Call for Abstracts: International Conference "Resilience in Urban and Regional Development”

17.10.2013
International Conference "Resilience in Urban and Regional Development. From Concept to Implementation", March 27-28, 2014 - Berlin, Germany
Deadline for submission of abstracts: November 1, 2013

In the last decade the concept of urban and regional resilience has been much discussed and has been further developed in many areas. Today academics, politicians and decision-makers are concerned with the question of how resilience in cities and regions emerges and can be developed.

However, in particular the practical instrumentalisation of the resilience concept, and the measurability and empirical verification of resilience have to date been very little researched and should be discussed within the framework of this conference.

The aim of the conference, to be held in 2014 (Berlin, Germany), is to position and embed the concept of resilience in the theoretical context, to define determinants of resilience, and to illustrate the various perspectives of resilience research. The operationalisation and empirical investigation of regional and urban resilience are particular focuses of interest.

An especial aim is, for instance, to present proposals for measuring concepts, indicators and investigative strategies so that empirical findings can provide a basis for developing practical guidelines and recommendations for action for the various actors in spatial planning and spatial development.

Abstracts of papers are invited from interested scientists, in particular from young academics, from those working in the fields of politics and public administration, and from representatives of professional bodies.

The conference on "Resilience in Urban and Regional Development. From Concept to Implementation" is being organised by the Dresden Leibniz Graduate School (DLGS). The DLGS is sponsored jointly by the Leibniz Institute of Ecological and Regional Development (IOER), the Technische Universität Dresden (TUD) and the Academy for Spatial Research and Planning (ARL).

Im Focus: A “cosmic snake” reveals the structure of remote galaxies

The formation of stars in distant galaxies is still largely unexplored. For the first time, astron-omers at the University of Geneva have now been able to closely observe a star system six billion light-years away. In doing so, they are confirming earlier simulations made by the University of Zurich. One special effect is made possible by the multiple reflections of images that run through the cosmos like a snake.

Today, astronomers have a pretty accurate idea of how stars were formed in the recent cosmic past. But do these laws also apply to older galaxies? For around a...

Im Focus: Visual intelligence is not the same as IQ

Just because someone is smart and well-motivated doesn't mean he or she can learn the visual skills needed to excel at tasks like matching fingerprints, interpreting medical X-rays, keeping track of aircraft on radar displays or forensic face matching.

That is the implication of a new study which shows for the first time that there is a broad range of differences in people's visual ability and that these...

Im Focus: Novel Nano-CT device creates high-resolution 3D-X-rays of tiny velvet worm legs

Computer Tomography (CT) is a standard procedure in hospitals, but so far, the technology has not been suitable for imaging extremely small objects. In PNAS, a team from the Technical University of Munich (TUM) describes a Nano-CT device that creates three-dimensional x-ray images at resolutions up to 100 nanometers. The first test application: Together with colleagues from the University of Kassel and Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht the researchers analyzed the locomotory system of a velvet worm.

During a CT analysis, the object under investigation is x-rayed and a detector measures the respective amount of radiation absorbed from various angles....

Im Focus: Researchers Develop Data Bus for Quantum Computer

The quantum world is fragile; error correction codes are needed to protect the information stored in a quantum object from the deteriorating effects of noise. Quantum physicists in Innsbruck have developed a protocol to pass quantum information between differently encoded building blocks of a future quantum computer, such as processors and memories. Scientists may use this protocol in the future to build a data bus for quantum computers. The researchers have published their work in the journal Nature Communications.

Future quantum computers will be able to solve problems where conventional computers fail today. We are still far away from any large-scale implementation,...

Im Focus: Wrinkles give heat a jolt in pillared graphene

Rice University researchers test 3-D carbon nanostructures' thermal transport abilities

Pillared graphene would transfer heat better if the theoretical material had a few asymmetric junctions that caused wrinkles, according to Rice University...
