Symposium and workshop are organized yearly by the Deutsches Resilienz Zentrum (DRZ), the International Resilience Alliance (intresa), the DFG-funded Collaborative Research Center 1193 "Neurobiology of Resilience", and the EU Horizon project DynaMORE. We are part of the Rhine-Main Neuroscience Network (rmn²).

The young researcher short talks are supported by the Boehringer Ingelheim Stiftung.

Poster sessions – young researcher short talks – travel grants – poster award
Participants are invited to submit poster abstracts (max. 300 words, please give full author list and affiliations) via e-mail (deadline July 1).  Suitable posters by young researchers are selected for short talks.  Please indicate your age when submitting. Speakers will be reimbursed  for their travel expenses. The best poster will receive a poster award  (300 €).

cecam Summer School 2019 on Applied mathematics and machine learning perspectives on Big Data Problems in Computational Sciences

30.09.2019 – 04.10.2019

Date: 30.09.2019 – 04.10.2019
Location: Mainz

This summer school (also supported by the CRC 1193) aims at presenting and comparing important representatives from a wide variety of approaches that address these challenges, highlighting the differences and possible synergies between the quite different view points on their mathematical and computational limitations. 

Practical exercises in the afternoon sessions will also be tackling specific mathematical and computational issues that arise in the context of, e.g., biophysical and biomedical applications. In the hands-on sessions we will introduce several new open-source tools, illustrating them on toy model systems – as well as on an analysis of biomolecular data for a Parkinson-relevant alpha-synuclein molecule and on analysis of single cell human mRNA data.




Workshop "Academic writing"

22.10.2019 – 23.10.2019

Date: 22.10.2019 – 23.10.2019
Time: 09:00 – 17:00
Location: Institut für Lehrergesundheit (IfL), Seminar Room 01, Kupferbergterrasse 17 – 19, 55116 Mainz

Workshop Description: Writing good papers is hard work and participants will learn about the structural and language norms for research papers published in English. Participants will also be introduced to a variety of strategies that will provide assistance to draft texts more efficiently, to pinpoint their strengths and weaknesses, and to revise them effectively. During the feedback sessions, participants will examine a draft of a text they have written, as well as text drafts submitted by the other participants.

Target audience: Scientists of CRC 1193
Maximum number of participants: 12
Registration: Please contact Dr. Sabrina Meister
