Im Rahmen des AMICE-Projektes wurde eine erste zusammenhängende internationale Modellrechnung für den gesamten Flusslauf der Maas inklusive des Nebenflusses Rur durchgeführt. Dazu wurden die in den Anrainerstaaten Frankreich, Belgien, Deutschland und der Niederlande vorgehaltenen numerischen Modelle verwendet. Die Randbedingungen dieser Modelle wurden in einem iterativen Prozess abgeglichen. Die Ergebnisse der zusammenhängenden Simulation tragen zunächst zu einem besseren Systemverständnis bei. Im weiteren Verlauf des Projektes fließen sie in eine Risikobetrachtung ein und werden zur Bewertung von Maßnahmen zur Reduzierung des Hochwasserrisikos vor dem Hintergrund zu erwartender Änderung der Bemessungsgrößen infolge einer erwarteten Klimaänderung herangezogen.

In this talk I discuss a significant objection that has been raised against the view of historical sciences held by Heinrich Rickert: the accusation of “fruitless formalism”. This accusation has been expressed by a large number of thinkers, including for instance Wilhelm Wundt, Edmund Husserl, Max Frischeisen-Köhler and Eduard Spranger. As one knows, Rickert answered the objection in the last editions of his major book, "The Limits of the Concept Formation in Natural Sciences". His strategy was, first, to distance himself from a certain interpretation I will call the “formal view”, and, second, to argue for the fruitfulness of his own, more sophisticated view. However, as suggested by other representatives of the Bade School (like Richard Kroner), it is doubtful that the Rickert view perfectly succeeded in resorbing the shortcomings of the formal view. - In the first, introductive section I will put the formalism-problem in connection with a definite sub-set of issues within the broader framework of the philosophy of history (1). In the second and third sections I will address two questions related, respectively, to the nature of historical form (2) and to the nature of historical material (3). I will then contrast the formal view with the Rickert view on the one hand and with Kroner’s contentual view on the other hand. In the last, conclusive section I will try to draw some general implications of the formalism-controversy (4). [less ▲]

The far-infrared surveys of nearby main sequence stars performed since the launch of IRAS have shown that a significant fraction of main sequence stars are surrounded by cold dust populations. These surveys are now culminating with the the DUNES and DEBRIS key projects of the Herschel Space Observatory, which is more sensitive than ever and is able to detect cold dust populations with densities similar to that of the solar system Kuiper belt. However, little is known about the occurence of warm dust populations, the equivalent of our zodiacal cloud. Since 2005, high-precision infrared interferometers have opened a new way to directly resolve these exozodiacal dust populations. Interferometric observations enable to reach dynamic ranges (larger than 100:1) that are generally not achievable with classical spectro-photometric observations. We are currently carrying out a survey to characterise the hot dust populations around main sequence stars. The first results of this survey, performed on the CHARA array with the FLUOR instrument, will be presented in this talk. The results are based on a magnitude-limited sample of stars surrounded by cold dust and on an equivalent sample of stars showing no cold dust emission. The statistics for the occurence of bright exozodiacal disks will be presented, and compared with the Spitzer and Herschel results. The possible (dynamical) connections between the two populations will be discussed. We will also review the results obtained by other interferometers and discuss the on-going projects. [less ▲]

Among issues susceptible to hamper a reliable measurement of inulin clearance, those regarding the dosage of inulin are largely neglected. We have compared the analytical performances of 2 commonly used methods of inulin dosage (one “acid” and one “enzymatic” method) and studied their potential impact on the glomerular filtration rate (GFR) value given by inulin clearance. Repeatability, uncertainty and the beta-expectation limits were evaluated from pre-determined serum and urine pools of inulin. Agreement between the two methods was analyzed from 99 inulin clearances performed in renal transplant patients. Impact of the method of dosage on GFR evaluation was simulated according to the respective beta-expectations limits of each method. Overall, intra-assay coefficient of variability and relative bias were inferior to 5% and 10% for both methods. Contrary to the acid method, analytical performance of the enzymatic method was not influenced by the presence of glucose. The relative difference in GFR values obtained with the two methods in transplant patients was − 0.4 ± 10%. Simulations suggested that changes in inulin concentration attributable to analytical error could modify the value of GFR from − 12% to + 28%. In conclusion, while analytical performances are globally acceptable for both methods, they are not strictly equivalent. The impact on the determination of GFR, albeit limited, is not negligible and adds to other sources of inaccuracy. International standardization for the dosage of inulin is necessary. [less ▲]

The low magnetic field vortex patterns nucleation and evolution in a high-quality two-gap superconductor MgB2 single crystal have been investigated by low-temperature scanning Hall probe microscopy. Large areas have been imaged with single-vortex resolution while changing systematically the thermodynamic parameters for field and temperature. The obtained patterns have been studied and compared with those of a reference 2H-NbSe2 single crystal. We found that the observed vortex patterns in MgB2 (e.g., stripes, clusters) appear due to competing vortex-vortex interactions as suggested by the theory of type-1.5 superconductivity. [less ▲]

Introduction: Many situations justify a close collaboration between GP, OP and SIP. Health problems impact work activity and vice versa. An altered health situation confronts workers with the risk of exclusion from the labour market. An interprofessional collaboration is thus needed to promote a more active policy of rehabilitation of workers on long term sickness absence. The Belgian Ministry of Employment initiated this study to identify communication channels and tools that could support collaboration among those health professionals. Methods: To this purpose, 8 nominal groups were organised to think about proposals to improve interdisciplinary collaboration. In sum 42 GP’s, 16 OP’s and 16 SIP’s participated in the discussions. For the elaboration of the final proposals, the research team relied on a multidisciplinary expert group. Results: An asymmetric relation was observed; each group expressed the need to receive information from the two others, but proposals to transfer information were rare. Exchanges in the groups showed that reciprocal ignorance is important and communication modalities are poor. A profound revision of the information transmission procedures seemed necessary. Several practical proposals were made to improve communication in case of sickness absence over three months, to allow information transfer and to promote mutual respect between the three disciplines. Other proposals considered professional training, and professional competencies which need to be better defined. Discussion: Misconceptions of the role of the different professional disciplines form a barrier to an effective collaboration. Technical and regulatory measures alone will not bring about a real promotion of interdisciplinary collaboration. The proposals arising from the study will contribute to increase reciprocal knowledge between professionals from the three disciplines and thus form the basis of a more effective collaboration. In turn, the experience of collaboration could have a beneficial effect on the reciprocal representations of each partner role. [less ▲]

Mon intervention entend constituer une contribution à l’histoire institutionnelle de l’enseignement du cinéma en Belgique francophone. Jusqu’ici l’histoire de l’enseignement du cinéma en Belgique s’est surtout élaborée par le biais de l’évocation des personnalités marquantes qui en ont été les acteurs (c’est par exemple dans le cadre d’un texte consacré à André Delvaux que Paul Davay évoque les débuts de l’enseignement du cinéma en Belgique dans son ouvrage, Cinéma de Belgique). L’histoire institutionnelle de l’enseignement du cinéma reste, quant à elle, largement à écrire. La mise en place de l’enseignement du cinéma en Belgique est due à diverses instances: la Cinémathèque Royale de Belgique, le Ministère de la Communauté française, les écoles d’enseignement supérieur non-universitaire et les universités. On examinera le rôle respectif de chacune de ces instances en évoquant leurs divergences de vue mais aussi leurs diverses collaborations. Faisant retour à des textes fondateurs, tel le rapport rédigé en 1966 par Victor Bachy pour l’Unesco, on montrera comment les clivages entre enseignement laïc et confessionnel qui divisent le paysage scolaire francophone en Belgique se sont répercutés au niveau de l’enseignement du cinéma, contribuant à son éparpillement. On envisagera les conceptions respectives de la culture cinématographique et des finalités de l’enseignement du cinéma qui se sont développées dans chacun des réseaux d’enseignement. On verra aussi comment les diverses écoles et universités ont défini leur spécificité en matière de contenu d’enseignement et d’approche du cinéma (théorique, pratique, pratico/théorique) pour se positionner les unes par rapport aux autres dans le champ de l’enseignement du cinéma en Belgique.

The postal sector has dramatically changed in the recent years with the ongoing liberalization process and the increased competitive pressures from alternative communication channels (e-substitution). These two effects concur to decrease the mail volume handled by the historical operator which in turn may threaten the financial viability of the universal service and may call for a reform of the universal service. This paper examines the question of reforming the postal universal service, first by considering that the universal service remains confined in the postal word and, latter, by defining a universal service that includes postal and electronic technologies.
