On October 18-19, 2012, the International Conference on Highlights and Trends in Solar Energy, Solar Summit Freiburg, will be held at the “Konzerthaus” conference center in Freiburg.
The conference will provide an overview of solar energy conversion technologies. In addition to the latest research and development, discussions will also cover current market and political trends. This year, the focus of the conference is sustainable urban development, under the headline “The Future Sustainable City”.
The “Solar Summit Freiburg 2012” program is divided into the following subjects: Intelligent transformation of our energy supply, the focus subject “The Future Sustainable City” and trends in solar technology, such as heating and cooling, storage technologies and photovoltaics. Renowned international speakers and experts from the Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems ISE will present the topics and discuss them with participants.
“Once again, we are looking forward to lively discussions and networking with participants from a variety of fields, such as industry and politics, research and technology, as well as investors, banks and the media,” says Prof. Eicke R. Weber, scientific chair of the conference and Director of Fraunhofer ISE.
“The Solar Summit is an excellent platform which allows all the sectors involved in the energy revolution to carry out the vital task of sharing their knowledge and ideas; Fraunhofer ISE’s portfolio covers a wide range of these subjects.”
The Solar Summit Freiburg conferences are hosted by the Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems ISE, supported by FWTM and Messe München, and organised by PSE AG from Freiburg. For more information please visit http://www.solar-summit-2012.org

Researchers from the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) at the University of Waterloo led the development of a new extensible wiring technique capable of controlling superconducting quantum bits, representing a significant step towards to the realization of a scalable quantum computer.
"The quantum socket is a wiring method that uses three-dimensional wires based on spring-loaded pins to address individual qubits," said Jeremy Béjanin, a PhD...
In a paper in Scientific Reports, a research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute describes a novel light-activated phenomenon that could become the basis for applications as diverse as microscopic robotic grippers and more efficient solar cells.
A research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) has developed a revolutionary, light-activated semiconductor nanocomposite material that can be used...
By forcefully embedding two silicon atoms in a diamond matrix, Sandia researchers have demonstrated for the first time on a single chip all the components needed to create a quantum bridge to link quantum computers together.
"People have already built small quantum computers," says Sandia researcher Ryan Camacho. "Maybe the first useful one won't be a single giant quantum computer...
COMPAMED has become the leading international marketplace for suppliers of medical manufacturing. The trade fair, which takes place every November and is co-located to MEDICA in Dusseldorf, has been steadily growing over the past years and shows that medical technology remains a rapidly growing market.
In 2016, the joint pavilion by the IVAM Microtechnology Network, the Product Market “High-tech for Medical Devices”, will be located in Hall 8a again and will...
