27.06.2012 Conference Visions in Science in Bremen

From September 26-28, 2012, the conference for PhD students and junior scientists will take place at the Max Planck Institute in Bremen
What will the science of tomorrow look like? How will specific research areas develop, which intersections with other areas will there be? How interdisciplinary will scientists in the future work? These are the questions that participants of the conference Visions in Science from September 26-28, 2012, at the Max Planck Institute for Marine Microbiology will be concerned with. The organizers, all of whom are graduate students of different Max Planck Institutes and of the Center for European Studies and Research (Caesar) and members of the network PhDNet of the Max Planck Society invited six eminent scientists to discuss their questions. The speakers from the fields of Neuroscience, Molecular Sensory Systems, Nano Optics, Computer Science, Economics and the Science of Complex Systems will present their personal "vision" for how their field of research is going to develop in the future. Their talks will especially target the issue how the different areas can intensify the networking between each other to more efficiently approach the challenges of tomorrow.
Besides the talks there will be discussions with the invited speakers, which will give the opportunity to delve into the topics of the talks and beyond.
Thanks to the main sponsors Lanxess, BASF, and McKinsey&Company there will be a graduate student-friendly conference fee. Moreover, the fact that the organizers could win such top-class sponsors demonstrates that the conference with its aim to promote interdisciplinarity in science has the finger on the pulse.
