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: Making lightweight construction suitable for series production

More and more automobile companies are focusing on body parts made of carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP). However, manufacturing and repair costs must be further reduced in order to make CFRP more economical in use. Together with the Volkswagen AG and five other partners in the project HolQueSt 3D, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) has developed laser processes for the automatic trimming, drilling and repair of three-dimensional components.

Automated manufacturing processes are the basis for ultimately establishing the series production of CFRP components. In the project HolQueSt 3D, the LZH has...

Im Focus: Wonder material? Novel nanotube structure strengthens thin films for flexible electronics

Reflecting the structure of composites found in nature and the ancient world, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have synthesized thin carbon nanotube (CNT) textiles that exhibit both high electrical conductivity and a level of toughness that is about fifty times higher than copper films, currently used in electronics.

"The structural robustness of thin metal films has significant importance for the reliable operation of smart skin and flexible electronics including...

Im Focus: Deep inside Galaxy M87

The nearby, giant radio galaxy M87 hosts a supermassive black hole (BH) and is well-known for its bright jet dominating the spectrum over ten orders of magnitude in frequency. Due to its proximity, jet prominence, and the large black hole mass, M87 is the best laboratory for investigating the formation, acceleration, and collimation of relativistic jets. A research team led by Silke Britzen from the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy in Bonn, Germany, has found strong indication for turbulent processes connecting the accretion disk and the jet of that galaxy providing insights into the longstanding problem of the origin of astrophysical jets.

Supermassive black holes form some of the most enigmatic phenomena in astrophysics. Their enormous energy output is supposed to be generated by the...

Im Focus: A Quantum Low Pass for Photons

Physicists in Garching observe novel quantum effect that limits the number of emitted photons.

The probability to find a certain number of photons inside a laser pulse usually corresponds to a classical distribution of independent events, the so-called...

Im Focus: Microprocessors based on a layer of just three atoms

Microprocessors based on atomically thin materials hold the promise of the evolution of traditional processors as well as new applications in the field of flexible electronics. Now, a TU Wien research team led by Thomas Müller has made a breakthrough in this field as part of an ongoing research project.

Two-dimensional materials, or 2D materials for short, are extremely versatile, although – or often more precisely because – they are made up of just one or a...
