Joint IMPRS Workshop: Dresden, April 3-7, 2017

The workshop is a joint initiative of four International Max Planck Research Schools (IMPRS):

The research focus of the four schools has an overlap in the fields of condensed matter and quantum technology. At the same time, the involved research groups approach the fields from different angles and with different emphasis.

The main aim of the workshop is to bring together PhD students of the four research schools. In addition to talks covering various research topics within the theme of the workshop, ample time will be provided for direct interaction between all participants, creating a stimulating environment for discussions.

The program comprises invited talks, as well as several presentations by PhD students and a poster session. Read more.
