German – Arab Workshop to Combat Diabetes – Experiences and Telematic Innovations, Dubai UAE

The German Federal Ministry of Health and the Ministry of Economics of the Northern Province of Mecklenburg - Vorpommern cordially invite you to attend a workshop informing about best healthcare practices and diabetes management from Germany. The workshop is organized at the occasion of the Arab Health 2012 on Monday, 23 January 2012 at 4.00 PM at the Shangri-La Hotel (Sheikh Zayed Road), Arjawan+Yasmin (1st floor) in Dubai.

About 366 million people worldwide are suffering from diabetes. The diabetes rate in the UAE is among the highest in the world with currently 19.2%. The Emirate of Abu Dhabi alone is spending more than AED 1 billion per year to treat diabetes and diseases connected with it.

Diabetes treatment programs have started worldwide and focus on prevention and personalized, evidence-based treatment, utilizing clinical practice guidelines and innovative technologies in diabetes care. Germany has strong expertise in the field of diabetes treatment and flagship projects like the Personalized Diabetes Management System of the Institute of Applied Diabetes Research Karlsburg (KADIS) are internationally groundbreaking.

The “German – Arab Workshop to Combat Diabetes – Experiences and Telematic Innovations” aims to inform healthcare professionals from the UAE and Gulf region about best practices from Germany and is designed to be an interactive exchange among local and international healthcare experts to show solutions for the effective treatment of a growing number of diabetes patients.

After the workshop you are cordially invited to join us for a networking reception in the foyer.

The seminar will cover the following topics:
• Worldwide Epidemic of Diabetes Mellitus: Challenge for Healthcare Authorities
• The Challenge of Diabetes Mellitus in Arabic Countries
• Cardiac and Vascular Complications of Chronic Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus
• New Approaches to Treatment and Perspectives for Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus
• Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus in Children and Adolescents: Epidemic and Prospects
• Telematic Applications in Personalized Diabetes Management
• Economic Impact of Diabetes Treatment

Im Focus: New 3-D wiring technique brings scalable quantum computers closer to reality

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...

Im Focus: Scientists develop a semiconductor nanocomposite material that moves in response to light

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...

Im Focus: Diamonds aren't forever: Sandia, Harvard team create first quantum computer bridge

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...

Im Focus: New Products - Highlights of COMPAMED 2016

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...

Im Focus: Ultra-thin ferroelectric material for next-generation electronics

'Ferroelectric' materials can switch between different states of electrical polarization in response to an external electric field. This flexibility means they show promise for many applications, for example in electronic devices and computer memory. Current ferroelectric materials are highly valued for their thermal and chemical stability and rapid electro-mechanical responses, but creating a material that is scalable down to the tiny sizes needed for technologies like silicon-based semiconductors (Si-based CMOS) has proven challenging.

Now, Hiroshi Funakubo and co-workers at the Tokyo Institute of Technology, in collaboration with researchers across Japan, have conducted experiments to...
