Booth and panel discussion – The Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings at the AAAS 2017 Annual Meeting

13.02.2017

The Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings will participate in the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) 2017 Annual Meeting, which takes place from 16 – 20 February in Boston, MA. Every year, excellent young scientists congregate with Nobel Laureates in Lindau, Germany, for a week of scientific exchange.

During this year’s AAAS Meeting, entitled “Serving Society through Science Policy”, the organisers of the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings will exhibit at booth No. 916 in the Hynes Convention Center. Here, young scientists can find out how to participate in the Lindau Meetings.

Furthermore, representatives of universities and other science and research institutions may learn more about the global academic partner network, and journalists will find detailed information on covering the meeting.

The Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings will co-exhibit with the Heidelberg Laureate Forum Foundation, which hosts an annual meeting of laureates of the Abel Prize, the ACM A.M. Turing Award, the ACM Prize in Computing, the Fields Medal and the Nevanlinna Prize. Both organisations share the common aim of bringing together the most acclaimed scientists in their disciplines with the most talented young academics from all over the world.

Panel Discussion: 18 February at 03:00 pm

On Saturday, the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings and the Heidelberg Laureate Forum Foundation (HLFF) will host a panel discussion entitled “Science Policy and Science Diplomacy: Intergenerational Dialogue” in room 208 of the Hynes Convention Center. The participants will include Nobel Laureate Eric Maskin, ACM A.M. Turing Award Winner John Hopcroft, ERC President Jean-Pierre Bourguignon as well as Lindau alumnus Gunes Parlakgul and HLF alumna Kristina Mallory.

In 2017, two Lindau Meetings will take place:

67th Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting

The 67th Lindau Meeting will focus on chemistry and will take place from 25 – 30 June 2017. Thus far, 30 Nobel laureates as well as Ahmet Üzümcü, Director General of the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) and Joseph Sifakis, recipient of the 2007 ACM A.M. Turing Award, have confirmed their participation. The meeting will also host about 400 young scientists from around 80 countries.

6th Lindau Meeting on Economic Sciences

The Lindau Meeting on Economic Sciences will take place from 22 – 26 August 2017. For this meeting, 21 Nobel Laureates are expected to participate. In Lindau on Lake Constance, they will meet 400 young economists from all over the world.

Im Focus: In best circles: First integrated circuit from self-assembled polymer

For the first time, a team of researchers at the Max-Planck Institute (MPI) for Polymer Research in Mainz, Germany, has succeeded in making an integrated circuit (IC) from just a monolayer of a semiconducting polymer via a bottom-up, self-assembly approach.

In the self-assembly process, the semiconducting polymer arranges itself into an ordered monolayer in a transistor. The transistors are binary switches used...

Im Focus: Hybrid optics bring color imaging using ultrathin metalenses into focus

For photographers and scientists, lenses are lifesavers. They reflect and refract light, making possible the imaging systems that drive discovery through the microscope and preserve history through cameras.

But today's glass-based lenses are bulky and resist miniaturization. Next-generation technologies, such as ultrathin cameras or tiny microscopes, require...

Im Focus: Stem cell divisions in the adult brain seen for the first time

Scientists from the University of Zurich have succeeded for the first time in tracking individual stem cells and their neuronal progeny over months within the intact adult brain. This study sheds light on how new neurons are produced throughout life.

The generation of new nerve cells was once thought to taper off at the end of embryonic development. However, recent research has shown that the adult brain...

Im Focus: Interference as a new method for cooling quantum devices

Theoretical physicists propose to use negative interference to control heat flow in quantum devices. Study published in Physical Review Letters

Quantum computer parts are sensitive and need to be cooled to very low temperatures. Their tiny size makes them particularly susceptible to a temperature...
