Editors and Authors of “The Digital Review of Asia Pacific 2009-2010” will meet in Singapore, 2-4 March, 2008

26.02.2008
The Editorial Board and Authors of “The Digital Review of Asia Pacific ”, comprising some 50 experts from government, academe, industry and civil society, will be meeting in Singapore from March 2-4th at Sentosa’s Silosa Beach Hotel, to start planning for the 2009-2010 version of the Digital Review of Asia Pacific.

The biennial Digital Review of Asia Pacific is a comprehensive guide to the state-of-practice and trends in information and communication technologies for development (ICT4D) in Asia Pacific.

The third edition (2007–2008), which was launched in December 2007 at the Global Knowledge Conference in Kuala Lumpur, covers 31 countries and economies, including North Korea for the first time. Each country chapter presents key ICT policies, applications, and initiatives for national development. In addition, five thematic chapters provide a synthesis of some of the key issues in ICT4D in the region, including mobile and wireless technologies, risk communication, intellectual property regimes, and localization.

The publication’s Editorial Board and Authors, comprising some 50 experts from government, academe, industry and civil society, (see attached list), will be meeting in Singapore from March 2-4th at Sentosa’s Silosa Beach Hotel, to start planning for the 2009-2010 version of the Digital Review of Asia Pacific. The next version is expected to cover themes such as ICTs, Education and the Millennium Development Goals, Distance Education, ICTs and Nonformal Education, Private Public Partnership in ICTs for Education, and Knowledge and Innovation.

The Editorial Board is chaired by Dr Shahid Akhtar who was formerly the head of UNDP’s Asia Pacific Development Information Programme. The Digital Review project is coordinated by Dr Claude-Yves Charron, who is Secretary General of ORBICOM (the Network of UNESCO Chairs in Communications), and also Vice-Rector of the University of Quebec in Montreal, Canada.

The Digital Review of Asia Pacific project is supported by the International Development Research Centre of Canada.

Im Focus: The taming of the light screw

DESY and MPSD scientists create high-order harmonics from solids with controlled polarization states, taking advantage of both crystal symmetry and attosecond electronic dynamics. The newly demonstrated technique might find intriguing applications in petahertz electronics and for spectroscopic studies of novel quantum materials.

The nonlinear process of high-order harmonic generation (HHG) in gases is one of the cornerstones of attosecond science (an attosecond is a billionth of a...

Im Focus: Magnetic micro-boats

Nano- and microtechnology are promising candidates not only for medical applications such as drug delivery but also for the creation of little robots or flexible integrated sensors. Scientists from the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research (MPI-P) have created magnetic microparticles, with a newly developed method, that could pave the way for building micro-motors or guiding drugs in the human body to a target, like a tumor. The preparation of such structures as well as their remote-control can be regulated using magnetic fields and therefore can find application in an array of domains.

The magnetic properties of a material control how this material responds to the presence of a magnetic field. Iron oxide is the main component of rust but also...

Im Focus: Self-healing coating made of corn starch makes small scratches disappear through heat

Due to the special arrangement of its molecules, a new coating made of corn starch is able to repair small scratches by itself through heat: The cross-linking via ring-shaped molecules makes the material mobile, so that it compensates for the scratches and these disappear again.

Superficial micro-scratches on the car body or on other high-gloss surfaces are harmless, but annoying. Especially in the luxury segment such surfaces are...

Im Focus: Stellar cartography

The Potsdam Echelle Polarimetric and Spectroscopic Instrument (PEPSI) at the Large Binocular Telescope (LBT) in Arizona released its first image of the surface magnetic field of another star. In a paper in the European journal Astronomy & Astrophysics, the PEPSI team presents a Zeeman- Doppler-Image of the surface of the magnetically active star II Pegasi.

A special technique allows astronomers to resolve the surfaces of faraway stars. Those are otherwise only seen as point sources, even in the largest telescopes...

Im Focus: Heading towards a tsunami of light

Researchers at Chalmers University of Technology and the University of Gothenburg, Sweden, have proposed a way to create a completely new source of radiation. Ultra-intense light pulses consist of the motion of a single wave and can be described as a tsunami of light. The strong wave can be used to study interactions between matter and light in a unique way. Their research is now published in the scientific journal Physical Review Letters.

"This source of radiation lets us look at reality through a new angle - it is like twisting a mirror and discovering something completely different," says...
