Since 2016, the Giersch International Symposium is held yearly at FIAS. The conference series, funded by STIFTUNG GIERSCH gives young scientists the opportunity to learn from well known, exceptional reasearchers and to expand their networks.
The 3rd Karl Schwarzschild Meeting on Gravitational Physics and the Gauge/Gravity Correspondence will be held in Frankfurt am Main, Germany on 24-28 July 2017. The conference will focus on black holes in astrophysics, quantum gravity, and the gauge/gravity correspondence. Further information can be found on the conference website.
The Ernst Strüngmann Forum is dedicated to the promotion of interdisciplinary communication and research. Through its innovative communication process, the Ernst Strüngmann Forum provides a creative environment within which top international scientists discuss themes that transcend classic disciplinary boundaries.
On 2 and 3 May 2018, the FIAS hosted the kick-off meeting of the DFG priority programme "SPP 2041 - Computational Connectomics". The goal of SPP 2041 is to better understand the interconnection and function of our brain and nervous system. Using methods of computer science and mathematics, the participating scientists try to better understand the structure of the connections between individual nerve cells or entire brain regions by using the term "computational connectomics".

This interdisciplinary conference brings together researchers in computer science, artificial intelligence, artificial life, control, robotics, neurosciences, ethology, evolutionary biology and related fields in order to further our understanding of the behaviours and underlying mechanisms that allow natural and artificial animals (so-called animats) to adapt and survive in uncertain environments.
The 3rd Giersch International Symposium will take place at FIAS from 28.08.-07.09.2018 under the topic: "The Logistics of Neural Function". The symposium brings together leading experimenters, theorists and method developers from the field of neuroscience to exchange fundamental questions. The aim is to understand the functioning and logistical challenges of nerve cells from the ground up.
In Rememberance of Walter Greiner, founding father of FIAS
the “FIAS International Symposion on Discoveries at the Frontiers of Science” was hosted in June 2017.
The school "Modeling Matter under Extreme Conditions", to be held from 3 to 5 of May, 2017 in Havana, Cuba, will take place in the E Street, corner of 15 Street, No. 309 Vedado, La Habana, 10400, in the offices of the Institute of Cybernetics, Mathematics and Physics - ICIMAF.
The workshop “Interdisciplinary Science Communication 2017” was held from Juli 10-14 2017 for the first time. It was its goal to connect experienced Science communicators with scientists to exchange knowledge and expand networks. The Workshop was held in German.
The 3rd Karl Schwarzschild Meeting on Gravitational Physics and the Gauge/Gravity Correspondence will be held in Frankfurt am Main, Germany, on 24-28 July 2017. The conference will focus on black holes in astrophysics, quantum gravity, and the gauge/gravity correspondence.
The fifth edition of the International FAIR School will take place in Castiglione della Pescaia, Italy, from September 03-10, 2017.
This years Giersch Symposium was held form October 16-27 at FIAS in Frankfurt, with its main focus on cancer therapy with particle beams. With the start of the first clinical facility with dual ion options (protons and carbon) in Heidelberg, Germany, in 2009, the interst in hadrontherapy has been constantly growing. New facilites are emerging in Europe and have started the treatment of patients: MIT in Marburg, MedAustron in Wiener Neustadt and CNAO in Pavia.
The Symposium “Science and Society” will create a collaborative platform and bring together young researchers and established scientists from the humanities and social sciences (philosophy, law, economics) and natural sciences (physics, mathematics, biology, chemistry). Given the historical background of the region, the group of participants and keynote speakers/lecturers is carefully selected and represents the different ethnical groups as well as the different countries and regions. This multi- disciplinary group will discuss and develop new projects and will identify new forms of cooperation across the western Balkans region and with Germany.
A Meeting of the COST Action Group CANTATA was held at FIAS on November 7 and 8 2017.
