The 130th Assembly of the Society of German Natural Scientists and Physicians was chaired by Professor Wolfgang Wahlster and took place from Friday 14 September to Monday 17 September 2018 in the state capital and university city of Saarbrücken.
Each GDNÄ meeting is under a general theme. 2018 in Saarbrücken, it was “Digitisation in the sciences – from structures and processes”. Researchers from different disciplines presented current developments and put them up for discussion. The programme was complemented by panel discussions on socio-political topics. Pupils and young academics found special offers tailored to their needs. The conference was not only open to scientists, but also to anyone interested in current information and stimulating discussions on science and medicine.
