The POWER-GEN Asia Conference is the regions most important conference dedicated to the power generation and transmission and distribution industries.
Attracting leading international speakers and delegates from throughout Asia and around the world, the conference is a great hub for knowledge sharing and offers excellent networking opportunities.
Major organisations and high level influencers congregate at POWER-GEN Asia, the most prestigious event in the power generation industry. It is your opportunity to make an impact into this multi-billion dollar market sector.
POWER-GEN Asia is considered the most important event for the power generation industry.
Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, plays host to the 16th POWER-GEN Asia in October 2008 and is set to be another great event, as the region continues to develop at a rapid rate.
In the Ninth Malaysian Plan the Ministry will continue to further enhance the sustainable development of the energy sector, through an optimal energy mix and improving the performance of the transmission system, to enable them to contribute towards strengthening economic growth.
It will also see the implementation of the rural electrification programme being intensified to achieve 95.1% rural electrification by 2010.
The increase in demand of electricity in Malaysia is forecast at 7.8% per year to reach 20,087 MW in 2010. The Malaysia Ministry for Energy, Water & Communications is undertaking a $10 billion investment programme, from Government and public enterprises, aiming to have an installed capacity of 25,258 MW.
Malaysia is part of the ASEAN region undergoing extraordinary growth in the demand for power and energy, with over US$50 billion estimated investment required to meet current demands. POWER-GEN Asia offers you the opportunity to meet new customers and a new way of developing business opportunities.
POWER-GEN Asia is now accepting abstracts for the Conference. For more information, visit: http://pga08.events.pennnet.com/fl//index.cfm

The WHO reports an estimated 429,000 malaria deaths each year. The disease mostly affects tropical and subtropical regions and in particular the African continent. The Fraunhofer Institute for Silicate Research ISC teamed up with the Fraunhofer Institute for Molecular Biology and Applied Ecology IME and the Institute of Tropical Medicine at the University of Tübingen for a new test method to detect malaria parasites in blood. The idea of the research project “NanoFRET” is to develop a highly sensitive and reliable rapid diagnostic test so that patient treatment can begin as early as possible.
Malaria is caused by parasites transmitted by mosquito bite. The most dangerous form of malaria is malaria tropica. Left untreated, it is fatal in most cases....
The formation of stars in distant galaxies is still largely unexplored. For the first time, astron-omers at the University of Geneva have now been able to closely observe a star system six billion light-years away. In doing so, they are confirming earlier simulations made by the University of Zurich. One special effect is made possible by the multiple reflections of images that run through the cosmos like a snake.
Today, astronomers have a pretty accurate idea of how stars were formed in the recent cosmic past. But do these laws also apply to older galaxies? For around a...
Just because someone is smart and well-motivated doesn't mean he or she can learn the visual skills needed to excel at tasks like matching fingerprints, interpreting medical X-rays, keeping track of aircraft on radar displays or forensic face matching.
That is the implication of a new study which shows for the first time that there is a broad range of differences in people's visual ability and that these...
Computer Tomography (CT) is a standard procedure in hospitals, but so far, the technology has not been suitable for imaging extremely small objects. In PNAS, a team from the Technical University of Munich (TUM) describes a Nano-CT device that creates three-dimensional x-ray images at resolutions up to 100 nanometers. The first test application: Together with colleagues from the University of Kassel and Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht the researchers analyzed the locomotory system of a velvet worm.
During a CT analysis, the object under investigation is x-rayed and a detector measures the respective amount of radiation absorbed from various angles....
The quantum world is fragile; error correction codes are needed to protect the information stored in a quantum object from the deteriorating effects of noise. Quantum physicists in Innsbruck have developed a protocol to pass quantum information between differently encoded building blocks of a future quantum computer, such as processors and memories. Scientists may use this protocol in the future to build a data bus for quantum computers. The researchers have published their work in the journal Nature Communications.
Future quantum computers will be able to solve problems where conventional computers fail today. We are still far away from any large-scale implementation,...
