Federal Environment Ministry supports online-climate conference CLIMATE 2010

04.08.2010
Parliamentary State Secretary Reiche encourages participants of e-conference to engage in networking and in knowledge sharing // transboundary solutions are key to sustainable management of water resources in times of climate change // continuous efforts in mitigating climate change on all levels are essential

In the run up of the 16th Conference of the Parties (COP 16) in November and December 2010 in Cancún/Mexico, the online-climate conference website features a new video podcast in which the Parliamentary State Secretary Katherina Reiche, Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety in Germany, encourages the worldwide participants to seize the innovative online-climate conference CLIMATE 2010 (www.climate2010.net) for networking, discussing newest findings in climate research and for developing sustainable solutions.

The key theme of this year’s world-wide CO2-friendly virtual conference is the sustainable management of water resources, a crucial theme especially for those world regions which will in future be most affected by climate change. In her video podcast the Parliamentary State Secretary stated that it is necessary “for each and every one of us to take responsibility for our actions.” She adds: “We are therefore particularly pleased that you [the participants] are our guest at this online-conference and I wish us all a creative and constructive exchange.” The worldwide and free of charge online-conference CLIMATE 2010 is organized for the third time after 2008 and 2009.

This year the Federal Minister for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety of the Federal Republic of Germany, Dr. Norbert Roettgen, took over the patronage.

Visit the conference site at:
http://www.climate2010.net
from 1 to 7 November 2010 to share and spread knowledge and experiences about climate change with fellow scientists and many other stakeholders.

A range of new, interactive material is already available on the website. The over 100 peer-reviewed papers – the core of CLIMATE 2010 - will be published first from the opening day of the conference onwards. Participants can discuss actively with authors and other participants. Climate videos visualize impressively many already visible impacts of climate change, the climate library offers background information, daily expert live chats bring about interactivity on the site. Brand new features on CLIMATE 2010 are teaching materials and an interactive map showing adaptation projects from all over the world. Especially interesting for youngsters, is a virtual photo album, in which everyone can introduce himself as a climate activist to a worldwide audience.

Renowned partners are the UN Environment Program (UNEP), the Interdisciplinary Panel of Climate Change (IPCC), UN’s Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO), the Global Water Partnership (GWP) and the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Technische Zusammenarbeit (GTZ). Media partners such as the German WELT Group, the broadcaster NRD Info as well as Comment:Visions support the interactive e-conference. The Daimler AG supports this year’s conference like in the previous years.

Im Focus: Significantly more productivity in USP lasers

In recent years, lasers with ultrashort pulses (USP) down to the femtosecond range have become established on an industrial scale. They could advance some applications with the much-lauded “cold ablation” – if that meant they would then achieve more throughput. A new generation of process engineering that will address this issue in particular will be discussed at the “4th UKP Workshop – Ultrafast Laser Technology” in April 2017.

Even back in the 1990s, scientists were comparing materials processing with nanosecond, picosecond and femtosesecond pulses. The result was surprising:...

Im Focus: Shape matters when light meets atom

Mapping the interaction of a single atom with a single photon may inform design of quantum devices

Have you ever wondered how you see the world? Vision is about photons of light, which are packets of energy, interacting with the atoms or molecules in what...

Im Focus: Novel silicon etching technique crafts 3-D gradient refractive index micro-optics

A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.

Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...

Im Focus: Quantum Particles Form Droplets

In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.

“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...

Im Focus: MADMAX: Max Planck Institute for Physics takes up axion research

The Max Planck Institute for Physics (MPP) is opening up a new research field. A workshop from November 21 - 22, 2016 will mark the start of activities for an innovative axion experiment. Axions are still only purely hypothetical particles. Their detection could solve two fundamental problems in particle physics: What dark matter consists of and why it has not yet been possible to directly observe a CP violation for the strong interaction.

The “MADMAX” project is the MPP’s commitment to axion research. Axions are so far only a theoretical prediction and are difficult to detect: on the one hand,...
