April 29 - 30, 2018 in Goslar, Germany in the Harz mountains

The scientific meeting "From the witches cauldrons in materials science 2018" takes place on April 29 and 30, 2018. We were again able to win excellent female scientists as speakers for the conference. The meeting is held jointly with the Graduate Research School 2226 "Chemical Bond Activation" (Oldenburg) and is also supported by the SFB 1083 "Structure and Dynamics of Internal Interfaces" (Marburg).

There is the possibility to present personal research in form of a poster. The deadline for registration and contributions is April 1, 2018.


The meeting will be held in the Harz mountains in the city of Goslar (www.goslar.de), not far from the Brocken mountain (www.brocken-harz.de), in the Mönchehaus Museum.
