Nanosync Symposium December 4, 2013: It’s about time

ATV, the Danish Academy of Technical Sciences will host a half day symposium  about “Nanosynchronization: Technology and Applications” on Wednesday afternoon, December 4, from 13.00-16.30 at DELTA in Hørsholm, Denmark. The seminar targets technology professionals in a wide range of applications with a broad, inter-disciplinary approach.

Professor Charles Curry, Managing Director of Chronos Technology Ltd. UK, will be the keynote speaker with the presentation:

From Nanoseconds to Light Years – A Review of How “Time” Drives Our World

 “Time” plays a vital part in our World today.  We never have enough of it and yet, without it, nothing would get done. Charles will take the audience on a journey through “Time” where the audience will be encouraged to interact with the speaker. Case studies, photos and video clips will help to illustrate key points.

The journey will begin with a wide ranging review of the components of “Time” and time scales. These include the three essential components: Time of Day, Timing and Phase. Then more aspects of “Time” will be explored including clocks, UTC (Universal Coordinated Time), nanoseconds & light years, the speed of Light, frequency, the electromagnetic spectrum, leap seconds, bending time, relativity, gravity, time transport and more.

The journey will continue by exploring why accurate “Time” is vital in everyday life including a review of industries and applications that just would not work without “Time”. These include Telecoms, Power, Computing, Navigation, Transport, and Broadcasting.

Finally what happens when time goes wrong or gets damaged? Can we interfere with SatNav? What would happen if the Sun got “wind”? Can we make time go backwards? Does time change when we go into space?

Technologies to be discussed in the seminar

The symposium will cover broad spectrum of technologies for timing including

Applications discussed will include

  • Localization
  • Synthetic aperture imaging for acoustics, geophysical exploration, and radar
  • Telecom
  • Synchronized transportation systems
  • Structural analysis and wind turbines.
  • Smart Grid applications
  • Homeland security
  • Test and Measurement and control systems
  • Internet of things, “intelligent dust”

Presentation Schedule

Ample time will also be provided for networking and brainstorming.
