IV International Symposium
on Strong Nonlinear Vibronic and Electronic Interactions
in Solids

Tartu, May 1-3, 2013

Supported by:
  • Institute of Physics, University of Tartu, Estonia
  • Max Planck Institute for Solid State Research, Stuttgart, Germany
  • Brandenburg Technical University, Cottbus, Germany
  • Meyer-Struckmann Foundation, Germany
  • European Union through the Regional Development Fund

Organizing Committee

  • V. Hizhnyakov (Institute of Physics, University of Tartu, Estonia)
  • R. K. Kremer (Max Planck Institute, Stuttgart, Germany)
  • G. Seibold (Brandenburg Technical University, Cottbus, Germany)

General information on workshop

Over the past decades an intense collaboration between Estonian and German researchers has developed in the field of condensed matter physics, reflected by the organization of bilateral Estonian-German workshops in 2008, 2009, and 2011.


The main topics of research discussed in workshops are especially devoted to

  • Nonlinear dynamics of crystal lattices
  • Strongly correlated electronic and magnetic systems
  • modern problems of solid state spectroscopy

Travel guide

The symposium will take place at Dorpat Hotel conference centre (see directions on Google Map).
It is assumed that participants

  1. get to Tallinn by plane
  2. take a bus from Tallinn airport to Tartu.
There are every hour buses (at airport they are 5 minutes later). The bus ticket can be purchased from the web ( http://www.tpilet.ee/en ),
preferable payment method is a credit card. In the link one should write "Tallinna lennujaam" (Tallinn Airport) as the starting point and "Tartu" as destination. You can print your ticket using the bar code or ticket number in the self-service ticket offices at the bus stations of Tallinn and Tartu during their opening hours. Additional instructions can be found here.


Please contact organizers.


There is no registration fee. The conference will start at 9am on Wednesday, May 1, and the last session will end at 11.15 on Friday, May 3.
