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: Breaking: the first light from two neutron stars merging

Seven new papers describe the first-ever detection of light from a gravitational wave source. The event, caused by two neutron stars colliding and merging together, was dubbed GW170817 because it sent ripples through space-time that reached Earth on 2017 August 17. Around the world, hundreds of excited astronomers mobilized quickly and were able to observe the event using numerous telescopes, providing a wealth of new data.

Previous detections of gravitational waves have all involved the merger of two black holes, a feat that won the 2017 Nobel Prize in Physics earlier this month....

Im Focus: Smart sensors for efficient processes

Material defects in end products can quickly result in failures in many areas of industry, and have a massive impact on the safe use of their products. This is why, in the field of quality assurance, intelligent, nondestructive sensor systems play a key role. They allow testing components and parts in a rapid and cost-efficient manner without destroying the actual product or changing its surface. Experts from the Fraunhofer IZFP in Saarbrücken will be presenting two exhibits at the Blechexpo in Stuttgart from 7–10 November 2017 that allow fast, reliable, and automated characterization of materials and detection of defects (Hall 5, Booth 5306).

When quality testing uses time-consuming destructive test methods, it can result in enormous costs due to damaging or destroying the products. And given that...
