Organization of workshops, seminars and schools

Basic Information

Name: Organization of workshops, seminars and schools
Facility: Visitors Program (VP)
Partner: Max Planck Institute for the Physics of Complex Systems (MPI-PKS)


A central task of mpipks and the Visitors Program is to conduct international workshops and seminars, connoting an outstanding role within the Max Planck Society. Priority is given to frontier subjects which develop rapidly and to new interdisciplinary topics. The institute runs focus workshops (2 - 3 days), workshops (1 week) and seminars (2 weeks - 3 months). The activities cover all research areas related to physics of complex systems.

Successful applicants and the participants of the seminar/workshop benefit from experienced local organizers, office space, computing facilities, a well-stocked library, accommodation and catering on-site. The seminar/workshop is naturally integrated in the scientific and social life of the institute, which fosters discussions and collaborations with the local scientists and research groups.

The possibility to host such an event at the institute is open to all scientists from the relevant disciplines.
