10 years EuroITV – anniversary conference for interactive television

02.07.2012
For the tenth time, the top international event for interactive television, EuroITV, will take place. Fraunhofer FOKUS will be hosting the conference from July 4 to 6, 2012 in Berlin under the motto "Bridging People, Places and Platforms". The organizers are expecting about 180 trade visitors from all over the world at this jubilee event.
For the last ten years, the English-speaking EuroITV has been gathering international experts in the area interactive media. This coming Wednesday, the tenth EuroITV will begin with topics like mobile television, interactive media, user-friendliness as well as new marketing and financing models for the TV and media sector.

In three topic tracks, "Human-Computer Interaction", "Media, Social and Economic Studies" and "Systems and Enabling Technologies", the approximately 180 participants will exchange information under the professional coordination of an experienced program committee. Therefore, the event will not only encourage up-to-date discussions but also will offer the opportunity to network in the smart media scene. The keynote speakers at the conference will be media designer and professor at the Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech) Janet Murray, as well as Olga Khroustaleva and Tom Broxton, responsible for user experience at the Internet Company YouTube.

"Few other technical topics are subject to such a large, dynamic and such a fast pace of innovation as the area of interaction, media and TV", says Dr. Stefan Arbanowski, department head at Fraunhofer FOKUS and one of the main coordinators of the EuroITV. "With the EuroITV, we are bringing leading experts together to combine new ideas and technical possibilities together and to translate them into reality.”

EuroITV 2012
Date: July 4 - 6, 2012, from 9:00 am – 6:00 pm
Venue: Seminaris Campus-Hotel Berlin, Takustraße 39, 14195 Berlin
This event will be held in English!

Fraunhofer FOKUS
Fraunhofer FOKUS, based in Berlin, Germany, explores how communication networks can contribute to more convenient and more secure living. Thus, the institute addresses important challenges in society, including access to information, smart mobility and modern governmental administration that is efficient as well as accessible from everywhere.

Besides technical infrastructures, Fraunhofer FOKUS develops manifold practical solutions as well. As an independent research institute, Fraunhofer FOKUS is an important link between industry, governmental administration and the people. The institute is developing the communication architecture of tomorrow both on its own and together with strong partners.

Im Focus: Interfacial Superconductivity: Magnetic and superconducting order revealed simultaneously

Researchers from the University of Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Aarhus in Denmark, have synthesized a new superconducting material by growing a few layers of an antiferromagnetic transition-metal chalcogenide on a bismuth-based topological insulator, both being non-superconducting materials.

While superconductivity and magnetism are generally believed to be mutually exclusive, surprisingly, in this new material, superconducting correlations...

Im Focus: Designing Architecture with Solar Building Envelopes

Among the general public, solar thermal energy is currently associated with dark blue, rectangular collectors on building roofs. Technologies are needed for aesthetically high quality architecture which offer the architect more room for manoeuvre when it comes to low- and plus-energy buildings. With the “ArKol” project, researchers at Fraunhofer ISE together with partners are currently developing two façade collectors for solar thermal energy generation, which permit a high degree of design flexibility: a strip collector for opaque façade sections and a solar thermal blind for transparent sections. The current state of the two developments will be presented at the BAU 2017 trade fair.

As part of the “ArKol – development of architecturally highly integrated façade collectors with heat pipes” project, Fraunhofer ISE together with its partners...

At TU Wien, an alternative for resource intensive formwork for the construction of concrete domes was developed. It is now used in a test dome for the Austrian Federal Railways Infrastructure (ÖBB Infrastruktur).

Concrete shells are efficient structures, but not very resource efficient. The formwork for the construction of concrete domes alone requires a high amount of...
