||The IAP2014 conference, International Conference on Interfaces against Pollution (IAP), took
place in Leeuwarden, Netherlands, from the 25th till 28th of May 2014 and offers me the
opportunity to get in contact with scientists from all across Europe or even the whole world.
Presenting my work with the title Differences in the amino acid adsorption on relaxed and
unrelaxed magnetite-(111) and hematite-(001) surfacesto the outstanding experts who visited the
conference, allows me to discuss my intermediate results with them. Especially during the social
events and the poster presentations I got in discussion about further ideas or got a lot of suggestions
how to continue with my work. Additionally it was very interesting to see which problems other
groups have to deal with and how they solve them.
Altogether it was very helpful for me as a PhD-student to join a conference like the IAP2014.
