Big data analytical methods for complex systems

The “Big data analytical methods for complex systems” will be held October 6-7, 2022 in Wrocław, Poland. The workshop is co-organized by the Center for Advanced Systems Understanding (CASUS) at Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf and the University of Wrocław, Poland.

The workshop will provide an international audience to present, discuss and exchange on research progress and ideas relating to methods for analyzing complex systems and big data. It will bring together students and researchers from different disciplines.

The primary goal of this workshop is to increase the scope and intensity of scientific and educational cooperation between partner institutions. Furthermore, the purpose of the workshop is to enable implementation of student’s projects in interdisciplinary and international research teams from Polish and German institutions.

The venue of the workshop is the Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science in Wrocław, Poland.

Please find more details on program and registration on the conference website.

Prof. Dr. Stefan Kaskel (TU Dresden, Fraunhofer IWS) "Porous Energy Materials: From Fundamentals to Applications"

Porous materials play a key role in the development of catalysts, mobile and stationary energy storage applications, which are important system technologies to promote the use of renewable energies and environmentally friendly electric vehicles.
Metal-Organic Frameworks (MOFs) synthesized in Dresden (named DUT-n) reach specific surface areas up to 7800 m²/g. They are promising materials for natural gas storage but also reveal fundamentally interesting novel phenomena. Hierarchical porous carbons are more robust and their high electrical conductivity renders them as highly useful components in the area of supercapacitors, batteries and electrocatalysts. Especially lithium sulfur batteries require materials with a high specific pore volume for sulfur loading. Lithium sulfur batteries are considered as highly promising next generation batteries because of the high theoretical capacity. An increase of energy density up to 350-400 Wh/kg is within reach.

Strongly Coupled Coulomb Systems (SCCS)

SCCS 2022 was held July 24-29, 2022 in Görlitz, Germany. The conference was hosted by the Center for Advanced Systems Understanding (CASUS) at Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf.

SCCS is an interdisciplinary conference focusing on strong Coulomb interactions in many-body systems. This is the fifteenth of a series of international conferences covering theory, simulation, and experiment.  

Systems and topics of interest are very diverse: dusty plasmas, electrons in semiconductors and nanostructures, charged colloids and DNA, astrophysical plasmas (planetary or stellar interior), quark-gluon plasmas, dense plasmas generated by shock waves or by laser/ion/electron beams, nonneutral and ultracold plasmas, dense hydrogen, and statistical and kinetic theories of strongly coupled Coulomb systems.  

The special feature and interest for this conference are that it brings together people from very diverse fields, researchers who nevertheless share a common interest in systems with one single unifying theme: strong Coulomb interactions. The SCCS Conference emphasizes common behavior and techniques arising from the strong Coulomb interaction, an emphasis that favors cross fertilisations that would otherwise never happen.
