Learn ‘Why we cannot make life’ by MAINZ Visiting Professor Bert Meijer in a public lecture (abstract attached). This lecture will be worthwhile for anyone interested in natural sciences – or philosophy - but even an expert may still be able to learn a lot. Bert Meijer is very successful with this public lecture in the Netherlands and will now, for the first time, present his view about the origin of life on earth in Mainz. Be part of this special premiere and meet Bert Meijer to discuss why the creation of life is much more difficult than science fiction suggests!

When: January 25, 6 pm

Where: C 03, Lecture Hall Chemistry, Duesbergweg, JGU Campus (location changed!!!)

No registration needed. Limited number of seats available! ...

08.09.2015 - 11.09.2015: Greenhorn Meeting 2015

The Greenhorn Meeting is an annually held conference on quantum optics and related fields. It provides insight into recent research and is offering a platform to share your experience with other young scientists. The Meeting changes venues every year, coming to the University of Kaiserslautern in 2015 and covering the topics of quantum optics, photonics, and ultracold quantum gases.

The conference aims at young researchers, that have recently started their PhD or are working on their Master's or Dipoloma projects. It gives you the chance to exchange your know how with other scientists in a relaxed atmosphere. You are kindly asked to introduce your own research by presenting a poster and giving a 20 minutes talk. The number of participants is restricted to 40.

The Mainz Materials Simulation Days are a series of discussion meetings focusing on method developments in computational materials science.
Main focus of the 2013 meeting is charge, energy, and heat transport in organic materials.

From August 19th to August 24th, the 24th International Liquid Crystal Conference takes place in Mainz. For more informations please click on the following link.

This symposium will provide an introduction into modern spintronics, covering their physical principles and the materials used for magnetic devices. After this introduction the magnetization dynamics and the mechnisms of magentic switching will be discussed.


Invited Talks at the Symposium will be given by the following speakers:

  • Prof. Dr. Burkhard Hillebrands, TU Kaiserslautern
  • Prof. Dr. Günter Reiss, University of Bielefeld
  • Dr. Georg Woltersdorf, University of Regensburg
  • Prof. Dr. Theo Rasing, Institute for Molecules and Materials Radboud University
    Nijmegen, The Netherlands
  • Dr. Daniel Bürgler, FZ Jülich
  • Dr. Hans Hübl, Walther-Meissner-Institut, München

Additionally there will be four contributed talks.

14.03.2010 - 17.03.2010: Conference: Elopto 2010
ELOPTO 2010 is the 12th conference in this series and held under the special theme "Electrooptics – a fresh look at a traditional field". Please check the website for details.

The registration for the 27th BESSY Users Meeting on December 4/5 and the Workshop "High energy photoemission" December 3, 2008 is now open.
