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.

DNA molecules that follow specific instructions could offer more precise molecular control of synthetic chemical systems, a discovery that opens the door for engineers to create molecular machines with new and complex behaviors.
Researchers have created chemical amplifiers and a chemical oscillator using a systematic method that has the potential to embed sophisticated circuit...
MPQ scientists achieve long storage times for photonic quantum bits which break the lower bound for direct teleportation in a global quantum network.
Concerning the development of quantum memories for the realization of global quantum networks, scientists of the Quantum Dynamics Division led by Professor...

Tiny pores at a cell's entryway act as miniature bouncers, letting in some electrically charged atoms--ions--but blocking others. Operating as exquisitely sensitive filters, these "ion channels" play a critical role in biological functions such as muscle contraction and the firing of brain cells.
To rapidly transport the right ions through the cell membrane, the tiny channels rely on a complex interplay between the ions and surrounding molecules,...
The miniaturization of the current technology of storage media is hindered by fundamental limits of quantum mechanics. A new approach consists in using so-called spin-crossover molecules as the smallest possible storage unit. Similar to normal hard drives, these special molecules can save information via their magnetic state. A research team from Kiel University has now managed to successfully place a new class of spin-crossover molecules onto a surface and to improve the molecule’s storage capacity. The storage density of conventional hard drives could therefore theoretically be increased by more than one hundred fold. The study has been published in the scientific journal Nano Letters.
Over the past few years, the building blocks of storage media have gotten ever smaller. But further miniaturization of the current technology is hindered by...
