7-11 May 2018, San Sebastián – Spain
Organized by: Materials Physics Center (CFM), joint center of the Spanish Research Council (CSIC) and the University of the Basque Country (UPV/EHU)
The course is open to graduate students and researchers in Physics, Chemistry, Materials Science or Biology.
The laboratory course will consist of lectures and experimental sessions. The lectures will include an introduction to polarization theory, dielectric materials and instrumentation. Selected experiments on soft-matter and polymers will be conducted and analyzed by the participants. Furthermore, there will be an Invited Tutorial on a specific topic involving intensively dielectric relaxation experiments.
It is the aim of the course to introduce participants into the dielectric relaxation experimental techniques and its applications in soft-condensed matter research.
The conference is designed by and for students and young researchers in the natural sciences and mathematics. Its mission is to increase the visibility of female role models, introduce you to a variety of career options, and give you a dedicated time for networking and establishing useful contacts.
Prof. Dr. Katharina Landfester will talk about the changes she instilled within her workplace as the director of Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research, creating gender-equal place for all of her employees and improving their work-life balance.

This workshop addresses doctoral students in chemistry, physics, biophysics, and related fields in the iRTG “Polymers: random coils and beyond”. The doctoral students will introduce the basic theoretical and technical concepts necessary for an understanding of projects within the iRTG. The iRTG workshop focuses on experimental and theoretical techniques to study synthetic polymer and biopolymer systems. Continue reading “3rd iRTG Workshop (November 20-21, 2017)”
The next iRTG meeting will take place on September 20, 2017. We will meet at Leucorea in Wittenberg at 1.30pm.
The following topics will be presented and discussed:
- Welcome new members and update of alumni
- iRTG program WiSe 2017/18
- Doctoral students seminar
- Alumni meeting (summary & future plans)
- next iRTG workshop in Wittenberg
- Election of iRTG representatives
- Miscellaneous (RISE program)
- Upcoming events
Our first alumni meeting will take place on September 1, 2017. We will meet at Peisnitz-Haus at 4pm.
Our first alumni meeting aims at the establishment of links between former and current iRTG members. Former members are invited for talks with focus on their career steps in industry or academia.
