World Wide Web Consortium to Host Booth at 3GSM 2005

09.02.2005


W3C Technologies Critical to Mobile Web Success



The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) is staffing a booth at the 3GSM Congress from 14 to 17 February 2005, at the Palais des Festivals et des Congres in Cannes, France. All attendees now have the opportunity to learn about W3C’s mobile Web efforts in Hall 1, stand A24.

"W3C’s Recommendations have provided the Web with standard technologies that better serve the full range of Web citizens," explained Tim Berners-Lee, W3C Director. "Our goal is to make Web access from a mobile device as simple, easy and convenient as it is from a desktop device."


W3C Develops Interoperability Standards for the Mobile Web

Exploring the Web from a mobile device today has yet to fulfill its promise, due to obstacles in interoperability and usability. People often find that their favorite Web sites are difficult to access with a mobile device, if available at all. W3C is currently addressing many challenges of the mobile Web:

- Lower-cost content for mobile devices
- Convenient Web browsing from mobile devices
- Multimodal interaction for mobile Web
- Multimedia and graphics for Multimedia Messaging (MMS)

W3C has groups working on device independence, multimodal Web access and content types for multimedia messaging. Already, mobile-specific standards organizations have adopted numerous W3C Recommendations such as XHTML Basic, SMIL Mobile, Mobile SVG, InkML, CC/PP and VoiceXML 2.0. All of these specifications allow for rich content experiences, and leverage the power and extensibility of the XML standard.

W3C Addresses Mobile Industry Concerns

Supporters of the mobile Web recognize the tremendous business opportunity created by combining mobile and Web technologies. Key mobile services players such as authoring tool vendors, content providers, handset manufacturers, browser vendors and mobile phone operators share the same goal: accessing the Web from a mobile device should be as convenient as from a desktop. Following the tremendous success of the Mobile Web Initiative workshop held two months ago, W3C expects to launch a Mobile Web Initiative in 2005 to focus on increasing the adoption of standardized technologies and identifying best practices for industry.

W3C’s Booth Located in Hall 1 - A24

W3C’s stand will be located in the main hall of the Palais des Festivals: Hall 1 - A24. For more information, please contact Marie-Claire Forgue, or visit the W3C@3GSM05 page.

Im Focus: Giant Magnetic Fields in the Universe

Astronomers from Bonn and Tautenburg in Thuringia (Germany) used the 100-m radio telescope at Effelsberg to observe several galaxy clusters. At the edges of these large accumulations of dark matter, stellar systems (galaxies), hot gas, and charged particles, they found magnetic fields that are exceptionally ordered over distances of many million light years. This makes them the most extended magnetic fields in the universe known so far.

The results will be published on March 22 in the journal „Astronomy & Astrophysics“.

Galaxy clusters are the largest gravitationally bound structures in the universe. With a typical extent of about 10 million light years, i.e. 100 times the...

Im Focus: Tracing down linear ubiquitination

Researchers at the Goethe University Frankfurt, together with partners from the University of Tübingen in Germany and Queen Mary University as well as Francis Crick Institute from London (UK) have developed a novel technology to decipher the secret ubiquitin code.

Ubiquitin is a small protein that can be linked to other cellular proteins, thereby controlling and modulating their functions. The attachment occurs in many...

Im Focus: Polymer-coated silicon nanosheets as alternative to graphene: A perfect team for nanoelectronics

Silicon nanosheets are thin, two-dimensional layers with exceptional optoelectronic properties very similar to those of graphene. Albeit, the nanosheets are less stable. Now researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have, for the first time ever, produced a composite material combining silicon nanosheets and a polymer that is both UV-resistant and easy to process. This brings the scientists a significant step closer to industrial applications like flexible displays and photosensors.

Im Focus: Researchers Imitate Molecular Crowding in Cells

Enzymes behave differently in a test tube compared with the molecular scrum of a living cell. Chemists from the University of Basel have now been able to simulate these confined natural conditions in artificial vesicles for the first time. As reported in the academic journal Small, the results are offering better insight into the development of nanoreactors and artificial organelles.
