This publication includes the papers offered on the "First overseas Sympo st sium on Aerogels (1 ISA)", held in September 1985 at. the collage of Wiirzburg, Fed. Rep. of Germany. It was once the 1st meet.ing of this type, wit.h contributors from numerous eu count.ries, the U.S. of the US, Canada, South the USA, and Africa. The assembly used to be interdisciplinary, with lots of the members being physicists, chemists or fabric scientists ei ther from universities or from commercial learn institutes. allow me attempt to shed a few gentle upon the category of gear the symposium was once approximately: Aerogels are tremendous porous high-tech fabrics, consisting ei ther of silica, alumina, zirconia, stannic or tungsten oxide or combinations of those oxides. because of their excessive porosity (up t.o 99%!) and t.heir huge internal floor, aerogels function specifically energetic catalysts or as catalytic subst.rates, as adsorbents, fillers, reinforcement brokers, pigments and gellifying brokers. Silica aerogels as translucent or obvious superinsulating fillers in window structures may perhaps aid to significantly decrease thermal losses in home windows and to enhance the power stability in passive sun structures. Aerogels even have fas cinating acoustic houses - the sound pace may be as little as a hundred m/s! The creation of aerogels starts off with the managed conversion of a sol right into a gel: the expansion of clusters or polymer chains from a chemical answer, the cross-linking of those basic entities and the formation of a coherent community - nonetheless embedded in a liquid.

TheexplosivegrowthoftheInternetandtheWebhavecreatedanever-growing call for for info structures, and ever-growing demanding situations for info platforms Engineering. The sequence of meetings on complicated info S- tems Engineering (CAiSE) used to be introduced in Scandinavia by way of Janis Bubenko and Arne Solvberg in 1989, turned a major ecu convention, and used to be held each year in significant ecu websites during the Nineties. Now, in its 14th year,CAiSEwasheldforthe?rsttimeoutsideEurope,showcasinginternational researchon info structures and their engineering. no longer unusually, this 12 months the convention loved extraordinary awareness. In overall, the convention got 173 paper submissions, the top quantity ever for a CAiSE convention. of these, forty two have been approved as usual papers and 26 as brief (poster) papers. moreover, the convention obtained 12 proposals for workshops of which eight have been authorized, whereas four tutorials have been chosen from 15 submissions. The technical application used to be prepare by means of a global committee of eighty one specialists. In overall, 505 studies have been submitted, with each member of the committeecontributing.Decisionsonallsubmissionswerereachedataprogram committee assembly in Toronto on January 26-27,2002. Workshop and instructional proposals have been dealt with individually by means of committees chaired via Patrick Martin (workshops), and Jarek Gryz and Richard Paige (tutorials). we want to expand an outstanding “THANK YOU!” to all participants of this system and organizing committees for his or her volunteer contributions of time and exp- tise. the truth that such a lot of busy (and famous!) humans took the difficulty to assist uswiththeorganizationofthisconferenceandtheformationofitstechnicalp- gram speaks good for the way forward for CAiSE and the ?eld of data platforms Engineering.

Advanced international locations have proven an expanding convergence of their monetary functionality and technological depth, with a relative decline of the placement of the us and the emergence of the eu and jap economies. The Technological Specialization ofAdvanced Countries strikes past mixture styles and examines the sectoral constitution of technological actions, the method of specialization, and the impression on nationwide functionality.
signs of know-how and of clinical job are tested including different financial and R & D info, delivering a wealth of empirical proof at the actions, and components of power and weak point of person nations. the quantity of disaggregated information supplied, and the review provided at the country of artwork in technological know-how and know-how symptoms, make The Technological Specialization ofAdvanced Countries a big reference paintings.
an outline of the fields of nationwide attempt is equipped and a distinct learn is dedicated to the fields of better leading edge dynamism the place patenting has grown such a lot quickly. over the years, nations have focused their technological efforts within the fields in their better power, below the strain of accelerating overseas festival and the proprietary nature of understand how. Conversely, in technological know-how there has in general been a lessen within the measure of specialization, with nations coming into new fields of analysis, profiting from the open circulate of clinical wisdom.
For technology and expertise coverage, the findings of The TechnologicalSpecialization of complex Countries recommend that nationwide efforts may be mixed with the starting to be overseas integration. The goals of preserving tested parts of power and of constructing new specializations in rising fields may be balanced, and a extra selective coverage on the sectoral point is advised.
