Booth and panel discussion – The Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings at the AAAS 2017 Annual Meeting

13.02.2017

The Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings will participate in the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) 2017 Annual Meeting, which takes place from 16 – 20 February in Boston, MA. Every year, excellent young scientists congregate with Nobel Laureates in Lindau, Germany, for a week of scientific exchange.

During this year’s AAAS Meeting, entitled “Serving Society through Science Policy”, the organisers of the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings will exhibit at booth No. 916 in the Hynes Convention Center. Here, young scientists can find out how to participate in the Lindau Meetings.

Furthermore, representatives of universities and other science and research institutions may learn more about the global academic partner network, and journalists will find detailed information on covering the meeting.

The Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings will co-exhibit with the Heidelberg Laureate Forum Foundation, which hosts an annual meeting of laureates of the Abel Prize, the ACM A.M. Turing Award, the ACM Prize in Computing, the Fields Medal and the Nevanlinna Prize. Both organisations share the common aim of bringing together the most acclaimed scientists in their disciplines with the most talented young academics from all over the world.

Panel Discussion: 18 February at 03:00 pm

On Saturday, the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings and the Heidelberg Laureate Forum Foundation (HLFF) will host a panel discussion entitled “Science Policy and Science Diplomacy: Intergenerational Dialogue” in room 208 of the Hynes Convention Center. The participants will include Nobel Laureate Eric Maskin, ACM A.M. Turing Award Winner John Hopcroft, ERC President Jean-Pierre Bourguignon as well as Lindau alumnus Gunes Parlakgul and HLF alumna Kristina Mallory.

In 2017, two Lindau Meetings will take place:

67th Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting

The 67th Lindau Meeting will focus on chemistry and will take place from 25 – 30 June 2017. Thus far, 30 Nobel laureates as well as Ahmet Üzümcü, Director General of the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) and Joseph Sifakis, recipient of the 2007 ACM A.M. Turing Award, have confirmed their participation. The meeting will also host about 400 young scientists from around 80 countries.

6th Lindau Meeting on Economic Sciences

The Lindau Meeting on Economic Sciences will take place from 22 – 26 August 2017. For this meeting, 21 Nobel Laureates are expected to participate. In Lindau on Lake Constance, they will meet 400 young economists from all over the world.

Im Focus: Temperature-controlled fiber-optic light source with liquid core

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...

Im Focus: AchemAsia 2019 will take place in Shanghai

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...

Im Focus: First real-time test of Li-Fi utilization for the industrial Internet of Things

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.

Im Focus: Sharp images with flexible fibers

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...
