The Dresden Nexus Conference (DNC2020) will take place from 3 to 5 June. In view of the current Coronavirus pandemic, the conference will be offered entirely virtually and free of charge. The international conference will focus on the question of how a circular economy can contribute to a sustainable society and what role the Nexus Approach, i.e. the integrated management of natural resources, can play in this. Jointly organised by the United Nations University (UNU-FLORES), the Technische Universität Dresden (TU Dresden), and the Leibniz Institute of Ecological Urban and Regional Development (IOER), registration for the virtual DNC2020 is now open.
Under the theme “Circular Economy in a Sustainable Society”, the third Dresden Nexus Conference (DNC2020) in June will be devoted to important issues of...19.05.2020 | Read more
The 30th Aachen Machine Tool Colloquium will take place on June 10 and 11, 2021, at the Eurogress Aachen. Due to the developments concerning the spread of the corona virus (SARS-CoV-2), the AWK has been postponed from 2020 to 2021 with regard to the safety and health of participants, customers and employees and will therefore not take place in the usual three-year cycle.
With the upcoming year and the effects caused by the corona virus, which are already affecting many manufacturing companies and will have a long-term impact on...07.04.2020 | Read more
Due to the corona crisis, the International Coral Reef Symposium (ICRS) will not be held this summer. The new conference dates are July 18 to 23, 2021. The University of Bremen explained that the dynamic spreading of the virus, the protection of all participants, and the travel restrictions were the factors that led to this decision. The accompanying public events, which were planned to take place in the town, are to also take place one year later, if possible. The silver lining of this situation could be that the conference will now be part of the university’s 50th birthday celebrations in 2021.
“This decision was a difficult one to make for our partners and our team but it was necessary,” says Professor Christian Wild from the University of Bremen....06.04.2020 | Read more
Owing to the progressing coronavirus pandemic, the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT has decided to cancel the International Laser Technology Congress AKL in 2020. The safety and health of our attendees, partners and employees has top priority for us. The next AKL will take place from May 4 to 6, 2022, thus maintaining its regular biennial rhythm.
However, so that interested parties do not have to wait another two years for the live demonstrations in Europe's largest laser system park, which are firmly...02.04.2020 | Read more
The "4th Hybrid Materials and Structures 2020", originally announced for the Karlsruhe site, will take place despite the ongoing coronavirus situation - over the internet. The exciting and interesting programme, which features top-class plenary lectures from the industry, will remain unaffected by this.
The following plenary speakers have signed up for the "4th Hybrid Materials and Structures 2020":26.03.2020 | Read more
On March 25, the “International Conference on Learning Analytics & Knowledge 2020” (LAK20) will be hold as a complete online format. The conference, joined by attendees across the world, is organised from Frankfurt am Main. Responding rapidly to the spread of the Coronavirus, the team of organisers has rescheduled and completely switched to a virtual conference. The event is the worldwide most significant forum for this discipline in digital education. Learning Analytics reflects the measurement and analysis of data from technology-based learning processes that are, for instance, gained in online courses or software tutorials. Learning is thus meant to be supported and optimized.
“Especially at an international level, Learning Analytics has been shown to have a relevant impact on education“, says Professor Dr. Hendrik Drachsler from...23.03.2020 | Read more
In recent decades, micro-optical technologies have made enormous progress and have been able to advance into a wide range of application areas. The automotive sector in particular benefits from the efficient and compact optics, since the size of the components is usually very limited and the energy balance of vehicles must be continuously optimized. These and other applications for micro-optics will be discussed by international experts at the Microoptics Conference MOC2020 in Jena from September 24 to 26th, 2020.
Already in 2004, the city of Jena was chosen by the Japanese Society for Applied Physics as the venue for the International Microoptics Conference MOC (MOC'04).03.03.2020 | Read more

Solar cells based on perovskite compounds could soon make electricity generation from sunlight even more efficient and cheaper. The laboratory efficiency of these perovskite solar cells already exceeds that of the well-known silicon solar cells. An international team led by Stefan Weber from the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research (MPI-P) in Mainz has found microscopic structures in perovskite crystals that can guide the charge transport in the solar cell. Clever alignment of these "electron highways" could make perovskite solar cells even more powerful.
Solar cells convert sunlight into electricity. During this process, the electrons of the material inside the cell absorb the energy of the light....
Empa researchers have succeeded in applying aerogels to microelectronics: Aerogels based on cellulose nanofibers can effectively shield electromagnetic radiation over a wide frequency range – and they are unrivalled in terms of weight.
Electric motors and electronic devices generate electromagnetic fields that sometimes have to be shielded in order not to affect neighboring electronic...

With an X-ray experiment at the European Synchrotron ESRF in Grenoble (France), Empa researchers were able to demonstrate how well their real-time acoustic monitoring of laser weld seams works. With almost 90 percent reliability, they detected the formation of unwanted pores that impair the quality of weld seams. Thanks to a special evaluation method based on artificial intelligence (AI), the detection process is completed in just 70 milliseconds.
Laser welding is a process suitable for joining metals and thermoplastics. It has become particularly well established in highly automated production, for...
