Workshop FOR 1376 2016


Workshop of the DFG Research Unit FOR 1376

Elementary Reaction Steps in Electrocatalysis: Theory meets Experiment

Workshop May 1-4, 2016

Castle Reisensburg near Ulm

In 2010, the German Science Foundation (DFG) established the DFG Research Unit FOR 1376 "Elementary steps in Electrocatalysis: Theory meets experiment", which has been mainly located in Ulm. After two funding periods of three years each, DFG Research Units come to an end. Hence 2016 will be the final year of the Ulm Research Unit. We want to celebrate this event by an international workshop  on Castle Reisensburg near Günzburg from Sunday night, May 1, 2016, until Wednesday noon, May 4, with about 50 international participants. In this workshop the results of the Research Unit shall be presented, but also the international state of the art of theoretical and experimental research on electrocatalysis and other subjects related to electrochemical energy conversion and storage will be reviewed.

The present workshop at Castle Reisensburg will have about 55 participants, of which approximately 20 will be invited speakers each giving 45 minutes presentations. All participants will be accommodated at Castle Reisensburg. In addition, there will be some contributed talks, predominantly by young scientists to give them the chance to present their results to an international audience. Furthermore, the participants who are not giving talks will have the possibility to present their work at a poster session on the second evening.

This workshop ist supported by the German Science Foundation (DFG) through the DFG Research Unit FOR 1376 "Elementary Reaction Steps in Electrocatalysis: Theory meets Experiment", the European Psi-k Network for electronic structure calculations and the "Fonds der Chemischen Industrie".
