Call for proposals for presentations and panels for the “AC21 International Forum” happening at Chemnitz from 30 April to 3 May 2016 is open from now on
Successful international networks are advantageous for players intending to enhance their scientific excellence by transnational cooperation, to explore potentials for innovation as well as to contribute to solutions for overcoming global challenges.
Among these successful networks counts also the “Academic Consortium 21” (AC21) which was founded in 2002. Currently it includes 19 member universities from all of the five continents originating not only from industrialized countries (i.a. USA, Australia, Japan, France) but also from emerging and developing countries (i.a. China, Thailand, Laos, Indonesia, South Africa).
Within this network, Technische Universität Chemnitz plays a leading role in order to support and further strengthen the global collaboration in studies, teaching and research.
Among the largest and most important events of the mentioned network counts the “AC21 International Forum” happening every two years. In the year 2016, TU Chemnitz will host this event, to which more than 200 guests, underneath them presidents, rectors and scientific managers from the AC21-member universities, are expected to participate.
From 30 April to 3 May they will discuss the future-oriented topic “Networks of innovation for the transformation of society through science”.
Thus, “Best Practices” from different regions of the world shall be presented in order to initiate a process of mutual learning. Furthermore, the establishment and further development of a transfer culture within trans-disciplinary and cross-sector networks including the creation of appropriated framework conditions as a base for successful acting within international networks shall be approached.
From now on until the 31 January 2016, the call for proposals (particularly for presentations and panels for workshops) is open. For further details please see the “Call for Proposals: Presentations and Panels”: https://www.tu-chemnitz.de/international/vernetzung/ac21/if2016/AC21IF2016_CfP.p...

A newly developed laser technology has enabled physicists in the Laboratory for Attosecond Physics (jointly run by LMU Munich and the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics) to generate attosecond bursts of high-energy photons of unprecedented intensity. This has made it possible to observe the interaction of multiple photons in a single such pulse with electrons in the inner orbital shell of an atom.
In order to observe the ultrafast electron motion in the inner shells of atoms with short light pulses, the pulses must not only be ultrashort, but very...
A group of researchers led by Andrea Cavalleri at the Max Planck Institute for Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) in Hamburg has demonstrated a new method enabling precise measurements of the interatomic forces that hold crystalline solids together. The paper Probing the Interatomic Potential of Solids by Strong-Field Nonlinear Phononics, published online in Nature, explains how a terahertz-frequency laser pulse can drive very large deformations of the crystal.
By measuring the highly unusual atomic trajectories under extreme electromagnetic transients, the MPSD group could reconstruct how rigid the atomic bonds are...
Quantum computers may one day solve algorithmic problems which even the biggest supercomputers today can’t manage. But how do you test a quantum computer to...
For the first time, a team of researchers at the Max-Planck Institute (MPI) for Polymer Research in Mainz, Germany, has succeeded in making an integrated circuit (IC) from just a monolayer of a semiconducting polymer via a bottom-up, self-assembly approach.
In the self-assembly process, the semiconducting polymer arranges itself into an ordered monolayer in a transistor. The transistors are binary switches used...
