Public communication of the Nobel Prize on 23 June in Sweden

16.06.2008
Swedish and international press are invited to report on and participate in the pre-conference to the 10th global conference on "Public Communication of Science and Technology" (PCST-10 Bridges to the future), which for the very first time is arranged in Scandinavia.

Participating Nobel Laureates in the pre-conference: Peter Agre (Nobel Prize in Chemistry 2003) och Frank Wilczek (Nobel Prize in Physics 2004). Also Dr. Angela Lindner, Head of communications for one of the Nobel Laureates in Physics 2007, Peter Grünberg, will take part.

The pre-conference at the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences (RSAS) is open for invited press and participants in the main PCST-10 conference (in Öresund 25-27 June), and will give a Swedish perspective to international science communication. The announcement of the Nobel Prize and the Sveriges Riksbank Prize in Memory of Alfred Nobel in early October each year is, arguably, the major news event originating from Sweden.

Consequently, the associated communication process provides an excellent case study and a good opportunity to discuss the "why's and how's" of contemporary science communication.

Venue: Beijersalen, RSAS, Lilla Frescativägen 4A, Stockholm, Sweden (ca. 5 km north of Stockholm C).

Time: Monday 23 June 2008, at 9.00 am-3.00 pm. Coffee and fruits are served from 8.30 am.

Lunch: Journalists who has registered at the LATEST Tuesday 18 June will be served free lunch. Please register to the Press Officer at the RSAS.

Organizers: RSAS and the Swedish Research Council in collaboration with Malmö University, Dansk Natur
videnskabsformidling, Lund University, Öresund University, Swedish Council for Working Life and Social Research (FAS), Formas, Vinnova, Copenhagen

Business School, Danish Agency for Science Technology and Innovation, The Kavli Prize and Stiftelsen Riksbankens Jubileumsfond.

Please register and apply for interviews to the Press Officer at the RSAS: Erik Huss, +46 8 673 95 44, +46 70 673 96 50, erik.huss@kva.se

PCST (Public Communication of Science and Technology) is a global network of communicators, journalists, scientists and other professionals interested in science communication. The network started in France in 1989 and promotes enhanced dialogue between groups engaged in research and communication through support of new ideas and methodology, organization of recurrent world conferences and electronic meeting places.

Im Focus: First evidence on the source of extragalactic particles

For the first time ever, scientists have determined the cosmic origin of highest-energy neutrinos. A research group led by IceCube scientist Elisa Resconi, spokesperson of the Collaborative Research Center SFB1258 at the Technical University of Munich (TUM), provides an important piece of evidence that the particles detected by the IceCube neutrino telescope at the South Pole originate from a galaxy four billion light-years away from Earth.

To rule out other origins with certainty, the team led by neutrino physicist Elisa Resconi from the Technical University of Munich and multi-wavelength...

Im Focus: Magnetic vortices: Two independent magnetic skyrmion phases discovered in a single material

For the first time a team of researchers have discovered two different phases of magnetic skyrmions in a single material. Physicists of the Technical Universities of Munich and Dresden and the University of Cologne can now better study and understand the properties of these magnetic structures, which are important for both basic research and applications.

Whirlpools are an everyday experience in a bath tub: When the water is drained a circular vortex is formed. Typically, such whirls are rather stable. Similar...

Im Focus: Breaking the bond: To take part or not?

Physicists working with Roland Wester at the University of Innsbruck have investigated if and how chemical reactions can be influenced by targeted vibrational excitation of the reactants. They were able to demonstrate that excitation with a laser beam does not affect the efficiency of a chemical exchange reaction and that the excited molecular group acts only as a spectator in the reaction.

A frequently used reaction in organic chemistry is nucleophilic substitution. It plays, for example, an important role in in the synthesis of new chemical...

Im Focus: New 2D Spectroscopy Methods

Optical spectroscopy allows investigating the energy structure and dynamic properties of complex quantum systems. Researchers from the University of Würzburg present two new approaches of coherent two-dimensional spectroscopy.

"Put an excitation into the system and observe how it evolves." According to physicist Professor Tobias Brixner, this is the credo of optical spectroscopy....

Im Focus: Chemical reactions in the light of ultrashort X-ray pulses from free-electron lasers

Ultra-short, high-intensity X-ray flashes open the door to the foundations of chemical reactions. Free-electron lasers generate these kinds of pulses, but there is a catch: the pulses vary in duration and energy. An international research team has now presented a solution: Using a ring of 16 detectors and a circularly polarized laser beam, they can determine both factors with attosecond accuracy.

Free-electron lasers (FELs) generate extremely short and intense X-ray flashes. Researchers can use these flashes to resolve structures with diameters on the...
