The Irago Conference, November 15-16, 2012

04.10.2012
Confirmed speakers and information on graduate student sessions and excursions

Organised by the Electronics-Inspired Interdisciplinary Research Institute (EIIRIS) at Toyohashi University of Technology, The Irago Conference aims to enhance mutual understanding between scientists, engineers, policy makers, and experts from a wide spectrum of pure and applied sciences in order to resolve major global issues.

The Irago Conference is delighted to welcome a whole range of speakers promising discussion and debate on topics ranging from energy and natural resources to public health and disaster prevention.
Selected speakers and topics include:

Yasuaki P. Kohama: "Future sustainable energy system" (New Industry Creation Hatchery Center, Tohoku University, Japan)

Daniel E. Morse: “Biologically inspired, nano-structured materials for energy and photonics” (University of California, Santa Barbara, USA)

Masayuki Kawamoto: "Sustainable Mobility Society with Demand side Energy Management" (Toyota Motor Corporation, Japan)

Sakae Tanaka: "Future prospect 2012-2025 -How will the World and our business change in future" (AQUABIT Corporation, Japan)

Keiji Aoki : “"A Development of fully automated truck platoon system with closed gap distance" (Japan Automobile Research Institute, Japan)

Yoshitsugu Hayashi: “Energy Minimum Mobile Society“ (Nagoya University, Japan)

The Graduate Student Session

The Irago Conference Graduate Student Session offers a platform for graduate students to describe their latest findings as oral presentations. The session-which is being organized by doctoral students and post-doctoral researchers is scheduled for lunchtime on Thursday 15 November 2012.

Talks during this Graduate Student Session will consist of 10 minute presentations followed by 4 minutes for discussion. At the end of the talks the audience will vote and select one of the speakers for the ‘Best Student Presentation Award’.

Now, remember to indicate whether you would like to make your presentation at this session in the abstract submission procedure. Refer to the ‘submission of abstracts’ page of the conference website: http://www.apirc.jp/abst-submission.html (direct link below)

Im Focus: Carbon Nanotubes Turn Electrical Current into Light-emitting Quasi-particles

Strong light-matter coupling in these semiconducting tubes may hold the key to electrically pumped lasers

Light-matter quasi-particles can be generated electrically in semiconducting carbon nanotubes. Material scientists and physicists from Heidelberg University...

Im Focus: Flexible proximity sensor creates smart surfaces

Fraunhofer IPA has developed a proximity sensor made from silicone and carbon nanotubes (CNT) which detects objects and determines their position. The materials and printing process used mean that the sensor is extremely flexible, economical and can be used for large surfaces. Industry and research partners can use and further develop this innovation straight away.

At first glance, the proximity sensor appears to be nothing special: a thin, elastic layer of silicone onto which black square surfaces are printed, but these...

Im Focus: 3-D scanning with water

3-D shape acquisition using water displacement as the shape sensor for the reconstruction of complex objects

A global team of computer scientists and engineers have developed an innovative technique that more completely reconstructs challenging 3D objects. An ancient...

Im Focus: Manipulating Electron Spins Without Loss of Information

Physicists have developed a new technique that uses electrical voltages to control the electron spin on a chip. The newly-developed method provides protection from spin decay, meaning that the contained information can be maintained and transmitted over comparatively large distances, as has been demonstrated by a team from the University of Basel’s Department of Physics and the Swiss Nanoscience Institute. The results have been published in Physical Review X.

For several years, researchers have been trying to use the spin of an electron to store and transmit information. The spin of each electron is always coupled...

Im Focus: The proton precisely weighted

What is the mass of a proton? Scientists from Germany and Japan successfully did an important step towards the most exact knowledge of this fundamental constant. By means of precision measurements on a single proton, they could improve the precision by a factor of three and also correct the existing value.

To determine the mass of a single proton still more accurate – a group of physicists led by Klaus Blaum and Sven Sturm of the Max Planck Institute for Nuclear...
