Glassy systems display a complex relaxational dynamics that poses deep fundamental
challenges for experimental, computational and theoretical physicists. A central debate in
this field is what role the characteristic structural disorder of glassy systems plays in the
emergence of their mechanical properties and relaxation patterns.
The workshop brings together leading experimentalists, computational scientists and theorists to build a shared platform to unify disparate languages and approaches. This will allow for the design of concrete experiments and tests that will decide between competing theories and lay the
ground for a more profound understanding of the microscopic origin of the properties of
