ForumOxford reaches 1000!

21.09.2006
ForumOxford, the University of Oxford’s Next Generation Mobile Applications Panel, has grown to a remarkably active discussion forum of 1000 members from 66 countries since its launch on 5 September 2005.

So what of discussions? There are a total of 457 topics. Over the last 4 months, which includes the quiet month of August, 171 new topics have been added, an average of 9.8 new topics every week.

The 393 British members now form 42% of the membership and 58% come from other countries; 22% from the rest of Europe, 17% from Asia, 13% from North America, 3% from Africa, 2% from Oceania and 1% from Latin America.

And what have been the hottest topics at ForumOxford over the past four months? The 12 most popular topics in order of increasing activity, listing also the person who started that thread and the number of comments:

Video to interactive TV (Peter Barnes) 14
Tracking WiFi Clouds (Tomi Ahonen) 15
Paypal Mobile (Mark Brill) 15
Micropayments using mobile (Tim Woolford) 15
IP Addressable SIMs (William Vine) 17
xhtml-mp vs a full mobile browers experience (Ajit Jaokar) 17
What is the advantage of DMB to content providers (Ajit Jaokar) 19
Killer App (Vladimir Dimitroff) 20
iPod Market share not 78%, 19% (Tomi Ahonen) 26
mobile web advertising: a contradiction in terms (Ajit Jaokar) 26
The Mobile Internet should be pronounced dead (Walter Adamson) 26
And the most popular topic during the past 4 months with 46 comments has been: Mobile Video DMB vs DVB-H, started by Ajit Jaokar.

For the one year anniversary and to recognise reaching the milestone of 1000 members, a new journal will be published which will comprise a number of the most interesting topics. In addition, the University of Oxford will look to the experience of ForumOxford members to maintain its reputation as one of Europe’s leading training providers.

ForumOxford is free to join to all those interested in the future of Mobile Applications – see http://www.conted.ox.ac.uk/cpd/electronics for details.

Im Focus: Neutron star merger directly observed for the first time

University of Maryland researchers contribute to historic detection of gravitational waves and light created by event

On August 17, 2017, at 12:41:04 UTC, scientists made the first direct observation of a merger between two neutron stars--the dense, collapsed cores that remain...

Im Focus: Breaking: the first light from two neutron stars merging

Seven new papers describe the first-ever detection of light from a gravitational wave source. The event, caused by two neutron stars colliding and merging together, was dubbed GW170817 because it sent ripples through space-time that reached Earth on 2017 August 17. Around the world, hundreds of excited astronomers mobilized quickly and were able to observe the event using numerous telescopes, providing a wealth of new data.

Previous detections of gravitational waves have all involved the merger of two black holes, a feat that won the 2017 Nobel Prize in Physics earlier this month....

Im Focus: Smart sensors for efficient processes

Material defects in end products can quickly result in failures in many areas of industry, and have a massive impact on the safe use of their products. This is why, in the field of quality assurance, intelligent, nondestructive sensor systems play a key role. They allow testing components and parts in a rapid and cost-efficient manner without destroying the actual product or changing its surface. Experts from the Fraunhofer IZFP in Saarbrücken will be presenting two exhibits at the Blechexpo in Stuttgart from 7–10 November 2017 that allow fast, reliable, and automated characterization of materials and detection of defects (Hall 5, Booth 5306).

When quality testing uses time-consuming destructive test methods, it can result in enormous costs due to damaging or destroying the products. And given that...

Im Focus: Cold molecules on collision course

Using a new cooling technique MPQ scientists succeed at observing collisions in a dense beam of cold and slow dipolar molecules.

How do chemical reactions proceed at extremely low temperatures? The answer requires the investigation of molecular samples that are cold, dense, and slow at...

Im Focus: Shrinking the proton again!

Scientists from the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics, using high precision laser spectroscopy of atomic hydrogen, confirm the surprisingly small value of the proton radius determined from muonic hydrogen.

It was one of the breakthroughs of the year 2010: Laser spectroscopy of muonic hydrogen resulted in a value for the proton charge radius that was significantly...
