7th Jülich Lecture
"Feeding 10 Billion with Less"

Human numbers and demands are growing. Per capita availability of arable land and irrigation water is shrinking. There is an urgent need for scientific advancement and implementation of measures to mitigate the adverse impact of climate change on food and livelihood security. This Jülich Lecture will address issues and options for meeting one of the most urgent challenges facing mankind – "How to feed 10 billion with less" with Prof. M.S. Swaminathan and Prof. Joachim von Braun.

6th Jülich Lecture
"The AMS Experiment on the International Space Station"

The Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer (AMS) is a high precision general-purpose particle physics detector that has been constructed in the past twelve years by a group of 600 scientists and engineers from 16 countries for the operation on board of the International Space Station (ISS). In May 2011 AMS was launched with the last flight of the Space Shuttle Endeavour and installed on the ISS. The principal investigator Prof. Dr. Samuel C.C. Ting will give an insigt into this project.

"Delete: Die Tugend des Vergessens in digitalen Zeiten"

Prof. Dr. Viktor Mayer-Schönberger (Oxford Internet Institut, University of Oxford) fokussiert seine Forschung auf die Rolle der Information in einer vernetzten Wirtschaft. Anders als Bibliothekare, die Informationen für die Ewigkeit archivieren möchten, plädiert Professor Mayer-Schönberger in seinem Festvortrag für ein Verfallsdatum der Daten. „Delete: Die Tugend des Vergessens in digitalen Zeiten“, ist der Titel seines Vortrages.

3rd Jülich Lecture
"Electron Microscopy at the Frontiers of Materials Science"

Microscopy represents one of the major breakthroughs of modern science. Since the early 17th century, scientists have made use of microscopes to make visible what was until then inaccessible to the human eye. The Ernst Ruska-Centre (ER-C) for Microscopy and Spectroscopy with Electrons specializes in the further development of these imaging techniques. Prof. Dr. Knut Urban, Prof. Dr. Joachim Mayer and Prof. Dr. Rafal E. Dunin-Borkowski will give an insight into this topic.

2nd Jülich Lecture
"Bringing Social Sciences to Energy"

Prof. Dr. Steven E. Koonin (Science and Technology Policy Agency, Washington D.C.) will be speaking in the lecture theatre of the Central Library, Forschungszentrum Jülich. Technology development alone will not transform energy systems at the pace or scale required; societal issues (economics, behavior, politics, beliefs) are of equal importance. Prof. Koonin will discuss technical and organizational steps that can be taken to more effectively incorporate social science thinking into energy research and policy.
