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: Powerful IT security for the car of the future – research alliance develops new approaches

The more electronics steer, accelerate and brake cars, the more important it is to protect them against cyber-attacks. That is why 15 partners from industry and academia will work together over the next three years on new approaches to IT security in self-driving cars. The joint project goes by the name Security For Connected, Autonomous Cars (SecForCARs) and has funding of €7.2 million from the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research. Infineon is leading the project.

Vehicles already offer diverse communication interfaces and more and more automated functions, such as distance and lane-keeping assist systems. At the same...

Im Focus: Molecular switch will facilitate the development of pioneering electro-optical devices

A research team led by physicists at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) has developed molecular nanoswitches that can be toggled between two structurally different states using an applied voltage. They can serve as the basis for a pioneering class of devices that could replace silicon-based components with organic molecules.

The development of new electronic technologies drives the incessant reduction of functional component sizes. In the context of an international collaborative...

Im Focus: LZH showcases laser material processing of tomorrow at the LASYS 2018

At the LASYS 2018, from June 5th to 7th, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) will be showcasing processes for the laser material processing of tomorrow in hall 4 at stand 4E75. With blown bomb shells the LZH will present first results of a research project on civil security.

At this year's LASYS, the LZH will exhibit light-based processes such as cutting, welding, ablation and structuring as well as additive manufacturing for...

Im Focus: Self-illuminating pixels for a new display generation

There are videos on the internet that can make one marvel at technology. For example, a smartphone is casually bent around the arm or a thin-film display is rolled in all directions and with almost every diameter. From the user's point of view, this looks fantastic. From a professional point of view, however, the question arises: Is that already possible?

At Display Week 2018, scientists from the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Polymer Research IAP will be demonstrating today’s technological possibilities and...

Im Focus: Explanation for puzzling quantum oscillations has been found

So-called quantum many-body scars allow quantum systems to stay out of equilibrium much longer, explaining experiment | Study published in Nature Physics

Recently, researchers from Harvard and MIT succeeded in trapping a record 53 atoms and individually controlling their quantum state, realizing what is called a...
