Web Services is currently one of the hottest issues in the software industry. There are good reasons for predicting a success of Web Services. However, there are still a number of open issues. Is Web Services just another technology hype or the beginning of a new era in the evolution of information and communication technology? What will be the role for telcos in the emerging Web Service scenarios?
The new issue of ‘Eurescom mess@ge’, the quarterly magazine for R&D in telecoms, presents answers by experts. Jens Meinköhn from T-Systems Nova writes about the business models which an ongoing Eurescom project on XML Web Services identified as promising. He concludes that “Web Services extend the available technology for B2B eBusiness”. In his article about Web Service Orchestration Dr. Do van Thanh from Telenor comes to the conclusion that “Web Services are at the crossroads”. The basic standards have been agreed, he says, but the industry has to agree on further specifications to unfold the business benefits of Web Services.
Further topics of ‘Eurescom mess@ge’ 2/2003 include project results on Location Awareness and on the future role of Ethernet in the access network as well as a report about a new, industry-driven European initiative for collaborative R&D in telecommunications named CELTIC.

Researchers at the University of New Hampshire have captured a difficult-to-view singular event involving "magnetic reconnection"--the process by which sparse particles and energy around Earth collide producing a quick but mighty explosion--in the Earth's magnetotail, the magnetic environment that trails behind the planet.
Magnetic reconnection has remained a bit of a mystery to scientists. They know it exists and have documented the effects that the energy explosions can...
Biochips have been developed at TU Wien (Vienna), on which tissue can be produced and examined. This allows supplying the tissue with different substances in a very controlled way.
Cultivating human cells in the Petri dish is not a big challenge today. Producing artificial tissue, however, permeated by fine blood vessels, is a much more...
Faster and secure data communication: This is the goal of a new joint project involving physicists from the University of Würzburg. The German Federal Ministry of Education and Research funds the project with 14.8 million euro.
In our digital world data security and secure communication are becoming more and more important. Quantum communication is a promising approach to achieve...
On Saturday, 10 November 2018, the research icebreaker Polarstern will leave its homeport of Bremerhaven, bound for Cape Town, South Africa.
When choosing materials to make something, trade-offs need to be made between a host of properties, such as thickness, stiffness and weight. Depending on the application in question, finding just the right balance is the difference between success and failure
Now, a team of Penn Engineers has demonstrated a new material they call "nanocardboard," an ultrathin equivalent of corrugated paper cardboard. A square...
