Solutions for tomorrow´s mobility - International Symposium „Networks for Mobility“

09.09.2008
Air pollution and chaos on city streets, congested highways, goods that have been moved across countless distances before they end up as a product on the consumer’s table....

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

Im Focus: Significantly more productivity in USP lasers

In recent years, lasers with ultrashort pulses (USP) down to the femtosecond range have become established on an industrial scale. They could advance some applications with the much-lauded “cold ablation” – if that meant they would then achieve more throughput. A new generation of process engineering that will address this issue in particular will be discussed at the “4th UKP Workshop – Ultrafast Laser Technology” in April 2017.

Even back in the 1990s, scientists were comparing materials processing with nanosecond, picosecond and femtosesecond pulses. The result was surprising:...

Im Focus: Shape matters when light meets atom

Mapping the interaction of a single atom with a single photon may inform design of quantum devices

Have you ever wondered how you see the world? Vision is about photons of light, which are packets of energy, interacting with the atoms or molecules in what...

Im Focus: Novel silicon etching technique crafts 3-D gradient refractive index micro-optics

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...

Im Focus: Quantum Particles Form Droplets

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...

Im Focus: MADMAX: Max Planck Institute for Physics takes up axion research

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,...
