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: The fastest light-driven current source

Controlling electronic current is essential to modern electronics, as data and signals are transferred by streams of electrons which are controlled at high speed. Demands on transmission speeds are also increasing as technology develops. Scientists from the Chair of Laser Physics and the Chair of Applied Physics at Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU) have succeeded in switching on a current with a desired direction in graphene using a single laser pulse within a femtosecond ¬¬ – a femtosecond corresponds to the millionth part of a billionth of a second. This is more than a thousand times faster compared to the most efficient transistors today.

Graphene is up to the job

Im Focus: LaserTAB: More efficient and precise contacts thanks to human-robot collaboration

At the productronica trade fair in Munich this November, the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT will be presenting Laser-Based Tape-Automated Bonding, LaserTAB for short. The experts from Aachen will be demonstrating how new battery cells and power electronics can be micro-welded more efficiently and precisely than ever before thanks to new optics and robot support.

Fraunhofer ILT from Aachen relies on a clever combination of robotics and a laser scanner with new optics as well as process monitoring, which it has developed...

Im Focus: The pyrenoid is a carbon-fixing liquid droplet

Plants and algae use the enzyme Rubisco to fix carbon dioxide, removing it from the atmosphere and converting it into biomass. Algae have figured out a way to increase the efficiency of carbon fixation. They gather most of their Rubisco into a ball-shaped microcompartment called the pyrenoid, which they flood with a high local concentration of carbon dioxide. A team of scientists at Princeton University, the Carnegie Institution for Science, Stanford University and the Max Plank Institute of Biochemistry have unravelled the mysteries of how the pyrenoid is assembled. These insights can help to engineer crops that remove more carbon dioxide from the atmosphere while producing more food.

Im Focus: Highly precise wiring in the Cerebral Cortex

Our brains house extremely complex neuronal circuits, whose detailed structures are still largely unknown. This is especially true for the so-called cerebral cortex of mammals, where among other things vision, thoughts or spatial orientation are being computed. Here the rules by which nerve cells are connected to each other are only partly understood. A team of scientists around Moritz Helmstaedter at the Frankfiurt Max Planck Institute for Brain Research and Helene Schmidt (Humboldt University in Berlin) have now discovered a surprisingly precise nerve cell connectivity pattern in the part of the cerebral cortex that is responsible for orienting the individual animal or human in space.

The researchers report online in Nature (Schmidt et al., 2017. Axonal synapse sorting in medial entorhinal cortex, DOI: 10.1038/nature24005) that synapses in...

Im Focus: Tiny lasers from a gallery of whispers

New technique promises tunable laser devices

Whispering gallery mode (WGM) resonators are used to make tiny micro-lasers, sensors, switches, routers and other devices. These tiny structures rely on a...
