International Simulation Conference

11.06.2008
A conference which will showcase current developments in the field of medical simulation training will be hosted by the University of Hertfordshire next week.

SESAM (Society in Europe for Simulation Applied to Medicine) 2008, which will attract delegates from over thirty countries, will take place from 19-21 June in the University of Hertfordshire’s new Hertfordshire Intensive Care & Emergency Centre (HICESC), which is the largest and most advanced medical simulation facility in the UK.

“HICESC is a truly multidisciplinary centre which probably trains a wider range of health professionals than anywhere else in Europe, so it is fitting that we host this major medical simulation conference this year,” said Guillaume Alinier, Chair of SESAM 2008, and University of Hertfordshire HICESC Co-ordinator and National Teaching Fellow.

The conference will host a combination of themed sessions and workshops focusing on new developments in medical simulation across the world, from an educational and technological aspect.

Keynote addresses will be given by Professor Sidarto Bambang Oetomo, from Eindhoven University of Technology, the Netherlands, on The Essentials of team training, the perspective of a neonatologist; Professor David Nicol, from Strathclyde University, on New thinking about assessment and feedback in higher education, Professor Kerstin Dautenhahn, Professor in Artificial Intelligence at the University of Hertfordshire will lecture on Kaspar: a humanoid robot used in healthcare applications and robotics research and Professor Tim Wilson, the University’s Vice-Chancellor, will deliver a keynote on Adding value through collaboration in simulation – a CEO’s perspective.

SESAM 2008 will be hosted by HICESC, the University of Hertfordshire, Hatfield, AL10 9AB. For further information, please contact the conference administrator on 01707 28 6393, email: health-conferences@herts.ac.uk or visit the

Im Focus: Goodbye, silicon? On the way to new electronic materials with metal-organic networks

Scientists at the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research (MPI-P) in Mainz (Germany) together with scientists from Dresden, Leipzig, Sofia (Bulgaria) and Madrid (Spain) have now developed and characterized a novel, metal-organic material which displays electrical properties mimicking those of highly crystalline silicon. The material which can easily be fabricated at room temperature could serve as a replacement for expensive conventional inorganic materials used in optoelectronics.

Silicon, a so called semiconductor, is currently widely employed for the development of components such as solar cells, LEDs or computer chips. High purity...

Im Focus: Storage & Transport of highly volatile Gases made safer & cheaper by the use of “Kinetic Trapping"

Augsburg chemists present a new technology for compressing, storing and transporting highly volatile gases in porous frameworks/New prospects for gas-powered vehicles

Storage of highly volatile gases has always been a major technological challenge, not least for use in the automotive sector, for, for example, methane or...

Im Focus: Disrupting crystalline order to restore superfluidity

When we put water in a freezer, water molecules crystallize and form ice. This change from one phase of matter to another is called a phase transition. While this transition, and countless others that occur in nature, typically takes place at the same fixed conditions, such as the freezing point, one can ask how it can be influenced in a controlled way.

We are all familiar with such control of the freezing transition, as it is an essential ingredient in the art of making a sorbet or a slushy. To make a cold...
