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.

Welcome to the 17th Ferrocene Colloquium
The 17th Ferrocene Colloquium will be held from February 24 to 26, 2019, at the University of Rostock. Initial nucleus of the Ferrcocene Colloquium was a group of researchers who shared an original vital interest in the growing field of Ferrocene-based chemistry and therefore founded the Ferrocene Colloquium as a scientific exchange platform in 2003. Over the years, it has developed to a well-established European forum for organometallic chemistry in general, highlighting the chemistry of metallocenes and any kind of other π-complexes in particular. Potential topics range from synthesis, chemical properties and reactivity of new compounds, their use in catalysis, electrochemistry, photochemistry, and materials science to medical aspects. The Colloquium will be jointly organized by the Institute of Chemistry and the Leibniz Institute for Catalysis.
Six leading international experts will present keynote lectures demonstrating the diversity of the field. In addition, the meeting will provide an excellent platform for PhD students as well as principal investigators to present their research either in form of a poster or a talk. The traditionally rather workshop-like character of the Ferrocene Colloquium is perfect to initiate and foster discussions and exchange of scientific experience between young reserachers and experts.
In 2019, our University celebrates its 600th anniversary. We consider this a good occasion to discuss organometallic chemistry for the future. We are looking forward to welcome you in Rostock!

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.
