We study a problem of relay selection in a two-hop amplify-and-forward (AF) enabled relaying network for facilitating simultaneous Wireless Transmission of Information and Energy (Wi-TIE) to a destination able to perform both information processing and energy harvesting concurrently. Considering the time switching (TS) and power splitting (PS) based Wi-TIE schemes, we formulate an optimization problem to maximize the overall user data rate while ensuring a minimum harvested power. In this context, we obtain suitable closed form solution and demonstrate through simulation results the Rate-Energy (R-E) trade-off in two different scenarios: (i) with only the relay assisted link, and (ii) with the direct link together with the relay assisted link.

Pest und Lepra gehören zu den schrecklichsten Krankheiten der Geschichte. Die Erfahrung mit diesen Seuchen hat sich tief ins kollektive Gedächtnis eingegraben und wirkt bis heute nach. Und das, obwohl beide Krankheiten schon lange aus Europa verschwunden sind. Die Lepra seit ca. 300 Jahren und die Pest seit dem Ende des 19. Jahrhunderts. Dennoch üben Pest und Lepra in unserer Gesellschaft bis heute eine starke Faszination von Schauer, Grusel und Schrecken aus. Gerne und häufig werden Pest- und Lepramotive deshalb in der Literatur verwendet, aber auch ungleich plakativer in Romanen, in Film und Fernsehen sowie auch in Computerspielen. Der Vortrag widmet sich den historischen Figurationen von Lepra und Pest, ihren historischen Wurzeln und Ausprägungen. Wie reagierten die Gesellschaften auf die Bedrohung durch die Seuchen? Mit welchen Methoden wurde versucht, die schicksalhaften und unerklärlichen Krankheitserfahrungen verständlich zu machen und zu kategorisieren? Welche Bilder und Metaphern lassen sich greifen? Eine besondere Rolle spielen dabei ästhetische Dimensionen von Krankheitsdarstellungen, wie an vielen Beispielen gezeigt wird. [less ▲]

Die Vorlesung widmet sich in erster Linie der politischen Geschichte des 16. bis 18. Jahrhunderts, in der das Herzogtum Luxemburg eine Provinz der habsburgischen Niederlande war. Mit der Abdankung Kaiser Karls V. war Luxemburg im Jahr 1556 Teil der Spanischen Niederlande geworden und geriet in den Mittelpunkt der Auseinandersetzungen mit Frankreich. Auch als die Provinz 1714 unter österreichische Herrschaft fiel, setzte sich der Konflikt mit Frankreich fort. Er prägte die Geschichte Luxemburgs bis zum Ende des Ancien Régime maßgeblich und konnte erst mit der endgütigen Festlegung der Grenzen zwischen beiden Staaten im Brüsseler Vertrag von 1779 beendet werden. Am Beispiel des sogenannten Pyrenäenfriedens von 1659 soll anhand ausgewählter Quellen der enge Bezug zwischen Politik und Kartographie aufgezeigt werden. Es wird verdeutlicht, wie schwierig sich die kartographische Umsetzung eines Friedensvertrages gestaltete, vor dem Hintergrund verschiedener politischer Zielsetzungen, einer komplexen Herrschaftsstruktur mit sich überlagernden Grenzen und unterschiedlichen Raumvorstellungen. Damit zusammenhängend wird der Prozess der frühneuzeitlichen Staatsbildung betrachtet, der seit dem späten 16. Jahrhundert einsetzte und bis zum Ende des 18. Jahrhunderts zu einer fortschreitenden Zentralisierung und einem Ausbau der Verwaltung führte. [less ▲]

Predicting failure in aircraft structures – simulating fracture across scales and times You could fly every day of your life in a commercial aircraft for twenty thousand years without suffering a fatal accident. This extraordinary level of safety is the product of decades of engineering and materials science research. Simultaneously, engineers have strived to produce lighter and stronger aircraft, with increased range and metals have thus been gradually replaced by lighter advanced composite materials which take up more than half of the structural weight of today's most advanced aircraft. Such progress has been largely enabled by modeling and simulation of materials and structures, which have revolutionized design by enabling engineers to investigate virtually various design strategies. This presentation will focus on the challenges which have been posed, are posed, and will be posed to such modeling and simulation tools in the strive to predict the durability of lighter, stronger, longer-ranging and more reliable aircraft.

Research suggests negative effects of unemployment and skill underutilization on subsequent labor market outcomes. Among others, signaling theory has been used to explain why recruiters may evaluate competence and commitment of some job applicants less favorably than others. However, various country-, firm-, occupation-, and job-specific context factors may moderate such scarring effects. For example, a high youth unemployment rate may be associated with more scarring of previous unemployment spells and these effects might be different for occupations with different skill requirements. In this contribution, we explore the moderating role of transaction costs, i.e., the direct and indirect costs of recruiting and training new employees for scarring due to previous unemployment and skill underutilization. Furthermore, we investigate the extent to which the perceived difficulty of recruiting moderates these effects. Using data from a recent large-scale factorial survey of recruiters in four European countries (N~=~2,000) and employing multilevel linear regression models, we found, overall, scarring due to skill underutilization to exceed scarring due to unemployment. Skill underutilization was especially penalized when recruiting for a particular position was considered easy. Indirect transaction costs, particularly anticipated time required for organizational socialization, were negatively associated with unemployment scarring, but positively with scarring due to skill underutilization. Unemployment spells only had a negative effect on hiring chances, for jobs where there were monetary expenses for introductory trainings. Our findings constitute new evidence on the heterogeneity of scarring effects on hiring chances. We further contribute to the literature by highlighting the role of transaction costs and labor market performance. [less ▲]

In numerous sectors and industries worldwide, there is a trend towards an intercompany and often international division of value creation and related work tasks. To overcome the challenges of complex cross-enterprise supply chain networks, innovative approaches to visualize, assess and enhance value streams are sought. The StreaM method, which is described in this paper, enables a comprehensive analysis, design and planning of cross-company product and information flows on different levels of value stream detail. At the same time, the entire methodology is based on a common understanding of key symbols, parameters and calculation procedures. In addition, the use of the developed StreaM method and the associated model in a case study proves its practical applicability in an industrial setting. In further validation projects, the transfer of the “Standardized cross-enterprise Value Stream Management Method” to other industry sectors is envisaged to continuously improve energy, trade or service processes.

In this CALIDIE Colloquium, I will present ‘Nexus Analysis’ an interdisciplinary approach I have been using in different projects over the years. I will show how this approach is particularly useful for doing research seeking to impact the situation one studies and often implies working in partnership with researchers and practitioners from different horizons. I will discuss two examples applying this framework. The first case study will concentrate on the study of reconversion of professionals to new lines of work. The second case study will investigate reflections towards making a multilingual Higher Education programme more inclusive. Both case study presentations will be an opportunity to reflect about the conditions under which case studies might be useful from a practical and a theoretical standpoint. In closing the presentation, I hope to engage the participants in a more interactive dialogue around issues linked with inter-disciplinarity and mixed-methods approaches, theorizing, and axiomatic stances regarding values in doing science [less ▲]

This paper argues for a hybrid approach to historical research that combines ’traditional’ with digital hermeneutical approaches in a new practice of doing history. As the digital turn alters and affects all parts of the historical research process, this is a pressing challenge and need for all historians, not just for those engaged in ‘big data’ projects. Indeed, hybridity is, and should be, the new normal. Yet while most historians are accustomed to deploying digital approaches in the information gathering stage of their research, they often refrain from ‘going digital’ in its processing and especially analysis stages. Describing a number of digital tools used in work done on the diaries of Anne frank, the paper critically analyses and demonstrates the added value of incorporating them in all stages of historical research. Digital approaches enhance the methodological repertoire furnished by ‘traditional’ close reading practices. Hybrid approaches thus expand our intellectual horizons and the analytical power we bring to bear upon our sources. [less ▲]

Due to the separation between the historical and legal fields which have examined the issue of WWII reparations, no generally accepted definition of their current status exists either in the historical, legal or political spheres. This lack of clarity has greatly contributed to this issue remaining unresolved until the present. In his talk, Spero Paravantes looks at the way the issue was used by the Big Three in their dealings with each other after WWII. In light of the Greek government’s continued pursuit of WWI and WWII debts it claims are owed by Germany, and the recent claims made by the Polish government, this talk summarizes the historical, legal and political scholarship on the issue and also comments on its effect on relations between members of the Eurozone and the way in which responses to the issue of WWII reparations, and indeed the legacy of the war itself, have brought political and cultural divisions within the Eurozone again to forefront.

The discrete Pompeiu problem is stemmed from an integral-geometric question on the plane. The problem is whether we can reconstruct a function if we know the average values of the function on every congruent copy of a given pattern. After introducing the theory of spectral analysis on discrete Abelian groups, I show some results for the discrete version of the problem. One of the arguments is connected to a coloring problem of the plane. One of them is a geometric construction and some others based on some geometric and combinatoric properties of the plane. I also mention some unsolved questions of the topic. My talk is based on a joint work with M. Laczkovich and Cs. Vincze. [less ▲]

One of the statements concerning music education which impresses me the most is the following of Werner Jank and Martin Stroh (W. Jank, W.M. Stroh, Aufbauender Musikunterricht – Königsweg oder Sackgasse, http://www.musik-for.uni-oldenburg.de/vortraege/afs2005_jankstrohtext.pdf): ‘Many people do not take the discipline of music quite seriously. Unfortunately, they are right many times. Ironically, despite our thematic oversupply as regards music, we deny the children and youths at school experiences of true learning success by demanding too little of them. ’It describes on a gloomy note the problems which music teachers face regarding music and its heritage. Considering the curricula all over Europe however, we find a surprising uniformity including singing, musicking, listening, moving to the music, musical creativity and knowledge about music. On the other hand, music cannot be compared to any other discipline. Music literacy must be acquired in music schools on a voluntary basis and complementary to formal education. Music can be learned informally in a lifelong process, for example in community ensembles. Additionally, the question has to be raised which kind of music should be learned. Musical heritage is a social construction and represented in a world of changing media; music is more and more consumed and less and less actively practiced or learned in schools. It is for this reason that music education lags behind the development and has a challenging position in the canon of school subjects. However, we should not forget that the UNESCO selected two 1) In 2011: Táncház method: a Hungarian model for the transmission of intangible cultural heritage and 2) In 2016: Safeguarding of the folk music heritage by the Kodály concept on the register of intangible cultural heritage of human kind. And as luck would have it, both deal with music education, and both have their origins in Hungary. Should this be understood as a hint of the responsible persons of the UNESCO to developers of school curricula not to underestimate or simply to ignore music education in the canon of school subjects? One of its problems is that it has to cover a wide range of contents. Music is not only the music of the today’s modern popular music or the music of the famous masters, but, from an ethnomusicological point of view, the music of our region, our nation, or continent or the music of others far from the globalised mainstream. One could say globalisation and musical heritage form two antipodes. But, as several interviews with my students reveal, globalisation, with the help of digitisation, can also enable a worldwide access to regional music traditions. Zoltán Kodály’s and Leo Kestenberg’s commitment to music education is today still relevant. In Germany, the system of music education is still building on the achievements of Leo Kestenberg. Zoltan Kodály’s concept, based on a national / regional tradition, has reached a global standing. More as for others, his legacy deals with Music, Music Education and Musical Heritage. [less ▲]

We investigate the class of binary associative and quasitrivial operations on a given finite set. Here quasitriviality (also known as conserva-tiveness) means that the operation always outputs one of its input values. We also examine the special situations where the operations are commutative and nondecreasing. In the latter case, these operations reduce to discrete uninorms, which are discrete fuzzy connectives that play an important role in fuzzy logic. As we will see nondecreasing, associative and quasitrivial operations are chara-cterized in terms of total and weak orderings through the so-called single-peakedness property introduced in social choice theory by Duncan Black. This will enable visual interpretaions of the above mentioned algebraic properties. Motivated by these results, we will also address a number of counting issues: we enumerate all binary associative and quasitrivial operations on a given finite set as well as of those operations that are commutative, are nondecreasing, have neutral and/or annihilator elements. As we will see, these considerations lead to several, previously unknown, integer sequences. [less ▲]

Previous language attitude models assign a privileged status to language behavior as important factor that influence speaker evaluations. Moreover, language is framed by extra-linguistic cues (e.g., speaker’s social group membership) that may affect evaluative outcomes (e.g., Myers-Scotton, 2006). In previous research, a conceptual overlap exist between the evaluations of languages, nationality groups, and individual speakers. Consequently, the distinction between language and nationality attitudes has not been addressed. Moreover, dual-process theories argue that people hold two types of attitudes towards the same object, an explicit and an implicit attitude (e.g., Wilson, Lindsey, & Schooler, 2000). Thus, we examined whether language and nationality attitudes affect speaker evaluations, both on an explicit and implicit level. Explicit assessments were examined with questionnaires and implicit assessments were measured with audio Implicit Association Tests and an affective priming task. Our study findings (N = 79) in Luxembourg, a linguistically diverse country with three official languages, revealed that implicit nationality attitudes significantly predicted implicit speaker evaluations such that a stronger implicit preference for the Luxembourgish national group was associated with an increase in the preference for speakers of the Luxembourgish national group. This implicit in-group favoritism is discussed in the light of its implications for future research. [less ▲]

Die internationale Ausrichtung von Städten wirkt sich vielfach als Problem für Wohnungsmärkte aus. Die steigende Nachfrage führt zu Angebotsverknappungen und direkten wie indirekten Folgeeffekten im Markt insgesamt. Auf diese Weise entwickelt sich das Wohnungswesen zunehmend kritisch. Der Beitrag diskutiert dieses Problem am empirischen Beispiel Luxemburgs, einem stark internationalisierten Kleinstaat und bedeutenden Finanz- und EU-Standort. In Luxemburg gilt der Erwerb von Wohneigentum zwecks Wertsteigerung nach wie vor als Credo einer stark liberalistisch geprägten, konservativen Wohnungsbaupolitik. Zugleich stellt dies für viele Luxemburger als auch für die stetig wachsende Anzahl der im Großherzogtum ansässigen Ausländer die Grundlage für lukrative Vermögensanlagen dar. Seit der globalen Finanz- und Wirtschaftskrise steht die Anwerbung ausländischer Investoren zunehmend auf der wirtschaftspolitischen Agenda. Die ökonomische Stabilität des Landes und die relative Sicherheit von Immobilieninvestitionen fördern diese Entwicklung. Öffentlicher Wohnungsbau ist nach wie vor eine Randerscheinung. Die einzige Antwort, die in dieser Situation zu einem Konsens führt, sind Baulückenprogramme, verdichtetes Wohnen und urbane Großprojekte. Diese profitorientierte Wirtschaftsentwicklung ist im europäischen Kontext nicht einzigartig. Sie führte jedoch in diesem spezifischen Fall in der Vergangenheit zu beispiellosen Folgen: Bezogen auf die geringe Größe des Landes und im Licht eines starken, primär migrationsbedingten Bevölkerungsanstiegs, wachsender Einkommensunterschiede und einem immer stärker werdenden Nachfrageüberhang, wird bezahlbarer Wohnraum zunehmend knapp. Dieser Trend zeichnet sich nicht nur im Ballungsgebiet der Hauptstadt ab, sondern indes auch in ländlich geprägten, peripheren Gebieten des Kleinstaats. Bisher vorherrschende Machtverhältnisse, Ideologien und Kulturen geraten immer mehr unter Druck. Spannungen zwischen Mehrheiten und Minderheiten, Eigentümern und Mietern werden immer deutlicher, aber deren Aushandlung spielt sich oftmals in einem Vakuum ab. Die Verschuldung der Haushalte steigt weiter an. Nach der globalen Finanzkrise haben sich jedoch einige bottom-up Wohnungsbauinitiativen gegründet. Sie tragen dazu bei, den Diskurs über die Wohnungsfrage öffentlich auszutragen und bieten somit die Chance für die Etablierung von alternativen Wohnmodellen. Die Aushandlungsprozesse um diese neuen Bewältigungsstrategien finden jedoch statt in einem Setting, in dem die Devise „der Markt wird es schon richten“ seit Jahren die Politik (beg)leitet. Ihre Implementation ist langwierig. Die Kombination von sozioökonomischen Rahmenbedingungen, starken Interessengruppen sowie informellen Arrangements hat zu institutionellen Lock-Ins geführt, die eine Hürde für die Etablierung von Alternativen darstellen.

Parmi les multiples notions ou perspectives à travers lesquelles les processus de recomposition des solidarités peuvent être appréhendées, celle de l’inclusion joue aujourd’hui (intensifié par CPDH, 2006) un rôle primordial, y compris dans les domaines du travail social. Selon Ebersold (2009), les discours sur l’inclusion tendent à reconfigurer la légitimité des institutions socio-éducatives et à réadapter leurs rôles et missions en faveur d’une société plus inclusive. Dans la perspective des droits de l'homme, l’inclusion est vue comme un outil ou un moyen approprié pour atteindre l’objectif de la création d’une société dite inclusive, où la non-discrimination, l’égalité des chances et la pleine et égale jouissance de tous les droits de l’homme et de toutes les libertés fondamentales par les personnes en situation de handicap vont de soi (Limbach-Reich, 2015; Gardeou, 2012). A côté du terme d’inclusion scolaire, le terme d’inclusion sociale n’était toutefois que d’un emploi rare dans le langage politique en Europe avant l’émergence de la Stratégie de Lisbonne (2000). Il a poursuivi sa progression triomphante dans le système économique du néolibéralisme et a été remplacé par celui d’inclusion active en insistant sur le principe «pas de droit sans devoir» (Euzéby, 2010). En travail social, la réception du discours sur l’inclusion et la participation sociale, en particulier dans le contexte du handicap, consiste souvent à déterminer les différences qui semblent exister entre intégration et inclusion (Plaisance, et al. 2007), mais n'aborde pas l'utilisation ambivalente de la terminologie et ne pose pas la question du pouvoir et du (manque de) solidarité (Becker, 2016). En ce qui concerne le Luxembourg, le discours de la CPDH entre de plus en plus en conflit avec une gouvernementalité (Foucault, 2004) basée sur le néolibéralisme, qui considère les personnes handicapées comme «capital humain» auquel il faut faire acquérir le habitus (Bourdieu, 1997) du «protean worker» (Lifton, 1993). Cette évolution tend à créer des inégalités dues aux mérites, qui sont considérées comme justes même en cas de personnes handicapées et en conséquences aliment l'exclusion sociale par le processus de gestion les difficultés comme problèmes individuelles à guérir par et en travail social (Hamzaoui, 2015). Dans la méritocratie néolibérale, l’intervention sociale est en plus en danger de devenir un organe de contrôle (cf. Staub-Bernasconi, 2007) sous le sceau de l’inclusion qui légitime l’exclusion des personnes perçues comme étant incapables de bénéficier d’une éducation «normale» et d’être compétitifs sur le marché du travail. L'objet de cette présentation est d’examiner les conséquences de la politique d’inclusion en faveur des personnes en situation de handicap. [less ▲]

In this overview talk, we will illustrate the arithmetic significance of the coefficients of modular forms, from classical examples to the modern point of view of Galois representations. From that on, one is naturally lead to questions on the distribution of the coefficients in various senses. We will briefly touch on some of them, report on recent theorems and state some open questions. When investigating arithmetical properties of coefficients through Galois representations, their ramification properties are an important object to study. One notices that forms of -so called- weight one play a special role that will be explained. The importance of Galois representations coming from modular forms is that one expects all Galois representations satisfying reasonable "geometric" assumption to arise in such a way. As a special case, we will explain the theorem of Khare and Wintenberger, formerly called Serre's modularity conjecture, and conjectural generalisations. Whereas Galois representations are usually very hard to calculate directly on a computer, modular forms are pretty simple to compute. We will briefly touch on this and what kind of information one can get. If time allows, we will also touch on an application to the so-called inverse Galois problem. [less ▲]

The number of foreigners living in Luxembourg is still rising and represents today about 48% of the inhabitants. This study focuses on the description and mapping of the place of residence for the different nationalities living in Luxembourg. It seeks to underline differences through indicators built from the 2011 census data. We focus on the territorial distribution of the different nationalities by taking into account the urban structure and distance to jobs. If differences according to nationalities in the residential behavior of households can be empirically identified they may raise issues of spatial equity and (un)equal accessibility to job market. We analyse whether the geographic location of different nationalities in Luxembourg is linked to urbanisation level, the distance to the “poles d´emploi” or general accessibility to jobs. [less ▲]

Aufgrund der sozioökonomischen und räumlichen Entwicklung des Großherzogtums ist der luxemburgische Wohnungsmarkt seit mehr als zwei Jahrzehnten vor allem durch ausgeprägte und dauerhafte Knappheiten und hohe Kauf- und Mietpreise gekennzeichnet. Etliche Städte und Metropolregionen in Europa zeigen ähnliche Tendenzen auf. Spezifisch für unseren Fall sind jedoch erstens die geringe Größe des Landes sowie zweitens die fortwährenden wirtschaftlichen und demografischen Dynamiken, sie sich zum Teil in sehr starken grenzüberschreitenden, internationalen und sogar globalen Verflechtungen ausdrücken. Die Relevanz der „Internationalisierung“ des Wohnens in (und um) Luxemburg in all ihren Facetten ist allerdings nicht nur aus politischer und soziokultureller Sicht gegeben. Wegen seiner Besonderheit war der Fall in der Vergangenheit auch immer wieder Gegenstand wissenschaftlicher Untersuchungen. Bis auf einige wenige Ausnahmen waren diese Studien meist quantitativ angelegt und beschränkten sich vor allem auf die durch die sozioökonomischen Entwicklungen verursachten räumlichen Effekte der Internationalisierung des Wohnens. So wurden zwischen seit Mitte der 2000er Jahre z.B. mehrere Studien über Grenzpendlerströme und deren Auswirkungen auf das Wirtschaftswachstum, die Mobilität und das Wohnen in Luxemburg durchgeführt. Auch das Ausmaß und die Beweggründe für den Abzug von im Großherzogtum lebenden luxemburgischen und ausländischen Bürgern in das grenznahe Ausland wurde im Detail erforscht. Der luxemburgische Immobilienmarkt ist durch eine sehr dynamische Entwicklung und einen hohen Grad an Internationalität gekennzeichnet ist. Unser Beitrag zielt hauptsächlich darauf ab, die bisher vorherrschende wissenschaftliche Debatte über die Frage der Internationalisierung des Luxemburger Wohnungsmarktes erneut zu öffnen und sie um den Aspekt der Governance zu erweitern. Auf diese Weise sollen einerseits der Begriff der „Internationalisierung“ mit seinen z.T. sehr unterschiedlichen Wirkungsweisen im Bereich des Wohnens in Luxemburg differenzierter ergründet und andererseits neue Forschungsansätze entwickelt werden. Unsere Aussagen beruhen im Wesentlichen auf der Auswertung von Dokumenten und Sekundärmaterial zum Thema sowie der aktiven Mitwirkung an relevanten Fachdiskussionen zum Thema Wohnen in Luxemburg.

Luxembourg’s steadily growing economy attracts many migrants from all over the globe. As a result, the country’s trilingualism is being replaced by a more complex multilingualism with a growing importance of English. The paper gives a quick overview of the historic evolution based on sociolinguistic surveys of 1984, 1997 and 2008, followed by an in-depth description of today’s situation based on two language related questions of the Luxembourgish census 2011: Which language do you know the best? Which languages do you speak on a regular basis at home, at school and at work? The census data tell how many people use English in different contexts and who these people are. The focus will be on the language situation at work. A correspondence analysis reveals strong correlations between languages and occupations reflecting a split of the labour market: English dominates in high skilled jobs in the private sector, whereas Portuguese is the main language in low skilled jobs in the private sector, and Luxembourgish is the main language in the public sector. French and German are used more evenly across all occupations and sectors. These results highlight the link between the use of languages and competing social positions. [less ▲]
