Unfortunately, we have to announce that Andrea Balducci will not be able to hold his talk at our symposium. On the other hand, we quickly found another speaker to fill his gap in the habilitands/young professor session on friday: Fabian Dielmann started as a habilitand at the WWU Münster in 2013 and will tell us about New tools for the activation of small molecules: from electron-deficient nitrenes to electron-rich phosphanes. We are grateful for his decision on short notice and look forward to an exciting talk.

Plenary Lectures

After the final stretch of the registration, we would like to give some more details on our fourth plenary lecture. 


Andrea Balducci, Pol Besenius and Mark P. Waller are three independent researchers right at the start of their carreer and hold/held habilitand positions at the university of Münster. In their talks, you will get an impression of the life at the beginning of an independent carreer as well as part of the chemistry that is being pursued at our own university. 


We will hear exciting talks on these topics:

Ionic liquids in high power devices (Andrea Balducci)

ß-Sheet encoded self-assembly in pH-regulated supramolecular polymers and luminescent Au(I)-materials (Pol Besenius)

A density-based adaptive QM/MM method for modelling complex (bio-)chemical systems (Mark P. Waller)


In fact, Andrea Balducci and Pol Besenius already climbed the next rung of the ladder, having very recently taken up positions at the Helmholtz Institute Ulm and the Gutenberg-University Mainz, respectively. Congratulations from us!


Also, a revised program schedule is now online. You can find it here.

Abstract Submission Error
