Young Investigator Workshop

Winklmoos-Alm, Reit im Winkl, Deutschland

The Young Investigator Workshop takes place from 10th January to 15th January 2016 at the Winklmoos-Alm in Reit im Winkl. 

The workshop focuses on the themes of our Helmholtz Virtual Institute 419.

This includes both experimental and theoretical projects on molecular and chemical dynamics, phase transitions and switching as well as fundamental light-matter interaction.

We encourage young scientists (PhD students, master students and young postdocs) who work in this field to participate in this workshop – and to present and discuss their results in an informal atmosphere.

The Winklmoos-Alm is located in the Bavarian Alps and has direct access to the ski area Steinplatte. There are possibilities for skiing (beginners to experts), cross-country skiing and winter hiking.

For eligible young researchers the Virtual Institute covers costs for accommodation and board.
