Fifteen invited lectures will cover selected topics in the following fields:

  • Astrophysics
  • Biophysics
  • Chemistry
  • Elementary particle physics
  • Condensed matter
  • Materials science
  • Soft matter science
  • Environmental research
  • Hydrodynamics and turbulence
  • Plasma physics
  • Computer science

The talks are intended to inform a broad audience of scientists and the interested public about the research activities at NIC.
