Arnold Sommerfeld Center for Theoretical Physics (ASC)
The Arnold Sommerfeld Center for Theoretical Physics is an international contact center for theoretical physics that offers scientists from all over the world and all fields of theoretical physics a forum where they can debate, share knowledge and collaborate. It also promotes networking with other colleagues in Munich and junior scientists. Keeping with the legacy of Arnold Sommerfeld, the ASC is dedicated to promoting graduate studies, elite programs for young scientists, the internationalization of education and scientific cooperation. It fulfills this mission with a diverse array of advanced lectures, seminars and workshops led by visiting senior scientists.
"From the very beginning, I have striven and spared no effort to cultivate a fertile soil for theoretical physics in Munich by conducting seminars and colloquia." (Sommerfeld, "Autobiographische Skizze")
