We would kindly invite you to attend "2015 Soft Matter Summer School: Polymers in Biology"  organized by KIAS (Korea Institute of Advanced Study), UNIST (Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology) and ICMR (International Center for Materials Research, UCSB), which will be held in KIAS (Seoul, South Korea) from June 21 to July 3, 2015.

Discoveries in polymer physics and chemistry impact diverse phenomena in biology. Biopolymers, special forms of polymers realized through evolution, can adopt three-dimensional native structures and reshape their conformations in response to changes in external conditions. The basic static and dynamic features of single- and many- polymer systems are central for the understanding of proteins, nucleic acids, polysaccharides, and their complexes. The overall aim of this summer school is to bring together polymer experts from diverse disciplines whose works are linked to polymer science and biology in order to promote the basic science underlying biological materials and living organisms. 
The foci of the School will be on the: (1) properties of a  single polymer (statics and dynamics) and its response to environmental changes; (2) collective behavior of polymers. More specifically, the following topic will be covered: 
1. Basic polymer theories and simulations. 
2. Mechanics of nucleic acids. 
3. From DNA to higher order complexes and the chromosome.  
3. Protein folding. 
4. Intrinsically disordered proteins 
5. Effects of crowded environment on biopolymers.
6. Cytoskeletal filaments
7. Glycomaterials. 
8. Active materials.  
It will begin with two-day pre-school workshop, in which all the participants will have a chance to present their current work and be followed by the body of the school. The 12 invited speakers will each deliver a 5-hour mini-course on polymer science and their applications to biology.  The initial few hours of each mini-course will be devoted to the fundamental, textbook level introduction to basic concepts.

Please note that the registration is limited to ~60 participants and its deadline is on May 1, 2015.
