Proposals to be submitted by 12 January 2015
The German National Library of Science and Technology (TIB) will be hosting the 36th Annual IATUL Conference 2015 of the International Association of University Libraries (IATUL) with the title “Strategic Partnerships for Access and Discovery” in Hannover from 5 to 9 July 2015. The conference language will be English.
Following the call for papers and posters, proposals to the 36th Annual IATUL Conference 2015 can be submitted any time between now and 12 January 2015 on the following topics:
• Library Strategy and Management (Methods of strategic planning and steering)
• Strategic Partnerships (International and national networks and alliances for improving library services)
• Changing Environment for Librarians (In between new types of publication, access options and discovery tools – challenges and solutions)
• Open Science/Science 2.0 (Enabling networked web-based scientific collaboration)
• Management of Research Data (New approaches and best practices for data repositories)
• Non-textual Information (Novel ways to provide added value while managing growing data volumes)
• Digital Preservation (Collaborative projects, service and business models, limitations in legal framework, involving researchers in curation)

In addition to the programme comprising presentations, discussions and workshops about strategy, management and practice in libraries, IATUL also offers an accompanying company exhibition. Exhibitors will have the opportunity to present their services and products to more than 200 international participants from the field of librarianship.

Ultrafast lasers have introduced new possibilities in engraving ultrafine structures, and scientists are now also investigating how to use them to etch microstructures into thin glass. There are possible applications in analytics (lab on a chip) and especially in electronics and the consumer sector, where great interest has been shown.
This new method was born of a surprising phenomenon: irradiating glass in a particular way with an ultrafast laser has the effect of making the glass up to a...

Controlling functional properties by light is one of the grand goals in modern condensed matter physics and materials science. A new study now demonstrates how...
Researchers from the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) at the University of Waterloo led the development of a new extensible wiring technique capable of controlling superconducting quantum bits, representing a significant step towards to the realization of a scalable quantum computer.
"The quantum socket is a wiring method that uses three-dimensional wires based on spring-loaded pins to address individual qubits," said Jeremy Béjanin, a PhD...
In a paper in Scientific Reports, a research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute describes a novel light-activated phenomenon that could become the basis for applications as diverse as microscopic robotic grippers and more efficient solar cells.
A research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) has developed a revolutionary, light-activated semiconductor nanocomposite material that can be used...
By forcefully embedding two silicon atoms in a diamond matrix, Sandia researchers have demonstrated for the first time on a single chip all the components needed to create a quantum bridge to link quantum computers together.
"People have already built small quantum computers," says Sandia researcher Ryan Camacho. "Maybe the first useful one won't be a single giant quantum computer...
