761. WE-Heraeus-Seminar — Entropy and the Second Law of Thermodynamics –The past, the present, and the future
14 Jul 2022 - 17 Jul 2022 • Bad Honnef, Germany
Wilhelm and Else Heraeus-Foundation
The second law of thermodynamics that characterizes the entropy change of many-body systems is a fundamental law of Nature. Originally formulated by Rudolf Clausius to understand the conversion of heat into work in the context of heat engines, it is now universally used to describe the direction of thermodynamic transformations close and far from equilibrium in physics, chemistry and biology.

In this workshop, we will celebrate Clausius' 200th birthday in 2022 by exploring the recent developments in the experimental and theoretical investigations in the context of the second law in various directions. We aim for an inspiring exchange between researchers from such diverse fields as information theory, cosmology, quantum physics, non-equilibrium thermodynamics, physical chemistry, and biophysics under the unifying framework of the second law. We will, in particular, focus on the intimate interplay between entropy and information, the study of far-from-equilibrium processes in classical and quantum systems, as well as the role played by entropy in the function of molecular and biological systems. The participants will be both senior and young researchers working in these active fields.

For all participants, complimentary on-site and full-board accommodation is provided by the Wilhelm and Else Heraeus Foundation, and there is no conference fee. For further information on the WEH seminar, invited speakers and application procedure please visit the conference website. PhD students and PostDocs are encouraged to apply.

SNI 2022 — German Conference for Research with Synchrotron Radiation, Neutrons and Ion Beams at Large Facilities
05 Sep 2022 - 07 Sep 2022 • Freie Universität Berlin, Germany
Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin für Materialien und Energie
Scientists from all disciplines are invited to the SNI 2022 Conference to present their newest results obtained using synchrotron radiation, neutron and ion beam facilities, to discuss novel developments and exchange on future ideas. This fifth conference of the SNI series, started in 2006, will highlight the benefits of collaborative research, bringing together researchers from University and Industry with scientists at large-scale facilities, and underline the importance of the availability of complementary experiments with synchrotron, neutron and ion beams towards understanding and ultimately controlling the properties of matter, materials, devices and processes.
Abstract submission deadline:
24 Apr 2022
