This biennial workshop brings together mathematicians, mechanicians and theoretical physicists interested in developing new mathematical models of complex materials, medias and systems. The workshop covers a wide range of topics from nonequilibrium statistical mechanics and dynamical systems to calculus of variations and nonlinear functional analysis. A particular focus of this meeting was on continuum description of biological systems, pattern formation, granular media, plasticity and turbulence.
