June 18, 2015
On June 18–19, 2015, it’s time again for the annual Fellows Meeting in Berlin, which will bring together an expected 60 fellows and alumni of the Schering Stiftung from the fields of biology, medicine, chemistry, the arts and culture. This year’s topic will be “Analog & Digital – Simulations in Art & Science.” The meeting offers participants the opportunity to stay in touch with the Foundation and with each other, exchange experiences, and gain insights into different ways of thinking also after the conclusion of the actual funding period.
In keeping with the Foundation’s funding priorities, the Fellows Meeting is designed as an interdisciplinary event, so as to appeal to both scientists and artists. The topic was selected by the alumni them-selves. A multi-disciplinary team that was formed to prepare the meeting chose the topic and developed an ambitious program for the event.
There will be three introductory lectures, in which Dr. Sybille Anderl, astrophysicist and science journalist, Prof. Dr. Cornelius Frömmel from the University Medical Center Göttingen, and Prof. Dr. Claus Pias from the Leuphana University of Lüneburg will describe how simulations have gained a foothold in both art and science, how they are used, and what opportunities and challenges exist in this field. The invited speakers and the lecture topics promise exciting discussions. As part of a workshop entitled “Crowd-Pong: Everyone versus Computer,” which was developed at the “Image Knowledge Gestaltung” cluster of excellence at Berlin’s Humboldt University, the participants themselves become part of a simulation. Subsequently, alumni have the opportunity to present and discuss with participants the use of simulations in their respective fields.
Evening highlights include a musical performance by Ruslan Vilensky, violoncellist and former (Schering) Fellow of the Orchestra Academy of the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra, as well as a per-formance lecture by the Berlin-based artist Agnes Meyer-Brandis who will present her project “Moon Geese.”
