Invitation to the STI 2013 Berlin

10.07.2013
The Institute for Research Information and Quality Assurance (iFQ) cordially invites you today to the STI 2013---the 18th Science and Technology Indicators Conference! iFQ as a member of the European Network of Indicator Designers is proud to organize this international conference in the field of science and technology studies this year.

Under the heading "Translational twists and turns: Science as a socio-economic endeavor" the STI 2013 addresses questions of measuring scientific performance and its societal and economic impact. Which techniques, indicators, and benchmarks are appropriate for performance measurement and assessment, what is important when designing and applying them, and how do they affect rewarding and sanctioning in the science system?

80 international scholars selected by peer review are going to present their answers to these questions from September 4 to 6 in Berlin, Germany.

The key topics of the STI 2013 are:

-- University assessment, in particular, with regard to competitions for funding, rankings and ratings, benchmarking, performance-based funding systems, and evaluations;

-- Individual assessment, in particular, with regard to single scholars, the adequacy and the challenges of indicators and techniques taking into account special disciplinary standards;

-- Determining and measuring translation benefits of science.

The complete program is online now! Please visit: http://www.2013.sticonference.org.

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...
