Held every two years, the conference and exhibition International Conference on Ocean Energy (ICOE) is being hosted by the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI) in association with the European Ocean Energy Association (EUOEA) in Dublin this year after venues in Bremerhaven, Brest and Bilbao.
Over 100 speakers from 25 countries and over 750 international experts and world-leading companies in ocean energy are expected. There they will discuss how best to progress this emerging industry with representatives of the European Commission and other international politicians, i.a. Ireland’s Minister for Communications, Energy and Natural Resources Pat Rabbitte TD and Canadian Minister of State Bernard Valcourt.
Fraunhofer IWES will be present with a joint stand together with British consulting company for renewable energy IT Power. Besides the information exchange at the stand, IWES researchers are going to hold oral and poster presentations regarding the research projects MaRINET (European offshore wind and marine energy infrastructure project), ORECCA (international network for offshore renewables) and Kobold II (tidal turbine for the electric power supply of a village in Indonesia) as well as wave prediction methods and measurement of dynamic effects in tidal currents (turbulences and waves).
The ICOE 2012 takes place from October 17th to 19th 2012 in the Convention Centre Dublin, Ireland.

Munich Physicists have developed a novel electron microscope that can visualize electromagnetic fields oscillating at frequencies of billions of cycles per second.
Temporally varying electromagnetic fields are the driving force behind the whole of electronics. Their polarities can change at mind-bogglingly fast rates, and...
Breakup of continents with two speed: Continents initially stretch very slowly along the future splitting zone, but then move apart very quickly before the onset of rupture. The final speed can be up to 20 times faster than in the first, slow extension phase.phases
Present-day continents were shaped hundreds of millions of years ago as the supercontinent Pangaea broke apart. Derived from Pangaea’s main fragments Gondwana...
Scaffolding and specialised workers help with the delivery – Heidelberg biochemists gain new insights into biogenesis
A type of scaffolding on which specialised workers ply their trade helps in the manufacturing process of the two subunits from which the ribosome – the protein...
Scientists at the Helmholtz Zentrum München have developed a new mass spectrometry imaging method which, for the first time, makes it possible to analyze hundreds of metabolites in fixed tissue samples. Their findings, published in the journal Nature Protocols, explain the new access to metabolic information, which will offer previously unexploited potential for tissue-based research and molecular diagnostics.
In biomedical research, working with tissue samples is indispensable because it permits insights into the biological reality of patients, for example, in...
Chemists at the University of Basel have succeeded in using computer simulations to elucidate transient structures in proteins. In the journal Angewandte Chemie, the researchers set out how computer simulations of details at the atomic level can be used to understand proteins’ modes of action.
Using computational chemistry, it is possible to characterize the motion of individual atoms of a molecule. Today, the latest simulation techniques allow...
