5.ª sessão de divulgação sobre Literatura e Ciência

As Moléculas da Cor. A construção das Moléculas...

Laboratório Chimico, Museu da Ciência da Universidade de Coimbra

No âmbito do protocolo de cooperação estabelecido entre o Plano Nacional de Leitura (PNL2027) e o CEAUL, irá realizar-se a 5.ª sessão de divulgação sobre Literatura e Ciência, intitulada As Moléculas da Cor. A construção das Moléculas....

Para celebrar o Ano Internacional da Tabela Periódica falar-se-á da essência da matéria organizada, moléculas e seus átomos, e de algumas moléculas com cor que se misturam com a história da química moderna e que ainda hoje encontram palco nas mais variadas aplicações.

Dos quatro elementos aos Elementos Alquímicos, de Raquel Gonçalves, ao Volfrâmio, de Aquilino Ribeiro, e aos números aleatórios, com ou sem Lágrima de Preta, de António Gedeão, tudo nos levará a discriminar, classificar, tabelar, conjeturar, imaginar…

Das tabelas de presença e ausência, de Roger Bacon, ao fascínio da periodic table,inspirando o título Periodic Tales, The Curious Lives of the Elements, de Hugh Aldersey-Williams, falaremos de tabelas de vilões, tabelas de elementos narrativos, e de outras efabulações da loucura humana, concluindo com a inevitável referência ao químico e escritor Primo Levi, cujo livo A Tabela Periódica foi votado como o melhor livro de Ciência de sempre.​

Objectives: Lack of fertile land to feed the exponentially growing population, insufficient water availability and quality, changes in the flow of nutrients through the bio-geo-cycles (especially N and P) and climate and land use changes are impacting ecosystem

Objectives: Symbiosis is a key strategy for life on Earth.

Objectives: The goal of this course is to provide to the participants with current and practical knowledge on urban ecology, including ecological and social aspects. It aims at providing an integrated approach on urban socio-ecological systems.

Objectives: Citizen science can be part of the larger process of engaging people in new forms of interaction in scientific research, challenging scientists and citizens whilst enlarging scientific knowledge and providing learning opportunities for all part

Objectives: This course aims at: 1) exploring how scientists can use social media as tools to enhance the communication of their research and the dialogue with society, and 2) discussing the differences that exist in the work of scientists and journalists

Objectives: This course will teach how to apply the SWAT eco-hydrological model to assess the impacts of climate and associated changes on water-soil-plant interactions, and consequences to water resources, soil erosion and nutrient cycles.

Objectives: Provide students with basic knowledge of R programming, allowing them to manipulate and visualize data with R.

Objectives: Provide students with statistical knowledge and tools to manipulate, analyze and visualize biological data with R. Introduction to modeling, simulations and Bayesian statistics.

Objectives: This is a mostly practical course offering an overview on different community ecology and macroecological methods and software.

Objectives: This course introduces the field of island biogeography, a discipline that has long influenced other research areas such as macroecology, community ecology, evolution and conservation biology.

Objectives: This course offers an overview of the different ways to measure biodiversity, and provides tips for the stratification of primary biodiversity data and the construction of variables that describe its various facets.

Objectives: The course aims at enabling the participants to use different methods to measure the impacts of pollutants on ecosystems.

Objectives: Acquire knowledge regarding bioinformatic tools available to predict nucleic acid (RNA, DNA or Nucleic Acids Mimics) and protein three-dimensional structure, as well as autonomy and critical thinking in the use of those tools.

New date: 30 August - 03 September 2021.

This conference is the 22nd in the series of triennial conferences which bring together the Particle and Nuclear Physics communities.
