Dynamic Pathways in Multidimensional Landscapes

International Conference  organized by the Helmholtz Virtual Institute
16 – 20 September 2013, Berlin, Germany

  Registration of participation and upload of contributions


The conference mirrors the scientific scope of the same named Helmholtz Virtual Institute focusing on the dynamics of a broad range of materials from molecules to nanoscale structures and strongly correlated solids. Emphasizing on X-ray methods but applying as well complementary experimental techniques we aim at a unifying view on the properties of the different systems governed by coupled internal degrees of freedom that interact with the environment.  The broad interdisciplinary approach is consciously chosen to break down the barriers between the communities and allow for interesting discussions and mutual fertilization of the scientific work.

We will have scientific sessions on specific material classes or methods being accompanied by those devoted to the advancement of experimental and theoretical methods and poster sessions. Program details can be found in the download box.

  • Quantum materials, magnetism and correlated Solids
