First International Conference on Consumer Research | ICCR 2014: Early bird deadline July 31, 2014

08.07.2014

The Competence Center of Consumer Research North Rhine-Westphalia (CECORE NRW) is inviting researchers from multiple disciplines such as sociology, political science, economics, law, psychology, history, food sciences, environmental sciences, or engineering to register to the "ICCR 2014 | International Conference on Consumer Research: Challenges for Consumer Research and Consumer Policy in Europe" (29-30 September 2014 in Bonn, Germany). Media representatives and journalists are invited to attend the conference, please use the attached form for your accreditation.

We are pleased to announce that online registration is now open at https://lcem.lab-concepts.de/registration/iccr2014/en Please see http://www.vz-nrw.de/iccr for program information and updates. Follow us on Twitter (@kvf_nrw | #iccr2014).

We recommend you to register soon since the number of participants is limited. A fee is payable to attend the event, except after arrangement (paper presentation). Special rates are offered to students upon presentation of a student ID.

Register by 31 July 2014 at the latest to benefit from the early bird conference fee (normal fee - early bird: 100,00 Euro; student fee - early bird: 50,00 Euro). After 31 July 2014 the fees are: 200,00 Euro (normal fee), 100,00 Euro (student fee). In general, the registration fees can be paid by bank transfer or credit card.

ICCR 2014 brings together state-of-the-art research and supports seminal, multidisciplinary research perspectives for Consumer Research and Consumer Policy in Europe. Hosted by CECORE NRW, a think tank connecting researchers in Germany's biggest state and beyond, the conference features round table discussions with participants from politics, the media, and academic disciplines.

Svenja Schulze, Minister of Innovation, Science and Research and Johannes Remmel, Minister for Climate Protection, Environment, Agriculture, Nature Conservation and Consumer Protection of North Rhine-Westphalia as well as important officials from the European Union and other national governments will join the conference to foster networks of researchers, funding agencies, and government officials.

Crucial questions are tackled on the conference: How do consumers actually behave, what obstacles do they face in markets and technologies, are consumers' interests effectively represented? These are classic questions in consumer research. New research questions have been raised in recent times: What is consumers' responsibility for sustainable growth? How can vulnerable consumers be protected? Is there a revolution of consumer-rights?

More than ever, consumer research is in charge to unfold its interdisciplinary potential without sacrificing specific research foci and approaches from different disciplines.

The conference will be held at RCC Regional Museum | LVR-LandesMuseum Bonn, Colmantstr. 14-16, 53113 Bonn, Germany. For information on available accommodation nearby please see http://www.bonn-region.de/ICCR2014. Please note that the organiser does not assume any costs for your trip or your stay in Bonn.

For any organizational questions, please contact our registration management lab concepts by email at ICCR2014@lab-concepts.de or call + 49 228 24 98 118.

We are looking forward to welcoming you in Bonn!

Im Focus: Hannover Messe 2015: Saving energy with smart façades

Glass-fronted office buildings are some of the biggest energy consumers, and regulating their temperature is a big job. Now a façade element developed by Fraunhofer researchers and designers for glass fronts is to reduce energy consumption by harnessing solar thermal energy. A demonstrator version will be on display at Hannover Messe.

In Germany, buildings account for almost 40 percent of all energy usage. Heating, cooling and ventilating homes, offices and public spaces is expensive – and...

Im Focus: Nonoxide ceramics open up new perspectives for the chemical and plant engineering

Outstanding chemical, thermal and tribological properties predestine silicon carbide for the production of ceramic components of high volume. A novel method now overcomes the procedural and technical limitations of conventional design methods for the production of components with large differences in wall thickness and demanding undercuts.

Extremely hard as diamond, shrinking-free manufacturing, resistance to chemicals, wear and temperatures up to 1300 °C: Silicon carbide (SiSiC) bundles all...

Im Focus: Energy-autonomous and wireless monitoring protects marine gearboxes

The IPH presents a solution at HANNOVER MESSE 2015 to make ship traffic more reliable while decreasing the maintenance costs at the same time. In cooperation with project partners, the research institute from Hannover, Germany, has developed a sensor system which continuously monitors the condition of the marine gearbox, thus preventing breakdowns. Special feature: the monitoring system works wirelessly and energy-autonomously. The required electrical power is generated where it is needed – directly at the sensor.

As well as cars need to be certified regularly (in Germany by the TÜV – Technical Inspection Association), ships need to be inspected – if the powertrain stops...
