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: In best circles: First integrated circuit from self-assembled polymer

For the first time, a team of researchers at the Max-Planck Institute (MPI) for Polymer Research in Mainz, Germany, has succeeded in making an integrated circuit (IC) from just a monolayer of a semiconducting polymer via a bottom-up, self-assembly approach.

In the self-assembly process, the semiconducting polymer arranges itself into an ordered monolayer in a transistor. The transistors are binary switches used...

Im Focus: Demonstration of a single molecule piezoelectric effect

Breakthrough provides a new concept of the design of molecular motors, sensors and electricity generators at nanoscale

Im Focus: Hybrid optics bring color imaging using ultrathin metalenses into focus

For photographers and scientists, lenses are lifesavers. They reflect and refract light, making possible the imaging systems that drive discovery through the microscope and preserve history through cameras.

But today's glass-based lenses are bulky and resist miniaturization. Next-generation technologies, such as ultrathin cameras or tiny microscopes, require...

Im Focus: Stem cell divisions in the adult brain seen for the first time

Scientists from the University of Zurich have succeeded for the first time in tracking individual stem cells and their neuronal progeny over months within the intact adult brain. This study sheds light on how new neurons are produced throughout life.

The generation of new nerve cells was once thought to taper off at the end of embryonic development. However, recent research has shown that the adult brain...

Im Focus: Interference as a new method for cooling quantum devices

Theoretical physicists propose to use negative interference to control heat flow in quantum devices. Study published in Physical Review Letters

Quantum computer parts are sensitive and need to be cooled to very low temperatures. Their tiny size makes them particularly susceptible to a temperature...
