Harz/Herbstseminar Conference Series (annual since 1996)

This conference series originated as the Herbstseminar Strukturbildung in Chemie und Biophysik (Autumn Seminar for Pattern Formation in Chemistry and Biophysics), but changed to Harzseminar (Harz is a rugged terrain in Northern Germany) in 2006.

They are a series of annual conferences held at varying locations in Northern Germany until 2005 and in Goslar (Harz) since 2006.

Prior to the first seminar, Alexander Mikhailov contacted Stefan Müller and Roland Imbihl to initiate a small conference somewhere between Berlin and Hannover which developed into this long-running seminar series.
