Das Thema ist in den letzten Jahren verstärkt in der Öffentlichkeit präsent: sei es in Print-, Radio- und TV-Beiträgen oder anlässlich von Preisverleihungen an Ehrenamtliche. Vor diesem Hintergrund ernannte der Rat der Europäischen Union das Jahr 2011 zum „Europäischen Jahr der Freiwilligentätigkeit“. Lisa Katrin Schürmann analysiert drei Kampagnen anlässlich dieses Schwerpunktjahres aus Deutschland, Schweden und der Schweiz.

By Anna Charny, Jean-Yves Le Boudec (auth.), Jon Crowcroft, James Roberts, Mikhail I. Smirnov (eds.)

The papers during this publication current a number of viewpoints at the layout and - plementation of recommendations for QoS engineering for net services.They have been chosen from greater than 70 submissions to the first foreign workshop on “Quality of destiny web prone” (QofIS) geared up via price motion 263. the focus of the papers is at the construction, con?guration and deployment of end-to-end providers over a QoS guaranteed net utilizing the IntServ (Integrated prone) and Di?Serv (Di?erentiated prone) types. the most technical p- gramme used to be accomplished by way of keynote talks: IETF Chair Fred Baker opened the workshop with a dialogue on significant net improvement instructions and Andrew M. Odlyzko of AT&T Labs learn gave the last speak on web charging concerns. The presentation of papers was once organised in nine classes. The emphasis of consultation 1 is on an evaluation of the fundamental construction blocks for a QoS guaranteed net, i.e., queueing and scheduling, which essentially de?nes the gap for end-to-end providers. The papers of this consultation talk about the boundaries we may perhaps anticipate from those development blocks, the problems of queueing and scheduling administration, and the parameters we have to song in a dynamic implementation. move regulate and congestion keep an eye on can't be thought of with out regard to the dominating influence of TCP. The key-phrase of consultation 2 is, as a result, Intern- pleasant version. 4 papers during this consultation are complementary and jointly current an rising figuring out of a simple optimum zone for such adaptation.
