II. MEDIA PARTICIPATION
The 51st Annual Drosophila Research Conference is open to media representatives, including those from bona fide print, broadcast, radio, and online venues, and freelance writers on a verifiable assignment from an established news source.
In addition to completing the online registration form, freelancers must send the GSA Public Relations and Communications Office a confirmation of assignment letter from their editor on the news organization’s letterhead.Complimentary meeting registration will be available to members of the media who provide appropriate press credentials and identification.
o Exchanging, loaning or borrowing of the GSA press badge is strictly prohibited.• Camera crews filming in onsite meeting areas must make prior arrangements with the GSA Public Relations and Communications Office.
GSA does not issue media credentials to the following: any publication’s advertising, marketing, public relations or sales representatives; publishers, editors or reporters from exhibiting companies; “in-house” newsletters or promotional publications staff; public relations representatives of exhibitors or educational institutions; writers creating analyses or reports sold as a commodity to customers; financial analysts; medical education companies; or other individuals who are not actually reporting on the content of the 51st Annual Drosophila Research Conference. NOTE: Bloggers or reporters who are plenary or poster presenters must register for the meeting at http://www.drosophila-conf.org/2010/pages/register.shtml.

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...

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,...
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...
