In this paper we provide an overview of the I-GEAR (incentives and gaming environments for automobile routing) project that is intended to reduce traffic congestion in Luxembourg through the use of persuasive gaming. In order to illustrate some of the issues involved we also present an outline concept of a live game in which we propose to encourage the workshop participants to take part. If a sufficient number of workshop participants take part, this real life game could even be used as a small scale study within the project. [less ▲]

The image recognotion and the classification of objects according to the images are more in focus of interests, especially in medicine. A mathematical procedure allows us, not only to evaluate the amount of data per se, but also ensures that each image is processed similarly. Here in this study, we propose the power of shape analysis, in conjunction with neural networks for reducing white noise instead of searching an optimal metric, to support the user in his evaluation of MRI of renal tumors. Therapy of renal tumors in childhood bases on therapy optimizing SIOP(Society of Pediatric Oncology and Hematology)-study protocols in Europe. The most frequent tumor is the nephroblastoma. Other tumor entities in the retroperitoneum are clear cell sarcoma, renal cell carcinoma and extrarenal tumors, especially neuroblastoma. Radiological diagnosis is produced with the help of cross sectional imaging methods (computertomography CT or Magnetic Resonance Images MRI). Our research is the first mathematical approach on MRI of retroperitoneal tumors (n=108). We use MRI in 3 planes and evaluate their potential to differentiate other types of tumor by Statistical Shape Analysis. Statistical shape Analysis is a methology for analyzing shapes in the presence of randomness. It allows to study two- or more dimensional objects, summarized according to key points called landmarks, with a possible correction of size and position of the object. To get the shape of an object without information about position and size, centralisation and standardisation procedures are used in some metric space. This approach provides an objective methodology for classification whereas even today in many applications the decision for classifying according to the appearance seems at most intuitive. We determine the key points or three dimensional landmarks of retroperitoneal tumors in childhood by using the edges of the platonic body (C60) and test the difference between the groups (nephroblastoma versus non-nephroblastoma).

Endometrial carcinoma (EC) is the most frequent among infiltrating tumors of the female genital tract, with myometrial invasion representing an increase in the rate of recurrences and a decrease in survival. We have previously described ETV5 transcription factor associated with myometrial infiltration in human ECs. In this work, we further investigated ETV5 orchestrating downstream effects to confer the tumor the invasive capabilities needed to disseminate in the early stages of EC dissemination. Molecular profiling evidenced ETV5 having a direct role on epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition (EMT). In particular, ETV5 modulated Zeb1 expression and E-Cadherin repression leading to a complete reorganization of cell-cell and cell-substrate contacts. ETV5-promoted EMT resulted in the acquisition of migratory and invasive capabilities in endometrial cell lines. Furthermore, we identified the lipoma-preferred partner protein as a regulatory partner of ETV5, acting as a sensor for extracellular signals promoting tumor invasion. All together, we propose ETV5-transcriptional regulation of the EMT process through a crosstalk with the tumor surrounding microenvironment, as a principal event initiating EC invasion. [less ▲]

A Completely Separating System (CSS) C on [n] is a collection of blocks of [n] such that for any pair of distinct points x,y ∈ [n], there exist blocks A,B ∈ C such that x ∈ A-B and y ∈ B-A. One possible generalization of CSSs are r-CSSs. Let T be a subset of 2[n], the power set of [n]. A point i ∈ [n] is called r-separable if for every r-subset S ⊆ [n]-i there exists a block T ∈ T with i ∈ T and with the property that S is disjoint from T. If every point i ∈ [n] is r-separable, then T is an r-CSS (or r-(n)CSS). Furthermore, if T is a collection of k-blocks, then T is an r-(n,k)CSS. In this paper we offer some general results, analyze especially the case r=2 with the additional condition that k ≥ 5, present a construction using Latin squares, and mention some open problems. © 2012 Elsevier B.V.

This work presents two UAS See and Avoid approaches using Fuzzy Control. We compare the performance of each controller when a Cross-Entropy method is applied to optimase the parameters for one of the controllers. Each controller receive information from an image processing frontend that detect and track targets in the environment. Visual information is then used under a visual servoing approach to perform autonomous avoidance. Experimental flight trials using a small quadrotor were performed to validate and compare the behaviour of both controllers. [less ▲]
