4th EASN Association International Workshop on Flight Physics and Aircraft Design
27-29 October 2014, Aachen, Germany
The European Aeronautics Science Network (EASN) is delighted to announce that the 4th out of a series of annual specialized Workshops, this time in the fields of Flight Physics and Aircraft Design, will be held on October 27-29, 2014 in Aachen, Germany on the premises of RWTH Aachen University.
The Workshop will be co-chaired by Prof. Eike Stumpf and Prof. Wolfgang Schröder. In the frame of EASN Association’s knowledge and innovation dissemination activities, this three-day event primarily aims to offer its participants a forum to meet and present among relative audience, the latest advancements in the areas of Flight Physics and Aircraft Design, together with novel and innovative ideas for future research. The 4th EASN Workshop on Flight Physics and Aircraft Design is expected to be, like its predecessors, a major dissemination event for running research projects.
Smart Grids Congress
27-28 October 2014, Madrid, Spain
The “Smart Grids Congress” is the main forum in Spain about Smart Grids. The congress covers a wide range of aspect related to the development of the Smart Grids, including energy efficiency, security, usability, etc. as well as the integration of new services such as: Electrical Vehicles, Smart Meters, Smart Buildings, etc., all from both a legal, technical and business perspective. The main content of the congress is based on a call for papers from which the technical board selects the papers to be presented in the congress. Additionally several Round Table discussions and Key Note speeches take place.
ITHEC 2014 - 2nd International Conference and Exhibition on Thermoplastic Composites
27-28 October 2014, Bremen, Germany
With sessions on Automotives, Aero Structures and Wind Energy / Offshore Applications and Manufacturing Technologies, ITHEC 2012 promoted structural thermoplastic lightweight structures enabling an economic high-volume production for a wide range of applications. In addition to these topics, the upcoming event ITHEC 2014 will have a special focus on hybrid materials and technologies.
MESSE BREMEN and the Faserinstitut Bremen e.V., (FIBRE) successfully launched ITHEC in October 2012. 280 highly satisfied participants (70% from industry) and 27 exhibitors, including the technological leaders, gathered in Bremen for this kick-off event on a promising class of composites.
Keystone Symposia: Cell Death Signaling in Cancer and the Immune System
28 October - 1 November 2014, Sao Paulo, Brazil
Cellular decisions to live or die are fundamental to development and adult homeostasis, playing roles in a wide variety of physiological and pathological processes. These include cancer, degenerative disease, innate and adaptive immunity, ischemia-reperfusion injury, and infectious disease. As the study of cell death moves beyond the central mechanisms of apoptosis to wider issues of regulation and other forms of cell death, this vibrant area of research widens its influence and importance for human health and disease.
We strongly encourage students and postdoctoral fellows submit an abstract and apply for Scholarship and Underrepresented Trainee Scholarship opportunities. Please visit our website for eligibility and application criteria. Submitting an abstract enables maximum participation in the meeting through presentation in a poster session. Abstracts submitted by the deadline also afford consideration for short talk presentation in either a plenary session or a workshop.

Smart Data Forum
25-26 June 2014, Nice, France
The exponential growth in the volume of personal and professional data raises new challenges. The digital deluge will lead to radically different patterns of behavior on the part of individuals and corporations, revolutionizing service delivery and value creation. Properly processed and analyzed, this data can become “Smart Data”.
Smart Data 2014 is positioned as a think tank for the monetization of digital assets, delivering: • new viewpoints for project initiators in corporate and governmental environments • expert guidance on the protection and analysis of big data • an overview of best practices and the latest solutions.
Transfigurations: Curatorial and Artistic Research in an Age of Migrations
19-26 June 2014, MACBA - Capella, Museum of Contemporary Art of Barcelona
Within the framework of MeLa Research Field 04, the fieldwork developed by the Royal College of Art into curatorial and artistic research will culminate in the exhibition “Transfigurations: Curatorial and artistic research in an age of migrations”.
How are globalisation, digital media and changing patterns of migration affecting our understanding and experience of the contemporary work of art, and how are contemporary artists engaging with curators to think about the condition of the contemporary through their work, its display and collection? How are curators working with new forms of artistic production, particularly ‘immaterial’ works of art, that fall outside conventional forms of display, collection and archive?
This research exhibition brings together a rich group of international artists and curators:
• MACBA in Barcelona with curator Bartomeu Marí and artist Lawrence Abu-Hamdan
• Bétonsalon in Paris with curator Mélanie Bouteloup and artist Camille Henrot
• Whitechapel Gallery in London with curator Sofia Victorino and artist Kader Attia
• Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam with curators Jelle Bouwhuis / Kerstin Winking and artist Quinsy Gario
• Royal College of Art in London with Paul Goodwin and artist Leo Asemota
In particular, the research exhibition reflects on the challenges and opportunities of curatorial and artistic research in the 21st century, and the rise of new forms of practice such as performance, sound, and video which are both expanding the range of artists’ interests and challenging conventional ideas of the ‘art object’ in museums and galleries. Following what has been described as ‘the curatorial turn’ and ‘the educational turn’ the exhibition considers how complex the interface is between issues of representation, globalisation, collection and object, curating, programming, audiences, and technology.
MILESCURE-2050 Energy Day on “Transition towards low carbon energy society”
25 June 2014, Brussels
In the frame of the EU sustainable energy week (23-27 June 2014) the MILESECURE-2050 project presented its preliminary results to 60 EU decision-makers and stakeholders on 25 June 2014 at ENEA Brussels headquarter.
Both techno-economic and socio-cultural aspects of low carbon society and EU energy security of supply were addressed using quantitative and qualitative approaches. They dealt with trends and scenarios as well as with the human factor in energy transition.
For more information about MILESECURE-2050, please contact Patrizia Lombardi at Politecnico di Torino (Patrizia.Lombardi at polito.it) or Domenico Rossetti di Valdalbero (Domenico.Rossetti-di-Valdalbero at ec.europa.eu).
Energy Systems Integration – a global innovation challenge
25 June 2014, Brussels
Our energy system is very complex. It includes not only renewable, nuclear, and fossil energy sources but also electrical, thermal, and fuel energy pathways that convert, store and deliver energy services at different physical scales.
The integration of various energy sources and vectors in the energy system is a practical challenge with important contributions to security of supply.
The objective of the workshop is to highlight the complementarity of this research area compared with smart grids and storage. It also aims at exploring the added value of the cooperation with international partners.
