Euroscience Open Forum 2008 Invites Bids To Showcase World Class Science

20.03.2007
Proposals to present leading scientific and technology issues and dynamic public outreach activities are invited by the Euroscience Open Forum (ESOF) for its third prestigious event to be hosted by Barcelona on 18 to 22 July 2008. Around 5,000 participants and many more members of the public are expected to attend.

Presentations and debates on the leading scientific questions of the day, from research into stem cells to the challenge of climate change, are planned for the ESOF2008 Scientific Programme. ‘We will be looking for ideas from across the science spectrum that bring together different disciplines and highlight cutting - edge issues and research in Europe and the world’, explains Sir Colin Berry, Chairman of the Programme Committee. ‘Ideas on innovative session formats and communication styles, and proposals that inspire genuine debate will also be especially welcome.’

The Call for Proposals to submit ideas for participation in the Science Programme is open to researchers from all disciplines, public and private institutions, communicators, policy makers, and businesses. The ten ‘Themes’ are:

- The human mind and behaviour
- The very big and the very small
- Maintaining and open society through science
- Engineering the body
- What should we eat and what we should look like?
- Enhancing energy security; fighting global warming
- Science policy
- Science and art
- Demography in an ageing Europe
- Screening: burdens and benefits
The ESOF2008 Outreach Activities Programme is also open for proposals that will engage the imagination of citizens through shows, displays and presentations that bring science to life in the fields of culture, sports and leisure. A Science and Society Programme is planned to stimulate debate on how science, technology and the humanities impact on society and the economy. Proposals that bring together diverse members of Europe’s science community are particularly encouraged.

To answer the Calls, full details of the conditions and how to apply are on the ESOF website (www.esof2008.org). The closing date for all proposals is 30 June, 2007.

Im Focus: Artificial agent designs quantum experiments

On the way to an intelligent laboratory, physicists from Innsbruck and Vienna present an artificial agent that autonomously designs quantum experiments. In initial experiments, the system has independently (re)discovered experimental techniques that are nowadays standard in modern quantum optical laboratories. This shows how machines could play a more creative role in research in the future.

We carry smartphones in our pockets, the streets are dotted with semi-autonomous cars, but in the research laboratory experiments are still being designed by...

Im Focus: Scientists decipher key principle behind reaction of metalloenzymes

So-called pre-distorted states accelerate photochemical reactions too

What enables electrons to be transferred swiftly, for example during photosynthesis? An interdisciplinary team of researchers has worked out the details of how...

Im Focus: The first precise measurement of a single molecule's effective charge

For the first time, scientists have precisely measured the effective electrical charge of a single molecule in solution. This fundamental insight of an SNSF Professor could also pave the way for future medical diagnostics.

Electrical charge is one of the key properties that allows molecules to interact. Life itself depends on this phenomenon: many biological processes involve...

Im Focus: Paradigm shift in Paris: Encouraging an holistic view of laser machining

At the JEC World Composite Show in Paris in March 2018, the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT will be focusing on the latest trends and innovations in laser machining of composites. Among other things, researchers at the booth shared with the Aachen Center for Integrative Lightweight Production (AZL) will demonstrate how lasers can be used for joining, structuring, cutting and drilling composite materials.

No other industry has attracted as much public attention to composite materials as the automotive industry, which along with the aerospace industry is a driver...

Im Focus: Room-temperature multiferroic thin films and their properties

Scientists at Tokyo Institute of Technology (Tokyo Tech) and Tohoku University have developed high-quality GFO epitaxial films and systematically investigated their ferroelectric and ferromagnetic properties. They also demonstrated the room-temperature magnetocapacitance effects of these GFO thin films.

Multiferroic materials show magnetically driven ferroelectricity. They are attracting increasing attention because of their fascinating properties such as...
