Soft Matter Day 2018
The third Soft Matter Day, organized by the Peter Debye Institute for Soft Matter Physics, will take place on 6 July 2018 at the Theoretical Lecture Hall of the Faculty of Physics and Earth Sciences, Linnéstr. 5, Leipzig. It aims at stimulating scientific exchange and interactions among the groups of the institute and the Leipzig groups that do related work in this field.
