The 54th Symposium on Theoretical Chemistry (STC) will take place at the Martin-Luther-University Halle-Wittenberg from September 17th - 20th, 2018. This year's topic of the conference will be "Non-covalent Interactions". Many reputable invited speakers from all over the world will give insights into this important field of science with their talks, spanning from the development of methods to applications. Furthermore, contributed talks and posters will cover all areas of theoretical chemistry. The "Symposium on Theoretical Chemistry" is the largest annual meeting of theoretical chemists from Germany, Austria, Switzerland and colleagues from other countries.
Bioplastics are conquering more and more industrial fields – from packaging branches to automotive industries. This raises questions especially for injection moulders and processors, such as, for example:
-Which biopolymers are suiteable for the product lines of our customers?
-How can we develop those increasing complex materials time- and cost-efficiently?
-How can we process the mechanic and thermic sensitive biopolymers gently and affordably?
-Is it possible to continue using the present machinery – or are investments unavoidable?
-What testing procedures are capable to anticipate the characteristics of bio-materials during their average lifetime?
Those and further questions will be answered at the „BIOPOLYMER 2018“ congress – from a practitioner’s point of view.

From 29 September to 3 October 2017, the German Ornithologists‘ Society (DO-G) will have the next annual meeting at Halle (Saale). Founded in 1850 at nearby Leipzig, the DO-G is today one of the oldest scientific societies in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. The annual meetings offer an exchange on the most actual topics in ornithology. Next assemblage has a special significance in being the 150th annual meeting of the society, expecting to draw 500 national and international guests to Halle (Saale). The head subjects will range from the society’s history to the latest developments in bird sciences. The Martin Luther University will host this conference in the Audimax-complex right in the town center, linking to its importance in the development of scientific ornithology in the late 18th and early 19th century.

In September 2017 the institute of the didactics of biology at the Martin-Luther-Universität Halle-Wittenberg invites to the 21. Conference of FDdB, which will stand under the headline of 'Biology Didactics as a Science' and will take place in Halle (Saale). With that we combine past and present on the occasion of the anniversary of our foundation, since the topic was also the focus of the first conference in 1977.
Organizer: Fachsektion Didaktik der Biologie (FDdB)
The 7th multilateral Kant colloquium („Kant und seine Kritiker / Kant et ses critiques / Kant and his critics“) takes place at Martin-Luther-University Halle-Wittenberg from 28 to 30 April, 2017. About 55 speakers from all parts of the world will discuss the philosophy of Immanuel Kant from the perspective of his critics. The colloquium takes place in Germany for the second time in 2017 (the first time was 2011 in Mainz).

The 6th International CAM workshop on Failure Analysis and Material Diagnostics of Electronics Components 2017, organized by Fraunhofer CAM in cooperation with EUFANET, is particularly focused on innovation in failure analysis methods and tools for system in package and 3D integration electronic devices. Within the workshop also first outcome of the CATRENE / EURIPIDES project Smart Analysis Methods for 3D Integration in Advanced Microsystems and Corresponding Materials (SAM3) will be presented.
The Halle Institute for Economic Research (IWH) – Member of the Leibniz Association and the Martin Luther University of Halle-Wittenberg are organising the 22 nd Spring Meeting of Young Economists (SMYE) to be held in Halle (Saale), Germany from March 23 rd to 25th, 2017. The SMYE is a well known yearly conference organized by the European Association of Young Economists. The goal of the conference is to promote the exchange of ideas and experience among young economists conducting research in all fields of economics. Keynote speakers in 2017 will be Jordi Gali, Ernst Fehr, Uwe Sunde and Barbara Rossi. More information about our mission and history can be found on the conference website.
The year 2017 is marked by the anniversary celebrations of the Reformation, when it will be 500 years since Martin Luther began a religious movement which influenced all aspects of society and culture up to the present day.The International Schleiermacher Society will hold a convention to contribute to this commemoration. Under the broad categories “Plurality – Subjectivity – Critique”, questions will be discussed relating to the ways in which Reformation heritage has influenced modern life as well as in which ways modernity represents a continuation of Reformation processes. These question will be addressed with particular reference to the work of theologian and philosopher Friedrich Schleiermacher, who can be considered a protagonist of a modern understanding of religion and Christianity."

The conference will be organised by the DDA (Dachverband Deutscher Avifaunisten) with support from the DO-G (Deutsche Ornithologen-Gesellschaft). EBCC conferences are held every three years, bringing together people involved in bird monitoring, research and conservation across Europe and beyond. Topics are varied, ranging from the results of new common bird monitoring programs, waterbird monitoring and atlases, studies of causes of population change, demography or distribution in European birds, studies of the effectiveness of conservation action and the impact of government policies, new technologies, methods or analytical techniques, the use of birds as indicators, and the development of citizen science projects. The venue is the campus of the Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg in the middle of town. Mid-conference excursions are planned to various locations in the region.
