PSL Soft Matter days July 5th July 9th 2021

The first Edition of the PSL Soft and Living Matter days will be held on July 5th to 9th in amphithéatre of Institut Pierre Gilles de Gennes (IPGG, 6 rue Calvin) and will give the opportunity to the PSL community tolearn and discuss about research activities in the field of Soft Matter. The event will be free of charge for PSL participants. 90 people should be allowed on site (Amphi + two rooms in IPGG with retransmitted talks), a visio conference will be organized for the others.

 The PSL Soft and Living Matter days will consist in two events :

- A Summer School on Soft Matter on July 5th to July 7th with 1h30 advanced courses on Soft Matter Physics, Chemistry and biophysics. Short student talks sessions will be organized 

- A workshop on Soft Matter science on July 8th-9th for which anyone can submit a short talk contribution and keynote lectures
