International Soft Matter Conference 2007

Eurogress Aachen, Germany

1 - 4 October 2007




This conference will bring together students and scientists interested in soft matter systems such as polymers, colloids, surfactants, membranes, biomaterials and their composites. Soft Matter is characterized by multi component mixtures, large ranges of length and time scales and many interacting degrees of freedom, leading to complex structures, phase behaviour and dynamics. This implies high sensitivity to external fields and ubiquitous and significant non-equilibrium phenomena.

The result of the vote for the location of the next International Soft Matter Conference has been announced during the Conference Dinner; it will be held in


We are looking forward to seeing you again in Granada in three years, or maybe at the
Juelich Soft Matter Days 2008
in Bonn next November.
