High-profile speakers from the economy and science will discuss good corporate governance in Africa, Asia and South America
Together with IFC/World Bank, the Center for Corporate Governance at HHL Leipzig Graduate School of Management will host two conferences on the key aspects and competitive advantages of corporate governance in emerging markets from September 24 to 26, 2015.
The conference will deal with questions of companies and investors from the point of view of the economy and academia. Both events are to deliver well-founded findings for the application of good corporate governance in emerging markets.
The question of effects of responsible conduct and transparent rules on economic success will be a major focus of the two conferences. High-profile experts from Brazil, South Africa and India will give presentations on this topic and discuss with leading investors.
The first conference, which takes place from September 24 to 25, will focus on the possibilities of practical application for enterprises and international investors. Mats Isaksson (Head of Corporate Affairs, OECD), George Dallas (Policy Director of ICGN, London) and Darrin Hartzler (Global Manager, International Finance Corporation) will be among the speakers.
The subsequent 5th International Conference on Corporate Governance in Emerging Markets, an academic conference organized by the Emerging Markets Corporate Governance Research Network, will examine the latest research publications dealing with the development of corporate governance in emerging markets.

The Center for Corporate Governance (CCG) at HHL Leipzig Graduate School of Management was founded in April 2010. The research work focuses, among other things, on the topics of corporate governance and company performance, governance ratings, diversity and corporate governance in emerging economies. The institution is led by a team of Academic Directors with Univ.-Prof. Dr. Marc Steffen Rapp (Philipps-Universität Marburg), Prof. Christian Strenger and Univ.-Prof. Dr. Michael Wolff (University of Göttingen). The CCG cooperates with numerous governance units from international universities and the Global Governance Knowledge Group of IFC/World Bank. http://www.hhl.de/ccg

ICTM Conference 2017: Production technology for turbomachine manufacturing of the future

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:...
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...
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...
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...
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,...
