1st European Conference on "Production Technologies in Shipbuilding"

27.03.2006


... organized jointly with the 10th Shipbuilding Day of Mecklenburg - Western Pomerania



Innovative ship designs and optimized production techniques are key factors for the success of European shipbuilders in the market for complex one-of-a-kind ships. German and European shipyards benefited significantly from the worldwide increase in orders, resulting in order books well filled for the coming years.

Maintaining and improving this market position requires developing strategies to improve safe and environmentally friendly ships with decreased life cycle cost. Improvements in manufacturing processes will increase productivity and quality. Research, development and innovation are gaining importance to improve competitiveness in a global market.


The North of Germany, in particular the Federal State of Mecklenburg - Western Pomerania stretching along the Baltic Sea Coast is an important focal point of the European maritime industry. Modern shipyards, leading equipment suppliers and a well developed infrastructure of research centres and universities are working together to improve innovation with a strong focus on production technologies.

A sequence of local and European conferences and workshops have been organized in this region during the last couple of years, such as the nine Shipbuilding Days in Mecklenburg - Western Pomerania, bringing together scientists from universities and research centres with experts from shipyards and suppliers or the Conferences on Production Technologies, organized in Wismar with the participation of leading German and European experts.

The organizers of those two events, the Center of Maritime Technologies (CMT), the German Society of Naval Architects (STG), the Department of Mechanical Engineering and Marine Technologies of the University of Rostock, IMAWIS GmbH and the Association of German Engineers (VDI) have decided to join forces to organize an annual Conference on Ship Production and related technologies aiming to become one of the leading events on this topic in Europe.

The First European Conference on "Production Technologies in Shipbuilding" will be organized jointly with the 10th Shipbuilding Day of Mecklenburg - Western Pomerania on October 26th and 27th, 2006 at the Marina Residence "Hohe Düne" in Rostock-Warnemünde. The focus of this first conference will be on innovative material and structures for ships. Presentations from leading European experts will inform about new design solutions, manufacturing and joining processes and applications.

The conference will be a unique opportunity to present research results, to learn about latest developments and applications and to meet experts from Germany and Europe. The conference will be accompanied by smaller workshops, like the ENCOMAR Brokerage Event on Production Technologies, where participants from the new EU member and associated states will present their research capabilities and needs. This workshop will be used to initiate and prepare new research proposals for the 7th Framework Programme of Research and Development of the European Union. Moreover, participants to the conference will have the opportunity to visit shipyards and research centres in the region.

An accompanying exhibition opens the opportunity to present products and services related to the topic of the conference to a European audience.

The conference programme and the registration form will be issued approximately ten weeks before the conference. For further information and if you are interested in giving a presentation at the conference please refer to the website www.schiffbautag.de or contact the organizers.

Im Focus: Interfacial Superconductivity: Magnetic and superconducting order revealed simultaneously

Researchers from the University of Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Aarhus in Denmark, have synthesized a new superconducting material by growing a few layers of an antiferromagnetic transition-metal chalcogenide on a bismuth-based topological insulator, both being non-superconducting materials.

While superconductivity and magnetism are generally believed to be mutually exclusive, surprisingly, in this new material, superconducting correlations...

Im Focus: Studying fundamental particles in materials

Laser-driving of semimetals allows creating novel quasiparticle states within condensed matter systems and switching between different states on ultrafast time scales

Studying properties of fundamental particles in condensed matter systems is a promising approach to quantum field theory. Quasiparticles offer the opportunity...

Im Focus: Designing Architecture with Solar Building Envelopes

Among the general public, solar thermal energy is currently associated with dark blue, rectangular collectors on building roofs. Technologies are needed for aesthetically high quality architecture which offer the architect more room for manoeuvre when it comes to low- and plus-energy buildings. With the “ArKol” project, researchers at Fraunhofer ISE together with partners are currently developing two façade collectors for solar thermal energy generation, which permit a high degree of design flexibility: a strip collector for opaque façade sections and a solar thermal blind for transparent sections. The current state of the two developments will be presented at the BAU 2017 trade fair.

As part of the “ArKol – development of architecturally highly integrated façade collectors with heat pipes” project, Fraunhofer ISE together with its partners...

Im Focus: How to inflate a hardened concrete shell with a weight of 80 t

At TU Wien, an alternative for resource intensive formwork for the construction of concrete domes was developed. It is now used in a test dome for the Austrian Federal Railways Infrastructure (ÖBB Infrastruktur).

Concrete shells are efficient structures, but not very resource efficient. The formwork for the construction of concrete domes alone requires a high amount of...

Im Focus: Bacterial Pac Man molecule snaps at sugar

Many pathogens use certain sugar compounds from their host to help conceal themselves against the immune system. Scientists at the University of Bonn have now, in cooperation with researchers at the University of York in the United Kingdom, analyzed the dynamics of a bacterial molecule that is involved in this process. They demonstrate that the protein grabs onto the sugar molecule with a Pac Man-like chewing motion and holds it until it can be used. Their results could help design therapeutics that could make the protein poorer at grabbing and holding and hence compromise the pathogen in the host. The study has now been published in “Biophysical Journal”.

The cells of the mouth, nose and intestinal mucosa produce large quantities of a chemical called sialic acid. Many bacteria possess a special transport system...
