International Simulation Conference

A conference which will showcase current developments in the field of medical simulation training will be hosted by the University of Hertfordshire next week.

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. For further information, please contact the conference administrator on 01707 28 6393, email: or visit the

Im Focus: ILA 2018: Laser alternative to hexavalent chromium coating

At the 2018 ILA Berlin Air Show from April 25–29, the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT is showcasing extreme high-speed Laser Material Deposition (EHLA): A video documents how for metal components that are highly loaded, EHLA has already proved itself as an alternative to hard chrome plating, which is now allowed only under special conditions.

When the EU restricted the use of hexavalent chromium compounds to special applications requiring authorization, the move prompted a rethink in the surface...

Im Focus: Radar for navigation support from autonomous flying drones

At the ILA Berlin, hall 4, booth 202, Fraunhofer FHR will present two radar sensors for navigation support of drones. The sensors are valuable components in the implementation of autonomous flying drones: they function as obstacle detectors to prevent collisions. Radar sensors also operate reliably in restricted visibility, e.g. in foggy or dusty conditions. Due to their ability to measure distances with high precision, the radar sensors can also be used as altimeters when other sources of information such as barometers or GPS are not available or cannot operate optimally.

Drones play an increasingly important role in the area of logistics and services. Well-known logistic companies place great hope in these compact, aerial...
