Organizers: Hugues Chaté & Xiaqing Shi


Sponsored by NSFC Key-Project 11635002


Date:    September 15, 2017

Venue:  A203, CSRC Building

Address: Beijing Computational Science Research Center (CSRC)

               Building No.9, No. 10 Xibeiwang East Road, Haidian District, Beijing 
               北京市海淀区西北旺东路10号院9号楼, 北京计算科学研究中心


Active matter is a new, fast-growing, field of research with statistical physics at its core, and potential applications in biology, novel materials, and “swarm intelligence” systems. This symposium will provide an opportunity to listen to experts working at the leading of this exciting field, with talks covering many of the systems of interest, from animal groups to bacteria to functionalized colloids.
