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

MPQ scientists achieve long storage times for photonic quantum bits which break the lower bound for direct teleportation in a global quantum network.
Concerning the development of quantum memories for the realization of global quantum networks, scientists of the Quantum Dynamics Division led by Professor...

Tiny pores at a cell's entryway act as miniature bouncers, letting in some electrically charged atoms--ions--but blocking others. Operating as exquisitely sensitive filters, these "ion channels" play a critical role in biological functions such as muscle contraction and the firing of brain cells.
To rapidly transport the right ions through the cell membrane, the tiny channels rely on a complex interplay between the ions and surrounding molecules,...
The miniaturization of the current technology of storage media is hindered by fundamental limits of quantum mechanics. A new approach consists in using so-called spin-crossover molecules as the smallest possible storage unit. Similar to normal hard drives, these special molecules can save information via their magnetic state. A research team from Kiel University has now managed to successfully place a new class of spin-crossover molecules onto a surface and to improve the molecule’s storage capacity. The storage density of conventional hard drives could therefore theoretically be increased by more than one hundred fold. The study has been published in the scientific journal Nano Letters.
Over the past few years, the building blocks of storage media have gotten ever smaller. But further miniaturization of the current technology is hindered by...
