Seminars at MPS

Interested visitors are very welcome to join in all seminars held and talks given at the MPS. The presentations are mainly given in English. More detailed information can be found at the seminars' pages.

Invited guest scientists of other institutes report on the successes and results of their research in institute seminars and colloquia.

PhD students of the International Max Planck Research School (IMPRS) present their work in S3 seminars.

In the Seminars about Planets and Comets, as well as in the Seminars about the Sun and sunlike Stars, the scientists of the respective departments report on the latest results and progress made in their projects and introduce new missions. All seminars are concluded with a short discussion or a questions-and-answers sessions.

Beyond the 8 planets around the sun more than 3000 planets have been found around other stars. One of them is in orbit around Proxima Centauri at a distance of just 4 light years, others are as far as thousands of light years away. Let's have a look at how these so-called exoplanets have been detected, how their physical and orbital properties compare to the architecture of the solar system, and what kind of discoveries we can expect during our lifetimes.

One of Open Science’s visions is to increase the quality and efficiency of scientific research by making research data, computer code, and other resources created in the research process, publicly available. This vision critically depends on the willingness of research groups to share. In this talk we will introduce an ongoing research project of the Junior Research Group ‘Field Specific Forms of Open Science’, that seeks to inform science policy on how field-specific factors influence decisions of researchers to share or not to share. The project employs a multi-method approach including ethnographic field studies, expert interviews, bibliometric mapping, and online surveys in order to examine differences in sharing across research fields in biology, chemistry, and physics. Our particular focus is on how decisions to share are influenced by the way knowledge is produced (the kind of research problems addressed, methods used, the type of empirical objects studied).
