The International 2017 IEEE Photovoltaic Specialists Conference (PVSC-44)

( Association for Chemoreception Sciences) Solar energy is globally one of the most important sustainable energy technologies at present with nearly 1.4 million solar installations in the United States alone. With such strong interest, it is our pleasure to publicly announce the international 2017 IEEE Photovoltaic Specialists Conference (PVSC-44) taking place in the capital of the United States, Washington DC from June 25 to June 30, 2017 at the Marriott Wardman Park Hotel.

JSM 2017 brings expertise, insight, analysis to port

( American Statistical Association) The world's largest annual gathering of statisticians and data scientists will head to Baltimore this July for the Joint Statistical Meetings, which will feature more than 3,000 presentations by statistical experts and researchers. Topics will include everything from new developments and advances in statistical methodology to thought-provoking analysis and discussion of hot topics like reproducibility in research, misleading use of statistics and the crossroads of statistics and politics.

NASA sees quick development of Hurricane Dora

( NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) The fourth tropical cyclone of the Eastern Pacific Ocean season formed on June 25 and by June 26 it was already a hurricane. NASA-NOAA's Suomi NPP satellite passed over Dora on June 25 when it was a tropical storm and the next day it became the first hurricane of the season.

Moisture-responsive 'robots' crawl with no external power source

( The Optical Society) Using an off-the-shelf camera flash, researchers turned an ordinary sheet of graphene oxide into a material that bends when exposed to moisture. They then used this material to make a spider-like crawler and claw robot that move in response to changing humidity without the need for any external power.

Beyond bananas: 'Mind reading' technology decodes complex thoughts

( Carnegie Mellon University) This latest research led by CMU's Marcel Just builds on the pioneering use of machine learning algorithms with brain imaging technology to "mind read." The findings indicate that the mind's building blocks for constructing complex thoughts are formed by the brain's various sub-systems and are not word-based.

NAWI Graz researchers measure light fields in 3-D

( Graz University of Technology) Researchers from TU Graz and the University of Graz present the new method of 3-D-plasmon tomography in Nature Communications.

Neuron-integrated nanotubes to repair nerve fibers

( Scuola Internazionale Superiore di Studi Avanzati) Carbon nanotubes exhibit interesting characteristics rendering them particularly suited to the construction of special hybrid devices -- consisting of biological issue and synthetic material -- planned to re-establish connections between nerve cells, for instance at spinal level, lost on account of lesions or trauma. This is the result of a piece of research published on the scientific journal Nanomedicine: Nanotechnology, Biology, and Medicine.

VTT's miniature hyperspectral camera launched to space in Aalto-1 satellite

( VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland) VTT's small and lightweight hyperspectral camera was successfully launched to space in Aalto-1 nanosatellite on June 23, 2017. Scalable sensing technology offers opportunities for new SmallSat-based services.

Twitter-monitoring system detects riots far quicker than police reports

( Cardiff University) Social media can be an invaluable source of information for police when managing major disruptive events, new research from Cardiff University has shown.

ECS and Toyota announce fellowship winners for projects in green energy technology

( The Electrochemical Society) The ECS Toyota Young Investigator Fellowship Selection Committee has chosen three winners who will receive $50,000 fellowship awards each for projects in green energy technology.
