Interfaces. Let's further explore their chemistry and physics and their many applications in the broad field of Analytical Sciences in a new edition of a successful conference that is organized by junior researchers in HU! Learn with us more about nanomaterials, reaction spaces and biosensors, and the different ways to understand such systems through unique characterization experiments, theory, and synthesis!


On September 11-13, 2024, we will discuss these and other topics, as well as your own research publicly with invited guests, including:


Eric Bakker (University of Geneva, Switzerland)

Claire Donnelly (MPI for Chemical Physics of Solids, Dresden, Germany)

Jana Kalbáčová Vejpravová (Charles University Prague, Czechia)

Bettina Keller (Free University of Berlin, Germany)

Michael Hope (University of Warwick, UK)

Ingo Manke (Helmholtz Zentrum Berlin, Germany)

Liana C. Silva (University of Lisbon, Portugal)

Miriam Unterlass (University of Constance, Germany)

Lisa Vaccari (Elettra Synchrotron, Trieste, Italy)


Join us, and together with the SALSA Fellows identify new /inter/faces of research fields, disciplines, institutions, and people! Register with a poster and a flash talk -you may win an award!- and spend an off-site event at "Haus für Poesie" to find out whether there may be an interface of science and poetry!
