An international conference to be held in Dresden in September 2015 will address the repercussions of energy generation on Europe’s landscapes. Suggested topics for presentation should be submitted by 28 February.
Europe’s landscapes are being transformed by the growth in renewable energies and the ongoing exploitation of fossil fuels such as lignite and shale gas. The international conference “Energy Landscapes:
Perception, Planning, Participation and Power” organised by the Landscape Research Group will focus on the perception of these developments as well as on ways to influence them.
The conference will be held in Dresden from 16 to 18 September 2015.
The call for papers has been published on the conference website (http://lrg2015.ioer.info), where suggested topics for English-language presentations can be submitted until 28 February.
Early-stage researchers are also encouraged to contribute.
The conference is organised by the Leibniz Institute of Ecological Urban and Regional Development in cooperation with the Technische Universität Dresden and three other partners.
The target audience are students in this field as well as working scientists and practitioners. Keynote addresses will be held by prominent researchers in the field of energy and landscapes such as Maarten Wolsink from the University of Amsterdam/the Netherlands, Patrick Devine-Wright from the University of Exeter/UK as well as Don Mitchell from Syracuse University/USA.

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.
The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...

Nanometer-scale magnetic perforated grids could create new possibilities for computing. Together with international colleagues, scientists from the Helmholtz Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) have shown how a cobalt grid can be reliably programmed at room temperature. In addition they discovered that for every hole ("antidot") three magnetic states can be configured. The results have been published in the journal "Scientific Reports".
Physicist Dr. Rantej Bali from the HZDR, together with scientists from Singapore and Australia, designed a special grid structure in a thin layer of cobalt in...
