2012 Workshop on the Physics of Bacterial Communities
June 11th - 12th, 2012
Notre Dame Chicago Commons, Chicago, IL

Registration is free, but you must register to attend.  Registration deadline is Wednesday, June 6th.  Please check the listing of registered participants to verify your registration.

The primary focus of the workshop will be on the fundamental understanding of physical mechanisms governing microbial actions, including cellular responses to chemical and physical perturbations, interactions between cells, and coordination of these events over time and spatial scales.

The goal of the Workshop is to bring together physicists, biologists, applied mathematicians, and computational scientists to discuss the latest developments in the field of the physics of bacterial communities, including swarming, quorum sensing, cell signaling, and biofilm formation.
