    The sixth CTF3 collaboration meeting was held at CERN from the 1st to the 2nd November 2000. This meeting was devoted to the CTF3 combiner ring, delay loop and transfer lines, with the participation of members of the CLIC study group at CERN and of collaborators from INFN-Frascati. The CTF3 status has been summarized by the project leader, and several members of the INFN-Frascati group have presented an overview of the design activity of the different components. Working group sessions have been held on beam optics, on diagnostics and equipment and on RF deflectors. The main conclusions from the working groups have been reported at the end of the meeting. Issues that have been addressed include prototype design and construction (RF deflectors, path-length tuning wigglers, extraction kicker and vacuum chamber sections) and deadlines for component specifications. The impedance budget for the ring, delay loop and transfer lines, its impact on the choice of beam-position monitors and the problem of beam stability...

  2. PREFACE: The 6th Nordic Meeting on Nuclear Physics

    1990-01-01

    After an unintended time gap of five years, the series of regular Nordic meetings on nuclear physics was continued with the 6th Nordic Meeting, August 10-15, 1989. The site was Utgarden in the outskirts of Kopervik, the administration center for the Saga island of Karmøy on the west-coast of Norway. Utgarden, a "peoples high-school'' with a kitchen, housing facility and a neighboring modern gymnasium with fine lecture halls, proved to be an inexpensive and adequate site for the meeting. From the time of the Vikings, the sound between Karmøyy and the mainland has been a vital part of the way to the north. Mobility and international orientation is still a signature of an area where today essential parts of Norway's oil- and metal industry are located. The conference program included a session on nuclear physics in industry and society, with contributed talks from a number of companies and technology/research institutions, which also sponsored the meeting. Lunch visits to Hydro's aluminium plant on Karmøy or alternatively to Statoil's gas terminal on the mainland, were included in the program. The scientific program gives a cross section of nuclear physics activities in which researchers from the Nordic countries are involved nowadays. The spectrum is rich, and the emphasis has shifted to higher energies than was the case five years ago. We appreciate the possibility to present this overview in a separate volume of Physica Scripta. The present issue covers nearly all the talks given at the meeting. The order deviates, however, somewhat from that of the conference program. The organizing committee tried to encourage in various ways the participation of young physicists; this effort was truely rewarded. The young participants put their imprint on the activities in the lecture halls and even more on the soccer arena. The meeting was sponsored by The University of Bergen, The Nordic Accelerator Committee, NORDITA, The Norwegian Research Council for Science and the

    The International Diabetes Federation predicts that, over the next twenty years, the largest increase in the prevalence of diabetes will be in the Africa region. Recognizing an unmet need for more focus on Africa and engagement with African scholars, the Islet Society held its 6th annual meeting July 20-21, 2014 in Stellenbosch, South Africa. Here, we present a report that covers the presentations and discussion points from that meeting. Work was presented on a variety of topics and included presentations by a significant proportion of Africa diabetes researchers. Overall, it was an excellent conference, with many new international collaborations initiated. We hope that other groups will also respond to the need for more conferences in Africa and focused on Africa.

    The Synthetic Biology conference series (SBx.0) is the preeminent academic meeting in synthetic biology. Organized by the BioBricks Foundation, the SBx.0 conference series brings together leading researchers, students, industry executives, and policy makers from around the world to share, consider, debate, and plan efforts to make biology easier to engineer. Historically held every two years, the SBx.0 conferences are held in alternating locations in the United States, Europe, and Asia to encourage global participation and collaboration so that the ramifications of synthetic biology research and development are most likely to be safe ethical, and beneficial. On 9-11 July 2013, the 6th installment of the synthetic biology conference series (SB6.0) was held on the campus of Imperial College London (http://sb6.biobricks.org). The SB6.0 conference was attended by over 700 people, and many more were able to participate via video digital conference (http://sb6.biobricks.org/digital-conference/). Over the course of three days, the SB6.0 conference agenda included plenary sessions, workshops, and poster presentations covering topics ranging from the infrastructure needs arising when “Systematic Engineering Meets Biological Complexity” and design-led considerations for “Connecting People and Technologies” to discussions on “Engineering Biology for New Materials,” “Assessing Risk and Managing Biocontainment,” and “New Directions for Energy and Sustainability.” The $10,150 grant awarded by the U.S. Department of Energy (DE-SC0010233) to the BioBricks Foundation was used to provide partial reimbursement for the travel expenses of leading researchers from the United States to speak at the SB6.0 conference. A total of $9,450 was used to reimburse U.S. speakers for actual expenses related to the SB6.0 conference, including airfare (economy or coach only), ground transportation, hotel, and registration fees. In addition, $700 of the grant was used to offset

    On behalf of the Subsurface Biogeochemical Research (SBR) program managers in the Climate and Environmental Sciences Division (CESD), Office of Biological and Environmental Research (BER), welcome to the 2011 SBR Principal Investigators meeting. Thank you in advance for your attendance and your presentations at this year's meeting. As the events in Japan continue to unfold, we are all reminded that the research we perform on radionuclide behavior in the environment has implications beyond legacy waste cleanup and in fact has its place in the discussion on the expanded use of nuclear power. As in the past, there are three broad objectives to the Principal Investigators meeting: (1) to provide opportunities to share research results and promote interactions among the SBR scientists and other invited guests; (2) to evaluate the progress of each project within the program; and (3) to showcase the scientific expertise and research progress over the past year to senior managers within the DOE Office of Science, the technology offices within DOE, and other invited attendees from other Federal Agencies. This past year has seen a few significant changes within BER and within the SBR program. In November, our Associate Director for BER, Anna Palmisano, retired from Federal service. Just this month, Dr. Sharlene Weatherwax (Division Director for Biological Systems Sciences) has been named as the new Associate Director for BER. In August, BER welcomed Dr. Gary Geernaert as the new Division Director for CESD. Gary joins the division from Los Alamos National Laboratory with a background in atmospheric science. Within the SBR program, a new Strategic Plan was completed last June (currently posted on the SBR and the Office of Science website). The new strategic plan is intended to foster integration within the Environmental Systems Science portion of the BER budget that includes both SBR and Terrestrial Ecosystem Sciences (TES). Both these programs share a goal of advancing a

The Board Members of Canada, EU, Japan, RF and of the CTA International Team participated in the Meeting, which was chaired by Acad. E. Velikhov. The major item on the Meeting Agenda was the discussion of the scope of the CTA. In this discussion the following comments were expressed: One of the prime objectives during the CTA is to develop technical specifications for procurement of critical items (magnets, vacuum vessel, and buildings). It was noted that the discussions with potential suppliers should confirm manufacturing processes in details in order to explore possible schedule reduction strategies. Safety analysis and licensing preparation should proceed on all proposed sites up to the preferred site designation, to ensure the overall implementation schedule is minimized and to resolve major technical issues needed for licensing. Several R and D issues remain to be further developed during the CTA. Special attention should be given by the Participants to two areas: Diagnostics; Heating and Current Drive Systems. Arrangements for continuation of the ITER Physics Expert Groups activities should be provided. To this end a new framework, called International Tokamak Physics Activity, is being planned. The Board encouraged the Participants' Representatives in the Co-ordinating committee of this activity to support the preparation for urgent Topical Group Meetings. The Board agreed that the Design Authority will be invested in the International Team and that proposals for site specific design changes should be agreed upon by the International Team Leader before being studied in detail. The Meeting agreed on some arrangements which will remain from the EDA, namely the ITER EDA Council Office in Moscow as Office of the PB Chair, and the ITER Office located at the IAEA in Vienna as agreed by the IAEA.

    In temperate latitudes sheep have a seasonal reproductive behaviour, which imposes strong constraints on husbandry in terms of work organization and availability of animal products. During the last 50 years, researchers have focused on understanding the mechanisms driving small ruminants' reproduction cycles and finding ways to control them. This characteristic is inherited from their wild ancestor. However, the history of its evolution over the 10 millennia that separates present day European sheep from their Near Eastern ancestors' remains to be written. This perspective echoes archaeologists' current attempts at reconstructing ancient pastoral societies' socio-economical organization. Information related to birth seasonality may be retrieved directly from archaeological sheep teeth. The methodology consists of reconstructing the seasonal cycle record in sheep molars, through sequential analysis of the stable oxygen isotope composition (δ 18O) of enamel. Because the timing of tooth development is fixed within a species, inter-individual variability in this parameter reflects birth seasonality. A review of the data obtained from 10 European archaeological sites dated from the 6th to the 3rd millennia BC is provided. The results demonstrate a restricted breeding season for sheep: births occurred over a period of 3 to 4 months, from late winter to early summer at latitudes 43°N to 48°N, while a later onset was observed at a higher latitude (59°N). All conclusions concurred with currently held expectations based on present day sheep physiology, which, aside from the historical significance, contributes to the reinforcing of the methodological basis of the approach. Further study in this area will permit regional variability attributable to technical choices, within global schemes, to be fully reported.

    2009-01-01

    Reminder Given the current state of the financial markets and the continuing uncertainty as to their future evolution, we begin by reiterating the introductory statement of the last report from the Pension Fund: "The CERN pension scheme is based on the principle of defined benefits, so beneficiaries continue to receive the benefits to which they are entitled in accordance with the Rules of the Pension Fund. This means that pension entitlements under the Rules are not directly affected by the financial crisis and the current economic situation. However, the adjustment of pensions to the cost of living is not automatic and, under the method applied since 2006, must take into account the Fund’s financial position." Meeting of the Pension Fund Governing Board (PFGB) The PFGB held its ninth and tenth meetings on 1st December 2008 and 11 February 2009 respectively.

    2004-01-01

    The extended abstracts which are submitted here present a summary of the proceedings of the 6th International Workshop/12th LH Gray Workshop: Microbeam Probes of Cellular Radiation Response, held at St. Catherine's College, University of Oxford, UK on March, 29th-31st, 2003. In 1993 the 4th LH Gray Workshop entitled ''Microbeam Probes of Cellular Radiation Response'' was held at the Gray Cancer Institute in Northwood. This was organized by Prof BD Michael, Dr M. Folkard and Dr KM Prise and brought together 40 participants interested in developing and applying new microbeam technology to problems in radiation biology (1). The workshop was an undoubted success and has spawned a series of subsequent workshops every two years. In the past, these workshops have been highly successful in bringing together groups interested in developing and applying micro-irradiation techniques to the study of cell and tissue damage by ionizing radiations. Following the first microbeam workshop, there has been a rapid growth in the number of centres developing radiobiology microbeams, or planning to do so and there are currently 15-20 worldwide. Much of the recent research using microbeams has used them to study low-dose effects and ''non-targeted'' responses such bystander effects, genomic instability and adaptive responses. The goal of the 6th workshop was to build on our knowledge of the development of microbeam approaches and the application to radiation biology in the future with the meeting stretching over a 3 day period. Over 80 participants reviewed the current state of radiobiology microbeam research worldwide and reported on new technological developments both in the fields of physics and biology.

    HR Department

    2009-01-01

    Reminder Given the current state of the financial markets and the continuing uncertainty as to their future evolution, we begin by reiterating the introductory statement of the last report from the Pension Fund: "The CERN pension scheme is based on the principle of defined benefits, so beneficiaries continue to receive the benefits to which they are entitled in accordance with the Rules of the Pension Fund. This means that pension entitlements under the Rules are not directly affected by the financial crisis and the current economic situation. However, the adjustment of pensions to the cost of living is not automatic and, under the method applied since 2006, must take into account the Fund’s financial position." Meeting of the Pension Fund Governing Board (PFGB) The PFGB held its ninth and tenth meetings on 1st December 2008 and 11 February 2009 respectively. At the ninth meeting, the Governing Board bade farewell to P. Lambert, who had been an expert member since November 2007 and a membe...

  3. Are board meetings proactive or reactive to performance?

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    2008-11-01

    Full Text Available The purpose of this paper is to investigate the relationship between the intensity of board activity, as represented by board meeting frequency, and firm financial performance, using data from the top 500 Australian companies. Firm performance measures include return on assets, return on equity and shareholder return; several control variables are introduced in the analysis. The results indicate that board meeting frequency has a positive impact on subsequent shareholder return. Regarding the explanatory factors for the level of board activity, it is reported that firms with more board committees tend to have relatively more board and committee meetings; firms with larger boards have less board meetings. In addition, lower managerial ownership leads to more committee meetings.

  13. 6th International Symposium on Thermal Expansion

    CERN Document Server

    1978-01-01

    This 6th International Symposium on Thermal Expansion, the first outside the USA, was held on August 29-31, 1977 at the Gull Harbour Resort on Hecla Island, Manitoba, Canada. Symposium Chairman was Ian D. Peggs, Atomic Energy of Canada Limited, and our continuing sponsor was CINDAS/Purdue University. We made considerable efforts to broaden the base this year to include more users of expansion data but with little success. We were successful, however, in establishing a session on liquids, an area which is receiving more attention as a logical extension to the high-speed thermophysical property measurements on materials at temperatures close to their melting points. The Symposium had good international representation but the overall attendance was, disappointingly, relatively low. Neverthe­ less, this enhanced the informal atmosphere throughout the meeting with a resultant frank exchange of information and ideas which all attendees appreciated. A totally new item this year was the presentation of a bursary to ...

    Report on the Outcome of TREF's May Meeting J. van der Boon, Director of Administration, briefly reported on the outcome of TREF's first meeting of the year on 18 May. In the framework of follow-up to the 2000 five-yearly review, the Forum had heard status reports on preparations for the implementation of the new career structure on 1 September 2001 and on the introduction of long-term care provisions, and had examined an information document concerning the 0.3% discrepancy in the net salary adjustment on 1 January 2001. Following discussion, it had recommended that a proposal to correct the discrepancy, backdated to 1 January, be submitted to the Finance Committee at its next meeting on 13 June. The Forum had also discussed a set of proposed amendments to the tenth edition of the Staff Rules and Regulations, essentially relating to the implementation of the new career structure and to terminology, as well as a status report on voluntary programmes (Saved Leave, Progressive Retirement and Part-Time Work as a ...

    For informationOutcome of the May and June meetings of TREFThe Director of Administration, M. Robin, reported on the outcome of the TREF meetings held on 30-31 May and 19-20 June, which had essentially been devoted to matters connected with the ongoing five-yearly remuneration review, namely the results of the data collection enquiry and the career structure. The Management had presented a first proposal on the career structure and ideas on possible measures to be presented in September. Over the course of the Forum's first debate of the various issues, a wide spectrum of opinions had been expressed with some delegates asking for more radical changes in the career structure. It had clearly emerged that a considerable amount of work would be needed over the coming six months in order to reach conclusions.Outcome of the June meetings of the SPC, FC, CC and CouncilThe Director-General reported on the recent session of the CERN Council and its committees.

    2000-01-01

    LEP running The Director-General announced that on 14 September, in accordance with a recommendation by the CERN Research Board on the proposal of the LEP Experiments Committee, he had taken the decision to extend the LEP experimental run until 2 November 2000 following the appearance of events in late August hinting at a new state at a mass of about 114 GeV (see report in Weekly Bulletin No. 39/2000 for details). He explained that, while the extra month’s running would mean postponing the start-up of LEP dismantling to 6 November, it should not have an impact on the LHC completion date, and that the associated costs, amounting to some 8 MCHF including electricity, would be covered inside the existing budget. The data collected during the extended period of operation would be presented to the LEP Experiments Committee on 3 November. S. Myers, Leader of SL Division, presented a brief status report on the performance of LEP in 2000, which had been very impressive. Some technical problems in recent days had cau...

    2000-01-01

    For information'Y2K' Follow-up ReportThe CERN Y2K co-ordinator, S. Jarp (IT Division), reported that CERN had not encountered any significant problems with the Y2K bug at the turn of the century, although a couple of real Y2K problems had occurred, which had been quickly resolved. That outcome had been possible thanks to a programme of concerted action over several months discussed and agreed by the Management Board in February 1999, which had included a complete shutdown of the Computer Centre as the cheapest, safe stand most efficient option. Following the closure of systems on 30 December to avoid the potential risks associated with operations spanning 1999 and 2000, user services had been successfully brought back up on 2 January with only a few minor hitches, ready for the re-opening of the Laboratory on 3 January. He stressed that, in spite of claims by the world's press that Y2K dangers had been greatly exaggerated, the efforts made had been fully justified since, without them, the Organisation would h...

    Report on the Outcome of the June Meetings of the Scientific Policy Committee, Finance Committee and Committee of Council and the June Council Session. The Director-General reported on a selection of highlights from the latest meetings of the Council and its committees in the week beginning 11th June. On the recommendation of the Finance Committee and Committee of Council, the Council had approved the Management's proposal to correct the discrepancy identified in the net salary adjustment implemented on 1st January 2001 by retroactively increasing the scale of basic salaries and stipends to achieve the 2.8% average net salary adjustment approved in December 2000 in the framework of the five-yearly review. The Council had also taken note of a report by the Working Group on the Enlargement of CERN's Membership, set up by the Committee of Council in March 2000 to study the conditions and consequences of the future accession of new Member States to the Organization, and had approved its recommendations for new co...

    2002-01-01

    Outcome of the Meeting of TREF on 23 October 2002 The Director of Administration, J. van der Boon, reported that at its meeting the previous day the Tripartite Employment Conditions Forum (TREF) had examined an information document on the adjustment of the scale of basic salaries for 2003 and a proposal for the 2003 adjustment of pensions. It had taken note that, in accordance with the revised formula adopted during the last five-yearly review, the calculated salary index applicable with effect from 1st January 2003 amounted to 1.2%, taking account of the Geneva cost-of-living movement for the twelve-month period beginning August 2001 and of the average movements of real net salaries of the Swiss Federal civil servants and the civil servants of nine other Member States from June 2001 to June 2002. Given that the majority of TREF members had been in favour of applying the calculated 1.2% salary adjustment index, a formal proposal to that effect would be submitted to the Finance Committee in November in the fra...

    2002-01-01

    Medium-Term Plan The Director-General presented a preview of the Medium-Term Plan to be submitted to the Council and its committees in June for approval, outlining the limited but important changes and additions to the scientific and financial details with respect to those set out in the Preliminary Orientations document examined at the March meetings. New elements included, in particular, the 90 MCHF advance payment from Switzerland announced in March, an additional contribution from India, a shutdown of the PS in 2005, additional money for operations, additional CNGS costs and the reprofiling of LHC expenditure. He noted that the planning period concerned was the customary four years (2003-2006) but that a projection covering the whole LHC construction and debt repayment period until 2010 would also be provided. Although hard choices were still the order of the day, significant improvements in the planning had nevertheless been achieved since March thanks to various iterations of the planning figures combin...

    Report on LEP running The Director-General recalled that on 14 September, on the proposal of the LEP Experiments Committee (LEPC), the Management had decided to continue the LEP experimental run for one month beyond the scheduled final shutdown following the observance by ALEPH in late August of candidate Higgs events at a mass of around 114 GeV. The data collected by the four experimental collaborations during the extended period of operation, due to end on 2 November, would be presented at a special LEP seminar and to the LEPC on 3 November. S. Myers, Leader of SL Division, informed the Management Board that, in spite of some recent disruption in running caused by technical problems mostly in the SPS electricity distribution network, LEP was presently on course to meet the integrated luminosity target of between 130 and 140 pb-1 set by the Research Board in order to double the available statistics. Stating that the Management would examine the conclusions to be drawn from the extended run in the light of th...

    Status of Earned Value Management (EVM) In his capacity as EVM Project Leader, J. Ferguson, Leader of AS Division, announced that significant progress had been made since his last status report to the Management Board the previous month and that the measures adopted in early January to accelerate completion of the current EVM data collection phase had now been applied to 16 of the 23 groups concerned. As a result, a large fraction of the materials and industrial services resources for the LHC machine had now been incorporated in the system for those groups, while the data for the final seven groups should be collected in the coming weeks in accordance with the ambitious but feasible schedule announced at the Board's January meeting. He was therefore cautiously optimistic that the end-of-March/early April deadline for completing that stage of the EVM preparations would be met. The period from April to June would then see intensive efforts to fine-tune the data and ensure consistent reporting across all the gro...

    2002-01-01

    Composition of the new Staff Association Executive Committee The Management Board took note of the composition of the new Staff Association Executive Committee and congratulated Dr J.-P. Matheys on his re-election as President and Dr M. Goossens and Mr M. Vitasse on their election as Vice-Presidents. Outcome of the June Council week The Director-General presented the main results of the meetings of the Council and its committees during the week of 17-21 June. He reported that, following discussion of the final report by the External Review Committee at the various committees, the Council had accepted the ERC's recommendations on the LHC Project and the management of the Organization, expressing the view that the report and the Management's proposals constituted an important step towards resolving the problems identified since the emergence of the LHC funding shortfall in the second half of 2001 and re-establishing an atmosphere of trust. The extra costs for the LHC Project would be covered by a balanced packa...

    2000-01-01

    Report on the 2000-2001 Shutdown Activities S. Myers, Leader of SL Division, reviewed the status of the LEP shutdown programme and the main modifications to be made to the SPS during the 2000-2001 winter shutdown beginning 20 November in preparation for future LHC activities. Presenting the 2001 SPS schedule approved by the Research Board on 23 November, which provided for a proton run starting on 12 July, he stressed that meeting the planned completion dates for the upgrades and alterations to the various buildings and equipment concerned was critical to avoid any delays in SPS physics in 2001. In that context, it was hoped that the present delay in the civil engineering for the water-cooling tower at Point 1 could be offset later on during the cooling and ventilation work phase. Following the Directorate's decision on 8 November not to extend LEP physics into 2001, work on the LEP shutdown was now well under way, with several zones currently in the process of being made safe and dismantling occurring in oth...

To allow the Human Resources Review Board (HRRB) and the Planning Unit to pursue their preparatory work in parallel, divisions were requested to comply with the 1st September deadline for the prioritisation of the specific work packages and services needed to fulfil their respective mandates, with consolidated data for each sector to be submitted to the Chairman of the HRRB, J. van der Boon, by 21st September. Ultimately, the results of the 'Morges III' exercise would serve as the basis for the 2003-2010 staff plan to be presented to the Council in December. Preparation of the September Committee Meetings The Director-General observed that one of the main items on the agenda of the Committee of Council's me...

  5. 6th International Parallel Tools Workshop

    Brinkmann, Steffen; Gracia, José; Resch, Michael; Nagel, Wolfgang

    2013-01-01

    The latest advances in the High Performance Computing hardware have significantly raised the level of available compute performance. At the same time, the growing hardware capabilities of modern supercomputing architectures have caused an increasing complexity of the parallel application development. Despite numerous efforts to improve and simplify parallel programming, there is still a lot of manual debugging and  tuning work required. This process  is supported by special software tools, facilitating debugging, performance analysis, and optimization and thus  making a major contribution to the development of  robust and efficient parallel software. This book introduces a selection of the tools, which were presented and discussed at the 6th International Parallel Tools Workshop, held in Stuttgart, Germany, 25-26 September 2012.

    These volumes constitute the Proceedings of the 6th International Workshop on Soft Computing Applications, or SOFA 2014, held on 24-26 July 2014 in Timisoara, Romania. This edition was organized by the University of Belgrade, Serbia in conjunction with Romanian Society of Control Engineering and Technical Informatics (SRAIT) - Arad Section, The General Association of Engineers in Romania - Arad Section, Institute of Computer Science, Iasi Branch of the Romanian Academy and IEEE Romanian Section.                 The Soft Computing concept was introduced by Lotfi Zadeh in 1991 and serves to highlight the emergence of computing methodologies in which the accent is on exploiting the tolerance for imprecision and uncertainty to achieve tractability, robustness and low solution cost. Soft computing facilitates the use of fuzzy logic, neurocomputing, evolutionary computing and probabilistic computing in combination, leading to the concept of hybrid intelligent systems.        The combination of ...

    2018-04-03

    The 6th International Symposium on Regenerative Rehabilitation, hosted by the Alliance for Regenerative Rehabilitation Research and Training (AR 3 T), included a preconference meeting of institutional representatives of the International Consortium of Regenerative Rehabilitation, keynote talks from distinguished scientists, platform and poster presentations from experts and trainees, panel discussions and postconference workshops. The following priorities were identified: increasing rigor in basic, preclinical and clinical studies, especially the use of better controls; developing better outcome measures for preclinical and clinical trials; focusing on developing more tissue-based interventions versus cell-based interventions; including regenerative rehabilitation in curricula of professional programs like occupational and physical therapy; and developing better instruments to quantify rehabilitative interventions.

    CERN Document Server

    1992-01-01

    The sixthInternational Conference on General Inequalities was held from Dec. 9 to Dec. 15, 1990, at the Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach (Black Fa­ rest, Germany). The organizing committee was composed of W.N. Everitt (Birm­ ingham), L. Losonczi (Debrecen) and W. Walter (Karlsruhe). Dr. A. Kovacec ( Coimbra) served cheerfully and efficiently as secretary of the meeting. The con­ ference was attended by 44 participants from 20 countries. Yet again the importance of inequalities in both pure and applied mathematics was made evident from the wide range of interests of the individual participants, and from the wealth of new results announced. New inequalities were presented in the usual spread of the subject areas now expected for these meetings: Classical and functional analysis, existence and boundary value problems for both ordinary and partial differential equations, with special contributions to computer science, quantum holography and error analysis. More strongly than ever, the role played ...

  3. Proceeding of 6th short conference on neutron radiography

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Katsurayama, Kohsuke; Hiraoka, Eiichi; Tsujimoto, Tadashi

    1984-01-01

    The 6th short conference on neutron radiography was held on August 30 and 31, 1983, at the Research Reactor Institute, Kyoto niversity, as a part of the joint research program of the Institute. During the period since the first meeting in November, 1970, steady development was made in both research and practical use of neutron radiography in Japan owing to the persistent effort of the persons concerned. In the conference, 70 persons participated, and 21 papers were presented. The problems treated were the apparatuses of neutron television, neutron radiography and neutron photography, the various application of neutron radiography, the standard of neutron radiography and others. The high value of neutron radiography and the increasing demand to use this technique were shown in this meeting. Considering the recent rapid development of new technology, it is expected that neutron radiography will find the wide varieties of application in the near future. The proceedings of the conference are published by collecting the gists of papers, hoping to enhance joint effort and the exchange of information to develop neutron radiography. (Kako, I.)

    CERN Document Server

    Jr, Jr; Ioana, Cornel; Marwan, Norbert

    2016-01-01

    The chapters in this book originate from the research work and contributions presented at the Sixth International Symposium on Recurrence Plots held in Grenoble, France in June 2015. Scientists from numerous disciplines gathered to exchange knowledge on recent applications and developments in recurrence plots and recurrence quantification analysis. This meeting was remarkable because of the obvious expansion of recurrence strategies (theory) and applications (practice) into ever-broadening fields of science. It discusses real-world systems from various fields, including mathematics, strange attractors, applied physics, physiology, medicine, environmental and earth sciences, as well as psychology and linguistics. Even readers not actively researching any of these particular systems will benefit from discovering how other scientists are finding practical non-linear solutions to specific problems. The book is of interest to an interdisciplinary audience of recurrence plot users and researchers interested in time...

    CERN Multimedia

    2003-01-01

    Status of Earned Value Management (EVM) J. Ferguson, the EVM Project Leader, said that he was pleased to announce that the initial intensive EVM data collection phase concerning materials and industrial services for the LHC machine had been completed on 15th April, albeit with some minor issues outstanding and the quality of data still needing to be refined in certain cases. He therefore wished to thank all the groups and divisions involved for their efforts and cooperation. Since the 15th April initialisation of the data, all holders of active LHC work units had been contacted by e-mail for details of the current status of their activities and would henceforth be required to submit updates on a monthly basis. Weekly helpdesks providing direct support and assistance to those responsible for the monthly progress reports would be held every Friday morning until the end of May, and "hands-on" training sessions were also now underway. The Management Board expressed satisfaction at the progress on the implementat...

    Status of Earned Value Management (EVM) J. Ferguson, the EVM Project Leader, reported that the concerted EVM data collection phase that had begun in January was nearing completion, with the last of the 23 groups concerned having begun the data collection process and data corresponding to over 85% of the overall LHC cost-to-completion figure now incorporated in the system. The project team was working closely with the groups that had yet to submit their full data to ensure that the exercise was completed by Easter. The period leading up to the June meetings of the Council and its committees, at which the first EVM report was due to be presented, would then be devoted to tuning the data and ensuring consistent reporting across all the groups concerned. Preparation of the March Meetings of the Council and its Committees The Director-General stated that, in addition to regular items of business, such as the approval of the 2003 Budget at 2003 prices, contract adjudications and a progress report on technology tra...

  11. Board meeting frequency and corporate social responsibility (CSR reporting: Evidence from Malaysia

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Nurulyasmin Binti Ju Ahmad

    2017-05-01

    Full Text Available This study aims at determining the effectiveness of board meeting frequency on Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR reporting by public listed companies on the Main Market of Bursa Malaysia. A CSR reporting index consisting of 51 items was developed based on six themes: General, Community, Environment, Human Resource, Marketplace and Other. A content analysis was used to determine the extent of CSR reporting. An Ordinary Least Square (OLS regression was employed in determining the association between board meeting frequency and CSR reporting. The finding of the study is that advising tendency (frequency of board meetings is not associated with CSR reporting. Overall this study strengthens the idea that advising tendency of the board is essential to companies in order to safeguard all stakeholders’ interests. Accordingly, regulators and policymakers should be more stringent in monitoring company’s conformance towards regulations. This study provides a new avenue of knowledge and contributes to the literature on the practices of the board of directors and corporate social responsibility reporting in the context of a semi-developed country

  9. MANAGEMENT BOARD MEETING OF 15th JANUARY 2003

    CERN Multimedia

    2003-01-01

    Progress Report on Earned Value Management (EVM) In his capacity as EVM Project Leader, J. Ferguson, Leader of AS Division, presented a progress report on the implementation of the EVM system, focussing on recent measures adopted to accelerate completion of the data collection phase. He announced that, at a general meeting in December 2002 attended by representatives of the 23 groups and 5 divisions concerned, it had been agreed to apply the efficient data collection model used by the LHC-MMS group to the remaining groups, with a view to finalising that stage of the preparations for EVM by the end of March 2003. The model, which consisted of a concerted burst of effort lasting three weeks, would be taken up by two new groups each week in accordance with an ambitious but feasible schedule, so that by the time the exercise was in full swing a total of six groups would be taking part at any one time. Once all of its data had been submitted, each group would then enter the reporting cycle within a month. Given t...

    2003-01-01

    Status Report on Earned Value Management (EVM) J. Ferguson, the EVM Project Leader, announced that EVM progress reporting was now well in hand and entering a routine phase of operation. Some 2400 requests for details of the current status of activities had been issued to the holders of the 1750 active LHC work units, and reports had now been received for over 80% of those concerned. The EVM Project team was working closely with the divisional coordinators to improve the quality of data and, for the outstanding 20%, to understand why reports had not been submitted and to resolve any problems. The team would also be meeting the divisional coordinators the following week to set the priorities for the next stages of the EVM Project, which would subsequently be reviewed with the LHC Project Leader, L. Evans. The first EVM-based status report was due to be presented to the Finance Committee in September 2003, followed by a report to the LHC Cost and Schedule Review Committee. Concerning the integration of data on t...

    CERN Multimedia

    2003-01-01

    Status Report on Earned Value Management (EVM) J. Ferguson, the EVM Project Leader, stated that EVM reporting was in a steady phase of operation. Some 1860 work units were currently active, and over 3000 of a total of 10,500 had already been completed. Issues relating to the increasing schedule variance, which was thought to be largely attributable to a sub-optimal definition of the planned value model rather than to delays in activities, were currently under discussion with the LHC Project Leader. Work on the contract alignment tool was nearing completion, with particular attention being paid to improving integration between EVM, the CFU (Contract Follow-Up) tool and the accounting system. Discussions with AB Division had resulted in the launching of a pilot project aimed at establishing a consolidated staff plan by tracking all the Division's activities within the PPT application. An EVM report had been presented to the LHC Cost and Schedule Review Committee at its meeting earlier that week and had been ver...

  12. MANAGEMENT BOARD MEETING OF 4TH DECEMBER 2003

    CERN Multimedia

    2003-01-01

    Status Report on Earned Value Management (EVM) J. Ferguson, the EVM Project Leader, stated that, from 1st September to 1st December, i.e. the period covered by the EVM status report to be presented to the Finance Committee at its forthcoming meeting, over 2800 of the 10,700 or so work units had been active and about 420 had been completed, bringing the total number of completed work units to more than 3100. Earned Value had risen by some 132 MCHF, with Cost Variance increasing from a favourable 15 MCHF to 28 MCHF, mainly due to the time lag between the recording of earned value and the execution of payments; Schedule Variance had increased from an unfavourable -117 MCHF to -168 MCHF, essentially due to delays in the delivery of important components. In the coming months, all major contracts would be adjusted to ensure a better matching between probable delivery dates and reality. On the development side, the EVM team was continuing to focus its efforts on the contract maintenance functional...

    The Governing Board of the Pension Fund held its 143rd and 144th meetings on 16 May and 13 June respectively. At the first of these two meetings, the Board took note of the report by the Austrian Court of Audit on the 2005 financial year and of the associated comments by the Administration of the Fund. It also listened to a report by the Chairman of the Investment Committee on the latter's 10 May meeting, at which the two fund managers responsible for the "QUAM" and "Far East Ex-Japan" portfolios had been interviewed and their performances judged satisfactory. The Committee had also decided to commission ORTEC to carry out a full assets/liabilities modelling study during the current year. During the meeting, the Board also approved a document setting out its position on the CERN debt to the Pension Fund, which would be submitted to the Finance Committee and Council in June. It underlined that the reimbursement of the debt would be advantageous for the Fund as well as for the Laboratory and that it would re...

  15. Facilitating Site Specific and Citizens Advisory Boards: Running Effective Meetings that Involve Complex Technical Issues

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Freeman, J.

    2009-01-01

    Environmental cleanup issues at federal sites are more often than not on the agendas of meetings of the Site Specific Advisory Boards (SSABs), also called Citizens Advisory Boards (CABs), that exist at most U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) sites with an Environmental Management (EM) mission. In 1994, when Congress established these committees comprised of local citizens, it enabled community stakeholders to become more directly involved in DOE EM cleanup decisions. This involvement is to help the agency make cost-effective and environmentally sound decisions which lead to faster, safer cleanups. Eight local Boards that fall under the Federal Advisory Committee Act-chartered EM SSAB charter are found in Hanford, Washington; Idaho; Northern New Mexico; Nevada; Oak Ridge, Tennessee; Paducah, Kentucky; Portsmouth, Ohio; and at the Savannah River Site in South Carolina. These boards provide advice and recommendations about EM site-specific issues such as cleanup standards (how clean is clean?), environmental restoration, waste management, the stabilization and disposal of non-stockpile nuclear materials, future land use and long-term stewardship, risk assessment and management, and cleanup science and technology activities. These issues are, by their very nature, loaded with complicated technical terms and strategies, scientific data and interpretations, and long histories of studies and reports. The members of SSABs and CABs rotate on and off the Boards according to defined terms of office, thereby routinely opening the Boards' ranks to new members, many of whom are new to the issues. In addition, members of the public who have access to public comment periods at each Board meeting run up against the same daunting menu of obscure acronyms, scientific terms and notations, and an historical trail which is not always evident except to those involved with the issues over many years. How does a facilitator effectively guide such a group of citizens, each of whom arrives to

  20. An Innovative Approach to Pharmacy Law Education Utilizing a Mock Board of Pharmacy Meeting

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    D. Todd Bess

    2016-03-01

    Full Text Available A thorough understanding of pharmacy law by students is important in the molding of future pharmacy practitioners, but a standardized template for the best way to educate students in this area has not been created. A mock Board of Pharmacy meeting was designed and incorporated into the Pharmacy Law course at the University of Tennessee College of Pharmacy. Students acted as Board of Pharmacy members and utilized technology to decide outcomes of cases and requests addressed in a typical 2 day Tennessee Board of Pharmacy meeting. The actual responses to those cases, as well as similar cases and requests addressed over a 5 year period, were revealed to students after they made motions on mock scenarios. The mock Board of Pharmacy meeting engages the students in a way that lectures alone often fail to achieve with some initial evidence of successful student learning. Utilizing this teaching format as a law education tool challenges the status quo of pharmacy education and may serve as an impetus and catalyst for future innovations.

  1. Behavioral Economics and Physician Board Meetings: Opportunity Cost, Regret, and Their Mitigation in Orthopaedic Surgery.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Sinicrope, Brent J; Roberts, Craig S; Sussman, Lyle

    2018-01-01

    Health care is a business. Health care providers must become familiar with terms such as opportunity costs, the potential loss or gain when one choice is made in lieu of another. The purpose of this study was to calculate the opportunity cost of two orthopaedic surgery society board meetings and discuss these in the context of behavioral economics and regret. A literature search was conducted to determine an orthopaedic surgeon's average yearly salary, hours worked per week, and weeks worked per year. The details of two orthopaedic surgery professional society meetings that one senior author (CSR) attended were used to calculate opportunity cost. Although the true benefits are multifactorial and difficult to objectively quantify, awareness of the cost-benefit ratio can help guide time and resource management to maximize the return on investment while minimizing buyer's remorse and perhaps influence the media by which medical meetings are held in the future.

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    2002-01-01

    Full text: 1. By Rule 23 (d) of the Provisional Rules of Procedure of the Board of Governors:' No Governor may address the Board without having previously obtained the permission of the presiding officer. The presiding officer shall call upon speakers in the order in which they signify their desire to speak. The presiding officer may call a speaker to order if his remarks are not relevant to the subject under discussion.' The following procedures are applied generally concerning the implementation of Rule 23. 2. Governors or other members of delegations who wish to speak on an item notify the Secretary of the Board of their intention to speak. A Secretariat staff member will also be present on the podium in the Boardroom each day from 9:30 a.m. until the Board meeting commences, to receive requests from delegations to be added to the list of speakers. After the meeting commences delegates wishing to speak should raise their flag to be recognized by the Secretary of the Board. The names of delegations are inscribed on a single list of speakers, maintained by the Secretary of the Board, in the order in which they have signified their wish to speak. e. It may be noted that, in the course of debate on a particular item, delegations may signify an intention to speak more than once, including speaking in response to issues raised by other delegations during the debate. When two or more delegations simultaneously indicate from the floor an intention to speak, their names are inscribed in the order in which they are brought to the attention of the Secretary. 4. The established practice is to first call on delegations wishing to speak on behalf of regional groups on any specific item, followed by individual delegations, in the order in which their names are inscribed on the list of speakers. 5. Member States will appreciate that these guidelines cannot cover all contingencies and that special cases may arise from time to time. The Chairman will exercise flexibility where

    The AMES (Ageing Materials European Strategy) European network started its activity in 1993 with the aim of studying ageing mechanisms and remedial procedures for structural materials used for nuclear reactor components. Operated by JRC-IE, it has been supporting the co-ordination of the project cluster throughout the 4th and 5th EURATOM Framework Programs, carrying out projects on with plant life management implications. Among them we can list the development of non-destructive techniques applied to thermal ageing and neutron embrittlement monitoring (AMES-NDT and GRETE), improved surveillance for VVER 440 reactors (COBRA), dosimetry (AMESDOSIMETRY, MADAM and REDOS), chemical composition effects on neutron embrittlement (PISA) and advanced fracture mechanics for integrity assessment (FRAME). Main frame of the network in the 5th Framework Programme is the ATHENA project, which is aimed at summarizing the obtained achievements and edit guidelines on important issues like the Master Curve, Effect of chemical composition on embrittlement rate in RPV steels, Re-embrittlement models validation after VVER-440 annealing and open issues in embrittlement of VVER type reactors. In the 6th EURATOM Framework Programme started in 2003 the network will be part of a broader initiative on PLIM including in a more integrated way NESC, ENIQ, NET and AMALIA networks. This paper shows an overview of the concluded projects, achievements of the running ones and open issues tackled in the 6th EURATOM FWP and a summary of the plans for a new broader network on NPP Plant Life management (SAFELIFE).

    CERN Document Server

    Thió-Henestrosa, Santiago

    2016-01-01

    The authoritative contributions gathered in this volume reflect the state of the art in compositional data analysis (CoDa). The respective chapters cover all aspects of CoDa, ranging from mathematical theory, statistical methods and techniques to its broad range of applications in geochemistry, the life sciences and other disciplines. The selected and peer-reviewed papers were originally presented at the 6th International Workshop on Compositional Data Analysis, CoDaWork 2015, held in L’Escala (Girona), Spain. Compositional data is defined as vectors of positive components and constant sum, and, more generally, all those vectors representing parts of a whole which only carry relative information. Examples of compositional data can be found in many different fields such as geology, chemistry, economics, medicine, ecology and sociology. As most of the classical statistical techniques are incoherent on compositions, in the 1980s John Aitchison proposed the log-ratio approach to CoDa. This became the foundation...

  8. Introduction: The 6th special issue of Mars Polar Science

    Sori, Michael M.; Brown, Adrian J.

    2018-07-01

    Polar science at Mars has the ability to elucidate outstanding problems in the planet's history. The long-lived, kilometers-thick deposits at both poles hold a climate record that is still being steadily deciphered (e.g., Becerra et al., 2017), seasonal volatiles are important drivers of geomorphological change (e.g., Pilorget and Forget, 2015), and there is a growing recognition that water ice at lower latitudes is an important piece of the story in understanding polar processes (e.g., Bramson et al., 2015). Additionally, the icy volatiles trapped in the mid-latitudes will be an important resource for future human explorers (e.g., Viola et al., 2015). One task of this generation of Martian polar explorers is to understand the evolution of water as it cycles through the polar and mid-latitudes on geologic timescales in anticipation of its eventual utilization by the next generation of human and robotic explorers. To address these and other topics, the 6th International Mars Polar Science Conference was held in September 2016 in Reykjavik, Iceland (Smith et al., 2018). This special issue represents 16 papers presented at that conference.

    1987-01-01

    The past several years have seen the creation and extension of a very conclusive theory of statistics and probability. Many of the research workers who have been concerned with both probability and statistics felt the need for meetings that provide an opportunity for personal con­ tacts among scholars whose fields of specialization cover broad spectra in bothstatistics and probability: to discuss major open problems and new solutions, and to provide encouragement for further research through the lectures of carefully selected scholars, moreover to introduce to younger colleagues the latest research techniques and thus to stimulate their interest in research. To meet these goals, the series of Pannonian Symposia on Mathematical Statistics was organized, beginning in the year 1979: the first, second and fourth one in Bad Tatzmannsdorf, Burgenland, Austria, the third and fifth in Visegrad, Hungary. The Sixth Pannonian Symposium was held in Bad Tatzmannsdorf again, in the time between 14 and 20 September...

    Carasevici, Eugen

    2011-10-01

    The Romanian Association of Medical Laboratories (RAML) conferences have acquired a reputation for standing out as the most prominent and efficient meetings in the national community of laboratory medicine, being a landmark of the development in this field in Romania and an active affiliation to international forums. This year, the conference setting was Piatra Neamt, in the northeast part of Romania, which produced a friendly and stimulating professional environment. As in previous years, leading experts in the fields of laboratory medicine attended the event. This year, we enjoyed the opportunity to have such distinguished guests as the members of the executive board of International Federation of Clinical Chemistry and Laboratory Medicine (IFCC); Graham Beastall, IFCC President; Päivi Hannele Laitinen, IFCC secretary; and Grazyna Sypniewska, IFCC Communication and Publication Division, and editor of the electronic journal of the IFCC. As usual, the conference program included all aspects of clinical laboratory activity, with a special focus on technology development, instrumentation and laboratory management. Fully aware of the fact that the complexity and depth of laboratory practice have undergone an impressive and rapid evolution, the specific goals of the event were to increase knowledge in the fundamentals of new molecular investigation, areas which show the tendency to become routine in our daily activity. In addition, laboratory management and the place of medical laboratories in the process of translational medicine were subjects of focus. The 6th Conference of the Romanian Association of Medical Laboratories was held from Wednesday 1st to Saturday 4th of June 2011. A total of 273 participants from all local branches of the Association attended. The scientific program included seven plenary sessions where 22 lectures and 18 short communications were delivered, and three poster sessions with 44 poster presentations. Session topics covered issues of

    Full Text Available The 6th year of the MEFANET conference was held in Brno, Czech Republic, from Tuesday 27th to Wednesday 28th November 2012. This conference provides a regular opportunity for teachers and students from medical faculties from all over the Czech Republic and Slovakia to meet experts in health care informatics and providers of electronical support in the education. Apart from methodical and educational aspects of e-learning at medical faculties in general, this year’s conference has again dealt with the impact of this phenomenon on a specific medical specialty: a thematically focused symposium addressed the fields of orthopaedics, rheumatology and physiotherapy.

    The 6th Annual Bladder Cancer Think Tank brought together a multidisciplinary group of clinicians, researchers, and representatives from the National Cancer Institute and Industry in an effort to advance bladder cancer research efforts. This year's meeting comprised panel discussions and research involving 5 separate working groups, including the Survivorship, Clinical Trials, Standardization of Care, Data Mining, and Translational Science working groups. In this manuscript, the accomplishments and objectives of the working groups are summarized. Notable efforts include: (1) the development of a survivorship care plan for early and late-stage bladder cancer; (2) the development of consensus criteria for eligibility and endpoints for bladder cancer clinical trials; (3) an improved understanding of current practice patterns regarding the use of perioperative chemotherapy in an effort to standardize care; (4) creation of a comprehensive handbook to assist researchers with developing bladder cancer databases; and (5) identification of response to therapy of high-grade non muscle invasive disease through a collaborative exchange of expertise and resources.

  4. 6th International Accounting Congress of Barcelona (1929 organised by the Association of Accountants of Catalonia

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Josepa Alemany

    2017-01-01

    Full Text Available Purpose: the work presented is a descriptive, contextual and detailed analysis of the activity, and the conclusions developed in the first international accounting conference held in Barcelona. The 6th International Conference on Accounting which took place in Barcelona coinciding with the International Exhibition of 1929, was organised by the Association Internationale de Comptabilité of Brussels. This association proposed holding regular meetings to discuss and study technical accounting and economic issues related to that time. Approach: the originality of the work lies in being an analytical description of the original documents prepared by the Association of Accountants of Catalonia about the conference. Findings/Originality: this study allows redoing assumptions made in previous works, because the documents before this work were contradictory regarding dates, facts and some of the content covered. Limitations: the biggest limitation of the work comes from the lack of written documentation existing on this conference. Value: the present study continues the research on topics of history of accounting in Catalonia. It is expected to complement this work by a deeper analysis of the contents and the topics covered in the papers presented at the conference, and by linking them with the theoretical accounting lines existing at that time.

    2015-01-01

    Introduction: Schwannomas of the 6th nerve are extremely rare.Only 22 cases of intracranial schwannomas of the 6th cranial nerve pathologically confirmed have been reported.Case Presentation: Here, we report a case of a 14-year-old girl who presented with isolated progressive 6th nerve palsy.A cisternal type of schwannomawas found from neuro-imaging.Subtotal removal of the tumor was performed by a routine left subtemporal craniotomy with an petrosectomy.The attachment to the 6th nerve was found.After surgery, the patient's 6th nerve palsy remained.Histological images revealed a cellular schwannoma.Then the classification, clinical presentation, diagnosis, operation, stereotactic radiosurgery are reviewed.Conclusions: The location and the attachment to the 6th nerve is the key for diagnosis.Most cases are treated surgically.It looks like it is not easy to completely remove for CA type because of invasion of the cavernous sinus or firm adherence to the nerves.The 6th nerve function seldom completely recovered postoperatively.The direction of further research is to improve the diagnosis and therapy to have better nerve recovery.

    on quasicrystals (Eiji Abe), complex metal alloys (Alessandra Beni) and incommensurately modulated structures (Gervais Chapuis). While these were mainly aimed at younger researchers in the field, the lectures were very well attended and appreciated by the participants. The main programme ran from Monday morning until Friday lunchtime. It comprised 13 invited and 40 contributed plenary talks, and more than 40 posters, which were presented at two afternoon/evening poster sessions. The topics covered in the programme range from mathematical foundations, mathematical models, new materials, sample preparation, structure determination, physical properties and surface properties to industrial applications. Every presenter was invited to submit an article for this proceedings volume, and the 36 peer-reviewed papers in this volume present a cross-section of the range of presentations at the conference. They have been arranged into four categories, (i) quasicrystals, (ii) modulated structures, (iii) mathematical and theoretical aspects of aperiodic order, and (iv) approximants and complex phases. Prizes for best student presentations were awarded to Heinrich Orsini-Rosenberg (ETH Zurich) for his poster Tailor-made sevenfold approximants: ab-initio investigations on formation and stability and to Holger Euchner (Universität Stuttgart) for his contributed talk on Lattice dynamics in complex metallic alloys - vibrational properties of Zn11Mg2. In addition to a cash prize, Heinrich Orsini-Rosenberg received an icosahedral teapot, which was manufactured and donated by David Warrington, and Holger Euchner received a book prize. The meeting started with a welcome reception in the University's recently refurbished Victoria Gallery and Museum. A public lecture Simple sets of shapes that tile the plane but cannot ever repeat by Professor Sir Roger Penrose FRS attracted a wide audience and gave a fascinating insight into the discovery of the Penrose tiling, which is still the paradigm

    During the meeting, the Board also approved a document setting out its position on the CERN debt to the Pension Fund, which would be submitted to the Finance Committee and Council in June. It underlined that the reimbursement of the debt would be advantageous for the Fund as well as for the Laboratory and that it would reduce the Fund's dependence on the employer, in line with international accounting practices. The second of the two meetings was essentially devoted to examining the actuary's report on the Fund's position with respect to its actuarial commitments as at 1st January 2006. The report, the first of its kind, follows the Board's decision to commission actuarial studies to check the Fund's position in open fund terms between three-yearly actuarial reviews. Based on the Fund's position as at the end of 2005 and taking account of the Council's decisions in December 2005, it reveals a net improvement in the Fund's long-term (30-year) financial balance. However, the actuary states in the conclusions t...

    The 6th annual meeting to address key issues in positron emission tomography (PET)/magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) was held again in Tübingen, Germany, from March 27 to 29, 2017. Over three days of invited plenary lectures, round table discussions and dialogue board deliberations, participants critically assessed the current state of PET/MRI, both clinically and as a research tool, and attempted to chart future directions. The meeting addressed the use of PET/MRI and workflows in oncology, neurosciences, infection, inflammation and chronic pain syndromes, as well as deeper discussions about how best to characterise the tumour microenvironment, optimise the complementary information available from PET and MRI, and how advanced data mining and bioinformatics, as well as information from liquid biomarkers (circulating tumour cells and nucleic acids) and pathology, can be integrated to give a more complete characterisation of disease phenotype. Some issues that have dominated previous meetings, such as the accuracy of MR-based attenuation correction (AC) of the PET scan, were finally put to rest as having been adequately addressed for the majority of clinical situations. Likewise, the ability to standardise PET systems for use in multicentre trials was confirmed, thus removing a perceived barrier to larger clinical imaging trials. The meeting openly questioned whether PET/MRI should, in all cases, be used as a whole-body imaging modality or whether in many circumstances it would best be employed to give an in-depth study of previously identified disease in a single organ or region. The meeting concluded that there is still much work to be done in the integration of data from different fields and in developing a common language for all stakeholders involved. In addition, the participants advocated joint training and education for individuals who engage in routine PET/MRI. It was agreed that PET/MRI can enhance our understanding of normal and disrupted biology, and we
