Bunsen-Tagung 2021 - Multi-Scale Modelling & Physical Chemistry of Colloids

120th General Assembly of the German Bunsen Society for Physical Chemistry

New Date: May 10-12, 2021, Virtual Conference

Bunsen-Tagung 2021

Multi-Scale Modelling & Physical Chemistry of Colloids

Dear DBG Members, dear Friends of the Bunsen-Tagung,

The current development of the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic points towards many imponderables for the coming months, so that planning the Bunsen-Tagung 2021 in Regensburg in the usual format is associated with risks. If the protective measures currently in force are not eased significantly, an on-site conference would probably only be possible for a significantly reduced number of participants.
In order to avoid a possible late cancellation of the conference, the planning should be consistent and with foresight so that certainty is created for the participants in good time.
The Board of the Bunsen Society and the Conference Chairs have therefore decided to hold the Bunsen Society Meeting in 2021 as a virtual conference. As a further result of the new format, we also have a change of date to
May 10-12, 2021 (Monday-Wednesday), with the festive opening on Monday evening.

Please submit your contributions as usual by December 1st, 2020.
Scientific exchange and exciting discoveries from all areas of physical chemistry will also be in the focus of the virtual format. Please take part!

We wish everyone a successful Bunsen-Tagung 2021.
The Board of the Bunsen Society and the Conference Chairs


We cordially invite you to the Bunsen-Tagung!
The 2021 meeting will celebrate both the 99th anniversary of the Colloid Society and the 120th General Assembly of the Bunsen Society.

The conference focuses on two main topics: Colloidal Science studies matter that is structured on the nanometer scale. It is the realm where polymers and membranes form their shape, where aggregates of amphiphilic molecules form, and where particles coagulate. Forces on different length scales drive colloidal behavior: the atomistic structure gives rise to attractive and repulsive forces. These interactions determine structure on a larger scale and drive colloidal processes.

Multi-scale modelling methods are inspired by this interplay of different length scales and combine simulations with atomistic and coarse-grained resolutions.
Parallel sessions will be held to present most recent results from all other fields
of physical chemistry – from catalysis to thermodynamics, from gas phase to solid
state, from electrochemical studies to time-resolved spectroscopy.

We are confident that you will enjoy the wide scope of subjects from fundamental to applied physical chemistry.
We hope that you will plan to join us and to contribute to the scientific success!

We are looking forward to welcoming you at the first virtual Bunsen-Tagung,
