Symposium | Soft Matter Design: from Fundamentals to Applications

The Laboratory of Physics and Physical Chemistry of Foods is organizing a one-day symposium on soft matter design. The symposium aims to bring together researchers from different disciplines to exchange ideas of the latest developments in material design and review some recent applied and fundamental studies on designing soft materials with desired mechanical, rheological or optical properties. For attending this symposium registration is not required.
