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: 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...
