The workshop was chaired by Bartolomeo Sapio (chair of COST 298) and took place on July 20, 2008, involving both experienced European researchers in the field and 15 young researchers from 10 European countries.
The introduction of digital television is an important development of the last decade in the European countries. It has several market and business aspects, and some regulatory/policy questions also arose. By 2015, all European countries will have to switch off their analogue terrestrial TV-signal. This will have considerable implications for viewers, TV markets and policy.
The main goal of the workshop was to analyse in-depth the implications of (interactive) digital television for users, markets and policy. The output will serve as concrete guidance for public policy and technological development strategies. Main topics of the workshop included the changing viewing practices, business models in a changing business environment and challenges for policy making.
The workshop contributed to scientific communication within COST 298 and the network that we activated with contiguous Actions. It also fostered communication between Early Stage Researchers and experienced researchers with its interactive format.

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...
