Self-Organization under Confinement

- Rescheduled -

1 - 5 March 2021

Venue: Lorentz Center@Oort

If you are invited or already registered for this workshop, you have received login details by email.

The organizers invited some participants to the online seminar "Self-Organization under Confinement", a teaser for the Lorentz Center Workshop that we will celebrate (hopefully physically) in Leiden, The Netherlands, in the first half of 2022. 

The aim of the 2022 workshop will be to set some common directions across the scales for research on self-organization under confinement: from molecular scales, dominated by Brownian motion, to geophysical scales, dominated by turbulence. We would like to bring together experts and approaches from different fields to expedite progress towards developing better fundamental understanding and further control of self-organizing systems under confinement.

The seminar will serve as an introduction to the workshop and will be celebrated on March 1st (2021) via Zoom. Please find the program below.

During the seminar we will also inform about the 2022 Lorentz Center Workshop. 

You can register already to the seminar in the following link:

Hope to see many of you there,
