The famous "Duine Finger" was on display at the workshop.

   The first Mainz-Lanna Meeting took place on the 24th -25th of March 2014. These meetings bring together an informal gathering of collaborators working on different aspects of spin phenomena theory from ab-initio studies to phenomenological modeling.

  Researchers from the Czech Republic, Germany, USA, and England gathered over a two day meeting to discuss future challenges in spin phenomena theory and how to tackle them through collaborative research.
