Dear reader,

The reviewing and evaluation process of the MSE 2016 is completed and we would like to thank you very much for more than 1,000 submission from more than 53 countries. This result confirms that the MSE is established as one of the most important English speaking congresses in Europe.

The program structure of the MSE 2016 is now finalized - please have a look on our website:

During the three days of the MSE with its more than 120 sessions and over 700 lectures another focus will be the poster exhibition with already more than 220 submissions as of today.

A great opportunity for students and doctoral candidates who strive to attract the attention of the international expert community to their research findings and to network within the poster session.

Beside the extensive scientific program I want to point out some further exciting highlights of the MSE. The legendary MSE party is already an established part of the MSE. For 2016 we furthermore invited two professional basketball players of the Fraport Skyliners, each of whom will support one team at our US-German Basketball game. The basketball game will be accompanied by an American BBQ. Additionally, you can prove your skill and endurance at the bull riding competition.

With special appreciation I would like to draw your attention to this years Nachwuchsforum. With a lot of engagement the DGM-youth chapter and the Nachwuchsausschuss organized an outstanding program - special thanks to all organizers. I would like to ask all professors to bring your students, student assistants and doctoral candidates with you to the Nachwuchsforum. We are looking forward to welcome you personally at a successful and inspiring MSE 2016 in Darmstadt.

Best regards,

Frank O.R. Fischer
