26.05.2015 – SPICE Workshop on Computational Quantum Magnetism

Workshop interaction

From May 22 to 26, the SPICE Workshop on Computational Quantum Magnetism took place. The who is who of researchers in the field met in the scenic setting of Schloß Waldthausen which lies in Lennebergwald, a natural reserve in immediate vicinity to Mainz. 64 participants from 42 affiliations in 19 countries came together to spent five days working on the most advanced computational techniques to study complex magnetic materials to examine the latest developments and challenges. The intensive program covering a wide range of aspects connected to Computational Quantum Magnetism incorporated various scientific talks and tutorials, as well as a poster session with numerous contributions from the students.

Yesterday, Prof. Dr. Georg Krausch, the president of Johannes Gutenberg-Universität and Prof. Dr. Jairo Sinova, director of SPICE, inaugurated the Spin Phenomena Interdisciplinary Center at the festive opening ceremony in the tradition-steeped hall of Atrium Maximum. After more than a year of getting settled and building up the Center, Sinova and his team now officially start tackling their mission.  In his speech, Sinova defined that mission as the advancement of spin related materials science by globally connecting nature, cultures and people.

From February 26-28, Jairo Sinova took part in the Humboldt-Kolloquium Research Excellence in a Globalised World - Experiences and Challenges from a Brasilian-German Perspective in Sao Paulo. He delivered the keynote lecture Spintronics Research à la Humboldt: globally connecting nature, cultures, and people. In his lecture he outlined the interdisciplinarity of Spintronics research, its connection to the Humboldt spirit of doing research, and its connection to the new center SPICE, that he is starting here in Mainz with the help of his Humboldt Foundation Professorship award and the support of JGU.

The Humboldt-Kolloquium gathered many former and future Humboldtians, dignitaries from many other German agencies present in Latin America, such as the DAAD (Dr. Martina Schulze), DFG (Der. Dietrich Halm), and the Max Planck Society (Dr. Andreas Trepte),  as well as the German ambassador in Brazil (Dirk Brengelmann), the president of CAPES (Dr. Jorge Almeida Guimaraes), the president of the Universität of Bayreuth (Prof. Dr. Stefan Leibe),  the director of the Ibero-Amerikanisches Institut Berlin (Dr. Barbara Göbel), and a member of the German Bundestag (Dr. Gesine Lötzsch).
