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: Interfacial Superconductivity: Magnetic and superconducting order revealed simultaneously

Researchers from the University of Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Aarhus in Denmark, have synthesized a new superconducting material by growing a few layers of an antiferromagnetic transition-metal chalcogenide on a bismuth-based topological insulator, both being non-superconducting materials.

While superconductivity and magnetism are generally believed to be mutually exclusive, surprisingly, in this new material, superconducting correlations...

Im Focus: Designing Architecture with Solar Building Envelopes

Among the general public, solar thermal energy is currently associated with dark blue, rectangular collectors on building roofs. Technologies are needed for aesthetically high quality architecture which offer the architect more room for manoeuvre when it comes to low- and plus-energy buildings. With the “ArKol” project, researchers at Fraunhofer ISE together with partners are currently developing two façade collectors for solar thermal energy generation, which permit a high degree of design flexibility: a strip collector for opaque façade sections and a solar thermal blind for transparent sections. The current state of the two developments will be presented at the BAU 2017 trade fair.

As part of the “ArKol – development of architecturally highly integrated façade collectors with heat pipes” project, Fraunhofer ISE together with its partners...
