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: Can we see monkeys from space? Emerging technologies to map biodiversity

An international team of scientists has proposed a new multi-disciplinary approach in which an array of new technologies will allow us to map biodiversity and the risks that wildlife is facing at the scale of whole landscapes. The findings are published in Nature Ecology and Evolution. This international research is led by the Kunming Institute of Zoology from China, University of East Anglia, University of Leicester and the Leibniz Institute for Zoo and Wildlife Research.

Using a combination of satellite and ground data, the team proposes that it is now possible to map biodiversity with an accuracy that has not been previously...

Im Focus: Climate satellite: Tracking methane with robust laser technology

Heatwaves in the Arctic, longer periods of vegetation in Europe, severe floods in West Africa – starting in 2021, scientists want to explore the emissions of the greenhouse gas methane with the German-French satellite MERLIN. This is made possible by a new robust laser system of the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT in Aachen, which achieves unprecedented measurement accuracy.

Methane is primarily the result of the decomposition of organic matter. The gas has a 25 times greater warming potential than carbon dioxide, but is not as...

Im Focus: How protons move through a fuel cell

Hydrogen is regarded as the energy source of the future: It is produced with solar power and can be used to generate heat and electricity in fuel cells. Empa researchers have now succeeded in decoding the movement of hydrogen ions in crystals – a key step towards more efficient energy conversion in the hydrogen industry of tomorrow.

As charge carriers, electrons and ions play the leading role in electrochemical energy storage devices and converters such as batteries and fuel cells. Proton...

Im Focus: A unique data centre for cosmological simulations

Scientists from the Excellence Cluster Universe at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität Munich have establised "Cosmowebportal", a unique data centre for cosmological simulations located at the Leibniz Supercomputing Centre (LRZ) of the Bavarian Academy of Sciences. The complete results of a series of large hydrodynamical cosmological simulations are available, with data volumes typically exceeding several hundred terabytes. Scientists worldwide can interactively explore these complex simulations via a web interface and directly access the results.

With current telescopes, scientists can observe our Universe’s galaxies and galaxy clusters and their distribution along an invisible cosmic web. From the...
