WiNS Summer School 2020

Light, matter, and life: Why do we see what we see and how do we understand it?

12-15 June 2020, Blossin, Brandenburg

 

Scope of the workshop

Light-matter interaction is responsible for some of the most appealing effects in the physics of materials, which are also essential for most opto-electronic applications pervading our everyday life. From a fundamental point of view, light-matter interaction is a valuable source of information to understand the microscopic properties of materials on a quantum-mechanical level.

We aim to bring together a selected and yet representative number of scientists working at the forefront of research on light-matter interaction in inorganic, organic, and bio-materials. During the four-day workshop under the direction of Prof. Caterina Cocchi (Dept. of Physics/ IRIS/ CRC 951) and Dr. Zsuzsanna Heiner (Dept. of Chemistry/ SALSA), a number of invited speakers with different background will provide their insight on this exciting research topic exchanging ideas with all participants, also through hands-on and group activities. A paramount scope of this event is to establish and strengthen networks of female scientists at any level of career. Topics related to career strategies and personal development will be also part of the program, under the coordination of a professional coach.

 

Confirmed speakers:

Prof. Dr. Klara Hernadi, University of Szeged, Department of Chemistry, Hungary

Dr. Antonietta De Sio, Physics Department, Carl von Ossietzky Universität Oldenburg, Germany

Dr. Krisztina Nagy, Biological Research Centre, Institute of Biophysics, Hungary

Dr. Deborah Prezzi, CNR Istituto Nanoscienze, Modena, Italy

Dr. Claudia Rödl, Physics Department, Friedrich-Schiller Universität Jena, Germany

 

Target group

Female scientists of any nationality and level of career, from the 4th semester of study up to group leaders, who are active in physics, chemistry, nano- and materials science, as well as biological disciplines.

 

Registration costs

All local costs will be covered by the organization. Travel costs for regular participants from outside Berlin will be reimbursed in full or in part depending on the available funds.
