Statistical Mechanics of Soft Matter 2013

SM2 is a local discussion meeting on the theme of Statistical Mechanics of Soft Matter.

The inaugural SM2 was held at RMIT University, City Campus, Melbourne from November 21 - 22, 2013. Peter Daivis was the main organiser, stating in the original announcement:

“Our aim is to fill a gap in the Australian scientific calendar by providing an informal workshop/conference on the fundamentals and applications of equilibrium and non-equilibrium statistical mechanics (particularly computational statistical mechanics) relating to simple and complex liquids, polymers, biological materials and other forms of soft matter.

... We intend to structure the conference as a series of 20 - 30 minute talks, with ample time for discussion, and minimal formal organization.”
