Most salient outcomes of those projects dedicated to progress and advances of the MBR technology for municipal wastewater treatment will be presented in a two-day workshop endorsed by the International Water Association. 31 March - 1 April 2009, Berlin, Germany
1st announcement and call for posters
Results of fundamental and applied research as well as technological breakthroughs achieved by the project partners in the field of the MBR technology will be unveiled in about 40 oral presentations and 50 posters.
A dedicated poster session will be included in the workshop program. Any international team or company active in the MBR field is welcome to present a poster. A prize of 1,000 € will be awarded to the best student poster presented at the workshop by a jury of international experts. Extended abstracts for poster presentation can be submitted by 30 September 2008 to the workshop organisers.
The final MBR-Network workshop will take place on 31 March - 1 April 2009 in Berlin, Germany, and will be hosted by the international conference and exhibition on water and wastewater treatment Wasser Berlin 2009 (www.wasser-berlin.com).Contact:

For the first time, a team of researchers at the Max-Planck Institute (MPI) for Polymer Research in Mainz, Germany, has succeeded in making an integrated circuit (IC) from just a monolayer of a semiconducting polymer via a bottom-up, self-assembly approach.
In the self-assembly process, the semiconducting polymer arranges itself into an ordered monolayer in a transistor. The transistors are binary switches used...
Breakthrough provides a new concept of the design of molecular motors, sensors and electricity generators at nanoscale

For photographers and scientists, lenses are lifesavers. They reflect and refract light, making possible the imaging systems that drive discovery through the microscope and preserve history through cameras.
But today's glass-based lenses are bulky and resist miniaturization. Next-generation technologies, such as ultrathin cameras or tiny microscopes, require...
Scientists from the University of Zurich have succeeded for the first time in tracking individual stem cells and their neuronal progeny over months within the intact adult brain. This study sheds light on how new neurons are produced throughout life.
The generation of new nerve cells was once thought to taper off at the end of embryonic development. However, recent research has shown that the adult brain...
Theoretical physicists propose to use negative interference to control heat flow in quantum devices. Study published in Physical Review Letters
Quantum computer parts are sensitive and need to be cooled to very low temperatures. Their tiny size makes them particularly susceptible to a temperature...
