We are pleased to announce that registration is open for the Workshop Self-Organization in Active Matter: from Colloids to Cells to be held October 1-4, 2018, at the Ettore Majorana Centre for Scientific Culture in Erice, Italy.
The Workshop will bring together established and junior researchers to discuss the latest development in experiments and theory of self-organization in active systems. Topics covered will include active colloids, microswimmers, active liquid crystals, bacterial suspensions and biofilms, subcellular structures, and tissues. We will have a number of invited talks by distinguished speakers that have made important contributions to the field of active matter. There will also be opportunities for contributed presentations to be selected from submissions and for poster presentations.
The venue is the The Ettore Majorana Centre for Scientific Culture in the historic town of Erice, Sicily. Erice is located on top of Mount Erice, at around 750 metres (2,460 ft) above sea level, overlooking the city of Trapani and the Aegadian Islands on Sicily’s north-western coast. A cable car joins the upper and lower parts of the town. Erice is a wonderfully preserved walled Mediaeval town offering the most breathtaking views and a palpable sense of history.

The fee of 120 Euro/night covers all local expenses (ground transportation, accommodation, meals, coffee breaks, excursion, and social dinner).
Limited funds are available to support the participation of junior scientists or scientists from developing countries.
We hope to see you in Erice in October.
