The workshop entitled ¨Biology for Physics: is there new physics in living matter?¨iwill take place in Barcelona, Spain, from 15-18 January 2017. The workshop is organised under the auspices of the Division of Physics for Life Sciences from the European Physical Society [EPS], and will be held at the Barcelona Biomedical Research Park [PRBB].

Topics of the conference will include:

Physical principles of mechanochemical networks: new challenges for soft matter physics
•    Systems biology and self-organization: from active matter to cells and tissues
•    Stochastic thermodynamics: from single molecules to complex machinery
•    Physics of biological evolution: from the second law to the selection of structures

Detailed information can be found on the website of the conference.

Editorial – BREXIT: What’s next?

What a summer! After the Brexit referendum of June 23 the international events rolled in at an incredible pace: killing of police officers on July 7 in Dallas (TX-USA) followed by another one in Baton Rouge (LA_USA) on July 17 (without mentioning Orlando (FL-USA) mass shooting a month before), the truck attack in Nice, FR on July 14, the Turkish military coup on July 15, etc., and this is only a small excerpt of what has happened in that month. Not easy to write an editorial under such an avalanche of negative events, reported and amplified over the normal and social media. Under such circumstances it looks to me that the exit of the United Kingdom from the European Union was a long time ago. This is certainly the consequence of all the news that we collect worldwide and integrate over a short period of time. Even the European Football championships already long gone.
