Welcome to the 15 th Lähnwitzseminar on Calorimetry 2018 in Rostock
     June 03, evening until June 08, morning

Interplay between Nucleation, Crystallization, and the Glass Transition
Hotel Am Alten Strom Rostock-Warnemuende, in the North-East of Germany

The Laehnwitzseminar aims to bring together scientists from different fields of calorimetry and science in general and offer a platform for rather broad and intensive discussions and stimulate progress and further developments in calorimetry.
