Join the first “Internet of Things - week” in Barcelona from June 6 to June 9, 2011
“Internet of Things – Architecture” (IoT-A), is ramping up the first IoT week 2011 in Barcelona from June 6 to June 9, 2011.
The event is organised by VDI/VDE Innovation + Technik GmbH, as IoT-A project coordinator and shared by four European projects and the European Research Cluster on Internet of Things (IERC).
Participants of the IoT week 2011 will have the possibility to discover some of the EU’s most advanced research projects and initiatives in the area of IoT and to engage with the global IoT research community.
At the IoT week IoT-A will showcase the results of the first Reference Model of an IoT architecture. IoT-i will inform on the current state of discussion on establishing an IoT Forum and how to participate in it. Smart Santander, an advanced smart cities project, will also share its experience.
In addition CASAGRAS2 will provide background information on how international cooperation contributes to the goal of creating a unified view on the Internet of Things. Furthermore, IoT experts from the European Commission will share their views and expectations.
The combination of the conference, chaired sessions, workshops and meetings of different projects during the week contribute to bringing the scientific and industrial community together in one location. The IoT week offers an excellent arena for science and business to meet and discuss the future challenges of the Internet of Things.

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.
A warming planet
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...
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...
Using ultrafast flashes of laser and x-ray radiation, scientists at the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics (Garching, Germany) took snapshots of the briefest electron motion inside a solid material to date. The electron motion lasted only 750 billionths of the billionth of a second before it fainted, setting a new record of human capability to capture ultrafast processes inside solids!
When x-rays shine onto solid materials or large molecules, an electron is pushed away from its original place near the nucleus of the atom, leaving a hole...
For the first time, physicists have successfully imaged spiral magnetic ordering in a multiferroic material. These materials are considered highly promising candidates for future data storage media. The researchers were able to prove their findings using unique quantum sensors that were developed at Basel University and that can analyze electromagnetic fields on the nanometer scale. The results – obtained by scientists from the University of Basel’s Department of Physics, the Swiss Nanoscience Institute, the University of Montpellier and several laboratories from University Paris-Saclay – were recently published in the journal Nature.
Multiferroics are materials that simultaneously react to electric and magnetic fields. These two properties are rarely found together, and their combined...
