MINT- EC- Academic CAMMP week

MINT-EC Academie CAMMP week 2016

22 students from schools, that are part of the MINT-EC network of excellence, came together to solve real- world problems from business and economics with the help of mathematical modelling, to learn the basics. 
The results were presented to a large audience, in RWTH Aachen’s Super C. The workshop is organized by the CCES Chair of Mathematics and AICES graduate school.

DFG Project Approved for AICES Junior Research Group Leader Prof. Dr. Ming Hu

The DFG project “Negative Thermal Expansion Materials under Pressure: a New Route for High Performance Thermoelectrics“ is a 3-year Project. It aims at exploring a new area where the electronic and phononic transport can be decoupled, when negative thermal expansion material, pressure and thermoelectrics meet together. 
The project is anticipated to start in November.

AICES 10-Year Anniversary

Nicole Faber & Marek Behr

On September 2, 2016 the AICES Graduate School celebrated its 10th year anniversary. AICES was established in November 2006 within the framework of the Excellence Initiative. The celebration took place in the Pontstrasse in the Katholische Hochschulgemeinde. A number of presentations were held about the AICES Graduate School and its development. In their presentations, Prof. Marquardt (Research Centre Jülich) and Prof. Dahmen (RWTH Aachen) included a very personal review about the origins and development of the Graduate School. The program was supplemented by lectures of Prof. Rolf Jeltsch (ETH Zurich) and Prof. Michael Schäfer (TU Darmstadt) about Computational Engineering Science at other universities. Between the presentations and during lunch the event was accompanied by music performed by a string quartet. 

We would like to thank all participants for the very successful day.
