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: AchemAsia 2019 will take place in Shanghai

Moving into its fourth decade, AchemAsia is setting out for new horizons: The International Expo and Innovation Forum for Sustainable Chemical Production will take place from 21-23 May 2019 in Shanghai, China. With an updated event profile, the eleventh edition focusses on topics that are especially relevant for the Chinese process industry, putting a strong emphasis on sustainability and innovation.

Founded in 1989 as a spin-off of ACHEMA to cater to the needs of China’s then developing industry, AchemAsia has since grown into a platform where the latest...

Im Focus: First real-time test of Li-Fi utilization for the industrial Internet of Things

The BMBF-funded OWICELLS project was successfully completed with a final presentation at the BMW plant in Munich. The presentation demonstrated a Li-Fi communication with a mobile robot, while the robot carried out usual production processes (welding, moving and testing parts) in a 5x5m² production cell. The robust, optical wireless transmission is based on spatial diversity; in other words, data is sent and received simultaneously by several LEDs and several photodiodes. The system can transmit data at more than 100 Mbit/s and five milliseconds latency.

Modern production technologies in the automobile industry must become more flexible in order to fulfil individual customer requirements.

Im Focus: Sharp images with flexible fibers

An international team of scientists has discovered a new way to transfer image information through multimodal fibers with almost no distortion - even if the fiber is bent. The results of the study, to which scientist from the Leibniz-Institute of Photonic Technology Jena (Leibniz IPHT) contributed, were published on 6thJune in the highly-cited journal Physical Review Letters.

Endoscopes allow doctors to see into a patient’s body like through a keyhole. Typically, the images are transmitted via a bundle of several hundreds of optical...

Im Focus: Water is not the same as water

Water molecules exist in two different forms with almost identical physical properties. For the first time, researchers have succeeded in separating the two forms to show that they can exhibit different chemical reactivities. These results were reported by researchers from the University of Basel and their colleagues in Hamburg in the scientific journal Nature Communications.

From a chemical perspective, water is a molecule in which a single oxygen atom is linked to two hydrogen atoms. It is less well known that water exists in two...
