PREFACE: EPS Euroconference XIX Nuclear Physics Divisional Conference: New Trends in Nuclear Physics Applications and Technology  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

It was with great pleasure that the Department of Nuclear and Theoretical Physics of the University of Pavia and the INFN (Istituto Nazionale di Fisica Nucleare) Structure of Pavia organised the XIX Nuclear Physics Divisional Conference of the European Physical Society, which was held in the historical buildings of the University of Pavia from 5-9 September 2005. The Conference was devoted to the discussion of the most recent experimental and theoretical achievements in the field of Nuclear Physics applications, as well as of the latest developments in technological tools related to Nuclear Physics research. The University of Pavia has a long tradition in Physics and in Applied Physics, being the site where Alessandro Volta developed his "pila", the precursor of the modern battery. This is the place where the first experiments with electricity were conducted and where the term "capacitance" used for capacitors was invented. Today the University hosts a Triga Mark II nuclear reactor, which is used by the Departments of the University of Pavia and by other Universities and private companies as well. Moreover, Pavia is the site selected for the construction of the CNAO complex "Centro Nazionale di Adroterapia Oncologica" (National Centre for Oncological Hadrontherapy), planned for 2005-2008 which represents a unique facility in Italy and will be among the first complexes of this type in Europe. The Conference has gathered together experts in various fields from different countries and has been the occasion to review the present status and to discuss the new emerging trends in Nuclear Physics and its applications to multidisciplinary researches and the development of new technologies. The following topics were treated: Nuclear Techniques in Medicine and Life Sciences (Cancer Therapy, new Imaging and Diagnostics Tools, Radioisotope production, Radiation Protection and Dosimetry). Applications of Nuclear Techniques in Art, Archaeometry and other Interdisciplinary fields. Role of Nuclear Techniques in Environment Problems. Applications of Nuclear Techniques relevant for Civil Security (contraband and explosive detection, search for Weapons of Mass Destruction, Nuclear Safeguards). Nuclear Applications in Space Research. Material and Structure Testing in Research and Industry. New contributions of Nuclear Techniques to the solution of the Energy Production problems and Nuclear Waste Transmutation. Emerging experimental techniques, new detectors and new modeling tools. During the Monday morning Session of the Conference, the 2005 IBA-EUROPHYSICS PRIZE for Applied Nuclear Science and Nuclear Methods in Medicine, sponsored by the Belgian company IBA, was awarded to the two laureates Werner Heil (Mainz) and Pierre Jean Nacher (Paris) for the development of spin polarized 3He targets by optical pumping and their applications in nuclear science and medicine. The meeting was a real success, with 18 invited talks, 66 contributed talks and 31 posters and an overall participation, during five full days, of around 150 scientists from different European and non-European countries. It also hosted a three day industrial exhibition of a selection of Companies that sponsored the event. The Organisers take thos opportunity to thank the University of Pavia, the Amministrazione Comunale di Pavia and the Provincia di Pavia, as well as all exhibitors (Ametek, Ansaldo Superconduttori, Caen, Else, Hamamatsu, IBA, Micos, Micron Semiconductor), for their support of the Conference. The Organisers finally wish to thank the Scientific Secretary of the Conference, Dr Andrea Fontana of INFN Pavia, for the huge amount of work done in preparing the Conference, Mr Claudio Casella of the Department of Nuclear and Theoretical Physics of the University of Pavia for technical support and the Conference staff, Dr Gaia Boghen and the graduate students Federica Devecchi and Silvia Franchino, for their invaluable help.

A two-stage game is used to model firms' strategic incentives to divide production among autonomous competing units through divisionalization, franchising, or divestiture. Firms simultaneously choose their number of competing units, which then engage in Cournot competition. While it is costly to form autonomous units, each firm does so in equilibrium, thus reducing firm profits and increasing social welfare relative to

PREFACE: 31st European Physical Society Conference on Plasma Physics  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

This special issue of Plasma Physics and Controlled Fusion comprises refereed papers contributed by invited speakers at the 31st European Physical Society Conference on Plasma Physics. The conference was jointly hosted by the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory, by the EURATOM/UKAEA Fusion Association and by Imperial College London, where it took place from 28 June to 2 July 2004. The overall agenda for this conference was set by the Board of the Plasma Physics Division of the European Physical Society, chaired by Friedrich Wagner (MPIPP, Garching) and his successor Jo Lister (CRPP, Lausanne). It built on developments in recent years, by further increasing the scientific diversity of the conference programme, whilst maintaining its depth and quality. A correspondingly diverse Programme Committee was set up, whose members are listed below. The final task of the Programme Committee has been the preparation of this special issue. In carrying out this work, as in preparing the scientific programme of the conference, the Programme Committee formed specialist subcommittees representing the different fields of plasma science. The chairmen of these subcommittees, in particular, accepted a very heavy workload on behalf of their respective research communities. It is a great pleasure to take this opportunity to thank: Emilia R Solano (CIEMAT, Madrid), magnetic confinement fusion; Jürgen Meyer-ter-Vehn (MPQ, Garching), laser-plasma interaction and beam plasma physics; and Jean-Luc Dorier (CRPP, Lausanne), dusty plasmas. The relatively few papers in astrophysical and basic plasma physics were co-ordinated by a small subcommittee which I led. Together with Peter Norreys (RAL, Chilton), we five constitute the editorial team for this special issue. The extensive refereeing load, compressed into a short time interval, was borne by the Programme Committee members and by many other experts, to whom this special issue owes much. We are also grateful to the Local Organizing Committee chaired by Henry Hutchinson (RAL, Chilton), and to the Plasma Physics and Controlled Fusion journal team (Institute of Physics Publishing, Bristol), for their work on this conference. At the 2004 European Physical Society Conference on Plasma Physics, plenary invited speakers whose talks spanned the entire field were followed, each day, by multiple parallel sessions which also included invited talks. Invited speakers in both these categories were asked to contribute papers to this special issue (the contributed papers at this conference, and at all recent conferences in this series, are archived at http://epsppd.epfl.ch). The Programme Committee is very grateful to the many invited speakers who have responded positively to this request. Invited papers appear here in their order of presentation during the week beginning 28 June 2004; this ordering provides an echo of the character of the conference, as it was experienced by those who took part.

2011 Physics Education Research Conference Proceedings  

NSDL National Science Digital Library

The theme of the 2011 Physics Education Research (PER) Conference was "Frontiers in Assessment: Instrumentation, Goals & Practices". In a sense, assessments are the instruments of physics education research, and our understanding of teaching and learning is only as good as our understanding of what our instruments can (and cannot) tell us. Physics education researchers use assessments to probe diverse aspects of learning, such as student knowledge, reasoning processes, attitudes and beliefs, and abilities. Researchers must think deeply about the assessments that are used, including their validity and reliability; methodology; alignment with learning, teaching, and research goals; overall purpose; implicit assumptions; and how our current assessment instruments are or are not meeting our objectives as teachers, researchers and learners. PERC 2011 highlighted this theme of assessment, bringing the issue into the foreground of the PER community.

PREFACE: 1982 International Conference on Plasma Physics  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Invited Papers: The Physics of Hot Plasmas During the last decade a dramatic evolution of plasma physics has occurred. Not only have gigantic fusion plasma machines been planned, and are now being built, and elaborate spaceships and antenna systems been constructed to explore remote parts of the cosmos; new observations have revealed fascinating structures in space, ranging from pulsar plasmas under extreme conditions in very strong magnetic fields to large-scale magnetic field and electric current systems in cosmic plasmas. X-rays from very distant sources as well as radio-waves from the plasma in the magnetosphere and in the Aurora have recently been studied with new observational techniques. Ingenious laboratory experiments are continuously being carried out to exploit new fundamental processes in plasmas. These are of great interest for the basic understanding of plasmas and also have immediate consequences for applications, like plasma heating and diagnostics. The theoretical description of new plasma phenomena, and of the plasma state in general poses challenging problems, particularly in situations where high concentration of energy is located in the plasmas. Nonlinear wave analysis and turbulence theory have accordingly been extensively developed to describe in particular the collective plasma phenomena. New concepts have been envisaged like plasma solitons, which may be thought of as excitations of local concentrations of longitudinal plasma waves which turn out to be particularly stable. More and more sophisticated structures of nonlinear nature are being revealed by means of high capacity computer facilities. Simulation experiments allow for studies of chaotic behaviour of plasma particles. Related fields of activity form new trends in the development of plasma theory. The programme of the 1982 International Conference on Plasma Physics, which was held in Göteborg, Sweden, stressed the role of the Physics of Hot Plasmas. Studies of such plasmas are essential, not only for fusion energy development, but also for astro- and space research. Plasmas in different situations often have important features in common. Results obtained under various conditions, in the laboratory or in space, should therefore be compared and interrelated. The Göteborg conference emphasized more than the previous one, which was held in Nagoya, Japan, the astro- and space aspects, but there were still more contributions from the fusion and laboratory research. The fundamental plasma theory part was, however, the most extensive one in the programme. At the conference there were seventy invited talks, including six comprehensive talks addressed to all participants. The remaining sixtyfour invited talks were topical talks. Besides, we had received about 450 contributed papers. About 300 of them were given as posters, and most of the remaining ones were presented as orals. The set of one page abstracts of these contributed papers as well as the titles of the invited talks were collected in two volumes, which were sent to all participants a month before the conference. Another set, the four page papers, which had been carefully prepared by the authors for photoreproduction to one page papers, were published in a volume of proceedings of some 460 pages available at the conference. When trying to classify the contributions, it turned out that they fell naturally into four main categories, namely: General Theory Space and Astro Plasmas Fusion Laboratory Plasmas For practical reasons we had to divide the Abstracts into two Volumes, the first one including categories (1) and (2), and the second one the two remaining categories (3) and (4). In publishing the invited talks from the conference we had to handle a great number of extensive papers. It turned out to be natural to have also the invited papers published in two parts, as two separate numbers of Physica Scripta, the first one devoted to (1) General Theory, and (2) Space and Astro Plasmas, whereas the second one to (3) Fusion and (4) Laboratory Plasmas.

There are several areas of interest that can be used to characterize the work of physics education researchers. These areas include conceptual learning/conceptual difficulties, problem solving skills, epistemological issues, individual and social issues (including teaming, learning styles, gender, race and ethnicity) and the role of context in learning. This conference will focus on research that explicitly crosses over the "boundaries" of two or more of these areas. An example is the role of conceptual understanding in successful quantitative problem solving. Another example is the importance of epistemological considerations in teaching for conceptual understanding.

“Radiation Physics” covers a very broad spectrum of research. It certainly includes everything done with synchrotron radiation but extends far beyond that. Thus this conference, which attracted nearly 200 participants from all over the world to the University of Melbourne (Australia) on September 20–25, 2009, not only embraced synchrotron radiation's close family relatives, such as neutron scattering studies, but also

36th International Conference on High Energy Physics  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The Australian particle physics community was honoured to host the 36th ICHEP conference in 2012 in Melbourne. This conference has long been the reference event for our international community. The announcement of the discovery of the Higgs boson at the LHC was a major highlight, with huge international press coverage. ICHEP2012 was described by CERN Director-General, Professor Rolf Heuer, as a landmark conference for our field. In additional to the Higgs announcement, important results from neutrino physics, from flavour physics, and from physics beyond the standard model also provided great interest. There were also updates on key accelerator developments such as the new B-factories, plans for the LHC upgrade, neutrino facilities and associated detector developments. ICHEP2012 exceeded the promise expected of the key conference for our field, and really did provide a reference point for the future.

PREFACE: International Nuclear Physics Conference 2010 (INPC2010)  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The International Nuclear Physics Conference 2010 (INPC 2010) was held from 4-9 July in Vancouver, Canada, hosted by TRIUMF, the Canadian National Laboratory for Particle and Nuclear Physics. The INPC is the main conference in the field of nuclear physics, endorsed and supported by IUPAP (International Union for Pure and Applied Physics) and held every three years. This year's conference was the 25th in the series and attracted over 750 delegates (150 graduate students) from 43 countries. The conference's hallmark is its breadth in nuclear physics; topics included structure, reactions, astrophysics, hadronic structure, hadrons in nuclei, hot and dense QCD, new accelerators and underground nuclear physics facilities, neutrinos and nuclei, and applications and interdisciplinary research. The conference started with a public lecture 'An Atom from Vancouver' by L Krauss (Arizona), who gave a broad perspective on how nuclear physics is key to a deeper understanding of how the Universe was formed and the birth, life, and death of stars. The conference opened its scientific plenary program with a talk by P Braun-Munzinger (GSI/EMMI Darmstadt) who highlighted the progress that has been made since the last conference in Tokyo 2007. The presentation showcased theoretical and experimental examples from around the world. All topics were well represented by plenary sessions and well attended afternoon parallel sessions where over 250 invited and contributed talks were presented, in addition to over 380 poster presentations. The poster sessions were among the liveliest, with high participation and animated discussions from graduate students and post-doctoral fellows. Many opportunities were found to connect to fellow nuclear physicists across the globe and, particularly for conferences like the INPC which span an entire field, many unexpected links exist, often leading to new discussions or collaborations. Among the scientific highlights were the presentations in the fields of Hot and Dense QCD reporting on experimental and theoretical progress at the RHIC facility. The Nuclear Reactions session provided highlights from the many new and exciting facilities including the RIKEN RIBF in Japan, and an outlook of what we can expect from FAIR (Germany) and FRIB (USA). The quest towards the 'Island of Stability' for the Superheavy Element community is still on, and new progress was reported with the identification of element 114. Impressive progress in the theoretical sector, in particular with ab-initio approaches, was presented as well. Applications of these methods and progress in the nucleon-nucleon interactions were presented in the Nuclear Structure session, where 3-body forces interactions are now considered state of the art. Predictions of such calculations can then be tested by experiments, as presented, for example, for ground state properties of exotic nuclei with laser experiments and ion trap measurements. In-beam or in-flight experiments pave the way to even more exotic isotopes where new magic numbers for the nuclear shell model are appearing. This will also prove relevant for Nuclear Astrophysics, where significant progress was achieved experimentally with new direct capture reaction measurements with rare beams and background suppressed facilities located in underground laboratories. Neutron star research and new modeling results of core-collapse supernovae were presented, which clearly indicated the need for neutrino interactions. Neutrinos also played a large role in other sessions such as the New Facilities and Instrumentation session where, among other new exciting projects, the deep underground facilities were presented. The first beam results from long-baseline oscillation experiments showed progress in this field, and double-beta decay experiments are nearing their first possible results, something that the community of nuclear physicists, but also others, are keenly waiting for. The Standard Model Tests and Fundamental Symmetries session is always one of the conference highlights. There, progress on Standard Model te

PREFACE: The Anglo-French Physical Acoustics Conference  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The Anglo-French Physical Acoustics Conference (AFPAC) had its 8th annual meeting at Arcachon in France, between 8 to 10 December 2008. This series of meetings is a successful collaboration between the Physical Acoustics Group (PAG) of the Institute of Physics and the Groupe d'Acoustique Physique, Sous-marine et UltraSonore (GAPSUS) of the Société Française d'Acoustique. First established in 2001, the aim of this annual conference is to provide a forum where the most recent research developments in the field of Physical Acoustics in the UK and France are reviewed. AFPAC alternates between venues in the UK and France and the format has been designed to be 'small and friendly'. The conference attracts the main research leaders in the two countries and likes to encourage research students in particular to have their debut presentations at this event. Every year the organisers also invite a number of keynote speakers who are leading international authorities in their fields. For the meeting in Arcachon, the invited speakers included Dame Anne Dowling of Cambridge University, Anthony Kent of Nottingham University, Michel Bruneau of Université du Maine, Richard Hazelwood, Jérôme Vasseur of Institut d'Electronique, de Micro électronique et de Nanotechnologie and Michel Castaings of Laboratoire de Mécanique Physique of Université Bordeaux 1. The scope of the conference is kept intentionally wide so as to encourage cross-fertilisation of ideas across different application areas in the field of Physical Acoustics. Presentations in the past have covered non-destructive evaluation and material characterisation, medical ultrasound, underwater acoustics and ultrasonic sensors. This is the first time the proceedings of AFPAC are being published in the event's history and the participants were invited to submit manuscripts for publication. As a result there are 9 peer reviewed papers from a total of 34 that were presented at the meeting. In view of the high standard of refereeing that the editors have applied to the received manuscripts, it is hoped that in future years the number of papers submitted for publication in the conference proceedings will grow.

Microcosm to Cosmos: The Growth of a Divisional Computer Network  

PubMed Central

In 1982, we reported the deployment of a network of microcomputers in the Division of Gastroenterology[1]. This network was based upon Corvus Systems Omninet®. Corvus was one of the very first firms to offer networking products for PC's. This PC development occurred coincident with the planning phase of the Johns Hopkins Hospital's multisegment ethernet project. A rich communications infra-structure is now in place at the Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions[2,3]. Shortly after the hospital development under the direction of the Operational and Clinical Systems Division (OCS) development began, the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine began an Integrated Academic Information Management Systems (IAIMS) planning effort. We now present a model that uses aspects of all three planning efforts (PC networks, Hospital Information Systems & IAIMS) to build a divisional computing facility. This facility is viewed as a terminal leaf on then institutional network diagram. Nevertheless, it is noteworthy that this leaf, the divisional resource in the Division of Gastroenterology (GASNET), has a rich substructure and functionality of its own, perhaps revealing the recursive nature of network architecture. The current status, design and function of the GASNET computational facility is discussed. Among the major positive aspects of this design are the sharing and centralization of MS-DOS software, the high-speed DOS/Unix link that makes available most of the our institution's computing resources.

The Washington Conference on Theoretical Physics: Bringing the Spirit of Copenhagen to Foggy Bottom  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

When George Gamow was offered a position at George Washington University in 1934, one of the conditions he set for acceptance was the establishment of an annual physics conference at that university, co-sponsored by the Carnegie Institution. Foggy Bottom, the Washington neighborhood where GWU is located, was not particularly known for physics. Gamow, however, wished to bring the ``spirit of Copenhagen'' to that locale and attract an international group of theorists. The Washington Conference on Theoretical Physics first convened in 1935 and assembled annually until 1947, except for a three year break during the war. Ironically, just like the Institute for Theoretical Physics in Copenhagen itself, the conference was galvanized the most by Bohr's actual presence. In its fifth, and best known meeting, held in 1939, Bohr stunned the audience when he announced the successful completion of nuclear fission. After the tenth meeting in 1947, Gamow's focus had been turning from nuclear physics to cosmology, he had begun to work more closely with graduate students and local collaborators and, in light of diminished interest, the conference was no longer held. In this talk I will delineate the successes and limitations of the Washington Conference on Theoretical Physics. )

First of all, I would like to thank the scientific committee, the conference organizers, the University of Karlsruhe and the Institute for Experimental Nuclear Physics, all of the speakers, and the conference secretariat, for making this an extremely well-organized and uniformly high-quality meeting. I would also like to thank all of the speakers who provided me with material for my talk before and during the conference. There is obviously no point in these proceedings in attempting to repeat all of the material from the individual contributions; by definition, these are all available earlier in this volume. In the written version, therefore, I will try to give a high level overview of the current state of hadron collider physics and to highlight the connections between the many presentations at this conference.

Catenin-Dependent Cadherin Function Drives Divisional Segregation of Spinal Motor Neurons  

PubMed Central

Motor neurons that control limb movements are organised as a neuronal nucleus in the developing ventral horn of the spinal cord called the lateral motor column. Neuronal migration segregates motor neurons into distinct lateral and medial divisions within the lateral motor column that project axons to dorsal or ventral limb targets respectively. This migratory phase is followed by an aggregation phase whereby motor neurons within a division that project to the same muscle cluster together. These later phases of motor neuron organisation depend on limb-regulated differential cadherin expression within motor neurons. Initially, all motor neurons display the same cadherin expression profile and this coincides with the migratory phase of motor neuron segregation. Here, we show that in the chicken embryo this early, pan-motor neuron, cadherin function drives the divisional segregation of spinal motor neurons by controlling motor neuron migration. We manipulate pan-motor neuron cadherin function through dissociation of cadherin binding to their intracellular partners. We find that of the major intracellular transducers of cadherin signalling, ?-catenin and ?-catenin predominate in the lateral motor column. In vivo manipulations that uncouple cadherin-catenin binding disrupt divisional segregation via deficits in motor neuron migration. Additionally, reduction of the expression of cadherin-7, a cadherin predominantly expressed in motor neurons only during their migration, also perturbs divisional segregation. Our results show that ?-catenin-dependent cadherin function is required for spinal motor neuron migration and divisional segregation and suggest a prolonged role for cadherin expression in all phases of motor neuron organisation.

Proceedings of the Conference on Statistical Problems for Particle Physics, Astrophysics and Cosmology (PHYSTAT2003)  

SciTech Connect

PHYSTAT2003 was a Conference held at SLAC on September 8th-11th, 2003. Its theme was ''Statistical Problems in Particle Physics, Astrophysics and Cosmology''. It followed on from the Confidence Limits Workshops held at CERN and Fermilab in 2000, and a conference in 2002 at the Institute for Particle Physics Phenomenology in Durham, UK. PHYSTAT2003 differed from the earlier meetings in two important respects. While the first three meetings had been attended largely by particle physicists, at SLAC there was also involvement of astrophysicists and cosmologists. Secondly, the SLAC meeting really benefited from a strong presence of statisticians. They enhanced the usefulness of the Conference in many ways: they were involved in the planning stage, gave invited and contributed talks, and were simply ''there'' to discuss statistical issues with physicists in the breaks between the sessions.

Japan - UK Conference: Trends in Physics and Chemistry Education in Secondary Schools  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

This conference, held in Tokyo between 3-5 April 1998, was the most recent product of a now longstanding involvement between British and Japanese physics teachers which has grown out of a personal friendship between Brenda Jennison (Cambridge University and Vice Chair of the Education Group) and Tae Ryu (Sophia University). For a number of years British teachers have hosted Japanese counterparts at the annual ASE meetings and in visits to schools following the conference. For this conference a team of four physicists, Brenda Jennison, lan Lawrence (King's School Worcester), Philip Britton (Leeds Grammar School) and Phil Scott (University of Leeds) travelled to Japan to contribute to a conference and visit schools and University Departments. Feelings on reading a conference report can too often resemble the experience of being shown a friend's holiday snaps. They are clearly very interesting but equally clearly your friend is enjoying it more than you are, because the snaps are rekindling memories and thoughts. This set of reflections is an attempt to report on just four of those memories and thoughts rather than describe the pictures. Why organize an international conference? The conference was an event that almost took more months of tireless organization than it lasted in hours. It was conceived and brought to fruition amongst a welter of e-mail communications between Brenda Jennison, Tae Ryu and Maurice Jenkins of the British Council, who sponsored the event. Given this immense organizational task, just why did we bother? What can be gained by holding such an international event? The significant benefit of discussing issues between two cultures is clarifying which are the issues that are intrinsically due to the nature of physics teaching rather than the extrinsic effects of educational systems and customs. Unsurprisingly pupil motivation, pupil numbers, relevance, `up-to-date-ness' and the role of mathematics emerged as concerns in both cultures. Also there are always benefits from gaining a wider view. Whether this is a need to see a classroom other than your own, a school other than your own or a country other than your own, the result is the same: setting challenges and discussions in context and helping to provide a sense of perspective. What we had to give to the conference During the conference the British contingent reviewed the present state of science education in Britain, particularly giving information on the Institute of Physics 16-19 Initiative and National Curriculum consultation, concentrating rather more on the principles than the detail, which by nature was not immediately relevant to the audience. To this was added a research perspective on Children's Learning in Science, focusing on the importance of discussion and conversation in reaching understanding. The central day was dominated by workshops attempting to argue why we undertake some experimental work in physics education. Four possible purposes of practical work were identified and then demonstrated by a hands-on practical circus. An investigative practical, necessarily open-ended and probably empirically messy, possibly not yielding clean results. A clearly illustrative practical intended to readily allow observation and discussion of a phenomenon with the ability to alter appropriate parameters and stimulating discussion. Practical work intended to produce clear, reproducible, reliable results if good care is taken: the `can-do' aspect of physics giving pride in obtaining a result. The demonstration intended to stimulate teacher-led class discussion. The abiding memory of this practical circus was of its role as the ultimate international ice-breaker. Previously formal conference discussion became animated and language difficulties became less important as teachers engaged in the truly international business of playing with and becoming fascinated with practical apparatus. What we gained from the conference On the Saturday evening we were treated to demonstrations by groups of physics and chemistry teachers of apparatus that they had made. T

The 3^rd International Conference on Women in Physics: Global Perspectives, Common Concerns, Worldwide Views  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The 3^rd International Conference on Women in Physics (ICWIP), held in Seoul, Korea, in October 2008, brought together 300 participants from 57 countries, including a diverse 22-member U.S. Delegation, for a 3-day summit of stimulating discussions, thought-provoking presentations, inspirational posters, and networking. Held under the auspices of the Working Group on Women in Physics of the International Union of Pure and Applied Physics (IUPAP), this meeting built on the successes of the 1^st (Paris, 2002) and 2^nd (Rio de Janeiro, 2005) Conferences and further clarified the importance of diversifying the field of physics worldwide. Although considerable progress has been made since 2002, it was clear that the global scientific workforce is still under-utilizing a large percentage of the available female talent pool. If human society is to benefit to its fullest from various contributions that the field of physics can offer in addressing global issues of economic crisis, energy, environment, water, health, poverty, and hunger, women of all races and nationalities need to become fully included and engaged in the national and international physical community. To address these and many other issues, the ICWIP unanimously approved a five-part resolution to IUPAP recommending actions to promote the recruitment, retention, and advancement of women in physics and related fields.

PREFACE: IC-MSQUARE 2012: International Conference on Mathematical Modelling in Physical Sciences  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The first International Conference on Mathematical Modelling in Physical Sciences (IC-MSQUARE) took place in Budapest, Hungary, from Monday 3 to Friday 7 September 2012. The conference was attended by more than 130 participants, and hosted about 290 oral, poster and virtual papers by more than 460 pre-registered authors. The first IC-MSQUARE consisted of different and diverging workshops and thus covered various research fields in which mathematical modelling is used, such as theoretical/mathematical physics, neutrino physics, non-integrable systems, dynamical systems, computational nanoscience, biological physics, computational biomechanics, complex networks, stochastic modelling, fractional statistics, DNA dynamics, and macroeconomics. The scientific program was rather heavy since after the Keynote and Invited Talks in the morning, two parallel sessions ran every day. However, according to all attendees, the program was excellent with a high level of talks and the scientific environment was fruitful; thus all attendees had a creative time. The mounting question is whether this occurred accidentally, or whether IC-MSQUARE is a necessity in the field of physical and mathematical modelling. For all of us working in the field, the existing and established conferences in this particular field suffer from two distinguished and recognized drawbacks: the first is the increasing orientation, while the second refers to the extreme specialization of the meetings. Therefore, a conference which aims to promote the knowledge and development of high-quality research in mathematical fields concerned with applications of other scientific fields as well as modern technological trends in physics, chemistry, biology, medicine, economics, sociology, environmental sciences etc., appears to be a necessity. This is the key role that IC-MSQUARE will play. We would like to thank the Keynote Speaker and the Invited Speakers for their significant contributions to IC-MSQUARE. We would also like to thank the members of the International Scientific Committee and the members of the Organizing Committee.

PREFACE: XIII International Conference on Calorimetry in High Energy Physics (CALOR 2008)  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The XIII International Conference on Calorimetry in High Energy Physics was held in Pavia, Italy, 26-30 May 2008, picking up the baton from the 2006 Conference in Chicago. The Conference took place in the unique environment of the Theresian Room of the University Library. The attendees were surrounded by over 40 000 books of general interest and culture, and had the opportunity to see precious volumes written by such people as Galileo, Volta and Faraday. The Workshop brought together more than 120 participants, including senior scientists as well as young physicists, confirming the central and ever-growing role of calorimeters in modern particle physics. The development of these detectors, as stressed by Professor Klaus Pretzl in his lectio magistralis, has made it possible to explore new frontiers in physics, and the present scenario is no exception to this rule. With the LHC experiments almost completely installed and ready to take data, the Conference was an ideal chance to review the status of the different projects, whose development has been followed and discussed throughout the entire Calor series, and to show that they are capable of meeting the design specifications. Other highlights were the performance and physics results of calorimeters installed in currently operating experiments. In the session on astrophysics and neutrinos, the contributions confirmed the key role of calorimeters in this sector and demonstrated their growing application even beyond the field of accelerator physics. Considerable time was devoted to the state-of-the-art techniques in the design and operation of the detectors, while the session on simulation addressed the importance of a thorough understanding of the shower development to meet the demanding requirements of present experiments. Finally, on the R&D side, the particle flow and dual read-out concepts confronted the challenges issued by the next generation of experiments. This complex material was reviewed in 83 presentations, now reported in these proceedings, that were debated in stimulating and fruitful discussions. Outside of the Workshop, the participants were able to visit the historical Halls and Museum of the University, whose foundation dates back to the year 1361, and to enjoy a visit to the Certosa, a Carthusian monastery renowned for its exuberant architecture. Pavia welcomed the Conference participants by opening the doors of the Town Hall and offering a reception during which the Mayor's address underlined the importance of research and its applications in modern society. The successful organization and the smooth running of the Conference is due to many people and Institutions. We gratefully acknowledge the financial support of the Istituto Nazionale di Fisica Nucleare (INFN), the Department of Nuclear and Theoretical Physics and the University of Pavia, that made the Workshop possible, together with the contribution of our sponsors. The University also opened some rooms of the Chancellor's suite for the lunch and coffee breaks, and hosted the Conference Secretariat. We would like to express our deepest gratitude to the INFN and Department technical staff, who helped to prepare the Hall for the Conference and to provide computer services, and to the staff of the Theresian Library, who gave us access to the Room and organized a display of the many historical books from their vast and precious collections which are of interest to physicists. Above all, the success of the meeting is due to the participants who animated it, and in particular to the speakers for their dedicated work in preparing their excellent talks and in providing the write-ups, and to the conveners for their essential role in shaping an interesting and well balanced scientific program. Finally, we wish to thank the International Advisory Committee for their unfailing support and for offering us the opportunity to organize this Conference in Pavia.

PREFACE: 7th International Conference on Applications of Physics in Financial Analysis  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

This volume contains contributed papers from the 7th international conference on 'Applications of Physics in Financial Analysis (APFA)' held at Tokyo on 1-5 March 2009. The conference was organized jointly by Tokyo Institute of Technology and Hitotsubashi University with support from the Research Institute of Economy, Trade, and Industry (RIETI), Physical Society of Japan, Japanese Economic Association, Information Processing Society of Japan, Japanese Society for Artificial Intelligence, and Japan Association for Evolutionary Economics. The first APFA conference (APFA1) was held in 1999 at Dublin, followed by APFA2 at Liege in 2000, APFA3 at London in 2001, APFA4 at Warsaw in 2003, APFA5 at Torino in 2006, and APFA6 at Lisbon in 2007. The 7th APFA conference, which is the first meeting held outside Europe, was attended by 223 researchers in physics and economics from 23 countries world-wide. In keeping with past APFA conferences, we paid special attention to issues in financial markets, which turned out to be very timely. The conference was held in March 2009, in the middle of the global financial crisis that originally started in the US and spread quickly to every corner of the world. The topic of the conference is 'New Approaches to the Analysis of Large Scale Business and Economic data'. The rapid development of information and communication technology has enabled financial/non-financial firms to keep detailed records of their business activities in the form of, for example, tick-by-tick data in financial markets, point-of-sale (POS) data on individual household's purchasing activity, and interfirm network data describing relationships among firms in terms of suppliers/customers transactions and ownerships. This growth in the scope and amount of business data available to researchers has led to a far-reaching expansion in research possibilities. Researchers not only in social sciences but also in physics, mathematics, and information sciences have recently become interested in such datasets, conducting empirical investigations about various aspects of economic activities. Specifically, they have searched for regularities and 'laws' akin to the ones in natural science, successfully producing fascinating results, as shown in the papers contained in this volume. Each paper submitted for publication in this volume has gone through the refereeing process, and has been revised on the basis of comments and discussion at the conference as well as comments from the anonymous referees. Finally, 19 papers were accepted for publication. The editors are very grateful to the colleagues involved in the refereeing process for their rapid and careful reviewing of the papers. We thank Takayuki Mizuno, Koji Sakai, Hiwon Yoon and Hiroki Matsui for their support for the conference. We appreciate the administrative assistance provided by Yayoi Hatano of Hitotsubashi University, and Masahiko Ozaki, Masato Yamada and Tomoko Kase of RIETI. We are most grateful to the authors for their contributions, as well as to the participants, all of whom made this conference stimulating and enjoyable.

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The International Conference on Theoretical Physics `Dubna-Nano2008' was held on 7-11 July 2008 at the Bogoliubov Laboratory of Theoretical Physics, Joint Institute for Nuclear Research, Dubna, Moscow region, Russia. The conference provided the opportunity for the presentation and discussion of theoretical and experimental advances in the rapidly growing area of the nanophysics, with the accent on its theoretical aspects. The multidisciplinary character of the conference allowed an effective exchange of ideas between different areas of nanophysics. The following topics were covered: carbon nanosystems (fullerenes, nanotubes, graphene), quantum dots, electron and spin transport, spectroscopy and dynamics of atomic clusters, Josephson junctions, bio-complexes, and applications of nanosystems. Approximately 90 scientists from 16 countries participated in the conference. The program included 48 oral talks and 40 posters. The 51 contributions are included in this proceedings. We would like to express our gratitude to all participants for their presentations and discussions, which made the conference so successful. We are deeply indebted to the members of the International Advisory Committee (Professors T Ando, S Datta, A V Eletskii, J Fabian, F Guinea, P Hawrylak, K Kadowaki, T Koyama, Yu I Latushev, N F Pedersen, P-G Reinhard, J M Rost, A Ya Vul') and the Local Organizing Committee for their fruitful work. The financial support of BLTP JINR, Russian Foundation for Basic Research, Heisenberg-Landau Program and Bogoliubov-Infeld Program was of a great importance.

24th IUPAP Conference on Computational Physics (2012): Introduction, acknowledgements, program  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Welcome to CCP2012, held next to the K computer site in Kobe and in Japan's best season. The Conference on Computational Physics (CCP) is organized annually under the auspices of Commission 20 of the IUPAP (International Union of Pure and Applied Physics). This is the first time it has been held in Japan. I was asked to be the chairman about two and half years ago and when I accepted the request I decided to make the conference very unique and different from the traditional style of CCP. I was not satisfied when I attended big conferences where the parallel sessions are classified with the name of the research field. These days we have many opportunities to attend domestic and international conferences, where it is possible to listen to many talks on the same topics. If the topics are very new, then the conference is very useful for my research. However, I wanted to have a conference where I could listen to a variety of topics carried out with the same method. Computational science is very unique and it is easy to organize a new type of conference with the classification in the horizontal direction of the matrix made of the names of research fields and the name of numerical methods. You may be able to list the names of methods easily; finite difference, Monte Carlo, particle, molecular dynamics and so on. I was dissatisfied to find that most conferences focus solely on research fields and the method that brings to the scientific research is not highlighted as much. I wanted to listen to topics from fundamental physics to industrial science in a systematic way. In order to create such a conference, a small number of experts is not enough, so I asked for the help of more than 100 Japanese computer scientists, in a variety of fields. We called this group the Japan Advisory Board (JAB). I asked them to recommend a member of the International Advisory Board (IAB). Then, we could start making the list of plenary and invited speakers. This was almost the end of March last year. CCP2012 is organized also to celebrate the shared use of the K computer and we selected a venue next to it. Its use is of course open to the public and started on 28 September, one month earlier than had been scheduled. I hope you also enjoy the guided tour of the K computer. Throughout CCP2012, I hope new collaborations start among scientists in different fields. It would be also my great pleasure if such an inter-disciplinary conference encouraged young scientists (with their fresh energy and skills) to challenge new topics in different fields, particularly emerging ones like bio-computing, industrial applications, social sciences and so on. Finally, allow me to express my sincere thanks to all members of the local organizing committee (LOC). Twenty scientists from three universities and one institute voluntarily worked very hard to prepare CCP2012. Hideaki Takabe (Aki) The Chairman, CCP2012

Seventh annual National Conference of Black Physics students. Summary report, February 12--13, 1993  

SciTech Connect

The 1993 conference hosted a wide variety of presentations and activities. Continuing the NCBPS tradition, we offered technical physics presentations, tours of physics research facilities, a career and educational fair, technical presentations by students, dinner speakers and a dance. New this, year were the interactive workshops (described in the section entitled ``New Features``). We included a ``celebrity`` speaker -- Col. Fred Gregory, an African-American NASA astronaut This presentation was featured on the local TV news. There were two last minute changes to the program They included: the replacement of Howard Adams and Tim Childs with Sylvia Wilson and Warren Buck, respectively. Howard Adams was ill and canceled a couple of days in advance. He recommended Sylvia Wilson, also of the GEM Program, as a replacement speaker. The substitution worked quite well, especially since our program was lacking in female speakers. Tim Childs missed his flight so Warren Buck, who attended the conference as an observer, generously filled in at the last minute. We ran a brief survey of the corporate, governmental and educational recruiters who were part of our Career/Educational Fair. Of 15 recruiters, 9 responded to the survey. All who responded said they were pleased with the conference arrangements. See Appendix C for the complete results of the Survey for Recruiters.

PREFACE: 8th International Conference on the Physics of Highly Charged Ions (HCI-96)  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

These proceedings contain the papers presented at the Eighth International Conference on the Physics of Highly Charged Ions (HCI-96) which was held on September 23-26, 1996 in Omiya, Saitama, Japan, hosted by the Institute of Physical and Chemical Research (RIKEN). The first conference of this series was held in Stockholm, Sweden in 1982. The subject was the "Production and Physics of Highly Charged Ions". The conference has since been held every other year; in Oxford, UK (1984), Groningen, the Netherlands (1986), Grenoble, France (1988), Giessen, Germany (1990), Manhattan, Kansas, USA (1992) and Vienna, Austria (1994). When the first conference of this series was held, various highly charged ions were available from many heavy ion accelerators, which had been constructed since the 1960's, and ion sources such as EBIS and ECRIS, which were then new facilities. Subsequently, many other experimental techniques have been developed to study or to control highly charged ions, such as ion traps, EBIT's, storage rings, high-brilliance synchrotron radiation, and so forth. Now the properties of highly charged ions themselves and their interactions with various kinds of materials can be studied systematically using ions of any element at various collision energies. These studies will result in a deeper insight into their nature as well as giving us important basic data for use in the fields closely related to atomic physics. About 190 scientists from 18 countries registered at the HCI-96. The number of invited talks was 21 and that of contrib- uted papers 215. In these proceedings, 20 papers of invited talks and 116 papers on contributions are included. They are classified into categories of "Structure and Spectroscopy of Highly Charged Ions and Fundamental Aspects", "Highly Charged Ions in Plasmas and Strong Fields", "Interactions of Highly Charged Ions with Atoms and Ions", "Dynamic Processes Related to Molecules and Clusters", "Interactions of Highly Charged Ions with Surfaces and Solids" and "Pro- duction and Utilization of Highly Charged Ions and Experimental Methods". The success of this HCI-96 is based on the wide-ranging experience inherited from the organizers of previous HCI conferences, the contribution of the International Advisory Committee members who decided on the invited speakers, the excellent talks by invited speakers and steering by session chairpersons as well as the considerable efforts of the chairper- sons who chose the talks and posters for "Selected Topics" and "Selected Posters", and the eager presentations and dis- cussions by all the participants. Last, but not least, we also owe much of the success of this conference to our sponsors. The impression of the HCI-96, apart from the scientific interests, may have been further emphasized by the typhoon that attacked the Tokyo area on September 22 causing considerable confusion to flights and traffic. We hope this mischief of nature was compensated for by the half-day trip to the old city of Kawagoe, which is called small Edo (the old name of Tokyo in the period of Tokugawa Shogunate), where we also enjoyed dance and music inherited from the Edo period. The next International Conference on the Physics of Highly Charged Ions will be organized by Prof. Paul Mokler of GSI and his colleagues. We hope we can all meet again in 1998 at Bensheim, Germany. Finally, we thank MS Kazuko Kobayashi of the Library Division, RIKEN, for her invaluable assistance in the prep- aration of this publication.

PREFACE: 15th International Conference on the Physics of Highly Charged Ions  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

This issue contains papers presented at the 15th International Conference on the Physics of Highly Charged Ions, HCI2010. The conference was held at Fudan University, Shanghai, 29 August-3 September 2010. HCI is a biannual conference series going back to the very first conference held in Stockholm, Sweden in 1982. Previous editions in this millennium were held in Berkeley, USA, 2000; Caen, France, 2002; Vilnius, Lithuania, 2004; Belfast, UK, 2006, and Tokyo, Japan, 2008. The physics of highly charged ions, HCIs, is of great interest due to their key role in testing quantum electrodynamics in strong fields, and possible testing of parity non-conservation. However, HCIs also play crucial roles in the physics of hot plasmas, for example those produced in tokamak fusion devices and in inertial confinement fusion experiments. Much of the diagnostics of matter under such extreme environments relies very heavily on high quality atomic data of HCIs. The field of x-ray astronomy hinges almost entirely on the use of spectral lines from HCIs to provide information from distant astrophysical plasmas and objects. Given these fundamental interests and the current rapid developments in fusion and x-ray astronomy, it is clear that the physics of HCIs is a rich area of research with strong and important connections to many important subfields of physics. New application areas of HCI physics are also under development: two examples are (a) to provide 13.5 nm—and later half of this wavelength—radiation for lithography and (b) applications in medical research. The need for high quality atomic data of HCIs is as important now as it has ever been. HCI2010 was attended by over 200 scientists from around 20 countries; see the following table. Over 70 of the participants were students, which is very encouraging for the future of HCI related physics. The academic programme was organized based on the suggestions from the International Advisory Board, and consisted of six review lectures, nine progress reports, one local report and 21 selected talks.

The proceedings could never have been published without the diligent work of the referees and we are very grateful for their help. The order of the 69 articles follows the five classic subfields of the HCI conference: Fundamental aspects, structure and spectroscopy Collisions with electrons, ions, atoms and molecules Interactions with clusters, surfaces and solids Interactions with photons, plasmas and strong field processes Production, experimental developments and applications. The day before the official opening of HCI2010, Sunday 29 August, we welcomed the conference delegates with a reception held at the Guanghua (Fudan twin towers) 15th floor 'sky bar' restaurant. Two poster sessions were arranged for the contributed papers on the afternoons of 30 and 31 August. After a visit to the Shanghai Synchrotron Radiation Facility on the afternoon of Wednesday 1 September we enjoyed a conference dinner at the Shanghai Sea Palace restaurant. Throughout the dinner we were entertained with traditional Chinese music by members of Fudan University's folk music group. A visit to the Shanghai 2010 World Expo, the largest World Expo in history (so far), was arranged for the Thursday afternoon. Finally the conference came to a close at lunchtime on Friday 3 September.

PREFACE: 14th International Conference on the Physics of Highly Charged Ions (HCI 2008)  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

This volume contains the Proceedings of the 14th International Conference on the Physics of Highly Charged Ions (HCI2008), held at the University of Electro-Communications, Chofu, Tokyo, Japan from 1-5 September 2008. This series of conferences began in Stockholm, Sweden in 1982 and has since been held every other year; in Oxford, UK (1984), Groningen, the Netherlands (1986), Grenoble, France (1988), Giessen, Germany (1990), Manhattan, Kansas, USA (1992), Vienna, Austria (1994), Omiya, Japan (1996), Bensheim, Germany (1998), Berkeley, USA (2000), Caen, France (2002), Vilnius, Lithuania (2004) and Belfast, UK (2006). Highly charged ions (HCI), which are defined as highly ionized (i.e. positively charged atomic) ions here, mainly exist in hot plasmas such as the solar corona and fusion plasmas. It is true that its importance in plasma physics has driven researchers to the spectroscopic studies of HCIs, but the spectroscopy of few-electron ions is not only important for plasmas but also interesting for fundamental atomic physics. Electrons moving fast near a heavy nucleus give a suitable system to test the fundamental atomic theory involving relativistic and quantum electro-dynamic effects in a strong field. Also, the huge potential energy of a HCI induces drastic reaction in the interaction with matter. This unique property of HCIs, coupled with the recent development of efficient ion sources, is opening the possibility to utilize them in new technologies in the field such as nano-fabrication, surface analysis, medical physics, and so on. Hence, this conference is recognized as a valuable gathering place for established practitioners and also for newcomers; we exchange information, we are introduced to the subject itself, and to unexpected interfaces with other fields. On 31 August, the day before the opening of HCI2008, we welcomed the delegates at the university's restaurant—and we were greeted with an unusually heavy summer shower! The conference then opened on the morning of 1 September. In the evening we invited the foreign delegates to the Tokyo-EBIT laboratory and entertained them with sushi and YEBISU beer at the lab (YEBISU is a popular brand of beer in Japan and also the nickname of the Tokyo-EBIT project, Young Electron Beam Ion Source Unit). Cans of YEBISU beer also helped us to make the poster sessions lively, on the evenings of 2 and 4 September. The best poster of each session was selected by the vote of International Advisory Board, and two young scientists were awarded the prizes. On the afternoon of 3 September, we took an excursion to Lake Yamanaka near Mount Fuji for a conference outing. The conference dinner was then held at a hotel alongside Lake Yamanaka from where we really enjoyed the view of Mount Fuji. In the summer it is quite rare to have clear weather, but a teru-teru bozu (a Japanese paper doll with a wish for good weather) placed on the top page of the conference WEB site brought us clear skies for the dinner. About 200 scientists from 22 countries registered for the HCI2008. The number of invited talks was 18 and the contributed papers 206. These proceedings contain 9 invited talks and 107 contributed articles. Following the previous conference, they are grouped into the five categories of: (1) Fundamental aspects, structure and spectroscopy; (2) Collisions with electrons, ions, atoms and molecules; (3) Interactions with clusters, surfaces and solids; (4) Interactions with photons, plasmas and strong field processes, and (5) Production, experimental developments and applications. We are happy that the conference was completely successful, and this success owes much to the sponsors. We acknowledge the support from the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS), The International Union of Pure and Applied Physics (IUPAP), Matsuo Foundation, Iwatani Naoji Foundation, CASIO Science Promotion Foundation, and The Society for Atomic Collision Research. The next International Conference on the Physics of Highly Charged Ions will be held in Shanghai under the organization of Professor Y Zou

REPORT FROM THE ORGANIZERS: The 25th International Conference on Low Temperature Physics  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The 25th International Conference on Low Temperature Physics (LT25) was hosted by the Kamerlingh Onnes Laboratorium of the Leiden Institute of Physics and held in the RAI Convention Center in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, 6-13 August 2008. It was the second time that the Kamerlingh Onnes Laboratory had the privilege of organizing an LT conference. In 1958, at LT6, 50 years of liquid helium temperatures were commemorated; in 2008 we celebrated the 100th anniversary of the remarkable achievements of Heike Kamerlingh Onnes and his collaborators in Leiden. In 1958 there were 323 participants and 145 papers appeared in the proceedings; in 2008 these numbers had increased to 1390 participants and 900 papers, of which eventually 849 were accepted. This large participation required adequate conference and housing facilities. These could not be found in Leiden, but were conveniently available in Amsterdam. The triennial International Low Temperature Conferences are organized under the auspices of the International Union of Pure and Applied Physics (IUPAP) through Commission C5 on Low Temperature Physics. It is the most important global meeting that brings together the international scientific community in the broad field of Low Temperature Physics. Because the meeting is held only every third year the 11 plenary and 22 half plenary talks (of 45 or 30 min.) generally provide an overview of important new discoveries over the last few years, whereas the 161 short oral presentations (20 min.) are mainly focused on very recent developments. Since the field is broad, embracing a large section of condensed matter physics, the program is divided into five parallel program lines: A. Quantum Gases, Fluids and Solids B. Superconductivity C. Quantum Phase Transitions and Magnetism D. Electronic Quantum Transport in Condensed Matter E. Cryogenic Techniques and Applications This distinction was used both to group the 1625 accepted abstracts, and the short-oral and poster presentations; the number of oral sessions per program line was made in proportion to the number of accepted abstracts per category (A: 323, B: 526, C: 404, D: 276, and E: 96, about the same distribution as at previous LT conferences, e.g. LT22 in Helsinki). Also the papers appearing in the on-line part of the proceedings are grouped according to this classification. From the 877 submitted papers 826 were accepted, 41 rejected, and 10 were withdrawn. In the 5 poster sessions altogether 1479 posters were presented (A: 311, B: 463, C: 370, D: 249 and E: 86). Two special evening sessions were organized to address (very) recent developments. In the first place there was a romp session about the surprising discovery of high temperature superconductivity in iron-based compounds with 7 rounds of about 5 short presentations concluded with 10 min. discussion each. In a parallel session the concern about the demand for and price of liquid helium was discussed in relation to future trends in cryocoolers which may considerably reduce the need for liquid helium. In an outreach evening session, open to the general public, we had two distinguished speakers: Dr Philppe Lebrun (CERN, Geneva), who talked about the cryotechnology of the Large Hadron Collider at CERN and Professor Allan Griffin (University of Toronto) about the intriguing history of superfluidity. The centenary of liquid helium and the birth of low temperature physics were celebrated at the conference excursion to Leiden on Sunday 10 August 2008. Lack of space forced us to limit the number of participants to 643, but many others went on their own initiative. They could attend 3 historical lectures in the former Kamerlingh Onnes Laboratory, and visit several museums where special expositions related to '100 years of liquid helium' were arranged. The conference dinner in the center of Amsterdam on Monday evening was attended the by 555 people. Traditionally, at the opening session of the LT conferences time is reserved for prize ceremonies.

16th international conference on the physics of highly charged ions  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

This volume contains the proceedings of the 16th International Conference on the Physics of Highly Charged Ions (HCI 2012) held at the Ruprecht-Karls University in Heidelberg, Germany, 2-7 September 2012 (figure 1). This conference has been part of a biannual conference series that was started in Stockholm in 1982 and, since then, has been organized at various places around the world, with recent venues in Belfast (UK, 2006), Tokyo (Japan, 2008) and Shanghai (China, 2010). The physics of highly charged ions (HCI) is a rapidly developing and attractive field of research with impact upon many other research disciplines. Apart from fundamental studies on the structure and dynamics of matter in extreme fields, or the search for physics beyond the standard model, detailed knowledge about the properties and behavior of HCI is crucial for other areas, from astro- and solar physics to hot plasma and fusion research to extreme ultra-violet and ion lithography, or even to medical research, to name just a few. In fusion research, for example, of whether tokamak, stellarator or confinement fusion facilities, most models and diagnostics deeply rely on the understanding of HCI and the (theoretical) prediction of accurate atomic data for these systems. In life science, moreover, ion therapy or the laser acceleration of ions and electrons may help save and improve the quality of life in the future. Many of these and further topics are addressed in these proceedings. After 30 years, the HCI conference series, and especially the meeting in Heidelberg, is appreciated much as a key forum for bringing together senior experts with students, young researchers and scientists from related disciplines who make use and give back impact upon the research with HCI. More than 250 scientists from 23 countries participated in HCI 2012 and presented the current status of the field. About one third of them were post-graduate students, showing that the field attracts many young and talented physicists. The conference was held in the Physics Lecture Hall at the New Campus of Heidelberg University. On the evening of 2 September, the day before the opening of HCI 2012, all participants were welcomed warmly at the foyer of this lecture hall, whose decorative glass front provides a view upon artificial ponds and water lilies at this time of the year. For many colleagues and delegates, this evening offered a hearty re-encounter with each other, along with wine and other beverages. The conference then opened on the morning of 3 September, and an exciting program was organized by the local committee with the help of the International Advisory Board, including 5 invited talks, 10 progress reports as well as 26 selected talks. In addition, more than 230 posters were presented in two sessions, with beer and brezels aside. On Tuesday evening, an exciting public lecture on Heavy ions in therapy and space was given by Marco Durante from the GSI Helmholtz Center and Technical University in Darmstadt. Moreover, many of the participants joined the guided tour through the old city of Heidelberg with its famous (ruins of the) castle, and several the Solar Boat Trip. On Thursday night, we all enjoyed the conference dinner with home-brewed beer and regional specialties at the 'Kulturbrauerei' in the historic center of Heidelberg. Finally, scientific tours were also organized to GSI Darmstadt and the Max-Planck Institute for Nuclear Physics in Heidelberg on the last day of the conference, and attracted much consideration. We here present the proceedings of this conference that contain a total of 104 contributions, including invited papers, progress reports and contributed papers. As previously, these papers are grouped into five categories. (1) Fundamental aspects, structure and spectroscopy. (2) Collisions with electrons, ions, atoms and molecules. (3) Interactions with clusters, surfaces and solids. (4) Interactions with photons, plasmas and strong field processes. (5) Production, experimental developments and applications.

EDITORIAL: The 20th European Sectional Conference on Atomic and Molecular Physics of Ionized Gases The 20th European Sectional Conference on Atomic and Molecular Physics of Ionized Gases  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

This special issue consists of papers that are associated with invited lectures, workshop papers and hot topic papers presented at the 20th European Sectional Conference on Atomic and Molecular Physics of Ionized Gases (ESCAMPIG XX). This conference was organized in Novi Sad (Serbia) from 13 to 17 July 2010 by the Institute of Physics of the University of Belgrade. It is important to note that this is not a conference 'proceedings'. Following the initial selection process by the International Scientific Committee, all papers were submitted to the journal by the authors and have been fully peer reviewed to the standard required for publication in Plasma Sources Science and Technology (PSST). The papers are based on presentations given at the conference but are intended to be specialized technical papers covering all or part of the topic presented by the author during the meeting. The ESCAMPIG conference is a regular biennial Europhysics Conference of the European Physical Society focusing on collisional and radiative aspects of atomic and molecular physics in partially ionized gases as well as on plasma-surface interaction. The conference focuses on low-temperature plasma sciences in general and includes the following topics: Atomic and molecular processes in plasmas Transport phenomena, particle velocity distribution function Physical basis of plasma chemistry Plasma surface interaction (boundary layers, sheath, surface processes) Plasma diagnostics Plasma and discharges theory and simulation Self-organization in plasmas, dusty plasmas Upper atmospheric plasmas and space plasmas Low-pressure plasma sources High-pressure plasma sources Plasmas and gas flows Laser-produced plasmas During ESCAMPIG XX special sessions were dedicated to workshops on: Atomic and molecular collision data for plasma modeling, organized by Professors Z Lj Petrovic and N Mason Plasmas in medicine, organized by Dr N Puac and Professor G Fridman. The conference topics were represented in the program by 16 invited lectures, 7 selected hot topics, and 191 poster presentations. The largest number of contributed papers was submitted in Topic 5: Plasma diagnostics (37). The workshop topics were addressed by 10 invited lectures, 5 oral presentations and 7 posters. A post-conference workshop with 5 invited lectures was organized, dealing with the data needs for modeling of plasma sources of light. ESCAMPIG XX was attended by 185 scientists from 31 countries. Of the participants, 30% were PhD students (55). The list includes scientists from the USA, Japan, Australia, Mexico and other non-European countries, which indicates the truly international status of the conference. We would like to thank the authors for their efforts in preparing stimulating lectures and interesting articles for the readers of PSST, and the scientific community dealing with ionized gases, plasma sources and atomic, molecular and chemical physics of low-temperature plasmas for continued interest in the field of ESCAMPIG. We would like to thank the organizers of all previous ESCAMPIG conferences for setting the standards for organization and, in particular, the organizers of ESCAMPIG XVIII and XIX for their direct help and insight. Finally the International Scientific Committee and its chairman in particular have worked hard to select the best possible program and to keep us in line with almost 40 years of tradition and standards of the conference. Most importantly this has been the 20th conference. The quality of new papers shows maturity and new vistas in the field that has produced so much fundamental understanding of complex, non-equilibrium, even nonlinear plasmas. At the same time the field has led to some of the key technologies of modern civilization and has shown that responsible science that pays attention to its societal benefits should have no fear for its future. All critical issues studied today were presented at the meeting and only a small part is represented here. For example, discharges in liquids or above liquids were covered by several lectures represented by two pa

Since the first IUPAP International Conference on Women in Physics (Paris, March 2002) and the Second Conference (Rio de Janeiro, May 2005), progress has continued in most countries and world regions to attract girls to physics and advance women into leadership roles, and many working groups have formed. The Third Conference (Seoul, October 2008), with 283 attendees from 57 countries, was dedicated to celebrating the physics achievements of women throughout the world, networking toward new international collaborations, building each participant's capacity for career success, and aiding the formation of active regional working groups to advance women in physics. Despite the progress, women remain a small minority of the physics community in most countries.

PREFACE: The Joint 16th Europhysics Conference on Atomic and Molecular Physics of Ionized Gases--5th International Conference on Reactive Plasmas  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The first joint meeting of the Europhysics Conference on Atomic and Molecular Physics of Ionized Gases (ESCAMPIG), the International Conference on Reactive Plasmas (ICRP) and the Symposium on Plasma Processing (SPP) was held in Grenoble, France between 14 and 18 July 2002. ESCAMPIG is an important biennial European event at which academics and industrialists working in low temperature plasma science meet. ICRP and SPP are Japanese triennial and annual meetings covering the entire field of reactive plasmas: generation, diagnostics and modelling of plasmas and their interaction with surfaces, and their applications. This ESCAMPIG 16th--ICRP 5th joint conference was organized under the sponsorship of the European Physical Society (EPS), the Japan Society of Applied Physics (JSAP), University Joseph Fourier (UJF) and Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS). The scientific scope of this joint conference was focused on both experimental and theoretical aspects of physics of ionized gases and on its industrial applications. It covered the following topics: bullet atomic and molecular processes in plasmas bullet particle energy distribution functions bullet discharge physics: sheathes, transport processes and modelling bullet plasma diagnostics bullet laser and particle beam assisted plasma processes bullet physical basis of plasma chemistry and plasma--surface interactions bullet production and control of reactive plasmas bullet etching, deposition and cleaning bullet environmental and other applications. The ESCAMPIG 16th--ICRP 5th joint conference was attended by 379 scientists from 26 countries. 22 invited papers were presented. Most of these papers are published in this special issue. In addition, 16 contributed papers were selected by the joint International Scientific Committee (ISC) for oral presentation as a `hot topic'. Beside this, two workshops were held on `Recent developments in plasma monitoring for microelectronics', organized by Professor H Sugai, and `High pressure non-equilibrium plasmas and their applications', organized by Professors J-P Boeuf and H Fujiyama, and a total of 10 invited talks were given. The 337 contributed papers were presented in four poster sessions. The abstracts of all oral and poster contributions were published in two volumes of the proceedings of the conference. I would like to thank the members of the ISC of ICRP and ESCAMPIG, and particularly their respective chairs, Professors Hideo Sugai and Gerrit Kroesen, as well as the members of the Local Organizing Committee for their indispensable contributions for the success of this joint meeting. Thanks are also due to the sponsors of the conference, particularly JSAP, UJF, CNRS and the City of Grenoble. We are particularly grateful to the Editor-in-Chief of {\\it Plasma Sources Science and Technology}, Professor Noah Hershkowitz, for the opportunity to publish the invited papers in this special issue, and so bring the joint ESCAMPIG 16th--ICRP 5th meeting to a wider audience.

PREFACE: International Conference on Topics in Astroparticle and Underground Physics (TAUP 2011)  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The 12th edition of the International Conference on Topics in Astroparticle and Underground Physics (TAUP 2011) was held 5-9 September 2011 in Munich (and for the first time in Germany). It was organized by the Max Planck Institute for Physics (MPP), the Technical University Munich (TUM) and the Cluster of Excellence 'Origin and Structure of the Universe'. The conference was held in the 'Künstlerhaus', a traditional downtown location for artistic festivities. The meeting attracted 317 participants (61 of which were women) from 29 countries, see figure below. The topics covered by the meeting were Cosmology and particle physics, Dark matter and its detection, Neutrino physics and astrophysics, Gravitational waves and High-energy astrophysics and cosmic rays, and the various interfaces between these areas. The scientific sessions consisted of five mornings of plenary talks, four afternoons of parallel sessions, and an evening poster session. The co-founder of the conference series, Alessandro Bottino, has decided to retire from the position of chairman of the TAUP Steering Committee after the completion of TAUP 2011. On behalf of all followers of this series, we thank him for having started these inspiring events and his many years of dedicated service. We thank all speakers, conveners and participants as well as the members of the organizing, steering and international advisory committee for making this a successful and memorable meeting.

PREFACE: The 19th European Sectional Conference on Atomic and Molecular Physics of Ionized Gases Preface: The 19th European Sectional Conference on Atomic and Molecular Physics of Ionized Gases  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The 19th Europhysics Sectional Conference on the Atomic and Molecular Physics of Ionized Gases (ESCAMPIG-2008) took place in Granada (Spain) from 15 to 19 July 2008. The conference was mainly organized by the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC), with the collaboration and support of the University of Córdoba (UCO) and the Research Center for Energy, Environment and Technology (CIEMAT). It is already 35 years since the first ESCAMPIG in 1973. The first editions of ESCAMPIG were in consecutive years (1973 and 1974) but later on it became a biennial conference of the European Physical Society (EPS) initially focusing on the collisional and radiative atomic and molecular processes in low temperature plasmas. The successive ESCAMPIGs took place in Bratislava in 1976 (3rd), Essen in 1978 (4th), Dubrovnik in 1980 (5th) and so on until the last one organized in Granada in 2008 (19th), the first ESCAMPIG in Spain. A number of changes have taken place in the Granada edition of ESCAMPIG. First, the previous six topics that have remained unchanged for almost two decades (since 1990) have now been updated to become twelve new topics which, in the opinion of the International Scientific Committee (ISC), will enhance the opportunity for discussions and communication of new findings and developments in the field of low temperature plasmas. The new list of topics for ESCAMPIG is: • Atomic and molecular processes in plasmas • Transport phenomena, particle velocity distribution function • Physical basis of plasma chemistry • Plasma surface interaction (boundary layers, sheath, surface processes) • Plasma diagnostics • Plasma and dicharges theory and simulation • Self-organization in plasmas, dusty plasmas • Upper atmospheric plasmas and space plasmas • Low pressure plasma sources • High pressure plasma sources • Plasmas and gas flows • Laser produced plasmas Secondly, a new prize has been created, the `William Crookes' prize in Plasma Physics to be awarded biennially to a mid-career (10 to 20 years after PhD) researcher who has been judged to have made major contributions in one or more of the areas covered by ESCAMPIG. The prize was co-sponsored by the ESCAMPIG-2008 local committee, the European Physical Society (EPS) and Plasma Sources Science and Technology. The award was 1,000 Euros and a diploma along with hotel accommodation and waived fees to attend ESCAMPIG-2008 where the award was presented. The first `William Crookes' prize was awarded to Professor Dr Richard Van de Sanden from the Eindhoven University of Technology `for his major contributions to fundamental plasma-wall interaction studies and their use in plasma enhanced deposition and etching'. More than 290 scientists from 35 countries around the world attended ESCAMPIG-2008 in Granada. Also remarkable is the important number of registered students (87) that participated in the conference. The total number of abstracts submitted was over 330 with more than 300 poster presentations in the three scheduled poster sessions. The oral sessions involved 16 invited lectures and eight ISC selected hot topical presentations. In addition, two afternoon special sessions of ESCAMPIG-2008 were devoted to two workshops on: • Sprite chemistry and their impact in the upper atmosphere of the Earth, organized by Dr T Neubert and Dr F J Gordillo-Vazquez • Diagnostics of active species in plasma deposition of thin films, organized by Dr F L Tabarés Following a tradition started in previous ESCAMPIG editions, a special issue of {\\it Plasma Sources Science and Technology} (PSST) is published including peer-reviewed papers based on the invited lectures, hot topic presentations and workshop contributions. Many of the authors agreed to prepare and submit within deadline suitable articles with original results or in the form of reviews and critical overviews of their own published results. I would like to thank all the speakers for their co-operation and efforts in preparing interesting lectures and for preparing papers for the special issue of PSST devoted to ESCAMPI

CONFERENCE REPORT: Report on the 6th European Fusion Physics Workshop  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The 6th European Fusion Physics Workshop took place in December 1998 at Cadarache in France. It was hosted by the Association CEA-Euratom, Cadarache and was sponsored by the European Commission. Within an overall theme of plasma edge physics and its relation to core plasma behaviour, four topics of importance to the future development of magnetically confined plasmas were discussed in detail: the role of turbulence in edge and scrape-off layer physics, the relation between edge physics and core confinement, the influence of divertor geometry on plasma behaviour and transient and steady-state effects in plasma-wall interactions. In addition, an extended review of JET experiments on advanced modes of operation was presented. The main issues discussed in each session and the areas identified as requiring further study are summarized here.

Semiconductor heterojunctions at the Conference on the Physics and Chemistry of Semiconductor Interfaces: A device physicist`s perspective  

SciTech Connect

After a very slow start, heterojunctions have emerged as one of the central topics of the Conference on the Physics and Chemistry of Semiconductor Interfaces. The presentation describes this emergence, starting from such items as the electron affinity rule of conduction band offsets, Dingle`s first determination of the GaAs-(Al,Ga)As band lineups, and the first lineup theories. Some of the blind alleys in this development (85:15 Rule, Common-Anion Rule, and others) are retold by one of the participants. The treatment then turns to a few of the most recent developments, such as the emerging role of ab initio computations as a quasiexperimental tool, plus a few developments this writer finds worth speculating about. The treatment is from the perspective of a device physicist, rather than a surface scientist, and some thoughts are offered on why there is not more commonality between heterojunctions and Schottky barriers. 28 refs., 3 figs.

The 4th International Conference on Calorimetry in High Energy Physics, and visit LEP detectors and the European CP-Violation Experiment at CERN  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The scientific program for the Elba conference was aimed at outlining the state of the art in all aspects of calorimetry applied to high energy physics. A number of lectures were presented at the Elba conference covering the general topics of calorimetry for large experiments, sampling and precision calorimetry, calorimetry with crystals, computer simulations, electronics, and radiation damage of scintillating fibers and materials. There were also reports on the expected performance of particular types of calorimeters in ongoing and future experiments. The Central European Laboratory for Particle Physics Research (CERN) has been engaged in colliding beams, as well as fixed target experiments for a number of years. Some of the exceptional results from the LEP detectors is a testament to the efficient planning and details necessary for today's larger and more complex detectors. Preparation for the next run with these detectors and tests of new fixed target detectors were observed during this visit. In addition, I discussed plans for the operation and use of the CERN (SPS) test beams during the CY-1994.

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

This special issue of Classical and Quantum Gravity contains articles submitted in relation to the 'Theory Meets Data Analysis at Comparable and Extreme Mass Ratios' conference held at the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics, Waterloo, Canada, 20-26 June 2010. This conference, organized by S Fairhurst, G Gonzalez, L Lehner, Y Liu, H Pfeiffer, and E Poisson brought together researchers from three gravitational wave communities: experiment, theory and data analysis, who discussed the latest advances and challenges for detecting and exploiting gravitational waves. Approximately 60 talks spread over one week, together with many lively discussions provided an excellent atmosphere for debate. With so much packed in over seven days there were too many highlights to list specifics here. However, several common themes could be clearly discerned: the tremendous progress achieved in the detector level; the understanding of key comparable-mass systems and the data analysis techniques required for searching for their signals; the significant progress achieved in obtaining predictions in extreme mass ratio scenarios and the understanding of remaining challenges; as well as several new efforts towards making multi-messenger astronomy a reality. This issue contains research articles presented at this conference which, together with online talks (all of which can be found at pirsa.org/C10015), illustrate the level of maturity the field has reached. Many challenges still remain and the communities involved are actively working towards addressing them.

FOREWORD: Nuclear Physics in Astrophysics V  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The fifth edition of the bi-annual 'Nuclear Physics in Astrophysics (NPA)' conference series was held in Eilat, Israel on April 3-8, 2011. This Conference is also designated as the 24th Nuclear Physics Divisional Conference of the EPS. The main purpose of this conference, as that of the four previous ones in this series, is to deal with those aspects of nuclear physics that are directly related to astrophysics. The concept of such a meeting was conceived by the Nuclear Physics Board of the European Physical Society in 1998. At that time, the idea of such a conference was quite new and it was decided that this meeting would be sponsored by the EPS. The first meeting, in January 2001, was planned and organized in Eilat, Israel. Due to international circumstances the conference was moved to Debrecen, Hungary. Subsequent conferences were held in Debrecen again, in Dresden, Germany, and in Frascati, Italy (moved from Gran Sasso due to the tragic earthquake that hit the L'Aquila region). After 10 years the conference finally returned to Eilat, the originally envisioned site. Eilat is a resort town located on the shore of the Gulf of Eilat, which connects Israel to the Red Sea and further south to the Indian Ocean. It commands spectacular views of the desert and mountains, offering unique touristic attractions. The local scientific backdrop of the conference is the fact that the Israeli scientific scene exhibits a wide variety of research activities in many areas of nuclear physics and astrophysics. A new accelerator, SARAF at Soreq Nuclear Research Center is presently undergoing final acceptance tests. SARAF will serve as a platform for production of radioactive ion beams and nuclear-astrophysics research in Israel. The meeting in Eilat was organized by four Israeli scientific institutions, Hebrew University, Soreq Nuclear Research Center, Tel Aviv University and the Weizmann Institute of Science. The welcome reception and lectures were held at the King Solomon hotel and the conference dinner banquet at the Dan hotel. An excursion to the 'Red Canyon' in the Eilat Mountains on Wednesday afternoon was one of the social highlights of the conference. A total number of 140 scientists attended NPA5 and about 30 accompanying persons; about 25% of these were young participants (less than 36 years old). 23 participants were from Israel, and 27 were from outside of Europe (including two from Africa). The subjects covered at the conference in Eilat concentrated mainly on the spirit of the original idea - to probe experimental and theoretical activity in nuclear structure and reactions that is directly related to the physics of the Universe. There were also sessions of general interest in astrophysics, as well as a poster session on Tuesday evening featuring 40 posters. The topics included: Nuclear Structure - Theory and Experiment Big-Bang Nucleosynthesis and Formation of First Stars Stellar Reactions and Solar Neutrinos Explosive Nucleosynthesis, Radioactive Beams and Exotic Nuclei-New Facilities and Future Possibilities for Astrophysics Neutrino Physics - the Low and High-Energy Frontiers Rare events, Dark Matter, Double beta-decay, Symmetries The conference started with an excellent exposé of the progress made in the discovery of super-heavy elements and the study of their properties. The progress in this field is enormous, and this subject should be communicated to more general audiences. The role of the nuclear equation of state and of the precise determination of nuclear masses in nucleosynthesis was emphasized in several talks. The role of neutrinos in astrophysics was discussed extensively in several sessions. One of the highlights of this was the presentation about the IceCube and DeepCore detectors operating deep in the Antarctic ice. These facilities are able to detect cosmogenic neutrinos in a wide energy range, from 10 GeV to 1010 GeV. The subject of solar neutrinos was discussed in a number of talks. Topics related to properties of neutrinos, such as double-beta decay and neutrino mixing were well represented at the confer

BEAUTY'99 Conference Summary  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Investigations of B hadrons are expected to break new ground in measuring CP-violation effects. This series of BEAUTY conferences, originating from the 1993 conference in Liblice, has contributed significantly in developing ideas of CP-violation measurements using B hadrons and formulating and comparing critically the B-physics experiments. In the '99 conference in Bled we saw the ripening of the field and the first fruit emerging - Tevatron have produced beautiful B-physics results and more are expected to come with the next run, while the B-physics experiments at DESY, SLAC and KEK are starting their operation. The longer-term projects at LHC and Tevatron have taken their shape and detailed prototyping work is going on. Meanwhile, on the phenomenological side, there has been impressive theoretical progress in understanding deeper the `standard' measurements and proposing new signatures. In this summary, I will highlight the status of the field as presented in the conference, concentrating on signatures, experiments and R&D programmes.

PREFACE: Quark Matter 2006 Conference  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The Quark Matter 2006 conference was held on 14 20 November 2006 at the Shanghai Science Hall of the Shanghai Association of Sciences and Technology in Shanghai, China. It was the 19th International Conference on Ultra-Relativistic Nucleus Nucleus Collisions. The conference was organized jointly by SINAP (Shanghai Institute of Applied Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS)) and CCNU (Central China Normal University, Wuhan). Over 600 scientists from 32 countries in five continents attended the conference. This is the first time that China has hosted such a premier conference in the field of relativistic heavy-ion collisions, an important event for the Chinese high energy nuclear physics community. About one half of the conference participants are junior scientists—a clear indication of the vigor and momentum for this field, in search of the fundamental nature of the nuclear matter at extreme conditions. Professor T D Lee, honorary chair of the conference and one of the founders of the quark matter research, delivered an opening address with his profound and philosophical remarks on the recent discovery of the nature of strongly-interacting quark-gluon-plasma (sQGP). Professor Hongjie Xu, director of SINAP, gave a welcome address to all participants on behalf of the two hosting institutions. Dr Peiwen Ji, deputy director of the Mathematics and Physics Division of the Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC), also addressed the conference participants and congratulated them on the opening of the conference. Professor Mianheng Jiang, vice president of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), gave a concise introduction about the CAS as the premier research institution in China. He highlighted continued efforts at CAS to foster international collaborations between China and other nations. The Quark Matter 2006 conference is an example of such a successful collaboration between high energy nuclear physicists in China and other nations all over the world. The scientific program of the conference began with an overview of high energy nuclear physics in China by Professor Wenqing Shen, vice president of the National Natural Science Foundation of China. Professor Shen highlighted many contributions made by the Chinese scientists in both theory and experiment. Dr Nick Samios, former director of Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL), gave a vivid account of the early years of RHIC and recent accomplishments. Highlights of the conference include new results from RHIC at BNL and SPS (Super Proton Synchrotron) at CERN (European Organization for Nuclear Research). Many experimental results reported at the conference support the notion that the quark-gluon matter at RHIC behaves like a perfect liquid with minimum viscosity to entropy ratio. There were 15 plenary sessions which covered 54 plenary talks, 12 parallel sessions and 1 poster session. A total of 320 abstracts were submitted to the conference out of which 124 were selected for oral presentation and the rest were assigned to the poster session. Talks and posters in the conference covered a broad range of experimental and theoretical progress in ultra-relativistic heavy-ion collisions, which includes new evidence of sQGP, jet quenching and heavy quark energy loss, heavy-ion collision phenomenology, quantum field theory at finite temperature and/or density, and relevant areas of astrophysics and plasma physics. The Quark Matter 2006 conference coincided with the 80th birthday of Professor T D Lee. A special reception was held in the banquet hall of the Shanghai Grand Theatre to celebrate Professor Lee's birthday and to honor his great contributions to physics, in particular, to the development of high energy nuclear physics research in China. We would like to thank the members of the International Advisory Committee for providing valuable advice on a variety of matters, from the general structure of the conference to the selection of the plenary speakers and selection of abstracts for oral presentations. Professors T Hemmick, H Satz, D T Son and N Xu gave excellent pedagogical

MESON2000 Conference Summary  

SciTech Connect

This short contribution is a lite MESON2000 conference summary. As appropriate for the 600th anniversary of the Jagellonian University, it begins with a brief summary of the last 600 years of European history and its place in hadron physics. Next a ''physicist chirality'' order parameter PC is introduced. When applied to MESON2000 plenary speakers this order parameter illustrates the separation of hadron physicists into disjoint communities. The individual plenary talks in MESON2000 are next sorted according to the subconference associated with each of the 36 plenary speakers. Finally, I conclude with a previously unreported Feynman story regarding the use of models in hadron physics.

The 2009 National Environmental Public Health Conference: one model for planning green and healthy conferences.  

PubMed

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's National Center for Environmental Health and the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry committed to making their 2009 National Environmental Public Health Conference a model for green and healthy conferences. The conference included increased opportunities for physical activity, both as part of conference events and for transportation to the conference. In addition, conference meals were healthy and sustainably sourced. The conference also implemented intuitive, accessible recycling; online scheduling and evaluation to minimize hard-copy materials; and the purchase of carbon offsets to reduce the unwanted environmental impact of the conference. Public health professionals have an opportunity and obligation to support healthy behaviors at their events and to serve as leaders in this area. Facilitating healthy and sustainable choices is in alignment with goals for both public health and broader social issues-such as environmental quality-that have a direct bearing on public health.

United Nations Diplomatic Conferences  

NSDL National Science Digital Library

The United Nations has been involved with eight significant diplomatic conferences since their creation in 1945. Diplomatic conferences of this type serve as the traditional method for the negotiation of treaties, and there were a number of notable examples of such conferences decades before the United Nations, including the Hague Conferences of 1899 and 1907. Diplomatic conferences are less frequent occurrences these days, but they remain important when multilateral treaties need to be negotiated and adopted. On this site, visitors can look over the official records of a series of diplomatic conferences convened by the United Nations. The conferences included here include the 1963 Conference on Consular References and the 1983 Conference on Succession of States in Respect of State Property, Archives and Debts. Legal scholars and others will find this collection most useful, and they may wish to pass this link along to colleagues.

In 2002, the American Physical Society (APS) organized and held the first topical conference in Boston, MA, as a way of informing physicists, particularly those just entering the field, of opportunities emerging at the interface of physics and biology. Because of the tremendous success of the first conference, it was decided to organize a second conference, similar in nature and focus, but with different presentation topic areas. Again the intended audience would be graduate students and postdocs considering applying methods of physics to biological research, and those who advise others on such opportunities.

World Conference against Racism  

NSDL National Science Digital Library

The eight-day World Conference against Racism is drawing to a close today, and while some strides have been made in resolving the differences that have marked this as a contentious gathering, the conference seems to have proven, above anything else, that the issues that divide the world can not be easily addressed. Much of the conference has been dominated by two issues: the language equating Zionism and racism in the draft declaration and the desire on the part of some African states for an formal apology and reparations for slavery. Israel and the United States left the conference earlier in the week in protest over the former issue.

Conference scene: 2nd cancer epigenetics conference.  

PubMed

The GTC Cancer Summit: Novel Approaches to Drug Discovery was divided into two parallel tracks: the 2nd Cancer Epigenetics Conference, and the Protein Kinases and Drug Design Conference. The 2nd Cancer Epigenetics Conference focused on exciting changes in drug discovery that include an unprecedented private and public collaboration on drug discovery in epigenetics through the Structural Genomics Consortium (SGC), which has led to several major breakthroughs including: the development of small-molecule inhibitors that interfere with protein interactions, especially bromodomain-containing protein acetylation readers; the indirect but successful targeting of the elusive MYC oncogene; and the identification of epigenetic drugs that are disease-specific. Also reported were the development of clinically useful DNA methylation assays; cell, peptide and protein arrays for testing antibody- and protein-binding specificity; and tools for chromatin capture and DNA modification analysis. Several groups reported on the lack of specificity of some commercial, but unnamed, antibodies used for epigenetic studies. PMID:23566090

1985 oil spill conference  

SciTech Connect

This 1985 Oil Spill Conference, our ninth biennial meeting, presents another unique opportunity fo industry, government, and academic representatives to meet and exchange ideas to enhance our knowledge and understanding of the prevention, behavior, control, and cleanup of oil spills. Growing international and domestic participation, and the continued worldwide use of the Proceedings of past oil spill conferences as valuable reference sources affirms the importance and quality of these conferences. It is my firm belief, furthermore, that the conferences have contributed substantially to the reduction in the number of marine oil spills, and to our increased cleanup capabilities. The sponsoring organizations--the United States Coast Guard, the American Petroleum Institute, and the United States Environmental Protection Agency--have combined their efforts to provide a program of timely technical content which affords the opportunity to review the state-of-the-art accomplishments since our last conference in 1983. Finally, I hope that the knowledge and associations developed at this conference will influence your decision to participate in the 1987 Oil Spill Conference, to be held in Baltimore, Maryland.

    The 2011 Aspen Winter Conference on Particle Physics was held at the Aspen Center for Physics from February 12 to February 18, 2011. Ninety-four participants from ten countries, and several universities and national labs attended the workshop titled, ?New Data From the Energy Frontier.? There were 54 formal talks, and a considerable number of informal discussions held during the week. The week?s events included a public lecture (?The Hunt for the Elusive Higgs Boson? given by Ben Kilminster from Ohio State University) and attended by 119 members of the public, and a physics caf? geared for high schoolers that is a discussion with physicists. The 2011 Aspen Winter Conference on Astroparticle physics held at the Aspen Center for Physics was ?Indirect and Direct Detection of Dark Matter.? It was held from February 6 to February 12, 2011. The 70 participants came from 7 countries and attended 53 talks over five days. Late mornings through the afternoon are reserved for informal discussions. In feedback received from participants, it is often these unplanned chats that produce the most excitement due to working through problems with fellow physicists from other institutions and countries or due to incipient collaborations. In addition, Blas Cabrera of Stanford University gave a public lecture titled ?What Makes Up Dark Matter.? There were 183 members of the general public in attendance. Before the lecture, 45 people attended the physics caf? to discuss dark matter. This report provides the attendee lists, programs, and announcement posters for each event.

    In most countries the number of girls studying physics, as well female physicists in academic positions, is still low. Active recruitment at all levels is essential to change this situation. In some countries a large proportion of students are female, but career progression is difficult. Highlighting the broad spectrum of career opportunities for those with physics qualifications is a major approach in attracting girls to physics. This paper presents findings, examples of best practices, and recommendations resulting from the workshop, Attracting Girls to Physics, organized as part of the Third IUPAP International Conference on Women in Physics, Seoul, 2008.

    PREFACE: SQM2007 International Conference on Strangeness in Quark Matter  

    NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

    The International Conference on `Strangeness in Quark Matter' (SQM) was held from 24-29 June 2007 at the Congress Hall of the city cultural centre in the charming mediaeval town of Levo?a in north-eastern Slovakia. The Institute of Experimental Physics of the Slovak Academy of Science and the Faculty of Science of the P J Šafárik University in Košice shared the duties of main organizers of the conference. SQM2007 was attended by more than 100 participants from about 20 countries. The natural beauty and the rich cultural and historical monuments of the surrounding Spiš (Scepusium) region created an inspiring setting for the scientific, social and cultural framework of the conference. Continuing the trend started at the SQM2006 conference, heavy flavour physics in heavy-ion collisions was a topic given equal importance in the SQM2007 programme alongside strange quark physics. The Symposium for Students, from Students, organized by Christian Klein-Boesing and Boris Tomášik on the basis of the contributed abstracts, was again an integral and successful part of the conference. The jury, drawn from the organizers, awarded William A Horowitz (Columbia University) the title of best student contribution. The good news is that many students and younger researchers attended the conference. This could not have happened without generous support from our sponsors whom we would like to thank for valuable financial support: CERN, Journal of Physics G, the Prešov self-governing region authorities and the Slovak Physical Society. The kind assistance of the mayor of the town of Levo?a is also warmly acknowledged. We would like to extend our gratitude to our colleagues and students from the organizing institutions for their diligent work prior to and during the conference, which ensured that everything worked smoothly. Our special thanks go to our secretaries, Adri Chomi?ová and Mery Šemš'aková, as well as to the management of the SATEL Hotel in Levo?a for their highly professional work in preparing and running the conference. We thank all the speakers and session chairpersons for their active contribution to the inspiring scientific atmosphere at the conference. We also thank Emanuele Quercigh for an enlightening after-dinner speech. Finally, it is our pleasure to express thanks to all members of the SQM International Advisory Committee for their valuable input to the scientific programme and conference arrangement.

    I will examine the importance of the 1957 Chapel Hill Conference on the Role of Gravitation in Physics, placing it in the context of developments in the history of general relativity. Organized by C'ecile DeWitt-Morette and Bryce DeWitt, the conference attracted notable physicists representing a wide range of backgrounds---from quantum physicists to cosmologists. I will explore how the conference helped inspire growing interest in the subjects of general relativity and quantum gravity.

    Rural Energy Conference Project  

    SciTech Connect

    Alaska remains, even at the beginning of the 21st century, a place with many widely scattered, small, remote communities, well beyond the end of both the road system and the power grid. These communities have the highest energy costs of any place in the United States, despite the best efforts of the utilities that service them. This is due to the widespread dependence on diesel electric generators, which require small capital investments, but recent increases in crude oil prices have resulted in dramatic increases in the cost of power. In the enabling legislation for the Arctic Energy Office in 2001, specific inclusion was made for the study of ways of reducing the cost of electrical power in these remote communities. As part of this mandate, the University of Alaska has, in conjunction with the US Department of Energy, the Denali Commission and the Alaska Energy Authority, organized a series of rural energy conferences, held approximately every 18 months. The goal of these meeting was to bring together rural utility operators, rural community leaders, government agency representatives, equipment suppliers, and researchers from universities and national laboratories to discuss the current state of the art in rural power generation, to discuss current projects, including successes as well as near successes. Many of the conference presenters were from industry and not accustomed to writing technical papers, so the typical method of organizing a conference by requesting abstracts and publishing proceedings was not considered viable. Instead, the organizing committee solicited presentations from appropriate individuals, and requested that (if they were comfortable with computers) prepare Power point presentations that were collected and posted on the web. This has become a repository of many presentations, and may be the best single source of information about current projects in the state of Alaska.

    The principal meeting attended during this trip was the Japan International Tribology Conference Nagoya 1990. The conference encompassed a wide range of topics, including the tribology of ceramics, the tribology in high-performance automobiles, and many aspects of lubrication technology. Associated forums were also held on the tribology of advanced ceramics, on solid lubrication, and on automotive lubricants. Presentations made during the latter forum discussed anticipated trends in engine development and anticipated improvements in lubricants required for the next generation of engines. In addition to meetings, site visits were made to five industrial organizations to discuss ceramic tribology. Nippon Steel Corporation and Toshiba Corporation are both very active in the ceramic area, Nippon Steel from their interest in research on new materials and Toshiba from both an interest in new materials and in support of their work in electronic devices. Two engine manufacturers were also visited, Toyota Motor Corporation, and Nissan Motor Co., Ltd. These companies were somewhat reserved in their discussion of progress in the utilization of ceramics in automobile engines.

    An International Perspective on Women in Physics  

    NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

    The 1^st International Union of Pure and Applied Physics (IUPAP) Conference on Women in Physics, held in 2002 in Paris, France, highlighted a number of issues facing women physicists around the world. A second conference was held in May 2005 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, with the goal of examining the progress made since the last conference and also to provide an opportunity for the delegates to present their research, both physics research and gender-related research, and to make contacts for future collaborations. The conference was attended by 145 delegates from 42 countries, including a very diverse delegation of 22 women and men from the U.S. The conference was organized by the Working Group on Women in Physics of IUPAP, which is charged with making recommendations to IUPAP on how to attract, retain, and increase the participation of women in physics at all levels. The conference included a round table discussion on ``Research Funding and Women in Physics,'' several plenary talks, a poster session on women in physics in each country, a poster session on research by individual delegates, and discussion groups on six topics including attracting girls into physics, launching a successful career, getting women into leadership, improving the institutional climate, learning from regional differences, and balancing family and career. Conference proceedings have been published that include research abstracts, summaries from the discussion groups, articles on the plenary talks, and papers from each country on the status of women in physics in their country (proceedings can be found at http://proceedings.aip.org/proceedings/confproceed/795.jsp). This talk will discuss the U. S. delegation and their country paper on the situation for women in physics in the U.S. as well as highlights from the information presented by the delegates from other nations. The outcomes of the 2002 conference will be described briefly and then the signs of progress noted in 2005 will be summarized.

    PREFACE: 13th International Conference on Electrostatics  

    NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

    Electrostatics 2011 was held in the city of Bangor which is located in North West Wales in an area of outstanding natural beauty close to the Snowdonia mountain range and bordering the Irish Sea. The history of the area goes back into the mists of times, but a continuous technological thread can be traced from the stone- and bronze-age craftsmen, who inhabited the area several thousand years ago, via the civil engineering and fortifications of the Romans and Edward I of England, through Marconi's long-wave trans-Atlantic transmitter near Caernarfon to the conference host. The School of Electronic Engineering at Bangor University has contributed much to the discipline of Electrostatics not only in teaching and research but also in supporting industry. It was a great pleasure for me, therefore, to have the pleasure of welcoming the world's experts in Electrostatics to Bangor in April 2011. In my preface to the Proceedings of Electrostatics 1999, I reported that almost 90 papers were presented. Interestingly, a similar number were presented in 2011 testifying to the importance and endurance of the subject. The all-embracing nature of electrostatics is captured in the pictorial depiction used for the conference logo: a hand-held plasma ball with its close link to gaseous discharges and the superimposed Antarctic aurora highlighting the featured conference themes of atmospheric, planetary and environmental electrostatics. Leading these themes were three invited contributions, the first by Giles Harrison who delivered the Bill Bright Memorial Lecture 'Fair weather atmospheric electricity', Carlos Calle on 'The electrostatic environments of Mars and the Moon' and Istvan Berta on 'Lightning protection - challenges, solutions and questionable steps in the 21st century'. Leading other key sessions were invited papers by Atsushi Ohsawa on 'Statistical analysis of fires and explosions attributed to static electricity over the last 50 years in Japanese industry' and Antonio Ramos on 'Electrohydrodynamic pumping in microsystems'. Of the papers submitted for publication 69 passed through the thorough review process and I take this opportunity to warmly thank the reviewers for their constructive criticism and rapid turnaround which has allowed the Proceedings to be delivered to the publisher on time. It is a pleasure also to thank members of the International Advisory Panel, and the Organizing and Programme Committees for their guidance and suggestions and especially Claire Garland and her team at the Institute of Physics for their support, all of which ensured a successful and enjoyable conference. Special thanks are due to Jeremy Smallwood for organising the pre-conference workshop, to Tom Jones, Martin Glor and Dave Swenson for their highly informative and educational contributions at the workshop, to CST for organising the simulation workshop, and to CST and JCI Chilworth for their much appreciated sponsorship of the conference. I am sure you will enjoy reading this record of Electrostatics 2011, covering as it does the wide range of subjects upon which static electricity impinges. Especially important is the development of electrostatic-based methods for reducing atmospheric pollution. In this context it is interesting to see how Masuda's work on the surface-discharge-based Boxer charger, first reported over 30 years ago, has now developed into dielectric barrier discharge (DBD) systems for the removal of noxious molecules from industrial and vehicle exhaust gases. Thanks to our hard working conference chairman, Paul Holdstock, the conference retained its now well-established reputation for providing a friendly, sociable atmosphere for discussing the newest developments in this important scientific area. Finally, my sincere thanks go to all the presenters and to all those who attended and contributed to another successful conference. Professor D. Martin TaylorProceedings EditorBangor, May 2011

    Summary of 1990 Code Conference  

    SciTech Connect

    The Conference on Codes and the Linear Accelerator Community was held in Los Alamos in January 1990, and had approximately 100 participants. This conference was the second in a series which has as its goal the exchange of information about codes and code practices among those writing and actually using these codes for the design and analysis of linear accelerators and their components. The first conference was held in San Diego in January 1988, and concentrated on beam dynamics codes and Maxwell solvers. This most recent conference concentrated on 3-D codes and techniques to handle the large amounts of data required for three-dimensional problems. In addition to descriptions of codes, their algorithms and implementations, there were a number of paper describing the use of many of the codes. Proceedings of both these conferences are available. 3 refs., 2 tabs.

    FUSE Conference Summary  

    NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

    In this conference summary, it is appropriate to reflect on the scientific accomplishments of FUSE during its first five years of operations, in comparison with what the mission was ``sold to do". Many of its major results were anticipated in the late 1980s: spectroscopic studies of D/H, O VI, H2 and observations of hot stars, cool stars, quasars, and interstellar/intergalactic gas. However, owing to its 104-fold increase in sensitivity over the Copernicus mission, FUSE brought several pleasant surprises -- the detection of vast O VI reservoirs in the Galactic halo and intergalactic medium, planetary transits, and infalling comets in young stellar disks. Serendipity nearly always accompanies major increases in observing capability, a fact that should be remembered in strategic planning for the next generation of astronomical missions.

    SETI conference at Tallinn  

    NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

    The search for extraterrestrial intelligence (SETI) was the subject of the Dec. 1981 conference in Tallinn, U.S.S.R., with the Soviet papers, which constituted about 80 percent of the total, of rather low quality. A large number dealt with paleocontact, or establishing the long-past presence of extraterrestrials through archeological or astronomical means. There was insufficient discussion of which bands of electromagnetic radiation are optimum for SETI. The need to search for extrasolar planets was emphasized, noting recent SETI observations at Ohio State University and a NASA plan which would survey both nearby stars and the entire sky in the next few years. The key is a proposed spectrum analyzer that can detect and analyze signals from eight million frequency channels at once, each of which covers a very narrow bandwidth of typically 1-32 Hz.

    PREFACE: Nanoscale Devices and System Integration Conference (NDSI-2004)  

    NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

    The inaugural conference on Nanoscale Devices and System Integration (NDSI-2004) was held in Miami, Florida, 15-19 February, 2004. The focus of the conference was `real-life' devices and systems that have recently emerged as a result of various nanotechnology initiatives in chemistry and chemical engineering, physics, electrical engineering, materials science and engineering, biomedical engineering, computer science, robotics, and environmental science. The conference had a single session all-invited speaker format, with the presenters making the `Who's Who in Nanotechnology' list. Contributed work was showcased at a special poster session. The conference, sponsored by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) and the US Air Force, and endorsed by Materials Research Society (MRS), drew more than 160 participants from fourteen countries. To strengthen the connection between fundamental research and `real-life' applications, the conference featured a large number of presenters from both academia and industry. Among the participating companies were NEC, IBM, Toshiba, AMD, Samsung, Seagate, and Veeco. Nanotechnology has triggered a new wave of research collaborations between researchers from academia and industry with a broad range of specializations. Such a global approach has resulted in a number of breakthrough accomplishments. One of the main goals of this conference was to identify these accomplishments and put the novel technology initiatives and the emerging research teams on the map. Among the key nanotechnology applications demonstrated at NDSI-2004 were carbon-nanotube-based transistors, quantum computing systems, nanophotonic devices, single-molecule electronic devices and biological magnetic sources. Due to the unprecedented success of the conference, the organizing committee of NDSI has unanimously chosen to turn NDSI into an annual international nanotechnology event. The next NDSI is scheduled for 4-6 April, 2005, in Houston, Texas. Details can be found on the conference web site at http://www.nanointernational.org. This special issue of Nanotechnology features selected papers from NDSI-2004.

    Women in Physics in Senegal  

    NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

    Senegal has a female adult literacy rate of 32% and societal conventions that hinder women. Less than 10% of Senalese girls finish high school. After the first IUPAP Conference on Women in Physics in 2002, problems and constraints faced by girls to study physics and women to make careers in physics in Senegal were identified and ways to overcome these problems were proposed. Progress on meeting these goals is presented.

    Computational Biology Support: RECOMB Conference Series (Conference Support)  

    SciTech Connect

    This funding was support for student and postdoctoral attendance at the Annual Recomb Conference from 2001 to 2005. The RECOMB Conference series was founded in 1997 to provide a scientific forum for theoretical advances in computational biology and their applications in molecular biology and medicine. The conference series aims at attracting research contributions in all areas of computational molecular biology. Typical, but not exclusive, the topics of interest are: Genomics, Molecular sequence analysis, Recognition of genes and regulatory elements, Molecular evolution, Protein structure, Structural genomics, Gene Expression, Gene Networks, Drug Design, Combinatorial libraries, Computational proteomics, and Structural and functional genomics. The origins of the conference came from the mathematical and computational side of the field, and there remains to be a certain focus on computational advances. However, the effective use of computational techniques to biological innovation is also an important aspect of the conference. The conference had a growing number of attendees, topping 300 in recent years and often exceeding 500. The conference program includes between 30 and 40 contributed papers, that are selected by a international program committee with around 30 experts during a rigorous review process rivaling the editorial procedure for top-rate scientific journals. In previous years papers selection has been made from up to 130--200 submissions from well over a dozen countries. 10-page extended abstracts of the contributed papers are collected in a volume published by ACM Press and Springer, and are available at the conference. Full versions of a selection of the papers are published annually in a special issue of the Journal of Computational Biology devoted to the RECOMB Conference. A further point in the program is a lively poster session. From 120-300 posters have been presented each year at RECOMB 2000. One of the highlights of each RECOMB conference is a collection of nine keynotes awarded to researchers of highest international esteem who are asked to inform the community about landmark advances in computational and experimental research and inject new directions into the field of computational molecular biology. This includes the following conference events: Next we present a list of the names of the students and postdocs supported. Those supported either presented a paper (10 in 2001, 6 in 2002, 7 in 2003, 14 in 2004, and 20 in 2006) or were they presenter of a poster. This support was vital to the quality and success of the Conference. At the conclusion we give the publication details of the relevant Recomb proceedings.

    2010 Atomic & Molecular Interactions Gordon Research Conference  

    SciTech Connect

    The Atomic and Molecular Interactions Gordon Conferences is justifiably recognized for its broad scope, touching on areas ranging from fundamental gas phase and gas-condensed matter collision dynamics, to laser-molecule interactions, photophysics, and unimolecular decay processes. The meeting has traditionally involved scientists engaged in fundamental research in gas and condensed phases and those who apply these concepts to systems of practical chemical and physical interest. A key tradition in this meeting is the strong mixing of theory and experiment throughout. The program for 2010 conference continues these traditions. At the 2010 AMI GRC, there will be talks in 5 broadly defined and partially overlapping areas of intermolecular interactions and chemical dynamics: (1) Photoionization and Photoelectron Dynamics; (2) Quantum Control and Molecules in Strong Fields; (3) Photochemical Dynamics; (4) Complex Molecules and Condensed Phases; and (5) Clusters and Reaction Dynamics. These areas encompass many of the most productive and exciting areas of chemical physics, including both reactive and nonreactive processes, intermolecular and intramolecular energy transfer, and photodissociation and unimolecular processes. Gas phase dynamics, van der Waals and cluster studies, laser-matter interactions and multiple potential energy surface phenomena will all be discussed.

    33rd Actinide Separations Conference  

    SciTech Connect

    Welcome to the 33rd Actinide Separations Conference hosted this year by the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. This annual conference is centered on the idea of networking and communication with scientists from throughout the United States, Britain, France and Japan who have expertise in nuclear material processing. This conference forum provides an excellent opportunity for bringing together experts in the fields of chemistry, nuclear and chemical engineering, and actinide processing to present and discuss experiences, research results, testing and application of actinide separation processes. The exchange of information that will take place between you, and other subject matter experts from around the nation and across the international boundaries, is a critical tool to assist in solving both national and international problems associated with the processing of nuclear materials used for both defense and energy purposes, as well as for the safe disposition of excess nuclear material. Granlibakken is a dedicated conference facility and training campus that is set up to provide the venue that supports communication between scientists and engineers attending the 33rd Actinide Separations Conference. We believe that you will find that Granlibakken and the Lake Tahoe views provide an atmosphere that is stimulating for fruitful discussions between participants from both government and private industry. We thank the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory and the United States Department of Energy for their support of this conference. We especially thank you, the participants and subject matter experts, for your involvement in the 33rd Actinide Separations Conference.

    Genetic analysis of the proBA genes of Salmonella typhimurium: physical and genetic analyses of the cloned proB+ A+ genes of Escherichia coli and of a mutant allele that confers proline overproduction and enhanced osmotolerance.  

    PubMed Central

    Because of the fact that proline overproduction relieves the inhibitory effects of high external osmotic strength in a number of procaryotes, we wished to clone a mutant allele, pro-74, that confers proline overproduction and enhanced osmotolerance on Salmonella typhimurium and Escherichia coli. Therefore, the pro-74 allele, originally located on an E. coli episome F'128, was cloned into pBR322. In a parallel experiment, the wild type proB+ A+ genes of E. coli were also cloned from F'128 into pBR322. Both the pro-74 and the proB+ A+ alleles were obtained on a 10.4-kilobase-pair fragment that also contained the unrelated phoE gene. Strains carrying either the wild-type proB+ A+ or the pro-74 alleles on pBR322 grew more slowly, both in minimal medium and media of elevated osmotic strength, than strains carrying the same alleles on the low-copy plasmid, F'128, indicating that some gene in the cloned region is deleterious in high copy. We constructed Tn5 insertion mutations in the proB and the proA genes of E. coli, carried on F'128 in S. typhimurium. Using P22 transduction in S. typhimurium, we transferred these proB and proA::Tn5 insertions from F'128 into the cloned proBA genes on pBR322. From the restriction maps of the plasmids thus generated, we determined the approximate locations of the proB and the proA genes. We also performed complementation tests of S. typhimurium and E. coli proB and proA mutants by using the F'128 proB and proA::Tn5 insertions. These tests revealed that the proBA genes of S. typhimurium form an operon, whose direction of transcription is from proB to proA. They also indicated that in S. typhimurium, as in E. coli, the proB+ gene encodes gamma-glutamyl kinase, and the proA+ gene encodes gamma-glutamyl phosphate reductase. Complementation tests also indicated that the pro-74 mutation is either in the proB structural gene, or its promoter-operator. Images

    Proceedings: Condenser technology conference  

    SciTech Connect

    Seam surface condenser and associated systems performance strongly affects availability and heat rate in nuclear and fossil power plants. Thirty-six papers presented at a 1990 conference discuss research results, industry experience, and case histories of condenser problems and solutions. This report contains papers on life extension, performance improvement, corrosion and failure analysis, fouling prevention, and recommendation for future R D. The information represents recent work on condenser problems and solutions to improve the procurement, operation, and maintenance functions of power plant personnel. Several key points follow: A nuclear and a fossil power plant report show that replacing titanium tube bundles improves condenser availability and performance. One paper reports 10 years of experience with enhanced heat transfer tubes in utility condensers. The newly developed enhanced condenser tubes could further improve condensing heat transfer. A new resistance summation method improves the accuracy of condenser performance prediction, especially for stainless steel and titanium tubed condensers. Several papers describe improved condenser fouling monitoring techniques, including a review of zebra mussel issues.

    Conference provides forum for discussion of subterranean coastal environments  

    NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

    An interdisciplinary group of geochemists, hydrologists,and biologists recently convened a conference to discuss mechanisms and impacts of advective exchange through permeable sediment systems at the terrestrial-marine interface. The format of the conference included 2 days of invited talks followed by working group sessions that focused on three critical areas of research: physical processes, diagenetic processes/organic carbon cycling, and process tracers. The overall theme of the conference reflected the growing recognition of the importance of sub-seabed exchange of coastal waters on the global mass balance of associated chemical species. Subterranean chemical exchange in coastal systems reflects a group of poorly constrained biogeochemical processes coupled with advective water exchange. This exchange occurs where ground waters or pore waters, ranging from saline to fresh, are cycled through permeable solids as a consequence of pressure gradients.

    HIV Infection in Women conference.  

    PubMed

    A national conference was held in the US in February 1995 on the issue of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection in women. The conference took place after the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) revised the definition of acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) to include invasive cervical cancer. This fact, then, acknowledged that HIV infection in women is not the same as in men. This fact also allowed researchers to focus on women and possibly develop gender-specific prevention and control measures. The conference was the forum to initiate women-specific research efforts. Collaboration in the biological, political, and socioeconomic arenas was strongly promoted. Topics addressed included scientific advancements, program development models, policy and advocacy issues, epidemiological studies, perinatal transmission, counseling, women-controlled prevention methods, and the relationship between violence against women and HIV. The conference was well attended. An address for program and abstract requests is provided. PMID:12346007

    EDITORIAL: Physics competitions Physics competitions  

    NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

    This editorial opens the second special section on physics competitions in European Journal of Physics. In the first section last year, we asked for feedback on the idea of such a section and on the content of the articles. We received no answer whatsoever, which can be interpreted in two ways: the section is not interesting enough to raise motivation for feedback, or the reader is satisfied. Having no indication which scenario is the correct one, we are optimistic and favour the second. The section at hand contains three articles. Again, as last year, the organizer of the annual Olympiad reports on tasks and outcomes of this competition. The Olympiad took place in Merida, Mexico, and was by far the largest event with 316 contestants from 68 countries. Again, the predominance of Asian/Chinese students was manifest, showing how serious the training is taken by both their authorities and students. Unfortunately, the winners of the last International Young Physicists' Tournament (IYPT), the team from Korea, did not accept the offer to report on their prize-winning contribution. We are thankful that two students from Austria, who achieved second place with their team, took over and reported on the task which they presented in the finals of the competition. It connects the fields of sport and physics and explains a special move in skateboarding. The third contribution introduces a different competition, 'International Conference of Young Scientists'. On one hand, as in the Olympiad, it addresses individuals, not teams. On the other, as in the IYPT, students have several months to prepare and also the quality of the presentation is an important element of the judgment. In fact, this competition comes closer to real scientific research compared to the other events. Finally and again, we hope that this section will serve several purposes: To show the competitions as a very important tool in the support of gifted students. To raise awareness amongst university teachers, and to help bridge the gap between physics teaching at schools and university. To point out that the tasks in these competitions are often suitable for university labs and as exercises.

The topics are: i) the cell cycle, ii) the cytoskeleton, iii) morphogenesis, iv) developmental transcription, v) signaling, vi) multicellularity, and vii) developmental diversity and symbiosis. The best-studied prokaryotic development model systems will be highlighted at the conference through research presentations by leaders in the field. Many of these systems are also model systems of relevance to the DOE mission including carbon sequestration (Bradyrizobium, Synechococcus), energy production (Anabaena, Rhodobacter) and bioremediation (Caulobacter, Mesorhizobium). In addition, many of the highlighted organisms have important practical applications; the actinomycetes and myxobacteria produce antimicrobials that are of commercial interest. It is certain that the cutting-edge science presented at the conference will be applicable to the large group of bacteria relevant to the DOE mission.

    Conference circuit for a digital communication system  

    US Patent & Trademark Office Database

    A 001 conference circuit for a digital communication system in which the analog-to-digital and digital-to-analog converters of at least two subscriber terminal stations have different bandwidth of their processable analog signals or in the code format of the digital signals or in the bit rate of the digital signals. It is not necessary for any conference participant to adapt to the equipment of any one of the other participants because the conference circuit comprises transcoders and corresponding transdecoders of different construction for each conference participant. This anoids the requirement that all conference participants must agree on the same bandwidth, the same code and the same bit rate. When establishing a conference connection, a control circuit actuates the appropriate transcoder and the corresponding transdecoder required for each conference participant. Each conference participant receives signals from the other participants during the conference, having the same quality as in the case of a connection between only two participants.

    Mini-Conference on the First Microns of the First Wall  

    SciTech Connect

    Interactions between plasmas and their surrounding materials (plasma facing components) are of great interest to present and future magnetic fusion experiments, and ITER [ITER Physics Basis Editors, ITER Physics Exper Group Chairs, ITER Joint Central Team, and Physics Inte gration Unit, Nucl. Fusion 39, 2137 (1999)] in particular. This interest is the result of concerns with the survivability of these materials, as well as the impact of these interactions back on the plasma. These interactions begin on the surface, but can have consequences a few microns into the material.This mini-conference on these "first microns" was designed to bring to the Division of Plasma Physics Meeting experts on these topics who would otherwise not attend. At the same time, the mini-conference was intended to expose the broader fusion community to these issues. The mini-conference covered in three, half-day sessions the topics of lithium coatings and surfaces, mixed materials characteristics, and issues associated with graphite.

    Adventures in Studio Physics  

    NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

    In the Fall of 2005 we began offering a calculus-based first-year, two-course introductory physics sequence using the studio format, based on Workshop Physics[1] by P. Laws etal. We will recount our experiences in introducing a workshop-based physics course at a large Canadian university from the initial push to the final implementation. In particular, we will discuss the details of our curriculum and what modifications were made to align our Studio Physics I&II courses with the currently existing lecture courses. This involved, among other things, adapting some of our first-year physics laboratory experiments in optics and electricity and magnetism to the workshop format. We will also discuss the myriad of obstacles that were encountered along the way. The results of before-and-after FCI testing for the first two offerings of Studio Physics I will also be presented along with student feedback from course evaluations. And finally, we will elaborate on our plans for the future.

    The Danish Fitness and Nutrition Council has examined the scientific literature to evaluate the performance and health-related aspects of consuming dietary supplements in the context of physical activity. Certain nutritional supplements such as creatine and caffeine have documented ergogenic effects in specific situations. However, for the moderately physically active adult and healthy individual, who already consumes an energy- and nutrient balanced diet, consuming any currently legal dietary supplement does not seem to confer additional benefits on performance or health.

    PREFACE: International Conference on Superconductivity and Magnetism-ICSM2008  

    NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

    The International Conference on Superconductivity and Magnetism (ICSM2008) was held at the congress centre of Ankara University in Side, Antalya, between 25-29 August 2008. The conference was the first conference on the combined fields of superconductivity and magnetism organized in Turkey at international level, and it had broad international participation from 42 countries, with registered delegates numbering over 400. A quarter of the attendees were research students. The conference attracted many of the best known leading scientists and experts in the field of superconductivity and magnetism from all over the world. The scientific program involved the presentation and discussion of 336 papers, classified as 65 invited, 81 oral and 190 posters. Submission of papers for the proceedings was on a volunteer basis and we therefore had nearly half of the presented papers, i.e. 30 submitted invited papers, peer-reviewed by Superconductor Science and Technology, and 85 submitted contributing papers, peer-reviewed by the organizers through processes administered by the Editorial Board and Scientific Committee. Reviews were conducted by expert referees at professional level and with the scientific standards expected of a proceedings journal issue published by IOP Publishing. The invited papers on superconductivity and magnetism with superconductivity were considered and processed for Superconductor Science and Technology by IOP itself. Although there are missing papers from some of the plenary speakers, we believe that this special issue of Superconductor Science and Technology (SUST) and the corresponding issue of Journal of Physics: Conference Series (JPCS) reflect most of the booming research in the fields of superconductivity and magnetism. We are very pleased to have worked with IOP on the conference proceedings, with special thanks to Dr Tom Miller and Dr Graham Douglas. Based on a refereed evaluation of all the papers and posters submitted, about 93 papers were selected for publication in the Journal of Physics: Conference Series and Superconductor Science and Technology. The immensely rich and diverse scientific program started with Professor D Hampshire's opening plenary on 26 August 2008 and sessions were mostly chaired by the invited speakers. The topics included: New superconductors Theory and applications of MgB2 and boride superconductors Hybrid magnetic-superconducting systems High temperature superconductors: theory and applications Superconducting devices and applications Oxypnictide superconductors Superconducting sources of THz-radiation Vortex dynamics Spintronics Superconductivity and magnetism at nanoscale Multiferroic materials Manganities Materials and fabrication techniques Conventional superconductors Microscopic theories of high temperature superconductors Device physics and thin films. We believe that this conference, with the above topics, has provided a forum where the many matters of interest to the superconductivity and magnetism community have been debated. We are of the opinion that the conference has been a very successful one and we hope that the subsequent conferences in this field will constitute a series of fruitful meetings, by growing to become larger global events with greater success in bridging the gap between the best scientists, engineers, exhibitors and participants from countries underrepresented in science and technology. The delegates and companions also enjoyed the social program in the touristic and historical places of the surrounding area, during the excursion time after 4.30pm on conference days. The welcome reception was held at the historical site of the Apollo Temple in Side and sponsored by the Municipality of Side; a second welcome party was also organized at the congress centre in the evening of 25 August 2008, for late-arriving participants. The social program also continued in the evenings with a variety of different entertainment. The meeting was financially supported by generous contributions from Turkish research institutions, and an Italian firm, Columbus Superc

    Arena 2005 Conference Summary  

    NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

    This meeting, as the reader sees in the preceding written contributions, represented an exciting new step in a budding revolution in extremely high energy cosmic ray and neutrino physics. The focus upon acoustic and radio detection techniques, reveals a rapidly expanding interest and real progress. Most of the basic ideas have been known for many years, but it is only now that they are at last beginning to be exploited. The reasons for this are several, ranging from the advance of technology to scientific focus of the community. The former comes largely from electronics and communications technology progress. The latter comes about due to the "neutrino revolution" and the campaign to understand the highest energy (GZK) cosmic rays. At least 25 projects are in various stages of dreaming through construction. Positive detections would seem not far in the future.

    PREFACE: International Conference on Fundamentals and Applications of HIPIMS  

    NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

    Thin film technology and surface engineering are nowadays key components for numerous innovative products like efficient windows, flat screens, sensors or hard coatings used in tool coating and automotive applications, as well as products for everyday life. In line with the demands of surface technology, coating technology is also evolving and improving. The latest major technology jump was the introduction of pulse technology in physical vapor deposition. High power impulse magnetron sputtering is the most recent development of pulse sputtering. After approximately a decade of intense academic investigation and development we observe today a transfer of this new technology towards industrial processes. As well as several international activities the international conference on fundamentals and applications of HIPIMS continues the success story of the HIPIMS days, initiated in 2004 at Sheffield Hallam University, UK. Becoming the only international conference especially dedicated to HIPIMS the HIPIMS conference is a venue for industrial and academic exchange on the latest developments in this fast evolving new technology. As a joint undertaking of Sheffield Hallam University SHU, Network of Competence for Industrial Plasma Surface Technology INPLAS and Fraunhofer Institute for Surface Engineering and Thin Films IST the HIPIMS conference was launched in 2010 in Sheffield, UK. With 120 delegates the impact of the new conference was underlined. The growing importance of HIPIMS technology was connected with a growth by nearly 35% to 160 participants in 2011 at the second HIPIMS conference in Braunschweig, DE. The participants were made up of equal numbers from research and development (university and research institutes) and industry. Being a global conference representatives from 25 different countries from all continents attended. The HIPIMS conference is also in joint collaboration with the COST Action MP0804 Highly Ionized Pulse Plasma Processes (www.hipp-cost.eu). COST (European Cooperation in Science and Technology) is one of the longest-running European frameworks supporting cooperation among scientists and researchers across Europe (www.cost.eu). The COST Action MP0804 HIPP processes focuses on the fundamentals and the industrial implementation of highly ionized pulse plasmas, where HIPIMS is the most prominent and most mature technology, today. Over 50 high level contributions, divided in 37 oral and 14 poster presentations were highly appreciated by the professional audience. The message from 2011 was that HIPIMS technology has now reached industry. In the opening session of the conference representatives from different companies reported on the latest developments in industrialization. Using HIPIMS technology, the lifetime of mills using a state of the art coating can be extended by 50%. Comparable deposition rates for coating cutting inserts on the different faces are reported. The ice-free window for automotive application is one solution just becoming available by HIPIMS technology. The talks from international experts covered a range from fundamental physics, experimental investigations, theoretically modeling to several applications and made the international conference on fundamentals and applications a success story to be continued in the following years.

    Conference structures and fair allocation rules  

    Microsoft Academic Search

    To describe how the outcome of a cooperative game might depend on which groups of players hold cooperative planning conferences, we study allocation rules, which are functions mapping conference structures to payoff allocations. An allocation rule is fair if every conference always gives equal benefits to all its members. Any characteristic function game without sidepayments has a unique fair allocation
