The scientific researcher of the European Centre for Soft Computing (Spain), Enric Trillas (Barcelona 1940), has won the prestigious Kampé de Fériet Award 2008. The award was presented to him during the International Congress "Information Processing and Management of Uncertainty in Knowledge Based Systems", which took place in Malaga (Spain) from the 23rd to the 27th of June.
The Kampé de Fériet Award was created in 1992 and, since then, awards scientists who have exceptionally contributed “to the field of information processing and management of uncertainty”, every two years. Among the previous recipients are Ilya Prigogine (Nobel Prize in Chemistry, 1977), Kenneth Arrow (Nobel Prize in Economic Science, 1972) y Daniel Kahneman (Nobel Prize in Economic Science, 2002).
Enric Trillas has been Professor at UPM University (Madrid) and member of several International scientific committees, as well as director of some Spanish public institutions, such as the Spanish National Research Council (1984-1988) and the National Institute for Aerospace and Technology (1989-1995) among others.
Professor Trillas was the pioneer of Fuzzy Logic in Spain and is internationally well known. In fact the European Pioneer Award was presented to him by the European Society for Fuzzy Logic and Technologies in 1999 and the Fuzzy Systems Pioneer Award by IEEE in 2005. During the last year Enric Trillas has been laureate with other important prizes, such as the Medal of the Polish Academy of Science, by Professor Janusz Kacprzyk.
Currently, Enric Trillas is the co-head of a research unit at the European Centre of Soft Computing, an advanced research and development centre in intelligent systems.

On the way to an intelligent laboratory, physicists from Innsbruck and Vienna present an artificial agent that autonomously designs quantum experiments. In initial experiments, the system has independently (re)discovered experimental techniques that are nowadays standard in modern quantum optical laboratories. This shows how machines could play a more creative role in research in the future.

At the JEC World Composite Show in Paris in March 2018, the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT will be focusing on the latest trends and innovations in laser machining of composites. Among other things, researchers at the booth shared with the Aachen Center for Integrative Lightweight Production (AZL) will demonstrate how lasers can be used for joining, structuring, cutting and drilling composite materials.
No other industry has attracted as much public attention to composite materials as the automotive industry, which along with the aerospace industry is a driver...
Scientists at Tokyo Institute of Technology (Tokyo Tech) and Tohoku University have developed high-quality GFO epitaxial films and systematically investigated their ferroelectric and ferromagnetic properties. They also demonstrated the room-temperature magnetocapacitance effects of these GFO thin films.
Multiferroic materials show magnetically driven ferroelectricity. They are attracting increasing attention because of their fascinating properties such as...
