Conference on Managing Urban Land & Innovative Solutions for the Revitalisation of Degraded Areas

21.06.2012
Special session about Circular Flow Land Use Management „CircUse“ scheduled on the 2nd of October at the CABERNET 2012 Conference in Ustron, Poland

The “3rd International Conference on Managing Urban Land” (CABERNET 2012 Conference) in conjunction with the “6th International Conference on Innovative Solutions for Revitalisation of Degraded Areas” will be held on the 2nd - 4th of October 2012 in Ustron (Poland).

The conference is organized by the Institute for Ecology of Industrial Areas (IETU), the Research and Supervisory Centre of Underground Mining Co. Ltd (CBiDGP), the CABERNET Europe’s Sustainable Brownfield Regeneration Network and CircUse project partners. The main conference theme is “Innovative Solutions towards Circular Land Use” and combines aspects of urban land management and degraded land revitalisation. During the conference, a special session will be carried out for the CircUse project on the 2nd of October, 2012. This session will introduce the CircUse project and concept and then present on the innovative approaches of the CircUse project to implement circular land use such as the data management tool and new management structures. A software training session for the land management data tool will also be offered to attendees to take part in.

In addition to the special CircUse session, academic scholars and experts from the field will present and discuss the results of other international research projects, recent political developments, and best practice experiences.

Innovative methods and instruments towards implementing land recycling for both the public and private sectors will be presented. The conference will also focus upon future EU-cohesion policies and the European Union’s growth strategy “Europe 2020”. The CABERNET 2012 programme will cover the topics of:

• Integrated urban land management and European funding programmes
• Innovative technologies for land revitalisation
• Economic, social and environmental tools for Circular Flow Land Use Management
• Land demand for renewable energy production on brownfields
• Best practice case studies
• Training, education and professionalism

Attendees to the CABERNET 2012 Conference can expect expertly analysed information about strengthening inner city agglomerations, opportunities to restrict the consumption of new land, how to support the creation of sustainable transport systems, the preservation of industrial cultural heritage sites, as well as renaturalisation and restoration of ecological functions to brownfield sites. Central to the conference theme is the transfer of knowledge to achieve a more sustainable urban land management through identifying the opportunities brownfields in urban areas offer.

CABERNET 2012 is already accepting papers for the conference. The deadline for the submission of abstracts is the 6th of July, 2012. All entries must not exceed 2,500 characters and conform to the requirements set forth by the “Call for Abstracts” found on the CircUse webpage (www.circuse.eu). Please send your abstracts to a.pilch@ietu.katowice.pl.

The conference program, information about the conference venue, as well as a template for abstracts can all be found at: www.circuse.eu.

The project is implemented through the CENTRAL EUROPE Programme co-financed by the ERDF. The pro-gramme is funded by the Central European Program of European Grouping of Territorial Cooperation.

Im Focus: The taming of the light screw

DESY and MPSD scientists create high-order harmonics from solids with controlled polarization states, taking advantage of both crystal symmetry and attosecond electronic dynamics. The newly demonstrated technique might find intriguing applications in petahertz electronics and for spectroscopic studies of novel quantum materials.

The nonlinear process of high-order harmonic generation (HHG) in gases is one of the cornerstones of attosecond science (an attosecond is a billionth of a...

Im Focus: Magnetic micro-boats

Nano- and microtechnology are promising candidates not only for medical applications such as drug delivery but also for the creation of little robots or flexible integrated sensors. Scientists from the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research (MPI-P) have created magnetic microparticles, with a newly developed method, that could pave the way for building micro-motors or guiding drugs in the human body to a target, like a tumor. The preparation of such structures as well as their remote-control can be regulated using magnetic fields and therefore can find application in an array of domains.

The magnetic properties of a material control how this material responds to the presence of a magnetic field. Iron oxide is the main component of rust but also...

Im Focus: Self-healing coating made of corn starch makes small scratches disappear through heat

Due to the special arrangement of its molecules, a new coating made of corn starch is able to repair small scratches by itself through heat: The cross-linking via ring-shaped molecules makes the material mobile, so that it compensates for the scratches and these disappear again.

Superficial micro-scratches on the car body or on other high-gloss surfaces are harmless, but annoying. Especially in the luxury segment such surfaces are...

Im Focus: Stellar cartography

The Potsdam Echelle Polarimetric and Spectroscopic Instrument (PEPSI) at the Large Binocular Telescope (LBT) in Arizona released its first image of the surface magnetic field of another star. In a paper in the European journal Astronomy & Astrophysics, the PEPSI team presents a Zeeman- Doppler-Image of the surface of the magnetically active star II Pegasi.

A special technique allows astronomers to resolve the surfaces of faraway stars. Those are otherwise only seen as point sources, even in the largest telescopes...
