How are Europe’s landscapes influenced by the changing energy sector?

19.01.2015

An international conference to be held in Dresden in September 2015 will address the repercussions of energy generation on Europe’s landscapes. Suggested topics for presentation should be submitted by 28 February.

Europe’s landscapes are being transformed by the growth in renewable energies and the ongoing exploitation of fossil fuels such as lignite and shale gas. The international conference “Energy Landscapes:

Perception, Planning, Participation and Power” organised by the Landscape Research Group will focus on the perception of these developments as well as on ways to influence them.

The conference will be held in Dresden from 16 to 18 September 2015.

The call for papers has been published on the conference website (http://lrg2015.ioer.info), where suggested topics for English-language presentations can be submitted until 28 February.

Early-stage researchers are also encouraged to contribute.

The conference is organised by the Leibniz Institute of Ecological Urban and Regional Development in cooperation with the Technische Universität Dresden and three other partners.

The target audience are students in this field as well as working scientists and practitioners. Keynote addresses will be held by prominent researchers in the field of energy and landscapes such as Maarten Wolsink from the University of Amsterdam/the Netherlands, Patrick Devine-Wright from the University of Exeter/UK as well as Don Mitchell from Syracuse University/USA.

Im Focus: UNH scientists help provide first-ever views of elusive energy explosion

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...

Im Focus: A Chip with Blood Vessels

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...

Im Focus: A Leap Into Quantum Technology

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...

What does it look like below the ice shelf of the calved massive iceberg A68?

On Saturday, 10 November 2018, the research icebreaker Polarstern will leave its homeport of Bremerhaven, bound for Cape Town, South Africa.

Im Focus: Penn engineers develop ultrathin, ultralight 'nanocardboard'

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...
