International symposium: trends in spatial analysis and modelling for a more sustainable land use

20.05.2015

An international symposium to be held in Dresden from 11 to 13 November 2015 will address the recent trends in spatial analysis and modelling of settlements and infrastructure and their benefit for a sustainable land use. Suggested topics for presentation should be submitted by 15 June.

The “International Land Use Symposium (ILUS) 2015” organised by the Leibniz Institute of Ecological Urban and Regional Development (IOER) will be held in Dresden from 11 to 13 November 2015. It is financially supported by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (German Research Foundation, DFG).

In particular, the interdisciplinary meeting will examine new ideas in overlapping fields of studies with the goal of advancing our understanding of built-up areas, and how recent developments in spatial analysis and modelling can lead to sustainable resource management, better support of planning and urban and regional development, enhanced spatial information and knowledge, and optimized strategies, instruments and tools.

The call for abstracts has been published on the symposium website (www.ioer.de/ilus2015), where suggested topics for English-language presentations can be submitted until 15 June. Early-stage researchers are also encouraged to contribute. Selected contributions will be published in a special issue.

The International Symposium 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.

Keynote addresses will be held by internationally renowned scientists in the field of spatial analysis such as Denise Pumain from the Panthéon-Sorbonne University in Paris/France, Harvey J. Miller from the Ohio State University in Columbus/USA, Itzhak Benenson from the Tel-Aviv University/Israel as well as Bin Jiang from the University of Gävle/Sweden.

Im Focus: Can we see monkeys from space? Emerging technologies to map biodiversity

An international team of scientists has proposed a new multi-disciplinary approach in which an array of new technologies will allow us to map biodiversity and the risks that wildlife is facing at the scale of whole landscapes. The findings are published in Nature Ecology and Evolution. This international research is led by the Kunming Institute of Zoology from China, University of East Anglia, University of Leicester and the Leibniz Institute for Zoo and Wildlife Research.

Using a combination of satellite and ground data, the team proposes that it is now possible to map biodiversity with an accuracy that has not been previously...

Im Focus: Climate satellite: Tracking methane with robust laser technology

Heatwaves in the Arctic, longer periods of vegetation in Europe, severe floods in West Africa – starting in 2021, scientists want to explore the emissions of the greenhouse gas methane with the German-French satellite MERLIN. This is made possible by a new robust laser system of the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT in Aachen, which achieves unprecedented measurement accuracy.

Methane is primarily the result of the decomposition of organic matter. The gas has a 25 times greater warming potential than carbon dioxide, but is not as...

Im Focus: How protons move through a fuel cell

Hydrogen is regarded as the energy source of the future: It is produced with solar power and can be used to generate heat and electricity in fuel cells. Empa researchers have now succeeded in decoding the movement of hydrogen ions in crystals – a key step towards more efficient energy conversion in the hydrogen industry of tomorrow.

As charge carriers, electrons and ions play the leading role in electrochemical energy storage devices and converters such as batteries and fuel cells. Proton...

Im Focus: A unique data centre for cosmological simulations

Scientists from the Excellence Cluster Universe at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität Munich have establised "Cosmowebportal", a unique data centre for cosmological simulations located at the Leibniz Supercomputing Centre (LRZ) of the Bavarian Academy of Sciences. The complete results of a series of large hydrodynamical cosmological simulations are available, with data volumes typically exceeding several hundred terabytes. Scientists worldwide can interactively explore these complex simulations via a web interface and directly access the results.

With current telescopes, scientists can observe our Universe’s galaxies and galaxy clusters and their distribution along an invisible cosmic web. From the...
