German Research Foundation Approves Establishment of Three Research Training Groups at RWTH 05/2018

The German Research Foundation, DFG, has approved three proposals for research training groups from RWTH Aachen. In October, the University will launch the groups to educate and promote highly qualified doctoral candidates. The name of the international research training group is ''Modern Inverse Problems: From Geometry and Data to Models and Applications''. The international research training group consists of researchers from the Aachen Institute of Advanced Study in Computational Engineering Science (AICES) and the Institute for Computational Engineering and Sciences (ICES) at the University of Texas at Austin. Special emphasis will be placed on inverse problems, focusing in particular on the interaction between geometry, data, models, and applications. Eleven RWTH professors are involved in the group, whose spokesperson is Professor Marek Behr, Chair of Computational Analysis of Technical Systems, CATS.

5vor12 RWTH Science Night 11/12

The “RWTH Science Night” has been taking place every year now since 2003 in the Kármán Auditorium, on the second Friday in November, and always welcomes numerous guests. The idea behind the Science Night is to present science in an unusual way and at an unusual time.

With its dynamic and engaging special events comprising interesting lectures, film screenings and musical performances which are suitable for young and old alike, the evening aims at making science graspable by providing education and fun through lively hands-on experience.

The RWTH Science Night took place at the C.A.R.L Building for the first time. It is a very impressive, new building which  gave the event the perfect atmosphere. 

AICES had it's own exhibition stand and presented a simulation wall to the young and old visitor. It was a great success and a very nice evening.

How well do we know the world under our Feet? 10/17

In many areas of the earth our knowledge is only fragmentary regarding the underground. Since we usually have no direct way to look into the underground, this idea is burdened with uncertainties. In order to make meaningful predictions, these uncertainties must be considered carefully. In the research group of Junior Professor Florian Wellmann, novel modelling and simulation methods in the area of computational geosciences are developed and adapted to address predictions in subsurface systems.  At this semesters issue of the RWTH THEMEN magazine you can read a detailed report about geoscience modeling and simulations as well as the statistical analysis of uncertainties.

Dr. Julia Kowalski coordinates glacier test as part of the EnEX Initiative 08/17

A joint glacier test was conducted by the Enceladus Explorer Initiative, EnEx, at Langenferner near Santa Caterina Valfurva in Italy between August 9 and 29, 2017. The goal of the initiative, funded by the DLR, is to prepare a space mission for the search for extraterrestrial life on the Saturnian moon Enceladus, which possesses extensive water bodies underneath a thick sheet ice. As part of the EnEx Initiative, the EnEX-DiMIce project, directed by Dr. Julia Kowalski, models the probes' melting process in ice.Two chains, measuring longer than 30 meters, were installed with temperature probes in the glacier to measure the temperature of the ice over a longer period of time.

The study “ Power Laws and the Use of Embryonic Stem Cell Lines” conducted by AICES Professor Andreas Schuppert has been published on January 2, 2013 by the journal PLOS One. The scientists’ hypothesis was that despite of the existence of a steadily increasing number of human embryonic stem cell lines, there is a preferential use for only a few lines.

Modern computational techniques are an invaluable component of every engineer's toolset and every scientist's laboratory. Yet, computational engineering and science are still much younger than engineering and science based on analytical or experimental methods alone, and can still be considered emerging disciplines.
