NECD12 - International Conference of GRK 1558
NonEquilibrium Collective Dynamics:
Bridging the Gap between Hard and Soft Materials
An international conference of the research training group GRK1558
October 1-4, 2012
Collective dynamics under nonequilibrium conditions is ubiquitous in natural processes and technology, and of great current interest in experimental research as well as theoretical modeling. Different approaches to study nonequilibrium collective dynamics have been developed in different disciplines, in particular in hard and soft condensed matter and biological physics. The conference NECD12 aims at bringing together specialists in these fields and to stimulate an intensive exchange of methods and ideas among them.
We have invited internationally recognized scientists which will report on their recent research on nonequilibrium collective dynamics or provide a more general view on the subject. The conference also invites contributions related to its topics mainly presented during a poster session. We will also select some of them as contributed talks.
NECD12 is organized by the research training group GRK1558, which studies nonequilibrium collective dynamics in hard and soft condensed matter as well as in biological systems. Our research concentrates on
(i) nonlinear transport and quantum optics in semiconductors,
(ii) collective dynamics in dispersions of colloidal particles and
(iii) self-organization and nonlinear waves in active media.
