II. MEDIA PARTICIPATION
The 51st Annual Drosophila Research Conference is open to media representatives, including those from bona fide print, broadcast, radio, and online venues, and freelance writers on a verifiable assignment from an established news source.
In addition to completing the online registration form, freelancers must send the GSA Public Relations and Communications Office a confirmation of assignment letter from their editor on the news organization’s letterhead.Complimentary meeting registration will be available to members of the media who provide appropriate press credentials and identification.
o Exchanging, loaning or borrowing of the GSA press badge is strictly prohibited.• Camera crews filming in onsite meeting areas must make prior arrangements with the GSA Public Relations and Communications Office.
GSA does not issue media credentials to the following: any publication’s advertising, marketing, public relations or sales representatives; publishers, editors or reporters from exhibiting companies; “in-house” newsletters or promotional publications staff; public relations representatives of exhibitors or educational institutions; writers creating analyses or reports sold as a commodity to customers; financial analysts; medical education companies; or other individuals who are not actually reporting on the content of the 51st Annual Drosophila Research Conference. NOTE: Bloggers or reporters who are plenary or poster presenters must register for the meeting at http://www.drosophila-conf.org/2010/pages/register.shtml.

In a recent publication in the renowned journal Optica, scientists of Leibniz-Institute of Photonic Technology (Leibniz IPHT) in Jena showed that they can accurately control the optical properties of liquid-core fiber lasers and therefore their spectral band width by temperature and pressure tuning.
Already last year, the researchers provided experimental proof of a new dynamic of hybrid solitons– temporally and spectrally stationary light waves resulting...

Moving into its fourth decade, AchemAsia is setting out for new horizons: The International Expo and Innovation Forum for Sustainable Chemical Production will take place from 21-23 May 2019 in Shanghai, China. With an updated event profile, the eleventh edition focusses on topics that are especially relevant for the Chinese process industry, putting a strong emphasis on sustainability and innovation.
Founded in 1989 as a spin-off of ACHEMA to cater to the needs of China’s then developing industry, AchemAsia has since grown into a platform where the latest...
The BMBF-funded OWICELLS project was successfully completed with a final presentation at the BMW plant in Munich. The presentation demonstrated a Li-Fi communication with a mobile robot, while the robot carried out usual production processes (welding, moving and testing parts) in a 5x5m² production cell. The robust, optical wireless transmission is based on spatial diversity; in other words, data is sent and received simultaneously by several LEDs and several photodiodes. The system can transmit data at more than 100 Mbit/s and five milliseconds latency.
Modern production technologies in the automobile industry must become more flexible in order to fulfil individual customer requirements.
An international team of scientists has discovered a new way to transfer image information through multimodal fibers with almost no distortion - even if the fiber is bent. The results of the study, to which scientist from the Leibniz-Institute of Photonic Technology Jena (Leibniz IPHT) contributed, were published on 6thJune in the highly-cited journal Physical Review Letters.
Endoscopes allow doctors to see into a patient’s body like through a keyhole. Typically, the images are transmitted via a bundle of several hundreds of optical...
