All the major contractors are returning to the event, including Airbus, Boeing, Bombardier, Thalès, Safran, CNES, Alcatel Alenia Space, EADS Astrium, Finmecanica (Augusta, Aermacchi, Alenia Aeronautica Spazio and Piaggio Aero), Rolls Royce, and Pratt & Wittney. During the 2004 event, 9,000 meetings were held between 468 companies (including 150 contractors) from 25 countries, represented by 201 buyers and 318 sellers.
AEROMART has consolidated its international dimension with an increase for the 2006 event in the number of companies from Britain (more than 30 companies), Italy (25 companies), Germany, Spain, Belgium, Switzerland, the Netherlands, China (AVIC I & II delegation with over 20 companies), Israel, Hungary, the Czech Republic, Poland, Canada, Latvia, Lithuania and Turkey. New delegations are expected from India, Russia, Portugal, the USA (where AEROMART is now considered to be of economic interest to US companies) and South Korea.
At a time when many aerospace companies are looking to optimise their cost-effectiveness ratio, business conventions are enjoying increased success. The business convention formula has many advantages over an ordinary trade show: a business convention such as AEROMART offers private pre-scheduled meetings between buyers/contractors on the one hand, and suppliers/sub-contractors on the other. For a much lower all-inclusive price than that of booking a stand at a specialised trade fair, each participating company can select its contacts according to its needs and, a few days before the event, will receive a timetable of 15 to 20 targeted meetings over two days.
AEROMART is organised by Midi-Pyrenees Expansion (the regional development agency of the Midi-Pyrenees region of south-west France) and the Toulouse Chamber of Commerce and Industry, and is funded by the Midi-Pyrenees Regional Council, the Toulouse Chamber of Commerce and Industry, the Haute-Garonne Departmental Council and the Greater Toulouse Conurbation Community.
BCI, a leading European promoter of business conventions, is responsible for organising and marketing the event, which will be held on 29 and 30 November 2006 in Toulouse at the Parc des Expositions.

Researchers 'count cars' -- literally -- to find a better way to control heavy traffic

Our brains house extremely complex neuronal circuits, whose detailed structures are still largely unknown. This is especially true for the so-called cerebral cortex of mammals, where among other things vision, thoughts or spatial orientation are being computed. Here the rules by which nerve cells are connected to each other are only partly understood. A team of scientists around Moritz Helmstaedter at the Frankfiurt Max Planck Institute for Brain Research and Helene Schmidt (Humboldt University in Berlin) have now discovered a surprisingly precise nerve cell connectivity pattern in the part of the cerebral cortex that is responsible for orienting the individual animal or human in space.
The researchers report online in Nature (Schmidt et al., 2017. Axonal synapse sorting in medial entorhinal cortex, DOI: 10.1038/nature24005) that synapses in...

Using ultrafast flashes of laser and x-ray radiation, scientists at the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics (Garching, Germany) took snapshots of the briefest electron motion inside a solid material to date. The electron motion lasted only 750 billionths of the billionth of a second before it fainted, setting a new record of human capability to capture ultrafast processes inside solids!
When x-rays shine onto solid materials or large molecules, an electron is pushed away from its original place near the nucleus of the atom, leaving a hole...
For the first time, physicists have successfully imaged spiral magnetic ordering in a multiferroic material. These materials are considered highly promising candidates for future data storage media. The researchers were able to prove their findings using unique quantum sensors that were developed at Basel University and that can analyze electromagnetic fields on the nanometer scale. The results – obtained by scientists from the University of Basel’s Department of Physics, the Swiss Nanoscience Institute, the University of Montpellier and several laboratories from University Paris-Saclay – were recently published in the journal Nature.
Multiferroics are materials that simultaneously react to electric and magnetic fields. These two properties are rarely found together, and their combined...
