In particular, new crosslinking concepts based on polyethylene copolymers, the use of thermoplastic polyolefin blends as well as additives that allow to reduce the electrical conductivity of the insulation material will be explored. Finally, the presentation will reflect on sustainability aspects, which play an increasing role in the development of new HVDC insulation materials.</span><br /></div> <div><span style="background-color:initial"><br /></span></div> <div><span style="background-color:initial"><div><br /></div> <div><br /></div> <div><img src="/en/areas-of-advance/materials/Calendar/PublishingImages/PO-Hagstrand.jpg" alt="Per-Ola Hagstrand" class="chalmersPosition-FloatLeft" style="margin:5px;width:258px;height:242px" /><strong>Per-Ola Hagstrand, </strong><span style="background-color:initial"><strong>I</strong></span><span style="background-color:initial"><strong>nnovation &amp; Technology, Borealis AB.</strong></span></div> <div><span style="background-color:initial">Polyolefin materials can and will play a vital role in the transition towards a more sustainable society. For example, Germany will use high voltage direct-current (HVDC) power cables insulated with next generation cross-linked low density polyethylene (XLPE) to transfer a vast amount of renewable energy from north to south with minimal losses. <br />This will facilitate Germany’s green-energy transition (“Energiewende”). The presentation will give an overview of the development of next generation XLPE-based insulation material, which can be used up to a world record operating voltage of 640 kilovolt (kV).  </span><br /></div></span></div> <div><br /></div></span></div> Ethics with Devdatt Dubhashi<p>Online, register to receive the link</p><p>​Dangers, known and unknown with AI and Big Tech, and how to combat them</p>​<img src="/SiteCollectionImages/Centrum/CHAIR/events/Devdatt%20Dubhashi.jpg" alt="Photo of Devdatt Dubhashi" class="chalmersPosition-FloatRight" style="margin:5px" /><br />Many people have recently commented on the possible dangers of AI and Big Tech. While some of these claims are misguided, others point to a real and immediate danger to wider society and the economy. We will discuss some of these dangers, especially those highlighted in the speech of Nobel peace prize winner Maria Ressa and the Facebook whistleblower Frances Haugen’s testimony to the US Congress. We will discuss how these dangers could be combatted.<br /><br />Devdatt Dubhashi is a professor of data science and AI at the Department of Computer Science and Engineering, Chalmers.<br /><br /><a href="" target="_blank"><img class="ms-asset-icon ms-rtePosition-4" src="/_layouts/images/icgen.gif" alt="" />Register here to receive the link to the seminar</a> Annual Meeting European Society for Hyperthermic Oncology<p>Wallenberg Konferenscenter, Medicinaregatan 20A</p><p>​On14-17 September 2022 the 34th Annual Meeting European Society for Hyperthermic Oncology will take place in Gothenburg with associate professor Hana Dobsicek Trefna from Chalmers as conference chair.  ​​​</p>​​<span style="background-color:initial;font-weight:700">​​</span><div class="text-normal page-content"><div><span style="font-weight:700;background-color:initial"><a href=""><img src="/SiteCollectionImages/Areas%20of%20Advance/Health/Udda%20format/ESHO2022-Flyer_webb.jpg" class="chalmersPosition-FloatRight" alt="" style="margin:5px" /></a></span><span style="font-weight:700;background-color:initial">Theme</span></div> <div><span style="background-color:initial">Research and development in hyperthermic treatment of cancer.<br /><br /></span></div> <div><span style="background-color:initial"><span style="font-weight:700">Conference chair</span><br /></span><span style="background-color:initial"><a href="/en/Staff/Pages/hana-dobsicek-trefna.aspx">Hana Dobsicek Trefna</a>, </span><span style="background-color:initial">associate professor </span><span style="background-color:initial">in the Biomedical </span><span style="background-color:initial">electromagnetics research group at the department of Electrical Engineering at Chalmers.</span></div> <div><span style="background-color:initial"><br />She is an</span><span style="background-color:initial"> expert in systems and focusing algorithms for microwave hyperthermia treatment of deep seated tumors.
