A great part of the neurohypophysial jigsaw puzzle has taken shape... and now ? This Satellite Symposium of the 9th International Congress of Endocrinology was held at a very appropriate time ! The characterization of three important types of neurohypophysial peptide receptors had then been recently reported. New pharmacological tools had become available to investigate further biological significance of vasopressin- and oxytocin-mediated actions. A few weeks before the meeting, the increasing importance of local paracrine circuits mediated by neurohypophysial signals was brought into focus by the clear demonstration of an intra-uterine circuit with a potential implication in the initiation of labour. Now, we have all returned to our laboratories, armed with new knowledge and inspired by new questions. This is the natural fate of scientific life. If the physiological importance of the oxytocinergic and vasopressinergic V2 systems has been supported by the recent discoveries, may we claim the same with regard to the vasopressinergic V1 pathways ? We were reminded of their importance in the regulation of the vascular tone, but what about the significance of the wide-spread distribution of different V1-subtype receptors ? Although analogies with other peptide systems have to be made with caution, do we in fact not observe similar evolutionary phenomena like those recently evidenced for other hormonally-related tissue growth factors ? Whatever it is, it seems more and more obvious that the precise significance of the V1 system will appear rather from studies about its implication in developmental biology and in paracrine/autocrine signaling, than from studies based on the classical neuroendocrine model of cell-to-cell communication. In any case, much work remains to be carried out before we will get a definitive answer. [less ▲]

The term “sustainable consumption” is a slogan that arose in the South to counter the phenomenon of “overconsumption” in the North. It assumes that changing consumption patterns can have an impact on production patterns and resource utilization. It also assumes that today’s food systems preserve a right to food for everyone. While we do not as yet have a unified corpus on this issue, we can nevertheless identify an area that has been the focus of considerable investigation and findings by social scientists, namely, alternative food consumption-production patterns. Alternative Agri-food Networks (AAFNs) have provided the raw material for massive scientific investigation from various standpoints, ranging from their contributions to rural development strategies via short food supply chains (SSFCs) to the AAFNs’ potential to resist and/or build alternatives to the consumer/producer relations that are imposed on society by conventional agri-food systems. Some of these initiatives have been analyzed from a more territorial perspective. This is the case of Localized Agri-food Systems (LAFSs). However, this admittedly minor trend refers back to the highly controversial notion of “local” that one finds in the English-language literature. Finally, the notion of “(Agri)Food Systems” seems to be mobilized more in conjunction with the issues of food sovereignty and the new issues that are being raised by, for example, that of “agrifuels.” The use of the term “alternative” has prevailed because it makes it possible to distinguish clearly between studies of alternative agri-food networks and conventional agri-food systems. However, it is problematic because it erases the key question of food systems’ resiliency and abilities to change and cope with a changing environment. This capacity for change concerns agri-food systems’ abilities to change their production and consumption patterns in favor of greater sustainability but also the social sciences’ abilities to allow for the complexity, contradictions, and dead ends of such movements (Dupuis, Goodman 2005). The conference’s four strands We want to tackle the question of the contributions that the study of agri-food systems and alternative agri-food networks (S3A-AAFNs) can make to sustainable development by looking at four themes, namely, 1) the initiatives’ trajectories, 2) food citizens, 3) workers in the food chain, and 4) research posture. 1. The initiatives’ trajectories towards greater sustainability: What can these initiatives’ (communities, collectives, AAFNs, etc.) practices and time frames teach us about sustainable development as a social experiment? Sustainable development is a research subject that enables us to set up observation schemes but also empirical practical intervention by players claiming to toe the sustainable development line. Following the distinction made by Thompson (1997) between a normative assessment approach (resource efficiency) and a comprehensive learning approach (functional integrity), we ask the question of sustainable development through that of the abilities of the schemes that the players set up to build awareness and learning procedures. How do these schemes influence the sustainability of production systems in particular? Seen from this perspective, the question of time can be envisioned more specifically. These questions can be grasped in a relatively conventional manner (extension of chains, professionalization of players, continuity, etc.), but one can also take a more radical approach and examine the time frames that are embedded in these networks, in the manner of the slow food movement, for example. How do these trajectories challenge the ecological modernization project, which is allegedly based on scientific rationality (technical innovation) and democratic procedures (roles of pressure groups)? More particularly, don’t these trajectories challenge the role of the food citizen that we tackle in the next strand? 2. The civic consumer’s action theory: The role of the consumer cum citizen, “civic consumer,” or “food citizen” (in the case of food) is often raised, as in Moving from the consumer to food citizen (Wilkins, 2005). However, it seems to be treated more by carving away what it is not. A first perspectives is that of the supply that defines the consume as a chooser, whereby the supply develops an ability to influence the consumer’s behavior based on the products and information that target the consumer. A second perspective, that of a consumer who is “secondarily a citizen”, that is to say, a player in civil society who will influence the public policies that are supposed to influence or “moralize” citizens’ behavior as consumers (Spargaaren, 2003). Do these perspectives allow fully for the diversity of ways in which consumers get involved? How in particular can one develop an action theory that can allow for the paradox of the “value action gap” and envision habits and changing habits? The consumer can be grasped either individually or as belonging to a group. Consequently, collective action can be considered one way in which the food citizen acts. Which forms of collective action strive to organize sustainable consumption and act as a political player? What forms of intervention and negotiation with production and market agents do they take? What are their impacts on the conditions under which products are produced and sold? Are these collectives trying to open up forms of deliberation around the sustainability of agricultural practices? 3. Workers and consumers: The aim of this strand is to allow for the worker in the food chain, the producer’s work, and the forms of solidarity that are forged between workers and consumers. Social science theorization about conventional agri-food systems gradually abandoned the issues of work and workers in the food chain over the past thirty years (Porcher, 2002). Is the study of “alternative agri-food networks” in a better position? This question of social justice is neither the subject of systematic practices in the agri-food initiatives studied in California (Allen 2003) nor the subject of very widespread theorization work, with the exception of some original research. Yet, historically, research on consumer commitment, cooperatives, and workers’ purchasing unions has attached a great deal of importance to social justice. 4. Research posture: As point out, placing the research under the aegis of sustainable consumption can lead to doing the research differently Godard and Hubert (2002). Approaches and practices may be affected by such a positioning, especially in the question formulation and outcome discussion phases. However, the research method itself can be affected. What does the question of sustainability, more specifically that of sustainable consumption, change in the research postures that are adopted and methodologies that are developed? Do the interdisciplinary research designs and finalized research have special roles to play? Specific subtopic: the issue of changes of scale and “governance.” [less ▲]

The « Abrasion » Conferences offer an almost unique opportunity to gather every three years people working in the field of abrasion resistant high chromium irons to be used in rolling and pulverizing mills. The well addresses topic and the small, but very active research community are the key factors for the success of this event. The University of Liege receives the organization by inheritance form Fukuoka (Japan 2002), São Paulo (Brazil 2005) and Trento (Italy 2008). It represents a very tough challenge for the local organizing committee, but the enthusiasm to host in Liege academic staff and people from the industry coming from all around the world was too big to renounce to this opportunity. The number of contributions for this fourth edition confirms that the idea of professor Matsubara to promote the meeting between University and Industry was really responding to the expectations of both these subjects. Scientists and technicians of 12 countries will attend the conference: Austria, Belgium, Brazil, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Spain, Sweden, Taiwan, Thailand and Turkey. Twenty high quality contributions dealing with solidification, heat treatments, microstructural properties, oxidation and wear resistances will be presented. I believe that the present proceedings will contribute to the extension of knowledge in the area of science, research, development and application in Abrasion Wear Resistant Alloyed Cast Irons for Rolling and Pulverizing Mills. Proceedings are also available in a CD Rom version. A special thanks to all people contributing to the organization of the ABRASION 2011, to the nearby industries Åkers, Arcelor, ESW, GP, Magotteaux, MK, and to the CRM Group for offering the opportunity of the technical visit to the Research plant in Liege.

Complexity in sediment transport and morphological modelling stems specifically from the variety of relevant physical processes as well as from their multi-scale nature, both in space (from grain- to catchment scale) and in time (from quasi-instantaneous bank failures to silting of reservoirs within decades). To address this, the HACH group has developed a unique modelling system, which offers high flexibility in coupling flow and sediment transport sub-models to cover the broad spectrum of relevant time scales. In this framework, the HACH has convened on 29 and 30 July 2010 an international symposium, during which recent advances in morphological modelling have been presented, as well as progresses in grain scale experiments and field measurements. The symposium was supported by the University of Liege and the Fund for Scientific Research FNRS. Contributions from many European countries were presented and discussed, including Austria, Belgium, France, Italy, Netherlands, United Kingdom and Switzerland. [less ▲]
