The sustainable land use is a pressing challenge all over the world. To handle it in an appropriate manner spatial data is needed. The International Land Use Symposium (ILUS) 2017 to be held in Dresden from 1st to 3rd November 2017 will address the spatial data modelling and visualisation to enlighten sustainable policy making. Suggested topics for presentation should be submitted by 31 July.
ILUS 2017 will examine new concepts in overlapping fields of studies which focus on the question how recent developments in spatial analysis and modelling can lead to sustainable resource management and better support of planning and urban and regional development.
The programme consists of three main topics: Big Data and the City as a Complex System, Historic Settlement and Landscape Analysis, Morphological Analysis. An open section provides space for other relevant contributions.
The symposium will be opened with contributions of renowned international scientists in the area of spatial analysis and spatial planning. Keynote speeches will be held for example by Nikos A. Salingaros, University of Texas/USA, Luís M. Bettencourt, Santa Fe Institute/USA, Anna Hersperger, Swiss Federal Institute for Forest, Snow and Landscape Research, Marc Barthélemy, Institut de Physique Theorique/France, Bin Jiang, University of Gävle/Sweden, and Dr. Serge Salat, Urban Morphology and Complex Systems Institute, Paris.
Call for Abstracts
Suggested topics for English-language presentations can be submitted at the latest by 31 July 2017. Early-stage researchers are encouraged to contribute. Selected contributions will be published in a special issue. The detailed call for abstracts is published on the symposium website: http://www.ilus2017.ioer.info.
Early Bird Registration until 31 August 2017
The registration for participants without own contribution is possible from now on, too. The early bird fee (registration by 31 August 2017) is 300 Euro, for students (including PhD students) 150 Euro. The regular fee (starting from 01 September 2017) is 350 Euro, for students 200 Euro.
The biennial International Land Use Symposium brings together leading academics in the fields of GIScience and spatial planning. Objective of the interdisciplinary conference is to advance the understanding of built-up areas and to develop new ideas for the sustainable use of the precious resource soil. ILUS brings together leading academics and interested attendees for presentation, discussion, and collaborative networking in the fields of spatial sciences, environmental studies, geography, cartography, GIScience, urban planning, architecture, which relate to investigations of settlements and infrastructure.
The symposium is organized by the Leibniz Institute of Ecological Urban and Regional development (IOER).

University of Maryland researchers contribute to historic detection of gravitational waves and light created by event
On August 17, 2017, at 12:41:04 UTC, scientists made the first direct observation of a merger between two neutron stars--the dense, collapsed cores that remain...
Seven new papers describe the first-ever detection of light from a gravitational wave source. The event, caused by two neutron stars colliding and merging together, was dubbed GW170817 because it sent ripples through space-time that reached Earth on 2017 August 17. Around the world, hundreds of excited astronomers mobilized quickly and were able to observe the event using numerous telescopes, providing a wealth of new data.
Previous detections of gravitational waves have all involved the merger of two black holes, a feat that won the 2017 Nobel Prize in Physics earlier this month....
Material defects in end products can quickly result in failures in many areas of industry, and have a massive impact on the safe use of their products. This is why, in the field of quality assurance, intelligent, nondestructive sensor systems play a key role. They allow testing components and parts in a rapid and cost-efficient manner without destroying the actual product or changing its surface. Experts from the Fraunhofer IZFP in Saarbrücken will be presenting two exhibits at the Blechexpo in Stuttgart from 7–10 November 2017 that allow fast, reliable, and automated characterization of materials and detection of defects (Hall 5, Booth 5306).
When quality testing uses time-consuming destructive test methods, it can result in enormous costs due to damaging or destroying the products. And given that...

Scientists from the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics, using high precision laser spectroscopy of atomic hydrogen, confirm the surprisingly small value of the proton radius determined from muonic hydrogen.
It was one of the breakthroughs of the year 2010: Laser spectroscopy of muonic hydrogen resulted in a value for the proton charge radius that was significantly...
