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).

MPQ scientists achieve long storage times for photonic quantum bits which break the lower bound for direct teleportation in a global quantum network.

Tiny pores at a cell's entryway act as miniature bouncers, letting in some electrically charged atoms--ions--but blocking others. Operating as exquisitely sensitive filters, these "ion channels" play a critical role in biological functions such as muscle contraction and the firing of brain cells.
To rapidly transport the right ions through the cell membrane, the tiny channels rely on a complex interplay between the ions and surrounding molecules,...
The miniaturization of the current technology of storage media is hindered by fundamental limits of quantum mechanics. A new approach consists in using so-called spin-crossover molecules as the smallest possible storage unit. Similar to normal hard drives, these special molecules can save information via their magnetic state. A research team from Kiel University has now managed to successfully place a new class of spin-crossover molecules onto a surface and to improve the molecule’s storage capacity. The storage density of conventional hard drives could therefore theoretically be increased by more than one hundred fold. The study has been published in the scientific journal Nano Letters.
Over the past few years, the building blocks of storage media have gotten ever smaller. But further miniaturization of the current technology is hindered by...
