4th International Conference on World-Class Universities (WCU-4)

07.06.2011
The conference addresses the issues concerning World-Class Universities from national perspective

In the past decade, the term “world-class university” has become a catchphrase. Not simply because it represents excellence in teaching and research, but more importantly because it also signifies university’s capacity to compete in the age of global higher education marketplace.

Consequently, many national governments have developed policies and special initiatives to promote and support the creation of “world-class university”, and an increasing number of universities have included becoming “world-class” in their mission statements and have begun implementing various measures.

It is in the above mentioned context that the 1st International Conference on World-Class Universities (WCU-1) was initiated and organized in June 2005 by the Center for World-Class Universities of Shanghai Jiao Tong University. Subsequently, the 2nd and 3rd International Conference on World-Class Universities (WCU-2 and WCU-3) were convened in 2007 and 2009 respectively. These conferences have attracted hundreds of participants, including university presidents, government officials, top scholars and policy researchers, from more than 40 countries.

Contributions to previous WCU conferences are indexed in Conference Proceedings Citation Index - Social Science and Humanities (CPCI-SSH) by Web of Science.
The Center for World-Class Universities of Shanghai Jiao Tong University is pleased to announce that the 4th International Conference on World-Class Universities (WCU-4) will be held from October 30 to November 2, 2011 in Shanghai, China [arrival on October 30 and recommended departure on November 2].

The conference will again bring together researchers, university leaders, policy makers and other stake-holders from various regions to discuss major developments related directly and indirectly to world-class universities.

The theme of WCU-4 is “Different Approaches to a Shared Goal”. The conference sessions will address the issues concerning World-Class Universities from national perspective, institutional perspective and ranking perspective. Those who intend to participate in WCU-4 are required to register on the conference website before August 1, 2011.

Im Focus: Attoseconds break into atomic interior

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...

Im Focus: Good vibrations feel the force

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...

Im Focus: Developing reliable quantum computers

International research team makes important step on the path to solving certification problems

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...

Im Focus: In best circles: First integrated circuit from self-assembled polymer

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...

Im Focus: Demonstration of a single molecule piezoelectric effect

Breakthrough provides a new concept of the design of molecular motors, sensors and electricity generators at nanoscale

Researchers from the Institute of Organic Chemistry and Biochemistry of the CAS (IOCB Prague), Institute of Physics of the CAS (IP CAS) and Palacký University...
