Announcement

April 30, 2010 in Goslar, Germany in the Harz mountains

The meeting in Goslar organised by the Center of Interface Science of the universities of Oldenburg, Osnabrück and Bremen, is the second of its kind aiming to bring some of the most outstanding researchers from chemistry and physics together to talk about hot topics in materials science. The main theme will be "Energy". Physicists and chemists of the field are welcome to participate. Female students and researchers are particularly encouraged to send in their abstracts. There will be a program for accompanying children.The deadline for registration is April 7, 2010.

Location

The scientific meeting entitled "From the witches cauldrons of materials science 2010" takes place on April 30, 2010 and is open for all scientists (female and male). There is the possibility to present own research in form of a poster. The meeting will be held in the Harz mountains close to the city of Goslar (www.goslar.de), not far from the Brocken mountain (www.brocken-harz.de), in the old locksmithery of the World Cultural Heritage Rammelsberg
