Information about the jDGKK Seminar

Important update: The deadline for registration has been extended to September 21th, 2021.

The "Junge DGKK" is an initiative of young DGKK members to promote the networking of young scientists and engineers in crystal growth. The young DGKK therefore supports the establishment and intensification of contacts between members and with experts working in science and industry through various activities. Another focus is to spark interest in young members for the work in our society as well as to gain the interest of new potential members.

The seminar usually takes place in the run-up to the main conference. In 2021 it will be on October 5th & 6th. The programme can be found here.
