Kármán Conference: From Molecular Materials to Complex Adaptive Molecular Systems

  DWI – Leibniz Institute for Interactive Materials, RWTH Aachen University and the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems jointly organized the Kármán Conference for a limited number of 130 participants. The main topic of the conference will be ‘From Molecular Materials to Complex Adaptive Molecular Systems‘ and the focus will be on the transition from understanding and predicting properties towards the rational design of material systems that qualify for being complex and adaptive. These are not simple materials, but systems that possess properties, which so far are only known for living organisms or man-controlled machines like robots.

We believe it is very timely to discuss together with physicists, chemists and also interested researchers from life science the state of the art and the particular challenges given by the gap between assembly of molecules to materials and developing molecular systems that can actively interact with feedback mechanisms and have the ability to perform work. We cordially invite you to submit abstracts for poster presentations.

HAP Workshop 2014

The RWTH Aachen University organizes with the Helmholtz Alliance for Astroparticle Physics (HAP) a workshop on Detector Design and Technology for Next Generation Neutrino Telescopes.

From December 8th to December 10th 2014 the workshop takes place at the RWTH Guesthouse at Königshügel with 80 German and international scientists.

Bringing together the German and international astroparticle community for a coherent effort towards next generation Neutrino Telescopes is the superior aim of this meeting.
