EGU Media Alert: EGU General Assembly Vienna 2005

28.01.2005


European Geosciences Union, General Assembly


Vienna, Austria, 24 – 29 April 2005

For the first time, the EGU will hold its General Assembly in Vienna, Austria. A considerable attendance from the eastern European countries is expected and EGU 2005 promises to become a bigger event even than last year’s in Nice. So far, 10,000 paper and poster abstracts have been submitted, against 8,000 last year.

This will be the largest and most prominent event in the earth and planetary sciences held in Europe today. Many sessions will be dedicated to subjects of great societal importance, such as geohazards and climate change.



The EGU General Assembly brings together geoscientists from all over Europe and the rest of the world into one meeting covering all disciplines of the Earth and Planetary Sciences: geology, geomorphology, geochemistry, geophysics, geobiology and hazards research alike.

As EGU 2005 will be the first international science conference after the December 2004 Asian tsunami disaster, a special Union Symposium will be held presenting the latest reports from scientists who have been working in the area before and after the event.

Venue

The EGU General Assembly 2005 will be held at the Austria Center Vienna (ACV) in Vienna, Austria, from 24 – 29 April 2005. On Sunday, 24 April, registration will start at 14:00, and there will be an Opening & Union Award Ceremony in Hall A, 16:30 - 18:00, followed by an Open Reception in Foyer A, 18:30 – 20:30.

Press registration

Press registration - free for journalists, science writers and public information officers - is now open. Follow the links below.

Im Focus: Can the immune system be boosted against Staphylococcus aureus by delivery of messenger RNA?

Staphylococcus aureus is a feared pathogen (MRSA, multi-resistant S. aureus) due to frequent resistances against many antibiotics, especially in hospital infections. Researchers at the Paul-Ehrlich-Institut have identified immunological processes that prevent a successful immune response directed against the pathogenic agent. The delivery of bacterial proteins with RNA adjuvant or messenger RNA (mRNA) into immune cells allows the re-direction of the immune response towards an active defense against S. aureus. This could be of significant importance for the development of an effective vaccine. PLOS Pathogens has published these research results online on 25 May 2017.

Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus) is a bacterium that colonizes by far more than half of the skin and the mucosa of adults, usually without causing infections....

Im Focus: A quantum walk of photons

Physicists from the University of Würzburg are capable of generating identical looking single light particles at the push of a button. Two new studies now demonstrate the potential this method holds.

The quantum computer has fuelled the imagination of scientists for decades: It is based on fundamentally different phenomena than a conventional computer....

Im Focus: Turmoil in sluggish electrons’ existence

An international team of physicists has monitored the scattering behaviour of electrons in a non-conducting material in real-time. Their insights could be beneficial for radiotherapy.

We can refer to electrons in non-conducting materials as ‘sluggish’. Typically, they remain fixed in a location, deep inside an atomic composite. It is hence...

Im Focus: Wafer-thin Magnetic Materials Developed for Future Quantum Technologies

Two-dimensional magnetic structures are regarded as a promising material for new types of data storage, since the magnetic properties of individual molecular building blocks can be investigated and modified. For the first time, researchers have now produced a wafer-thin ferrimagnet, in which molecules with different magnetic centers arrange themselves on a gold surface to form a checkerboard pattern. Scientists at the Swiss Nanoscience Institute at the University of Basel and the Paul Scherrer Institute published their findings in the journal Nature Communications.

Ferrimagnets are composed of two centers which are magnetized at different strengths and point in opposing directions. Two-dimensional, quasi-flat ferrimagnets...
