International workshop   


Vielberth Lecture Hall H24,
Universität Regensburg, Regensburg,           



International Workshop 2024 on                                                   

                  "Emergent Relativistic Effects in Condensed Matter"

This informal workshop will cover new developments in the physics of 2D materials, topological insulators, superconductivity, as well as hybrid systems and nanostructures. Emphasis will be given to effective relativistic phenomena stemming from spin-orbit coupling and/or Dirac-like band structures, manifested in various electronic, transport, optical, magnetic, and dynamical effects.

The workshop is funded by the German Science Foundation (DFG) via the Collaborative Research Center SFB 1277 (https://www.sfb1277-regensburg.de ). It will take place in Regensburg, a UNESCO world heritage site. Founded in 179 by the roman emperor Marcus Aurelius Regensburg is a historic city in a unique state of preservation, living witness to two thousand years of rich and colourful history.

How to get to Regensburg


Map of the campus, how to get to Universität Regensburg


Arriving by car: 

Address for route planner: Universitätsstraße 31, 93053 Regensburg or follow the link.

If you are coming via Autobahn A3 (from Nuremberg or Passau), take the exit "Universität/Klinikum", follow the signs first towards "Universität" and then take a left following the sign to "Bio Park". Take the first right to find two parking garages. Additional parking can be found e.g. here or here.

If you come via Autobahn A 93, please continue towards the intersection "Autobahnkreuz Regensburg" and change to A3, direction Passau/Linz/Regensburg Ost. Then follow the instructions above.


Arriving by train:

Exit the station building towards the city centre. As you exit, you'll see a small park and a yellow church across the street, to your right. Cross the street, enter the park and pass the little yellow church. The bus stop for buses to the University is at the corner to your right, immediately at the beginning of the bridge ("Galgenberger Brücke").

Either take

a) bus line 6, direction "Universität/Klinikum". Get off at the stop "Universität"

b) bus line 11, direction "Universität/ Burgweinting/Hermann-Höcherl-Strasse". Get off at the stop "Universität".


Arriving by plane:

There is no airport in Regensburg. The closest one is Munich Airport but you can also fly to Nuremberg or Frankfurt. Trains leave regularly from all the latter airports to Regensburg. At www.bahn.de you will find schedules, connections and prices.
