The quest for talents will be viewed from various angles such as how to boost entrepreneurship and innovation. Furthermore how to tackle the environmental and energy challenges in the region as well as the need for a reinforced financial integration will also be on the agenda for the top-level Summit talks. The annual State of the Region Report 2007, built on the WEF Global Competitiveness Report, will be released at the Summit.
The 9th Baltic Development Forum Summit will take place in Tallinn, Estonia on 4-6 November 2007 at the invitation of the Government of Estonia and Tallinn City. It will be held in Hotel Reval Olümpia, Tallinn. Participation in the Summit is by invitation only. Some 450 partners and members will be attending the Summit.
Representatives from print, radio and TV media are invited to cover the event free of charge. A fully equipped press room will be available at the premises. As security will be strict, advance accreditation for media representatives is mandatory and will require on-line registration on http://www.summit2007.bdforum.org. Participants at the Summit have special room rates at Hotel Reval Olümpia, and Estonian Air offers a 15 percent discount rate (booking code: BDF2007).
The Summit programme and a media information package are avialable on http://www.bdforum.org. For further information contact Helena Zimmerdahl Torgerson, Head of Media and Communications Baltic Development Forum: email@example.com +45 27 64 80 76.
Among the confirmed high-level speakers at the Summit are:Toomas Hendrik Ilves, President, Estonia

A new assessment of NASA's record of global temperatures revealed that the agency's estimate of Earth's long-term temperature rise in recent decades is accurate to within less than a tenth of a degree Fahrenheit, providing confidence that past and future research is correctly capturing rising surface temperatures.
The most complete assessment ever of statistical uncertainty within the GISS Surface Temperature Analysis (GISTEMP) data product shows that the annual values...
Physicists at the University of Basel are able to show for the first time how a single electron looks in an artificial atom. A newly developed method enables them to show the probability of an electron being present in a space. This allows improved control of electron spins, which could serve as the smallest information unit in a future quantum computer. The experiments were published in Physical Review Letters and the related theory in Physical Review B.
The spin of an electron is a promising candidate for use as the smallest information unit (qubit) of a quantum computer. Controlling and switching this spin or...
Engineers at the University of Tokyo continually pioneer new ways to improve battery technology. Professor Atsuo Yamada and his team recently developed a...
With a quantum coprocessor in the cloud, physicists from Innsbruck, Austria, open the door to the simulation of previously unsolvable problems in chemistry, materials research or high-energy physics. The research groups led by Rainer Blatt and Peter Zoller report in the journal Nature how they simulated particle physics phenomena on 20 quantum bits and how the quantum simulator self-verified the result for the first time.
Many scientists are currently working on investigating how quantum advantage can be exploited on hardware already available today. Three years ago, physicists...
'Quantum technologies' utilise the unique phenomena of quantum superposition and entanglement to encode and process information, with potentially profound benefits to a wide range of information technologies from communications to sensing and computing.
However a major challenge in developing these technologies is that the quantum phenomena are very fragile, and only a handful of physical systems have been...
