Mechanics Meets Energy 2015

The third Mechanics Meets Energy symposium was held at castle Ebernburg above the valley of the river Nahe from March 23rd-26th 2015. Besides presentations from the SN department and the NG group we had two invited talks by Dr. Dominique Chatain (CNRS au Centre interdisciplinaire de nanoscience de (CINaM), Marseille, France) and Dr. Christian Liebscher (Universität Duisburg-Essen). In addition to the individual presentations, one afternoon was devoted to Group Work, where teams of 6-7 participants had to tackle general questions relevant to materials. The results of the Group Work were then presented in the evening session.
