FIAS International Symposion on Discoveries at the Frontiers of Science

Walter Greiner, our late colleague, mentor and friend, will be honored at the

“FIAS International Symposion on Discoveries at the Frontiers of Science”

The Symposion is hosted by FIAS, the Frankfurter Förderverein für physikalische Grundlagenforschung and the Department of Physics of the Goethe Universität during the week June 26 - 30, 2017.


This Symposion will cover the wide area of science Walter was interested in  – ranging from theoretical nuclear structure physics, exotic nuclei and super heavy elements, atomic and strong field theory, the nuclear equation of state, new phases of matter, relativistic heavy ion physics, particle- and astrophysics, to biology, high performance computing and network dynamics.


Former colleagues and friends of Walter are invited to attend the FIAS Symposion and present their recent scientific work.


Proceedings will be published by Springer.
