French Pavilion at the heart of Internet World 2012

For the fourth consecutive year, the Trade Commission of the French Embassy in the UK will showcase innovative companies from the internet and digital-technology sectors on the French Pavilion at the Internet World trade show, to be held in London from 24 to 26 April 2012. Internet World is Europe's leading trade event in areas such as connectivity, hosting, e-commerce/m-commerce and social media.

The French Pavilion (Stand E1090, at Earl's Court 2, in Central London) will offer a unique environment in which company representatives can discover new products and find potential clients and business partners. For the fourth year in a row, the French Trade Commission in London organises the French national pavilion at the trade fair, between 24 and 26 April of this year.

The four exhibiting companies will showcase a range of innovative products from the internet and digital-technology sectors. These companies are aiming to reinforce their professional contacts and explore new business opportunities between France and the UK.

Internet World, now in its 20th year, is the trade show of reference in the UK (and across Europe) for online business, from digital and mobile marketing to connectivity and hosting, and from e-commerce and m-commerce to social media and content management.

Companies on the French stand are listed below; further information about the exhibitors is available on request.


Today, searching for documents, images, products and services on an internet or on an intranet platform relies on the use of words that are typed, as part of an online query, or as per a set of user-selected criteria. Atonis has developed EYES©, an Intelligent Visual Search Interface that constitutes a powerful, flexible alternative solution. EYES© is a software suite that is highly parametric and non-dedicated to a particular application or market segment.

The EYES© environment represents visual information and knowledge software that utilise various model representations involving mapping as well as dynamic and multi-criteria research tools. EYES© offers a creative and powerful alternative to 'classical' data mining: it constitutes, in the words of the company, an Intelligent Visual Mining tool.

Im Focus: New 3-D wiring technique brings scalable quantum computers closer to reality

Researchers from the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) at the University of Waterloo led the development of a new extensible wiring technique capable of controlling superconducting quantum bits, representing a significant step towards to the realization of a scalable quantum computer.

"The quantum socket is a wiring method that uses three-dimensional wires based on spring-loaded pins to address individual qubits," said Jeremy Béjanin, a PhD...

Im Focus: Scientists develop a semiconductor nanocomposite material that moves in response to light

In a paper in Scientific Reports, a research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute describes a novel light-activated phenomenon that could become the basis for applications as diverse as microscopic robotic grippers and more efficient solar cells.

A research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) has developed a revolutionary, light-activated semiconductor nanocomposite material that can be used...

Im Focus: Diamonds aren't forever: Sandia, Harvard team create first quantum computer bridge

By forcefully embedding two silicon atoms in a diamond matrix, Sandia researchers have demonstrated for the first time on a single chip all the components needed to create a quantum bridge to link quantum computers together.

"People have already built small quantum computers," says Sandia researcher Ryan Camacho. "Maybe the first useful one won't be a single giant quantum computer...

Im Focus: New Products - Highlights of COMPAMED 2016

COMPAMED has become the leading international marketplace for suppliers of medical manufacturing. The trade fair, which takes place every November and is co-located to MEDICA in Dusseldorf, has been steadily growing over the past years and shows that medical technology remains a rapidly growing market.

In 2016, the joint pavilion by the IVAM Microtechnology Network, the Product Market “High-tech for Medical Devices”, will be located in Hall 8a again and will...

Im Focus: Ultra-thin ferroelectric material for next-generation electronics

'Ferroelectric' materials can switch between different states of electrical polarization in response to an external electric field. This flexibility means they show promise for many applications, for example in electronic devices and computer memory. Current ferroelectric materials are highly valued for their thermal and chemical stability and rapid electro-mechanical responses, but creating a material that is scalable down to the tiny sizes needed for technologies like silicon-based semiconductors (Si-based CMOS) has proven challenging.

Now, Hiroshi Funakubo and co-workers at the Tokyo Institute of Technology, in collaboration with researchers across Japan, have conducted experiments to...
