In recent years, research into new twodimensional (2D) materials has experienced exceptional growth and relevance given their technological potential. Just a decade after the discovery of the first two-dimensional material, graphene (Nobel Prize 2010), hundreds of 2D materials have already been synthesized with the most diverse properties. This has allowed, for the first time, to glimpse the possibility of engineering artificial materials from 2D materials with atomic precision and with tailored properties.
POLYMAT and the University of the Basque Country initiated in 2016 a series of international workshops entitled POLYMAT Spotlight.
This workshop series aims at exploring and increasing the visibility of emerging and technologically-relevant macromolecular materials.
POLYMAT Spotlight 2018 will be devoted to 2D and Porous Polymers, including synthesis, processing and applications.
The fact that graphic design outputs create human-relation systems is undeniable. These systems generate a diversity of forms and meanings that build an essential piece of our society. From this basis, design states its unavoidable willing to generate connections, sensitivity and critical awareness about those factors that influence our human environment. Precisely, is this human space which draws the attention of graphic designers’ task, taking care of their current existence and a yearning reality.
Balance y contraste con personas externas de la investigación llevada a cabo estos últimos años por el colectivo que trabaja la cuestión de la violencia política y el terrorismo en el País Vasco, y los discursos legitimadores o justificadores usados en sus entornos.
En cada mesa se junta un/una investigador/investigadora local con un/una invitado/invitada y juntos exponen y discuten los avances del conocimiento y contextualizan, comparan, contrastan y critican los mismos.
The Conference GIREP-MPTL 2018 will be focused on physics educational innovations at Primary, Secondary and University levels. Specifically, the symposium provides a forum for exchanging ideas and discussing recent developments in such areas as:
- Physics teaching and learning at Primary and Secondary Education
- Physics teaching and learning at University
- Preservice and in service physics teachers education
- Physics education in non-formal setting
- Physics into STEM teaching and learning
- ICT and multimedia in Physics Education
En el marco de la colaboración entre el Departamento de Medio Ambiente, Planificación Territorial y Vivienda del Gobierno Vasco y la UPV/EHU, para la promoción de las actividades de la Cátedra UNESCO de Paisajes Culturales y Patrimonio, se viene realizando anualmente un curso de verano que, teniendo como foco de actuación el paisaje, plantea cada año una temática específica.
The workshop Quantum Designer Physics will highlight recent advances in material systems purposefully designed for studying some of the most intriguing physical phenomena at the nanoscale. Very broadly these phenomena are related to spin, topology, and coherence, which enable the materials display quantum functionalities. Condensed Matter Physics is known for providing a rich variety of material systems in which different physics can be found and studied.
This will be a diverse summit when it comes to the content (sociolinguistics, leisure activities and culture) and the nature of the participants (researchers, activists and artists) and we are hoping to gather 70 youngsters from all over the world, hoping that this summit will encourage a future relationship. There will be lectures in the morning, whereas the afternoons will be more cultural.
This international conference invites some of the leading international specialists in the analysis of mass grave exhumations as human rights tools. Mass grave exhumations linked to human right violations, which already started in the mid-eighties, have become increasingly important worldwide in the 21st-century.
En el contexto de las celebraciones del décimo aniversario de Ekainberri, este congreso se articulará mediante ponencias de los representantes de las cuatro réplicas de cuevas con arte rupestre existentes en Europa. Cada una de ellas expondrá su experiencia en la manera en que fueron creadas, su método de gestión y su desarrollo como equipamiento museístico.
The school will cover the basics of group theory, classification of topological matter and introduce in detail different classes of topological materials. A special session about interaction effects complemented by a hands-on session is included. Moreover, 4 experimentalists will introduce the main experimental techniques and topological characterization to the participants.
Topics to be covered:
- Introduction to the Berry phase and Chern number.
- Topological classification.
The 9th international Conference “New Generation in Strongly Correlated Electrons Systems” (NGSCES 2018), sponsored by the Donostia International Physics Center (DIPC), will be held at the "Palacio Miramar", Donostia / San Sebastian, on September 3-7, 2018.
Throughout the 13th to the 16th century, Basque naval technological evolution would produce craft that came to dominate the commercial routes opened up between the Mediterranean and the European Atlantic. This process culminated with the development of the ocean-going ships, which were protagonists of the first circumnavigation and exercised their hegemony in the relations between the old and the new worlds. 2018 is the year of cultural heritage, and the antechamber of the 5th Centenary of the First Circumnavigation of the World by Juan Sebastian Elcano on board the Victoria.
Following the very successful SoS meeting of 2016 at the Miramar palace, we plan on hosting the second SoS workshop. The topic is timely and in expansion. We increase the original scope of the workshop to include the very exciting developments in quantum information thanks to the new ability of the scanning tunneling microscope (STM) to measure and control quantum spins. Then, the workshop will be devoted to the study of single magnetic moments on solid surfaces, their detection, manipulation, and encoding of quantum information.
The 9th edition of the European Congress on Energy Efficiency and Sustainability in Architecture and Urbanism (EESAP 9) and the 2ndInternational Congress on Advanced Construction (CICA 2) approach the issue of Smart Communities, which is based on the need to incorporate human scale and its nearby area as an essential variable for cities intelligent management, as a consequence of current society’s aim to achieve higher levels of life quality.
