In this talk, three research topics, which are related with multibody dynamics, are presented: - simulation of mechatronic systems, with an application to a semi-active suspension, - model reduction techniques for the design of motion and vibration controllers, with an application to a lightweight manipulator, - topology optimization of structural components of mechanisms. Let us mention that those developments have been implemented in the Oofelie finite element software. [less ▲]

Ludico-symbolic coups and assassination attempts, make-believe funerals and degeneration of trials into grotesque rhetorical jousting : everywhere throughout Europe and the United States in the mid sixties, political happenings thrived. The acts/performances, which were for the most part carried out by groups or individuals close to the Marxist and pacifist student protest movement, can’t be dissociated from a situationnist understanding of the urban milieu, transformed into one large stage for militant theatre. Founded on the principal of diversion and provocation, these actions quickly led to inflation and overbidding. Caught in a hectic whirl which forced them to always push the limit further in order to evade, if only temporarily, a process of institutionalisation that threatens any act of provocation, they soon begin to loose their political effectiveness. Born from a common political and artistic origin as the leaders of the student left movement, several “terrorist” groups harden their tone at the beginning of the seventies and perpetrate acts of violence with a revolutionary intention. Breaking away from the theatrical and ludic student activity while also retaining their situationnist obedience and a certain theatrical conception of the urban place, these armed groups think up actions in the beginning of the seventies which induce a rupture in the performative and theatrical tradition of the end of the sixties. These acts have been the subject of in depths studies by authors who, however conscious of the theatrical origins of the actions of the extreme left terrorists, refer to a terminology which imposes a distinction between action (or happening/performance) and “terrorist” acts. On the basis of this terminological distinction, we will demonstrate not only that these actions of the beginning of the seventies must be considered in a direct lineage with the political-theatrical creation of the end of the sixties, but that they also offer a first escape route, politically efficient, to the inflation which threatens any act of provocation. If the actions of the RAF, the Red Brigades or the Weathermen evade institutionalisation which threatens any act of provocation, they nevertheless remain politically unsustainable and condemn those who imagine them as well as those who execute them to an inevitably tragic ending, incompatible with the pursuit of creative practice. This paradigm will guide us in identifying some more recent creative processes (fake conferences of the Yes Men, shows/performances of Leo Bassi) which try to overcome in turn the political precariousness of their predecessors in endowing themselves with an (auto)reflexive dimension. Beyond their heterogeneity, these actions/shows shall thus be perceived as objects which surpass the act of provocation, inevitably destined to wear out. Because, in actively implicating the spectator to a point where he becomes a full fledge component of an engaged and reflexive creative process, these practices reinstate the politico-theatrical performance in its indispensable efficiency.

geometallurgy will become the central pivot of a successful mining operation. Recently, Europe has awakened from a long period of lethargy in the raw materials sector. A series of important initiatives inspired by the European Innovation Partnership (EIP) have paved the way for more intense cooperation between industry, research centres and universities. Among these, the establishment of a Knowledge Innovation Community (KIC) in 2015 will definitely boost innovation and education in the sector. Interestingly, EIP addresses the whole value chain and considers mining, recycling and substitution as essential pillars of the raw materials policy. This vision strengthens the role of geometallurgy but also brings up the need for a close dialogue between mineralogists, metallurgists and product designers. Microelectronics and nanotechnologies are ubiquitous in our technologies and have greatly improved their functionality, but they have also made recycling and efficient recovery of metals a tough technical challenge. Our urban mines formed by the accumulation of end-of-life products should be scrutinized from now on using an ecometallurgical approach whereby important questions should be addressed such as: 1. Metal concentrations: Is the metal grade high enough to pay for recycling? Does the manufacturer help to maintain grades above a technological cut-off? 2. Metal speciation: Under which form (alloy, salt, organic compound,…) is the metal present? Is there a processing technology available to separate these species? 3. Metal paragenesis: What are the metal assemblages found in the product? Will it be feasible to separate those metals and at what costs? Are there penalty or contaminating elements associated? 4. Textural assemblage: How will the product behave during dismantling? Is it realistic to liberate a given component? What comminution strategy will be needed to achieve phase liberation? 5. Reserve estimation: What are the tonnages expected for this kind of product? Can selective collection be organised? 6. Homogeneity: What will the next generation of products look like? Should one expect strong differences in concentration, speciation, paragenesis, etc.? Will this kind of product be blended with others during collection? How will this impact on downstream recycling? Ecometallurgy, as introduced here, is essentially about establishing a dialogue with product designers and material scientists to make sure that, once unearthed, metals will remain easily and sustainably available for the future generations. Geologists and mineralogists, even though generally kept away from the synthetic materials, could greatly contribute to this progress by bringing their expertise in dealing with complex and variable orebodies of the future.

Scorned since antiquity as low and animal, the sense of taste is celebrated today as an ally of joy, a source of adventure, and an arena for pursuing sophistication. The French exalted taste as an entrée to ecstasy, and revolutionized their cuisine and language to express this new way of engaging with the world. From Gluttony to Enlightenment explores four kinds of early modern texts--culinary, medical, religious, and philosophical--to follow taste's ascent from the sinful to the beautiful. Combining food studies and sensory history, it takes readers on an odyssey that redefined a fundamental human experience. Scholars and cooks rediscovered a vast array of ways to prepare and present foods. Far-sailing fleets returned to Europe bursting with new vegetables, exotic fruits, and pungent spices. Hosts refined notions of hospitality in the home while philosophers pondered the body and its perceptions. These labors produced a sea change in perception and thought, one that moved taste from the base realm of the tongue to the ethereal heights of aesthetics. [less ▲]

A health promotion process has been launched within a large Belgian university hospital. This presentation outlines the organisational background of the whole process and the rationale underlining the choice of the methodologies used to survey the health needs of the health care workers and to define priorities. In order to elicit effective participation from the staff members, several questions have to be addressed in the transitional phase between problem situations assessment and ergonomic intervention : which channels use to disseminate the information about the survey results, what role for the top rnanagernent of the hospital and for the ergonomic experts, which support methodologies should be provided for initiating the change process?

this paper will offer an overview of procedures allowing EU agencies to determine the equivalence of third country regulatory regimes and conceptualise the accountability challenges they pose. Proceeding in three parts, the first part will identify and classify the different third country equivalence procedures in place. Analysing the legal basis for agency intervention and the specific powers granted to the respective agencies in that respect, this part will allow to develop a topology of two different equivalence roles conferred on EU agencies. Building upon this descriptive analysis, the second part will identify two accountability challenges associated with each of the identified third country equivalence procedure categories. Seeking to overcome those challenges, the third part of the paper will make four pointed suggestions aimed at recognising explicitly and in a more centralised way the external action powers conferred on EU agencies. Doing so would at the very least allow better to tailor modifications to the external action frameworks against the background of which existing equivalence procedures currently already implicitly operate.
