Title of report: On the Lateral line system of Fishes
Lecturer:Prof. Dr. Horst Bleckmann
Time: 13：30, 09 Nov.
Address:Room A101, College of Fisheries and Life Science
About the lecturer:
Prof. Dr. Horst Bleckmann,
former Director (for two consecutive terms) and Professor Emeritus of the Institute of Zoology of the University of Bonn, is a world-renowned expert in fish electro-neurophysiology, and an internationally-recognized authority in animal sensory system, fluid mechanics and fish lateral line sensory system. In the past 20 or 30 years, he has directed and participated in many relevant scientific research programs sponsored by German and European funds, taken part in the decision-making and direction of multiple important international cooperation programs, and published more than 100 papers and monographs, including many papers published on Science and Nature; he has also participated in the compilation of three very important collected papers on fish lateral line sensory system in recent years. At present, he mainly focuses on animal hydrodynamic sensory theories and models, and is one of the initiators and forerunners in the fields of neurotic electrophysiology, biomathematics models and cross-over bionic researches and one of the presenters of Sino-Germany Symposium on Bionics in Munich, Germany.
Professor Dr. Bleckmann received Ph.D degree from Giezen University in 1979, and served as Associate Professor at the University of Frankfurt from 1981 to 1992 (Postdoctor at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography in California of the US from 1985 to 1987) and as Professor at Darmstadt University from 1992 to 1994; since 1994, he has been Professor Emeritus at the University of Bonn. He has won many awards and honors, including Presiding Expert of German Research Foundation from 2003 to 2011, Leopoldina Academician in 2006, Academician of the Austrian Academy of Sciences in 2007, Lifetime Achievement Award of German Zoological Society in 2012, Prototype Nature Award of the German Ministry of Education, Science and Culture, etc.
Title of report 2: Biomimetic of the lateral lines
Lecturer:Dr. Adrian Klein
Time: 16：00, 09 Nov.
Address: Room A101, College of Fisheries and Life Science
About the lecturer:
Dr. Adrian Klein, researcher at the Institute of Zoology of the University of Bonn, is an expert in fish lateral line sensory system-based researches on neurotic electrophysiology, biomathematics models and cross-over bionics, and also a young leader in these fields. His doctoral dissertation for the first time employed optics-based experimental molding to study the transient spatial changes, receptor and “noise” filtering of fluid mechanics, and successfully introduced mathematical models on this basis to interpret and simulate the relationship between the lateral line forms of fishes in the natural world and their ecological behaviors. He has published many papers, and provided a theoretical model basis for “robotic fish”, “manmade lateral line receptor”, etc.
As Doctor of the University of Bonn since 2012, he is a student of Dr. Bleckmann, and is currently a main researcher of the laboratory, responsible for the design and technical R&D of fluid receptor and other German national scientific research programs.
