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: Making lightweight construction suitable for series production

More and more automobile companies are focusing on body parts made of carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP). However, manufacturing and repair costs must be further reduced in order to make CFRP more economical in use. Together with the Volkswagen AG and five other partners in the project HolQueSt 3D, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) has developed laser processes for the automatic trimming, drilling and repair of three-dimensional components.

Automated manufacturing processes are the basis for ultimately establishing the series production of CFRP components. In the project HolQueSt 3D, the LZH has...

Im Focus: Wonder material? Novel nanotube structure strengthens thin films for flexible electronics

Reflecting the structure of composites found in nature and the ancient world, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have synthesized thin carbon nanotube (CNT) textiles that exhibit both high electrical conductivity and a level of toughness that is about fifty times higher than copper films, currently used in electronics.

"The structural robustness of thin metal films has significant importance for the reliable operation of smart skin and flexible electronics including...

Im Focus: Deep inside Galaxy M87

The nearby, giant radio galaxy M87 hosts a supermassive black hole (BH) and is well-known for its bright jet dominating the spectrum over ten orders of magnitude in frequency. Due to its proximity, jet prominence, and the large black hole mass, M87 is the best laboratory for investigating the formation, acceleration, and collimation of relativistic jets. A research team led by Silke Britzen from the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy in Bonn, Germany, has found strong indication for turbulent processes connecting the accretion disk and the jet of that galaxy providing insights into the longstanding problem of the origin of astrophysical jets.

Supermassive black holes form some of the most enigmatic phenomena in astrophysics. Their enormous energy output is supposed to be generated by the...

Im Focus: A Quantum Low Pass for Photons

Physicists in Garching observe novel quantum effect that limits the number of emitted photons.

The probability to find a certain number of photons inside a laser pulse usually corresponds to a classical distribution of independent events, the so-called...

Im Focus: Microprocessors based on a layer of just three atoms

Microprocessors based on atomically thin materials hold the promise of the evolution of traditional processors as well as new applications in the field of flexible electronics. Now, a TU Wien research team led by Thomas Müller has made a breakthrough in this field as part of an ongoing research project.

Two-dimensional materials, or 2D materials for short, are extremely versatile, although – or often more precisely because – they are made up of just one or a...
