March 1-3, 2023
Leipzig (Germany)

Macromolecular Structures –
Young Researchers Meeting on
Crystallisation, Fibrillation and Beyond

Scope of the conference

Central scientific topics are the crystallization of synthetic polymers, the formation of amyloids in the area of biopolymers as well as the structure formation in hybrid systems (macromolecules with synthetic and biological elements).

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 program will be a balanced mix of scientific presentations as well as more interactive sessions. These interactive elements range from the classical poster sessions to workshops on topics relevant for PhD students, round table discussions and insights behind the CV of the invited speakers.

Confirmed invited speakers

  • Paolo Arosio (ETH Zürich, Switzerland)
  • Sébastien Lecommandoux (Bordeaux Institute of Technology, France)
  • Sara Linse (Lund University, Sweden)
  • Günter Reiter (University of Freiburg, Germany)
  • Alicyn Rhoades (Penn State Behrend, USA)
  • Birgit Strodel (Heinrich Heine University Düsseldorf, Germany)

Organizers

A team of doctoral students of the SFB/TRR 102 and its integrated Research Training Group organizes 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 organize a conference especially for young researchers in polymer science.

About

MacroStruct23 is organized 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 organize a conference that is not only attractive for established scientists in macromolecular science but focuses also on young researchers.
