This article investigates how mail-based online panel recruitment can be facilitated through incentives. The analysis relies on two incentive experiments and their effects on panel recruitment, and the intermediate participation in the recruitment survey. The experiments were implemented in the context of the German Emigration and Remigration Panel Study and encompass two samples of randomly sampled persons. Tested incentives include a conditional lottery, conditional monetary incentives, and the combination of unconditional money-in-hand with conditional monetary incentives. For an encompassing evaluation of the link between incentives and panel recruitment, the article further assesses the incentives’ implications for demographic composition and panel recruitment unit costs. Multivariate analysis indicates that low combined incentives (€5/€5) or, where unconditional disbursement is unfeasible, high conditional incentives (€20) are most effective in enhancing panel participation. In terms of demographic bias, low combined incentives (€5/€5) and €10 conditional incentives are the favored options. The budget options from the perspective of panel recruitment include the lottery and the €10 conditional incentive which break-even at net sample sizes of 1000. [less ▲]

The diversity of hundreds of thousands of potential organic pollutants and the lack of (publicly available) information about many of them is a huge challenge for environmental sciences, engineering, and regulation. Suspect screening based on high-resolution liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry (LC-HRMS) has enormous potential to help characterize the presence of these chemicals in our environment, enabling the detection of known and newly emerging pollutants, as well as their potential transformation products (TPs). Here, suspect list creation (focusing on pesticides relevant for Luxembourg, incorporating data sources in 4 languages) was coupled to an automated retrieval of related TPs from PubChem based on high confidence suspect hits, to screen for pesticides and their TPs in Luxembourgish river samples. A computational workflow was established to combine LC-HRMS analysis and pre-screening of the suspects (including automated quality control steps), with spectral annotation to determine which pesticides and, in a second step, their related TPs may be present in the samples. The data analysis with Shinyscreen (https://gitlab.lcsb.uni.lu/eci/shinyscreen/), an open source software developed in house, coupled with custom-made scripts, revealed the presence of 162 potential pesticide masses and 96 potential TP masses in the samples. Further identification of these mass matches was performed using the open source approach MetFrag (https://msbi.ipb-halle.de/MetFrag/). Eventual target analysis of 36 suspects resulted in 31 pesticides and TPs confirmed at Level-1 (highest confidence), and five pesticides and TPs not confirmed due to different retention times. Spatio-temporal analysis of the results showed that TPs and pesticides followed similar trends, with a maximum number of potential detections in July. The highest detections were in the rivers Alzette and Mess and the lowest in the Sûre and Eisch. This study (a) added pesticides, classification information and related TPs into the open domain, (b) developed automated open source retrieval methods - both enhancing FAIRness (Findability, Accessibility, Interoperability and Reusability) of the data and methods; and (c) will directly support “L’Administration de la Gestion de l’Eau” on further monitoring steps in Luxembourg.

Fragmentation and limited accessibility of charging infrastructure impede the adoption of electric vehicles. To improve the availability of charging infrastructure independent of providers, eRoaming offers a promising solution. Yet, current eRoaming systems are typically centralized, which raises concerns of market power concentration. While the use of blockchain technology can obviate such concerns, it comes with significant privacy challenges. To address these challenges, we explore a combination of blockchain with self-sovereign identity. Specifically, we apply a design science research approach, which helps us to identify requirements, derive a conceptual architecture, and deduce design principles for decentralized eRoaming and beyond. We find that blockchain may best leverage its benefits when it takes a backseat as a public registry for legal entities. Moreover, we find that the use of self-sovereign identities could improve compliance with privacy regulations, but they should not be overused. [less ▲]

We consider the problem of channel response estimation in cognitive fully adaptive radar (CoFAR). We show that this problem can be expressed as a constrained channel estimation problem exploiting the similarity between the channel impulse responses (CIRs) of the adjacent channels. We develop a constrained CIR estimation (CCIRE) algorithm enhancing estimation performance compared to the unconstrained CIR estimation where the similarity between the CIRs of the adjacent channels is not employed. Further, we we derive the Cram\'{e}r-Rao bound (CRB) for the CCIRE and show the optimality of the proposed CCIRE through comparing its performance with the derived CRB. [less ▲]

Innovative pharma-genomics and personalized medicine services are now possible thanks to the availability for processing and analysis of a large amount of genomic data. Operating on such databases, is possible to test for predisposition to diseases by searching for genomic variants on whole genomes as well as on exomes, which are collections of protein coding regions called exons. Genomic data are therefore shared amongst research institutes, public/private operators, and third parties, creating issues of privacy, ethics, and data protection because genome data are strictly personal and identifying. To prevent damages that could follow a data breach—a likely threat nowadays—and to be compliant with current data protection regulations, genomic data files should be encrypted, and the data processing algorithms should be privacy-preserving. Such a migration is not always feasible: not all operations can be implemented straightforwardly to be privacypreserving; a privacy-preserving version of an algorithm may not be as accurate for the purpose of biomedical analysis as the original; or the privacy-preserving version may not scale up when applied to genomic data processing because of inefficiency in computation time. In this work, we demonstrate that at least for a wellknown genomic data procedure for the analysis of copy number variants called copy number variations (CNV) a privacy-preserving analysis is possible and feasible. Our algorithm relies on Homomorphic Encryption, a cryptographic technique to perform calculations directly on the encrypted data. We test our implementation for performance and reliability, giving evidence that it is practical to study copy number variations and preserve genomic data privacy. Our proof-of-concept application successfully and efficiently searches for a patient’s somatic copy number variation changes by comparing the patient gene coverage in the whole exome with a healthy control exome coverage. Since all the genomics data are securely encrypted, the data remain protected even if they are transmitted or shared via an insecure environment like a public cloud. Being this the first study for privacy-preserving copy number variation analysis, we demonstrate the potential of recent Homomorphic Encryption tools in genomic applications. [less ▲]
