The German IPv6 Council invites applications for the

INTERNATIONAL IPv6 APPLICATION CONTEST 2009

http://www.ipv6council.de/contest

The objectives of this contest are the generation of ideas and

applications, which help determine how to introduce IPv6, the internet

of the next generation, on a large scale and use it effectively. The

contest also provides an opportunity for the next generation of

application developers to gain experience with IPv6. The German IPv6

Council has been founded in 2007 at Hasso-Plattner-Institute in

Potsdam assisted by the German federal government and leading

representatives of the German internet industry in order to give a

political voice to the new internet generation IPv6. As the German

representative in the international IPv6 Forum, the German IPv6 Council

prepares, together with the German federal government, a roadmap for

the introduction and popularisation of IPv6 in Germany. Its clear

mission is to advocate IPv6 by improving technology, market, user, and

industry awareness of IPv6 and to create a sophisticated and secure

new internet.
