensed Matter (SCM) group.
We will celebrate this anniversary with a two-day scientific symposium on Wednesday 18 and Thursday 19 December, and a closing dinner on Thursday 19 December 2019 to which you are warmly invited. The symposium will consist of talks by former and current group members.
Please let us know if you intend to come or not by clicking the link and submitting the symposium form. If you would like to give a talk, you can give us a tentative title on the form.
It is an excellent opportunity to see former colleagues and catch up.
We hope to see you all at the anniversary celebration!

Soft Condensed Matter Group

Soft condensed matter systems are materials which deform easily under the influence of external fields such as electric fields, shear or gravity. They contain structures with length scales that are much larger than atomic or molecular dimensions, and display dynamics that are much slower. Nevertheless, their structure and dynamics are still governed by thermal fluctuations.
We study the physics of soft matter model systems and, using these insights, fabricate new mesostructured materials from them. Our research tools consist of confocal microscopy, scattering methods, colloid synthesis, computer simulations, and theory.

We form one group with Molecular Biophysics
