Rebecca Hylton, PhD student in the MPI research group Molecular Simulations and Design and at University College London, has been awarded with the Catlow Prize 2016 for the best PhD presentation in Computational Chemistry for her talk entitled “Crystal structure prediction as an aid to designing chiral resolution processes”.
It is with deep dismay that the Max Planck Society had to take notice of the fact that Turkish researchers are to be prevented from continuing to be an active part of the international scientific community.
The International Workshop on Industrial Crystallization BIWIC 2016 intends to bring together scientists and engineers from academia and industry to present and discuss current work and also to identify challenging fields of research of both fundamental and industrial interest, as crystallization is an important technique for separation and purification of substances as well as for product design in chemical and life-science industries. The 23rd workshop continues the successful series of events. The preliminary program is online now.[more]
The FVST Ladies’ Night for Women in MINT is initiated by the Faculty of Process and Systems Engineering for the third time running. Students and doctoral candidates from the entire MINT field are invited! A career is individual and flexible, and does not follow a fixed scheme! Among the three speakers Dr.-Ing. Tanja Vidakovic-Koch, scientist at Max Planck Institute Magdeburg, resumes her career path and introduces her present scientific research.
In acknowledgement of his scientific achievements in the field of applied mathematics, Dr. Martin Stoll, head of the Numerical linear Algebra for Dynamical Systems group at the Max Planck Institute Magdeburg, was awarded today with the Richard von Mises Prize 2016 by the GAMM (International Association of Applied Mathematics and Mechanics). He was honoured especially for his research on fast iterative solvers for PDE-constrained optimization.
