May 11 & 12, 2020

DRESDEN, GERMANY

We are excited to invite you to the Max Bergmann Symposium 2020 in Dresden, Germany. The symposium will take place at the Steigenberger Hotel in the historic city center. The meeting will include talks by leading scientists from around the world.

The event aims to offer a cross-disciplinary perspective on molecular self-assembly and self-organization. The central topics are:

1. Artificial systems: assembling synthetic molecules into well-defined nanostructures and supramolecular polymer materials.

2. Biological systems: self-organization in model organisms from all trees of life.

3. Inspiration from nature: applying lessons from biological self-assembly and self-organization to create biomimetic systems.

4. Technological applications: translation toward smart nanomaterials and molecular machines with programmable functions.
