Solutions for our traffic problems and an environmentally friendly mobility can only be found in networks that integrate planning, technical, and socioeconomic know-how. This is the approach that the Centre for Transportation Research at the University of Stuttgart (FOVUS) has taken.
The nine member institutes are hosting the 4th international symposium “Networks for Mobility 2008” on 25 to 26 September. Around 150 participants from all over the world are going to present and discuss solutions to the topics of transportation system planning, traffic control and telematics, and transportation and the environment. The International Association of Public Transport (UITP) is a joint organiser.
From new city models to Stuttgart 21
The english-speaking conference is going to open its doors at 9.30 AM on 25 September 2008. FOVUS spokesperson Prof. Ullrich Martin will give an introductory speech, followed by Rudolf Köberle, Parliamentary State Secretary at the Ministry of the Interior of Baden-Württemberg. Prof. Johann Jessen of the Institute of Urban Planning and Design is then going to start the academic sessions with a presentation on “Mobility and Urbanity – Rethinking Models of the City”.
The conference will continue at 11 AM with presentations on the impact of mega-projects. Wolfgang Arnold (Stuttgarter Straßenbahnen/SSB) is going to talk about a model of integration between land-use and transport, Ulrich Weidmann will provide new insights into the Swiss NEAT project (“Neue Alpen-Transversale”: the new crossing of the Alps). Peter Head (United Kingdom) will then introduce the Chinese City Dongtan as the world’s first eco-city. Starting from 9 AM on 26 September, experts from Japan, Austria, Norway and Germany are going to give lectures on traffic management with focus on the improvement of urban life and smart growth strategies in transportation.
The plenary sessions are complemented by parallel sessions and poster presentations. A detailed program is available at www.uni-stuttgart.de/fovus/ and www.networks-for-mobility.net

Physicists have developed a new technique that uses electrical voltages to control the electron spin on a chip. The newly-developed method provides protection from spin decay, meaning that the contained information can be maintained and transmitted over comparatively large distances, as has been demonstrated by a team from the University of Basel’s Department of Physics and the Swiss Nanoscience Institute. The results have been published in Physical Review X.
For several years, researchers have been trying to use the spin of an electron to store and transmit information. The spin of each electron is always coupled...
What is the mass of a proton? Scientists from Germany and Japan successfully did an important step towards the most exact knowledge of this fundamental constant. By means of precision measurements on a single proton, they could improve the precision by a factor of three and also correct the existing value.
To determine the mass of a single proton still more accurate – a group of physicists led by Klaus Blaum and Sven Sturm of the Max Planck Institute for Nuclear...
