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: Dresdner scientists print tomorrow’s world

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.

The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...

Im Focus: Three Magnetic States for Each Hole

Nanometer-scale magnetic perforated grids could create new possibilities for computing. Together with international colleagues, scientists from the Helmholtz Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) have shown how a cobalt grid can be reliably programmed at room temperature. In addition they discovered that for every hole ("antidot") three magnetic states can be configured. The results have been published in the journal "Scientific Reports".

Physicist Dr. Rantej Bali from the HZDR, together with scientists from Singapore and Australia, designed a special grid structure in a thin layer of cobalt in...
