Macromolecular Structures –
Interactive Meeting on
Crystallisation, Fibrillation and Beyond

Scope of the conference

Central scientific topics of this conference are the crystallisation of synthetic polymers and the fibrillation of proteins. These processes of macromolecular structure formation are defined by similar concepts, such as the importance of local order and the constraints introduced by the connectivity of the chain-like molecules. By bringing together researchers from both fields, we improve our understanding of relevant mechanisms, design advanced (e.g. hybrid) systems and discover new, exciting perspectives.

This will be a conference that is attractive for researchers from macromolecular science of all career stages. We will provide plenty of opportunity to present, especially for PhD students and other early career scientists, and to exchange with their peers as well as with more senior scientists of the field. Therefore, our programme will be a balanced mix of scientific presentations and more interactive sessions. These interactive elements range from the classical poster sessions to round table discussions, insights behind the CV of the invited speakers and workshops on topics relevant for PhD students.

Organisers

A team of doctoral students of the SFB/TRR 102 and its integrated Research Training Group organises the MacroStruct2023. After two years of restrictions due to the Covid 19-pandemic, many PhD students so far only attended online conferences. Hence, our motivation is to organise a conference especially for young researchers in polymer science.

About

MacroStruct23 is organised by a team of doctoral students of the SFB/TRR 102. After two years of restrictions due to the Covid 19-pandemic, many PhD students so far only attended online conferences. Hence, our motivation is to organise a conference that is not only attractive for established scientists in macromolecular science but focuses also on young researchers.
