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: Etching Microstructures with Lasers

Ultrafast lasers have introduced new possibilities in engraving ultrafine structures, and scientists are now also investigating how to use them to etch microstructures into thin glass. There are possible applications in analytics (lab on a chip) and especially in electronics and the consumer sector, where great interest has been shown.

This new method was born of a surprising phenomenon: irradiating glass in a particular way with an ultrafast laser has the effect of making the glass up to a...

Im Focus: Light-driven atomic rotations excite magnetic waves

Terahertz excitation of selected crystal vibrations leads to an effective magnetic field that drives coherent spin motion

Controlling functional properties by light is one of the grand goals in modern condensed matter physics and materials science. A new study now demonstrates how...

Im Focus: New 3-D wiring technique brings scalable quantum computers closer to reality

Researchers from the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) at the University of Waterloo led the development of a new extensible wiring technique capable of controlling superconducting quantum bits, representing a significant step towards to the realization of a scalable quantum computer.

"The quantum socket is a wiring method that uses three-dimensional wires based on spring-loaded pins to address individual qubits," said Jeremy Béjanin, a PhD...

Im Focus: Scientists develop a semiconductor nanocomposite material that moves in response to light

In a paper in Scientific Reports, a research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute describes a novel light-activated phenomenon that could become the basis for applications as diverse as microscopic robotic grippers and more efficient solar cells.

A research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) has developed a revolutionary, light-activated semiconductor nanocomposite material that can be used...

Im Focus: Diamonds aren't forever: Sandia, Harvard team create first quantum computer bridge

By forcefully embedding two silicon atoms in a diamond matrix, Sandia researchers have demonstrated for the first time on a single chip all the components needed to create a quantum bridge to link quantum computers together.

"People have already built small quantum computers," says Sandia researcher Ryan Camacho. "Maybe the first useful one won't be a single giant quantum computer...
