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: Nanoparticles help with malaria diagnosis – new rapid test in development

The WHO reports an estimated 429,000 malaria deaths each year. The disease mostly affects tropical and subtropical regions and in particular the African continent. The Fraunhofer Institute for Silicate Research ISC teamed up with the Fraunhofer Institute for Molecular Biology and Applied Ecology IME and the Institute of Tropical Medicine at the University of Tübingen for a new test method to detect malaria parasites in blood. The idea of the research project “NanoFRET” is to develop a highly sensitive and reliable rapid diagnostic test so that patient treatment can begin as early as possible.

Malaria is caused by parasites transmitted by mosquito bite. The most dangerous form of malaria is malaria tropica. Left untreated, it is fatal in most cases....

Im Focus: A “cosmic snake” reveals the structure of remote galaxies

The formation of stars in distant galaxies is still largely unexplored. For the first time, astron-omers at the University of Geneva have now been able to closely observe a star system six billion light-years away. In doing so, they are confirming earlier simulations made by the University of Zurich. One special effect is made possible by the multiple reflections of images that run through the cosmos like a snake.

Today, astronomers have a pretty accurate idea of how stars were formed in the recent cosmic past. But do these laws also apply to older galaxies? For around a...

Im Focus: Visual intelligence is not the same as IQ

Just because someone is smart and well-motivated doesn't mean he or she can learn the visual skills needed to excel at tasks like matching fingerprints, interpreting medical X-rays, keeping track of aircraft on radar displays or forensic face matching.

That is the implication of a new study which shows for the first time that there is a broad range of differences in people's visual ability and that these...

Im Focus: Novel Nano-CT device creates high-resolution 3D-X-rays of tiny velvet worm legs

Computer Tomography (CT) is a standard procedure in hospitals, but so far, the technology has not been suitable for imaging extremely small objects. In PNAS, a team from the Technical University of Munich (TUM) describes a Nano-CT device that creates three-dimensional x-ray images at resolutions up to 100 nanometers. The first test application: Together with colleagues from the University of Kassel and Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht the researchers analyzed the locomotory system of a velvet worm.

During a CT analysis, the object under investigation is x-rayed and a detector measures the respective amount of radiation absorbed from various angles....

Im Focus: Researchers Develop Data Bus for Quantum Computer

The quantum world is fragile; error correction codes are needed to protect the information stored in a quantum object from the deteriorating effects of noise. Quantum physicists in Innsbruck have developed a protocol to pass quantum information between differently encoded building blocks of a future quantum computer, such as processors and memories. Scientists may use this protocol in the future to build a data bus for quantum computers. The researchers have published their work in the journal Nature Communications.

Future quantum computers will be able to solve problems where conventional computers fail today. We are still far away from any large-scale implementation,...
