The 20th International Conference on Multimedia in Physics Teaching and Learning will take place at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München – the University of Munich, Germany.
As one of Europe’s leading research universities, LMU Munich is committed to the highest international standards of excellence in research and teaching.
The University began with four faculties in Ingolstadt, where it contributed to the flowering of German Humanism and played a major role in the Counter-Reformation. Prior to the move to Landshut over three hundred years later, the growing influence of the Enlightenment had made itself felt. The second move at the beginning of the 19th century, this time to the heart of the monarchy’s residential city of Munich, brought an expansion of the faculties and a huge advance in the sciences.
The University‘s particular importance for research is evidenced by 14 Nobel laureates who completed their award-winning work at LMU Munich.
