countries. It views educational institutions as a key producer of social cohesion by supplying the shared beliefs that generate shared cultural meanings. To most institutionalists, education (schools, colleges, universities, but also home schooling, religious, and informal education) stands out as one of only a handful of key social institutions next to the family, the economy, religion, science, and government. Higher education takes its place in this nexus of institutions, as it globally expands in size and grows in strategic importance. [less ▲]

Emerging technologies and shared standards have opened up new avenues for the curation and presentation of data in archives and published research. Among their many benefits, these developments have made collections across archives more accessible, and have vastly improved the visual experience for users. This paper focuses on the next step in applying technical development and standards to digital collections: improving discoverability and providing a visual product that is simultaneously informative and experiential. The cases presented here focus on new approaches in these areas, with an emphasis on the utilization of visual search and discovery across a research archive and the integration of data and image into an augmented reality (AR) experience, with discussion of how these approaches can improve the usability of visual material while broadening the user's experience from the purely visual into the realm of the immersive.

This contribution asks whether a new type of intergovernmentalism has emerged in financial services regulation and Banking Union. Since financial services are a key area of the single market, the chapter concludes by reflecting on whether the governance trends in the financial sector can be generalised to other areas of the single market. It is argued that the single market for financial services, which encompasses financial regulation and the plan for Banking Union, provides an interesting mix of 'old' (community) method and 'new' intergovernmentalism.

This book reflects more than three decades of research on Cellular Automata (CA), and nearly a decade of work on the application of CA to model biological strings, which forms the foundation of 'A New Kind of Computational Biology' pioneered by the start-up, CARLBio. After a brief introduction on Cellular Automata (CA) theory and functional biology, it reports on the modeling of basic biological strings with CA, starting with the basic nucleotides leading to codon and anti-codon CA models. It derives a more involved CA model of DNA, RNA, the entire translation process for amino acid formation and the evolution of protein to its unique structure and function. In subsequent chapters the interaction of Proteins with other bio-molecules is also modeled. The only prior knowledge assumed necessary is an undergraduate knowledge of computer programming and biology. [less ▲]

The rules in EN1994-1-1 concerning the resistance of shear connections in composite beams with headed shear studs and steel sheeting relies on push-out tests, which have been performed between the late seventies and the early nineties of the last century. In the recent years, new geometries of metal decking have appeared on the market with the target to reduce the volume and weight of the concrete slab and to maximise the slab efficiency. The influence of these new geometries on the load bearing behaviour of shear connections has to be verified. Amongst others, the RFCS research project DISCCO investigated the shear stud resistance in combination with such novel steel decking. It turned out that, the current EN 1994-1-1 rules need to be modified especially for metal decking with narrow and deep deck ribs. Alternative analytical equations for the estimation of the shear resistance have been derived and statistically evaluated according to EN 1990. Details are presented in this contribution. [less ▲]

The use of direct laser sintering (DLS) has become more attractive recently since it offers a promising tool in fabricating complex components rapidly. Particularly, the technique is seen more powerful when it is combined with computer-aid design and computational optimization. In spite of knowledge increment in the above areas presently, design method for sophisticated structures towards DLS is still far from being fully exploited. Therefore, this paper was issued to investigate a novel methodology of design, developed by combining topology optimization and lattice-beam implementation, for a blend-solid-lattice frame of a motorcycle. From the obtained results, it was recognized that the as-built tubular hybrid structure demonstrated comparable values of first resonant frequency and mass with respected to those of the original. Additionally, it was found that stiffness of the generated structures depended strongly on locations where lattice was substituted. In particular, less stressed frame’s components were evidenced as appropriate regions for the substitution. The achieved results also revealed estimated buckling load factors, being circa 18 times higher than applied bumping loads acted on the tubular-lattice structure. Finally, equivalent stress predicted in static analyses confirmed all designs working safely in nominated conditions. Based on these achievements, it is believed that the new method worked quite acceptably in designing direct-laser-sintered motorcycle frame, and it is very promising to further develop the method as well as extend it into different complex direct-laser-sintered elements designed for future applications.

We propose here a natural, but substantive, extension of the MIC. Defined for two variables, MIC has a distinct advance for detecting potentially complex dependencies. Our extension provides a similar means for dependencies among three variables. This itself is an important step for practical applications. We show that by merging two concepts, the interaction information, which is a generalization of the mutual information to three variables, and the normalized information distance, which measures informational sharing between two variables, we can extend the fundamental idea of MIC. Our results also exhibit some attractive properties that should be useful for practical applications in data analysis. Finally, the conceptual and mathematical framework presented here can be used to generalize the idea of MIC to the multi-variable case. [less ▲]

We present a new modal access control logic, ACL + , to specify, reason about and enforce access control policies. The logic includes new modalities for permission, control, and ratification to overcome some limits of current access control logics. We present a Hilbert-style proof system for ACL +  and a sound and complete Kripke semantics for it. We exploit the Kripke semantics to define Seq-ACL + : a sound, complete and cut-free sequent calculus for ACL + , implying that ACL +  is at least semi-decidable. We point at a Prolog implementation of Seq-ACL +  and discuss possible extensions of ACL +  with axioms for subordination between principals. [less ▲]
