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.

More and more automobile companies are focusing on body parts made of carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP). However, manufacturing and repair costs must be further reduced in order to make CFRP more economical in use. Together with the Volkswagen AG and five other partners in the project HolQueSt 3D, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) has developed laser processes for the automatic trimming, drilling and repair of three-dimensional components.
Automated manufacturing processes are the basis for ultimately establishing the series production of CFRP components. In the project HolQueSt 3D, the LZH has...
Reflecting the structure of composites found in nature and the ancient world, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have synthesized thin carbon nanotube (CNT) textiles that exhibit both high electrical conductivity and a level of toughness that is about fifty times higher than copper films, currently used in electronics.
"The structural robustness of thin metal films has significant importance for the reliable operation of smart skin and flexible electronics including...
The nearby, giant radio galaxy M87 hosts a supermassive black hole (BH) and is well-known for its bright jet dominating the spectrum over ten orders of magnitude in frequency. Due to its proximity, jet prominence, and the large black hole mass, M87 is the best laboratory for investigating the formation, acceleration, and collimation of relativistic jets. A research team led by Silke Britzen from the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy in Bonn, Germany, has found strong indication for turbulent processes connecting the accretion disk and the jet of that galaxy providing insights into the longstanding problem of the origin of astrophysical jets.
Supermassive black holes form some of the most enigmatic phenomena in astrophysics. Their enormous energy output is supposed to be generated by the...
The probability to find a certain number of photons inside a laser pulse usually corresponds to a classical distribution of independent events, the so-called...
Microprocessors based on atomically thin materials hold the promise of the evolution of traditional processors as well as new applications in the field of flexible electronics. Now, a TU Wien research team led by Thomas Müller has made a breakthrough in this field as part of an ongoing research project.
Two-dimensional materials, or 2D materials for short, are extremely versatile, although – or often more precisely because – they are made up of just one or a...
