Started in 2004, the International Borneo Business Conference (IBBC) has emerged as a platform for academicians, researchers, practitioners, policy makers to interact and exchange viewpoints and research findings on contemporary business and economics issues related to the Borneo region and the global world. IBBC is a biennial conference and the previous three conferences were successfully held in 2004, 2006, 2008, 2010 and 2012.
The 6th International Borneo Business Conference (IBBC) 2014 is organised by the Faculty of Business and Economics, University Malaysia Sarawak (UNIMAS), on August 20 - 21, 2014. IBBC 2014 continues its tradition of bringing together participants from local and international universities, private and government institutions or agencies and various industrial sectors to exchange their experiences and ideas.
The theme of IBBC 2014 is "Global Business and Economic Transformation". In conjunction to the recent developments in the business and economic environments, the theme is chosen to solicit active and dynamic discussions on issues pertaining to global climate change, global economic and financial crises and their impacts on the business and economic climates in the Borneo as well as the global world.
The conference accepts working papers on global business, e-commerce, entrepreneurship, internet marketing, global marketing, global financial management, regional economics, global economics, financial economics, Islamic finance and economics, and any other business and economics studies.
The International Borneo Business Conference (IBBC) 2014 will be held on August 20 - 21, 2014.

Our brains house extremely complex neuronal circuits, whose detailed structures are still largely unknown. This is especially true for the so-called cerebral cortex of mammals, where among other things vision, thoughts or spatial orientation are being computed. Here the rules by which nerve cells are connected to each other are only partly understood. A team of scientists around Moritz Helmstaedter at the Frankfiurt Max Planck Institute for Brain Research and Helene Schmidt (Humboldt University in Berlin) have now discovered a surprisingly precise nerve cell connectivity pattern in the part of the cerebral cortex that is responsible for orienting the individual animal or human in space.
The researchers report online in Nature (Schmidt et al., 2017. Axonal synapse sorting in medial entorhinal cortex, DOI: 10.1038/nature24005) that synapses in...

Using ultrafast flashes of laser and x-ray radiation, scientists at the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics (Garching, Germany) took snapshots of the briefest electron motion inside a solid material to date. The electron motion lasted only 750 billionths of the billionth of a second before it fainted, setting a new record of human capability to capture ultrafast processes inside solids!
When x-rays shine onto solid materials or large molecules, an electron is pushed away from its original place near the nucleus of the atom, leaving a hole...
For the first time, physicists have successfully imaged spiral magnetic ordering in a multiferroic material. These materials are considered highly promising candidates for future data storage media. The researchers were able to prove their findings using unique quantum sensors that were developed at Basel University and that can analyze electromagnetic fields on the nanometer scale. The results – obtained by scientists from the University of Basel’s Department of Physics, the Swiss Nanoscience Institute, the University of Montpellier and several laboratories from University Paris-Saclay – were recently published in the journal Nature.
Multiferroics are materials that simultaneously react to electric and magnetic fields. These two properties are rarely found together, and their combined...
