Welcome to SLAM!

SLAM is the home of Soft, Living, and Active Matter at IST Austria. Primarily comprised of the Waitukaitis and Goodrich Groups, the interdisciplinary nature of SLAM connects it to the entire IST campus with ties to Mathematical and Physical Sciences, Life Sciences, and Information and System Sciences.

Currently, the primary function of SLAM is the SLAM Seminar, which brings leading international scientists in soft matter and biophysics to IST. The SLAM Seminar is open to everyone, and is intended for an interdisciplinary audience. The seminars are currently held via Zoom, but will transition to a traditional in-person format when it is safe to do so.
