The B1.5 II-III star HD 180642 is the only known Beta Cephei star in CoRoT’s core programme. To complement the space data of this target, both ground-based photometric and spectroscopic data were collected, to which we added several archival observations. In this talk, we describe our results from a full integration of CoRoT and intensive ground-based observations. The star is a non-linear dominant radial mode pulsator for which low-amplitude modes are detected for the fi rst time. A few of the latter are observed in our ground-based datasets so that a mode identifi cation for them is possible. To this end state-of-the-art techniques are adapted to be applied to a star with a highly non-linear behaviour of the radial mode. Additionally, a careful interpretation of the CoRoT lightcurve helps to identify the wavenumbers. Besides this outcome, the Van Hoof effect for the dominant mode is investigated and the stellar parameters and chemical abundances are determined. All this information is to be used as additional constraints to the CoRoT pulsation frequencies, for asteroseismic modelling of this Beta Cephei star. Additional abstracts cover the lightcurve modelling of this pulsator (Degroote et al.) as well as seismic modelling (Thoul et al.). [less ▲]

The Vocontian Basin of SE France was formed along the northwestern border of Tethys during Mesozoic times. Mainly known for its rich ammonite fauna, this basin has also yielded Jurassic and Cretaceous ichthyosaur fossils. The specimens discussed here were discovered in lower Toarcian limestone and marl successions in the vicinity of Digne-les-Bains, High-Provence Alps. One of best-preserved specimens is identified as Suevoleviathan sp., a relatively rare genus previously reported only in the German basins. The specimen is fairly complete but crushed and embedded in limestone from the Falciferum ammonite zone. Because the skull is too damaged to see bone sutures, assignation to this genus is mostly based on fin and coracoid morphology. Along with this specimen, a premaxilla and paddle elements of Eurhinosaurus longirostris and possible Stenopterygiidae centra were found in nearby black marls of the Exaratum ammonite subzone (Falciferum zone, Lower Toarcian; see Floquet et al., 2003 for a detailed stratigraphy). These soft marls were deposited in anoxic waters and are coeval with the Posidonia shales of southwest Germany, the Jet rock formation of northeast England and Grandcourt shales of Luxembourg, which allows faunal comparisons between these basins. The localities from the Vocontian Basin are closer to the Tethys than other sites where Toarcian identifiable ichthyosaurs have been found in Europe. Nevertheless all identifiable specimens from the Vocontian Basin are also identified in other basins across Europe. It suggests that Toarcian ichthyosaurs had wide palaeogeographical distributions and were highly mobile swimmers, perfectly adapted to open marine environments. [less ▲]

The use of Lattice Boltzmann (LB) methods is interesting to describe flows through complex geometries encountered in Chemical Engineering (porous media, packed beds, multi phase flows). However, flow simulations based on LB methods can require big amounts of memory. It is not always possible to run a simulation on a single machine. Distributed computing is a solution to this problem and also accelerates the execution of the flow simulation. In the context of dynamic heterogeneous clusters, the available machines can have different computational powers. The computational power of each machine can vary during a flow simulation (because of background load). Also, the number of available machines can change. These characteristics impose the use of special technics. Dynamic Load Balancing allows the optimal use of available machines. A fault occurs when one or several machines interrupt the execution of the distributed software component they were executing. Checkpointing makes the system fault tolerant. In order to obtain a scalable software and to suppress single points of failure, a special effort is made to decentralize as much as possible the software components of the simulator. Currently, fluid flows of 400³ points (more than 9 GBytes of data) are simulated using an heterogeneous cluster of 54 machines. [less ▲]

Cette communication portera sur une approche évaluative du développement professionnel de futurs formateurs d’enseignants (FF). Dans le cadre d’un module de formation du master en Sciences de l’Education de l’université de Liège (ULg – Belgique), ceux-ci sont préparés à accompagner professionnellement de futurs enseignants (FE) selon une démarche de « supervision réflexive » (Beckers, 2007) inspirée des travaux de Schön (1983) et de Vermersch (1994, 2004) et complétée par l’apport de la didactique professionnelle (Pastré 2005, 2008 ). Il s’agit à la fois de maximiser les occasions pour le FE de prendre conscience de son modèle opératif en situation professionnelle et d’augmenter l’adéquation de son action par meilleure appréhension de la structure conceptuelle de ces situations en regard des buts prioritaires du métier. Cette compétence est à la fois travaillée à l’ULg (en séances collectives, individuelles et en petits groupes) et sur le terrain où les FF accompagnent les FE en stage (cette année, en classes préscolaires). Le travail théorique et pratique de la démarche de supervision réflexive avec les futurs formateurs a débouché sur la clarification de critères de qualité de l’accompagnement visé. Ceux-ci sont appliqués par les formateurs ULg aux données brutes de l’ accompagnement mené par chaque FF (traces retranscrites des entretiens de régulation et rédaction du carnet de bord). Ils sont également utilisés en auto-évaluation par les FF à propos de leur accompagnement. Cette double démarche d’évaluation (hétéro-évaluation et auto-évaluation) alimente une partie de la séance de « confrontation herméneutique » qui réunit chaque FF et les deux formateurs ULg après lecture par ceux-ci de tous les documents (données brutes et rapports). Cette partie du travail permet d’approcher le degré d’appropriation de la compétence d’accompagnement par le FF (genèse instrumentale et conceptuelle – Pastré, 2005). Chaque FF produit également un rapport qui porte sur l’analyse de l’accompagnement qu’il a mené, en interaction avec les caractéristiques contextuelles, et sur l’évolution qu’il a pu observer chez son compagnon FE du point du développement de ses compétences professionnelles et de sa construction identitaire. La discussion de ces analyses alimente la deuxième partie de la « confrontation herméneutique » ; elle permet d’approcher davantage une éventuelle genèse identitaire (Pastré, 2005). L’analyse critique de ces multiples sources d’information et la triangulation des données alimentera la réflexion sur la pertinence des outils et des démarches d’évaluation de ces processus complexes que sont le développement des compétences et de l’identité professionnelles.

A simple relaxation consisting of two rows of a simplex tableau is a mixed-integer set with two equations, two free integer variables, and nonnegative continuous variables. Recently, Andersen et al. and Cornuéjols and Margot showed that the facet- defining inequalities of this set are either split cuts or intersection cuts obtained from lattice-free triangles and quadrilaterals. From an example given by Cook, Kannan and Schrijver it is known that one particular class of facet-defining triangle inequality does not have finite split rank. In this talk we show that all other facet-defining triangle and quadrilateral inequalities have finite split rank. [less ▲]

Super Ensemble (SE) techniques have recently allowed improving the forecast of various important oceanographic parameters, such as the significant wave height, the speed of sound or the surface drift, by correcting the prediction at a single or multiple locations, where data were available during the whole training period. However, nowadays common observation systems, such as satellite imagery or drifters, do not always provide information at the exact same locations, hence it is necessary to generalize the approach in order to take benefit of every image or track available. In this study, we try and apply a SE, fed with remote sensing and gliders data, to 3-D hydrodynamic models. The basic idea on which rely the SE methods is that a certain combination of several model runs and possibly data could yield better results than just one single model, even if it has a higher temporal or spatial resolution. As the most efficient techniques are the ones using observations, they rapidly developed and increased in complexity by copying what had been done in the data assimilation community; getting from the simple ensemble mean of the model outputs to their linear combination based on a particle filter. In our present study, we have decided to use the Kalman filter (KF) as it alleviates the need of an a priori determination of the training period length, and does not require the run of a very large ensemble of members. In addition, we apply it in a 3-D framework in order to take benefit of the spatial information contained by each source of measurements. For example, satellite images of sea surface temperature (SST) are very useful to correct the value of this parameter, but depending on the structure of the water column, it can also give a precious guess of how warm or cold is the ocean at 20 m deep. In our experiment the domain of interest is the Ligurian Sea during the last week of September, when part of the set-up for the CalVal08 campaign (SiC Charles Trees) had already taken place. The data assimilated during the training of the filter are SST images from AVHRR, as well as temperature and salinity profiles from two Rutgers University gliders. The models used for the study are three nested models of NCOM, run without data assimilation. The two considered variables are the temperature and the salinity. As our method is designed to work in a multivariate way, salinity forecast can possibly be improved by observing temperature profiles. Statistics are computed for both the training and the testing periods with an independent set of data. In four test cases, we review the impact of both the nature of the assimilated data, and the formulation of the model covariance matrix. At the end, we show that, on the basis of previous model outputs from which we’ve drawn an estimate of the model covariance, RMS error of the forecast in the whole 3-D domain can be reduced by 30%, thanks to the only assimilation of satellite SST images.

Mixtures of trees can be used to model any multivariate distributions. In this work the possibility to learn these models from data by causal learning is explored. The algorithm developed aims at approximating all first order relationships between pairs of variables by a mixture of a given size.

The objective of this paper is to present the methodological developments in the DIDAM (Disaggregated demand and assignment models for combined passengers and freight transport) research project, which aims at advancing fundamental research in transportation modelling and analysis, using two complementary methodologies. The first is to develop a joint methodological approach for both freight and passenger transport, and the second is to base this common approach on the use of models that are as disaggregate and realistic as possible. Furthermore, the methods will be designed to cope with the important question of competition for infrastructure. The project is mainly organized around two themes. Each of them covers both freight and passengers aspects, in a manner which promotes collaborative work between the partners of the project. The first theme is concerned with disaggregate demand modelling issues, the second deals with innovative aspects of (joint) traffic assignment. Working at a fully disaggregate level is however not always easy. If such models are already available for passenger demand and traffic, disaggregate tools are still largely missing for freight transport. This is not only true at the operational level, but, more crucially, at the conceptual level. This is why our research program adopts, in this domain, a progressive approach that introduces disaggregation gradually into existing methods and models. This entails research in a full spectrum of issues, ranging from concepts definition (who are the actors, how can they be characterized ...) to validation exercises using available data sources [less ▲]

Observations of Saturn's infrared aurorae have shown that in addition to the main auroral oval, which is believed to be associated with the solar wind, there are significant polar emissions. Ground-based infrared observations of Saturn have been able to show that there is a general level of raised emission across the entire polar region, in a similar way to that seen at Jupiter. However, with direct observations of the aurora made from orbit around Saturn by the Cassini-VIMS instrument, this aurora was shown to be more than a relative generalised brightening in the infrared. Instead, a unique auroral feature was observed to occur, appearing as a large region of bright polar emission, positioned poleward of 82 degrees latitude. This Bright Polar Aurora emission is significantly different from the recently observed subrotating Q-branch auroral emission seen in both the ultraviolet and infrared, as it is separated from the main auroral oval by a region of low emission. This effectively produces a cap of bright aurora inside the main auroral oval, surrounded by a dark ring that separates the two aurorae. Here, we take a more detailed look at this cap of emission and examine the way the auroral feature develops with time. Bright Polar Aurora emission has been observed in two separate VIMS images. A more detailed analysis of the polar emission shows that each of these images in fact differs in structure; the first has auroral emission across the whole polar cap >82 degrees, but within the second the emission is concentrated on the dusk side. While the dramatic in-filling of the polar cap is not seen within any UV observations, the Hubble Space Telescope has observed transitory duskward auroral features within the polar cap, in a similar location to the duskward feature seen in the infrared. Using ground-based infrared observations, which allow a Bright Polar Aurora event to be broken into shorter timescale steps, it is possible analyse the progression of the infrared auroral emission with time, connecting the morphology seen within the two VIMS images with those in the ultraviolet.

In this paper, we address the issue of the future of a particular field of research in social science: Science and Technology Studies (STS). Although this is a very young research field, its history is already diverse and its evolutions are fastly moving on. Its rapid expansion and its characteristic feature of crossing disciplinary boundaries are making it an interesting case to study, which takes a particular place in the overall history – and future – of social changes. As we shall indicate, STS have an increasing committment for the resolution of sociotechnical controversies. In this paper, we problematise this particular position by underlying the implicit politics of STS research and how they will shape the future of that particular field. Our approach is threefold. First, we give a brief overview of the history of the field and we point out the main evolutions since the developement of the Social Construction of Technology approach (SCOT) in the 1980s that long influenced the field. By doing so, we underline the epistemological critical tradition that gave the field some of its particularities that we address. We show how this tradition brought important insights of “political” nature within the development of the field. Second, our ambition is to highlight new patterns of evolution of the STS field, emphasizing the trends towards both a greater depoliticisation and a more engaged research. By “depoliticisation”, we intend to analyse the dynamics of institutionalisation of the field which adopts resources and tools to legitimate itself among the social scientific community. By “engaged” research, we will explore the evolutions of the STS field as inherently political. The field does have an implicit statement in favor of changing social order and an increasing willingness to actually influence that social change. In that respect, research projects in STS often have underlying politics, as we shall demonstrate. Third, we give a concrete example of these new patterns occuring, relying on the growing importance of nanotechnologies, both in the STS literature and research projects. We consider this case study to be intertwined with the development of STS as a field of research. In that sense, we stress that nanotechnologies happened to be a powerful tool for legitimation for the STS community. Therefore, we — as STS scholars — suggest instrumentalizing the interest we have in nanotechnologies in order to observe the evolutions of our field of research. Then, nanotechnologies will constitute an interesting ground to perform a test that will show depoliticisation and engagement as patterning the STS field. [less ▲]

The aim of this experiment was to study the relation between the specific immune response and infection of slow-growing broiler chickens reared on straw litter contaminated by Campylobacter jejuni. The 11-weeks experiment was carried out in a 45 m2 broiler house with 500 chickens from 1 day of age, which had access to an open-air range. Litter contamination was performed before the setting up of the chicks by rearing campylobacter-positive cocks. These birds were also used to contaminate the open-air range during one week before the exit of the chickens, at 5 weeks of age. Blood samples were taken weekly on 20 chickens for anti-campylobacter IgG quantitative measurements on serum. Chickens were then euthanized and cecal contents and bile were collected for Campylobacter enumeration and anti-campylobacter IgA quantification, respectively. A high serum anti-campylobacter IgG titer of 110.13 was measured in one-day-old chicks. The IgG antibodies level significantly decreased to 5.60 at 28 days of age which coincided with the onset of Campylobacter infection in the flock. A significant reduction of the cecal colonization from 11 weeks of age was correlated with the increase in biliary IgA titers. These results suggest that the 2-3 week’s delay generally observed in poultry production before flock infection by Campylobacter may be, at least partly, explained by the protective effect of maternal antibodies. The increase of secretory immune response as bird age may help to limit Campylobacter population in the chicken gut. [less ▲]

The surface circulation of the Caribbean Sea and Gulf of Mexico is studied using thirteen years of satellite altimetry data. In the Caribbean Sea, processes at several temporal scales are analyzed: the Caribbean eddies and meanders characteristics, the annual cycle and its variability through time, and the interannual variability, with a cycle of about 4 years affecting the SSH slope across the current and hence the ntensity of the Caribbean Current. Our analyses suggest that this cycle is related to changes in the wind intensity, wind curl and El Niño Southern Oscillation. In the Gulf of Mexico, the variability of the Loop Current is studied. We analyze the timing of anticyclonic eddy detachment from the Loop Current, the relation between the size of these eddies and the period between detachments, and the intrusion of the Loop Current into the Gulf of Mexico. A series of extreme Loop Current intrusions into the Gulf of Mexico, when the current is observed as far as 92°W, are described. The frequency of such events appears to have increased in recent years, with only one event happening from 1992 to 2002 (in 1993) versus three from 2002 to 2006. [less ▲]
