Trade and growth in the BRIC states – call for papers for the IAMO Forum 2011

04.10.2010
„Will the ‚BRICs Decade’ continue? – Prospects for trade and growth” is the conference topic of the IAMO Forum 2011. The conference hosted by the Leibniz Institute of Agricultural Development in Central and Eastern Europe (IAMO), the Kiel Institute for the World Economy (IfW) and the GIGA German Institute of Global and Area Studies is to take place from 23-24 June 2011 in Halle (Saale). Closing date for paper submissions is 28 January 2011.

The conference will focus on trade and growth in the world’s leading emerging economies Brazil, Russia, India, and China (BRICs) and the repercussions on the world economy. The ongoing globalization process makes questions of trade and growth vitally important for all actors in the world economy.

The IAMO Forum 2011 aims to take stock of current research on the consequences of the rise of new economic powers for the world economy. Besides macroeconomic questions the Forum 2011 will focus on agriculture, global food security, and the stabilisation of highly erratic international commodity markets.

While global growth increasingly depends on the BRICs’ performance, it is unclear how successful the BRICs will be in accelerating technological change and stabilizing the world economy. In addition, the ongoing race for primary products and food resources, the increasing volatility of food and primary commodity markets as well as the endangering of our natural resources call for intensified research on the interactions between growth and trade in emerging economies.

Even though the economic success of all BRICs is characterized by an export-led strategy, large differences in their paths of development exist. For example, their degree of openness and extent of state interventions differ significantly. This is especially true for agriculture. Thus, the comprehensive comparative analysis is necessary to understand the noticeable differences in the sources of growth among the BRICs. In this context the upcoming IAMO Forum 2011 will also examine the BRICs’ agricultural growth potential and their influence on agricultural markets and trade.

Participants who would like to present papers should submit a full paper, in English, via e-mail to forum2011@iamo.de. In order to be considered papers must not exceed 7.000 words. A selection of the best papers will be published in a high ranking journal. Detailed information is available on the conference homepage http://forum2011.iamo.de.

Im Focus: Wafer-thin Magnetic Materials Developed for Future Quantum Technologies

Two-dimensional magnetic structures are regarded as a promising material for new types of data storage, since the magnetic properties of individual molecular building blocks can be investigated and modified. For the first time, researchers have now produced a wafer-thin ferrimagnet, in which molecules with different magnetic centers arrange themselves on a gold surface to form a checkerboard pattern. Scientists at the Swiss Nanoscience Institute at the University of Basel and the Paul Scherrer Institute published their findings in the journal Nature Communications.

Ferrimagnets are composed of two centers which are magnetized at different strengths and point in opposing directions. Two-dimensional, quasi-flat ferrimagnets...

Im Focus: Using graphene to create quantum bits

In the race to produce a quantum computer, a number of projects are seeking a way to create quantum bits -- or qubits -- that are stable, meaning they are not much affected by changes in their environment. This normally needs highly nonlinear non-dissipative elements capable of functioning at very low temperatures.

In pursuit of this goal, researchers at EPFL's Laboratory of Photonics and Quantum Measurements LPQM (STI/SB), have investigated a nonlinear graphene-based...

Im Focus: Hydrogen Bonds Directly Detected for the First Time

For the first time, scientists have succeeded in studying the strength of hydrogen bonds in a single molecule using an atomic force microscope. Researchers from the University of Basel’s Swiss Nanoscience Institute network have reported the results in the journal Science Advances.

Hydrogen is the most common element in the universe and is an integral part of almost all organic compounds. Molecules and sections of macromolecules are...
