Artificial Polymers, Micro-Structured Systems and Living Matter is a 2 half-days topical meeting, which has been initiated by the division "Physique et Vivant" of the Société Française de Physique (SFP) and the Groupe Français des Polymères (GFP). The meeting aims at stimulating interactions between physicists and chemists working in polymer sciences and those working on biology-related aspects with a focus on living or polymer micros-structured systems. It is opened to PhD students, post-doctoral fellows and senior scientists.

The program contains a selection of presentations describing studies on artificial tissues, active or functional materials as well as functional systems. A poster session is included in the program to favor exchanges between scientists of the various fields.
