10 years EuroITV – anniversary conference for interactive television

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: Climate study finds evidence of global shift in the 1980s

Planet Earth experienced a global climate shift in the late 1980s on an unprecedented scale, fuelled by anthropogenic warming and a volcanic eruption, according to new research published this week.

Scientists say that a major step change, or ‘regime shift’, in the Earth’s biophysical systems, from the upper atmosphere to the depths of the ocean and from...

The Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems ISE has installed 70 photovoltaic modules on the outer façade of one of its lab buildings. The modules were...

Im Focus: Lactate for Brain Energy

Nerve cells cover their high energy demand with glucose and lactate. Scientists of the University of Zurich now provide new support for this. They show for the first time in the intact mouse brain evidence for an exchange of lactate between different brain cells. With this study they were able to confirm a 20-year old hypothesis.

In comparison to other organs, the human brain has the highest energy requirements. The supply of energy for nerve cells and the particular role of lactic acid...

Im Focus: Laser process simulation available as app for first time

In laser material processing, the simulation of processes has made great strides over the past few years. Today, the software can predict relatively well what will happen on the workpiece. Unfortunately, it is also highly complex and requires a lot of computing time. Thanks to clever simplification, experts from Fraunhofer ILT are now able to offer the first-ever simulation software that calculates processes in real time and also runs on tablet computers and smartphones. The fast software enables users to do without expensive experiments and to find optimum process parameters even more effectively.

Before now, the reliable simulation of laser processes was a job for experts. Armed with sophisticated software packages and after many hours on computer...
