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.

Strong light-matter coupling in these semiconducting tubes may hold the key to electrically pumped lasers
Light-matter quasi-particles can be generated electrically in semiconducting carbon nanotubes. Material scientists and physicists from Heidelberg University...
Fraunhofer IPA has developed a proximity sensor made from silicone and carbon nanotubes (CNT) which detects objects and determines their position. The materials and printing process used mean that the sensor is extremely flexible, economical and can be used for large surfaces. Industry and research partners can use and further develop this innovation straight away.
At first glance, the proximity sensor appears to be nothing special: a thin, elastic layer of silicone onto which black square surfaces are printed, but these...
3-D shape acquisition using water displacement as the shape sensor for the reconstruction of complex objects
A global team of computer scientists and engineers have developed an innovative technique that more completely reconstructs challenging 3D objects. An ancient...
Physicists have developed a new technique that uses electrical voltages to control the electron spin on a chip. The newly-developed method provides protection from spin decay, meaning that the contained information can be maintained and transmitted over comparatively large distances, as has been demonstrated by a team from the University of Basel’s Department of Physics and the Swiss Nanoscience Institute. The results have been published in Physical Review X.
For several years, researchers have been trying to use the spin of an electron to store and transmit information. The spin of each electron is always coupled...
What is the mass of a proton? Scientists from Germany and Japan successfully did an important step towards the most exact knowledge of this fundamental constant. By means of precision measurements on a single proton, they could improve the precision by a factor of three and also correct the existing value.
To determine the mass of a single proton still more accurate – a group of physicists led by Klaus Blaum and Sven Sturm of the Max Planck Institute for Nuclear...
