The transition to flowering is an essential step of the plant life cycle that is tightly controlled by both endogenous and environmental cues. Its regulation is extremely complex and involves hundreds of genes that are part of highly interconnected pathways. Our knowledge of the molecular mechanisms governing the floral induction of Arabidopsis thaliana increases quickly and a significant number of reviews are published every year on this topic. However, most of them focus on a single pathway without highlighting the interconnections existing between them. Furthermore, those reviews become rapidly outdated, since our comprehension of the genetic control of flowering time evolves continuously. Hence, we believe that the current landscape of flowering time research in Arabidopsis misses an exhaustive repository of the genes involved in the control of flowering and their regulatory pathways. Here, we present a new interactive resource built around a curated database of the flowering time genes that brings together multiple pieces of information such as their function, the flowering time phenotype of mutants and overexpressing lines, the related key publications, etc. Our website thus gives access to a curated and exhaustive list of the genes involved in the regulation of flowering time in Arabidopsis as well as the regulatory pathways controlling their expression. Because of its flexibility, the database is highly dynamic and will be periodically updated with the future breakthroughs in this domain. [less ▲]

Cette communication vise à étudier la participation des femmes migrantes marocaines à la vie sociale du « pays d’accueil » ; participation qui se réalise grâce aux activités de la vie quotidienne. En particulier, la performance publique des pratiques culinaires, observée dans une ville de la province de Milan, permet aux femmes considérées d’exercer une agency à l’intérieur des espaces institutionnellement concédés à l’expression des migrants. D’un côté, la consommation des « recettes de l’Autre » de la part de la population majoritaire détermine une incorporation de la diversité afin de la contrôler. De l’autre côté, la préparation de ces recettes consent aux migrantes d’exprimer leur subjectivité (individuelle et collective) de façon active et en présentant des aspects qui vont au-delà de la culture alimentaire. Une participation sociale fondée sur le partage de nourriture donne la possibilité aux femmes d’assumer un rôle actif dans la communauté locale, tout en affirmant ses propres spécificités. Des sujets tels que la liberté religieuse sont abordés, et certains droits peuvent être réclamés par des individus qui ont ainsi acquis une position politiquement importante au sein de la société locale.

Well-developed and functional roots are critical to support plant life and reach high crop yields. Their study however, is hampered by their underground growth and characterizing complex root system architecture therefore remains a challenge. In the model plant Arabidopsis thaliana, in vitro culture remains the easiest and preferred method to study root development, which limits the analyses to young seedlings. We present here an innovative design of hydroponic rhizotron (rhizoponics) designed for the root system analysis of adult plants of Arabidopsis thaliana. [less ▲]

Cette communication vise à s’interroger sur la construction de l’identité professionnelle du chercheur en sciences humaines et sociales à travers la construction d’un collectif spontané émanant de jeunes chercheurs : le CRISdoc. Le Centre de Recherche et d’Interventions Sociologiques (CRIS) est un laboratoire rattaché à l’Institut des Sciences Humaines et Sociales de l’Université de Liège (Belgique). Créé dans le courant des années 1990, le CRIS s’est développé au départ d’un petit groupe de chercheurs mus par une même conception de la sociologie ; héritage de leurs liens étroits avec le Centre de Sociologie des Organisations (CSO). Ce laboratoire s’est progressivement étendu et diversifié en intégrant notamment des chercheurs en criminologie. Il est composé aujourd’hui de six académiques, deux chercheurs post-doctoraux, trois assistants et douze doctorants, ainsi que d’une multitude de chercheurs associés. Au sein du laboratoire, un groupe de travail baptisé « CRISdoc » a récemment vu le jour. Il est composé d’une dizaine de chercheurs (doctorants et post-doctorants). Il s’agit de comprendre les raisons d’être d’un tel collectif, de décrire les caractéristiques de ses membres et les objectifs inhérents à cette démarche. Le métier de chercheur, et particulièrement le processus doctoral, est un travail essentiellement solitaire. A l’exception des interactions avec son promoteur, au cours desquelles les lignes directrice de la thèse s’élaborent progressivement, le doctorant réalise son terrain seul, et traite seul de son objet de recherche. Notre lieu de travail nous rapproche cependant. Quoique nous soyons rarement tous présents, étant donné les impératifs de notre travail de terrain, nous partageons un même couloir. Celui-ci est le point de départ d’autres rencontres informelles Bien qu’étant rarement présents tous au même moment, du fait de nos impératifs empiriques et du fonctionnement relativement informel du service, nous entretenons des relations interpersonnelles régulières, à travers des activités au contenu professionnelles (séminaires, formations) mais surtout extraprofessionnelles (temps de midi, repas organisés par l’institution ou par nos soins, apéritifs improvisés, etc.). Ces échanges sont la preuve que nous ne sommes pas seuls. Pour autant, ils n’offrent que de rares occasions de procéder à de réels échanges de fond structurés. Depuis plusieurs mois, de nombreuses discussions informelles ont traité de cet aspect, et du fait qu’au-delà de nos différences apparentes, nous vivons en partie les mêmes expériences, questionnements, ou obstacles. En outre, nous partageons régulièrement, sans forcément y penser ou en parler, des cadres théoriques ou des méthodes de travail similaires. Peu à peu, l’idée de se réunir autour de ces différents sujets a commencé à germer. Le premier défi auquel nous devions faire face était étroitement lié à l’hétérogénéité du collectif. Nos profils sont, en effet, contrastés et de nombreuses caractéristiques sont à prendre en compte : l’âge (de 24 à 35 ans), la formation (sociologie, gestion des ressources humaines, sciences du travail, sciences politiques, langues romanes, histoire, droit, gestion de projets), le promoteur (cinq différents, avec leurs propres sensibilités théoriques), le type de recherche (fondamentale ou commanditée), le financement (FNRS, FRFC, ARC, PAI, BRAIN, assistanat), le champ de recherche (police, justice, enseignement, santé, emploi), l’expérience (début/milieu/fin de thèse, post-doctorat, contrats de recherche antérieurs), etc. Comment dès lors parvenir à créer un espace commun de travail et de réflexion ? Notre première réunion formelle était destinée à délimiter les contours et les objectifs de réunions futures. Malgré cette diversité, notre première rencontre a permis de distinguer une série de thématiques communes et de fixer un calendrier afin d’échanger sur différents sujets tels que l’organisation du travail empirique, l’articulation entre les apports théoriques et empiriques, la rupture épistémologique et le retour aux acteurs concernés, ou encore la distanciation par rapport au projet initial et au promoteur. À raison d’une rencontre par mois environ, réparties sur la présente année académique, nous procédons à un partage de connaissances, d’expériences et de conseils. Le séminaire « CRISdoc » est né. Reste la question des objectifs poursuivis, individuels et collectifs, explicites et implicites, d’une telle démarche. Tout d’abord, nous aspirons pour la plupart à partager nos questionnements, nos expériences afin de surmonter les obstacles rencontrés ou plus simplement de parfaire notre apprentissage du métier de chercheur. Nous considérons notre hétérogénéité comme une richesse dont chacun peut se nourrir individuellement : les plus expérimentés partageant leur vécu, les plus jeunes apportant un regard neuf. Ensuite, le CRISdoc remplit une série de fonctions secondaires, mais non moins importantes car il permet de partager ses doutes, craintes, déceptions, impasses, de relativiser ou démystifier la recherche, le tout dans une ambiance conviviale, peu contraignante et en dehors de toute pression ou jugement hiérarchique. Enfin, la question du collectif en lui-même reste ouverte : au-delà de la rencontre de nos intérêts individuels, la démarche participe-t-elle à l’émergence d’un véritable collectif, d’une identité « doctorant » au sein du service ? Ou ce partage n’est-il qu’une occasion supplémentaire de renforcer le caractère individuel de notre métier ? S’il est actuellement difficile d’y répondre de façon précise, ces interrogations conservent toute notre attention. Dès lors, cette communication vise à s’interroger de manière descriptive et réflexive sur ce processus de construction de l’identité professionnelle à un niveau individuel et collectif. [less ▲]

L’objectif de nos cursus est de préparer le mieux possible nos étudiants aux défis économiques, sociaux et environnementaux qui les attendent. Nous nous devons de soutenir le développement de leurs compétences de sorte qu’ils puissent non seulement s’adapter à leur environnement, mais aussi le transformer. Le LabSET accompagne depuis 2007 des institutions désireuses de réformer leur programme de formation. Sur base de ces expériences concrètes, nous tenterons d’illustrer les moyens mis en œuvre pour construire un référentiel de compétence, pour le traduire dans un programme, pour l’outiller à travers des activités d’apprentissages en profondeur et pour l’évaluer. Nous évoquerons les décloisonnements que nécessite la mise en œuvre de ces réformes, les facteurs de succès et les freins. [less ▲]

La chirurgie en cas de maladie de la Peyronie sans implant pénien peut être décevante. Il faut imaginer avec le patient, avant l’opération, la taille de la verge et la qualité de l’érection après la chirurgie de redressement.Si ces estimations risquent de conduire à une insatisfaction, l’implant pénien est une solution efficace permettant rigidité, rectitude et optimisation de la longueur de la verge. Globalement, en cas de maladie de la Peyronie et d'implant pénien, la satisfaction du patient et du couple est élevée et la durée de vie de l’implant n’est pas inférieure à celle des prothèses implantées dans des verges non déformées. Le risque global lié à l’implant est superposable aussi (sauf en cas de greffe majeure) La verge fortement raccourcie par la maladie est une bonne indication d’implantation avec des risques légèrement majorés.

Afin de maximiser le potentiel de biodiversité d’une carrière en fin d’exploitation deux options s’offrent au gestionnaire : (1) laisser les espèces recoloniser spontanément le site, (2) mettre en œuvre des appuis techniques à la restauration d’écosystèmes. Une méthode hybride associant une recolonisation naturelle et une assistance technique peut également être une opportunité pour le gestionnaire. La recolonisation spontanée des carrières peut, dans certains cas, créer une mosaïque d’habitats diversifiés pour des coûts faibles par rapport à des projets de réhabilitation ou de restauration couteux. Toutefois, l’intérêt biologique des habitats issus de successions spontanées peut fortement varier d’un site à l’autre en fonction de l’historique de gestion, des conditions climatiques et édaphiques locales, de l’isolement du site dans le paysage et du pool régional d’espèces présentes. Afin d’évaluer la nécessité ou non de mise en œuvre d’une restauration active d’habitats en carrière, il est nécessaire de caractériser les habitats issus de la succession spontanée ainsi que leur valeur biologique. L’évaluation de l’intérêt biologique d’un habitat prend en compte à la fois la diversité biologique locale (diversité alpha) et l’originalité des communautés présentes par rapport à un référentiel paysager (diversité béta). Ce projet a pour objectif de caractériser la flore recolonisant spontanément les zones xériques non exploitées dans une carrière située en Belgique (Loën, en région wallonne), du point de vue de la diversité spécifique et de la fonctionnalité écologique. Les communautés végétales ont été caractérisées au sein du site de Loën (diversité alpha) et d’un ensemble d’autres carrières représentatives de la diversité des contextes géographiques des carrières calcaires en Région wallonne (diversité béta).

The last part of SpS5 dealt with the circumstellar environment. Structures are indeed found around several types of massive stars, such as blue and red supergiants, as well as WRs and LBVs. As shown in the last years, the potential of IR for their study is twofold: first, IR can help discover many previously unknown nebulae, leading to the identification of new massive stars as their progenitors; second, IR can help characterize the nebular features. Current and new IR facilities thus pave the way to a better understanding of the feedback from massive stars. [less ▲]

Most recent SAR sensors use wide band signals to achieve metric range resolution. One can also take advantage of wide band to split it into sub-bands and generate several lower-resolution images, centered on slightly different frequencies, from a single acquisition. This process, named Multi Chromatic Analysis (MCA) corresponds to performing a spectral analysis of SAR images. Split-Band SAR interferometry (SBInSAR) is based on spectral analysis performed on each image of an InSAR pair, yielding a stack of sub-band interferograms. Scatterers keeping a coherent behaviour in each sub-band interferogram show a phase that varies linearly with the carrier frequency, the slope being proportional to the absolute optical path difference. This potentially solves the problems of phase unwrapping on a pixel-per-pixel basis. In this paper, we present an SBInSAR processor and its application using TanDEM-X data over the Nyiragongo volcano. [less ▲]

What are the similarities and differences between the behavior of a small vibrating test system and an F-16 fighter? To find it out, we compare measurements of the test system to measurements from the bolted connection of the wing and the missile of a F-16 Fighter Falcon from the Belgian air force. These measurements were done during a ground vibration test (GVT) campaign. Essentially, the behavior of these systems match, even though the test system is only the heart of a self-study kit for nonlinear system identification and the F-16 is a complex real life mechanical structure. This clearly shows the added value of an experiment driven nonlinear educational system identification package. It provides safe small-scale toy examples for hands-on exercises that react like real systems. We believe that this practical approach lowers the gap between learning system identification concepts and applying it on real systems. [less ▲]

Transcranial magnetic stimulation coupled to high-density electroencephalography (TMS-EEG) allows for directly and non-invasively stimulating the brain and recording the subsequent cortical response. Previous TMS-EEG studies have shown clear-cut differences between conscious and unconscious conditions. When subjects are unconscious, as in non-rapid eye movement (NREM) sleep early in the night (stage N3), anesthesia or coma, TMS typically triggers a stereotypical and local slow-wave response. When they are conscious, as in normal wakefulness and rapid eye movement sleep (REM) sleep, brain responses to TMS are long-lasting, widespread, complex, and differentiated. In this study, we performed TMS-EEG during NREM sleep in stage 2 (N2) and N3 on 7 healthy participants. Brain activity was recorded using a 60-channel TMS-compatible EEG and single-pulse TMS was applied (up to 285 pulses per session) on the superior parietal cortex. After each TMS session (5 to 15 sessions per night), subjects were awakened to ask for a dream report. TMS-EEG responses were analyzed using the global mean field amplitude (GMFA), the perturbational complexity index (PCI), as well as time-frequency measures. Our results show that the TMS-EEG response during N3 is larger and slower than during N2 sleep. The GMFA is higher and PCI is lower in N3 as compared to N2 sleep. Moreover, N3 recordings showed activation at lower frequency bands after TMS as compared to N2 sleep. Additionally, TMS-EEG responses vary depending on whether subjects do or do not report a dream. TMS-EEG might provide valuable information for characterizing neurophysiological fluctuations and levels of consciousness within NREM sleep. [less ▲]

More than the half of the principal sub-kingdoms of the animal world contains species that produce venom whose purposes are to immobilize, kill and pre-digest the preys. These venoms represent an exceptionally rich source of various biologically active peptides, both in their structures and their effects, which are more and more useful for human being1. Yet, the total characterization of such complex samples require advanced analytical techniques mainly due to the complexity of the sample (hundreds of compounds), the limited quantities usually available and the presence of numerous PTMs, especially disulfide bridges and specific folding. Here we present a method that combines LC and CE separation techniques coupled to mass spectrometry (MS) to characterize the peptide composition of the snake venom Naja atra. The characterization will not only focus on the toxin sequencing (LC-MS and LC-MS/MS), but will also aim at analyzing the folding of the toxins (CE-MS). To this end, native and reduced/alkylated toxins will be analyzed by both techniques. Final result targets the determination of the global hydrophobic pattern and native tridimensional folding of these strongly reticulated peptides. (1) Richard J. Lewis & Maria L.

Plant protection strategies are strongly focused today on the development of alternative methods in order to complete or replace conventional chemical inputs. Elicitors of biological origin are increasingly considered as a promising tool as biocontrol agents. They offer the possibility, through the induction of plant natural defences, to preventively protect plants against a large spectra of diseases. Multiple elicitors have already been identified since their first discovery in the late 70s, but few research has been focused on crop pathogens although such diseases can strongly impact both yield and grain quality. We describe hereby a method of elicitor screening to protect wheat against Zymoseptoria tritici. Focus is made on the importance of a good disease infection protocol in order to achieve screening tests. [less ▲]

Background: Mesenchymal stromal cells (MSC) are multipotent bone marrow progenitors that have demonstrated significant immunosuppressive effects in various in vivo and in vitro studies. This study aimed to be the first evaluation of the safety and tolerability of MSC infusion after liver transplantation in a prospective, controlled phase-1 study. This study aimed to be the first evaluation of the safety and tolerability of MSC infusion after liver transplantation in a prospective, controlled phase-1 study. Patients & Methods: Clinical grade MSCs were locally collected from the bone marrow of unrelated healthy donors. They were cultured in a GMP-compliant lab, underwent extensive quality controls and were frozen for storage in a MSC bank. When needed for patient treatment, MSC were thawed and intravenously injected into patients. 10 liver transplant recipients under standard immunosuppression (TAC-MMF-low dose steroids until day 30) received 1.5-3x106/kg MSC on post-operative day 3±2. These patients were prospectively compared to a group of 10 control (MSC-) liver recipients. Primary endpoints were MSC infusion toxicity, and incidence of cancer and opportunistic infections at month 6. Secondary endpoints were patient and graft survivals and rejection at month 6, as well as the effects of MSC on recipients’ immune function and on immunohistology of at month 6 graft biopsies. Results: No MSC infusional toxicity was observed. Both groups were comparable in terms of donor and recipient characteristics. There was no difference in primary end-points between control and MSC groups. No patient developed de novo cancer. There was no statistical difference in patient and graft survivals or in rejection rates. There was no graft rejection in the MSC group. Month-6 graft biopsies were not different according to Banff and fibrosis scores. Discussion: This phase 1 study showed excellent tolerability and safety of a single infusion of third-party MSC after liver transplantation. There were no graft safety issues and no excess of immunosuppression after MSC injection. Further analyses of consequences of MSC injection on the immune profile are needed. The possibility of avoiding calcineurin-inhibitors with repeated MSC injections as main immunosuppressive therapy and/of tolerance induction by MSC infusion should be investigated by further studies.

With the underlying hypothesis of a shift toward neoliberal science regimes, much work has been done to analyze the multiple transformations of science institutions and policies over the last decades (e.g. Mirowski and Sent 2008; Slaughter & Rhoades, 2004; Bruno, 2008). The trends towards privatization and commodification of science are undisputable but we argue that little attention has been paid so far to the various political conceptions of research and innovation (R&I) coexisting within neoliberal science regimes. Cognitive approaches to public policy already stressed the circular relationship between meaning and power (e.g. Muller and Surel, 1998; Roe, 1994), but neoliberal science has remained out of the scope of such analyses. Regarding R&I policies, this leads to different ways to conceive of the “value” of science, some related to preexisting institutions and narratives, and some branching out toward new cognitive resources to achieve politico-economic aims. In our proposal, we hypothesize the coexistence of at least four policy narratives which help structuring the representations and actions of scientists and policymakers when they address science as a political object: ‘science for the sake of science’, ‘science, the endless frontier (continued)’, ‘knowledge-based economy’ and ‘grand societal challenges’. Each one attributes a different value to science, proposes a specific organization for the R&I system, and addresses the relation between economy and society differently. In order to understand how these policy narratives are locally articulated, and thereby grounded in R&I policymaking, we analyze the political discourses on science at three different institutional levels (biotechnology labs, university management, science policy advisory boards) in Belgium. Our data were gathered through semi-structured interviews with key members of the institutions studied. By analyzing the interplay of policy narratives for R&I in a context of neoliberal science, we aim to contribute to a better understanding of the ways science is valued at different levels. [less ▲]

In the Congo Basin forests, local communities used to live from hunting, fishing and gathering, and from slash and burn agriculture. Nowadays, few places remain isolated from the external world, and local practices often have to integrate new parameters. How do family farming and forest activities evolve in a changing landscape, when forest disappears? To answer this question we selected three social and ecological systems positioned in specific places on the forest transition curve (Mather 1992), to constitute a synchronic sample of forested social and ecological system representative of the evolution of Congo Basin Forests. We conducted in 2013 and 2014 a deep analysis of family farming in 8 villages distributed in these 3 studied sites. The method crosses a systemic approach with a systematic approach: agrarian diagnoses were conducted in the three sites (Boulaud 2014; Ferlay 2014) to evaluate technical and economic performances of family farming and forest extractive activities, in parallel, census of households were conducted (Codina Llavinia 2014; Gillet et al. 2014; Lehnebach 2014) to range family activities according to their share in the family income and as subsistence means. Results were harmonized and allowed a deep understanding of the strategy of adaptation to changes of households. [less ▲]

Both in Europe and in the United States, scientific research and science, technology and innovation (STI) policies have undergone profound changes in the last thirty years. In the literature, these transitions are often framed along dichotomous lines : an 'old regime' characterized by strong public funding, independent academia and a linear conception of innovation has supposedly been replaced by a 'new regime' in which research and innovation are conceived in systemic terms, regarding their economic and societal relevance (Rip 2000). These conceptions have been criticized regarding their historical accuracy, or regarding their (un)political-reading of those evolutions (Pestre, 2003). More broadly, Nowotny has recently emphasized the fact that the political understanding of science has been black boxed in STS (Nowotny, 2014). My proposal aims at investigating the multiple political conceptions of science in a regional context: what value is attributed to science? What are its aims? How should it be organized and funded? More specifically, this paper relies on an analytical framework based on the notion of "policy narratives" for science to examine how coexisting, and sometimes competing narratives are embedded in situated discourses, policies and practices. Policy narratives include the following elements (Jones & McBeth, 2010): A context, a plot (a sequence with a beginning, a middle and an expected end: Roe, 1992), characters that have a role and intervene in the plot, and some kind of 'moral' of the story advanced as a policy solution. As narratives help actors to make sense of things and orient their actions, they are both descriptive and performative. Hence, they relate to the notion of imaginary in a very concrete sense: narrative are related to actual institutions, and emerging policy narrative can serve as rationale for change. In this paper, narratives like, e.g., the "Knowledge-based Economy", the "Grand societal Challenges", "Science, the endless Frontier", are studied. Each attribute a different public value to science: improving economic growth, tackling specific issues such as cancer or ageing population, or increasing knowledge as a good in itself. Each also propose a specific organization for the STI system, and assign a specific role to the various stakeholders (the scientists, the university authorities, policy makers, industrialists and entrepreneurs, etc.). In order to understand how these global policy narrative are locally articulated, and thereby grounded in regional STI policymaking, my research is based on interviews with a range of stakeholders in Wallonia: biotech lab leaders, members of university boards, and representatives of labor and employers' organizations in regional advisory boards. In the analysis, a particular attention is paid to the various narratives used by the stakeholders when answering broad questions, with regards to their position. More specifically, the way stakeholders depict and scenarize their own role(s) and their relations with other actors is highly political and hence should be assessed. A main thesis of the paper is that one narrative does not constitute the only resource of a (group of) actor(s). Actors refer to different narratives regarding the context and regarding the evolution they promote. [less ▲]

The purpose of the present study was to explore the ability of neglect patients to detect and exploit the predictive value of a cue to respond more quickly and accurately to targets on their contralesional side in a Posner spatial cueing task. The majority of the cues (i.e. 80%) were invalid, indicating that the target would appear on the opposite side, although patients were not informed of this bias. Our results demonstrate that some neglect patients were able to extract the cue’s predictability and use it to orient faster toward the left. This cueing effect was present even in patients who were subsequently unable to describe the predictive character of the cues, and thus was not modulated by reportable awareness of the cue-target relation.

In the present contribution, it is shown that, in the case of mechanical systems where nonlinearities are physically localised, the general structure of black-box nonlinear state-space models can be drastically simplified. A more parsimonious, grey-box state-space representation is derived, which is found to be compatible with Newton's second law of dynamics. For demonstration purposes, black-box and grey-box state-space models of the Silverbox benchmark, i.e. an electrical mimicry of a single-degree-of-freedom mechanical system with cubic nonlinearity, are identified using a maximum likelihood estimator. It is found that the grey-box approach allows to reduce markedly modelling errors with respect to a black-box model with a comparable number of parameters. It is also suggested that the greater accuracy of the grey-box model lends itself to the computation of reliable confidence bounds on the model parameters. [less ▲]

Difficulties in everyday life activities are core features of persons diagnosed with schizophrenia, and in particular during multitasking activities (Semkovska et al., 2010). Multitasking refers to activities (e.g. preparing a meal) where the person has to: (a) carry out and alternate between different tasks that vary in terms of priority, difficulty and duration; (b) define the tasks’ targets; (c) and where the person is faced with unexpected problems during the realization of these tasks (Burgess, 2000). However, the cognitive underpinnings of multitasking abilities have never been adequately explored in schizophrenia. Further, only two cognitive models exist in the literature, which are based on student (Logie et al., 2011) and neurological (Burgess et al., 2000) samples. Both of these models suggest three primary constructs: Memory, Planning and Intent. There are, however, several limitations related to the way multitasking abilities were evaluated in these studies. We thus developed a computerized real-life activity task - the Computerized Meeting Preparation Task (CPMT), which was specifically designed to take into account the multitasking nature of certain everyday life activities. Using this task, and based on previous studies (Burgess et al., 2000; Logie et al., 2011), the aim of the present study was to evaluate multitasking abilities in schizophrenia and to do so in a new cognitive model of multitasking that takes into account certain cognitive functions that are not integrated in existing models. Methods: Fifty-seven individuals with schizophrenia and 41 matched healthy controls completed the CMPT. Participants were also evaluated with a battery of cognitive tests. Results: The results suggest that the CMPT possesses good sensitivity and confirmed the three underlying constructs of multitasking (Memory, Planning and Intent), which were found to be underpinned by several cognitive functions and multitasking aspects. Conclusion: Taken together, this new cognitive model and the CMPT could be a good basis for cognitive interventions of multitasking abilities in schizophrenia. Burgess, P.W., 2000.

The consequences of collision events can range from minor structural damages of the supporting structure to complete collapse of the wind turbine, which may lead to disruptions of the electricity production and, at worst, to sinking of the striking ship with probability of loss of human lives or/and pollution. For all these reasons, a collision risk analysis becomes mandatory at the pre-design stage in order to identify the collision scenarios having the greatest probabilities of occurrence, to estimate the consequences of collision events and to ensure safe operations through the wind farm service life. The goal of this paper is to outline the behavior of the monopile foundations during ship collision by performing non-linear finite element simulations. Many collision scenarios are analyzed in order to study the sensitivity of the monopile to various parameters like impact striking ship velocity, nacelle mass, wind direction, soil stiffness, vertical location of the impact point, wind orientation … The internal energy dissipated by deformation of the monopile, the crushing force and the indentation of the crushed area are compared for different situations, as well as the overall displacements of the supporting structure.

L'intérêt de combiner l'optimisation topologique avec les méthodes de fabrication additive vient du fait que d'une part, l'optimisation topologique permet de générer des géométries complexes que les procédés d'usinage conventionnels ne sont pas capables de réaliser et que, d'autre part, la fabrication additive permet de réaliser des formes complexes telles que des cavités emprisonnées dans un volume ou des canaux non rectilignes, impossibles à reproduire en fonderie ou par usinage. De plus et contrairement aux techniques traditionnelles, la réalisation des géométries complexes n'influence pas le coût pour les techniques additives. Pour ces techniques, le coût est lié principalement au volume de la pièce. La complexité de la pièce n'est plus un problème mais un atout. Toutefois cette combinaison n'est pas encore exploitable au niveau industriel. En effet, les résultats fournis par l'optimisation topologique doivent être modifiés, souvent manuellement, pour les rendre utilisables par les méthodes de fabrication additive. Et ces modifications coûtent cher. Il est donc intéressant de limiter ou au mieux d'éliminer les étapes manuelles de la chaîne de conception. Ce papier propose une chaîne de conception optimisée pour une pièce devant être fabriquée par les méthodes additives. En outre, la prise en compte des contraintes inhérentes aux procédés de fabrication par addition de matière reste problématique. Une démarche simplifiée est proposée pour identifier les types de contraintes inhérentes aux procédés de fabrication par addition de matière, les quantifier pour certaines techniques et les intégrer dans le code d'optimisation topologique. La nouvelle chaine de conception minimise les interventions du concepteur qui rendent le processus plus lourd et moins viable industriellement. Dans cette nouvelle chaîne de conception, certaines étapes sont réalisées plus rapidement et génèrent de meilleurs résultats. [less ▲]
