Abstract

To understand several biological processes and realize new applications enabled by such soft active materials, substantial progress must be made in theoretical modeling, computational tools, and engineering design. This poses challenges for everyone involved in this interdisciplinary area, including biologists, mathematicians, physicists, computer scientists, and engineers. In order to make their contributions understandable and useful for the entire field, researchers from different backgrounds must come together and learn from each other. This workshop will bring together researchers from various disciplines to foster discussions, collaborations, and advances in all aspects of soft active materials.
