The deadline for registration and abstract submission has been extended until September 20th! Visit our webpage for more information.
The Berni J. Alder prize awarded by CECAM every three years goes to GRK PI Kurt Kremer for "exceptional contributions to the microscopic simulation of polymers, setting the standards for using numerical simulation to probe conceptual issues in polymer physics and establishing it as an indispensable tool in materials science" (read more). Congratulations!
GRK PI Pol Besenius and Mercator fellow Thomas Hermans have been awarded the prestigious „Forcheurs Jean-Marie Lehn” prize in 2022. The price goes to promising cooperations of young German-French researchers. Congratulations!
Oliver Stach and Anastasios Sourpis were elected in January as the new student speakers for 2022. We are looking forward to working together!
We extend special thanks to Maren Schweitzer and Maximilian Hielscher, who did a great job as speakers for the period 2020-2021.
SupraChem 2022 will be held in Mainz on 3–5 July 2022, and will take place on the premises of the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research and the Johannes Gutenberg University campus. This national meeting will be the 6th conference of this biannual series that assembles all supramolecular chemists and scientists from related fields for two days. We would like to invite you to visit the conference homepage (www.suprachem2022.de) which provides regular updates about invited Keynote Lectures as well as detailed information about the technical and social program. We expect to open and announce the call for abstract submission in October.
The students of the Research Training Group have been organizing a retreat this year in Heidelberg from September 20th to 22nd. The meeting has taken place at the NH Hotel Heidelberg.
Life-like emergent behavior in complex molecules and ensembles
This global virtual symposium will bring together leading scientists in the field of systems chemistry from US, Europe, Asia and Australia to present interactive talks with moderated discussion sessions and a Twitter-based poster session running throughout the event.
This interdisciplinary symposium will cover diverse aspects of the emerging field of systems chemistry, covering topics such as:
- Dynamic Information of Molecular Assemblies
- Origins and Synthesis of Life
- Emergent Behaviors: From Catalysts to Motility
- Active and Adaptive Materials Biological Networks
- Systems Chemistry and the Coronavirus Crisis
The lectures "Introduction to Soft Matter" will take place during the winter semester 2020/21 every Thursday starting at 10:15am
DFG to sponsor a new Research Training Group in physics and chemistry. Cooperation between Mainz University, TU Darmstadt, and the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research. Read the full press release.
