Open call to the Second INFOBIOMED Training Challenge

08.03.2006


From 1st to 24th of March, 2006, the application forms to participate in the second INFOBIOMED Training Challenge will be opened. This is an innovative training experience organized by the Network of Excellence INFOBIOMED.



This training meeting, that will take place in Viladrau (Barcelona, Spain) from the 29th May to the 2nd of June 2006, will gather 2 groups of 5 students with different backgrounds (bioinformatics, medical informatics, biology, medicine, chemistry, etc.) who will be working together in a case study that can benefit from an integrative approach.

In doing so, the objective is to promote the exchange of views and the dialogue between disciplines. This is key for the future development of biomedical informatics, in the context of a specific research problem, to help focus the effort towards a tangible target.


Pharmainformatics will be the broad theme of this edition. Each student is required to submit a motivated case study upon application and among the case studies proposed, the organizing committee will select one case study per group, according to the potential it offers for cross-discipline approaches.

Students will be actually lodged in a hotel in Viladrau, 80 km away from Barcelona, so that they can ’live’ for a week on a research-driven environment and they can develop their interdisciplinary potential as much as possible. The student expenses will be covered by the INFOBIOMED project. Students coming from European organisations are encouraged to apply. The application deadline is 24th of March 2006.

The application form can be found in http://www.infobiomed.net/paginas_en/training_challenge_information_frame.htm

Im Focus: A quantum walk of photons

Physicists from the University of Würzburg are capable of generating identical looking single light particles at the push of a button. Two new studies now demonstrate the potential this method holds.

The quantum computer has fuelled the imagination of scientists for decades: It is based on fundamentally different phenomena than a conventional computer....

Im Focus: Turmoil in sluggish electrons’ existence

An international team of physicists has monitored the scattering behaviour of electrons in a non-conducting material in real-time. Their insights could be beneficial for radiotherapy.

We can refer to electrons in non-conducting materials as ‘sluggish’. Typically, they remain fixed in a location, deep inside an atomic composite. It is hence...

Im Focus: Wafer-thin Magnetic Materials Developed for Future Quantum Technologies

Two-dimensional magnetic structures are regarded as a promising material for new types of data storage, since the magnetic properties of individual molecular building blocks can be investigated and modified. For the first time, researchers have now produced a wafer-thin ferrimagnet, in which molecules with different magnetic centers arrange themselves on a gold surface to form a checkerboard pattern. Scientists at the Swiss Nanoscience Institute at the University of Basel and the Paul Scherrer Institute published their findings in the journal Nature Communications.

Ferrimagnets are composed of two centers which are magnetized at different strengths and point in opposing directions. Two-dimensional, quasi-flat ferrimagnets...

Im Focus: Using graphene to create quantum bits

In the race to produce a quantum computer, a number of projects are seeking a way to create quantum bits -- or qubits -- that are stable, meaning they are not much affected by changes in their environment. This normally needs highly nonlinear non-dissipative elements capable of functioning at very low temperatures.

In pursuit of this goal, researchers at EPFL's Laboratory of Photonics and Quantum Measurements LPQM (STI/SB), have investigated a nonlinear graphene-based...
