Aims


This 2nd workshop is addressed to a multidisciplinary scientific community with enhanced exchanges
between high level senior scientist and young researchers. It is an opportunity to give young researchers
(PhD students and fellowships) a global overview of elaboration and characterization of complex materials
found in many domains at the frontier of several disciplines (physics, chemistry, biology, applied mathematics,kkkk
chemical engineering…).

Scope


The workshop will focus on elaboration as well as study at different scales of properties and structure ofcomplex multi-component systems from polymers, colloids, amphiphiles, particles, membranes, withsome degree of self-organization, a high sensitivity to external fields and specific dynamical properties.Experimental and theoretical understanding is still a challenge for the scientific community, becausethese complex and disordered materials present strong interactions and often have multiple correlationsof spatial and temporal scales, unlike simple liquids and solids.
The functional design of structured materials is the cause of many technological advances in the field ofcivil engineering, textiles and innovative coatings, energy, nano-materials, .... for a few examples.A new field of investigation includes the living world. It is built through self-assembly of biologicalmacromolecules and inspires the development of biomimetic materials by processes involvingmechanisms of supramolecular organic and inorganic self-assembly.

Topics
  • Elaboration and performing of multiscale structured materials
  • Thermal and rheological characterization of materials
  • Diffusion, microscopy, laser spectroscopy, acoustics for characterization of materials
  • Statistics and numerical analysis applied to the study of materials
