The 3rd Asia-Pacific Regional Workshop for Complex Non-Equilibrium Systems is designed to provide a broad perspective on the contemporary researches in soft matter science, nonequilibrium systems, and statistical physics for researchers in Asia-Pacific area. The first workshop was held in 2006 at National Central University Taiwan organized by P. Y. Lai and the second was held in 2011 at Chinese University of Hong Kong organized by K-Q Xia dn P. Y. Lai. In this year, the workshopl is hosted and sponsored by IBS-CSLM (Korea Institute of Basic Science - Center for Soft and Living Matter, UNIST) at Ulsan Korea.
