webinos 2nd cross-screen App Challenge
Release from Tue., January 22, 2013
Developers worldwide are invited to build cool apps based on the next generation of Web technologies: The international webinos project rewards the best entries in a brand new cross-screen application contest. The finalist apps will be presented to the awards event in Berlin at the 3rd annual FOKUS Media Web Symposium.
Following the successful first App Challenge contest which had been completed last October in Athens, webinos proudly announces the second cross-screen App Challenge. Next stop is Berlin and the best entries will have the chance to receive great publicity, meet the webinos partners and win great prizes.
All the applications have to be submitted until February 25. A webinos jury of domain experts will then select up to ten best ideas. The announcement of the finalists is scheduled for March 5. The finalists will be presented and the winners will be announced during the 3 annual FOKUS Media Web Symposium hosted by Fraunhofer FOKUS in Berlin, Germany on March 14 and 15. The prerequisite for participating to the competition is that the apps are using the webinos platform and APIs and integrate functionality of more than one device – i.e. that the apps are cross-screen.
The project webinos (Secure Web Operating System Application Environment) aims at delivering a platform for web applications across mobile, PC, home media (TV) and in-car devices. The project receives ten million Euros co-funding, under the EU FP7 ICT Programme, No 257103, and will run for three years starting in September 2010. webinos has been initiated by a research consortium with the Fraunhofer Institute FOKUS at the helm. More than 30 partners are represented within the consortium.
