Exchanging research
in the heart of Franconia

The Joint Conference of EP2DS-23 and MSS-19 will be organized by the Julius-Maximilians-University and takes place from July 27th to 31st, 2020 in Würzburg.

The aim of the joint conference

The conference enables the exchange of recent scientific advances in the broad field of electronic properties of two-dimensional systems and modulated semiconductor struc­tu­res. There will be plenary and invited talks given by speaker who are expert in the field and contributing to the current pro­gress. This will give early career re­sear­cher the opportunity to see the latest advances and furthermore to present and discuss their latest achievements.

EP2DS-23 / MSS-19

„EP2DS“ features fundamental physics arising in two-dimensional systems which as well includes emergent materials such as graphene, topological insulators, and tran­si­tion metal dichalcogenides. Students of the elite network International Doctorate Program “Topological Insulators” will be able to see the latest ad­van­ces in the exciting fields of topological insulators and topological su­per­con­duc­ti­vi­ty.

„MSS“ places greater emphasis on synthesis, processing, characterization, and ap­pli­ca­tions of modulated systems including se­mi­con­duc­tors and a broader range of novel materials. More specifically, the focus is on heterostructures and superlattices, quantum dots and nanowires, as well as devices for quantum information processing.

The EP2DS/MSS will be held in one of Germany's most beautiful cities, Würzburg, lying at the northern starting point of the Romantic Road and right in the heart of Franconia. The participants will have the opportunity to visit one of Germany's biggest wine-producing areas. The city itself is set in a wonderful location next to the River „Main“ and offers a wealth of history which centers around the Prince-Bishops and their two main resi­den­cies, the „Marienberg Fortress“ and the „Würzburg Residence“, the latter of which is a UNESCO World Heritage site.
