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: 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...
