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: Fizzy soda water could be key to clean manufacture of flat wonder material: Graphene

Whether you call it effervescent, fizzy, or sparkling, carbonated water is making a comeback as a beverage. Aside from quenching thirst, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have discovered a new use for these "bubbly" concoctions that will have major impact on the manufacturer of the world's thinnest, flattest, and one most useful materials -- graphene.

As graphene's popularity grows as an advanced "wonder" material, the speed and quality at which it can be manufactured will be paramount. With that in mind,...

Im Focus: Exotic quantum states made from light: Physicists create optical “wells” for a super-photon

Physicists at the University of Bonn have managed to create optical hollows and more complex patterns into which the light of a Bose-Einstein condensate flows. The creation of such highly low-loss structures for light is a prerequisite for complex light circuits, such as for quantum information processing for a new generation of computers. The researchers are now presenting their results in the journal Nature Photonics.

Light particles (photons) occur as tiny, indivisible portions. Many thousands of these light portions can be merged to form a single super-photon if they are...

Im Focus: Circular RNA linked to brain function

For the first time, scientists have shown that circular RNA is linked to brain function. When a RNA molecule called Cdr1as was deleted from the genome of mice, the animals had problems filtering out unnecessary information – like patients suffering from neuropsychiatric disorders.

While hundreds of circular RNAs (circRNAs) are abundant in mammalian brains, one big question has remained unanswered: What are they actually good for? In the...

Im Focus: RAVAN CubeSat measures Earth's outgoing energy

An experimental small satellite has successfully collected and delivered data on a key measurement for predicting changes in Earth's climate.

The Radiometer Assessment using Vertically Aligned Nanotubes (RAVAN) CubeSat was launched into low-Earth orbit on Nov. 11, 2016, in order to test new...

Im Focus: Scientists shine new light on the “other high temperature superconductor”

A study led by scientists of the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) at the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science in Hamburg presents evidence of the coexistence of superconductivity and “charge-density-waves” in compounds of the poorly-studied family of bismuthates. This observation opens up new perspectives for a deeper understanding of the phenomenon of high-temperature superconductivity, a topic which is at the core of condensed matter research since more than 30 years. The paper by Nicoletti et al has been published in the PNAS.

Since the beginning of the 20th century, superconductivity had been observed in some metals at temperatures only a few degrees above the absolute zero (minus...
