14th IFF Science Days in Magdeburg: Where Business and Research Meet

25.05.2011
Digital engineering, logistics and robotics: This year too, the Fraunhofer IFF’s annual research conference will again be devoted to current key issues and innovations in industry and research at three professional conferences held in parallel. The institute in Magdeburg is again expecting hundreds of guests from business and research at this meeting of experts on June 28 to 30, 2011.

How important will the digital factory be for industrial production? What technologies are enabling us to work hand-in-hand with robots in manufacturing and the world around us? Can we make our global logistics operations even more secure, reliable and efficient? Experts and prominent guests from industry and research will be discussing current issues and development trends in a wide variety of sectors at numerous events and workshops during the 14th IFF Science Days in Magdeburg.

Focus on Digital Technologies for Efficient Production
One focus will be digital technologies. Their full integration in production is becoming an increasingly crucial factor in corporate competition. Therefore, this year’s “Digital Engineering” conference will focus on the “Digital Factory in the Product and Production Equipment Life Cycle”. Among other issues, means of profitably implementing digital and virtual tools throughout the entire industrial chain of operations will be examined. What advances have been made in the development and implementation of new software tools and what must companies do to profit from them?
Logistics Days: “Secure, Reliable and Sustainable Logistics"
During the IFF Science Days, the Fraunhofer Institute for Factory Operation and Automation IFF and the Institute of Logistics and Material Handling Systems at Otto von Guericke University Magdeburg will be jointly hosting the “Magdeburg Logistics Days”. This year’s motto is “Secure, Reliable and Sustainable Logistics”. Among other things, speakers and attendees will be discussing the challenges of “Future Mobility” and solutions for “Energy Efficient Infrastructures”. Another focus will be the opportunities and potentials for the development of new intelligent localization and navigation solutions at the Galileo Test Bed that opened in Saxony-Anhalt last year.
Safe Human-Robot Interaction
The “Safe Human-Robot Interaction” conference on June 30, 2011 will focus on one of the key issues of current research in robotics, namely direct interaction and cooperation between humans and robots. Discussion will especially focus on new safety concepts and technologies, which affect the safety and routine usability of robots in workplaces shared with humans in the industrial, domestic or healthcare sectors, for instance.
Cooperation in Plant Engineering
The Cooperation in Plant Engineering Industry Working Group will also be convening during the 14th IFF Science Days. At these regularly held meetings, representatives of small and medium-sized enterprises exchange their views on and experiences with methods and trends of collaborative partnerships as a factor for success in plant manufacturing.

Im Focus: Can we see monkeys from space? Emerging technologies to map biodiversity

An international team of scientists has proposed a new multi-disciplinary approach in which an array of new technologies will allow us to map biodiversity and the risks that wildlife is facing at the scale of whole landscapes. The findings are published in Nature Ecology and Evolution. This international research is led by the Kunming Institute of Zoology from China, University of East Anglia, University of Leicester and the Leibniz Institute for Zoo and Wildlife Research.

Using a combination of satellite and ground data, the team proposes that it is now possible to map biodiversity with an accuracy that has not been previously...

Im Focus: Climate satellite: Tracking methane with robust laser technology

Heatwaves in the Arctic, longer periods of vegetation in Europe, severe floods in West Africa – starting in 2021, scientists want to explore the emissions of the greenhouse gas methane with the German-French satellite MERLIN. This is made possible by a new robust laser system of the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT in Aachen, which achieves unprecedented measurement accuracy.

Methane is primarily the result of the decomposition of organic matter. The gas has a 25 times greater warming potential than carbon dioxide, but is not as...

Im Focus: How protons move through a fuel cell

Hydrogen is regarded as the energy source of the future: It is produced with solar power and can be used to generate heat and electricity in fuel cells. Empa researchers have now succeeded in decoding the movement of hydrogen ions in crystals – a key step towards more efficient energy conversion in the hydrogen industry of tomorrow.

As charge carriers, electrons and ions play the leading role in electrochemical energy storage devices and converters such as batteries and fuel cells. Proton...

Im Focus: A unique data centre for cosmological simulations

Scientists from the Excellence Cluster Universe at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität Munich have establised "Cosmowebportal", a unique data centre for cosmological simulations located at the Leibniz Supercomputing Centre (LRZ) of the Bavarian Academy of Sciences. The complete results of a series of large hydrodynamical cosmological simulations are available, with data volumes typically exceeding several hundred terabytes. Scientists worldwide can interactively explore these complex simulations via a web interface and directly access the results.

With current telescopes, scientists can observe our Universe’s galaxies and galaxy clusters and their distribution along an invisible cosmic web. From the...
