The organizers will be back with a new date during autumn 2020. Professor Anne L’Huillier, Lund University, Sweden is the winner of the Gothenburg Lise Meitner Award 2020. She will visit the Gothenburg Physics Centre to receive the award and give the traditional award lecture in honour of the Austrian-Swedish physicist Lise Meitner. ​ Professor L’Huillier receives the award “For pioneering contributions to attosecond laser science and technology”. ​</p><img src="/SiteCollectionImages/Centrum/Fysikcentrum/Gothenburg%20Lise%20Meitner%20Award/Lise%20Meitner%202020/150_Anne_H_.jpg" class="chalmersPosition-FloatRight" alt="" style="margin:5px;width:110px;height:146px" />Professor Anne L'Huillier has been at the forefront of ultrafast laser science since its inception, with her pioneering contributions to high-order harmonic light generation, which is a base technology for attosecond science. Her research has helped foster the field of attosecond science, allowing scientists to visualize the movements of electrons in light-induced processes, which can be used to understand chemical reactions on the atomic level.​<br /><br /><a href="" target="_blank"><img class="ms-asset-icon ms-rtePosition-4" src="/_layouts/images/ichtm.gif" alt="" />Read more about<strong> </strong><span style="font-weight:300"><strong>Professor L'Huillier's</strong> </span>research​</a><br /><a href="/en/centres/gpc/activities/lisemeitner/Pages/default.aspx" target="_blank"><img class="ms-asset-icon ms-rtePosition-4" src="/_layouts/images/ichtm.gif" alt="" />Read more about The Gothenburg Lise Meitner Award and previous laureates​​</a> The 2nd International Conference on Negative CO2 Emissions<p>Chalmers Student Union Building, Chalmers Campus Johanneberg</p><p>​The 2nd International Conference on Negative CO2 Emissions will be held May 18-21, 2021, at Chalmers University of Technology, Gothenburg, Sweden. The purpose of this conference series is to bring together a wide range of scientists, experts and stakeholders, in order to engage in various aspects of research relating to negative CO2 emissions. This will include various negative emission technologies, climate modelling, climate policies and incentives. The main topics of the conference, around which the sessions will be built, include:</p><ul><li>​<span style="font-size:14px"><span style="background-color:initial">BECCS</span></span></li> <li><span style="font-size:14px">Biospheric storage</span></li> <li><span style="font-size:14px">Cross-cutting sessions</span></li> <li><span style="font-size:14px">Direct air capture</span></li> <li><span style="font-size:14px">Enhanced weathering</span></li> <li><span style="font-size:14px">Modeling</span></li> <li><span style="background-color:initial">Ocean alkalization</span></li></ul> <span></span> <div><span style="font-size:14px"></span><span></span><div><span style="font-size:14px"><strong>Background</strong></span></div> <div><span style="font-size:14px">The objective of the Paris Agreement is to limit global warming to well below 2ºC, and to pursue efforts to limit the temperature increase to 1.5ºC. The carbon budget is the amount of carbon dioxide that we can emit while still limiting global temperature rise to a given level, for example 1.5ºC.</span></div></div> <div><br /></div> <div><span style="background-color:initial;font-size:14px"></span><strong>Read more and sign up to the conference:</strong><br /><a href=""><img class="ms-asset-icon ms-rtePosition-4" src="/_layouts/images/icgen.gif" alt="" />The 2nd International Conference on Negative CO2 Emissions​</a><br /></div>
