Highlights der Physik

The Highlights of Physics (HdP) is a science festival for all curious people. The programme: a big science show with celebrities like "Quarks" presenter Ranga Yogeshwar, an interactive exhibition with physics "to touch and try", live experiments, a competition for schoolchildren and exciting lectures by top researchers. Even "Dandelion" and Peter Lustig as well as Armin Maiwald from the "Sendung mit der Maus" (programme with the mouse) have already been involved. And best of all: Admission is free.mehr...

Lise-Meitner-Lectures

Lise Meitner was born in Vienna and worked in Berlin for over 30 years. In 1939 she delivered the first physical-theoretical explanation of nuclear fission. She died in Cambridge (Great Britain) in 1968. In her honour, the Austrian Physical Society (ÖPG) and the German Physical Society (DPG) have established the "Lise Meitner Lectures" (LML), which took place for the first time in 2008.mehr...

Max von Laue lectures

The Max von Laue Lectures take place within the framework of the Annual Meetings and are given by scientists who are distinguished by their strong political or social commitment.mehr...
