Official announcement

[in conjunction with IMPRS-STNS] Good scientific practice seminar (January 23, 2019)

This seminar presents the basic principles and rules of good scientific practice. Fundamentals of scientific work, i.e. professional standards and documentation of results, are discussed. Further topics are handling of primary data (backup and storing) and scientific publications (authorship and scam journals). Also management of research data, following the FAIR principles is briefly introduced. Recent examples of scientific misconduct illustrate the official procedures at the institutions and possible consequences. The rules apply worldwide and for all subjects and every researcher at Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg and the Max Planck Institute of Microstructure Physics has to comply with these rules.

Diffusion Fundamentals VIII (DF8) in Erlangen (September 1-5, 2019)

The international conference “Diffusion Fundamentals VIII” will take place in Erlangen, Germany, from 1st to 5th September 2019 and is organized by the Institute of Advanced Optical Technologies – Thermophysical Properties (AOT-TP).

As a motto of the conference, the subtitle “Diffusion Phenomena Moving People” should point out that  …

  • … dedicated scientists from many different fields pursue their diffusion-related research with unlimited passion,
  • … not only the random movement of molecules, but also of, e.g., particles, words, information, and people can be described by diffusive transport, and
  • … experts from many diffusion-related research areas are hopefully motivated to travel to Erlangen for the next issue of the fruitful Diffusion Fundamentals conference series.
