Interdisciplinary Challenges in Non-Equilibrium Physics
10- 13 April 2019 University of Edinburgh, The Higgs Centre for Theoretical Physics, School of Physics and Astronomy
Non-equilibrium processes play important roles at many length scales, from controlling chromatin interactions within a cell nucleus to governing the collective dynamics of fish schools. "Interdisciplinary Challenges in Non-Equilibrium Physics" will bring together early career researchers working across these scales. By identifying common theoretical insights, computational approaches and experimental methodologies between disciplines, the meeting aims to promote collaborations and knowledge exchange among early career researchers. The sessions will each focus on one of six inter-related topics: biophysics, polymers, ecology and population dynamics, active matter, non-equilibrium statistical mechanics and glasses and disordered systems. The meeting will take place at the Higgs Centre for Theoretical Physics in the King's Buildings campus of the University of Edinburgh, running over four days from Wednesday the 10th (afternoon) to Saturday the 13 (morning) of April, 2019. This meeting is supported by the Higgs Centre, the EPSRC Network on Emergence and Physics Far From Equilibrium (EMNEQ) and Physics of Life.
Who should attend?
This meeting should be of broad interest to early career researchers working across scales in physics and biology.
