Dear all,

We would like to invite you to the online seminar "Self-Organization under
Confinement", a teaser for the Lorentz Center Workshop that we will
celebrate (hopefully physically) in Leiden, The Netherlands, in the first
half of 2022.

The idea of the seminar is to introduce the topic through 3 of our key
speakers, representing some of the most extreme physical scales that will
be treated in our workshop in 2022. We will also like to invite you to a
private open discussion, after the seminar on the upcoming March 1st, on
our expectations for the 2022 workshop, deliverables, and suggestions for a
potential joint publication or large collaboration grants. This would help
us to prepare for the workshop better and make it more efficient.

The seminar will serve as an introduction to the workshop and will be
celebrated on March 1st (2021) via Zoom, this is the program:

All times are Central European Time (Madrid, Paris, Amsterdam, Berlin)

14:30 CET : Cécile Sykes
Département de Physique, Ecole Normale Supérieure, Paris, France
"Self-organisation of the nucleus-actin link during confined cell
 migration: how to infer cell aggressiveness"

15:15 CET : Iker Zuriguel
Granular Matter Lab, Departamento de Física y Matemática Aplicada.
Universidad de Navarra. Pamplona, Spain.
"Pedestrian motion in confined geometries"

16:00 CET : Itai Cohen
Physics Department, Cornell University, Ithaca, NY, USA.
"Electronically Integrated Self-Assembling Microscopic Robots"

During the seminar we will also inform about the 2022 Lorentz Center

You can register already to the seminar in the following link:

Hope to see many of you there,
