This workshop was due to be held in May 2020 but was postponed due to the coronovirus outbreak. If you submitted an abstract for the May event, we will contact you to confirm if you wish to submit the abstract for the 2021 workshop.
A wide variety of physical properties of living systems arise from interplay between activity and growth. These include pattern formation in bacterial colonies, ordering in actin networks and the emergence of resistance in tumours.
The workshop's main goal is to gather together researchers working on different systems and using different techniques (theory, simulations, and experiments). We hope that the meeting will help to identify universal characteristics of growing active matter and reveal unifying general principles (if they exist).
