CRC 1114 Spring School: Methods for Particle Systems with Multiple Scales

Date: May 29 - June 2, 2017

Venue: WIAS, Mohrenstr. 39, 10117 Berlin

As a part of the CRC 1114 PhD program, a week-long CRC School takes place every year. The CRC Schools offer advanced scientific courses in CRC-related topics, held by the principal investigators of the CRC and international guests. The topic of the CRC Spring School 2017 is Methods for Particle Systems with Multiple Scales. The program consists of mini courses by renowned international guests, talks by CRC 1114 members and presentations by the participating PhD students.


Please note that places are limited and participation is possible only upon prior registration via email to nina.fabjancic[at] The registration deadline is 12 May 2017.
