[BEAM] ATM: How we can model and use symmetry (30.-31.3.2022)

After some motivation and first examples, we look at groups systematically and explore the mathematical language to study them. There will be exercises to work on and we discuss solutions (even if incomplete). One of the goals is to understand the symmetry of regular n-gons and to really get in touch with mathematical reasoning. And of course we want to discuss where symmetry might play a role in your work!

lecturer: Prof. Rebecca Waldecke

Insights behind the CV: Rebecca Waldecker (15.10.2021, 12.30-14.00)

You are warmly invited to join the informal career talks by Rebecca Waldecker! Successful scientists share their experiences as a woman in natural science and tell the story behind their official CV. After the talk there will be enough time for informal discussion and networking.

Target audience are (female) natural scientists from our university.

Effective Visual Communication of Science (November 25-26, 2021)

You will learn to effectively communicate your own scientific ideas and results by applying best visual communication practices to your research communication. You will understand the principles and useful design approaches used by experts. You will get actionable advice and feedback on your own pre-submitted materials. It is an immersive webinar, structured, easy to follow, memorable, useful and fun.

Date: November 25 (9.00-16.30) + November 26 (9.00-13.30)
Location: Online workhop via zoom
Group size: 20

Introduction to Python (October 27-28, 2021)

In recent years Python has become more and more popular. According to the Tiobe Index it is about to overtake Java and to be the number two in the list of the most important programming language in the world. In the fields of numerical programming and Machine Learning, Python is the leader. It is not just easier to learn than other languages but programs in Python can also be faster written and are characterized by their easy readability. One of the reasons for this are the user-friendly data structures and the easy to grasp syntax.

Date: October 27+28, 2021 (9.00-17.00)
Location: Online workhop via zoom
Group size: 12 (joint workshop with Leibniz Institute for Plant Biochemistry)

Effective Presentation (January 13 – 14, 2022)

Science is mostly production of high quality data. However, presentation of data is arguably of similar importance: after generation of results, you want to convey the information to your fellow scientists, be it in the form of talks and posters at conferences or in manuscript for great publications. Presenting for the lay public is of outstanding importance not only to get understood but to get a job.

Workshop on Data Visualization (November 2, 2021)

Scientific figures transport most of the information and arguments in presentations, posters as well as research articles. We will discuss the general requirements on scientific figures, cover the basics on good graphic design and provide practical guidelines for compelling plots.

date: November 2, 2021
time: 15.00-17.30
lecturer: Dr. Kerstin Blank (Max Planck Institute of Colloids and Interfaces)
