CMD25 - JMC14: third call for contributions to "Condensed Matter in Paris"

Posted By Administration, 14 April 2014

Dear colleagues,

 

With the mark of 400 contributions from all over Europe, in all of the 38 topical sessions, passed,

 

                                                  Condensed Matter in Paris CMD 25 – JMC 14

 

   is picking up momentum fast. Your peers have already registered, but you too can still be part of

   this large condensed matter physics meeting, that unites CMD 25, the Condensed Matter confe-

   rence of the European Physical Society EPS, and JMC 14, the 14th “Journées de la Matière

   Condensée” of the French Physical Society SFP.

 

   From August 24th to 29th, Condensed Matter in Paris CMD 25 – JMC 14 is expecting to host more

   than 1000 European Condensed Matter physicists in sunny Paris, and is therefore the place to be.

 

Submission of abstracts to Condensed Matter in Paris is possible until April 15th, 2014.

 

   The program of Condensed Matter in Paris will comprise 6 plenary and 15 semi-plenary invited

   Talks, round table discussions on physics start-ups, the future of physics publishing, and women

   in physics, and, of course, the 38 Mini-colloquia (Topical Sessions).

 

  You may submit your most recent work to the Mini-colloquium of choice on the conference website,

  http://cmd25jmc14.sciencesconf.org/

 

   Registration rates have been kept very modest so that all who wish to attend can do so. Moreover,

   extremely advantageous rates are available for (graduate) students and young researchers.

 

     Please circulate this information

 

   On behalf of the Program Committee and the Local Organizing Committee, the SFP and the EPS,

   I am looking forward to welcoming you in Paris this summer

                                  

      Yours sincerely,

 

      Kees van der Beek

      Chair, Condensed Matter in Paris CMD25 – JMC14

 

The official language of Condensed Matter in Paris CMD25 – JMC14 will be English.

International Year of Light announces Philips Lighting as first Patron Sponsor

Posted By Administration, 10 April 2014
The United Nations (UN) General Assembly 68th Session has proclaimed 2015 as the International Year of Light and Light-based Technologies (IYL 2015).   The International Year of Light is the initiative of a large Consortium of scientific bodies with UNESCO as lead agency, and the IYL 2015 Consortium is delighted to announce partnership in this International Year with Royal Philips – global leader in lighting solutions – as first Patron Sponsor.

In proclaiming an International Year focusing on the topic of light science and its applications, the United Nations has recognized the importance of raising global awareness of how light-based technologies promote sustainable development and provide solutions to global challenges in energy, education, agriculture and health.  

Harry Verhaar, Head of Global Public and Government Affairs at Philips Lighting comments: “The transformative power of light is immense as we have seen over the last 120 years of Philips’ history – from the launch of the first commercial incandescent bulb through to connected LED lighting solutions. Lighting has now entered a digital era, where sustainable LED technologies are connected to networks, devices and apps and placed to address the world’s challenges like never before.  2015 and the International Year of Light presents the opportunity to realize the potential of recent innovations in light to benefit people both socially and economically, while addressing global challenges like climate change at the same time.”  

As a Patron of the International Year of Light, Philips will work closely with the IYL2015 Consortium to design and implement actions throughout 2015 to highlight the crucial role that light and light-based technologies play in improving the quality of people’s lives worldwide. 

Philips will play a leading role in several specific areas throughout 2015.  During the Opening Ceremony at UNESCO HQ in January 2015 and at other events during the year, Philips will participate in high-level Round Tables discussing the need for innovative lighting solutions to address issues of energy efficiency and climate protection.  

Philips will also support a key programme of the International Year of Light focussing on the fact that for over 1.5 billion people around the world, night-time means either darkness or the dim glow of an unhealthy kerosene lamp or candle.  With specific emphasis on the impact this has on educational opportunities, Philips will participate in the IYL2015 programme “Study after Sunset” to promote the use of portable solar-powered high-brightness LED lanterns in regions where there is little or no reliable source of light.

Maciej Nalecz, Director, Executive Secretary of the International Basic Sciences Programme at UNESCO HQ in Paris adds “UNESCO is very keen to engage with Private Sector partners in its activities in areas of sustainability and development, and Philips Lighting is a natural partner of the International Year of Light. We look forward to working with them during 2014 and 2015”.

EPFL: The SwissTech Convention Center, a laboratory for conferences of the future

Posted By Administration, 03 April 2014
EPFL, 3 April 2014 

The SwissTech Convention Center, which opened today, is one of the most modern and best equipped conference centers in the world. With this new tool that makes it possible to organize the most ambitious meetings, EPFL reaffirms its strong position at the heart of Europe’s scientific community. Funded by two Credit Suisse real estate funds, the building and the Northern Quarter in which it stands were planned and carried out by HRS Real Estate SA according to plans by the architectural firm Richter Dahl Rocha & Associés SA in Lausanne. In a world first, a solar photovoltaic facade composed of “Grätzel cells” has been installed with the support of Romande Energie.

Joint EPS-SIF International School on Energy 2014: call for appplications

Posted By Administration, 01 April 2014
Updated: 01 April 2014

The second course of the Joint EPS-SIF International School on Energy will take place in Varenna (lake Como, Italy) from 16 to 23 July 2014.

The primary goal of the School will be to present all physics fields with relevance for the technologies of energy production, conversion, transmission and savings. Their potential will be presented but also the need for more research and development to fully unfold it will be indicated. For this purpose, basic lectures and topical seminars will be presented by specialists in their field.

The School will cover major fields in detailed lectures but it will also serve as a forum of discussions. It brings together scientists working in various energy related areas.
The following fields will be covered by lectures or seminars: solar photovoltaic and photothermal sources, hydro, wind, biomass, fossils, fission, fusion, energy saving technology, climate issues along with other topics where physics plays a role.

The lectures will also identify cases where more research is necessary. In order to ensure a lively and up-to-date School, there will be plenary sessions going over several days and topical seminars. In case your are interested in energy technology or even working in this field, we would encourage you to sign up.

The deadline for application is set to 30 April 2014.

Visit the SIF website for more info about the School.
