Solutions for our traffic problems and an environmentally friendly mobility can only be found in networks that integrate planning, technical, and socioeconomic know-how. This is the approach that the Centre for Transportation Research at the University of Stuttgart (FOVUS) has taken.
The nine member institutes are hosting the 4th international symposium “Networks for Mobility 2008” on 25 to 26 September. Around 150 participants from all over the world are going to present and discuss solutions to the topics of transportation system planning, traffic control and telematics, and transportation and the environment. The International Association of Public Transport (UITP) is a joint organiser.
From new city models to Stuttgart 21
The english-speaking conference is going to open its doors at 9.30 AM on 25 September 2008. FOVUS spokesperson Prof. Ullrich Martin will give an introductory speech, followed by Rudolf Köberle, Parliamentary State Secretary at the Ministry of the Interior of Baden-Württemberg. Prof. Johann Jessen of the Institute of Urban Planning and Design is then going to start the academic sessions with a presentation on “Mobility and Urbanity – Rethinking Models of the City”.
The conference will continue at 11 AM with presentations on the impact of mega-projects. Wolfgang Arnold (Stuttgarter Straßenbahnen/SSB) is going to talk about a model of integration between land-use and transport, Ulrich Weidmann will provide new insights into the Swiss NEAT project (“Neue Alpen-Transversale”: the new crossing of the Alps). Peter Head (United Kingdom) will then introduce the Chinese City Dongtan as the world’s first eco-city. Starting from 9 AM on 26 September, experts from Japan, Austria, Norway and Germany are going to give lectures on traffic management with focus on the improvement of urban life and smart growth strategies in transportation.
The plenary sessions are complemented by parallel sessions and poster presentations. A detailed program is available at www.uni-stuttgart.de/fovus/ and www.networks-for-mobility.net

A new manufacturing technique uses a process similar to newspaper printing to form smoother and more flexible metals for making ultrafast electronic devices.
The low-cost process, developed by Purdue University researchers, combines tools already used in industry for manufacturing metals on a large scale, but uses...
For the first time ever, scientists have determined the cosmic origin of highest-energy neutrinos. A research group led by IceCube scientist Elisa Resconi, spokesperson of the Collaborative Research Center SFB1258 at the Technical University of Munich (TUM), provides an important piece of evidence that the particles detected by the IceCube neutrino telescope at the South Pole originate from a galaxy four billion light-years away from Earth.
To rule out other origins with certainty, the team led by neutrino physicist Elisa Resconi from the Technical University of Munich and multi-wavelength...
For the first time a team of researchers have discovered two different phases of magnetic skyrmions in a single material. Physicists of the Technical Universities of Munich and Dresden and the University of Cologne can now better study and understand the properties of these magnetic structures, which are important for both basic research and applications.
Whirlpools are an everyday experience in a bath tub: When the water is drained a circular vortex is formed. Typically, such whirls are rather stable. Similar...
Physicists working with Roland Wester at the University of Innsbruck have investigated if and how chemical reactions can be influenced by targeted vibrational excitation of the reactants. They were able to demonstrate that excitation with a laser beam does not affect the efficiency of a chemical exchange reaction and that the excited molecular group acts only as a spectator in the reaction.
A frequently used reaction in organic chemistry is nucleophilic substitution. It plays, for example, an important role in in the synthesis of new chemical...
Optical spectroscopy allows investigating the energy structure and dynamic properties of complex quantum systems. Researchers from the University of Würzburg present two new approaches of coherent two-dimensional spectroscopy.
"Put an excitation into the system and observe how it evolves." According to physicist Professor Tobias Brixner, this is the credo of optical spectroscopy....
