New Perspectives in Active Systems on April 24-28, 2023 in Dresden, Germany

Dear Colleagues,


We are organizing the workshop "New Perspectives in Active Systems”, April 24th-28th, 2023 at the Max Planck Institute for the Physics of Complex Systems, in Dresden, Germany.


Topics include: New experimental and engineered active systems - Natural and artificial active systems at all scales - Novel collective states: beyond alignment and phase separation - Nonstandard interactions: nonreciprocal, quorum-based, visual, hierarchical, etc. - New types of activity: beyond self-propulsion - Physics of self-propelled components - Novel theoretical concepts and self-organizing principles - Interaction network effects - Anticipation and trajectory dependence - Non-aligning dynamics - Active-elastic systems - Dense and jammed active systems.


Invited Speakers: Gil Ariel (IL) - Clemens Bechinger (DE) - Debasish Chaudhuri (IN) - Iain Couzin (DE) - Olivier Dauchot (FR) - Erwin Frey (DE) - Daniel Goldman (US) - Silke Henkes (NL) - David L.
