German IPv6 Council Starts Contest, Looking for Fresh IPv6 Ideas

Last week the German IPv6 Council initiated a contest for new ideas related to IPv6 where the council invited submissions of applications which are based on the new internet protocol. The council hopes the contest will be a helpful step towards an efficient and large deployment of IPv6. The IPv6 Council, founded in late 2007 in Potsdam, will award prices of up to 10,000 Euros to the best developers’ ideas for concepts, applications, and implementations. The winners will be announced and receive their awards at the 2nd German IPv6 Summit on May 14th, 2009 in Potsdam.

“The contest should provide an opportunity for software and application developers and interested parties in general to gain further experience in dealing with the new internet protocol,” Professor Christoph Meinel explained the objective.
