The inaugural Disordered Materials 2019 conference is to bring together experts from various scientific communities to advance the field of disorder in material science.
The study and exploitation of disorder is a vital research area in the broader field of material science. Structural and compositional randomness is ubiquitous in nature, and is often key tool for specific purposes, as mimicry or colouring. The benefits of disorder are a useful guide in engineering, and in visionary developments of novel advanced materials with unexpected and surprising properties. The general subject of disorder is rapidly emerging into an area of interdisciplinary scientific interest, which is, however, still in its infancy.

The inaugural Disordered Materials 2019 conference will have a special focus on disordered materials in optics and photonics. It is by now accepted that optical media do not necessarily have to be regular. Quite in contrast, photonic materials with deliberately introduced disorder in their respective geometries and compositions show interesting novel and tuneable unforeseen properties. These aspects shall be showcased at the conference.
Contributions from the fields of

- theoretical physics
- computational physics
- applied physics
- theoretical biology
- experimental biology
- optics and photonics

are envisioned to be combined. The development of novel approaches and design routes to realise tailored disorder in materials will be one of the main topics of this conference.

The conference will be chaired by Prof. Dr. Cordt Zollfrank, Technische Universität München, (Germany)
