If the situation of the corona pandemic allows at the time of this event, it will be held as a hybrid seminar, enabling the attendees either to participate on site or online. Otherwise it will be held as an online-only seminar (via the platform MeetAnyway). Please apply in any case, if you are interested in participating.

For all participants of this seminar, except invited speakers, it is required to apply for admittance. Therefore, please express your interest in participating using the application form below. As part of their efforts to create equal opportunities the Wilhelm and Else Heraeus-Foundation and the organizers encourage in particular applications of women. 

For all participants, complimentary on-site and full-board accommodation is provided by the Wilhelm and Else Heraeus-Foundation, and there is no conference fee.

Please briefly outline your motivation to participate. We would like to encourage all participants, especially postdoctoral researchers, PhD students, and graduate students to present a poster and, thus, to submit an abstract. Among all submissions, the scientific organizers will select a few contributions for short talks. All other contributions will be presented as posters. The best posters will be awarded with a Poster Prize (funded by the Wilhelm and Else Heraeus-Foundation).

Application deadline is 12 December 2021.

The admittance will be confirmed (or declined) by the Foundation right after this deadline at the latest.
