Grand opening of CRC 1173

Time flies – our CRC is now 15 months old, and a lot has happened since its beginning. In fact, there were so many activities that up to now we did not find time to celebrate the official beginning of our CRC. This was made good for by a two-day event on September 15-16, 2016. On the evening of the first day many PIs, doctoral students, summer-school participants and friends came to celebrate the official opening in the atrium of Department of Mathematics with a common dinner.


KIT‘s vice-president for research Prof. Oliver Kraft had accepted our invitation to join us for the grand opening.  After having worked his way through thick traffic on the A8-motorway he honored our CRC through his motivating and appreciative speech. Our CRC is very grateful for the ongoing support from him and the entire presidential committee of KIT. Continue Reading →

Some persons claim that they are immune to advertising. We (that is Andreas Sturm, Jonas Köhler and David Hipp) can certainly not count us into that group of people: After multiple invitations over the central mailing list, we decided to participate in the CISM advanced school about ‘Computational Acoustics’  organized by Prof. Kaltenbacher (TU Wien) and sacrificed our Sunday and a holiday Thursday for the sake of scientific education.

CISM, International Centre for Mechanical Sciences, is a non-profit organization founded in 1968 and located in the beautiful and impressive Palazzo del Torso in Udine, Italy. The principal activity of CISM is the organization of courses, seminars, workshops and conferences to promote the exchange and application of advanced knowledge in mechanical science and in particular fields like robotics, biomechanics and environmental engineering.
