An interdisciplinary discussion meeting on patterns and geometry, and their role in biological and synthetic microstructured materials and tissue. We invite contributions from biology, chemistry, materials science, mathematics, physics and related fields addressing the genesis, properties and function of complex nano-scale geometries, as well as underlying geometric and topological concepts for the study of complex structure and shape.

The conference is hosted by the Technical University of Berlin at the Straße des 17. Juni that leads right up to the famous Brandenburg Gate, next to Reichstag, the parliament of Germany. Museum Island, Berliner Philharmonie, Opera Houses, Checkpoint Charlie, Berlin Television Tower and other famous sites are within a few kilometers walking distance and are easily accessible via public transport that connects all of inner Berlin — from vibrant Prenzlauer Berg to Gendarmenmarkt at the heart of Berlin.

All lectures and the poster session will take place at the Institute of Mathematics, Straße des 17. Juni 136.

The lecture hall MA 005 features all the usual video/audio equipment as well as some day-light.
