Announcement of Ernst-Otto Czempiel Award 2012 by the Peace Research Institute Frankfurt

17.02.2012
The award will be given to the best postdoctoral monograph in peace research published within the past two years - nomination deadline is 30 April 2012

The Peace Research Institute Frankfurt (PRIF) invites submissions for the Ernst-Otto Czempiel Award for peace research. The award, in honour of the former director of PRIF, is endowed with 5,000 Euros and will be given for the best postdoctoral monograph published in the field of peace research in 2010 or 2011. Book versions of Ph.D. theses and books by authors of the age of 45 or older at the date of publication are excluded.

Nominations and self-nominations are possible. Every nomination should contain the name, full address and e-mail address of the author and the title of the book. In the case of self-nomination, the application should in addition contain a CV, a list of publications, and a copy of the book (if possible in electronic form). The nomination deadline is 30 April 2012.

The winner will be selected by a jury consisting of Prof. Dr Eva Senghaas-Knobloch, Prof. Dr Dirk Messner and Prof. Dr Harald Müller. The award ceremony will take place during PRIF’s Annual Conference, on 23 November 2012, in Frankfurt/Germany.

Im Focus: Can we see monkeys from space? Emerging technologies to map biodiversity

An international team of scientists has proposed a new multi-disciplinary approach in which an array of new technologies will allow us to map biodiversity and the risks that wildlife is facing at the scale of whole landscapes. The findings are published in Nature Ecology and Evolution. This international research is led by the Kunming Institute of Zoology from China, University of East Anglia, University of Leicester and the Leibniz Institute for Zoo and Wildlife Research.

Using a combination of satellite and ground data, the team proposes that it is now possible to map biodiversity with an accuracy that has not been previously...

Im Focus: Climate satellite: Tracking methane with robust laser technology

Heatwaves in the Arctic, longer periods of vegetation in Europe, severe floods in West Africa – starting in 2021, scientists want to explore the emissions of the greenhouse gas methane with the German-French satellite MERLIN. This is made possible by a new robust laser system of the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT in Aachen, which achieves unprecedented measurement accuracy.

Methane is primarily the result of the decomposition of organic matter. The gas has a 25 times greater warming potential than carbon dioxide, but is not as...

Im Focus: How protons move through a fuel cell

Hydrogen is regarded as the energy source of the future: It is produced with solar power and can be used to generate heat and electricity in fuel cells. Empa researchers have now succeeded in decoding the movement of hydrogen ions in crystals – a key step towards more efficient energy conversion in the hydrogen industry of tomorrow.

As charge carriers, electrons and ions play the leading role in electrochemical energy storage devices and converters such as batteries and fuel cells. Proton...

Im Focus: A unique data centre for cosmological simulations

Scientists from the Excellence Cluster Universe at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität Munich have establised "Cosmowebportal", a unique data centre for cosmological simulations located at the Leibniz Supercomputing Centre (LRZ) of the Bavarian Academy of Sciences. The complete results of a series of large hydrodynamical cosmological simulations are available, with data volumes typically exceeding several hundred terabytes. Scientists worldwide can interactively explore these complex simulations via a web interface and directly access the results.

With current telescopes, scientists can observe our Universe’s galaxies and galaxy clusters and their distribution along an invisible cosmic web. From the...
