Desertec Best Paper Award 2012 - Call for application is open

Dii, together with the Desertec University Network, will organize the Desertec Best Paper Award which rewards excellent academic work outstanding academic work in the renewable energy field.

Last year, the authors of the four top papers were invited to Dii's annual conference in Cairo where they received their awards and had the opportunity to present their work.

Deadline: 08.10.2012
The Desertec Best Paper Award recognizes outstanding academic work related to the development of renewable energy in North Africa, the Middle East and Europe. Last year, more than fifty students and young researchers from this region applied for the award. The authors of the four top papers were invited to Dii's 2011 conference in Cairo where they received their awards and had the opportunity to present their work. Six further best authors received free entrance to the conference.

Do you wish to participate? Dii is happy to announce the opening of the call for paper for the Desertec Best Paper Award 2012. Please read the selection criteria carefully.

Who can apply

All students or young researchers studying/researching at a university or research center based in North Africa, the Middle East or Europe are invited to participate in the award, regardless of degree level. Students who have recently graduated, and whose paper has been written since 2009, are also eligible for the award. The paper can be related to a published article, a Bachelor, Master or PhD thesis, or an independent research.

Paper subject

The paper should ideally address one of the following topics:

• Financing large-scale renewable energy projects – what are the success factors? How to strengthen local financial markets in MENA?
• Regional cooperation in MENA countries – best practices and perspectives
• Regulatory challenges to cross-border transmission lines – how to address these challenges?
• Transmission lines – status of HVDC technology and perspectives, operational issues and aspects of meshed HVDC supergrids
• Connecting North Africa and the Middle East with Europe – how can an integrated EUMENA power system be achieved?
• Benefits of large-scale renewable energy projects and of an integrated system
• Public awareness and social acceptance of renewable energy in general
• Wind storm protection techniques
• Generation plant water consumption reduction techniques
• Papers addressing other Dii related topics will also be taken into consideration.

The award

The authors of the 4 best papers will receive free entrance to the 3rd Dii Desert Energy Conference from 7th - 9th of November 2012 in Berlin and all travel expenses will be covered. Furthermore, the winners´ papers will be published on the Dii website and they will also have the opportunity to present a brief summary of their work during the conference. A further 6 authors will receive free entrance to the conference.

The submission materials should include:
• Executive summary: 4 pages (Font: Arial 11), full version of the study should be available upon request
• Completed form with your contact data and name of your university/research center. You will find the submission form in attachment.
• Motivation letter: 1 page (Font: Arial 11) answering the following questions: Why is your work relevant for Desertec? Why do you want to participate/present your results at the conference?

• Your CV

Please submit your application in English, and in PDF form, no later than 8th October 2012 to Noëlie Vegas (vegas(at), Tel: +49 89 340 77 05 82).

Im Focus: 'Nanochains' could increase battery capacity, cut charging time

How long the battery of your phone or computer lasts depends on how many lithium ions can be stored in the battery's negative electrode material. If the battery runs out of these ions, it can't generate an electrical current to run a device and ultimately fails.

Materials with a higher lithium ion storage capacity are either too heavy or the wrong shape to replace graphite, the electrode material currently used in...

Im Focus: Happy hour für die zeitaufgelöste Kristallographie

Ein Forschungsteam vom Max-Planck-Institut für Struktur und Dynamik der Materie (MPSD), der Universität Hamburg und dem European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) hat eine neue Methode entwickelt, um Biomoleküle bei der Arbeit zu beobachten. Sie macht es bedeutend einfacher, enzymatische Reaktionen auszulösen, da hierzu ein Cocktail aus kleinen Flüssigkeitsmengen und Proteinkristallen angewandt wird. Ab dem Zeitpunkt des Mischens werden die Proteinstrukturen in definierten Abständen bestimmt. Mit der dadurch entstehenden Zeitraffersequenz können nun die Bewegungen der biologischen Moleküle abgebildet werden.

Die Funktionen von Biomolekülen werden nicht nur durch ihre molekularen Strukturen, sondern auch durch deren Veränderungen bestimmt. Mittels der...

Im Focus: Happy hour for time-resolved crystallography

Researchers from the Department of Atomically Resolved Dynamics of the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) at the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science in Hamburg, the University of Hamburg and the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) outstation in the city have developed a new method to watch biomolecules at work. This method dramatically simplifies starting enzymatic reactions by mixing a cocktail of small amounts of liquids with protein crystals. Determination of the protein structures at different times after mixing can be assembled into a time-lapse sequence that shows the molecular foundations of biology.

The functions of biomolecules are determined by their motions and structural changes. Yet it is a formidable challenge to understand these dynamic motions.
