Introduction to Calorimetry (June 27-28, 2018)

Aims

This module addresses doctoral students in chemistry, physics, biophysics, and related fields without much prior knowledge or experience in calorimetry. It introduces the basic theoretical and technical concepts necessary for an understanding of calorimetry in general and the application to polymer science in special.

Contents

Each day of the two-day program starts with a series of lectures in the morning covering the theoretical knowledge by basic lectures and the discussion of applications and problems. It is followed by hands-on experiments on typical polymer samples and demonstrations of the different calorimeter devices during the afternoon.

Time and Self-Management – follow up (June 26, 2018)

Time-management is not something just theoretical: understanding the principles it is essential but the application to day by day life is what really matters. Therefore, this course is divided in two workshops separated by roughly a month. During the time in between you have the opportunity to try the techniques and principles you learned in the first workshop. In same cases it is just about observing your processes and behaviors with a new understanding. During the second workshop we will build upon your observations and experiences: Continue reading “Time and Self-Management – follow up (June 26, 2018)”

Soft Matter Day at UL (July 6, 2018)

Soft Matter Day 2018

The third Soft Matter Day, organized by the Peter Debye Institute for Soft Matter Physics, will take place on 6 July 2018 at the Theoretical Lecture Hall of the Faculty of Physics and Earth Sciences, Linnéstr. 5, Leipzig. It aims at stimulating scientific exchange and interactions among the groups of the institute and the Leipzig groups that do related work in this field.
