All these events are for free, except the concerts and the following dinners or lunch.
1. Concert on Wednesday 10th November at 8 pm: The Max Planck Society and the State Opera of Bavaria organized an excellent event entitled “Sphärenmusik – Harmonie des Himmels” (in German) where the Leibniz laureate Prof. Hasinger (Director of the MPI for Plasma Physics and formerly Director from the MPI of Extraterrestrial Physics) will present the mysteries of the universe. This talk will be followed by the musical works of Pierrot Lunaire op. 12 from Arnold Schönberg and Symphonie Nr. 41 C-Dur KV 551 “Jupiter” from Mozart under the direction of Kent Nagano, the music director of the Bavarian State Opera, in the Cuvilliés-Theater (close to Odeonsplatz). Unfortunately, the tickets are “ausverkauft”; however, we could reserve some tickets for this amazing event. More information:
2. Symposium on Thursday 11th and Friday 12th November: Last year, the IMPRS interdisciplinary symposium “New Frontiers in Science” was a great success since more than 400 students from many disciplines and at least 10 cities in Germany attended the lectures from Nobel and Leibniz laureates, as well as many other renowned scientists. This time, the concept is the same but it focuses on sustainability of our energy supply and biodiversity. Additionally, there will be a panel discussion exploring the role of science in society with renowned experts. See attached files for more information. Everyone is warmly invited to join us and register here for free:
