Interface physics is one of the most challenging fields of research [in Hard and Soft Matter] due to its importance in the current miniaturization trend.

At ever smaller scales the surface to volume ratio becomes increasingly large and system frontiers play a crucial role. This workshop aims to bring experimentalists and theorists together in order to discuss about three relevant disciplines at small scales, such as microfluidics, biomembranes and nanostructures, and on the direct interplay among them.
