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.

A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.
Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...
In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.
“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...
The Max Planck Institute for Physics (MPP) is opening up a new research field. A workshop from November 21 - 22, 2016 will mark the start of activities for an innovative axion experiment. Axions are still only purely hypothetical particles. Their detection could solve two fundamental problems in particle physics: What dark matter consists of and why it has not yet been possible to directly observe a CP violation for the strong interaction.
The “MADMAX” project is the MPP’s commitment to axion research. Axions are so far only a theoretical prediction and are difficult to detect: on the one hand,...
Broadband rotational spectroscopy unravels structural reshaping of isolated molecules in the gas phase to accommodate water

The efficiency of power electronic systems is not solely dependent on electrical efficiency but also on weight, for example, in mobile systems. When the weight of relevant components and devices in airplanes, for instance, is reduced, fuel savings can be achieved and correspondingly greenhouse gas emissions decreased. New materials and components based on gallium nitride (GaN) can help to reduce weight and increase the efficiency. With these new materials, power electronic switches can be operated at higher switching frequency, resulting in higher power density and lower material costs.
Researchers at the Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems ISE together with partners have investigated how these materials can be used to make power...
