CASiM Conference "The Role of Trust in Business Economics" in Leipzig (Germany) on June 28, 2012

18.01.2012
HHL – Leipzig Graduate School of Management and the Center for Advanced Studies in Management (CASiM) will organize a one-day scientific conference on the topic „The Role of Trust in Business Economics“ on June 28, 2012. The conference will take place in Leipzig (Germany) and will run three panels with talks on the following topics: "Trust and the Theory of the Firm”, “Trust and Markets”, and “Trust in Innovation”.

Trust is one of the crucial foundations for the successful exchange and interplay of economic actors. Trust has a great influence on the intra-firm and inter-firm interaction of employees, management, customers and financiers, and hence on the efficiency and prosperity of the national economy.

In spite of the necessity of economic rules, regulations, compliance and contracts within firms, on the market and in the national economy, there can be no doubt that true efficiency and sustainability require trust. Our current economic and financial crisis demonstrates clearly how important trust is and which problems arise on the market and in the national economy if trust is violated or even lost.

We believe that trust has not been adequately discussed in the economic sciences and that the trust research in other scientific disciplines has not been sufficiently incorporated into economics. To remedy this problem, HHL – Leipzig Graduate School of Management and the Center for Advanced Studies in Management (CASiM) will organize a one-day scientific conference on the topic „The Role of Trust in Business Economics“ on June 28, 2012.

The conference will take place in Leipzig (Germany) and will run three panels with talks on the following topics:
Panel 1: “Trust and the Theory of the Firm”
Panel 2: “Trust and Markets”
Panel 3: “Trust in Innovation”.

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,...

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...
