Climate 2010: 3rd global Online Climate Conference calls for papers

18.01.2010
In December 2009, the international community failed to draft a Kyoto follow-up protocol. It is not without irony that these large-scale events designed to save the climate produce large CO2 emissions due to travel and air-conditioned accom-modation of thousands of delegates.

Even though, or simply because of the limited success of the Copenhagen summit, climate change continues to be a relevant topic on the global agenda. Hamburg University of Applied Sciences organizes for the third time after 2008 and 2009 the worldwide scientific online climate conference CLIMATE 2010 - guaranteed climate-friendly as not travels are needed to participate and the website is powered by green energy.

From 1-7 November 2010, reseachers, companies, authorities, students and the interested public can discuss the impacts of climate change at http://www.climate2010.net.

"IT can facilitate spreading worldwide climate know-how and help connecting stake-holders from many different disciplines" says Professor Walter Leal, CLIMATE 2010's chairman. "Especially in the developing countries which are believed to be most affect-ted by climate change, there is a large demand for access to climate know-how to adapt to future climatic impacts." The key theme of the virtual conference is "Climate change and the Sustainable Management of Water Resources". Renowned partners are the UN Environment Program (UNEP), the Interdisciplinary Panel of Climate Change (IPCC), UN's Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) and further world bodies.

Researchers from around the globe, but also authorities, NGOs, companies and the interested public are encouraged to submit a scientific abstract until 31 March 2010 online at www.climate2010.net, relating to one of the four following categories:

- Category 1: Geochemical and physical impacts of climate change
- Category 2: Socio-economic aspects of Climate Change (relating to water supply and use)
- Category 3: Climate Change, policy-making and sustainable water use
- Category 4: Projects on Climate Change and sustainable water use, in particular education and awareness-raising initiatives

All submissions will be subject to peer review. Besides online publication throughout the conference week from 1-7 November 2010, the best English papers will be considered for publication in the "International Journal of Climate Change Studies and Management" and/or the book publication "Climate Change and the Sustainable Management of Water Resources" as part of the Climate Change Management Series (Springer). Further, there is an opportunity to promote own climate-related projects and publications.

The organizers aim to exceed the previous successful conferences: In 2009, thousands of conference participants from 147 countries discussed a total of 103 papers on the social, economic and political aspects of climate change. The CLIMATE 2009 website recorded almost 4 million hits and 830,000 site visits.

In 2010, participants will again have the opportunity to discuss all contributions directly with the authors. In addition, CLIMATE 2010 features regular expert live chats, climate videos and many new features such as climate teaching materials. Like in the previous year, CLIMATE 2010 will provide exciting discussions: Last year, for example, researcher from the Asian Institute of Technology evaluated awareness-raising adaptation in Bangladesh, a researcher from Singapore University elaborated on a global framework for ICT and Dutch scientists described opportunities and challenges of climate change for regional planning.

Im Focus: Significantly more productivity in USP lasers

In recent years, lasers with ultrashort pulses (USP) down to the femtosecond range have become established on an industrial scale. They could advance some applications with the much-lauded “cold ablation” – if that meant they would then achieve more throughput. A new generation of process engineering that will address this issue in particular will be discussed at the “4th UKP Workshop – Ultrafast Laser Technology” in April 2017.

Even back in the 1990s, scientists were comparing materials processing with nanosecond, picosecond and femtosesecond pulses. The result was surprising:...

Mapping the interaction of a single atom with a single photon may inform design of quantum devices

Have you ever wondered how you see the world? Vision is about photons of light, which are packets of energy, interacting with the atoms or molecules in what...

Im Focus: Novel silicon etching technique crafts 3-D gradient refractive index micro-optics

A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.

Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...

Im Focus: Quantum Particles Form Droplets

In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.

“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...

Im Focus: MADMAX: Max Planck Institute for Physics takes up axion research

The Max Planck Institute for Physics (MPP) is opening up a new research field. A workshop from November 21 - 22, 2016 will mark the start of activities for an innovative axion experiment. Axions are still only purely hypothetical particles. Their detection could solve two fundamental problems in particle physics: What dark matter consists of and why it has not yet been possible to directly observe a CP violation for the strong interaction.

The “MADMAX” project is the MPP’s commitment to axion research. Axions are so far only a theoretical prediction and are difficult to detect: on the one hand,...
