From the Hampster Dance, All your Base are belong to us and the Dancing Baby in the second half of the 1990s to Bernie’s mittens at the US presidential inauguration and the image macros of the Evergreen blocked in the Suez Canal, through Disaster Girl or Distracted Boyfriend to name but a few, memes and Internet phenomena have become in the last twenty years an important part of our digital cultures (Shifman, 2014). After presenting why historicising virality matters (which is the purpose of our Hivi research project supported by the Luxembourg National Research Fund and conducted at the University of Luxembourg, https://hivi.uni.lu), this talk will focus on the challenges related to sources. Historicising online virality requires to first acknowledge how difficult it is to build corpora and develop chronological views in the vast and heterogeneous amount of data lakes and sources available on the live web and in web archives. All these repositories preserve viral content in a very different manner, covering different frames and periods, while the actors who come into play have different size and motivations, from giant platforms (Twitter, YouTube - see Burgess and Green 2018, etc.) to small communities, through heritagisation platform (i.e. Know Your Meme - see Pettis, 2021) and web archives. Therefore, it is necessary to consider the many levels of politics, curation and agencies at stake when studying the history and heritagisation of memes and Internet phenomena and their impact. Finally, temporalities and scales are also challenging, and scalability is key for studying the spreadability of digital contents, notably in a long-term perspective. There is a constant need for balancing between several scales to study circulation and flow (Jenkins, 2009), processes, participation (Milner, 2018) and appropriation, while recontextualizing memes and Internet phenomena in their complex and changing environments (changes of platforms, of participation, of audience, of meaning...).

In political terms, European integration and multilateral cooperation enabled Luxembourg to become an equal partner in the decision-making processes and leadership of European organizations. In economic terms, these features gave the country the tools it needed to forge a development model that could underpin the creative growth of its social market economy, while preserving the majority of its vital interests—particularly the steel industry and the financial centre—over the long term. Focusing primarily on the 1970 Werner Report, which served as a blueprint for the European single currency - the euro - the presentation examines a key period in European integration history and one of the major European achievements of Luxembourg and of Pierre Werner (29 December 1913– 24 June 2002), former Prime Minister, Finance Minister and Foreign Minister of Luxembourg, who left his mark on the future of his country and is unanimously recognised as one of the architects of Economic and Monetary Union.

A group of principals collectively and sequentially screen an agent. The principals hold heterogeneous values from the relationship that may evolve over time. At each date, the principals use a collective decision rule to propose a contract to the agent. We unearth circumstances in which every non-dictatorial decision rule yields inefficiency in the form of excessive learning: relative to a single-principal benchmark, collective principals screen the agent too aggressively. They do so in order to reduce uncertainty about the agent’s preferences, and alleviate dynamic conflicts of interest between the principals that exist regardless of their static alignment. [less ▲]

This contribution discusses a formalism for data-driven modelling of advanced materials with a special interest in the large deformation response of three-dimensional specimens. The underlying hyperelastic deformation problem is formulated in the principal space using principal stretches and principal stresses. The associated constitutive relation is consequently using principal quantities and captured by the parameter-free representation using a deep neural network. The presentation investigates certain physics-motivated requirements imposed on the architecture of the artificial neural network such as symmetry and objectivity criteria. The training phase of the constitutive ANN operator employs a loss function which ensures the identified consistency conditions. The prediction phase exploits a constitutive blending approach to stabilise the numerical solution procedure in the presence of typically local stretch/stress extrema. The presented approach is implemented using FEniCS and builds on symbolic representation of the ANN operator based on the Unified Form Language (UFL). The neural network is constructed, trained, and tested using PyTorch. Numerical benchmarks demonstrate the ability of the presented formalism to describe non-trivial load-deformation trajectories of 3D test specimens. [less ▲]

As famous as the quotation by Lawrence Lessing “Code is law”, the sentence by David Clark at a meeting at the IETF in 1992 “We reject kings, presidents and voting, we believe in rough consensus and running code” became a “motto for Internet standardization” (Russell, 2006) that invites us to have a look at the past relationships and intertwinements between networks design and governance. From the 1970s topics related to distribution and openness have become key in networks infrastructures, while complementary issues related to asymmetries and multi-stakeholderism (Raymond and DeNardis 2015) have been emphasized in the 1990s and 2000s, and notably during the WSIS in Tunis and Geneva. Research related to Internet governance (Mueller and Badiei, 2020; Musiani, Schafer, 2021) has also brought to the table strong issues related to agencies, privacy, and many others that have strongly followed the development of networks and their uses as well as controversies related to net neutrality or information flows for example (DeNardis, 2020). This presentation will go through several historical case studies and rethink them through the lens of infrastructure design and governance, from Arpanet in the 1970s, XNS and then the OSI (Russell, 2014), to web archives (Schafer, Winters 2021) and research infrastructures today, through past designs and attempts, related to the Web and Xanadu, the Minitel (Schafer, Thierry, 2012; Mailland, Driscoll, 2017), platforms like Wuala (Musiani, 2022) and Wikipedia (Cardon and Levrel, 2009). This will allow us to explore some notions and approach related to closure, secret, incentives, empowerment, while finally moving from “governance” to “good governance” and its challenges. [less ▲]

Les phénomènes viraux et en particulier les gifs et les mèmes ont donné lieu à des études (par H. Jenkins, L. Shifman, R. Milner, D. Kaplan et N. Nova, J. Eppink, A. Wagener et bien d’autres) qui éclairent les phénomènes de circulation, participation, partage (cf. également les recherches de N. John) et transformation au sein des cultures numériques. Les phénomènes viraux sont bien sûr présents dès les débuts du Web et certains voient dans les émoticones ou la loi de Godwin leurs premières occurrences (J. McGrath). La fin des années 1990 marque par ailleurs le succès du Dancing Baby, de la Hampster Dance ou de All Your Base Are Belong To Us. Les réseaux socio-numériques ont accéléré ces circulations, par ailleurs transplateformes, tout en mettant au défi le chercheur qui souhaite appréhender et historiciser la viralité. C’est notamment l’ambition du projet HIVI (A history of Online Virality) à l’université du Luxembourg (2021-2024). Sans surprise un premier défi est celui des archives et de la constitution de corpus. La présentation les abordera autour de trois axes: tout d’abord le défi de la masse et de l’hétérogénéité des sources, de leur périmètre, mais aussi l’inégale préservation des phénomènes Internet, ainsi que la pluralité des espaces de patrimonialisation et modes de curation seront présentés; ensuite nous nous intéresserons plus particulièrement aux sources nativement numériques conservées dans les archives du Web, et leurs défis en termes de préservation, recherchabilité, contextualisation. Enfin des enjeux méthodologiques, notamment liés aux temporalités et spatialités seront soulevés, pour engager la discussion sur les apports mais aussi les limites des sources nativement numériques.

The Werner Committee's work was characterised by political and doctrinal differences between “economists” (the countries with weak currencies – France, Belgium and, to a certain extent, Italy) and “monetarists” (the countries with strong currencies – Germany and the Netherlands)– namely, those who saw monetary integration as a means of economic integration and those for whom it was the ultimate goal. The conflict was ultimately resolved by the adoption of a parallel approach between economic cooperation and monetary coordination in the Member States, a principle of equilibrium on the basis of which Pierre Werner was able to secure a consensus. This paper makes extensive use of Pierre Werner’s previously unpublished archives and a collection of original oral history accounts with key players of European monetary integration. An interdisciplinary approach, together with digital methodologies (network analysis and the TXM corpus analysis framework), will be used to explore the negotiations within the Werner Committee by examining the dynamics between group members, their emerging views on EMU, their political commitment to a European currency, the similarities and differences between their ideas, their personal networks, the influence of their respective countries, their theoretical and methodological input and their contribution to the political agreement.

Die Studiengänge an der Universität Luxemburg sind überwiegend mehrsprachig. Vor diesem Hintergrund sind die mehrsprachigen Kompetenzen unserer studentischen Hilfskräfte im Sprachenzentrum von zentraler Bedeutung. In diesem Zusammenhang werden den Studierenden Peer-Tutoring- und Tandemprogramme angeboten, um sie bei ihrem Integrationsprozess in unser Universitätssystem zu unterstützen. Wir haben im Rahmen eines gemeinsamen Kurses der sechs Sprachzentren der Grenzuniversitäten, der Studierende sprachlich und kulturell auf eine zukünftige Mobilität vorbereiten, ein Tandemmodul integriert, das diese Studierenden zur gegenseitigen Hilfe unter Gleichaltrigen anregen soll. Wenn sich Tandems ergeben sollten, schulen wir unsere studentischen Hilfskräfte darin, Gruppen bei der Durchführung von Tandem-Aktivitäten zu begleiten. Die Studierenden müssen sich auf drei bzw. vier Aktivitäten einigen, die sie gemeinsam durchführen. Um den Nutzen dieser Partnerschaft zwischen Studierenden und studentischen Hilfskräften zu maximieren, werden wir in dieser Mitteilung über die Entwicklung einer Vorgehensweise und eine Verstärkung der Begleitinstrumente nachdenken, die darauf abzielen, ihre "Tandem-Sitzungen" in Gruppen zu strukturieren.

Der historische Atlas der Stadt Luxemburg wurde im Unterschied zu bisher veröffentlichten Atlanten anderer Städte allein für eine Veröffentlichung im Internet konzipiert. Seit 2019 ist er im Internet auf der Seite luxatlas.lu zugänglich und wurde seither kontinuierlich ausgebaut, überarbeitet und verbessert, sowohl technisch als auch inhaltlich. Aktuell bietet sich Nutzern die Möglichkeit, eine Vielzahl historischer Altkarten und Luftbilder der Stadt Luxemburg aus dem Zeitraum zwischen 1560 und 2017 in beliebig wählbaren Zoomstufen zu betrachten und auf transparenten Ebenen passgenau übereinanderliegend miteinander zu vergleichen. Ergänzend lassen sich historische Fotos und Ansichten sowie erläuternde Texte zur Stadtgeschichte und zu ausgewählten Gebäuden oder anderen Infrastrukturelementen einblenden. Der Luxatlas dokumentiert historische Veränderungsprozesse diachron für Forschungszwecke. Dabei steht die reine Visualisierung von Forschungsergebnissen aber nicht im Vordergrund. Vielmehr dient der Atlas selbst als Instrument zur Gewinnung neuen Wissens. Erst durch die Überlagerung verschiedener kartographischer Zeitschichten und die Verknüpfung von historischen, architektonischen, demografischen, wirtschaftlichen und städtebaulichen Informationen wird die Verteilung bestimmter räumlicher Phänomene sichtbar und kann von Nutzern interpretiert und analysiert werden. Auf diese Weise wird die interaktive Karte zu einem zentralen Instrument des Wissenserwerbs. Um die Vorteile einer Webpublikation bestmöglich umzusetzen, basiert der Luxatlas auf Open-Source-Software. Dies ermöglicht die Entwicklung maßgeschneiderter WebGIS-Anwendungen für die spezifischen Anforderungen des Projektes. Der Vortag wird neben der Projektvorstellung auch die methodischen und quellenkritischen Herausforderungen beleuchten und den geplanten weiteren Ausbau zur Diskussion stellen. [less ▲]

Carbonopolis: Letz bring it down! is a prototype board game that stimulates awareness and encourages exchange on six climate change topics impacting Luxembourg: urban heat islands, extreme weather, quality of life, mobility, housing and the food system. Whilst playing, participants discover and discuss potential sustainable planning initiatives for carbon descent. Aimed at groups of multicultural players, the game was inspired by snakes and ladders and integrates three type of playing cards: (1) multiple-choice questions for knowledge testing (2) planning initiative cards for value-driven policy prioritisation and (3) crisis cards for critically reflecting on current policy impacts. The initial game design was conceived by two academics. Then in the spirit of co-design, as a sustainability action for all, and with the goal of building partnerships beyond the formal curriculum we integrated three Master student assistants and one doctoral student into the process, especially in the graphic design and game evaluation. During play sessions students assumed different roles: players, game leaders and game observers. The game provided an opportunity to raise awareness of local sustainability challenges and nurture future advocates. Additionally, the process provided an interactive and playful method for new co-productive curriculum development and the development of team-based relationships between staff and students. [less ▲]

In diesem Vortrag werden zunächst die Zusammenhänge zwischen Klima und Ernährungssystem aufgezeigt und mit alltagsrelevanten Beispielen illustriert. Hierbei wird sowohl die Ebene der Konsument_innen in den Blick genommen als auch die systemische Ebene von öffentlichen Einrichtungen, Labelvergebung und Nachhaltigkeitsbildung. Zudem wird die Rolle von mehr oder weniger kohärenten Agrar- und Ernährungspolitiken beleuchtet. Die anzustrebende Transition zu Ernährungssouveränität innerhalb planetarer Grenzen wird erläutert. Danach werden Lösungsvorschläge erarbeitet, wie ein solches nachhaltiges, sozial gerechtes und ethisches Ideal erreicht werden kann. Hierbei spielen partizipative Ansätze – wie etwa Ernährungsräte – eine grundlegende Rolle, da sie staatliches Handeln mit Marktinitiativen und Innovationen aus Zivilgesellschaft und Forschung kombinieren. Durch gemeinschaftliches Engagement können konkrete Projekte zur systemischen Ernährungswende initiiert und gelebte Ernährungsdemokratie umgesetzt werden. Damit sowohl Tofu-Burger wie Rindersteaks klima-, umwelt- und sozialverträglich sein können. [less ▲]

"The big data of the past" as much as the so called ego-docments like letters, photos and memories after the liberation allow to get to the bottom of the daily life of thousands of the Soviet teenagers, who lived directly at the plant in the barracks behind the barbed wire, were subjected to an enormous workload and had neither enough food nor free time.

The multitude of chemicals to which we are exposed is ever increasing, with over 110 million chemicals in the largest open chemical databases, over 350,000 in global use inventories, and over 70,000 estimated to be in household use alone. Detectable molecules in exposomics can be captured using non-target high resolution mass spectrometry (HRMS), but despite the size of the chemical space, scientists cannot yet identify most of the tens of thousands of features in each sample, leading to critical bottlenecks in identification and data interpretation. This talk will cover European and worldwide community initiatives and resources to help connect environmental expert knowledge and observations towards a better understanding of the exposome, including various open cheminformatics and computational mass spectrometry approaches such as the NORMAN Suspect List Exchange, MassBank, MetFrag and PubChemLite for Exposomics.

In this talk, which is based on joint work with Luca Notarnicola, I will present the Hidden Lattice Problem (HLP), which is the task of recovering a "small" lattice from the knowledge of only one or a few of its vectors. This problem can be traced back at least to the work on the Hidden Subset Sum Problem by Nguyen and Stern, who also came up with the "orthogonal lattice attack" for solving this kind of problem.

Initially scheduled for the end of March 2019, the withdrawal of the UK from the EU (Brexit) was postponed three times and only took effect on 31 January 2020, following a transitional period. The Withdrawal Agreement covers various issues including the protection of the rights of EU citizens in the UK and British citizens living in EU countries, post-Brexit financial commitments, and border questions on the island of Ireland. An agreement on the future relationship between the EU and the United Kingdom was approved on 27 April 2021 by the European Parliament. Brexit not only gave rise to political and institutional upheavals; it also had another long-term consequence, namely a polarisation and division of British society that goes beyond generational divisions, socio-professional contexts and political and ideological leanings. Whether for or against, the discussions about this divorce are as heated as ever and the arguments on both sides are becoming increasingly entrenched. [less ▲]

The Impact and Legacy of War Experiences in Luxembourg” researches the personal side of the history of Luxembourgish youth born between 1920 and 1927 who were enrolled into German services under the Nazi occupation of Luxembourg during World War II. The research focuses on personal testimonies and their individual war experience to uncover these men, women, and families’ individual experiences. Using a relational database to represent their war experiences, we face several challenges, such as a data structure that is too rigid and strict to “map” the fluid and unpredictable life patterns of our study subjects. We developed a data model where we treat different life stations (military unit, POW camp etc.) as equal data levels like our recruits (as persons). Each “life station” or event we treat as a “person” and create a separate “biography” to include all relevant data. Afterwards, we link the life stations or events with the actual person in the database. The aim of my talk will be the “translation” of lives, with its twists and turns into a static data set such as a relational database to map the individual war experiences of our study object.

Notre intervention entend s’intéresser au défi lancé, par Patrice Chéreau, à la représentation. L’intimité proprement corporelle, définitoire de son esthétique, s’avère, par définition, invisible et irreprésentable. Tel est le point focal des recherches de Valérie Nativel. Soutenue en 2012, la thèse de doctorat de cette dernière part de la décennie 1980, et plus spécifiquement de l’année 1983, point de bascule dans la carrière artistique de Patrice Chéreau. En effet, le choix de cet artiste d’inaugurer le Théâtre des Amandiers à Nanterre par Combat de nègre et de chiens de Bernard-Marie Koltès paraît hautement significatif. De facto, rencontrer un auteur contemporain, — créateur d’une dramaturgie subjective et capable de mettre en mots la complexité des relations entre les individus —, va, en miroir, permettre à Patrice Chéreau de proposer un dépouillement scénique par le biais d’un plateau nu, témoin d’un deuil du visible. Ce dispositif scénique bifrontal apparaît privilégié pour les corps actoriaux, pris dans un espace marginal et inhabitable, autrement dit, un no man’s land ou « non-lieu ». Ce parti pris produit instantanément un impact sur le spectateur lequel se retrouve ainsi intrus et voyeur. Nous verrons que le spectacle Phèdre de Jean Racine, donné en 2003 aux Ateliers Berthier, constitue un cas emblématique de la proximité érotique et de l’intimité corporelle des acteurs. Du secret des répétitions en huis-clos avec les comédiens aux représentations face à un public installé dans et aux prises avec un dispositif bifrontal induisant autant la proxémie que la distance, Patrice Chéreau s’évertuera à séduire.

In this paper, a novel theoretical framework is proposed to organize and integrate previous empirical findings on early development of analogical transfer. Transferring knowledge across situations is a pivotal skill in dynamically changing environments that humans inhabit and shape. This ability drives human problem solving and innovativeness, as it allows for generalizing knowledge acquired in familiar, past solutions to any unfamiliar, present situation. The ability to detect common functional features and disregard other, functionally irrelevant information begins to develop in the first year of life, and markedly improves in toddlerhood and the preschool years. Although the ability to transfer knowledge across situations has been repeatedly investigated in toddlers and preschoolers over the last decades, these investigations lacked a unifying framework, obscuring the developmental timing of flexible problem solving. In this paper, a unifying framework is proposed and discussed in relation to previous findings, gaps in current state of knowledge and implications for concrete educational interventions. This framework builds on a distinction between “simple” and “complex” transfers. Although all generalization tasks require prioritizing relevant information over irrelevant information, the irrelevant information may play two different roles in transferring knowledge, namely, a distracting or a misleading one. Distracting information was consistently irrelevant under similar past circumstances and remains irrelevant in the present. Misleading information was relevant under similar past circumstances but is now irrelevant and therefore competes with the truly relevant information. Previous research suggests that the ability to disregard misleading information is more difficult, draws differently on executive functions and most likely develops later than the ability to disregard distracting information. The current paper furthers current understanding of how early the abilities critical to human behavioural flexibility develop. In the era of individual engagement in politics and social media, the ability to disregard misleading information is perhaps more important than ever before. Furthermore, focusing on individual problem-solving flexibility, promoted in the current project, has implications for changes in assessment of child’s achievement and progress in the schooling system. Since accumulating information is somewhat prioritized over operating on such information, continuity between problem solving at the preschool level and critical thinking in adolescence may not be secured. There is also little space for assessment of individual, not standardized development. Shifting the current emphasis toward individual flexibility could, at least to some extent, hinder grouping children into performing below, on and above average and promote focusing on individual course of development, both in typically and atypically developing children.

This lecture contained the results concerning the effect of the professional development course in translanguaging pedagogy on preschool teachers, parents, and children in Luxembourg. The mixed-method design revealed positive effects based on the data from the teacher questionnaires, focus groups, and interviews with teachers, then parent questionnaires and interviews with parents, and tests in literacy and numeracy in school and home languages, and video observations with children. In this lecture I also presented the publications for parents (the book Sumak), for children (Mara's song with the CD), and the website for teachers on translanguaging activities (www.transla-program.org).

L'histoire architecturale du siège de la Banque Générale du Luxembourg (BGL), est intimement liée à l’histoire urbanistique de la ville de Luxembourg. Le choix du quartier, du boulevard ou de la rue dans lequel la Banque va s'implanter a toute sa signification et n’est pas dû au hasard. Les choix architecturaux, l’emplacement d’un siège deviennent-ils alors des éléments qui contribuent à façonner l'identité d'une banque ? Ou est-ce que les mutations urbaines et les évolutions du secteur bancaire influencent-elles le style de la construction ? Tout au long de son histoire, depuis ses débuts en 1919 jusqu’à nos jours, les bâtiments du siège de la BGL situés dans le centre-ville et au Kirchberg ont connu plusieurs vies pour rester compétitifs dans un monde bancaire qui se crée et se cherche. Concomitant à l’émergence de la place financière dans le paysage urbain luxembourgeois, la Banque a dû aussi continuellement se réinventer. À travers un siècle riche en événements, le narratif que les dirigeants de la Banque ont souhaité véhiculer à travers la dimension architecturale du siège a donc aussi évolué. Il fallait bien évidemment se démarquer de la concurrence, des autres institutions financières établies dans des bâtisses plus ou moins prestigieuses. Les multiples mutations architecturales du siège, qu’il s’agisse d’agrandissements, de transformations ou de reconstructions, en témoignent. [less ▲]

Analogical transfer is a pivotal skill early in life and has been repeatedly investigated by developmental psychologists. Recently, it was shown that already 2.5-year-olds are capable of such transfers, even with a 24-hour delay between two analogical situations [1; cf. 2, 3]. This ability, however, is poorly reflected in early curricula, failing to build upon early problem- solving flexibility. In this study, analogical transfer of relevant information despite irrelevant, distracting or misleading information is investigated in 2.5- to 5.5-year-olds. Children participate in a play session at day-care facilities and preschools, where they attempt to transfer relevant tool-use knowledge across two analogical problems despite a distracting or a misleading problem solved in between. Preliminary results suggest that 2.5-to-5.5-year-olds are capable of discarding both distracting and misleading information in analogical transfers. Further data collection should show whether this ability correlates with general intelligence, executive function, and bi-/multilingualism. [less ▲]
