International Coral Reef Symposium in Bremen Postponed by a Year

06.04.2020

Due to the corona crisis, the International Coral Reef Symposium (ICRS) will not be held this summer. The new conference dates are July 18 to 23, 2021. The University of Bremen explained that the dynamic spreading of the virus, the protection of all participants, and the travel restrictions were the factors that led to this decision. The accompanying public events, which were planned to take place in the town, are to also take place one year later, if possible. The silver lining of this situation could be that the conference will now be part of the university’s 50th birthday celebrations in 2021.

“This decision was a difficult one to make for our partners and our team but it was necessary,” says Professor Christian Wild from the University of Bremen. The scientist and his team are organizing the significant international conference on the ecosystems of coral reefs. It is the largest marine conference that will have ever taken place in Germany and Europe.


“Our first priority is protecting the health and safety of all conference participants and the visitors to our planned exhibitions and events.”

Up to 3,000 Participants from over 90 Countries

The next months will require a great deal of work, as it is not easy to postpone a conference with around 2,500 to 3,000 participants from over 90 countries by a year.

Above all, the comprehensive, scientific program needs to be updated because the time that has been won will also bring new scientific findings with it.

However, all of this hard work will be worth it. After all, the coral reefs that are in danger form the most important ocean ecosystems. Scientific findings that contribute to their protection will be just as important in 2021 as they are today.

The International Coral Reef Symposium in 2021 will be hosted by the University of Bremen.

Im Focus: When ions rattle their cage

Electrolytes play a key role in many areas: They are crucial for the storage of energy in our body as well as in batteries. In order to release energy, ions - charged atoms - must move in a liquid such as water. Until now the precise mechanism by which they move through the atoms and molecules of the electrolyte has, however, remained largely unknown. Scientists at the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research have now shown that the electrical resistance of an electrolyte, which is determined by the motion of ions, can be traced back to microscopic vibrations of these dissolved ions.

In chemistry, common table salt is also known as sodium chloride. If this salt is dissolved in water, sodium and chloride atoms dissolve as positively or...

Im Focus: Harnessing the rain for hydrovoltaics

Drops of water falling on or sliding over surfaces may leave behind traces of electrical charge, causing the drops to charge themselves. Scientists at the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research (MPI-P) in Mainz have now begun a detailed investigation into this phenomenon that accompanies us in every-day life. They developed a method to quantify the charge generation and additionally created a theoretical model to aid understanding. According to the scientists, the observed effect could be a source of generated power and an important building block for understanding frictional electricity.

Water drops sliding over non-conducting surfaces can be found everywhere in our lives: From the dripping of a coffee machine, to a rinse in the shower, to an...

Im Focus: Blocking the Iron Transport Could Stop Tuberculosis

The bacteria that cause tuberculosis need iron to survive. Researchers at the University of Zurich have now solved the first detailed structure of the transport protein responsible for the iron supply. When the iron transport into the bacteria is inhibited, the pathogen can no longer grow. This opens novel ways to develop targeted tuberculosis drugs.

One of the most devastating pathogens that lives inside human cells is Mycobacterium tuberculosis, the bacillus that causes tuberculosis. According to the...

Im Focus: Physicist from Hannover Develops New Photon Source for Tap-proof Communication

An international team with the participation of Prof. Dr. Michael Kues from the Cluster of Excellence PhoenixD at Leibniz University Hannover has developed a new method for generating quantum-entangled photons in a spectral range of light that was previously inaccessible. The discovery can make the encryption of satellite-based communications much more secure in the future.

A 15-member research team from the UK, Germany and Japan has developed a new method for generating and detecting quantum-entangled photons at a wavelength of...
