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

Some of you have already recognized that there was a small but significant error in the abstract submission script.

This has been fixed and uploading your abstract should work proper now.


We are very sorry about this,

Invited Speakers

We are very pleased to announce our invited speakers for the
Frühjahrssymposium 2015 in Münster. We will add detailed information
about the speakers and their talks shortly, so please bear with us.

These outstanding scientists will share their inspiration and experience
with us in their plenary talks:

Prof. Ferdi Schüth – Max Planck Institute Mühlheim

Prof. Matthias Mann – Max Planck Institute of Biochemistry Martinsried

Prof. Erick Carreira – ETH Zürich

The fourth plenary session will be held by three habilitands of the
University of Münster, to present a share of our own university's
research profile and offer a view on reasearch from the up-and-coming
next generation of scientists. More information regarding this session
will be announced shortly.

Last but not least, the closing lecture, our attempt of a view outside
the box, will be held by science writer
Dr. Michael Groß – Oxford

We are already eagerly looking forward to the talks of all our invited
speakers. Now it is your turn to try and match our mark with your
contributions, that we are of course excited to see as well!
