Who stands the negotiating test the best? Which college team uses the most effective negotiating strategies? Which team has the most sophisticated arguments and the most skilled communicators? The answers to these questions - and more - will be revealed at The Negotiation Challenge (TNC), taking place at HHL from 11-14 March 2010.
Teams from renowned business schools, colleges and universities all over the world have battled through the early rounds and in March business and law students will finally face each other in Leipzig. The list of participating schools so far is: Aarhus Business School (Denmark), Alfa University Belgrade (Serbia), Belarus State University (Belarus), HHL - Leipzig Graduate School of Management (Germany), IESEG School of Management (France), University of California Hastings (USA), Bucerius Law School/WHU (Germany), Harvard Law School, Georgetown Law (both USA), European Master in Law and Economics, National Law Institute University Bhopal and National Law School India Bangalore (both India).

International exchange in striking venues in Leipzig
True to the motto "lead by example", TNC is about giving students a framework in which they can test themselves by competitively negotiating in teams against others and learning in the process. TNC organizing committee member Michael Römer says: "We've managed to secure Leipzig Central Stadium, the Moritzbastei, the Opera House and the Old Town Hall as venues for the world negotiating championships, and the topics being negotiated in each venue will match the surroundings. The final will be particularly special; it will be held on 13 March in the Bundesverwaltungsgericht, the Federal Administrative Court, which is one of Germany's five supreme courts."
The first two rounds of negotiations will be held on 12 March in HHL's City Campus and in the Central Stadium. Teams that have existed until that point will be broken up. "We want to confront the students with unexpected situations, just as happens out in the real world. And mixing up the teams means that the participants get to know more people," explains Dr Remigiusz Smolinski, Country Manager at mobile.international GmbH and member of TNC jury and co-initiator of the competition.
On 13 March, the participants will go through two more qualifying rounds in their original teams. These rounds will be held in the Moritzbastei and the Opera House, deciding the two best teams to go forward to the final to battle for the title. The jury is composed of lawyers and entrepreneurs as well as professors from HHL and other European schools. The final will take place in the imposing Bundesverwaltungsgericht, beginning at 17.00. The winners are awarded a trophy and the title "The Great Negotiator 2010."
About The Negotiation Challenge (TNC)
The Negotiation Challenge was created in 2007 as part of a joint project run by students and doctoral students at HHL and Harvard Law School. HHL recognized the importance of teaching negotiating skills very early on and with TNC was one of the pioneers in the subject in Europe.Weitere Informationen:

The formation of stars in distant galaxies is still largely unexplored. For the first time, astron-omers at the University of Geneva have now been able to closely observe a star system six billion light-years away. In doing so, they are confirming earlier simulations made by the University of Zurich. One special effect is made possible by the multiple reflections of images that run through the cosmos like a snake.
Today, astronomers have a pretty accurate idea of how stars were formed in the recent cosmic past. But do these laws also apply to older galaxies? For around a...
Just because someone is smart and well-motivated doesn't mean he or she can learn the visual skills needed to excel at tasks like matching fingerprints, interpreting medical X-rays, keeping track of aircraft on radar displays or forensic face matching.
That is the implication of a new study which shows for the first time that there is a broad range of differences in people's visual ability and that these...
Computer Tomography (CT) is a standard procedure in hospitals, but so far, the technology has not been suitable for imaging extremely small objects. In PNAS, a team from the Technical University of Munich (TUM) describes a Nano-CT device that creates three-dimensional x-ray images at resolutions up to 100 nanometers. The first test application: Together with colleagues from the University of Kassel and Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht the researchers analyzed the locomotory system of a velvet worm.
During a CT analysis, the object under investigation is x-rayed and a detector measures the respective amount of radiation absorbed from various angles....
The quantum world is fragile; error correction codes are needed to protect the information stored in a quantum object from the deteriorating effects of noise. Quantum physicists in Innsbruck have developed a protocol to pass quantum information between differently encoded building blocks of a future quantum computer, such as processors and memories. Scientists may use this protocol in the future to build a data bus for quantum computers. The researchers have published their work in the journal Nature Communications.
Future quantum computers will be able to solve problems where conventional computers fail today. We are still far away from any large-scale implementation,...
