SESAM (Society in Europe for Simulation Applied to Medicine) 2008, which will attract delegates from over thirty countries, will take place from 19-21 June in the University of Hertfordshire’s new Hertfordshire Intensive Care & Emergency Centre (HICESC), which is the largest and most advanced medical simulation facility in the UK.
“HICESC is a truly multidisciplinary centre which probably trains a wider range of health professionals than anywhere else in Europe, so it is fitting that we host this major medical simulation conference this year,” said Guillaume Alinier, Chair of SESAM 2008, and University of Hertfordshire HICESC Co-ordinator and National Teaching Fellow.
The conference will host a combination of themed sessions and workshops focusing on new developments in medical simulation across the world, from an educational and technological aspect.
Keynote addresses will be given by Professor Sidarto Bambang Oetomo, from Eindhoven University of Technology, the Netherlands, on The Essentials of team training, the perspective of a neonatologist; Professor David Nicol, from Strathclyde University, on New thinking about assessment and feedback in higher education, Professor Kerstin Dautenhahn, Professor in Artificial Intelligence at the University of Hertfordshire will lecture on Kaspar: a humanoid robot used in healthcare applications and robotics research and Professor Tim Wilson, the University’s Vice-Chancellor, will deliver a keynote on Adding value through collaboration in simulation – a CEO’s perspective.SESAM 2008 will be hosted by HICESC, the University of Hertfordshire, Hatfield, AL10 9AB.

Researchers from the University of Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Aarhus in Denmark, have synthesized a new superconducting material by growing a few layers of an antiferromagnetic transition-metal chalcogenide on a bismuth-based topological insulator, both being non-superconducting materials.
While superconductivity and magnetism are generally believed to be mutually exclusive, surprisingly, in this new material, superconducting correlations...
Laser-driving of semimetals allows creating novel quasiparticle states within condensed matter systems and switching between different states on ultrafast time scales
Studying properties of fundamental particles in condensed matter systems is a promising approach to quantum field theory. Quasiparticles offer the opportunity...
Among the general public, solar thermal energy is currently associated with dark blue, rectangular collectors on building roofs. Technologies are needed for aesthetically high quality architecture which offer the architect more room for manoeuvre when it comes to low- and plus-energy buildings. With the “ArKol” project, researchers at Fraunhofer ISE together with partners are currently developing two façade collectors for solar thermal energy generation, which permit a high degree of design flexibility: a strip collector for opaque façade sections and a solar thermal blind for transparent sections. The current state of the two developments will be presented at the BAU 2017 trade fair.
As part of the “ArKol – development of architecturally highly integrated façade collectors with heat pipes” project, Fraunhofer ISE together with its partners...
