Description: This programme, planned on the 100th anniversary of On Growth and Form by D’Arcy Thompson, will endeavour to bring various contemporary strands of research related to shape selection, deformations, and self-organisation into focus. The aim is to stimulate new collaborations between mathematicians, biologists, physicists, and other scholars or creators whose work concerns or employs evolution of form, broadly understood. It will thus provide opportunities for cross-pollination of ideas within and across disciplines on various aspects of shape dynamics in diverse contexts and at diverse scales.

Topics include scaling laws in biology, morphogenesis and growth, collective behaviour, propulsion mechanisms, aggregation and self-organisation, folding, stretching, mixing, topological fluid dynamics, and artificial networks. New mathematical approaches, such as shape analysis and computational anatomy, will be emphasized and applied to growth and form of a variety of complex living and inanimate systems. Mathematical tools will also be brought to bear on a whole range of inter-disciplinary problems: from image analysis to medical diagnosis, study of paintings, and mechanical toys.

The four principal areas of the programme are:

Form and deformation in solid and fluid mechanics
Growth, form, and self-organisation in living systems
Shape analysis and computational anatomy
Form in art, toys, and games
