IOP Topical Research Meeting on Physical Principles of Biological and Active Systems

6 - 7 January 2016, Edinburgh, United Kingdom


Introduction
Biology is a place where two major themes that currently lie at the frontier of condensed matter physics converge: first, the idea that “more is different” – that is, that interactions in complex systems at one scale lead to fundamentally new emergent principles at a larger scale – and second that a proper understanding of nonequilibrium fluctuations is crucial for scientific progress.

This meeting will bring together physicists from around the world to share the intellectual challenges they face in this emerging area.
