There is a fairly large community of researchers in India working on both experimental and theoretical aspects of what has now come to be known as Soft Matter, and on networks that are relevant to biology. This community comprises chemical engineers, electrical engineers, biologists, physicists, and applied mathematicians. There is considerable enthusiasm and motivation for holding such an inter-disciplinary meeting, based on our experience with some recent meetings on this theme held elsewhere. We feel that it is now both appropriate and timely to continue this inter-disciplinary trend with a topical conference with IIT Madras as the venue. Among the topics of current research interest that we propose to include in the conference are membranes, polymers, liquid crystals, surfactant systems, cell biophysics, electrostatic effects in biological systems and soft matter, neural networks, ecological networks and traffic models.

The weather in Chennai during February is mostly pleasant, with warm-dry days and cool nights. The average maximum temperature during this time of the year usually hovers around 30 degrees celsius and the minimum being around 20 degrees celsius.
