Review of our conference on adsorption & characterization of porous materials “Adsorption Week” 2023
We welcomed over 150 international guests from 22 countries to our two-day hybrid conference. The event was hosted and organized by the Institute for Non-Classical Chemistry e.V. (INC) and 3P Instruments.
Two days full of exciting, inspiring but also scientifically challenging lectures. Among others, we had the pleasure to welcome Prof. G. Maurin from Montepellier, Prof. J. Denayer from Brussels, Prof. M. Oschatz from Jena, Prof. S. Henke from Dortmund, Prof. G. Gor from Ney Jersey and Prof. S. Lucena from Ceará (remotely) to Leipzig. In addition, the program was rounded off by young researchers from all over Europe and representatives from Total, Shell, TLK Energy and Hitachi Zosen Inova, who spoke about current challenges in tackling the climate crisis. In the evening of the first day, some young scientists took the opportunity to discuss their current projects with an interested and stimulating audience during a poster session. The outstanding posters were well received and many expert discussions flared up and networking points were created.
On the third day, Sebastian Ehrling and Denise Schneider (both 3P) had the opportunity to discuss with young scientists from Germany, Portugal, Norway and England about their current scientific tasks. In a workshop, ways in which scientific results can be presented at scientific lectures were showed. In a flash talk karaoke session, all participants surpassed themselves and managed to present the project of another person in a 3-minute flash talk with only 30 minutes of preparation time. Hats off to that – we were very impressed!
Thanks to all lecturers, the hotel venue and all online and on-site participants! We really liked the good mood and the familiar atmosphere.
Here are some impressions:
