These building blocks may form the basis for novel technologies, including a platform for complex-oxide-based quantum computation and quantum simulation.</div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div>24 augusti 2017, 15:15</div> <div> </div> <div>Plats: Kollektorn, MC2, Chalmers</div> <div> </div> <div>Kaffe serveras kl 15:00 </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div>Prof Levy will attend the Nano community building meeting 21-23 August and visits Chalmers 23-24 August.

The Surebridge Project intends to introduce a new concept for strengthening and repair of deteriorated concrete bridges. The concept takes advantage of advanced fibre reinforced polymer (FRP) materials as reinforcement components to restore the capacity of weakened bridge superstructures.</p>​<br />The SUREBridge consortium invites interested parties <span>to a workshop <span style="display:inline-block"></span></span>to introduce the concept and show the results of numerical and experimental work performed in the project and demonstrate the potential of this method for strengthening and repair of existing concrete bridges. The workshop aims at creating a platform for engineering offices, road authorities and bridge owners to meet, interact and discuss future opportunities in the field.<br /><br /><em>The workshop will be held on 1st September 2017 between 9:00-16:00 and hosted by the department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Chalmers University of Technology. </em><br /><br />To attend the workshop please register <span>by 15th of August<span style="display:inline-block"> </span></span>: <span><a href="https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSffyOo_C4u_mAP3YDXAOue5kVpIpIdKUaUwJol7Qk4hqHkUbg/viewform?c=0&amp;w=1">https://goo.gl/forms/lGXMPgaiIRzkrpL82</a><span style="display:inline-block"></span></span><br /><br /><span><span>Background<br />At the present time, road authorities and bridge owners stand before many challenges that need to be tackled to meet the present demands on increasing service requirements (i.e. increasing axel loads), sustainability, resource efficient maintenance, etc. The Increasing number of old and deteriorated bridges on the one hand and limitations in financial resources for maintenance of bridges on the other, call for more effective, cost efficient and less disruptive strengthening and repair methods.<br /><br />SUREBridge, is a funded project within the Infravation programme which is co-funded by funding partners of the ERA-NET Plus Infravation and the European Commission under FP7. It intends to introduce a new concept for strengthening and repair of deteriorated concrete bridges. The concept takes advantage of advanced fibre reinforced polymer (FRP) materials as reinforcement components to restore the capacity of weakened bridge superstructures. The concept includes the installation of tailor-made GFRP deck panels on top of the exiting concrete deck and strengthening of the slab/girders using pre-stressed CFRP laminates in the tensile parts. <span style="display:inline-block"></span></span></span>http://www.chalmers.se/sv/institutioner/math/kalendarium/Sidor/Olle-Nerman-Symposium-2017.aspxhttp://www.chalmers.se/sv/institutioner/math/kalendarium/Sidor/Olle-Nerman-Symposium-2017.aspxOlle Nerman Symposium 2017<p>Euler, Skeppsgränd 3</p><p>​- From Branching Processes to Clinical Trials</p>​<br />The title ties together Olle Nerman’s work in Mathematical Statistics during more than three decades. Mathematical Statistics is a wide branch of mathematical sciences including both probability and statistics and not the least many applications in various other scientific disciplines. The research of Olle Nerman is a perfect illustration of this. In particular, he has been instrumental in establishing and promoting biostatistics in its various forms stretching from general population models, with applications to cell kinetics, to clinical trials and bioinformatics. His early theoretical work, which led to a fundamental understanding of the structure of general branching processes, is increasingly referred to in new publications.http://www.chalmers.se/sv/institutioner/math/kalendarium/Sidor/Workshop-on-existential-risk-to-humanity.aspxhttp://www.chalmers.se/sv/institutioner/math/kalendarium/Sidor/Workshop-on-existential-risk-to-humanity.aspxWorkshop on existential risk to humanity<p>Palmstedtsalen, Chalmersplatsen 1</p><p>​The workshop is part of the guest researcher program with the same title, but is open to all interested.</p>​<br />Prereregistration is however required; write to Olle Häggström (<a href="mailto:olleh@chalmers.se">olleh@chalmers.se</a>) no later than August 16, 2017.<br /><br /><strong>Confirmed speakers include:</strong><br />Stuart Armstrong, Future of Humanity Institute, University of Oxford: Practical methods to make safe AI<br />Seth Baum, Global Catastrophic Risk Institute: In search of the biggest risk reduction opportunities<br />Milan Cirkovic, Astronomical Observatory of Belgrade: TBA<br />David Denkenberger, Tennessee State University: Cost of non-sunlight dependent food for agricultural catastrophes<br />Robin Hanson, George Mason University: Disasters in the Age of Em<br />Karin Kuhlemann, University College London: Complexity, creeping normalcy, and conceit: Why certain catastrophic risks are sexier than others<br />James Miller, Smith College: Hints from the Fermi paradox for surviving existential risks<br />Catherine Rhodes, Centre for the Study of Existential Risk, University of Cambridge: International governance of existential risk<br />Anders Sandberg, Future of Humanity Institute, University of Oxford: Tipping points, uncertainty and systemic risks: what to do when the whole is worse than its parts?<br />Susan Schneider,University of Connecticut: Biologically-based superintelligence, machine consciousness, and existential risk<br />Phil Torres, X-Risks Institute: Agential risks: Implications for existential risk reduction<br />Roman Yampolskiy, University of Louisville: Artificial intelligence as an existential risk to humanityhttp://www.chalmers.se/sv/institutioner/see/kalendarium/Sidor/Joakim-Strandberg,-Rymd-,-geo--och-miljövetenskap.aspxhttp://www.chalmers.se/sv/institutioner/see/kalendarium/Sidor/Joakim-Strandberg,-Rymd-,-geo--och-milj%C3%B6vetenskap.aspxJoakim Strandberg, Rymd-, geo- och miljövetenskap<p>Föreläsningssal EC, EDIT trappa C, D och H, Hörsalsvägen 11, EDIT</p><p>​Titel: Inverse modelling of GNSS multipath signals</p>​Joakim Strandberg är doktorand på avdelningen för Onsala rymdobservatorium i enheten för rymdgeodesi och geodynamik.<br /><br />Diskussionsledare: Professor Kristine Larson, Department of Aerospace Engineering Sciences, University of Coloradohttp://www.chalmers.se/sv/institutioner/ace/kalendarium/Sidor/Hanna-Blomen.aspxhttp://www.chalmers.se/sv/institutioner/ace/kalendarium/Sidor/Hanna-Blomen.aspxHanna Blomén<p>Rum SB-L200, Sven Hultins gata 6</p><p>​​Pore pressure response in the uppermost part of a clay soil slope - Two case studies in the Gothenburg region</p><p><br />Abstract:<br /></p> <p></p> <div>In this research project the pore pressures in the uppermost 5 to 10 meters of clayey soils in southwestern Sweden are studied. The focus is on natural, short time variations, such as yearly variations due to precipitation, frost and evaporation. The long term benefit with the study is the ability to make better and more reliable predictions of pore pressure variations in clay slopes and thereby improving the reliability of the stability analyses. Field measurements have been performed at two sites in the greater Gothenburg area. In total 35 piezometers were installed in three slopes and they were monitored during 1.5 to 3 years. Installation depths varied between 0.5 to 49 meters, with a majority of the piezometers installed at depths less than 5 meters. The correlation between the measured pore pressures and precipitation was studied. Simulations with the computer software SEEP/W were performed in order to investigate how well the pore pressure regime in a slope can be predicted. Results from the simulations are compared with measured values, with special focus on the uppermost 5 to 10 meters. Three types of prediction levels are defined, depending on how detailed information is needed. Recommendations are given for a methodology that the practicing engineer can use when faced with the task to measure and predict the design pore pressure. </div> <div> </div> <h6 class="chalmersElement-H6">Keywords: precipitation, pore pressure, simulation, yearly variations, slope stability,clay</h6><p></p>http://www.chalmers.se/sv/centrum/konstruktionscentrum/kalendarium/Sidor/Fibre-reinforced-concrete-and-durability.aspxhttp://www.chalmers.se/sv/centrum/konstruktionscentrum/kalendarium/Sidor/Fibre-reinforced-concrete-and-durability.aspxSeminarium - Fibre reinforced concrete and durability<p>SB-S393, vån 3, Sven Hultins Gata 6</p><p>​Konstruktionscentrum välkomnar till ett spännande seminarium som samlar några av de främsta experterna inom fiberförstärkt betong och hållfasthet!</p>​<span>​Seminariet hålls i samband med Carlos Gil Berrocals disputation inom ämnet (14 september)<span></span> <h5 class="chalmersElement-H5"><span>Preliminärt program: </span></h5> <p><span>13:00<span> </span>Introduction<span> - </span>Karin Lundgren, Chalmers University of Technology</span></p> <p><span>13:10<span> </span>Cracking and durability in FRC - <span></span>Giovanni Plizzari, University of Brescia</span></p> <p><span>13:40<span>  </span>Corrosion of reinforced concrete structures: from the diagnosis to the electrochemical repair <br /> Véronique Bouteiller, IFSTTAR </span></p> <p><span>14:10<span></span> <em>Henrik Stang, Technical University of Denmark</em></span><span> <span></span><span style="display:inline-block"></span></span></p> <p><span>14:40<span>  </span>Coffee Break</span></p> <p><span>15:00<span>  </span>Long term field exposures of cracked steel fibre reinforced shotcrete - Erik Nordström,</span><span> <span lang="EN-US">KTH Royal Institute of Technology / SWECO</span></span><span></span></p> <p><span lang="EN-US">15:30<span> </span></span><span lang="EN-US">New advances on the design and quality control of FRC structural elements</span><span lang="EN-US"></span><span lang="EN-US"> - Albert de la Fuente, Universitat Politecnica de Catalunya</span></p> <p><span lang="EN-US">16:00<span> </span></span><span>Fiber Reinforced Concrete, Chalmers research - </span><span><span><span lang="EN-US">Ingemar Löfgren, Chalmers University of Technology<span style="display:inline-block"></span></span></span></span><span lang="EN-US"></span><span></span><span></span><span></span><span></span><span></span><span></span><span></span><span></span><span></span><span></span><span></span><span></span><span></span><span></span></p></span><span><p><span lang="EN-US">16:30 <span></span><em>Speakers pendent of confirmation</em></span><span lang="EN-US"></span></p></span><span></span>http://www.chalmers.se/sv/institutioner/ace/kalendarium/Sidor/Making-Effect.aspxhttp://www.chalmers.se/sv/institutioner/ace/kalendarium/Sidor/Making-Effect.aspxMaking Effect<p>ArkDes and KTH School of Architecture</p><p>​Concluding symposium &#39;Making Effect&#39; celebrating 5 years of research by the Strong Research Environments: &#39;Architecture in Effect&#39; and &#39;Architecture in the Making&#39;, at ArkDes and KTH School of Architecture, 14-16 September, and exhibition, 14-17 September, at ArkDes!</p>​​More information and the program will soon be available under: <a href="https://www.architecturemakingeffect.se/">architecturemakingeffect.se</a><br />Prior to the symposium, a PhD workshop is held, on September 13, 9.00-18.00, at the KTH School of Architecture, with Andrea Mubi Brighenti, Mattias Kärrholm, Kajsa Lawaczeck Körner, Jennifer Mack, Jesper Magnusson, Eja Pedersen, Gunnar Sandin and Albena Yaneva.<br /><br />The workshop is part of the PhD course Tendencies, but a few places can be given to interested doctoral students.

Kom till oss och var nyfiken! För fjärde året arrangeras Aha-festivalen på Chalmers. Festivalen utforskar mötet mellan konst och vetenskap vid ett tredagarsevenemang med workshops, föreläsningar, diskussioner, musik- och dansuppträdanden. Avsikten är att utvidga vetandets gränser genom kunskapsbildande experiment. Vi vill undersöka förhållandet mellan konst och vetenskap, den grund högskolande verksamhet bygger på. Vi bjuder in forskare och artister från olika discipliner samt studenter och intresserad allmänhet, att dela med sig av sina erfarenheter och berika våra olika kunskapsområden.</p><div>​Temat i år är ’Autonomy’, där vi utforskar bland annat autonoma system, konstens och forskningens frihet och var vi som människor börjar och slutar.</div> <div> </div> <div>Värdar är institutionerna för arkitektur och fysik.</div> <div> </div> <div>Alla är välkomna och det är fri entré till AHA-festivalen.

Sedan kom det att tillämpas under striderna om religionsfrihet under 1600-talet. Då avsågs med ”autonomi” främst förnuftets autonomi, dvs. frihet från religiösa auktoriteter. Genom Kant, som tog upp det i både sin teoretiska och sin praktiska filosofi, kom det in i den filosofiska diskussionen. Under 1800-talet kom begreppet att användas i debatten om konstens ställning och värde (”l’art pour l’art”), och under 1900-talet kom det till användning i pedagogiken och i etiska analyser, där man åter anknöt till bl.a. idéer hos Kant. Begreppet har också använts i den rättsvetenskapliga, forskningspolitiska och vetenskapsteoretiska debatten.</div> <div> </div> <h2 class="chalmersElement-H2">Program</h2> <div>20/11 Dag 1: Kan en robot vara nyfiken?</div> <div>21/11 Dag 2: Kan nyfikenhet vara farligt?</div> <div>22/11 Dag 3: Kan nyfikenhet ändra naturlagarna?</div>http://www.chalmers.se/sv/om-chalmers/kalendarium/Sidor/Den-6e-Utvecklingskonferensen.aspxhttp://www.chalmers.se/sv/om-chalmers/kalendarium/Sidor/Den-6e-Utvecklingskonferensen.aspxDen 6:e Utvecklingskonferensen<p>Chalmers tekniska högskola</p><p>​I november ägen den 6:e Utvecklingskonferensen för Sveriges ingenjörsutbildningar rum vid Chalmers tekniska högskola.</p>http://www.chalmers.se/sv/centrum/dricks/kalendarium/Sidor/FoI-for-sakert-dricksvatten.aspxhttp://www.chalmers.se/sv/centrum/dricks/kalendarium/Sidor/FoI-for-sakert-dricksvatten.aspxForskning och innovation för säkert dricksvatten<p>Piperska muren, Scheeleg.14, Stockholm</p><p>​Konferensen för dig som vill ta del av den senaste utvecklingen i Sverige för att säkerställa att säkert dricksvatten av god kvalitet levereras dygnet runt.

This event will offer the opportunity for scholars from Europe, as well as from around the world, to contribute to the exchange of experiences, ideas and knowledge regarding planning in the 21st century, in particular in relation to the congress theme: MAKING SPACE FOR HOPE.</p><div>​Planning is one of the activities – on different levels and in different contexts – striving for better futures. We live in dark times – climate crisis, economic regression, war and conflicts of political, ethnical and religious reasons. What used to be unrecognized by traditional planning debates can be useful to respond to contemporary planning problems. In-between spaces, insurgencies and untold stories can be rethought and re-explored to energize planning debates and practice. The challenges should be considered as triggers for transformations to a sustainable future. Planning should contribute to MAKING SPACE FOR HOPE.</div> <div> </div> <h2 class="chalmersElement-H2">Scientific and social programme</h2> <div>• Invited keynote speakers</div> <div>• Approximately 20 paper tracks</div> <div>• Round table sessions</div> <div>• Poster presentations</div> <div>• Thematic group meetings</div> <div>• Mobile workshops</div> <div>• Congress dinner</div> <div>• Artistic interventions</div> <div>• …and more</div> <div> </div> <h2 class="chalmersElement-H2">Important dates</h2> <div>• Call for abstract: October 2017</div> <div>• Abstract submission deadline: January 15, 2018</div> <div>• Notification abstracts: February 28, 2018</div> <div>• Early bird registration deadline: April 30, 2018</div> <div>• Full paper/extended abstract submission deadline: May 15, 2018 </div> <div>• PhD Workshop in Karlskrona: July 5-8, 2018</div> <div>• AESOP 2018 Congress in Gothenburg: July 10-14, 2018</div> <div>• Post Congress Tour, Stockholm metropolitan region: July 16-18, 2018 </div> <div> </div> <h2 class="chalmersElement-H2">Pre-congress PhD workshop</h2> <div>The PhD workshop will be held on July 5-8, 2018 on an island in the archipelago outside Karlskrona, Sweden.
