To complement the Awards Ceremony of the European Satellite Navigation Competition 2010 – scheduled for 18-19 October in Munich, Germany – the Application Center for Satellite Navigation Oberpfaffenhofen (AZO) is holding an international conference that will be all about innovative applications in the same field.
The event is designed for developers, industry representatives, investors, and other patrons of business from around the world.
The conference will take place on Monday, 18 October at the Haus der Bayerischen Wirtschaft in Munich and on the following day at the Galileo Control Centre, on the premises of the German Aerospace Center (DLR) in nearby Oberpfaffenhofen. It is being supported by the Bavarian Ministry for Economic Affairs, Infrastructure, Transport, and Technology.
The first day of the event will begin with a business matching session featuring one-on-one discussions with up to four desired partners arranged in advance. Following a lunch break, the agenda will continue with a “Baltic Workshop” that will introduce the strategies and activities of the Baltic states, as well as a number of local start-ups.
Speakers from the national aerospace agencies and business development organisations in Lithuania, Estonia, and Latvia will provide insights into their areas of focus in satellite navigation and invite the attendees to engage in dialogue with Baltic companies and research institutions. The workshop is being supported by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research and its “Promoting Innovation in Germany” programme.
The second half of the day will contain presentations and a discussion forum dedicated to intelligent transport and logistics systems. In addition to the challenges involved in assembling secure, efficient, and environmentally friendly logistics solutions, the focus will be on future visions of in-vehicle driver assistance, guidance, and IT-supported communication systems.
The first day will draw to an exciting close at the Awards Ceremony of the European Satellite Navigation Competition, which will be held as part of a state reception hosted by Bavarian Minister of Economic Affairs Martin Zeil. The event is scheduled to begin with a classical concert by pianist Elena Misirkova at 6:45 p.m. at the Munich Residenz. Along with the 23 winners from the competition’s partner regions, eight special prizes will be awarded by high-ranking representatives of the European GNSS Supervisory Authority (GSA), the European Space Agency (ESA), the German Aerospace Center (DLR), ESNC industry partners T-Systems and NAVTEQ, and Forum SatNav MIT BW.
In addition, a student prize and three awards for the best applications suitable for testing and realisation at one of the 220 nodes of the European Network of Living Labs (ENoLL) will be presented – a first for the ESNC.
The second day of the conference will then be all about the winners of this year’s competition.
Innovators from all over the world – including the overall victor, the GALILEO Master – will introduce their business ideas based on satellite navigation. The versatility of this field is reflected in the six topic blocks covered: security-critical applications, road solutions, public & social services, highprecision applications, location-based services, and earth observation & environment. An info session on the third Galileo Call for Proposals in the EU’s 7th Framework Programme, an introduction of the new ESNC partner regions, and example best practices from international incubation programmes will round out the day. During the breaks, attendees will also have the chance to tour the Galileo Control Centre and the German Space Operations Center (GSOC).
The conference is free for attendees, who can access the full agenda at www.conference.galileomasters. eu.

Astronomers from Bonn and Tautenburg in Thuringia (Germany) used the 100-m radio telescope at Effelsberg to observe several galaxy clusters. At the edges of these large accumulations of dark matter, stellar systems (galaxies), hot gas, and charged particles, they found magnetic fields that are exceptionally ordered over distances of many million light years. This makes them the most extended magnetic fields in the universe known so far.
The results will be published on March 22 in the journal „Astronomy & Astrophysics“.
Galaxy clusters are the largest gravitationally bound structures in the universe. With a typical extent of about 10 million light years, i.e. 100 times the...
Researchers at the Goethe University Frankfurt, together with partners from the University of Tübingen in Germany and Queen Mary University as well as Francis Crick Institute from London (UK) have developed a novel technology to decipher the secret ubiquitin code.
Ubiquitin is a small protein that can be linked to other cellular proteins, thereby controlling and modulating their functions. The attachment occurs in many...

Silicon nanosheets are thin, two-dimensional layers with exceptional optoelectronic properties very similar to those of graphene. Albeit, the nanosheets are less stable. Now researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have, for the first time ever, produced a composite material combining silicon nanosheets and a polymer that is both UV-resistant and easy to process. This brings the scientists a significant step closer to industrial applications like flexible displays and photosensors.

Enzymes behave differently in a test tube compared with the molecular scrum of a living cell. Chemists from the University of Basel have now been able to simulate these confined natural conditions in artificial vesicles for the first time. As reported in the academic journal Small, the results are offering better insight into the development of nanoreactors and artificial organelles.
