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: Why we need erasable MRI scans

New technology could allow an MRI contrast agent to 'blink off,' helping doctors diagnose disease

Magnetic resonance imaging, or MRI, is a widely used medical tool for taking pictures of the insides of our body. One way to make MRI scans easier to read is...

Im Focus: BAM@Hannover Messe: innovative 3D printing method for space flight

At the Hannover Messe 2018, the Bundesanstalt für Materialforschung und-prüfung (BAM) will show how, in the future, astronauts could produce their own tools or spare parts in zero gravity using 3D printing. This will reduce, weight and transport costs for space missions. Visitors can experience the innovative additive manufacturing process live at the fair.

Powder-based additive manufacturing in zero gravity is the name of the project in which a component is produced by applying metallic powder layers and then...

Im Focus: Molecules Brilliantly Illuminated

Physicists at the Laboratory for Attosecond Physics, which is jointly run by Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität and the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics, have developed a high-power laser system that generates ultrashort pulses of light covering a large share of the mid-infrared spectrum. The researchers envisage a wide range of applications for the technology – in the early diagnosis of cancer, for instance.

Molecules are the building blocks of life. Like all other organisms, we are made of them. They control our biorhythm, and they can also reflect our state of...

Im Focus: Spider silk key to new bone-fixing composite

University of Connecticut researchers have created a biodegradable composite made of silk fibers that can be used to repair broken load-bearing bones without the complications sometimes presented by other materials.

Repairing major load-bearing bones such as those in the leg can be a long and uncomfortable process.

Im Focus: Writing and deleting magnets with lasers

Study published in the journal ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces is the outcome of an international effort that included teams from Dresden and Berlin in Germany, and the US.

Scientists at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) together with colleagues from the Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin (HZB) and the University of Virginia...
