An international symposium to be held in Dresden from 11 to 13 November 2015 will address the recent trends in spatial analysis and modelling of settlements and infrastructure and their benefit for a sustainable land use. Suggested topics for presentation should be submitted by 15 June.
The “International Land Use Symposium (ILUS) 2015” organised by the Leibniz Institute of Ecological Urban and Regional Development (IOER) will be held in Dresden from 11 to 13 November 2015. It is financially supported by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (German Research Foundation, DFG).
In particular, the interdisciplinary meeting will examine new ideas in overlapping fields of studies with the goal of advancing our understanding of built-up areas, and how recent developments in spatial analysis and modelling can lead to sustainable resource management, better support of planning and urban and regional development, enhanced spatial information and knowledge, and optimized strategies, instruments and tools.
The call for abstracts has been published on the symposium website (www.ioer.de/ilus2015), where suggested topics for English-language presentations can be submitted until 15 June. Early-stage researchers are also encouraged to contribute. Selected contributions will be published in a special issue.
The International Symposium brings together leading academics and interested attendees for presentation, discussion, and collaborative networking in the fields of spatial sciences, environmental studies, geography, cartography, GIScience, urban planning, architecture, which relate to investigations of settlements and infrastructure.
Keynote addresses will be held by internationally renowned scientists in the field of spatial analysis such as Denise Pumain from the Panthéon-Sorbonne University in Paris/France, Harvey J. Miller from the Ohio State University in Columbus/USA, Itzhak Benenson from the Tel-Aviv University/Israel as well as Bin Jiang from the University of Gävle/Sweden.

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...

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...
