Experiences, innovation, and trends in software and systems engineering will be the focus at Fraunhofer IESE in Kaiserslautern when the conference "Software Engineering 2009" opens on 02 March.
"Guaranteed Quality - A Requirement of Industrial Software Development" is the motto of this meeting of experts from research and industry in the context of the well-established professional conference organized by the Gesellschaft für Informatik e.V. Experts from industry and research will participate in the high-level, multifaceted conference program, including Prof. Matthias Jarke from RWTH Aachen, who will deliver the keynote address.
This year, the Software Engineering 2009 conference as a platform for scientists and users will be co-organized by the chair Software Engineering: Dependability of the University of Kaiserslautern and the Fraunhofer Institute for Experimental Software Engineering IESE. "With its diverse program for scientists and industrial practitioners, the conference will make a sustainable contribution to strengthening software technology", is the conviction voiced by Professor Peter Liggesmeyer, conference manager and director of Fraunhofer IESE.
The high-quality technical-scientific program put together by a panel of experts will be enhanced by invited talks given by leading software engineers from renowned industrial companies. The speakers will include Oliver Mäckel from Siemens AG and Dr. Eric Sax from MBTech Group, who will report on their practical experiences especially in the context of the central aspect of software quality assurance.
The large degree of interaction of this conference has a long tradition - in numerous workshops and tutorials to be held during the first two days of the conference, participants will have multiple opportunities to contribute their own expertise and participate in exchanges regarding current trends. A well-established part of the event is the Industry Day: 15 presentations by industrial users from different domains underline the practical relevance of this conference.
Approximately 200 participants from business, research, and politics are expected at Fraunhofer IESE for Software Engineering 2009. In addition to the professional aspects, the attractive social program also deserves mentioning. The conference dinner, for example, will take place at the newly renovated Hambacher Schloss - the historical "birthplace of German democracy".

In a recent publication in the renowned journal Optica, scientists of Leibniz-Institute of Photonic Technology (Leibniz IPHT) in Jena showed that they can accurately control the optical properties of liquid-core fiber lasers and therefore their spectral band width by temperature and pressure tuning.
Already last year, the researchers provided experimental proof of a new dynamic of hybrid solitons– temporally and spectrally stationary light waves resulting...

Moving into its fourth decade, AchemAsia is setting out for new horizons: The International Expo and Innovation Forum for Sustainable Chemical Production will take place from 21-23 May 2019 in Shanghai, China. With an updated event profile, the eleventh edition focusses on topics that are especially relevant for the Chinese process industry, putting a strong emphasis on sustainability and innovation.
Founded in 1989 as a spin-off of ACHEMA to cater to the needs of China’s then developing industry, AchemAsia has since grown into a platform where the latest...
The BMBF-funded OWICELLS project was successfully completed with a final presentation at the BMW plant in Munich. The presentation demonstrated a Li-Fi communication with a mobile robot, while the robot carried out usual production processes (welding, moving and testing parts) in a 5x5m² production cell. The robust, optical wireless transmission is based on spatial diversity; in other words, data is sent and received simultaneously by several LEDs and several photodiodes. The system can transmit data at more than 100 Mbit/s and five milliseconds latency.
Modern production technologies in the automobile industry must become more flexible in order to fulfil individual customer requirements.
An international team of scientists has discovered a new way to transfer image information through multimodal fibers with almost no distortion - even if the fiber is bent. The results of the study, to which scientist from the Leibniz-Institute of Photonic Technology Jena (Leibniz IPHT) contributed, were published on 6thJune in the highly-cited journal Physical Review Letters.
Endoscopes allow doctors to see into a patient’s body like through a keyhole. Typically, the images are transmitted via a bundle of several hundreds of optical...
