June 22, 2010 Von: Gregor Kategorie: Allgemein Comments Off on SimTech 2011: Ankündigung & Call for Posters

Vom 14. bis 17. Juni 2011 findet die „International Conference on Simulation Technology“ – SimTech 2011 – in Stuttgart statt. Die Konferenz wird vom Exzellenzcluster SimTech der Universität Stuttgart ausgerichtet und deckt nach eigener Aussage nahezu die gesamte Bandbreite der simulationstechnologischen Forschung ab. Hauptthemen der Konferenz werden sein:
– Molekular- und Partikelsimulation,
– Moderne Mechanik von Mehrskalen- und Mehrfeldproblemen,
– Systemanalyse und inverse Problemstellungen,
– Numerische Mathematik und Wissenschaftliches Rechnen,
– Integriertes Datenmanagement und interaktive Visualisierung,
– Hybride Höchstleistungsrechnersysteme und Softwaretechnik und
– Integrative Plattform der Reflexion und Bewertung.

In 13 Hauptvorträgen werden die verschiedenen Bereiche der Simulationsforschung vorgestellt. Neben den Vorträgen wird es eine Reihe von Poster Sessions, eine Podiumsdiskussion sowie einige Networking-Aktivitäten geben. Nähere Informationen zur Konferenz gibt es unter www.simtech.uni-stuttgart.de/simtech2011 oder im zugehörigen Flyer.

Das Exzellenzcluster SimTech lädt Wissenschaftler ein, die in einem der Themenbereiche der Konferenz forschen, ihre Forschungsarbeit im Rahmen von Poster Sessions vorzustellen. Bis zum 30. November 2010 besteht die Gelegenheit, am Call for Posters teilzunehmen.

FIVE – Fire In Vehicles: Conference in Gothenburg (Sweden), 29-30 Sept 2010

March 09, 2010 Von: Karl Kategorie: Allgemein Comments Off on FIVE – Fire In Vehicles: Conference in Gothenburg (Sweden), 29-30 Sept 2010

Fires in vehicles pose a significant threat to life and property. Recently, fires in buses have been in focus due to catastrophic incidents for example in Germany. Train fires are also high on the research agenda due to recent European-based research projects such as TRANSFEU. A nightmare scenario is a large vehicle fire in a tunnel. At the same time new fuels and electrical vehicles are emerging in response to our need for sustainable transport alternatives. Such alternative vehicles introduce new fire challenges that need to be accounted for.

In response to the pressing need for international dialogue SP is organising a new conference: FIVE (Fires In Vehicles). The objective of this conference is to exchange knowledge of fires in vehicles, including both road and rail vehicles. In recognition of the fact that many of the fire problems faced by these vehicles are the same, the solutions to them can also be similar.

FIVE will bring together scientists, regulators, test engineers, industry, suppliers, insurance companies and other organisations from the diverse field of transportation to discuss important fire issues. We believe that this exchange of knowledge will significantly enhance economic and safe solutions – sustainable solutions – to problems in the fire area.

FIVE will be a biannual event, the first conference of which will take place September 29 – 30, 2010 in Gothenburg, SWEDEN. Gothenburg has been selected as the opening site for this event as it is the centre of the West Coast Region, the automotive science centre of Sweden.

February 25, 2010 Von: Gregor Kategorie: Allgemein Comments Off on 4th International Symposium on Tunnel Safety and Security

The 4th International Symposium on Tunnel Safety and Security will be held in Frankfurt, Germany, 17-19th March, 2010. Tunnel safety and security is a challenge for both private and public sectors. ISTSS provides a forum over 2 1/2 days to discuss current practice and emerging trends and research in the field of tunnel safety and security. The 4th ISTSS has the following themes: risk & security, human behaviour, passive fire protection & construction, active fire protection & fire fighting, ventilation and fire dynamics.

Each day will be opened by invited Keynote Speakers, leaders in their field, providing an overview of their topic of expertise as an introduction to the themes of the day.

ICCFR2 – International Conference on Coal Fire Research, 19-21 May 2010, Berlin

February 24, 2010 Von: Karl Kategorie: Allgemein Comments Off on ICCFR2 – International Conference on Coal Fire Research, 19-21 May 2010, Berlin

The Second International Conference on Coal Fire Research (ICCFR2) will take place from 19th – 21st May 2010 in Berlin, Germany.

As a man-made hazard affecting limited natural resources in specific locales as much as the atmosphere at large, spontaneous coal seam fires are a delicate object of scientific research. Their very complex nature responds to a whole range of disciplines and necessitates a concerted interdisciplinary and international effort for effective mitigation.

The repercussions of the phenomenon spread right into the realm of society and politics. Coal fires are of relevance not only to scientists and mine managers but also to policy-makers and environmental lobbyists. Under the ever more pressing concern of global climate change, Berlin 2010 may rightly be seen in one trajectory with ongoing multilateral moves toward carbon reduction and management, including the COP15 conference in Copenhagen 2009 and its follow-up.

More information about the venue and the first call of papers are available on the official website:
