Mutation testing is a well-known testing technique which combines error injection and unit testing. Mutation testing is an approach that tests the efficiency of the test suite, but in doing so it also allows to achieve a better understanding of the System Under Test (SUT). This work extends mutation testing techniques to ontologies expressed in the OWL language. Mutation operators on OWL ontologies change the semantics of the ontology, regardless of the syntax in which it is expressed. Mutation testing can assist the designer in the identification of potential flaws and in the maintenance of the ontology. [less ▲]

Would you buy flowers at the petrol station? This presentation examines the petrol station trope and its oscillation between site (a space where people interact) and sign or cultural signifier. It presents the result of the empirical study carried out in the interdisciplinary research project 'IDENT2 - Strategies of Regionalisation: Constructing Identity Across Borders', and examines the transformation of the physical 'petrol station' into a 'code' that is actively used as a qualifier in popular culture and in everyday life situations.

The notion of natural extension can be defined for any algebra in an IRF-prevariety. In this talk, we introduce a way to extend functions between algebras to multifunctions between their natural extensions, and we give sufficient conditions under which we can assume that these multifunctions are functions. We illustrate these constructions for the variety of median algebras, and we prove that retractions over median algebras are preserved by natural extensions. [less ▲]

Let M be the Simpson moduli space of semistable sheaves on the projective plane with fixed linear Hilbert polynomial P(m)=dm+c. A generic sheaf in M is a vector bundle on its Fitting support, which is a planar projective curve of degree d. The sheaves that are not vector bundles on their support constitute a closed subvariety M' in M. We study the geometry of M' in the case of Hilbert polynomials dm-1 (for d bigger than 3) and demonstrate that M' is a singular variety of codimension 2 in M. We speculate on how the question we study is related to recompactifying of the Simpson moduli spaces by vector bundles. [less ▲]

Sustainable development remains a powerful concept across European and global fields of policy-making. Spurred by the all-encompassing threat of climate change, the rhetoric of a great transformation successfully occupies current policy and practice. However, in contrast to the doom and gloom predictions, and in stark contrast to the sheer magnitude of the challenge of dealing with such complex set of problems, recent policy ideas and recipes seem trivial, and overly rationalised and optimistic. With respect to this, there are two interrelated issues that will be explored in this session. First, much of this new rationality of sustainability moults into popular labels such as ‘green’ or ‘smart’ where the city is the primary setting. This search for practical solutions in the city is further buttressed by the ‘sustainability business’ and associated green-washing practices that have emerged, as well as a variety of tools to assess, monitor, evaluate, and certify sustainability initiatives (indicators, metrics, and planning orthodoxies such as density, integrated, or holistic planning) that have become standard practice. Scholars have been active to identify the pitfalls here: Elgert & Krueger (2012) discussed the epistemology of metrics; Wiig (2015) interrogated the corporate strategy of a multi such as IBM behind ‘smart city’; Angelo & Wachsmuth (2015) criticised ‘methodological cityism’ in political ecology; Purcell (2006) showed the limits to localism; Mössner (2013) exposed socio-political limits of green cities. These criticisms highlight that there is something else to explore beyond current notions of sustainability. In this session, we explore further critiques of existing attempts, as well as conceptions of sustainability that embrace more contemporary imaginaries of urban geographies. These include critical reflections on super-optimist projects such as transition towns, or green cities (e.g. localism, methodological city-ism, green-washing in urban marketing), and thoughts on the disparity between the normative of sustainable development and current policy realities (How has this disparity changed? How is it produced? What lays outside the current lens? How has green urbanism changed over time and across places?). The second issue relates to expectations of knowledge proliferation in academia, as research communities are increasingly embedded in contradictory settings, expected to provide results and not problems, to be frank but constructive, and moreover, to be elite, excellent, income-generating as well as critical. In this respect, there is thus good reason to analyse the research-policy nexus, as Woods & Gardner (2011), Pain (2006), and Beaumont et al. (2005) have explored, examine the construction of knowledge claims as Rydin (2007) has explained, and rework some considerations with regards to rationalist modes in sustainable development and emerging sustainability modernities. We thus also want to interrogate the tensions between the construction of positivist sustainability on the one hand, and the position of the critical researcher on the other hand – the treading of the fine line between Dennis Judd’s (2005) claim that urban scholars tend to assume that “everything is always going to hell” (Judd 2005) and Elbert Hubbard’s classical “positive anything is better than negative nothing” (Hawthorne 1902). Concrete questions addressed here are: Who is producing claims to knowledge in practices of sustainable development urbanism? What are the possibilities and limitations for researchers to balance constructive interventionism with realistic limits of sustainable development and all its complexities, messy politics, wicked problems that are observed in human geography? How is it possible to pursue state-led contract work while maintaining critical integrity? What are relevant reflections the ontology, methodology and ethics of applied SD research practice?

Public transcriptomic studies have shown that several genes display pronounced gender differences in their expression in the human brain, which may influence the manifestations and risk for neuronal disorders. Here, we apply a transcriptome-wide analysis to discover genes with gender-specific expression and significant alterations in public postmortem brain tissue from Alzheimer’s disease (AD) patients compared to controls. We identify the sex-linked ubiquitin-specific peptidase 9 (USP9) as an outstanding candidate gene with highly significant expression differences between the genders and male-specific underexpression in AD. Since previous studies have shown that USP9 can modulate the phosphorylation of the AD-associated protein MAPT, we investigate functional associations between USP9 and MAPT in further detail. After observing a high positive correlation between the expression of USP9 and MAPT in the public transcriptomics data, we show that USP9 knockdown results in significantly decreased MAPT expression in a DU145 cell culture model and a concentration-dependent decrease for the MAPT orthologs mapta and maptb in a zebrafish model. From the analysis of microarray and qRT-PCR experiments for the knockdown in DU145 cells and prior knowledge from the literature, we derive a data-congruent model for a USP9-dependent regulatory mechanism modulating MAPT expression via BACH1 and SMAD4. Overall, the analyses suggest USP9 may contribute to molecular gender differences observed in tauopathies and provide a new target for intervention strategies to modulate MAPT expression. [less ▲]

Cette contribution a pour objet d'analyser l'importance des frontières nationales pour les identités spatiales dans des régions transfrontalières. À cet effet, elle élaborera un modèle d'analyse pluridimensionnel permettant d'étudier les identités et, à l'exemple de la Grande Région SaarLorLux, posera la question de savoir comment les habitants se représentent l'espace et organisent leur pratiques de vie quotidienne sur le plan spatial. Par ailleurs, l'analyse révèlera des projections spatiales dans le discours politique et montrera dans quelle mesure celles-ci constituent une base de processus identitaires. La contribution démontre que, malgré des imbrications transfrontalières, les frontières nationales jouent un rôle important dans les processus de projection et d'appropriation identitaires des habitants de la Grande Région SaarLorLux, mais pas nécessairement en tant que catégories rigides.

When designing for embodied interactions, the convergence of spatial human behaviour with physical space is often not sufficiently considered. This can cause unintended consequences in the user experience, whereby the user may or may not be aware of the effects. In this talk I will discuss a study that was conducted into the spatial player behaviour of a multiplayer game installation. The installation’s interface was designed for embodied interaction and required whole body movements to play the game. The spatial analysis investigated a range of players’ activities in the game-space which revealed synergistic effects combining perceptual-motor factors with game-strategy behaviour. As games are becoming increasingly embodied and social the study’s findings illustrate that the role of space should receive more attention which may also require for designers to incorporate new methodologies into the design process.

In multilingual contexts, such as in Luxembourg, individuals are exposed to various languages spoken by different inhabitants. An important question within the framework of person perception is to what extent language attitudes influence our evaluative responses (i.e., differential perceptions of languages effect perceptions of speakers of these languages). However, multilingualism not only concerns the differential perceptions of languages but also refers to perceptions of (nationality) groups speaking such languages. The present project focuses on the interplay of attitudes towards languages and (national) groups of language users and their impact on speaker evaluations. To this extent we are adapting and testing a model of person perception based on linguistic cues. In addition, the proposed theoretical model assigns particular importance to the distinction between implicit and explicit information processing, which may be involved in multilinguals’ attitudes towards languages and language users.

The presentation defends a fullblooded, 'thick' virtue-theoretic account of epistemic normativity. If we think of beliefs as under the control of rational agents, by means of their rational capacities, the norm of excellence (or 'virtue') applies to doxastic action as well as any other rational action. An argument is presented to the effect that the knowledge norm is the right norm of belief. [less ▲]

Since the Digital Agenda was launched in 2010 called the European copyright debate has seen an unprecedented involvement of society. Culminating in the Public Consultation on the Review of EU Copyright Rules many demands have been voiced. The most recent policy initiative, which is scheduled to produce legislative proposals in late 2015, promises to deliver tangible results. However, the Digital Single Market Strategy ignores some of the most pressing issues for users of copyrighted material. The paper looks at two critical fields that demand solutions, or at least clarifications. First, following the UsedSoft judgment of the CJEU the question whether digital content can be resold has not been answered, with national courts giving differing answers. Second, a necessary extension of limitations and exceptions has constantly been delayed and has created legal uncertainty with regard to user-generated content, text and-data mining and other uses of protected works. In both discussion users have participated vividly and have been supported by academics and politicians. However, their requests for legislative intervention are not reflected in the current policy agenda and are, therefore, unlikely to feature in the draft legislation announced for the end of this year. The paper will illustrate the consequences for users and their interests, which vary from business opportunities to the exercise of basic fundamental rights. [less ▲]

The inverse Galois problem, first addressed by D. Hilbert in 1892, asks which finite groups occur as the Galois group of a finite Galois extension K/Q$. This question is encompassed in the general problem of understanding the structure of the absolute Galois group G_Q of the rational numbers. A deep fact in arithmetic geometry is that one can attach compatible systems of Galois representations of G_Q to certain arithmetic-geometric objects, (e.g. abelian varieties). These representations can be used to realise classical linear groups as Galois groups over Q. In this talk we will discuss the case of Galois representations attached to Jacobian varieties of genus n curves. For n=3, we provide an explicit construction of curves C defined over Q such that the action of G_Q on the group of l-torsion points of the Jacobian of C provides a Galois realisation of GSp(6, l) for a prefixed prime l. This construction is a joint work with Cécile Armana, Valentijn Karemaker, Marusia Rebolledo, Lara Thomas and Núria Vila, and was initiated as a working group in the Conference Women in Numbers Europe (CIRM, 2013).
