The Wolfgang Pauli Centre for Theoretical Physics, a joint forum of the Universität Hamburg and DESY, organizes a three day Symposium on Theoretical Physics, which brings together leading international experts from different areas of physics, including condensed matter physics, atomic and molecular physics, cold atoms, chemical physics, etc.
This year's topics are:
- Theory of condensed matter
- Quantum materials
- Dynamics of quantum many-body systems
The Symposium “Beyond Multiferroics” (November 9-11, 2022) features the award ceremony for the Hamburg Prize for Theoretical Physics 2022 which is awarded to Prof. Nicola Spaldin (ETH, Zurich) in an award ceremony at the Planetarium on Nov 9, 2022. The Symposium is supported by the Joachim Herz Stiftung.
Travel Fellowships for Graduate Students
The Wolfgang Pauli Centre for Theoretical Physics encourages the participation of graduate students in the Symposium and therefore awards travel grants funded by the Joachim Herz Stiftung. Interested students should provide
- a brief curriculum vitae (max. 2 pages),
- a brief description of the current research project (max. 1/2 page), and,
- a letter of motivation why they want to attend the symposium (max. 1/2 page).
Please send your application with these documents in one single pdf file until 15 October 2022 to
The applicants will be notified until end of October 2022 the latest.
