IPv6 Contest: Looking for Fresh Ideas for the New Internet

26.01.2009
The German IPv6 Council today initiated a contest for ideas pertaining to the next generation of the Internet. The council invites submissions of applications that are based on the new Internet standard of IPv6.

This way the transition to the new rules of data traffic on the Internet will take place in an efficient manner and on a large scale. The German IPv6 Council, founded in late 2007 in Potsdam, will award prizes of up to 10.000 Euros to the best developers' ideas for concepts, applications, and implementations. The submission deadline is April 10, 2009. The winners will be announced and receive their awards at the 2nd German IPv6 Summit on May 14, 2009 in Potsdam.

"The contest will provide an opportunity for software and application developers and interested parties in general to gain further experience in dealing with the new Internet protocol," said Professor Christoph Meinel, director of the Hasso-Plattner-Institute (HPI), chair for Internet Technologies and Systems at HPI and chairman of the German IPv6 Council. "The main evaluation criteria will be how strongly the proposals promote the continuous propagation of IPv6 and how strongly they contribute to the transmission of a new Internet experience," Meinel said.

Following the 3rd National IT Summit in late November 2008, the German IPv6 Council announced the development of a detailed roadmap for implementation of the new mega-net, an endeavor it pursues in cooperation with the federal government, industry associations, scientists and other actors from academia, and Internet users. With its final declaration, the "Darmstädter Erklärung", the IT Summit provided renewed resolve for the introduction of the new IPv6 Internet in Germany.

The German IPv6 Council is the German national branch of the international IPv6 Forum, an umbrella organization of more than 50 national bodies. The mission of the German IPv6 Council is to unite all national industrial, academic, political, and administrative actors who are concerned with the improved technical standards for data transmission on the new Internet and to advocate for the implementation of the new Internet protocol. This objective will be achieved through increased awareness among end users and industry about a more refined and secure Internet, as well as improvements in technology and marketing. Currently about a dozen representatives from politics, industry, and academia work together in the German IPv6 Council.

Im Focus: Nanoparticles help with malaria diagnosis – new rapid test in development

The WHO reports an estimated 429,000 malaria deaths each year. The disease mostly affects tropical and subtropical regions and in particular the African continent. The Fraunhofer Institute for Silicate Research ISC teamed up with the Fraunhofer Institute for Molecular Biology and Applied Ecology IME and the Institute of Tropical Medicine at the University of Tübingen for a new test method to detect malaria parasites in blood. The idea of the research project “NanoFRET” is to develop a highly sensitive and reliable rapid diagnostic test so that patient treatment can begin as early as possible.

Malaria is caused by parasites transmitted by mosquito bite. The most dangerous form of malaria is malaria tropica. Left untreated, it is fatal in most cases....

Im Focus: A “cosmic snake” reveals the structure of remote galaxies

The formation of stars in distant galaxies is still largely unexplored. For the first time, astron-omers at the University of Geneva have now been able to closely observe a star system six billion light-years away. In doing so, they are confirming earlier simulations made by the University of Zurich. One special effect is made possible by the multiple reflections of images that run through the cosmos like a snake.

Today, astronomers have a pretty accurate idea of how stars were formed in the recent cosmic past. But do these laws also apply to older galaxies? For around a...

Im Focus: Visual intelligence is not the same as IQ

Just because someone is smart and well-motivated doesn't mean he or she can learn the visual skills needed to excel at tasks like matching fingerprints, interpreting medical X-rays, keeping track of aircraft on radar displays or forensic face matching.

That is the implication of a new study which shows for the first time that there is a broad range of differences in people's visual ability and that these...
