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: Strathclyde-led research develops world's highest gain high-power laser amplifier

The world's highest gain high power laser amplifier - by many orders of magnitude - has been developed in research led at the University of Strathclyde.

The researchers demonstrated the feasibility of using plasma to amplify short laser pulses of picojoule-level energy up to 100 millijoules, which is a 'gain'...

Im Focus: Can the immune system be boosted against Staphylococcus aureus by delivery of messenger RNA?

Staphylococcus aureus is a feared pathogen (MRSA, multi-resistant S. aureus) due to frequent resistances against many antibiotics, especially in hospital infections. Researchers at the Paul-Ehrlich-Institut have identified immunological processes that prevent a successful immune response directed against the pathogenic agent. The delivery of bacterial proteins with RNA adjuvant or messenger RNA (mRNA) into immune cells allows the re-direction of the immune response towards an active defense against S. aureus. This could be of significant importance for the development of an effective vaccine. PLOS Pathogens has published these research results online on 25 May 2017.

Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus) is a bacterium that colonizes by far more than half of the skin and the mucosa of adults, usually without causing infections....

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...
