Past Rutenfranz lectures

Professor Dr Josef Rutenfranz was the leader of the group of eight scientists who conceived PWP in a café in Berlin in 1967. He organised and chaired the first PWP Symposium in Dortmund in 1968 and remained the unofficial ‘Chairman of the Board’ until his untimely death, at the age of 60, on 28 February 1989. At PWP XV in Hungary later that year it was decided, in his honour, that each subsequent PWP Symposium should begin with the Josef Rutenfranz Lecture.  The following lists the lecturers and their presentations:
