Honorary Conference Chairman
Gerhard Ertl, Nobel Laureate
This conference series was originally initiated in Berlin, where a long-standing tradition of research on complexity and self-organization in various fields of science exists. Cooperation between both parts of the city started already before the fall of the Wall, eventually leading to the establishment of the Collaborative Research Center SFB 555 with Werner Ebeling as its chairman. In 2000 the first symposium "Engineering of Chemical Complexity" took place with about 50 participants. Its success prompted continuation every two years until 2008. After the SFB 555 program ended, a new organizational framework for the ongoing activities was created by the foundation of the Berlin Center for Studies of Complex Chemical Systems. From 2011 onwards, the "Engineering of Chemical Complexity" conference grew considerably in size and moved to different national and international sites. After meetings in Warnemünde, Munich, and Barcelona, the conference will now return to the Berlin-Bandenburg area for its 10th edition. We are delighted to welcome all participants to our lakeside conference venue at the Templiner See in Potsdam and we are looking forward to interesting and stimulating presentations and discussions.
