These proceedings contain new and exciting results on topics such as Dynamics of Pattern Formation, Phase Transitions and Textures of Langmuir Monolayers, Avalanches and Excitations in Granular Materials and Thermodynamic Instabilities in Random Superconductors, Thermodynamics, Equations of State and the Concept of Entropy in States Far from Equilibrium. Continuing with the interest in the behaviour of Complex Fluids the reader will find a discussion on Micellar Growth, Interfacial Properties of Amphiphilic Systems, Electrolytes and Phase Transitions of Interfaces.
