EGU 2012 General Assembly: Meeting programme online, preliminary press conference topics

14.03.2012
The programme for the General Assembly of the European Geosciences Union (EGU), a meeting with over 10,000 scientists that covers all disciplines of the Earth, planetary, and space sciences, is now online. Press conferences will include presentations on Habitable Worlds in the Solar System and Climate Change (featuring Michael E. Mann), among other topics. The event will be held on 22–27 April 2012 at the Austria Center Vienna.
*Meeting programme online*
All sessions (over 700) and abstracts (over 14,000) are now available from the EGU 2012 website and fully searchable. You can access the programme at http://www.egu2012.eu/programme/how_to_access_the_programme.html.

Media participants to the conference may use the meeting programme to search for abstracts or sessions they find particularly interesting. The programme is searchable by name of a scientist, keywords (e.g., volcano, Fukushima, Mars), session topic (e.g., Solar-Terrestrial Sciences, Natural Hazards), and other parameters. You may also select single contributions or complete sessions from the meeting programme to generate your personal programme.

*Preliminary press conference topics*
We are planning 10 to 12 press conferences at the EGU General Assembly, which will take place at the press centre located on the Yellow Level (Ground Floor) of the Austria Center Vienna. Preliminary topics to be presented to journalists include:
*Renewable energies
*Glaciers & ice caps and sea-level rise
*Habitable worlds in the Solar System
*Tsunami detection and early warning
*Critical mineral resources
*Geosciences and health
*Flood disasters: impacts and forecasting
*Aftermath of the March 2011 Japan earthquake
*Climate sensitivity and climate change (featuring EGU medalists Michael E. Mann and Michael Gill)

*And more!

Please note that the list above is subject to change. A subsequent media advisory will include a full schedule of press conferences with a list of speakers and short summary of the topics covered in each conference.

*Media registration*
Members of the media and public information officers are invited to register online (free of charge) at http://media.egu2012.eu/registration. The online list of journalist and PIOs who have registered already is available at http://media.egu2012.eu/registration/who-is-coming/.

Online (pre-)registration will be available until Thursday 29 March. The advance registration assures that your badge will be waiting for you on your arrival to the Austria Center Vienna, giving you access to the press centre and other meeting rooms. You may also register on-site during the meeting.

Further information about media services at the General Assembly is available from http://media.egu2012.eu/.

For information on accommodation and travel, please refer to http://www.egu2012.eu/accommodation.html and http://www.egu2012.eu/venue.html, respectively.

Im Focus: Carbon Nanotubes Turn Electrical Current into Light-emitting Quasi-particles

Strong light-matter coupling in these semiconducting tubes may hold the key to electrically pumped lasers

Light-matter quasi-particles can be generated electrically in semiconducting carbon nanotubes. Material scientists and physicists from Heidelberg University...

Im Focus: Flexible proximity sensor creates smart surfaces

Fraunhofer IPA has developed a proximity sensor made from silicone and carbon nanotubes (CNT) which detects objects and determines their position. The materials and printing process used mean that the sensor is extremely flexible, economical and can be used for large surfaces. Industry and research partners can use and further develop this innovation straight away.

At first glance, the proximity sensor appears to be nothing special: a thin, elastic layer of silicone onto which black square surfaces are printed, but these...

Im Focus: 3-D scanning with water

3-D shape acquisition using water displacement as the shape sensor for the reconstruction of complex objects

A global team of computer scientists and engineers have developed an innovative technique that more completely reconstructs challenging 3D objects. An ancient...

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...
