Abstract: Since the dawn of modern science, physics has developed the measurement tools for quantitative inquiry, and provided mathematical laws to describe and understand the world around us. In turn, physical methods have traditionally found fruitful applications in chemistry and biology. In the current century, it is not exaggerated to say that biology has been the fastest developing science, but it is also not less true that physics and chemistry contributions have been essential to make biology the quantitative science it is nowadays. However, despite all this progress, living matter has astonishing features that, when confronted to those of inanimate matter, make physicists suspect that they are missing something in their current understanding of the living. This leads us to pose the question: is there new physics in living matter? The workshop aims to bring about 25 prominent scientists who have been working over the past years on several biologically motivated problems, have made outstanding contributions in their respective fields and for whom physics is an everyday source of inspiration to better understand biology. In this regard this is not a standard workshop where the latest scientific results on a well-defined topic are presented. Rather it is a forum where recent scientific results are presented but dressed in a way to convey the audience with personal views on the aforementioned questions and to trigger discussion and reflection on it. In addition to the invited talks the workshop will have lot of time devoted for poster exhibitions by young researchers to promote exchanges and interaction between them and our invited speakers.
