Soft Matter Day and Peter Debye Lecture on July 5, 2019

On July 5, 2019, the "Soft Matter Day", organized by the Peter Debye Institute for Soft Matter Physics at the Faculty of Physics and Earth Sciences, will take place for the fourth time. It represents an important platform of scientific exchange in the field of physics of soft and biological matter between the working groups of the institute, the Faculty of Physics and Earth Sciences, working groups of other faculties and non-university institutions. This year, for the first time, the "Peter Debye Lecture" will be held, with which every 2 years external junior researchers with outstanding scientific contributions in the field of soft matter physics or biophysics will be honored.

The Soft Matter Day, which takes place at the Lecture Hall for Theoretical Physics of the Faculty of Physics and Earth Sciences at Linnéstraße 5, was initiated in the year 2016 by working groups of the institute. Most of the up to 100 participants are junior scientists. They will present their research topics in a talk or during the poster sessions.

The first "Peter Debye Lecture" will be held by Dr. Elisabeth Fischer-Friedrich. She will talk about the "Time-dependent mechanics of biopolymer materials – from protein condensates to the actin cytoskeleton". Ms. Dr. Fischer-Friedrich is a group leader at the Biotechnology Center (BIOTEC) of the TU Dresden.

The "Soft Matter Day" is financially supported by the Collaborative Research Center Transregio "Polymers Under Multiple Constraints: Restricted and Controlled Molecular Order and Mobility" of the Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg together with our University and other non-university partners (Leibniz Institute of Surface Modification Leipzig, Fraunhofer Institute for Mechanics of Materials Halle), which will start into its third funding period in July 2019.

Participants can register via the website until June 21, 2019.
