European Geosciences Union General Assembly 2011, Wien, 3. – 8. April 2011

17.02.2011
Online registration for journalists, science writers and public information officers is possible until 18 March 2011. Media registration is also possible onsite during opening hours of the conference office.

The 2011 General Assembly of the European Geosciences Union will take place from 3 April to 8 April in Vienna, Austria.

The EGU General Assembly 2010 will bring together around 10,000 geoscientists from all over Europe and the rest of the world into one meeting covering all disciplines of the Earth, Planetary and Space Sciences.

Major EGU 2011 topics and debates are related to our natural environment and its current threats: natural hazards such as volcanoes, earthquakes and wildfires.Other topics include energy, resources, weather and climate.

Some of these topics, notably past, present and future of the climate, the oceans and ice sheets, will be discussed during the Union Symposium 1 “A Planet under Pressure” with James Zachos, Eric Rignot and Hervé Le Treut as principal speakers.

Union Symposium 3 focuses on the question “How Science Can Aid Society in Tackling Emerging Risks”.

This year’s Great Debate asks “What can be done about Europe’s alarming dependence on mineral imports?”

We are working to put together an attractive press conference programme. It is still preliminary, but we will probably have briefings about Ocean Acidification, Oxygen Depletion of the Oceans (“triple trouble”), Ice Sheets and Sea Level Rise, Recent Large Earthquakes and Tsunamis, Ocean Dynamics and Oil Spills. We will give out more information as our programme evolves. So stay tuned.

Media Registration

Science writers and public information officers are welcome to attend this conference and to register in advance by 18 March 2011 at the latest by completing and returning the "Press-Pre-Registration Form". Media registration at the meeting during the opening hours of the conference office is also possible. Media registration is free-of-charge.

Im Focus: Temperature-controlled fiber-optic light source with liquid core

In a recent publication in the renowned journal Optica, scientists of Leibniz-Institute of Photonic Technology (Leibniz IPHT) in Jena showed that they can accurately control the optical properties of liquid-core fiber lasers and therefore their spectral band width by temperature and pressure tuning.

Already last year, the researchers provided experimental proof of a new dynamic of hybrid solitons– temporally and spectrally stationary light waves resulting...

Nano crystals impact stem cell fate during bone formation

Scientists from the University of Freiburg and the University of Basel identified a master regulator for bone regeneration. Prasad Shastri, Professor of...

Im Focus: AchemAsia 2019 will take place in Shanghai

Moving into its fourth decade, AchemAsia is setting out for new horizons: The International Expo and Innovation Forum for Sustainable Chemical Production will take place from 21-23 May 2019 in Shanghai, China. With an updated event profile, the eleventh edition focusses on topics that are especially relevant for the Chinese process industry, putting a strong emphasis on sustainability and innovation.

Founded in 1989 as a spin-off of ACHEMA to cater to the needs of China’s then developing industry, AchemAsia has since grown into a platform where the latest...

Im Focus: First real-time test of Li-Fi utilization for the industrial Internet of Things

The BMBF-funded OWICELLS project was successfully completed with a final presentation at the BMW plant in Munich. The presentation demonstrated a Li-Fi communication with a mobile robot, while the robot carried out usual production processes (welding, moving and testing parts) in a 5x5m² production cell. The robust, optical wireless transmission is based on spatial diversity; in other words, data is sent and received simultaneously by several LEDs and several photodiodes. The system can transmit data at more than 100 Mbit/s and five milliseconds latency.

Modern production technologies in the automobile industry must become more flexible in order to fulfil individual customer requirements.

Im Focus: Sharp images with flexible fibers

An international team of scientists has discovered a new way to transfer image information through multimodal fibers with almost no distortion - even if the fiber is bent. The results of the study, to which scientist from the Leibniz-Institute of Photonic Technology Jena (Leibniz IPHT) contributed, were published on 6thJune in the highly-cited journal Physical Review Letters.

Endoscopes allow doctors to see into a patient’s body like through a keyhole. Typically, the images are transmitted via a bundle of several hundreds of optical...
