In this paper we present the basic principles of supervised learning and reinforcement learning as two complementary frameworks to design control laws or decision policies within the context of power system control. We also review recent developments in the realm of automatic learning methods and discuss their applicability to power system decision and control problems. Simulation results illustrating the potentials of the recently introduced fitted Q iteration learning algorithm in controlling a TCSC device aimed to damp electro-mechanical oscillations in a synthetic 4-machine system, are included in the paper.

The optimal location of terminals and logistic centres is an up-to-date research topic. The first goal of this paper is to outline a method that helps to isolate the best potential locations. The basic idea is to use the flows of commodities and their geographic spreading as input to determine a set of good potential locations for inter-modal terminals on the trans-European networks. This set can then be used in conjunction with already known optimal location models. Some approaches to solve the optimal location problems will be briefly presented. After that, the method used to obtain a detailed O-D matrix for European international freight traffic will be outlined, in addition to a short explanation on the way the demand can be assigned on a multi-modal freight transportation network. The assigned flow will be used as input to compute a set of potential locations. [less ▲]

This paper presents a new algorithm based on the segment and combine paradigm, for automatic classification of biological sequences. It classifies sequences by aggregating the information about their subsequences predicted by a classifier derived by machine learning from a random sample of training subsequences. This generic approach is combined with decision tree based ensemble methods, scalable both with respect to sample size and vocabulary size. The method is applied to three families of problems: DNA sequence recognition, splice junction detection, and gene regulon prediction. With respect to standard approaches based on n-grams, it appears competitive in terms of accuracy, flexibility, and scalability. The paper also highlights the possibility to exploit the resulting models to identify interpretable patterns specific of a given class of biological sequences. [less ▲]

The numerical optimization process of the system of hydroelectric power stations installed on a 60 km long section of the rivers Amblève and Warche in Belgium is presented in detail. The river network is modelled in quasi-2D using real natural topographic data on almost 1,100 finite volumes. In a first step, the hydrological balance is closed using a numerical solver and roughness coefficients are calibrated from water level and discharge field measurements. Secondly, the hydroelectric production is maximised by an automatic calibration of the parameters of the hydrograph released in the network at the upstream dam. This approach leads to a substantial gain in hydroelectric production, brings significant financial benefits and deals with all management and security criteria of the river network. [less ▲]

In developmental neuropsychology, attentional and executive impairments are commonly reported following acquired neurological/developmental disorders such as Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), epilepsy, ADHD… Unfortunately, most of attentional tests used in child neuropsychology were originally developed for adults and are of limited interest for children (notably because of their lack of attractiveness or because they require some non-developed skills). From a cognitive perspective, it is therefore often difficult to interpret the results obtained with such tools in children. The aim of this study was to develop assessment tasks of attentional/executive functioning which are more attractive (by using colored/familiar stimuli) and more theoretically relevant for young children. The tasks are based on Posner’s attentional model, which includes selective and sustained attention, attentional shifting and cognitive inhibition. Eighty children aged from 5 to 11 with no developmental/neurological deficits were administered tasks assessing visual selective attention (selecting a specific character among distractors), sustained attention (crossing dinosaurs in 5 minutes), flexibility (shifting between name and colour of stimuli), and inhibition (naming the real colour of a red banana or a yellow strawberry). Results confirmed the interest of these tasks in the assessment of attentional functioning in children, thanks to both their limited duration of administration and the stimuli’s attractiveness. Furthermore, results showed that tasks are sensitive to attentional development from 5 to 11 years old (p < .05). Finally, a preliminary study showed that some tasks can be particularly sensitive to attentional disorders in a clinical population of TBI children. [less ▲]

Valorisation of Municipal Solid Waste Incineration Residues - excluding ashes - is a positive advance in sustainable development : saving natural resources, decrease of wastes volume stored, reduction of energy consumption. If good conditions of incineration can be ensured and post-combustion treatments are realised, solid residues are in the form of granular materials usable in construction and civil engineering. Application for the fabrication of concrete pavement has been developed. Mechanical and physical performances of municipal solid waste incineration residues let us to replace a part of the granular skeleton and to obtain similar behaviour than for reference granular composition : splitting resistance, water absorption and resistance to abrasion are optimised. Leaching behaviour is also verified in order to avoid detrimental effect on the environment. Example of application is presented in “sleeping policeman” technique and durability of the structure is explained. [less ▲]

Recently adopted reforms of forest legislation in Central African countries take into account the interests of local communities. As organizations of different kinds have been promoting this aspect, all stakeholders of the timber sector are compelled to consider it. However, the practical implementation of this aspect often remains undefined. For vegetal NTFPs, the existing studies are typified by either a purely descriptive (ethno)botanical approach (lists of species used by an ethnic group) or by processing studies (transformation, conservation, economic value and commercialization of products) or by inventories defining the densities of certain species. Only a few studies examine the productivity of certain species. Within this context, one can conclude that there is a lack of studies that monitor the pressure exerted by local communities on the available products. The forest manager remains destitute while trying to monitor the level of exploitation of the ecosystem, while implementing a sustainable exploitation of the available resources or when he tries to set up conservation measures. This study aims at solving this problem. At first, a quantitative follow-up of the pressure exerted on vegetal NTFPs by a local Badjoué community living at the border of the Dja Reserve (Cameroon) is presented. This community of hunters and farmers (317 inhabitants) can be considered as representative of the way of life of many ethnic groups in rain forests. Pressure exerted is defined in terms of consumed quantities of each product and during several seasons. The consumed quantities are then converted into numbers of fructifying trees. Main results are twofold: on the one hand, the consumption of major exploited NTFPs can be expressed in terms of consumed quantities per habitant and per day during a certain period. On the other hand, we were able to calculate the number of tree stands that should be available to cope with the demands of the local community (with about 300 members). We could conclude that it is necessary — for our Badjoué community — to have 26 fructifying Irvingia gabonensis trees, 17 Baillonella toxisperma trees, 7 Ricinodendron heudelotii trees and 71 Trichoscypha spp. trees. Such research allows forest managers to consider the needs of local communities. Finally, the example of the Moabi (Baillonnella toxisperma Pierre) is chosen to illustrate the usefulness of this kind of approach for forest management planning. [less ▲]

Study of the genetic population structure and the demographic history of the harbour porpoise (Phocoena phocoena) has been nearly comprehensive throughout its distribution in North Atlantic, most studies using the mitochondrial control region as a genetic marker. Although these studies have shown population structure in some parts of the North Atlantic, mitochondrial DNA is a single, maternally inherited locus and therefore insufficient to fully characterize population structure and history. Polymorphism at 11 microsatellite loci was analyzed in harbour porpoises collected throughout the range of the species in the Central and Eastern North Atlantic from the Iberian peninsula northward to Arctic waters (Portugal, Spain, bay of Biscay, Irish waters, English Channel, the southern bay of the North Sea, Norway, Faroe Islands, and Iceland) and also along the coasts of the Black Sea (Turkey, Ukraine, Bulgaria and Georgia). Multilocus tests for allele frequency differences and population structure estimates indicate complete genetic isolation between Atlantic and Black Sea porpoises. No fine population structure was observed within the Black Sea, and this population displayed a low genetic diversity compared to those of Atlantic. These results can be interpreted in the light of the demographic history of this relict population and the strong founder effect and bottleneck it may have undergone in its past evolution. In Eastern North Atlantic waters, microsatellite data revealed fine scale partitioning of the genetic variation. These results will be compared to the pattern previously reported based on the analysis of the mtDNA control region, and seem to correlate with variation in oceanographic features. [less ▲]

This paper studies the aggregation of predictions made by tree-based models for several perturbed versions of the attribute vector of a test case. A closed-form approximation of this scheme combined with cross-validation to tune the level of perturbation is proposed. This yields soft-tree models in a parameter free way, and reserves their interpretability. Empirical evaluations, on classification and regression problems, show that accuracy and bias/variance tradeoff are improved significantly at the price of an acceptable computational overhead. The method is further compared and combined with tree bagging. [less ▲]

To meet the requirements of the EU Water Framework Directive, an integrated water management project named PIRENE was initiated by the Walloon Region of Belgium. A partner of this project, the Hydrogeology Group of the University of Liège, is in charge of the development of a physically based transient groundwater flow and transport model for the Walloon part of the Meuse Basin (approximately 17 000 km2). To face the problems associated with this large-scale model, a general approach has been developed that combines a hydrogeological database and GIS systems to manage data. Techniques of spatial discretization have been applied that optimize the number of unknowns. For modelling groundwater flow and transport on a large scale, a new numerical approach called the Hybrid Finite Element Mixing Cell (HFEMC) has been implemented in the 3-D simulator SUFT3D.

On analyse un corpus d’images photographiques de l’artiste J.-P. Witkin qui mettent en scène des corps affectés par le dysfonctionnement des organes. Ces derniers ne sont pas représentés comme des corps vivants et uniques, différemment de ce qui se passe dans le genre pictural du portrait (qui implique une forme de vie singularisante), mais ils figurent comme des objets de design ou comme des natures mortes. Cette recherche met donc en évidence l’écart entre les genres stabilisés dans la tradition picturale et les genres photographiques. [less ▲]

Recently, Ge et al. (2003) reported a very high accuracy of memory for a highly familiar face. Their Chinese participants had to identify the most veridical appearance of Mao’s face among unaltered and transformed (inter-ocular distance was gradually increased or decreased) versions of his portrait. In the present experiment, the same facial transformations were applied to our participants’ faces to evaluate whether this hyperfidelity for familiar faces is specific to famous individuals whose face is mainly known from a standard portrait or if it could generalise to personally known faces (the own face and a close person’s face). Results showed that performance was not different for the two familiar faces in the recognition task, or between the recognition task and a perceptual discrimination task. The high accuracy of memory previously shown for a very famous face generalises to personally known individuals for whom we have a various visual experience. [less ▲]

Dans la sphère des activités d’éducation et d’encadrement de la jeunesse, l’école et la famille ont longtemps occupé une position prépondérante. Mais leur place et leur rôle se sont considérablement modifiés avec les changements survenus dans l’organisation politique des sociétés et dans les échanges intergénérationnels. L’affaiblissement des programmes éducatifs « traditionnels » contribue à remodeler les frontières entre les différents acteurs institutionnels et à susciter de nouvelles attentes à leur égard. Dans ce contexte, quelles questions peuvent aider à orienter l’action des associations de jeunesse ? [less ▲]

The usefulness of various soil parameters to predict naturally occurring levels of some metallic trace elements (MTE) in soils has been studied for some agricultural and forest soils of Southern Belgium. The driving factors of the content in Cu, Ni, Pb, and Zn were investigated through multi-scale comparisons. This paper deals with multivariate and regression analysis of the results. [less ▲]

Objectif : Un transfert analytique consiste à transférer physiquement une méthode analytique précédemment validée depuis le laboratoire émetteur vers un laboratoire receveur après avoir démontré que le laboratoire receveur maîtrise la méthode. Il est donc essentiel d’avoir toutes les garanties que la méthode est en effet maîtrisée par le laboratoire receveur. Deux nouvelles approches statistiques basées sur l’utilisation de l’erreur totale comme outil de décision quant à la validité d’un transfert de méthodes analytiques ont été décrites (1). Nous nous proposons ici de montrer l’applicabilité de ces deux approches au cas du transfert d’une méthode de dosage automatique de trois catécholamines majeures dans l’urine humaine. [less ▲]

The usual description of dust-modified ion-acoustic and dust-acoustic solitons in plasmas containing negative dust is in terms of Boltzmann distributions for the hotter species. In the dust-modified ion-acoustic regime, besides positive potential solitons, negative ones can also be generated, for non-Boltzmann as well as for Boltzmann electrons, subject to very mild conditions that were previously ignored or given for weakly nonlinear solutions only. In the dust-acoustic domain in plasmas with negatively charged dust, however, only negative potential solitons can occur, even when the lighter species have non-Boltzmann distributions [less ▲]
