This presentation focuses on the structure and energetics of line defects in 2D materials and their impact on microstructures. We employ several approaches in which local bonding information is determined using first principles methods, continuum methods are employed to describing in-plane strain and bending, and microstructures are described with phase field methods and/or Peierls-Nabarro models.

In this talk I shall describe two kinds of soft matter system in which
the interfacial behaviour is of interest. Firstly, the adsorption of
polymers and peptides on solid surfaces is of growing interest because
of the possible applications in biotechnology. We have recently improved
a Monte Carlo simulation method for studying lattice polymers near to
surfaces, and I shall present some recent results. Secondly, I shall
discuss the simulation of confined liquid crystals, with special
