Symposium “IRIS 2018”

The Integrative Research Institute for the Sciences IRIS Adlershof invites to the one-day Symposium “IRIS 2018”:

Date:        Thursday, June 21, 2018
Location:  Erwin Schrödinger-Zentrum, Raum 0'119
                 Rudower Chaussee 26, 12489 Berlin

The focus is on ideas for the further development of IRIS on the topics of Advanced Microscopies, Hybrid Materials for Optics and Electronics, Mathematical Physics of Complex Systems and Quantum Technologies.
The symposium will end with the traditional BBQ at Gerdan's Café.
