The Open Geospatial Consortium, Inc. (OGC®) Seeks Public Comment on a Draft
Sensor Alert Service (SAS) Standard
The draft OGC® Sensor Alert Service standard defines an alert and notification mechanism that specifies how alert or alarm conditions are defined, detected, and made available to interested users. The Sensor Alert Service uses the Extensible Messaging and Presence Protocol (XMPP) to provide the push-based notification functionality. The focus of SAS is on alerts from sensors and sensor webs, a more narrow scope than a complete Web-wide alerting service.
This draft standard can be downloaded from the Standardization Section at Sensors Web Portal (http://www.sensorsportal.com):
Suggested additions, changes, and comments on this draft are welcome and encouraged. Submit comments via email to email@example.com Extensive comments may be made by editing the draft standard with track changes on. The public comment period will remain open until December 15, 2007.
Applied Research Roadmaps for Carbon Nanotubes: Opportunities, Requirements, Challenges
(ARCORC) Workshop at Nano Solutions 2007, Frankfurt, Germany, 23 November 2007
Munich, Germany. “Nano Solutions 2007“ (Frankfurt) will play host to a WTC workshop on the new roadmap for Carbon Nanotubes called ARCORC. For this study, WTC conducted interviews with key players worldwide. The results of this comprehensive survey will be presented exclusively and for the first time in a free-of-charge workshop to be held in Frankfurt on the 23rd November 2007.
Supported by the Sixth Framework Programme (FP6) of the European Community, the study’s goal was to develop a technology roadmap for Carbon Nanotube-based systems. “ARCORC” or the Applied Research Roadmaps for Carbon Nanotubes: Opportunities, Requirements, Challenges is the result of a one year investigation by WTC into technological trends and the current market situation.
Carbon nanotubes are among the most promising materials discovered in the “nano cosmos” up to now. Potential mass market applications for these materials include memory devices, fuel cells and drug delivery tools. The actors in some industries are already harvesting the fruits of early investment, but these same industries still lack a roadmap-–one that will help set a clear strategy in terms of development and time-to-market.
WTC will demonstrate possible technological development scenarios covering the next 5 to 15 years and detail the barriers and financial requirements. The study was led by WTC, in partner-ship with the University of Cambridge and Sineurop Nanotech GmbH from Germany.
Agenda: „Carbon Nanotubes Roadmaps - Opportunities, Requirements, Challenges“
Attendance is free. Please register by email and receive a ticket to the Nano Solutions exhibition free of charge: firstname.lastname@example.org
