Advanced Study Groups

Advanced Study Groups

MPIPKS hosts each year up to two Advanced Study Groups, in order to further advance the interaction and exchange between outstanding scientists and young researchers. Each group consists of several scientists headed by the Principal Investigator (PI). Their work focusses on a modern and important topic in the broad field of the Physics of Complex Systems. With the full support of the Visitors Program, the group will attract further shorter term visitors for seminars, lectures, discussions and other meetings.

MPIPKS welcomes applications for future Advanced Study Groups. Potential PIs should contact one of the directors of the institute in advance.
