April 29 - 30, 2017 in Goslar, Germany in the Harz mountains

The scientific meeting "From the witches cauldrons in materials science 2017" takes place on April 29 and 30, 2017. We were again able to win excellent female scientists as speakers for the conference. The meeting is held jointly with SFB 1083 "Structure and Dynamics of Internal Interfaces".

There is the possibility to present personal research in form of a poster. The deadline for registration and contributions is April 17, 2017.


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

Furthermore, we would like to point out our child day care program at the museum mine Rammelsberg on April 30, 2017.
