The conference aims to bring together scientists working on various aspects of transport phenomena in complex environments not only in physics but also in biology, traffic etc. We believe that recent techniques developed in each discipline can find application in other apparently different domains. Having knowledge of them provides a universal framework to understand the transportation behaviour of a variety of complex systems on a variety of spatiotemporal scales. Through the interaction of participants from different backgrounds, we expect important stimuli for the research in the field. Prominent researchers from physics and related interdisciplinary fields will participate. This will give a broad overview of the field, its main recent advancements and achievements, methods and applications. The conference deals with a selection of most recent techniques developments and cutting-edge scientific research topics within the general area of transport phenomena in complex environments from colloids up to macroscopic objects s such vehicles. The scientific program of the conference will offer an overview of the latest scientific advances in four major topics:
- Transport and diffusion in inhomogeneous media
- Driven and confined colloidal systems
- Urban traffic: vehicular, pedestrians, metro and bus lines
- Self-propelled particles and active matter
In this conference, we will provide an ample opportunity to exchange points of view, to promote contacts and new collaborations among researchers working on transport phenomena in different inter-disciplinary areas of complex systems. We aim to create a unique forum for debate that can help to provide answers about the novel approaches and methodologies induced by drive-in systems out of equilibrium at all scales. Our participants, including prominent researchers in the areas of transport phenomena in nonequilibrium statistical physics, will be young scientists and postdocs working in the domain of driven systems.
