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.

Strong light-matter coupling in these semiconducting tubes may hold the key to electrically pumped lasers
Light-matter quasi-particles can be generated electrically in semiconducting carbon nanotubes. Material scientists and physicists from Heidelberg University...
Fraunhofer IPA has developed a proximity sensor made from silicone and carbon nanotubes (CNT) which detects objects and determines their position. The materials and printing process used mean that the sensor is extremely flexible, economical and can be used for large surfaces. Industry and research partners can use and further develop this innovation straight away.
At first glance, the proximity sensor appears to be nothing special: a thin, elastic layer of silicone onto which black square surfaces are printed, but these...
3-D shape acquisition using water displacement as the shape sensor for the reconstruction of complex objects
A global team of computer scientists and engineers have developed an innovative technique that more completely reconstructs challenging 3D objects. An ancient...
Physicists have developed a new technique that uses electrical voltages to control the electron spin on a chip. The newly-developed method provides protection from spin decay, meaning that the contained information can be maintained and transmitted over comparatively large distances, as has been demonstrated by a team from the University of Basel’s Department of Physics and the Swiss Nanoscience Institute. The results have been published in Physical Review X.
For several years, researchers have been trying to use the spin of an electron to store and transmit information. The spin of each electron is always coupled...
What is the mass of a proton? Scientists from Germany and Japan successfully did an important step towards the most exact knowledge of this fundamental constant. By means of precision measurements on a single proton, they could improve the precision by a factor of three and also correct the existing value.
To determine the mass of a single proton still more accurate – a group of physicists led by Klaus Blaum and Sven Sturm of the Max Planck Institute for Nuclear...
