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!

Nerve cells cover their high energy demand with glucose and lactate. Scientists of the University of Zurich now provide new support for this. They show for the first time in the intact mouse brain evidence for an exchange of lactate between different brain cells. With this study they were able to confirm a 20-year old hypothesis.
In comparison to other organs, the human brain has the highest energy requirements. The supply of energy for nerve cells and the particular role of lactic acid...
In laser material processing, the simulation of processes has made great strides over the past few years. Today, the software can predict relatively well what will happen on the workpiece. Unfortunately, it is also highly complex and requires a lot of computing time. Thanks to clever simplification, experts from Fraunhofer ILT are now able to offer the first-ever simulation software that calculates processes in real time and also runs on tablet computers and smartphones. The fast software enables users to do without expensive experiments and to find optimum process parameters even more effectively.
Before now, the reliable simulation of laser processes was a job for experts. Armed with sophisticated software packages and after many hours on computer...
