Editors and Authors of “The Digital Review of Asia Pacific 2009-2010” will meet in Singapore, 2-4 March, 2008

26.02.2008
The Editorial Board and Authors of “The Digital Review of Asia Pacific ”, comprising some 50 experts from government, academe, industry and civil society, will be meeting in Singapore from March 2-4th at Sentosa’s Silosa Beach Hotel, to start planning for the 2009-2010 version of the Digital Review of Asia Pacific.

The biennial Digital Review of Asia Pacific is a comprehensive guide to the state-of-practice and trends in information and communication technologies for development (ICT4D) in Asia Pacific.

The third edition (2007–2008), which was launched in December 2007 at the Global Knowledge Conference in Kuala Lumpur, covers 31 countries and economies, including North Korea for the first time. Each country chapter presents key ICT policies, applications, and initiatives for national development. In addition, five thematic chapters provide a synthesis of some of the key issues in ICT4D in the region, including mobile and wireless technologies, risk communication, intellectual property regimes, and localization.

The publication’s Editorial Board and Authors, comprising some 50 experts from government, academe, industry and civil society, (see attached list), will be meeting in Singapore from March 2-4th at Sentosa’s Silosa Beach Hotel, to start planning for the 2009-2010 version of the Digital Review of Asia Pacific. The next version is expected to cover themes such as ICTs, Education and the Millennium Development Goals, Distance Education, ICTs and Nonformal Education, Private Public Partnership in ICTs for Education, and Knowledge and Innovation.

The Editorial Board is chaired by Dr Shahid Akhtar who was formerly the head of UNDP’s Asia Pacific Development Information Programme. The Digital Review project is coordinated by Dr Claude-Yves Charron, who is Secretary General of ORBICOM (the Network of UNESCO Chairs in Communications), and also Vice-Rector of the University of Quebec in Montreal, Canada.

The Digital Review of Asia Pacific project is supported by the International Development Research Centre of Canada.

Im Focus: Dresdner scientists print tomorrow’s world

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.

The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...

Im Focus: Three Magnetic States for Each Hole

Nanometer-scale magnetic perforated grids could create new possibilities for computing. Together with international colleagues, scientists from the Helmholtz Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) have shown how a cobalt grid can be reliably programmed at room temperature. In addition they discovered that for every hole ("antidot") three magnetic states can be configured. The results have been published in the journal "Scientific Reports".

Physicist Dr. Rantej Bali from the HZDR, together with scientists from Singapore and Australia, designed a special grid structure in a thin layer of cobalt in...
