Confirmed Speakers


A deeper insight of the electronic coupling between metal centers is an utmost concern in molecular science. Despite its importance there are still many open questions to be addressed. Multi-nuclear metal organic compounds frequently exhibit collective and cooperative effects of the metal centers. Until now, these effects have not been fully understood and, thus, have been only described empirically. A fundamental knowledge of metal-metal interactions would open new perspectives in the search for new materials.

The aim of our Transregional Collaborative Research Centre is to gain new fundamental knowledge of the electronic structure of multi-nuclear metal complexes including two or three transition metal atoms. This will allow predicting cooperative effects with regard to the relative geometry of the metal centers to each other and to understand and predict magnetic, chemical, and optical properties based on this knowledge.

Conference Agenda

We invite all participants of our conference to join us for an informal get-together on Sunday afternoon and evening starting at 16:00 o'clock in the CFN building (bldg. 30.25, Wolfgang Gaede Str. 1a)

 * The registration fee for students is to be paid only by students participating in programs completed by the following degrees: Bachelor, master, diploma, magister (graduate), first state examination, comparable degrees or the doctor’s degree. If you register as student member, you will be obliged to submit a certificate  of enrolment to the Conference Office. PhD students having no certificate of enrolment are obliged to submit a confirmation of registration of their university.


Please registrate for the symposium via our registration form. 



We cordially invite graduate and postgraduate students to present posters.  The poster should be roughly DIN A0 (841 x 1189 mm²) in size and can be either in "portrait" or "landscape" format. Since the posters will be on display for the entire symposium, you might want to include a picture of yourself in the upper right-hand corner. This will make it easier for everyone to identify and contact participants with common interests during the symposium .



For the convenience of those attending the conference, we have reserved rooms which you can book through:
