Particles deposited as films, embedded in matrices, aligned in fibers, and all other particle-based materials are covered by this symposium. A strong focus will be on material properties that can be achieved using particles and would be hard to obtain using other approaches. Anisotropic, complex particles, and supraparticles that bring functionality to materials are of particular interest. The goal is to bring together scientists from different communities that all share the goal of creating functionality in materials using particles.Contributions from researchers at all levels are highly appreciated. Slots for oral contributions will be distributed on the basis of the originality of the research, the level of results indicated in the abstract, and the relevance for the field of particle-based materials.


  • Preparation of functional materials using nanoparticles
  • Assembly, arrangement, alignment and patterning of particles in films and bulk materials
  • Anisotropic particles and supraparticles and their use in materials
  • Particle synthesis for materials via gas phase, liquid dispersion, or in situ formation

Homepage Cell PhysicsThe conference “Cell Physics 2017” will take place at the Saarland University in Saarbrücken, Germany, 11.-13.10.2017. It is organized and financed by the Collaborative Research Center SFB 1027 “Physical modeling of non-equilibrium processes in biological systems”. It is intended to be an interdisciplinary platform for scientific exchange between participants from cell biology and biophysics, both represented in roughly equal numbers, and focuses centrally on theoretical concepts in conjunction with cell biological experiments. Topics include:
  • Cell Mechanics and Adhesion
  • Cytoskeleton Dynamics
  • Membrane Proteins
  • Biofilm Formation
  • Tissue Growth
  • Physics of Cancer
The official conference will start Wednesday, 11.10.2017 at 9am, and finishes Friday afternoon, 13.10.2017. It consists of invited talks, contributed oral presentations and poster sessions. A pre-conference workshop for the members of the SFB 1027 will take place on Tuesday, 10.10.2017. All participants of the Cell Physics conference are cordially invited to join this pre-conference event comprising oral presentations and many posters of the SFB 1027.
