Mechanics Meets Energy 2019

Mechanics Meets Energy 2019

The already seventh Mechanics Meets Energy symposium from January 21st – 25th 2019 brought us to the Dünenhof near Cuxhaven at the shore of the North Sea, again perfectly organised by Carola & Steffen. The program consisted of 53 presentations, including three by internationally renowned guest speakers. The number of talks – several shared by two presenters – and the number of participants reflects the prosperity of the SN department and the NG group. Notwithstanding the packed program, we managed to enjoy the frozen beach, German bowling and lots of fish.

Mechanics Meets Energy 2019

Everyone is happy…

…and enjoying the retreat.
