The Competence Center of Consumer Research North Rhine-Westphalia (CECORE NRW) is inviting researchers from multiple disciplines such as sociology, political science, economics, law, psychology, history, food sciences, environmental sciences, or engineering to register to the "ICCR 2014 | International Conference on Consumer Research: Challenges for Consumer Research and Consumer Policy in Europe" (29-30 September 2014 in Bonn, Germany). Media representatives and journalists are invited to attend the conference, please use the attached form for your accreditation.
We are pleased to announce that online registration is now open at https://lcem.lab-concepts.de/registration/iccr2014/en Please see http://www.vz-nrw.de/iccr for program information and updates. Follow us on Twitter (@kvf_nrw | #iccr2014).
We recommend you to register soon since the number of participants is limited. A fee is payable to attend the event, except after arrangement (paper presentation). Special rates are offered to students upon presentation of a student ID.
Register by 31 July 2014 at the latest to benefit from the early bird conference fee (normal fee - early bird: 100,00 Euro; student fee - early bird: 50,00 Euro). After 31 July 2014 the fees are: 200,00 Euro (normal fee), 100,00 Euro (student fee). In general, the registration fees can be paid by bank transfer or credit card.
ICCR 2014 brings together state-of-the-art research and supports seminal, multidisciplinary research perspectives for Consumer Research and Consumer Policy in Europe. Hosted by CECORE NRW, a think tank connecting researchers in Germany's biggest state and beyond, the conference features round table discussions with participants from politics, the media, and academic disciplines.
Svenja Schulze, Minister of Innovation, Science and Research and Johannes Remmel, Minister for Climate Protection, Environment, Agriculture, Nature Conservation and Consumer Protection of North Rhine-Westphalia as well as important officials from the European Union and other national governments will join the conference to foster networks of researchers, funding agencies, and government officials.
Crucial questions are tackled on the conference: How do consumers actually behave, what obstacles do they face in markets and technologies, are consumers' interests effectively represented? These are classic questions in consumer research. New research questions have been raised in recent times: What is consumers' responsibility for sustainable growth? How can vulnerable consumers be protected? Is there a revolution of consumer-rights?
More than ever, consumer research is in charge to unfold its interdisciplinary potential without sacrificing specific research foci and approaches from different disciplines.
The conference will be held at RCC Regional Museum | LVR-LandesMuseum Bonn, Colmantstr. 14-16, 53113 Bonn, Germany. For information on available accommodation nearby please see http://www.bonn-region.de/ICCR2014. Please note that the organiser does not assume any costs for your trip or your stay in Bonn.

Researchers at the University of New Hampshire have captured a difficult-to-view singular event involving "magnetic reconnection"--the process by which sparse particles and energy around Earth collide producing a quick but mighty explosion--in the Earth's magnetotail, the magnetic environment that trails behind the planet.
Magnetic reconnection has remained a bit of a mystery to scientists. They know it exists and have documented the effects that the energy explosions can...
Biochips have been developed at TU Wien (Vienna), on which tissue can be produced and examined. This allows supplying the tissue with different substances in a very controlled way.
Cultivating human cells in the Petri dish is not a big challenge today. Producing artificial tissue, however, permeated by fine blood vessels, is a much more...
Faster and secure data communication: This is the goal of a new joint project involving physicists from the University of Würzburg. The German Federal Ministry of Education and Research funds the project with 14.8 million euro.
In our digital world data security and secure communication are becoming more and more important. Quantum communication is a promising approach to achieve...
On Saturday, 10 November 2018, the research icebreaker Polarstern will leave its homeport of Bremerhaven, bound for Cape Town, South Africa.
When choosing materials to make something, trade-offs need to be made between a host of properties, such as thickness, stiffness and weight. Depending on the application in question, finding just the right balance is the difference between success and failure
Now, a team of Penn Engineers has demonstrated a new material they call "nanocardboard," an ultrathin equivalent of corrugated paper cardboard. A square...
