Central events

The SFB organized an international symposium with topic "Subduction Dynamics - Bridging the Scales" which took place from May, 29 to June, 1 at the IG Metall Bildungszentrum in Sprockhövel near Bochum. The presentations given during the symposium are documented in an Abstract Volume that was distributed to the participants and sent to external institutions around the world. The oral program consisted of 11 keynotes held by invited, internationally renowned scientists. The keynotes were supplemented by 6 shorter talks of external scientists. Ample time was available for discussions among the participants. The SFB presented its work exclusively during poster sessions which took place in the morning and the afternoon in between the keynotes.

The SFB also organizes a regular colloquium where scientists from other institutions around the world are invited to spend a few days with the SFB and to give a talk. The following guests visited the SFB in the third funding period.
