CRC Schools in the first funding period (2014 - 2018)
The Fall School 2015 on Weather and Climate Modelling took place from 12 to 16 October at Haus Fläming in Dahnsdorf, Brandenburg. It was organized in cooperation with the graduate school GeoSim. 18 PhD students from the CRC 1114, GeoSim and the graduate school Natural Hazards in a Changing World attended lectures and training offered by the PIs and guests. Through a speed networking event and evening activities the students also had the opportunity to establish new contacts and explore the possibilities for interdisciplinary collaborations.
The Spring School 2016 focused on Molecular Dynamics. It took place at Burghotel Bad Belzig from 25 to 29 April. 14 PhD students with different disciplinary backgrounds received training from the PIs Prof. Bettina Keller, Prof. Petra Imhof, Prof. Carsten Hartmann and Dr. Marcus Weber as well as a special guest Dr. Gabriel Stoltz from CERMICS. By giving short talks and engaging in an interdisciplinary group work, the PhD students contributed actively to the program. The Spring School was particularly successful in creating a deeper understanding between disciplines.
The Spring School 2017 on Methods for Particle Systems with Multiple Scales was hosted by the Weierstrass Institute in Berlin and took place from 29 May to 2 June 2017. The PhD students received training by Joep Evers from Dalhousie University Halifax, Tiejun Li from Peking University and Ben Leimkuhler from the University of Edinburgh. The mini-courses were complemented by lectures given by the CRC PIs Bettina Keller, Robert Patterson and Sebastian Reich. The PhD students contributed by giving short talks on their projects.
