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: First-of-its-kind chemical oscillator offers new level of molecular control

DNA molecules that follow specific instructions could offer more precise molecular control of synthetic chemical systems, a discovery that opens the door for engineers to create molecular machines with new and complex behaviors.

Researchers have created chemical amplifiers and a chemical oscillator using a systematic method that has the potential to embed sophisticated circuit...

Im Focus: Long-lived storage of a photonic qubit for worldwide teleportation

MPQ scientists achieve long storage times for photonic quantum bits which break the lower bound for direct teleportation in a global quantum network.

Concerning the development of quantum memories for the realization of global quantum networks, scientists of the Quantum Dynamics Division led by Professor...

Im Focus: Electromagnetic water cloak eliminates drag and wake

Detailed calculations show water cloaks are feasible with today's technology

Researchers have developed a water cloaking concept based on electromagnetic forces that could eliminate an object's wake, greatly reducing its drag while...

Im Focus: Scientists channel graphene to understand filtration and ion transport into cells

Tiny pores at a cell's entryway act as miniature bouncers, letting in some electrically charged atoms--ions--but blocking others. Operating as exquisitely sensitive filters, these "ion channels" play a critical role in biological functions such as muscle contraction and the firing of brain cells.

To rapidly transport the right ions through the cell membrane, the tiny channels rely on a complex interplay between the ions and surrounding molecules,...

Im Focus: Towards data storage at the single molecule level

The miniaturization of the current technology of storage media is hindered by fundamental limits of quantum mechanics. A new approach consists in using so-called spin-crossover molecules as the smallest possible storage unit. Similar to normal hard drives, these special molecules can save information via their magnetic state. A research team from Kiel University has now managed to successfully place a new class of spin-crossover molecules onto a surface and to improve the molecule’s storage capacity. The storage density of conventional hard drives could therefore theoretically be increased by more than one hundred fold. The study has been published in the scientific journal Nano Letters.

Over the past few years, the building blocks of storage media have gotten ever smaller. But further miniaturization of the current technology is hindered by...
