This weekend my colleague and member of the TOTEM team Leif Oppermann is travelling to Berlin. (There are good train connections from here (Bonn) to Berlin, so Eyjafjallajökull will not be able to stop him.)
On Friday he is a speaker at the 1st European Augmented Reality Business Conference (ARBcon) before he will join the fun at the ARDevCamp Berlin on Saturday and talk about TOTEM there.
TOTEM is not the only project funded by the Programme Inter Carnot Fraunhofer (PICF) scheme. As the official PICF website describes, the goals for this funding programme are to:
Enhance scientific leadership in national and international R&D
Prepare the transfer of technology and knowledge to industry
Create long-term strategic French-German alliances between excellent research organizations
So on October 27th a few members of our project were invited to Bernardin's College in Paris to participate in the starting celebrations as this year's projects were the first ever to be funded. This is our poster from the poster session:
