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: Fizzy soda water could be key to clean manufacture of flat wonder material: Graphene

Whether you call it effervescent, fizzy, or sparkling, carbonated water is making a comeback as a beverage. Aside from quenching thirst, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have discovered a new use for these "bubbly" concoctions that will have major impact on the manufacturer of the world's thinnest, flattest, and one most useful materials -- graphene.

As graphene's popularity grows as an advanced "wonder" material, the speed and quality at which it can be manufactured will be paramount. With that in mind,...

Im Focus: Exotic quantum states made from light: Physicists create optical “wells” for a super-photon

Physicists at the University of Bonn have managed to create optical hollows and more complex patterns into which the light of a Bose-Einstein condensate flows. The creation of such highly low-loss structures for light is a prerequisite for complex light circuits, such as for quantum information processing for a new generation of computers. The researchers are now presenting their results in the journal Nature Photonics.

Light particles (photons) occur as tiny, indivisible portions. Many thousands of these light portions can be merged to form a single super-photon if they are...

Im Focus: Circular RNA linked to brain function

For the first time, scientists have shown that circular RNA is linked to brain function. When a RNA molecule called Cdr1as was deleted from the genome of mice, the animals had problems filtering out unnecessary information – like patients suffering from neuropsychiatric disorders.

While hundreds of circular RNAs (circRNAs) are abundant in mammalian brains, one big question has remained unanswered: What are they actually good for? In the...

Im Focus: RAVAN CubeSat measures Earth's outgoing energy

An experimental small satellite has successfully collected and delivered data on a key measurement for predicting changes in Earth's climate.

The Radiometer Assessment using Vertically Aligned Nanotubes (RAVAN) CubeSat was launched into low-Earth orbit on Nov. 11, 2016, in order to test new...

Im Focus: Scientists shine new light on the “other high temperature superconductor”

A study led by scientists of the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) at the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science in Hamburg presents evidence of the coexistence of superconductivity and “charge-density-waves” in compounds of the poorly-studied family of bismuthates. This observation opens up new perspectives for a deeper understanding of the phenomenon of high-temperature superconductivity, a topic which is at the core of condensed matter research since more than 30 years. The paper by Nicoletti et al has been published in the PNAS.

Since the beginning of the 20th century, superconductivity had been observed in some metals at temperatures only a few degrees above the absolute zero (minus...
