1st International THESEUS Symposium

07.05.2009
From 29-30 June 2009 the German Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology will host the 1st International THESEUS Symposium for its flagshipprogram "THESEUS".

The International THESEUS Symposium aims at establishing collaborations and cross-fertilizations between projects on the Internet of the Future.

A number of countries have set up research programs and projects with different intentions based on different visions of what the Internet of the Future could and should be: Some of the research activities focus on the development of technologies and new standards. Others are more concerned with applications and future use of the Internet, or they look at its commercial exploitation. While some programs and projects seem to be complementary in what they do, others seem to overlap.

THESEUS is one of these projects conducted as a joint research project that involves major industries and academic institutions. The European Community funds quite a number of projects and programs with the aim to foster the transnational collaboration on the development of the Internet of the Future. Major initiatives have also been set up in Japan, Australia and on the American continent. We would like to share our vision of the Future Internet as an "Internet of Services" with these initiatives and would like to exchange information about these visions, approaches and technologies for a mutual benefit. The THESEUS Symposium will hopefully also be the take-off point for an International Cooperation Action that will be supported financially later on.

The program falls into two parts:

- In an Executive Session during the first day the program will focus on strategies for developing future technologies and applications for the Internet.

- In a Technology Session during the second day the program will focus on technology hot spots in the development of the Internet of the Future.

The program is meant to create a balance between views in different parts of the world as well as between research and industrial developments, and it will show how different governmental authorities take part in these developments with their funding strategies.

Im Focus: Nonstop Tranport of Cargo in Nanomachines

Max Planck researchers revel the nano-structure of molecular trains and the reason for smooth transport in cellular antennas.

Moving around, sensing the extracellular environment, and signaling to other cells are important for a cell to function properly. Responsible for those tasks...

Im Focus: UNH scientists help provide first-ever views of elusive energy explosion

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...

Im Focus: A Chip with Blood Vessels

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...

Im Focus: A Leap Into Quantum Technology

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...
