Participating Nobel Laureates in the pre-conference: Peter Agre (Nobel Prize in Chemistry 2003) och Frank Wilczek (Nobel Prize in Physics 2004). Also Dr. Angela Lindner, Head of communications for one of the Nobel Laureates in Physics 2007, Peter Grünberg, will take part.
The pre-conference at the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences (RSAS) is open for invited press and participants in the main PCST-10 conference (in Öresund 25-27 June), and will give a Swedish perspective to international science communication. The announcement of the Nobel Prize and the Sveriges Riksbank Prize in Memory of Alfred Nobel in early October each year is, arguably, the major news event originating from Sweden.
Consequently, the associated communication process provides an excellent case study and a good opportunity to discuss the "why's and how's" of contemporary science communication.
Venue: Beijersalen, RSAS, Lilla Frescativägen 4A, Stockholm, Sweden (ca. 5 km north of Stockholm C).
Time: Monday 23 June 2008, at 9.00 am-3.00 pm. Coffee and fruits are served from 8.30 am.
Lunch: Journalists who has registered at the LATEST Tuesday 18 June will be served free lunch. Please register to the Press Officer at the RSAS.
Business School, Danish Agency for Science Technology and Innovation, The Kavli Prize and Stiftelsen Riksbankens Jubileumsfond.
Please register and apply for interviews to the Press Officer at the RSAS: Erik Huss, +46 8 673 95 44, +46 70 673 96 50, firstname.lastname@example.org
PCST (Public Communication of Science and Technology) is a global network of communicators, journalists, scientists and other professionals interested in science communication. The network started in France in 1989 and promotes enhanced dialogue between groups engaged in research and communication through support of new ideas and methodology, organization of recurrent world conferences and electronic meeting places.

Researchers from the University of Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Aarhus in Denmark, have synthesized a new superconducting material by growing a few layers of an antiferromagnetic transition-metal chalcogenide on a bismuth-based topological insulator, both being non-superconducting materials.
While superconductivity and magnetism are generally believed to be mutually exclusive, surprisingly, in this new material, superconducting correlations...
Laser-driving of semimetals allows creating novel quasiparticle states within condensed matter systems and switching between different states on ultrafast time scales
Studying properties of fundamental particles in condensed matter systems is a promising approach to quantum field theory. Quasiparticles offer the opportunity...
Among the general public, solar thermal energy is currently associated with dark blue, rectangular collectors on building roofs. Technologies are needed for aesthetically high quality architecture which offer the architect more room for manoeuvre when it comes to low- and plus-energy buildings. With the “ArKol” project, researchers at Fraunhofer ISE together with partners are currently developing two façade collectors for solar thermal energy generation, which permit a high degree of design flexibility: a strip collector for opaque façade sections and a solar thermal blind for transparent sections. The current state of the two developments will be presented at the BAU 2017 trade fair.
As part of the “ArKol – development of architecturally highly integrated façade collectors with heat pipes” project, Fraunhofer ISE together with its partners...
