  • We are currently organizing a Softcomp topical workshop titled "Fracture of soft materials : from soft solids to complex fluids", 15-18 October 2014, website.
    The workshop aims at gathering experimentalists and theoreticians from various fields – soft condensed matter physics, rheology and mechanics, and material science – to explore new frontiers in soft fracture mechanics and to stimulate the coming-of-age of this growing field. It will be a place to discuss a variety of phenomena (brittle/ductile transition, elastic blunting, self-healing cracks, adhesive cracks, yielding in cohesive and repulsive soft solids, rheochaos, effects of large-scale heterogeneity, …) and to make a survey of the state of the art in designing model systems, non-standard experimental techniques and new theoretical developments.
  • We coorganize the CheMISyst "International Practical Summer School on Interfacial and Molecular Systems Chemistry" in Sept. 2014, info
  • In the framework of the Labex CheMISyst, we organize a workshop “Ultrasound and Fluid Interfaces” on May, 22 (2014) at L2C in Montpellier, see the link.
  • In the framework of the Labex NUMEV, we organize a workshop “Water Treatment : Fundamentals and Engineering” on March, 21 (2014) at IEM in Montpellier, see the link.
  • Congratulations to Serge Mora who obtained a professor position at the Laboratoire de Mécanique et Génie Civil de Montpellier (Oct. 2013).
  • The soft matter team is partner of the European initial training network SUPOLEN (Marie-Curie action for the Framework program 7)
    Supramolecular assembly of polymeric structures : a novel route to enhance soft materials properties(1-10-2013 to 30-09-2017) with two Marie-Curie PhD positions ( positions closed)).

Supramolecular polymeric assemblies represent an emerging, promising class of systems with superior versatility compared to their covalent polymeric counterparts. They offer exciting new opportunities for stimuli-responsive structures exhibiting reversible tunable properties, with applications in foodstuff, coatings , cost-efficient processes or biomedical areas.The project is highly interdisciplinary and inter-sectorial, the groups involved are world-leaders in their fields, and the tasks and partners are strategically linked. SUPOLEN reflects European leadership in the field. It offers young researchers a unique training platform with appropriate exposure to a broad range of emerging topics in soft matter and to the industrial sector. It will provide them with the needed tools for addressing relevant scientific and technological challenges.
