virtual DPG-Frühjahrstagungen (DPG Spring Meetings) 2021

Due to the cancellation of the DPG-Frühjahrstagungen (DPG Spring Meetings) 2020, the DPG has suffered a considerable loss of scientific exchange, also on an international level. The aim of the DPG is to be able to make this exchange, which is so important for science, possible again in 2021 through conferences.

The course of the corona pandemic also affects the organisation of the DPG-Tagungen (DPG Meetings): in spring 2021, four thematically different virtual conferences will take place instead of face-to-face events.

The meetings of the SKM, SAMOP and SMuK sections, originally planned for spring, will be postponed until late summer or autumn 2021. Further information can be found here.

In addition, the SMuK section, the Short Time-scale Physics and Applied Laser Physics division and the Plasma Physics divisions organise online lectures that are particularly aimed at young scientists.

Online lectures of the Semiconductor Physics Division "Semiconductors for breakfast"
virtual, 15.03. - 26.03.2021

After its great success in 2020 "semiconductors for breakfast" returns in 2021: Every day from 15 to 26 March a fascinating talk on a current topic in semiconductor physics is presented. Active contributions (contributed talks/posters) by participants are not planned.

The talks will be live in Zoom and shall be accessible in particular to (PhD-)students. The talks will take place breakfast time at 10:15am, followed by time for questions. You can participate without registration by just using the weblink.


DPG-Frühjahrstagung (DPG Spring Meeting)

virtual*, 15.03. - 19.03.2021

  • Particle Physics
  • Radiation and Medical Physics
