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: Novel silicon etching technique crafts 3-D gradient refractive index micro-optics

A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.

Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...

Im Focus: Quantum Particles Form Droplets

In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.

“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...

Im Focus: MADMAX: Max Planck Institute for Physics takes up axion research

The Max Planck Institute for Physics (MPP) is opening up a new research field. A workshop from November 21 - 22, 2016 will mark the start of activities for an innovative axion experiment. Axions are still only purely hypothetical particles. Their detection could solve two fundamental problems in particle physics: What dark matter consists of and why it has not yet been possible to directly observe a CP violation for the strong interaction.

The “MADMAX” project is the MPP’s commitment to axion research. Axions are so far only a theoretical prediction and are difficult to detect: on the one hand,...

Im Focus: Fraunhofer ISE Develops Highly Compact, High Frequency DC/DC Converter for Aviation

The efficiency of power electronic systems is not solely dependent on electrical efficiency but also on weight, for example, in mobile systems. When the weight of relevant components and devices in airplanes, for instance, is reduced, fuel savings can be achieved and correspondingly greenhouse gas emissions decreased. New materials and components based on gallium nitride (GaN) can help to reduce weight and increase the efficiency. With these new materials, power electronic switches can be operated at higher switching frequency, resulting in higher power density and lower material costs.

Researchers at the Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems ISE together with partners have investigated how these materials can be used to make power...
