The Southeast Asia Urban Environmental Management Applications (SEA-UEMA) Project at the Asian Institute of Technology, in cooperation with the Chiang Mai Municipality and Mae Fah Luang University, will hold the International Conference on Sustainable Urban Environmental Practices on October 28-31, 2008.
The four-day event, which will be held in Chiang Mai, Thailand, will provide a dynamic platform for experts, policymakers, non-government and community organizations to exchange ideas and find solutions to the growing number of problems brought by the rapid and often haphazard expansion of urban areas. Specifically, conference delegates will focus on the following five themes:Urban Environmental Management towards Sustainability
Interested participants can send their abstracts by June 2, 2008 via email to email@example.com or by regular mail to the conference secretariat: SEA-UEMA Project, AIT, P.O Box 4 Klong Luang Pathumthani, 12120, Thailand. For more details, please visit http://www.sea-uema.ait.ac.th/2008/IC/announcement.html for schedules, technical guidelines and other related queries.
The SEA-UEMA Project is a joint initiative of the Asian Institute of Technology in Thailand and the Canadian International Development Agency. The project aims to improve urban environmental management policies and good practices in the region.
The conference is being organized to share an understanding of sustainable urban environmental theory and practices with various stakeholders, managers and practitioners of sustainable urban development in this globalizing era. The specific objectives are:
1. To exchange views and ideas on institutional collaboration, community participation and synergistic public private partnership among the urban stakeholders in the region;
2. To derive information on good practices for dissemination to all local and national policy makers and policy influencers towards the development of suitable UEM policies; and
3. To analyze and improve current policies and practices in urban development and understand their gender responsiveness in implementation.
The conference will be organized as panels of themes on sustainable urban environmental practices. Each panel would be based on a theme or one/more sub-themes and comprise 4-6 papers chaired by an expert on the subject.A. Urban Environmental Management towards Sustainability

A team led by Austrian experimental physicist Rainer Blatt has succeeded in characterizing the quantum entanglement of two spatially separated atoms by observing their light emission. This fundamental demonstration could lead to the development of highly sensitive optical gradiometers for the precise measurement of the gravitational field or the earth's magnetic field.
The age of quantum technology has long been heralded. Decades of research into the quantum world have led to the development of methods that make it possible...
Cardiovascular tissue engineering aims to treat heart disease with prostheses that grow and regenerate. Now, researchers from the University of Zurich, the Technical University Eindhoven and the Charité Berlin have successfully implanted regenerative heart valves, designed with the aid of computer simulations, into sheep for the first time.
Producing living tissue or organs based on human cells is one of the main research fields in regenerative medicine. Tissue engineering, which involves growing...
A team of scientists of the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) at the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science in Hamburg investigated optically-induced superconductivity in the alkali-doped fulleride K3C60under high external pressures. This study allowed, on one hand, to uniquely assess the nature of the transient state as a superconducting phase. In addition, it unveiled the possibility to induce superconductivity in K3C60 at temperatures far above the -170 degrees Celsius hypothesized previously, and rather all the way to room temperature. The paper by Cantaluppi et al has been published in Nature Physics.
Unlike ordinary metals, superconductors have the unique capability of transporting electrical currents without any loss. Nowadays, their technological...
