IPv6 Contest: Fresh ideas for the internet of the next generation

20.07.2011
The German IPv6 Council has started the third international IPv6 application contest on the new generation internet network. Invited are innovative ideas based on the new internet standard IPv6.

The objectives of the contest are the generation of ideas and applications, which help determine how to propagate IPv6 deployment for the next generation internet. Founded in late 2007 in Potsdam, the IPv6 Council will award the best ideas and implementations with cash prizes up to 10,000 euros. The deadline for submissions ends on October 31, 2011.

The winners will be awarded in the course of the fourth German IPv6 Summit 2011, which will take place on December 1 and 2. The high level conference will be held in the headline theme „Online on the Road – The new IPv6 standard as the driving force of mobile communication“.

„The competition wants to open new opportunities for developers and other interested parties to gain further experience with the new internet protocol”, explains Prof. Christoph Meinel. The Director of the Hasso Plattner Institute (http://www.hpi.uni-potsdam.de) is the owner of the HPI-Chair for Internet Technologies and Systems as well as chairman of the German IPv6 Council. Criteria for the assessment are how and to what extent the contributions promote and popularize IPv6 and how they provide a new internet experience.

There are three major awards: Applications and Implementations, Student and Ideas, and Best Practice. The application is open to companies, teams and individuals of all nationalities. For more information please refer to: http://www.ipv6council.de/contest2011/vertikal_menu/contest_at_a_glance.html.

Last year’s winner was Gert Döring from Munich. He has developed a software solution that makes the configuration of virtual private networks much easier. Whenever transporting private data from a server to many other client machines over a public network, his new concept reduces administrative server overhead significantly, while the settings on the client machines are made automatically.

Short profile IPv6 council
The German IPv6 Council is the German national association of the international IPv6 Forum, consisting of more than 50 national committees. The goal is to unite all national stakeholders from industry, research, policy and management, who are concerned with the improved technical standards for data transmission on the internet of the next generation, and efficiently push the deployment of the new internet protocol. This will be achieved by raising the awareness of end consumers and industry, providing a secure internet and by technological improvements. The committee consists currently of 29 representatives from government, business and science.

Im Focus: Powerful IT security for the car of the future – research alliance develops new approaches

The more electronics steer, accelerate and brake cars, the more important it is to protect them against cyber-attacks. That is why 15 partners from industry and academia will work together over the next three years on new approaches to IT security in self-driving cars. The joint project goes by the name Security For Connected, Autonomous Cars (SecForCARs) and has funding of €7.2 million from the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research. Infineon is leading the project.

Vehicles already offer diverse communication interfaces and more and more automated functions, such as distance and lane-keeping assist systems. At the same...

Im Focus: Molecular switch will facilitate the development of pioneering electro-optical devices

A research team led by physicists at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) has developed molecular nanoswitches that can be toggled between two structurally different states using an applied voltage. They can serve as the basis for a pioneering class of devices that could replace silicon-based components with organic molecules.

The development of new electronic technologies drives the incessant reduction of functional component sizes. In the context of an international collaborative...

Im Focus: LZH showcases laser material processing of tomorrow at the LASYS 2018

At the LASYS 2018, from June 5th to 7th, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) will be showcasing processes for the laser material processing of tomorrow in hall 4 at stand 4E75. With blown bomb shells the LZH will present first results of a research project on civil security.

At this year's LASYS, the LZH will exhibit light-based processes such as cutting, welding, ablation and structuring as well as additive manufacturing for...

Im Focus: Self-illuminating pixels for a new display generation

There are videos on the internet that can make one marvel at technology. For example, a smartphone is casually bent around the arm or a thin-film display is rolled in all directions and with almost every diameter. From the user's point of view, this looks fantastic. From a professional point of view, however, the question arises: Is that already possible?

At Display Week 2018, scientists from the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Polymer Research IAP will be demonstrating today’s technological possibilities and...
