18. November 2011 – Dr. habil Walter Riess!

Vorankündigung des
3. IF-FORUM 2011 zu Mensch&Wissen(schaft)

Wie Menschen Wissen schaffen!

Jetzt steht der Termin fest: Am Freitag, den 18. November 2011, zur üblichen Zeit wird Herr

Dr. habil Walter Riess

im dritten und letzten IF-Forum des Jahres 2011 über

Wissen&Forschung heute

sprechen.

Der genaue Titel seines Vortrages steht noch nicht fest. Wir stimmen ihn beim nächsten Treffen in Zürich ab. Ich habe Walter schon einmal in Rüschlikon bei IBM Research hören dürfen. Er hat uns damals in einem ganz besonderen Vortrag klar gemacht, was Wissenschaft und Forschung heute so bedeuten.
Dr. habil. Walter Riess

Department Head, Science & Technology
IBM Research GmbH, Zurich Research Laboratory

Ich bedanke mich bei ihm ganz sehr, dass er im IF-Forum sprechen wird. Unsere „Stammgäste“ dürfen sich schon bei Claudia Toth anmelden, die Einladungen gehen in zwei Wochen raus.

Hier weitere Informationen zu Dr. habil Werner Riess:

Dr. Walter Riess studied Physics at the University of Bayreuth, Germany, where he received a Master degree (Physics) in 1987 and a Ph.D. (Physics) in 1991. From 1991 to 1995, he was leading the Polymeric Light-Emitting Device Group at the Lehrstuhl Experimental Physik II at the University of Bayreuth.

In 1996 the University of Bayreuth conferred Walter Riess the habilitation based on his thesis on polymeric light-emitting diodes.
In 1995 he joined the IBM Zurich Research Laboratory as a Research Staff Member and in 1998 Dr. Riess became manager of the Display Technology Group working on display applications of electroluminescent organic materials.

From 2004 to 2008 Dr. Riess was leading the Nanoscale Structures and Devices group where his research activities focused on ultimate and beyond CMOS devices based on semiconducting nanowires.

Since November of 2008, Dr. Riess has been the Department Head of the Science & Technology Department at the IBM Zurich Research Laboratory. Research activities in the department span: chip cooling, advanced thermal packaging, optical interconnects, silicon photonics, nanofabrication, 3D integration, self-assembly and patterning, experimental biology, magnetism, spintronics, AFM & STM imaging, III-V and Ge on silicon, semiconducting nanowires and molecular electronics.

In 2005 Dr. Riess was recognized with IBM’s Corporate Patent Portfolio Award and in 2007 he received a Special Recognition Award from the Society for Information Display for his leading contributions to the design and development of top-emitting large area active matrix organic light emitting display driven by amorphous-silicon thin film transistors.

Dr. Riess holds more than 40 patents. He is a member of the German Physical Society, the Swiss Physical Society, IEEE and the Materials Research Society.
