Shape Up 2015 : Exercises in Materials Geometry and Topology


We’re still accepting abstracts for what shapes up to be an exciting international conference  on real-world materials, dead and alive, with complex spatial microstructures. An interdisciplinary discussion meeting on patterns and geometry, and their role in biological and synthetic microstructured materials and tissue. We invite contributions from biology, chemistry, materials science, mathematics, physics and related fields addressing the genesis, properties and function of complex nano-scale geometries, as well as underlying geometric and topological concepts for the study of complex structure and shape. More information can be found on See you in Berlin!
