13 -14 April 2012: World Negotiation Championship first time in Paris

27.03.2012
The Negotiation Challenge (TNC) reports record in the number of applications +++ 18 top-class Business and Law Schools fight for the world championship in negotiation

“Students need to learn to participate fully in 21st century societies by learning skills that may not be commonly taught in classrooms such as critical thinking, creativity, teamwork, problem solving and negotiation. These generic skills should be learned in schools and in institutions of higher education. Negotiation skills are based on these aforementioned competencies and are needed in many professional domains today.” (Prof. Dr. Barbara Ischinger, OECD Director for Education)

Prof. Dr. Ischinger highlights the importance of negotiation skills both in business and in society. The OECD Director for Education will deliver a speech during the opening ceremony on 13 April 2012 in Paris.

With more than 75 teams from top business and law schools from all over the world, the number of applicants more than doubled compared to last years. The 18 teams that have been selected are from such renowned business and law schools like Harvard University, London School of Business and Finance, UC Hastings College of the Law, ESSEC or ESCP Europe. Each team consists of three students and one coach. From 13 – 14 April, the teams compete against each other at such diverse venues as the International Chamber of Commerce, IESEG School of Management or Parisian Street Cafés. The two best teams of the first four rounds will be in the final round. This year is the first time where the French Business School IESEG School of Management co-organizes the event together with the German HHL - Graduate School of Management.

We would like to invite your editorial staff to the official opening ceremony and the first round of negotiation of the International World Championship in Negotiation.
This will take place on
Friday, 13 April 2012
at 09:00 am in Paris (place: IÉSEG School of Management
socle de la Grande-Arche 1, parvis de la Défense, 92044)

Kilian Lamprecht, member of the organization committee of TNC is willing to inform you concerning the background, goals and procedure of the event in advance or in Paris. Additionally, you have the chance to talk directly to students of the participating teams or to accompany us editorially throughout the competition. As a member of the jury and co-founder of TNC, Dr. Remigiusz Smolinski, Assistant Professor at IESEG School of Management will be open for an interview.

For planning reasons, we would like to ask you to confirm your attendance until 5 April 2012 to kilian.lamprecht@hhl.de concerning The Negotiation Challenge (TNC).

About the Negotiation Challenge (TNC)

The Negotiation Challenge (TNC) has been founded by PhD students of HHL and Harvard Law School during a joint project in 2007. At an early time, HHL has realized the importance of the subject negotiation. With TNC, HHL and IESEG are precursors in the European region in the field of negotiation.

Im Focus: New studies increase confidence in NASA's measure of Earth's temperature

A new assessment of NASA's record of global temperatures revealed that the agency's estimate of Earth's long-term temperature rise in recent decades is accurate to within less than a tenth of a degree Fahrenheit, providing confidence that past and future research is correctly capturing rising surface temperatures.

The most complete assessment ever of statistical uncertainty within the GISS Surface Temperature Analysis (GISTEMP) data product shows that the annual values...

Im Focus: The geometry of an electron determined for the first time

Physicists at the University of Basel are able to show for the first time how a single electron looks in an artificial atom. A newly developed method enables them to show the probability of an electron being present in a space. This allows improved control of electron spins, which could serve as the smallest information unit in a future quantum computer. The experiments were published in Physical Review Letters and the related theory in Physical Review B.

The spin of an electron is a promising candidate for use as the smallest information unit (qubit) of a quantum computer. Controlling and switching this spin or...

Im Focus: Self-repairing batteries

UTokyo engineers develop a way to create high-capacity long-life batteries

Engineers at the University of Tokyo continually pioneer new ways to improve battery technology. Professor Atsuo Yamada and his team recently developed a...

Im Focus: Quantum Cloud Computing with Self-Check

With a quantum coprocessor in the cloud, physicists from Innsbruck, Austria, open the door to the simulation of previously unsolvable problems in chemistry, materials research or high-energy physics. The research groups led by Rainer Blatt and Peter Zoller report in the journal Nature how they simulated particle physics phenomena on 20 quantum bits and how the quantum simulator self-verified the result for the first time.

Many scientists are currently working on investigating how quantum advantage can be exploited on hardware already available today. Three years ago, physicists...

Im Focus: Accelerating quantum technologies with materials processing at the atomic scale

'Quantum technologies' utilise the unique phenomena of quantum superposition and entanglement to encode and process information, with potentially profound benefits to a wide range of information technologies from communications to sensing and computing.

However a major challenge in developing these technologies is that the quantum phenomena are very fragile, and only a handful of physical systems have been...
