HITEC Day June 5, 2013 in Cologne

May 29, 2013. The next HITEC Day takes place on Wednesday, June 5, 2013 at the University of Cologne.

HITEC Days are an inherent part of the graduate school Helmholtz Interdisciplinary Doctoral Training in Energy and Climate Research (HITEC). They devote a whole day to a method or a scientific topic with lectures and discussions. The methodological days serve to encourage scientific interdisciplinarity and will enable the PhD students to extend their range of methods with respect to their own scientific work. HITEC Days always end with a ‘Get together’, some snacks and drinks. HITEC Days are open for HITEC Ph.D. students and other interested young scientists. http://www.fz-juelich.de/hitec/DE/_SharedDocs/HITECProgramm05_06_13.pdf?__blob=publicationFile

Summer School "Inverse Problems and Partial Differential Equations" Bremen

May 6, 2013. We would like to invite you to the Summer School “Inverse Problems and Partial Differential Equations”, which takes place Oct 7-11, 2013 in Bremen, Germany.

This summer school considers the analytical and numerical treatment of inverse problems for partial differential equations as, e.g., the time-harmonic or time-dependent wave equation or the Laplace equation. We assume that participants are familiar with basic concepts in numerical and functional analysis and know basic theory on partial differential equations and inverse problems. The school is particularly interesting for advanced Master students, PhD students and PostDocs in mathematics or related subjects.

Lecturers are Thorsten Hohage (University of Göttingen, Germany), Patrick Joly (INRIA Saclay, France), Juliette Leblond (INRIA Sophia-Antipolis, France), Peter Maass (University of Bremen, Germany), Peter Monk (University of Delaware, US), Karim Ramdani (INRIA Nancy, France), Andreas Rieder (KIT, Germany), Samuli Siltanen (University of Helsinki, Finland)

Organizers: Houssem Haddar (INRIA Saclay, France) and Armin Lechleiter (University of Bremen, Germany)

Please register here before July 15, 2013. More information can be found on http://www.math.uni-bremen.de/zetem/ip-school2013

Symposium "Light Scattering: Simulation and Inversion"

May 6, 2013. Dear Colleague, please note the Symposium “Light Scattering: Simulation and inversion”, which takes place at the University of Bremen, Bremen, 27. + 28. May 2013

At the heart of many modern industrial applications is fast and accurate numerical solution of inverse light scattering problems. For example, in metrology inverse scattering techniques are used in applications ranging from the small-scale optical characterisation of micro- and nanostructures to large-scale radar imaging.

Light scattering more and more becomes an indispensible tool in this context. Particle surface contaminations have to be detected, sized and characterized. For aerosol characterization spectroscopic methods and Lidar are used. Soot aggregates in an industrial or environmental setting have to be characterized based on measured scattering characteristics.

A common challenge for inverse problems in applications is the need for a thorough theoretical understanding of the problem and the difficulties, as well as fast and reliable numerical algorithms for inversion. The aim of this workshop is to bring together researchers working on different aspects of light scattering and inverse problems from theory to computations and real-life applications.

PIERS (Progress in Electromagnetics Research Symposium) 2013

April 16, 2013. This is to cordially invite you to participate in PIERS (Progress in Electromagnetics Research Symposium) 2013 Stockholm (August 12-15), where microwave meets the light http://www.piers.org/piers2013Stockholm/.

Both microwave and lightwave are governed by the same Maxwell's equations. However, many people in optics rarely read papers in microwave journals and “reinvented the wheel” from time to time, while many people in microwave rarely read papers in optics journals and keep “reinventing the wheel”. It is therefore very worthwhile to encourage the microwave community and the lightwave community to meet and talk (or listen) to each other in a conference. In PIERS 2013 Stockholm, photonics & optics take about 40%, microwave (incl. RF and mm wave) takes another 40%, and the rest is for general electromagnetics. PIERS 2013 Stockholm is a great event as a Family Reunion of Electromagnetics, spanning the classical and quantum worlds.

Progress in Electromagnetics Research Symposium (PIERS) provides an international forum for reporting progress and recent advances in the modern development of electromagnetic theory and its new and exciting applications since 1989. Topics include radiation, propagation, diffraction, scattering, guidance, resonance, power, energy and force issues, and all other modern developments, with spectra ranging from statics to RF, microwave, lightwave, and beyond.

Between Earth Information, Technology and Social Sciences

April 15, 2013. As part of the activities of the FP7 DRIHM2US project (www.drihm2us.eu), i like to draw your attention to the following event organized in the framework of the “INSPIRE 2013: The Green Renaissance” in Florence:

“Information for Innovation and Socioeconomic Development” International Workshop at the crossroad of Earth Information, Technology and Social Sciences, June 23 - 24, 2013, Florence, Italy

http://inspire.jrc.ec.europa.eu/events/conferences/inspire_2013/#events

This workshop is the latest in a series of workshops on the “Socioeconomic Benefits of Environmental Information”, which have been held alternatively in Europe and the United States. The current two day workshop will take place in Florence, Italy, on June 23 and 24, 2013, as a pre-conference event to the INSPIRE conference.

The focus of the previous workshops was on methodologies and use case development. With this workshop, we intend to broaden the focus to include the following themes:

Information (Earth Observation, geospatial data, community generated data) as a driver for economic and social development, including measures of well-being that move beyond GDP as an indicator

Economic impact of innovations stemming from Open Data and the re-use of Public Sector Information Importance of communications to reach across disciplines from scientists to citizen-scientists to end-users Keynote addresses will highlight the state of the art, in this multi-disciplinary field and introduce the three themes above. The workshop will have a combination of invited presentations, submitted papers, and panel discussions on these themes. In addition, use cases addressing quantitative results are invited. Recommendations for a path forward will be presented at the conclusion of the second day.

This event is the next step in building a multi-disciplinary community of practice to further support the use of geospatial information as a socioeconomic driver. The workshop will provide opportunities to network with both developers and users of geospatial information to encourage long-term mutual support.

To submit an abstract (500 words) for an oral presentation: http://inspire-forum.jrc.ec.europa.eu/start/www/SBEI/
