International Teaching Staff Week 2022

It is our great pleasure to invite you to the “3nd International Teaching Staff Week” of the Simulation Science Center Clausthal-Göttingen which will take place between 21 March and 25 March 2022 in Clausthal-Zellerfeld, Germany. During the teaching staff week, lecturers from abroad will offer workshops, meetings and teaching sessions in the field of simulation science.

The event takes place digitally and is accompanied by a virtual social program.

In addition, the "Science meets Art" competition will be part of the event.

Offered lectures

Lecture 1

High Performance Computing for Physical Modeling and Simulation

Prof. Dr. Yudi Rosandi (Universitas Padjadjaran, Indonesia)

Lecture 2

Prof. Dr. Francesco Maresca (University of Groningen, Niederlande)

Multiscale materials modelling: from atomistics to micromechanics

Prof. Dr. Francesco Maresca (University of Groningen, Netherlands)

Lecture 3

First principles calculations and atomistic simulations in Materials Science

Prof. Dr. Roberto Veiga (ABC Federal University, Brazil)


In principle, participants from all degree programs are welcome. The International Teaching Staff Week is included as an elective module in the following Master's programs:

  • Energy and Materials Physics
  • Materials Science and Materials Engineering
  • Mechanical Engineering
  • Process Engineering / Chemical Engineering


Science meets Art

This year, we offer the “Science meets Art” contest to all registered meeting attendees.

In science, visualization methods are a significant tool for analyzing and presenting scientific results. Images have the ability to convey information in ways that tables of data and formulae cannot. Scientific images occasionally go beyond their role as a medium for conveying information and contain aesthetic qualities that make them objects of beauty and art.

Therefore, please send in aesthetic scientific images with a meaningful caption from your work by 3/23 at 12:00 pm to nina.merkert@tu-clausthal.de. On Thursday, 3/24 at 11:30 am we will vote live on the best submissions. The winner will receive a book prize and a certificate.
