    The bi-annual Meeting of the Spanish Neutron Scattering Association, VI RSETN, took place in the magnificent world heritage ancient city of Segovia, Spain, from 24-27 June 2012, at the historical building ''Palacio de Mansilla''. It was the sixth in a series of successful scientific meetings, beginning in 2002 (San Sebastián), and followed by conferences in Puerto de la Cruz (Canary Islands, 2004), Jaca (Aragón, 2006), Sant Feliú de Guixols (Cataluña, 2008) and Gijón (Asturias, 2010). The conference covered a broad range of topics related to the use of neutron scattering techniques, from soft matter and biosciences to magnetism, condensed matter as well as advanced neutron instrumentation and applications. In addition to those topics, Spanish scientists working at neutron facilities reported recent upgrades of neutron instruments. The VI RSETN was organized by a group of research scientists belonging to different institutions in Madrid: CSIC, Universidad Complutense and Universidad Politécnica de Madrid, in cooperation with the Spanish Society for Neutron Techniques (SETN, 'Sociedad Española de Técnicas Neutrónicas'). The meeting attracted around 90 participants. The total number of oral presentations was 36, including plenary and invited talks, both from domestic and foreign speakers. In addition, the number of posters was around 20. The success of the VI RSETN was due to the efforts of many colleagues involved at all stages of the meeting. We would like to thank the scientific committee, the local organizing committee, the chairs of the conference sessions as well as all the reviewers who agreed generously to help with the process. We would also like to emphasize the excellent scientific quality of all the presentations and posters, and we thank the support received from our sponsors (SETN, ICMM-CSIC, ESS-Bilbao, ILL, Carburos Metálicos), which was really important for the conference success.

    The fourth "Melanoma Bridge Meeting" took place in Naples, December 3-6th, 2014. The four topics discussed at this meeting were: Molecular and Immunological Advances, Combination Therapies, News in Immunotherapy, and Tumor Microenvironment and Biomarkers. Until recently systemic therapy for metastatic melanoma patients was ineffective, but recent advances in tumor biology and immunology have led to the development of new targeted and immunotherapeutic agents that prolong progression-free survival (PFS) and overall survival (OS). New therapies, such as mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) pathway inhibitors as well as other signaling pathway inhibitors, are being tested in patients with metastatic melanoma either as monotherapy or in combination, and all have yielded promising results. These include inhibitors of receptor tyrosine kinases (BRAF, MEK, and VEGFR), the phosphatidylinositol 3 kinase (PI3K) pathway [PI3K, AKT, mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR)], activators of apoptotic pathway, and the cell cycle inhibitors (CDK4/6). Various locoregional interventions including radiotherapy and surgery are still valid approaches in treatment of advanced melanoma that can be integrated with novel therapies. Intrinsic, adaptive and acquired resistance occur with targeted therapy such as BRAF inhibitors, where most responses are short-lived. Given that the reactivation of the MAPK pathway through several distinct mechanisms is responsible for the majority of acquired resistance, it is logical to combine BRAF inhibitors with inhibitors of targets downstream in the MAPK pathway. For example, combination of BRAF/MEK inhibitors (e.g., dabrafenib/trametinib) have been demonstrated to improve survival compared to monotherapy. Application of novel technologies such sequencing have proven useful as a tool for identification of MAPK pathway-alternative resistance mechanism and designing other combinatorial therapies such as those between BRAF and AKT inhibitors.

    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

    2011-04-11

    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

  11. Transforming hospital board meetings: guidelines for comprehensive change.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Gautam, Kanak

    2005-01-01

    Does the following remind you of a hospital board meeting you attended recently? The meeting starts late, the PowerPoint presentation on hospital operations is too detailed to understand, 20 minutes are spent discussing parking, one or two trustees do all the talking, others check their PDAs or scribble on the agenda, and you try to keep your mouth shut while yawning. Hospital board meetings are often described as ritualized, unfocused, rambling, mindless, and inconclusive. Experts agree that board meetings in many hospitals are dysfunctional and need restructuring (Knecht 2001; Perrine 2003; Orlikoff and Totten 2002). Recently, St. Joseph Hospital in Orange, California, employed consultants and invested much effort in making its board meetings productive (Perrine). More such endeavors are needed for better hospital governance. In the last 5 years, several books and articles have focused on reforming board meetings. In this article I draw on them to discuss key problems of board meetings and how to make the meetings more effective.

    2002-01-01

    Death of a Former CERN Director-General The Director-General informed the Management Board that Victor Weisskopf, Director-General of CERN from 1961-1965, had died in New York on Sunday, 21 April at the age of 93. Fiftieth Anniversary of the Provisional Establishment of CERN The Director-General observed that 2002 marked the fiftieth anniversary of the 1952 agreement establishing a provisional European Council for Nuclear Research (CERN), which had been signed at the second session of an Inter-Governmental Meeting held in Geneva on 15 February that year. The 'provisional CERN' had been dissolved on 29 September 1954, when Member States had ratified the Convention formally establishing the European Organization for Nuclear Research. Later in the year it would be appropriate to start to discuss plans for an event to mark CERN's official fiftieth anniversary in September 2004. Outcome of the Recent Meetings of the Resources Review Boards R. Cashmore, Director for Collider Programmes, briefly reported on the outc...

Informing them of an accident that had occurred during the testing of the first long LHC dipole as an illustration of problems encountered and successfully overcome, Dr Evans had explained that sparking in the 15-m dipole had resulted in significant external damage and an unprotected quench. After re-tuning, however, the magnet had been successfully re-powered to reach well above the nominal field at first quench, thus dem...

  7. 6th International Microbeam Workshop

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Dr Kevin M. Prise

    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.

    The Doyle/Straus Interaction Method is just now beginning to be used at corporate board meetings on the West Coast. The methodology, based on ten years of experimentation with problem-solving and decisionmaking groups of all kinds, seems to hold a host of benefits not only for meetings at board level but for committee meetings of all kinds. Their step-by-step analysis of the problems that are caused by people and space promises much for the corporations that want to move the directorate into the 20th Century or even the 21st!

    2001-01-01

    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...

    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...

  7. MANAGEMENT BOARD MEETING OF 13 JANUARY 2000

    CERN Multimedia

    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...

    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...

In that context, the Committee had examined a proposal on the indexation of the expenditure budget during the LHC construction period, expressing general support for the approach presented, as well as information on the use of LHC contingency. It had also taken note of the proposed arrangements for the loan from the European Investment Bank (EIB), recommending their approval by Council in December on the understanding that signature of the relevant agreement would be subject to approval of the long-term plan at the same Council session. In addition, the Finance Committee had recommended the Council to apply the 2003 cost-variation index, including the calculated salary adjustment index of 1.2%, an...

    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 ...

    Full Text Available Abstract The 6th Meeting of the Global Alliance to Eliminate Lymphatic Filariasis (GAELF6 was held 1-3 June, 2010 in Seoul, Korea, with 150 participants from 38 countries. The year 2010 marks the midpoint between the first GAELF meeting, in 2000, and the World Health Organization (WHO 2020 goal of global elimination of lymphatic filariasis (LF as a public health problem. The theme of the meeting, "Half-time in LF Elimination: Teaming Up with Neglected Tropical Diseases (NTDs," reflected significant integration of LF elimination programmes into a comprehensive initiative to control NTDs. Presentations on LF epidemiology, treatment, research, and programmes highlighted both accomplishments and remaining challenges. The WHO strategy to interrupt LF transmission is based on annual mass drug administration (MDA using two-drug combinations. After mapping the geographic distribution of LF, MDA is implemented for ≥ 5 years, followed by a period of post-MDA surveillance, and, ultimately, verification of LF elimination. Morbidity management further reduces disease burden. Of 81 countries considered LF-endemic in 2000, 52 (64.2% have begun MDA; 10 (12.3% others with low-level transmission are unlikely to require MDA. In 2008, ~695 million people were offered treatment (51.7% of the at-risk population; ~496 million participated. Approximately 22 million people have been protected from LF infection and disease, with savings of ~US $24.2 billion. Morbidity management programmes have been implemented in 27 (33.3% countries. Significant challenges to LF elimination remain. These include: initiating MDA in the remaining 19 countries that require it; achieving full geographic coverage in countries where MDA has started; finding alternative strategies to address the problem of Loa loa co-endemicity in Central Africa; developing strategies to treat urban populations; initiating and sustaining MDA in settings of armed conflict; developing refined guidelines and

    CERN Multimedia

    2000-01-01

    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...

    2003-01-01

    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...

    In the absence of the Director-General, the meeting was chaired by R. Cashmore, Deputy Director-General and Director for Collider Programmes. Status Report on Earned Value Management (EVM) J. Ferguson, the EVM Project Leader, informed the Management Board that EVM reporting had now entered a steady phase of operation, with few changes needing to be made to the underlying work-unit data. Since the baseline had been set on 1st September, all modifications were being logged and both budget holders and group coordinators were automatically informed of any resulting impact on cost or schedule. 1500 work units were currently active and being reported on. Work on the contract alignment tool was under way with a view to ensuring that all work units were linked with their milestones in the financial database, thus facilitating exploitation of the data by the Finance Division. The first EVM-based status report to the Finance Committee had been presented at the latter's September meeting, based on the data available as...

    2001-01-01

    The Management Board's meeting on 26 April was essentially devoted to discussion of the Organization's medium-term plan, to be set out in the document 'Scientific Activities of CERN and Budget Estimates for the Years 2002-2005' and presented to the Council and its committees for approval in June, after submission of a preliminary draft to the Scientific Policy Committee (SPC) at its meeting on 7 May. The Director-General reviewed the main changes with respect to last year's plan and indicated that the document would take into account a number of significant developments over the past twelve months, which had enabled the Management to build up a much clearer picture of the Laboratory's medium-term future. These included the final closure of LEP, the completion of the Five-Yearly Remuneration Review, the elaboration of a LHC final machine and detector commissioning schedule, and, more recently, the completion of the LHC Computing Review. The conclusions and recommendations of the latter review would be presente...

  16. 6th International Conference on Emerging Zoonoses.

    Kahn, R E; Morozov, I; Feldmann, H; Richt, J A

    2012-09-01

    The 6th International Conference on Emerging Zoonoses, held at Cancun, Mexico, 24-27 February 2011, offered 84 participants from 18 countries, a snapshot of current research in numerous zoonoses caused by viruses, bacteria or prions. Co-chaired by Professors Heinz Feldmann and Jürgen Richt, the conference explored 10 topics: (i) The ecology of emerging zoonotic diseases; (ii) The role of wildlife in emerging zoonoses; (iii) Cross-species transmission of zoonotic pathogens; (iv) Emerging and neglected influenza viruses; (v) Haemorrhagic fever viruses; (vi) Emerging bacterial diseases; (vii) Outbreak responses to zoonotic diseases; (viii) Food-borne zoonotic diseases; (ix) Prion diseases; and (x) Modelling and prediction of emergence of zoonoses. Human medicine, veterinary medicine and environmental challenges are viewed as a unity, which must be considered under the umbrella of 'One Health'. Several presentations attempted to integrate the insights gained from field data with mathematical models in the search for effective control measures of specific zoonoses. The overriding objective of the research presentations was to create, improve and use the tools essential to address the risk of contagions in a globalized society. In seeking to fulfil this objective, a three-step approach has often been applied: (i) use cultured cells, model and natural animal hosts and human clinical models to study infection; (ii) combine traditional histopathological and biochemical approaches with functional genomics, proteomics and computational biology; and (iii) obtain signatures of virulence and insights into mechanisms of host defense response, immune evasion and pathogenesis. This meeting review summarizes 39 of the conference presentations and mentions briefly the 16 articles in this Special Supplement, most of which were presented at the conference in earlier versions. The full affiliations of all presenters and many colleagues have been included to facilitate further inquiries

    2002-01-01

    'Morges III' Manpower Planning Review The Director-General announced that at the end of September he would be visiting each division in turn with a view to discussing their projected resources and requirements prior to the CERN-wide manpower planning workshop known as 'Morges III' on 28th and 29th October. 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...

    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...

    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 ...

  15. MANAGEMENT BOARD MEETING OF 30TH OCTOBER 2003

    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...

  16. 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...

    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...

    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...

    The management of colorectal cancer increasingly involves multidisciplinary tumor boards. In cases where these occur, the quality can be variable. Despite this, there are no uniform measures to evaluate them. The aim of this study was to evaluate the performance of colorectal cancer tumor boards, via real-time prospective observation. An observational tool, termed Colorectal Multidisciplinary Team Metric for Observation of Decision-Making (cMDT-MODe), was used to assess decision-making in 267 cases. The presentation of case history, radiological and pathological information, as well as contributions to decision making of the various team members were analyzed using descriptive statistics and t-tests. Interobserver agreement was assessed using intraclasscorrelation coefficients. Tumor board meetings lasted 76 min, were attended by approximately 16 specialists each, and reviewed an average of 24 cancer cases (3 min per case review). Regarding the quality of presented information to the team, case history information was rated the highest (mean 4.57), followed by radiological information (mean 4.22) and pathological information (mean 3.81). Regarding each team-member's contribution to discussion, surgeons were scored the highest (mean 4.81), followed by radiologists (mean 4.41) and meeting chairs (mean 4.13)--all team members except the board coordinators were scored highly. Overall scoring reliability was good (0.79). The cMDT-MODe instrument can be reliably used to prospectively assess decision making in the multidisciplinary management of colorectal patients. By systematically quantifying the quality of a colorectal cancer tumor board, we can identify areas for improving practice so as to optimize decision making for cancer care.

    2004-03-01

    Benign recurrent abducens (6th) nerve palsy is rare. We found 23 cases in children reported in the literature; however, many of these cases followed immunization or were associated with viral illness. Here we report two cases of recurrent abducens nerve palsy with no obvious etiology. The diagnosis should be considered in any child who experiences abducens nerve palsy in the absence of any underlying pathology or precipitating factors.

  8. [Advantages and weaknesses of the tumor board meeting in validating prophylactic mastectomy].

    Science.gov (United States)

    Bodin, Frédéric; Weber, Jean-Christophe

    2012-12-01

    The evolution of our health care system strengthens multidisciplinary collaboration in medical practice. Today, the tumor board meeting (TBM) has become mandatory for treatment decision-making in oncology. Experts recommend that such a multidisciplinary tool be extended to prophylactic mastectomy. We will discuss the relevance of this extension on the basis of a survey with female patients and health professionals confronted with prophylactic mastectomy. Health professionals find the TBM necessary because it allows more reasoned and consensual proposals to be made, reduces the burden of difficult decisions, and promotes a comprehensive view of those who receive care. However, this approach has also drawn criticism. Unlike medical consultation, which focuses on a patient's singularity, the TBM seems poorly suited to take into account psychosocial factors governing the decision-making process. It may be easier for a group to reach a complex decision, but it does not mean that the TBM allows for decisions to be adapted on a singular basis. Therefore, we suggest to modify the TBM so that it better suits the needs of patients susceptible to breast cancer. The referring physician, who knows the patient best, should guide the content of multidisciplinary deliberations and put the focus on individual criteria raised during medical consultations.

  16. 6th International Workshop on Compositional Data Analysis

    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...

    Igarashi, Harue

    2015-01-01

    Biomarker measurement and LC-MS analysis of large molecule pharmaceuticals (LM-MS) are becoming increasingly important in pharmaceutical development, although they are not included in the existing bioanalytical method validation guidelines in Japan. The 6th Japan Bioanalysis Forum symposium presented challenges regarding biomarkers and LM-MS, as well as the current circumstances for regulated bioanalysis, by inviting speakers from Japan, the USA, European Union and Asia-pacific. Japan Bioanalysis Forum discussion groups also presented their outcomes and openly discussed these with the attendees - over 200 dedicated individuals from industry, regulatory agencies and academia. The symposium successfully reinforced the idea that fit-for-purpose approaches are necessary, and that science should drive any judgments and actions throughout drug development.

  7. Fundamentals of Physics, 6th Edition Enhanced Problems Version

    Science.gov (United States)

    Halliday, David; Resnick, Robert; Walker, Jearl

    2002-04-01

    No other text on the market today can match the success of Halliday, Resnick and Walker's Fundamentals of Physics. This text continues to outperform the competition year after year, and the new edition will be no exception. Intended for Calculus-based Physics courses, the 6th edition of this extraordinary text is a major redesign of the best-selling 5th edition, which still maintains many of the elements that led to its enormous success. Jearl Walker adds his unique style to this edition with the addition of new problems designed to capture, and keep, students' attention. Nearly all changes are based on suggestions from instructors and students using the 5th edition, from reviewer comments, and from research done on the process of learning. The primary goal of this text is to provide students with a solid understanding of fundamental physics concepts, and to help them apply this conceptual understanding to quantitative problem solving. The principal goal of Halliday-Resnick-Walker is to provide instructors with a tool by which they can teach students how to effectively read scientific material and successfully reason through scientific questions. To sharpen this tool, the Enhanced Problems Version of the sixth edition of Fundamentals of Physics contains over 1000 new, high-quality problems that require thought and reasoning rather than simplistic plugging of data into formulas.

    2012-02-01

    The 6th EEIGM Conference on Advanced Materials Research (AMR 2011) was held at the European School of Materials Engineering (EEIGM) on the 7-8 November 2011 in Nancy, France. This biennial conference organized by the EEIGM is a wonderful opportunity for all scientists involved in the EEIGM programme, in the 'Erasmus Mundus' Advanced Materials Science and Engineering Master programme (AMASE) and the 'Erasmus Mundus' Doctoral Programme in Materials Science and Engineering (DocMASE), to present their research in the various fields of Materials Science and Engineering. This conference is also open to other universities who have strong links with the EEIGM and provides a forum for the exchange of ideas, co-operation and future orientations by means of regular presentations, posters and a round-table discussion. This edition of the conference included a round-table discussion on composite materials within the Interreg IVA project '+Composite'. Following the publication of the proceedings of AMR 2009 in Volume 5 of this journal, it is with great pleasure that we present this selection of articles to the readers of IOP Conference Series: Materials Science and Engineering. Once again it represents the interdisciplinary nature of Materials Science and Engineering, covering basic and applicative research on organic and composite materials, metallic materials and ceramics, and characterization methods. The editors are indebted to all the reviewers for reviewing the papers at very short notice. Special thanks are offered to the sponsors of the conference including EEIGM-Université de Lorraine, AMASE, DocMASE, Grand Nancy, Ville de Nancy, Region Lorraine, Fédération Jacques Villermaux, Conseil Général de Meurthe et Moselle, Casden and '+Composite'.

  7. 143rd and 144th meetings of the Governing Board of the Pension Fund

    CERN Multimedia

    2006-01-01

    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...

    2015-07-01

    The IL-17A producing T-helper-17 (Th17) cell population plays a major role in rheumatoid arthritis (RA) pathogenesis and has gained wide interest as treatment target. IL-17A expressing Th cells are characterized by the expression of the chemokine receptor CCR6 and the transcription factor RORC. In RA, CCR6+ Th cells were identified in peripheral blood, synovial fluid and inflamed synovial tissue. CCR6+ Th cells might drive the progression of an early inflammation towards a persistent arthritis. The CCR6+ Th cell population is heterogeneous and several subpopulations can be distinguished, including Th17, Th22, Th17.1 (also called non-classic Th1 cells), and unclassified or intermediate populations. Interestingly, some of these populations produce low levels of IL-17A but are still very pathogenic. Furthermore, the CCR6+ Th cells phenotype is unstable and plasticity exists between CCR6+ Th cells and T-regulatory (Treg) cells and within the CCR6+ Th cell subpopulations. In this review, characteristics of the different CCR6+ Th cell populations, their plasticity, and their potential impact on rheumatoid arthritis are discussed. Moreover, current approaches to target CCR6+ Th cells and future directions of research to find specific CCR6+ Th cell targets in the treatment of patients with RA and other CCR6+ Th cell mediated autoimmune diseases are highlighted.

  19. Is there a role for clinical practice guidelines in multidisciplinary tumor board meetings? A descriptive study of knowledge transfer between research and practice.

    The aim of this study was to characterize practice patterns and decision-making processes of healthcare providers attending weekly neuro-oncology tumor board meetings, and to assess their familiarity with clinical practice guidelines (CPGs) in neuro-oncology. Members of the Neuro-Oncology Tumor Team at two tertiary cancer centers completed a web-based questionnaire assessing characteristics of weekly tumor board meetings and perceptions of CPGs. Twenty-three (66%) tumor team members responded. Diagnostic imaging results and interpretation, medical, surgical, and/or radiation treatment planning, and pathology results and interpretation were the most commonly identified aspects of patient care discussed at tumor board meetings, and almost all respondents indicated that these meetings were "very beneficial" to their own practice. When deciding on a treatment plan, respondents rely most on the clinical expertise of colleagues, medical literature, personal experience, active clinical trial protocols, and published CPGs. Opinions of the local CPGs varied considerably, and while 56% of respondents supported regular discussion of them during meetings, only 32% indicated that they were routinely reviewed. Updating the literature more frequently, implementing a formal grading system for the evidence, and incorporating clinical care pathways were the most frequently cited methods to improve the CPGs. Tumor board meetings are beneficial to the treatment planning process for neuro-oncology patients.

    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...

    2004-01-01

    This volume presents an authoritative review of the physics of strongly and electroweakly interacting elementary particle matter in extreme conditions that prevailed in the very early Universe, and which are being recreated in high energy physics laboratories today. Exciting, high-quality experimental results from RHIC collider at Brookhaven, collected since summer 2000, suggest that strongly interacting quark-gluon plasma has indeed been produced. The study of these phenomena will form an important part of theoretical particle and nuclear physics for years to come. Based on the discussions of more than a hundred experts at the Strong and Electroweak Matter 2004 Meeting, this volume contains an up-to-date overview of present ideas on QCD matter: quark-gluon plasma in heavy ion collisions, phase structure, kinetics, thermalization and transport properties. Also discussed are topics related to the cosmology of the early Universe, dark matter, inflation and creation of particle-antiparticle asymmetries. Both an...
