INC7: The 7th International Nanotechnology Conference on Communication and Cooperation

29.03.2011
For the seventh year in a row, global senior researchers, industry leaders and policy makers will gather at the International Nanotechnology Conference on Communication and Cooperation.

In 2011, Tsukuba, home city to the country's national testing and research facilities encompassing such research fields as science, industry, agriculture and forestry, environment and space development, will be the communal ground for in-depth discussions and technical sessions on a variety of issues related to the future of international collaboration in nanotechnologies.

In order to further strengthen the continuous dialogue between Japan, Europe and the United States, broad regional overviews will be combined with detailed presentations from each of the regions.

INC is one of the key events for policy makers, industry leaders and senior researchers to attend in order to stay informed of the developments in major research programs worldwide.

VISION

The electronics industry has been the major enabler of the computer, communication and consumer industries throughout the 20th century. They have propelled the growth of the economy Most of the building blocks of these industries will reach fundamental limits by the end of the next decade.

It is of critical importance that these limits are overcome in the next ten years.

OBJECTIVES

Make overview presentations of regional Nanotechnology programs supported by the organizers including Government, Industry, and Academia.
Include a theme on Nano-electronics in each conference
Foster communications and cooperation among Nano-electronics initiatives and other fields, e.g. chemistry, opto/display electronics, biology etc.
Include presentations and posters on relevant nanotechnology subjects from other regions (i.e. non organizers) as submitted by request and subject to availability, to stimulate additional communications and cooperation Technical sessions highlight today's state of affairs and tomorrow's challenges and bottlenecks regarding various related domains in nanoelectronics and explore the links with related areas, such as biotechnology, advanced materials development, microsystems and photonics.

A topical session highlights the economical and societal implications of nanotechnology.

Keynote Speaker: Leo Esaki, Nobel Laureate
"In Half a Century of Research What did I Explore"

Im Focus: New interactive machine learning tool makes car designs more aerodynamic

Scientists develop first tool to use machine learning methods to compute flow around interactively designable 3D objects. Tool will be presented at this year’s prestigious SIGGRAPH conference.

When engineers or designers want to test the aerodynamic properties of the newly designed shape of a car, airplane, or other object, they would normally model...

Im Focus: Robots as 'pump attendants': TU Graz develops robot-controlled rapid charging system for e-vehicles

Researchers from TU Graz and their industry partners have unveiled a world first: the prototype of a robot-controlled, high-speed combined charging system (CCS) for electric vehicles that enables series charging of cars in various parking positions.

Global demand for electric vehicles is forecast to rise sharply: by 2025, the number of new vehicle registrations is expected to reach 25 million per year....

Im Focus: The “TRiC” to folding actin

Proteins must be folded correctly to fulfill their molecular functions in cells. Molecular assistants called chaperones help proteins exploit their inbuilt folding potential and reach the correct three-dimensional structure. Researchers at the Max Planck Institute of Biochemistry (MPIB) have demonstrated that actin, the most abundant protein in higher developed cells, does not have the inbuilt potential to fold and instead requires special assistance to fold into its active state. The chaperone TRiC uses a previously undescribed mechanism to perform actin folding. The study was recently published in the journal Cell.

Actin is the most abundant protein in highly developed cells and has diverse functions in processes like cell stabilization, cell division and muscle...

Im Focus: Lining up surprising behaviors of superconductor with one of the world's strongest magnets

Scientists have discovered that the electrical resistance of a copper-oxide compound depends on the magnetic field in a very unusual way -- a finding that could help direct the search for materials that can perfectly conduct electricity at room temperatur

What happens when really powerful magnets--capable of producing magnetic fields nearly two million times stronger than Earth's--are applied to materials that...

Im Focus: World record: Fastest 3-D tomographic images at BESSY II

The quality of materials often depends on the manufacturing process. In casting and welding, for example, the rate at which melts solidify and the resulting microstructure of the alloy is important. With metallic foams as well, it depends on exactly how the foaming process takes place. To understand these processes fully requires fast sensing capability. The fastest 3D tomographic images to date have now been achieved at the BESSY II X-ray source operated by the Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin.

Dr. Francisco Garcia-Moreno and his team have designed a turntable that rotates ultra-stably about its axis at a constant rotational speed. This really depends...
