2DMP Kickoff Meeting in Erfurt
The kickoff meeting of the SPP took place in Erfurt on October 12/13, 2020. The venue was the Dompalais Erfurt, directly in the historic city center. Due to the Corona-related regulations we were limited to a maximum of 36 in-person participants, so we organized the meeting as a hybrid event to include both on-site and off-site participants. All talks and discussions were streamed using
Zoom (allowing remote participants to present their projects and to discuss with the on-site participants after the talks),
VLC stream (one-way stream, short delay) and
YouTube (one-way stream, longer delay).
The schedule including a list of all talks as well as a list of the 31 on-site participants can be found here. We had approx. 30 people attending the meeting via Zoom; the YouTube stream was played 39 times.
Additionally to the talks presenting the individual projects and discussions between the PIs the steering committee of the SPP 2244 was elected at the kickoff meeting. The members will be:
Prof. Dr. Jaroslav Fabian, University of Regensburg, Theoretical Physics,
Prof. Dr. Janina Maultzsch, FAU Erlangen-Nürnberg, Solid-state Physics,
Prof. Dr. Christoph Stampfer, RWTH Aachen, Solid-state Physics,
Prof. Dr. Ursula Wurstbauer, University of Münster, Solid-state Physics,
Prof. Dr. Thomas Heine (coordinator), TU Dresden, Theoretical Chemistry.
