18th European Workshop on Phosphorus Chemistry (EWPC-18)

The European Workshop on Phosphorus Chemistry (EWPC) offers early-stage researchers an opportunity to communicate their work to the leading European research groups in phosphorus chemistry.

The long tradition of workshops previously held in Kaiserslautern (2004), Bonn (2005), Leipzig (2006), Zandvoort (2007), Regensburg (2008), Florence (2009), Budapest (2010), Münster (2011), Rennes (2012), Regensburg (2013), Sofia (2014), Kassel (2015), Berlin (2016), Cluj-Napoca (2017), Uppsala (2018), Bristol (2019) and Rennes (2020) will be continued with the 18th European Workshop on Phosphorus Chemistry in Rostock, Germany. This workshop series has a strong reputation for fruitful exchange of ideas, opinions and excellent discussions. The aspects of phosphorus chemistry covered by this workshop span organic, inorganic, polymer, materials chemistry and biological chemistry.

Covid-19 has affected all areas of our lives, and now it unfortunately also affects the yearly schedule of the EWPC. So we are forced to postpone the EWPC-18 in Rostock by one year to March 2022.

Nonetheless, we want to give PhD students a public platform for their phosphorus research. Thus, we will organise an OWPC (Online Workshop on Phosphorus Chemistry)  as an additional platform for the exchange of ideas during the wait for the next regular EWPC meeting.

The "55th Symposium on Theoretical Chemistry" (STC-2019) will be hosted by the University of Rostock from September 22 to 26, 2019. The conference will be jointly organised by the Institut für Chemie (Lehrstuhl Prof. Ralf Ludwig) and the Institut für Physik (Lehrstuhl Prof. Oliver Kühn).

The STC-2019 will be one of the highlight events during this year's celebration of the 600th anniversary of the founding of the University of Rostock in 1419.

With its long tradition, the STC serves as a yearly meeting for theoretical chemists to exchange ideas and discuss latest results.   Being broad in scope, every STC in general features a main topic. The focus of the STC2019 in Rostock will be: 'Spectroscopy and Photoinduced Dynamics'.

Spectroscopy in time- and frequency-domain provides a primary tool for the detailed investigation of molecular processes ranging from simple gas phase reactions to bio-molecular catalysis. With the advent of novel techniques such as two-dimensional spectroscopy and light sources in the X-ray regime, spectroscopy is pushing the borders, not only in terms of applications but also as far as theoretical methods are concerned. The challenge is open for Theoretical Chemistry and the STC2019 will reflect the current status, covering techniques and applications from the infrared to the X-ray regime.

This Rostock STC will feature about 13 invited speakers. About 25 oral presentations will be selected from the submissions. Two poster sessions will provide the platform for intense discussions. On September 25th, the Hellmann Prize will be awarded to an early career theoretical chemist. In addition to the scientific program, there will be a joint boat trip and a conference dinner on the Warnemünde beach.

5th International Conference on Biocatalysis in Non-conventional Media

The 5th International Conference on Biocatalysis in Non-conventional Media will take place on 9th – 11th of May 2017 in Rostock, Germany. This conference is hosted by the European Federation of Biotechnology (EFB) Section on Applied Biocatalysis (ESAB), which aims to stimulate the scientific and industrial interest in applied biocatalysis. The conference will cover recent achievements in this field and provide a platform to discuss future opportunities and challenges.
