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.Contact:

An international team of scientists has proposed a new multi-disciplinary approach in which an array of new technologies will allow us to map biodiversity and the risks that wildlife is facing at the scale of whole landscapes. The findings are published in Nature Ecology and Evolution. This international research is led by the Kunming Institute of Zoology from China, University of East Anglia, University of Leicester and the Leibniz Institute for Zoo and Wildlife Research.
Using a combination of satellite and ground data, the team proposes that it is now possible to map biodiversity with an accuracy that has not been previously...
Heatwaves in the Arctic, longer periods of vegetation in Europe, severe floods in West Africa – starting in 2021, scientists want to explore the emissions of the greenhouse gas methane with the German-French satellite MERLIN. This is made possible by a new robust laser system of the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT in Aachen, which achieves unprecedented measurement accuracy.
Methane is primarily the result of the decomposition of organic matter. The gas has a 25 times greater warming potential than carbon dioxide, but is not as...
Hydrogen is regarded as the energy source of the future: It is produced with solar power and can be used to generate heat and electricity in fuel cells. Empa researchers have now succeeded in decoding the movement of hydrogen ions in crystals – a key step towards more efficient energy conversion in the hydrogen industry of tomorrow.
As charge carriers, electrons and ions play the leading role in electrochemical energy storage devices and converters such as batteries and fuel cells. Proton...
Scientists from the Excellence Cluster Universe at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität Munich have establised "Cosmowebportal", a unique data centre for cosmological simulations located at the Leibniz Supercomputing Centre (LRZ) of the Bavarian Academy of Sciences. The complete results of a series of large hydrodynamical cosmological simulations are available, with data volumes typically exceeding several hundred terabytes. Scientists worldwide can interactively explore these complex simulations via a web interface and directly access the results.
With current telescopes, scientists can observe our Universe’s galaxies and galaxy clusters and their distribution along an invisible cosmic web. From the...
