Frontiers of Scientific and Technical Data, Montreal, Canada

10.09.2002


On September 29th some of the world’s top scientists and experts will gather in Montreal, Canada, for the 18th International CODATA Conference, Frontiers of Scientific and Technical Data. With scientific institutions from 5 continents represented, speakers from 37 countries will contribute to a program that offers a truly global snapshot of data and informatics today. The Conference is designed to facilitate the exchange of ideas and expose data specialists to the complexity and variety of scientific data needs among their colleagues in other disciplines.



The four-day program covers virtually every aspect of scientific and technical data with

190 contributed papers and 30 keynote and invited speakers. Some of the most renowned scientists and data experts in the world will address cross-cutting themes focusing on issues such as: data preservation and archiving, emerging tools and techniques for data handling, interoperability and data integration, legal issues, information economics and ethics in the use of scientific and technical data. Technical presentations by data experts will cover the most recent developments in biology, the physical sciences, earth and environmental sciences, engineering, health care, data and information science and the social sciences.

One of the conference highlights is the special open session on the evening of October 1st. Visualizations of our Planet`s Atmosphere, Land & Oceans will give the audience the chance to experience a virtual reality fly-through, witnessing dust storms in Africa and smoke plumes from fires in Mexico. In this multimedia presentation Dr. Fritz Hasler of the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center illustrates how High-Definition Television (HDTV) is revolutionizing the way science is communicated today.


The Canadian and U.S. National Committees for CODATA will host this Conference. CODATA 2002 continues a 36-year tradition of serving international science by holding an open and exciting conference on the latest advances in scientific and technical data.

Im Focus: LaserTAB: Effizientere und präzisere Kontakte dank Roboter-Kollaboration

Auf der diesjährigen productronica in München stellt das Fraunhofer-Institut für Lasertechnik ILT das Laser-Based Tape-Automated Bonding, kurz LaserTAB, vor: Die Aachener Experten zeigen, wie sich dank neuer Optik und Roboter-Unterstützung Batteriezellen und Leistungselektronik effizienter und präziser als bisher lasermikroschweißen lassen.

Auf eine geschickte Kombination von Roboter-Einsatz, Laserscanner mit selbstentwickelter neuer Optik und Prozessüberwachung setzt das Fraunhofer ILT aus Aachen.

Im Focus: LaserTAB: More efficient and precise contacts thanks to human-robot collaboration

At the productronica trade fair in Munich this November, the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT will be presenting Laser-Based Tape-Automated Bonding, LaserTAB for short. The experts from Aachen will be demonstrating how new battery cells and power electronics can be micro-welded more efficiently and precisely than ever before thanks to new optics and robot support.

Fraunhofer ILT from Aachen relies on a clever combination of robotics and a laser scanner with new optics as well as process monitoring, which it has developed...

Im Focus: The pyrenoid is a carbon-fixing liquid droplet

Plants and algae use the enzyme Rubisco to fix carbon dioxide, removing it from the atmosphere and converting it into biomass. Algae have figured out a way to increase the efficiency of carbon fixation. They gather most of their Rubisco into a ball-shaped microcompartment called the pyrenoid, which they flood with a high local concentration of carbon dioxide. A team of scientists at Princeton University, the Carnegie Institution for Science, Stanford University and the Max Plank Institute of Biochemistry have unravelled the mysteries of how the pyrenoid is assembled. These insights can help to engineer crops that remove more carbon dioxide from the atmosphere while producing more food.

Im Focus: Hochpräzise Verschaltung in der Hirnrinde

Es ist noch immer weitgehend unbekannt, wie die komplexen neuronalen Netzwerke im Gehirn aufgebaut sind. Insbesondere in der Hirnrinde der Säugetiere, wo Sehen, Denken und Orientierung berechnet werden, sind die Regeln, nach denen die Nervenzellen miteinander verschaltet sind, nur unzureichend erforscht. Wissenschaftler um Moritz Helmstaedter vom Max-Planck-Institut für Hirnforschung in Frankfurt am Main und Helene Schmidt vom Bernstein-Zentrum der Humboldt-Universität in Berlin haben nun in dem Teil der Großhirnrinde, der für die räumliche Orientierung zuständig ist, ein überraschend präzises Verschaltungsmuster der Nervenzellen entdeckt.

Wie die Forscher in Nature berichten (Schmidt et al., 2017. Axonal synapse sorting in medial entorhinal cortex, DOI: 10.1038/nature24005), haben die...

Im Focus: Highly precise wiring in the Cerebral Cortex

Our brains house extremely complex neuronal circuits, whose detailed structures are still largely unknown. This is especially true for the so-called cerebral cortex of mammals, where among other things vision, thoughts or spatial orientation are being computed. Here the rules by which nerve cells are connected to each other are only partly understood. A team of scientists around Moritz Helmstaedter at the Frankfiurt Max Planck Institute for Brain Research and Helene Schmidt (Humboldt University in Berlin) have now discovered a surprisingly precise nerve cell connectivity pattern in the part of the cerebral cortex that is responsible for orienting the individual animal or human in space.

The researchers report online in Nature (Schmidt et al., 2017. Axonal synapse sorting in medial entorhinal cortex, DOI: 10.1038/nature24005) that synapses in...
