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: Manipulating Electron Spins Without Loss of Information

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...

Im Focus: The proton precisely weighted

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...
