COVID-19: There are still large uncertainties in the development of this epidemy, and for the moment, the school is maintained as planned. Student selection will be made. If travel restrictions will be still be in place in September, the school will be postponed.  We will keep you up to date as soon as the situation evolves.


Soft matter pervades into daily life under several forms: biological matter, foams, food products, ink, tires, and many others. In contrast to their very different appearance, all these systems are governed by the same, fundamental physical laws. Aim of the school is providing an overview of the forces governing the behavior of soft matter systems and introducing the most relevant techniques to probe such interactions.
The school proposes frontal lectures for doctoral students working in the field of soft matter given by recognized experts from all over Europe. Poster sessions will be opened for discussion on research topic and experimental results between students and invited lecturers. An open exchange session is foreseen where speakers and students meet for informal discussions in small groups.


We have a limited amount of places, application including a short description of research activity and a CV should be sent to softmatter2020@ill.fr before 10 April 2020.

The organising committee will examine your application and inform you in May 2020.
