World e-ID Congress

23-25 September 2014, Marseille, France

For a link to this event only, use the event permalink

World e-ID Congress has become a key event gathering nearly 400 e-ID programs managers, government officials and technology experts. The 2014 conference will keep its focus on world's most inspiring projects and latest innovation helping the participants to succeed in their e-ID plans and stay ahead of e-ID services


CO2-based Chemicals Production using Industrial Biotechnology

24 September 2014, Lyon, France

For a link to this event only, use the event permalink

The BIO-TIC project has organised this workshop with the aim to identify technological, non-technological and market hurdles for the uptake of industrial biotechnology in CO2 based chemicals production and develop recommendations and solutions to overcome the identified hurdles. Input from market, policy and technological experts is crucial to help us develop recommendations which best answer the needs of industry and further build on the roadmaps.

CO2 is increasingly being considered by many as a commodity rather than a waste product. The largest current use for CO2 is currently in enhanced oil recovery. However, CO2 holds great potential as a feedstock for chemicals production using IB processes, especially in the EU where the research base is strong and where there is an abundance of CO2 available. CO2 is not part of the food chain so avoids any issues over food v fuel. However, public perception, and logistical and cost challenges in terms of CO2 transport and distribution could hamper the potential of CO2 to be used for chemicals and substantial R&D is needed to bring many opportunities to fruition.


Natural Products & Biocontrol 2014

24-26 September 2014, Perpignan, France

For a link to this event only, use the event permalink

The activity of biocontrol products depend on numerous biotic interactions implying secondary metabolisms. The Natural Products and Biocontrol Congress covers the whole research about the natural components involved in biocontrol processes.

The natural compounds involved in interactions are exogene to the plant (active components of a vegetal extract, microbial metabolite, pheromons) or endogene (produced by a plant in response of an elicitor). Therefore the Congress also covers the research in the vegetal response to elicitors and phytostimulus. It is opened to scientists, technicians, industrials whose research are centred on biocontrol and natural products. The main points of the event open conferences, scientific presentations (spoken or displayed), one to one , discussions.


ExpeER International Conference 2014

24-25 September 2014, Paris

For a link to this event only, use the event permalink

The Earth's rapidly changing environment is putting critical ecosystem services at risk. There are many challenges involved in understanding global environmental changes, and in providing societies with the policy-relevant knowledge base to deal with them. These challenges will reach across many aspects of scientific endeavour.

In this context the Experimentation in Ecosystem Research conference will provide a platform for discussions on cutting-edge technological tools, large-scale integrative experimental design, technical constraints, data access and last but not least ecosystem modelling. The conference will attract speakers and delegates from around the world and will offer opportunities to reinforce global cooperation. Main topics Grand challenges: With the current set of Experimental Research infrastructures in ecosystem science, do we have the capacity to tackle the grand challenges of today and tomorrow? In vitro and in natura : How realistic are they, and how they can be better linked? Technologies: Which emerging technologies could enhance (or are needed for) the performance and services offered by our RIs? Data: Towards an e-infrastructure for ecosystem research - challenges and opportunities Modelling: How accurate is our capacity to forecast and upscale, and what is missing? How can we communicate uncertainty? How do we strike the right balance between modelling and experiments?

Introduction to Aircraft Aeroelasticity and Loads - 5 Day Course

14-18 July 2014, Bristol (UK)

For a link to this event only, use the event permalink

The course is being run as part of the EU funded ALPES (Aircraft Loads Prediction using Enhanced Simulation) Marie-Curie Initial Training Network.

Course Objectives:

  • To introduce the main concepts of Aeroelasticity and Loads, and the multi-disciplinary methods needed for their study
  • To provide an understanding of the main principles of Aeroelasticity and Loads analysis by:
    • using simple mathematical models to illustrate basic theoretical concepts,
    • showing the maths – but not explaining all of the detail and derivations, instead focusing on the connection with the physics introducing relevant terminology and methods, and
    • explaining the analysis, testing and certification processes used by the aerospace industry
  • To include examples on some of the key topics.

 


Braga 2014 - Embracing Inclusive Approaches

14-17 July 2014, Braga, Portugal

For a link to this event only, use the event permalink

DISES and the Institute of Education at the University of Minho proudly invite you to participate in an international conference on inclusion and special education to be held in Braga, Portugal in July 14–17, 2014. Practitioners, researchers, policy makers, and NGOs from Europe, Central Asia, South, Central and North America will be joined by colleagues from around the globe to engage in lively and informed discussions about the current state of the expertise in meeting the needs of children and youth with special educational needs. The organizing partners welcome proposals from all interested professionals from around the globe.
