1st International THESEUS Symposium

07.05.2009
From 29-30 June 2009 the German Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology will host the 1st International THESEUS Symposium for its flagshipprogram "THESEUS".

The International THESEUS Symposium aims at establishing collaborations and cross-fertilizations between projects on the Internet of the Future.

A number of countries have set up research programs and projects with different intentions based on different visions of what the Internet of the Future could and should be: Some of the research activities focus on the development of technologies and new standards. Others are more concerned with applications and future use of the Internet, or they look at its commercial exploitation. While some programs and projects seem to be complementary in what they do, others seem to overlap.

THESEUS is one of these projects conducted as a joint research project that involves major industries and academic institutions. The European Community funds quite a number of projects and programs with the aim to foster the transnational collaboration on the development of the Internet of the Future. Major initiatives have also been set up in Japan, Australia and on the American continent. We would like to share our vision of the Future Internet as an "Internet of Services" with these initiatives and would like to exchange information about these visions, approaches and technologies for a mutual benefit. The THESEUS Symposium will hopefully also be the take-off point for an International Cooperation Action that will be supported financially later on.

The program falls into two parts:

- In an Executive Session during the first day the program will focus on strategies for developing future technologies and applications for the Internet.

- In a Technology Session during the second day the program will focus on technology hot spots in the development of the Internet of the Future.

The program is meant to create a balance between views in different parts of the world as well as between research and industrial developments, and it will show how different governmental authorities take part in these developments with their funding strategies.

Im Focus: A Challenging European Research Project to Develop New Tiny Microscopes

The Institute of Semiconductor Technology and the Institute of Physical and Theoretical Chemistry, both members of the Laboratory for Emerging Nanometrology (LENA), at Technische Universität Braunschweig are partners in a new European research project entitled ChipScope, which aims to develop a completely new and extremely small optical microscope capable of observing the interior of living cells in real time. A consortium of 7 partners from 5 countries will tackle this issue with very ambitious objectives during a four-year research program.

To demonstrate the usefulness of this new scientific tool, at the end of the project the developed chip-sized microscope will be used to observe in real-time...

Im Focus: Giant Magnetic Fields in the Universe

Astronomers from Bonn and Tautenburg in Thuringia (Germany) used the 100-m radio telescope at Effelsberg to observe several galaxy clusters. At the edges of these large accumulations of dark matter, stellar systems (galaxies), hot gas, and charged particles, they found magnetic fields that are exceptionally ordered over distances of many million light years. This makes them the most extended magnetic fields in the universe known so far.

The results will be published on March 22 in the journal „Astronomy & Astrophysics“.

Galaxy clusters are the largest gravitationally bound structures in the universe. With a typical extent of about 10 million light years, i.e. 100 times the...

Im Focus: Tracing down linear ubiquitination

Researchers at the Goethe University Frankfurt, together with partners from the University of Tübingen in Germany and Queen Mary University as well as Francis Crick Institute from London (UK) have developed a novel technology to decipher the secret ubiquitin code.

Ubiquitin is a small protein that can be linked to other cellular proteins, thereby controlling and modulating their functions. The attachment occurs in many...

Im Focus: Polymer-coated silicon nanosheets as alternative to graphene: A perfect team for nanoelectronics

Silicon nanosheets are thin, two-dimensional layers with exceptional optoelectronic properties very similar to those of graphene. Albeit, the nanosheets are less stable. Now researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have, for the first time ever, produced a composite material combining silicon nanosheets and a polymer that is both UV-resistant and easy to process. This brings the scientists a significant step closer to industrial applications like flexible displays and photosensors.
