[kfn-info] Prizes for Navid Qureshi und Artur Glavic, SNI2022, Deep Learning School and Deadlines

KFN email newsletter on 20 September 2022


Dear friends of research with neutrons,

> KFN prizes for Navid Qureshi and Artur Glavic

At SNI2022 (see below) two young scientists were awarded for their research with neutrons - we congratulate!

Dr. Navid Qureshi from the Institut Laue-Langevin, ILL, France, received the prestigious Wolfram-Prandl Prize 2022, which was first awarded 20 years ago. In doing so, the Committee Research with Neutrons recognised the enormous progress he had made in the use of polarised neutrons. By combining different methods, he was able to gain new insights into complex magnetic phenomena.

Dr. Artur Glavic from the Paul Scherrer Institute, PSI, Switzerland, received the inaugural KFN Instrumentation Prize for his significant contribution to the development and construction of novel neutron reflectometers that can be used, among other things, for studies of magnetic systems. With this prize, the KFN would like to emphasise the importance of methodological developments and encourage the prize winners to continue their careers in this direction.

Did you also attend the SNI2022? Then you can look back on the inspiring days in Berlin by reading our report. And if you couldn't be there, you should make a note of SNI2026 - it's worth it!

> Deep Learning School "Advanced Concepts", 28 Nov. - 01 Dec 2022, Hotel Kloster Damme, registration until 14 November 2022

The second Deep Learning School offers intensive courses on Graph Neural Networks, GANs, Autoencoders and Normalizing Flows. The workshop is aimed at deep learning enthusiasts from all ErUM (Research on Universe and Matter) communities who have successfully mastered the basic concepts of deep learning. Prior knowledge of neural networks is required, but participation in the first Deep Learning School is not a prerequisite. Registration deadline is 14 Nov. 2022.

> Job opportunities in the ErUM Data Hub

Would you like to actively shape the implementation of the Digital Transformation in the ErUM communities? Then you might be interested to know that there will be two important jobs advertised in the ErUM Data Hub, namely for team leadership and a unit:
