These biannual conferences will allow young researchers to discuss topics at the frontier of scientific research with the leading experts in the field. They will provide a forum for establishing new contacts and facilitate the development of collaborative networks throughout Europe and the rest of the world.
The unique format of these ESF-VR-FORMAS Conferences on Global Change Research combines talks by high-ranking speakers with an informal exchange of ideas. Scientists meet for four full days in and out of the lecture hall to debate the latest developments in their field and to establish new collaborations thus creating scientific synergy.
ESF-VR-FORMAS Conference 2007: Focussing on the Arctic Region
On 13-17 October, the first ESF-VR-FORMAS Conferences on Global Change Research is taking place in Nynäshamn, Sweden. This year, focus will be set on the ‘Role of the Arctic Region’. The conference aims to contribute to Arctic research in the International Polar Year 2007. The sessions include scenarios for future climate change, impacts on life, examples of ad-aptation, and what can be learned about past climates and the rate of change from studying ice cores. This four day long international conference will also highlight the chances of developing models for prediction of the future, necessary for decision making.

Siemens scientists have developed new kinds of ceramics in which they can embed transformers.
The new development allows power supply transformers to be reduced to one fifth of their current size so that the normally separate switched-mode power supply units of light-emitting diodes can be integrated into the module's heat sink.
The new technology was developed in cooperation with industrial and research partners who ...
Cheaper clean-energy technologies could be made possible thanks to a new discovery.
Led by Raymond Schaak, a professor of chemistry at Penn State University, research team members have found that an important chemical reaction that generates hydrogen from water is effectively triggered -- or catalyzed -- by a nanoparticle composed of nickel and phosphorus, two inexpensive elements that are abundant on Earth. ...
The Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT generated a lot of interest at the LASER World of Photonics 2013 trade fair with its numerous industrial laser technology innovations.
Its highlights included beam sources and manufacturing processes for ultrashort laser pulses as well as ways to systematically optimize machining processes using computer simulations. There was even a specialist booth at the fair dedicated to the revolutionary technological potential of digital photonic production.
Now in its fortieth year, LASER World ...
It's not reruns of "The Jetsons", but researchers working at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have developed a new microscopy technique that uses a process similar to how an old tube television produces a picture—cathodoluminescence—to image nanoscale features.
Combining the best features of optical and scanning electron microscopy, the fast, versatile, and high-resolution technique allows scientists to view surface and subsurface features potentially as small as 10 nanometers in size.
The new microscopy technique, described in the journal AIP Advances,* uses a beam of electrons to excite a specially ...
