It is common knowledge that the crystalline state represents periodically ordered material. While liquids and gases are general representatives of disordered materials, the disorder can exist in crystalline materials in a variety of ways, even to the point that it can be said that at any finite temperature, all materials are disordered. Another useful way of characterizing materials is their elastic response. Systems that exhibit large responses to small stimuli are called soft matter. Bringing a general understanding of these seemingly different categories to get a holistic link between correlated disorder and the material property is attractive and challenging in condensed matter science.

The 2-day event is devoted to experimental and theoretical studies on various soft and disordered systems, including liquid crystals, polymers, colloids, low-dimensional systems, nano-soft composites, and bio-related materials. The conference provides the platform for bringing together researchers from these diverse fields and gives an opportunity to forge collaborations.

Wiley is conducting a special collection of research articles (communications or full papers) and/or high-quality reviews from this conference for its journals, ChemPhysChem and ChemistrySelect.
