The Webdesign International Festival 2006, held in Limoges, in central France, will host three days of international competitions, lectures, debates, demonstrations, exhibitions and meetings focusing on interactive, web-based design from 2 to 4 February 2006. The University of Limoges is also setting up a training course in web-design skills. The first 20 candidates for the diploma in ’Sensorial web design and online creation strategies’ will begin their studies this October.
During the 2006 Webdesign International Festival (WIF) there will be 24 hours of non-stop competition between dozens of web-design teams from all over the world. Simultaneous pre-selections will take place in more than ten countries across three continents on 18 and 19 November 2005. The final will be held in Limoges from 2 to 4 February 2006. There will also be lectures and business meetings for professionals, exhibitions, and evening events for web-design enthusiasts.
The second WIF is focused on new technologies and is held in Limoges in the heart of the Limousin region. "The Webdesign International Festival is a federating event central to a regional strategy aimed at ICT. The Festival, an occasion for discovering talent, launched the creation of an international network of web-design skills and a centre of competence in the region," says Benoît Duverneuil, project manager with the Limousin Regional Development Agency (ARD).

Tiny pores at a cell's entryway act as miniature bouncers, letting in some electrically charged atoms--ions--but blocking others. Operating as exquisitely sensitive filters, these "ion channels" play a critical role in biological functions such as muscle contraction and the firing of brain cells.
To rapidly transport the right ions through the cell membrane, the tiny channels rely on a complex interplay between the ions and surrounding molecules,...
The miniaturization of the current technology of storage media is hindered by fundamental limits of quantum mechanics. A new approach consists in using so-called spin-crossover molecules as the smallest possible storage unit. Similar to normal hard drives, these special molecules can save information via their magnetic state. A research team from Kiel University has now managed to successfully place a new class of spin-crossover molecules onto a surface and to improve the molecule’s storage capacity. The storage density of conventional hard drives could therefore theoretically be increased by more than one hundred fold. The study has been published in the scientific journal Nano Letters.
Over the past few years, the building blocks of storage media have gotten ever smaller. But further miniaturization of the current technology is hindered by...
