Wireless applications have pervasively penetrated the everyday life. They visibly manifest themselves in the omnipresent (mobile) communication devices that are deeply rooted in the present day lifestyle (see the multitude of sound, image and data carrying systems surrounding us). They manifest themselves less visibly, but equally ubiquitously, in weather and traffic monitoring systems, in defence and security technology, etc. They are praised for supporting and facilitating our daily routine and are (in fact, unjustly) blamed for thoroughly invading our privacy. They are instrumental for locating endangered people and for ...
(FP6). It stands for "Automating Production of Cross Media Content for Multi-channel Distribution". Now it is under distribution as a framework, and is still being maintained and improved. A large part of the framework is under open source licensing. The AXMEDIS framework includes a set of tools, models, test cases, documents, etc. supporting the production and distribution of cross media content.

Spotlight on EU projects in trust and security
The Journal of Computer Security has launched a special issue highlighting the results of six projects funded under the 'Information society technologies' (IST) Thematic area of the EU's Sixth Framework Programme (FP6). The journal's editors called on the six projects to submit papers because they received exceptional reviews in the ICT [information and communication technology] Trust and Security EU calls. The special issue underlines the pivotal role security and trust play in research. Trust and security have also been instrumental in fuelling the EU's Framework Programmes (FPs) for research and ... market research, surveys and trends
HealthTech Wire : Perspective: European @neurIST project tackles ...
How likely is a rupture? This is the key question for doctors of patients with cerebral aneurysms. The EU-funded research project @neurIST is trying to develop an IT solution to help in the risk assessment process. Published: 07/17/2009 BRUXELLES, BELGIUM - (HealthTech Wire / Perspective) - The rupture of a cerebral aneurysm can have devastating effects on an individual: mortality is high, and survivors often suffer from stroke-like long-term disabilities. On the other hand, there are aneurysms that remain stable and never rupture. Surgical and endovascular interventions are possible, but these are not without risk. It is ... market research, surveys and trends

Prediction software helps in disaster control
EU-funded scientists have developed new statistical methods and software to help generate information on pollution and environmental threats. The system complements existing European-based air quality monitoring stations, which are effective but costly to set up. The INTAMAP ('Interoperability and automated mapping') project was funded EUR 1.86 million under the 'Information society technologies' (IST) Thematic area of the EU's Sixth Framework Programme (FP6). Air pollution monitors are used across Europe to generate information on nuclear and chemical spills, groundwater pollution, traffic fumes and ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
Males Given Virtual Female Bodies in EU-funded PRESENCCIA and TRAVERSE Projects
Technology created by European scientists has placed male volunteers into the virtual body of a woman. It is the only technology of its kind that convinces the user that the female body they are looking at is their own, providing an illusion not only of a different place but also of a different self. Presented in the journal Public Library of Science (PLoS) ONE, the research for the immersive virtual reality (IVR) initiative was part of the EU-funded PRESENCCIA and TRAVERSE projects, which received a total of EUR 8.81 million in support.  PRESENCCIA ('Presence: research encompassing sensory enhancement, neuroscience, ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Do we need a new terminology in offshore outsourcing? | LinkedIn ...
The past years I have been thinking regularly about the terminology in the offshoring world. The market has come up with a huge list of terms like: - Offshoring - Offshore outsourcing - Nearshoring - Nearshore outsourcing - Captive center - Outsourcing At the end of the day, my impression is that they are all describing one general thing: moving work to another country.
