This research presents the results of a quantitative and qualitative analysis of the use of the Dutch placement verbs zetten (‘put’) and leggen (‘lay’) by French-speaking learners of Dutch. The experiment consisted of two parts: a receptive as well as a productive part. The analysis focused on two aspects: speech, but also the gestures made by the participants were both quantitatively and qualitatively analyzed. The results confirm that the use of Dutch placement verbs is problematic for French-speaking learners of Dutch, but they also reveal some important tendencies. First, my analysis demonstrates that French-speaking learners tend to underuse these verbs, which can be explained by the fact that placement events in French are often described by means of a neutral verb such as mettre (‘put’) as opposed to the more specific verbs in Dutch. Secondly, the learners occasionally also tend to overuse the placement verbs in contexts where such verbs are not allowed, an observation which is seemingly paradoxical to the first one. Thirdly, some learners also tend to confuse zetten with leggen and vice versa. These findings are interesting given that the Dutch placement verbs, with a few exceptions, remain a relatively unexplored area within the field of linguistics. [less ▲]

When you are in a joyful mood, how do you know that it is so? On a Cartesian picture, the answer is that you’ve got some immediate, noninferential apprehension of your being joyful, such as (i) this noninferential apprehension is analogous to sense perception (perceptual account), and (ii) unlike sense perception, it makes it unquestionable or evident to you that you presently are in a joyful mood (epistemic privilege). In this paper, I defend this view against some classical objections, arguing that pre-reflective self-consciousness actually is analogous to sense perception. [less ▲]

La posidonie (Posidonia oceanica), forme en Corse des herbiers colonisant les substrats depuis la surface jusqu’à 40 m de profondeur. Ces herbiers jouent un rôle écologique essentiel en oxygénant le milieu grâce à la photosynthèse et en séquestrant du CO2 au sein de leur complexe racinaire dans le sédiment (ou "matte"). Ces activités métaboliques entraînent une importante modification des conditions biogéochimiques du substrat qui favorisent le maintien de la plante. Les herbiers de posidonie se développant dans les zones côtières, ils sont impactés par les activités anthropiques (urbanisation, pollution, fermes aquacoles, ancrage) qui peuvent entraîner d’importantes destructions et des régressions de leur zone de recouvrement. L’ancrage intensif dans les herbiers à faible profondeur y génère des trouées, ou "intermattes". Les destructions engendrées par les navires de petite taille (< 10 m) peuvent, dans certaines conditions, être recolonisées par la posidonie. Cependant certaines zones sont soumises à l’ancrage intensif de navires de plaisance de grande taille (> 20m), qui est susceptible de générer des intermattes d’une étendue plus importante. Ce phénomène d’expansion ne peut s’expliquer par la seule destruction mécanique. L’arrachage de la strate foliaire de la posidonie par les ancres semble entraîner de profondes modifications physiques et chimiques dans le sédiment. Un milieu anoxique défavorable à son développement paraît se créer. Des composés toxiques pour la plante, tel que le sulfure d’hydrogène (H2S), pourraient alors s’introduire dans ses tissues entraînant une limitation de son développement, voire sa disparition menant ainsi à une amplification des dégâts mécaniques de l’ancrage.

This paper examines the dynamic trading strategies implemented by hedge fund managers using a Kalman filter of hedge fund betas across styles. We further investigate the risk drivers of dynamic trades, examining which conditioning/macroeconomic variables strongly lead the time variation in fund trades. We report the significance of macroeconomic factors such as interest rates, dividend yield, GDP growth and US unemployment. We show that hedge fund managers do control the intensity of their exposures according to economic uncertainty and that differences between up- and down-market regimes can be observed. Commonly, Hedge funds tend to dislike high-dividend paying stocks. Besides, all hedge fund styles are shown to display pro-cyclical exposures towards directional equity factors as well as credit and liquidity risks. Small growth stocks, however, are revealed to be crisis investments whose allocation increases with unemployment, inflation or volatility. As volatility increases, the value of growth options embedded into growth stocks indeed increases. Growth stocks are shown to hedge market reversals and volatility. The outperformance of growth companies in recessions might also relate to their cost flexibility. Allocation to small stocks embed strong micro risks and might also constitute a hedge in economic slowdowns. This might explain why some funds with such a particular investment focus appear to be countercyclical. [less ▲]

In an interview, Australian novelist, essayist and academic Gail Jones claimed an interest in psycho-geography, i.e. “in the idea,” as she puts it, “that we must walk around our own place with an active intelligence and with a degree of radical attention to what is there.” Taking Sydney as an example, Jones insists on the importance of looking at the city’s “shapes, its motions,” of attending to its “sounds, corridors between spaces, the unexpected.” It is, she continues, “about apprehending things through shapes and signs.” Sydney, to Jones, is a place haunted by its colonial inheritance, and Australia, more generally, is a “colony of trauma”, a place where “there is always a tension between remembering and forgetting.” First published in 2011, her novel Five Bells takes place on a single Saturday in January in cosmopolitan Sydney and draws together four characters with their different national backgrounds, haunting histories and memories, all converging on Circular Quay, an Aboriginal site also marked as the place where Captain Cook first set foot. Thus in Five Bells, time and space are merged, or to put it as Jones does, “within the material spaces of a city are these immaterial traces of something else.” By the same token, Jones distinguishes between a vertical and a horizontal history: on the one hand, she explains, “there is the history that seems to be unfolding and moving forward,” while on the other hand there is a “plunging down into the interiority of the place, into its lost history.” This merging together of time and space, of history and geography also finds an echo in A Guide to Berlin, Jones’s latest novel, published in 2015. Following in Vladimir Nobokov’s footsteps on both, a textual and metatextual level, this novel narrates the coming together of six foreigners, gradually entangling their thoughts, their memories, their pasts, presents and futures in haunted and snowy Berlin. Focusing on both, the materiality and immateriality of Sydney and Berlin in Five Bells and A Guide to Berlin, my paper will seek to investigate how Jones draws on the trope of temporal and spatial inheritance in both novels to offer ethical understanding within and between re-imagined trans-historical communities.

Hydrogeological inverse modeling is used for integrating data and calibrating subsurface model parameters. On one hand, deterministic approaches are relatively fast but fail to catch the uncertainty related to the spatial distribution of model parameters. On the other hand, stochastic inverse modeling is time-consuming and sampling the full high-dimensional parameter space is generally impossible. Even then, the end result is not the inverted model itself, but the forecast built from such models. In this study, we investigate a prediction-focused approach (PFA) in order to derive a direct statistical relationship between data and forecast without explicitly calibrating any models to the data. To derive this relationship, we first sample a limited number of models from the prior distribution using geostatistical methods. For each model, we then apply two forward simulations: the first corresponds to the forward model of the data (past), the second corresponds to the forward model of the forecast (future). The relationship between observed data and forecast is generally highly non-linear, depending on the complexity of the prior distribution and the differences in the two forward operators. In order to derive a useful relationship, we first reduce the dimension of the data and the forecast through principal component analysis (PCA) related techniques in order to keep the most informative part of both sets. Then, we apply canonical correlation analysis (CCA) to establish a linear relationship between data and forecast in the reduced space components. If such a relationship exists, it is possible to directly sample the posterior distribution of the forecast with a multi-Gaussian framework. In this study, we apply this methodology to forecast the evolution with time of the distribution of temperature in a control panel in an alluvial aquifer. We simulate a heat tracing experiment monitored with both well logging probes and electrical resistivity tomography. We show (1) that the proposed method can be used to quantify the uncertainty on the forecast both spatially and temporally and (2) that spatially-distributed data acquired through geophysical methods help to significantly reduce the uncertainty of the posterior.

In this article, we present a Building Information Modeler essential for creating, viewing and evaluating the performance of a modular building project, based on a digital model. First, we explain our approach, called "by components" and its central notion of "catalog", capable of supporting the virtualization of the construction system in the modeler. Secondly, we describe the software architecture established for this original modeller, based on a dual-purpose data model: representing the catalogs of components and allowing the encoding of a specific project within the software. Then, our article will introduce the products obtained, in terms of operating geometric and semantic information from the catalog components. In particular, it will show how, depending on the driving activity types, these productions can be generated under different operating formats. Finally, the article will introduce the limits of this Building Information Modeler and the future opportunities provided by its extensibility. [less ▲]

The origin of the eukaryotes remains one of the most contentious puzzles in evolution. In the late 1970s, C. Woese discovered Archaea and put an end to the dichotomous view of Life (eukaryote vs prokaryote). Since Woese’s revolution, the Tree of Life (ToL) has been divided into three domains (Bacteria, Archaea and Eukaryota), yet with unclear relationships. Rooting the ToL then became a problem. Indeed, the question of the origin of eukaryotes is directly related to the location of this root, which also affects the nature of the Last Universal Common Ancestor (LUCA). Several scenarios might explain the origin of the eukaryotic cell: (a) the three domains have an independent origin and directly stemmed from the primordial soup; (b) the three domains stemmed from a simple LUCA, and their evolution proceeded by increasing complexity in eukaryotes; (c) the three domains stemmed from a complex LUCA, and their evolution proceeded by simplification in prokaryotes; (d) eukaryotes originated from a fusion event between an archaeon and a bacterium, the latter being the mitochondrion and their other properties evolving after this event; (e) eukaryotes originated from a fusion event between an archaeon and a bacterium, the result being a proto-eukaryote not yet equipped with a mitochondrion. During the last 15 years, technical advances in phylogenetic methods have relocated many simple organisms higher in the ToL, which means that they are actually secondary simplified. However, even the best evolutionary models are not yet able to address difficult phylogenetic issues, whether at shallow depth or at deep evolutionary times. This raises a fundamental question: does simple always mean ancestral? For the time being, the commonly accepted bacterial root for the ToL (in scenario (b)) is still unproven, so that the current consensus can be traced back to the prejudice of Aristotle’s Great Chain of Beings, in which simple organisms are ancestors of more complex life forms. Indeed, during early evolution, there might have been many independently arising lineages, both before and along LUCA, none of them having left extant descendants. The major bottlenecks that occurred as a result of catastrophic events in Earth’s history (e.g., meteorite impacts or snowball Earth periods) might explain why we only have three domains of Life nowadays. Furthermore, extant lineages coalesce to a LUCA that was not necessarily simple and located at the base of the ToL. Instead, it probably lived much later and was more complex than generally acknowledged. [less ▲]

Belgium, like many European Countries, has a serious challenge in the housing sector. The Federal planning bureau estimates the increase of the population by one million inhabitants by 2030, which represent 600,000 additional family requiring accesses to new housing facilities. There is a significant housing shortage for individual, single parent families, seniors and students. Population ageing (mainly due to increase life expectancy) combined with a constant grow rate of individuals living in collective households, leads to a substantial increase of demand of collective households. Furthermore, the stringent European performance environmental regulations for the building sector require that by 2020, all new construction are zero or nearly zero energy, (equivalent to 15 kWh/m2/year), with 60% efficient on-site coverage by renewable energy. The shortage of vacant land and the increasing energy performance requirements is pushing the idea of urban densification and zero energy construction households. [less ▲]

Faire l’histoire de l’édition en Belgique à partir de l’apparition du livre imprimé soulève un certain nombre de problèmes en fait de délimitation du domaine et de construction de l’objet. Les plus évidents touchent aux avatars politiques et linguistiques que les territoires formant l’État belge ont connus du XVe siècle à la fin du XXe siècle. D’autres proviennent du rapport de force très inégal qui s’est établi, à partir de la première moitié du XIXe siècle, entre le système de production du livre en Wallonie et à Bruxelles et l’édition française, avec les effets que ce rapport y exercera durablement en termes d’identité culturelle et de rayonnement, de structures de production et de diffusion, mais aussi de créneaux privilégiés. Ces problèmes et d’autres encore – dont témoigne une historiographie volontiers cantonnée à « l’histoire du livre et de l’imprimerie » – méritent d’être réexaminés dans la perspective de la publication imminente d’une Histoire de l’édition en Belgique profilant, du XVe au XXIe siècle, ses principales lignes de faîte. Histoire de l’édition et de ses pratiques – non du livre et de ses techniques. Histoire de l’édition dans toute son extension et à différents niveaux – non de la seule édition littéraire ou lettrée. Histoire d’un espace des possibles ayant su, dans certains secteurs, tirer force et spécificité de contraintes puissamment subies. [less ▲]

Why ask a person to answer a problem item, when you a priori know they won’t be able to solve it? It is a waste of time and resources, and you won’t gain any new information; this is both inefficient and ineffective. In contrast, computerized adaptive testing (CAT) is based on the principle that more information can be gained when one tailors the test towards the level of the person being tested. Computational and statistical techniques from item response theory (IRT) and decision theory are combined to implement a test that can behave interactively during the test process and adapts towards the level of the person being tested.The implementation of such a CAT relies on an iterative sequential algorithm that searches the pool of available items (a so-called item bank) for the optimal item to administer based on the current estimate of the person’s level (and optional external constraints). The subsequent response on this item provides new information to update the person’s proficiency estimate. This selection-responding-updating process continues until specified stop criteria have been reached. The consequence of such an adaptive test administration is that you get an individualized tailored test that is more efficient and more effective. Because you have less of a mismatch between the level of the test and the level of the test taker, there is a lesser burden for the latter and a higher precision for the former, and this with fewer items than a traditional fixed item-set test format. Furthermore, because it is computerized and sequential, test performance can be continuously monitored and reported directly after test completion. Item response models come into play to ensure comparable scores of these individual tailored tests by putting them on the same measurement scale and to precalibrate,the psychometric parameters of the items that are part of the item bank on which the sequential iterative algorithm operates. The workshop intends to tackle issues encountered during the setup of a computerized adaptive test, starting from the design towards the actual delivery of a CAT. [less ▲]

L'approche du jeu vidéo, non sous l’angle de la technique ou de l'étude des joueurs, mais comme un ensemble de pratiques et de phénomènes culturels, donne lieu à un double mouvement : d'une part la reconnaissance d'une culture commune qui fait médiation et d'autre part la création d'écarts de différentes natures entre les acteurs, les discours et les esthétiques : écarts de légitimité entre des pratiques ludiques instituées et d’autres plus périphériques (sur lesquelles se centreront les présentes communications), écarts rhétoriques produits par les joueurs qui se réapproprient les œuvres vidéoludiques pour les détourner, écarts identitaires présents dans les discours des amateurs, qui se définissent par des stratégies de distinction (par rapport aux professionnels, aux artistes, etc.) et écarts posturaux, mobilisés par les différents acteurs de la presse vidéoludique afin de se singulariser – notamment pour permettre une existence économique. Cet ensemble de problématiques seront traitées au sein d’un panel de communications, à travers différentes perspectives disciplinaires : la rhétorique et la sémiotique, la sociologie de la littérature et l’analyse des réseaux, et l’approche communicationnelle inspirée des « cultural studies ».

Interface essentielle entre le joueur et l’univers vidéoludique, l'avatar soulève la question du rapport au corps dans le jeu vidéo. En effet, la fonction d’incarnation permise par l’avatar – et qui est soulignée par l’étymologie même du terme – ajoute à la relation entre le corps et l’esprit du joueur une dimension nouvelle : celle du corps virtuel, qui déploie sa matérialité propre au sein de l’univers fictionnel. Ce corps « autre », dont le joueur prend possession, constitue une des conditions de son « insertion » dans le monde virtuel. Fondée sur une approche communicationnelle et nourri d’un pan de la pensée phénoménologique (à travers, notamment, la Phénoménologie de la perception de Maurice Merleau-Ponty), cette intervention entend questionner la problématique du rapport au corps au sein de l’univers du jeu.

Notre exposé sur la féminisation se centre principalement sur l’acquisition de patterns féminins dans le cadre d’une prise en charge chez les personnes souffrant de dysphorie de genre. Nous discutons de la voix en tant qu’identité de genre et de l’importance pour certaines personnes d’être perçue comme femme. Féminiser la voix est un défi tant les contraintes anatomo- physiologiques peuvent mener la vie dure à nos techniques de prises en charge. La recherche s’attèle à enrichir nos outils techniques pour une rééducation efficace et satisfaisante. A la lumière de la littérature scientifique, nous faisons le point sur les traitements chirurgicaux et orthophoniques, et proposons une prise en charge en 9 étapes. Celle-ci aborde les points suivants:
 Geste vocal sain, soutien respiratoire, hauteur tonale, résonance, courbes intonatives, contrastes intonatifs, volume, débit, articulation, langage et comportements non verbaux. [less ▲]

Digital textbooks, their recent version, completely new in terms of form and presentation, have risen not only numerous economic or sociological, but also educational and pedagogical issues. Should the digital textbook replace the traditional, printed version? Or do we rather speak of a product altogether different, built on novel principles of subject matter exploitation and shaped according to a teaching philosophy that intensifies activism, interactivity, progression and creativity? We attempt to answer the two above mentioned questions by analyzing three FLE textbooks for A1 level learners. [less ▲]

This paper investigates whether conditional accounting conservatism has informational benefits to financial market participants. Using a large sample of French firms over the period 2001-2014, we report that accounting conservatism improves the firm information environment by providing verifiable information. We specifically document that increases in accounting conservatism are associated with more accurate analyst earnings forecasts, less dispersed forecasts and less volatility in forecast revisions. We also provide evidence that increases in firm accounting conservatism lead to subsequent increases in stock market liquidity, tested on the price impact dimension. Overall, our findings are in line with conservatism being useful to financial markets participants such as financial analysts and investors. [less ▲]

On the proposed view, you qualify as an Austrian phenomenologist if and only if: 1. you acknowledge the authority of experience, 2. you think that philosophy needs psychological investigations at its basis, 3. you think that description is prior to explanation, and 4. you think that describing a mental state is analyzing it, that is, gaining a clear and distinct apprehension of its components.

A current research topic, that is developed in this presentation, is the study of disturbance of circadian hormonal cycles and the secretion of melatonin. Traumatic brain injury is associated to hypopituitarism in up to 10-35% of cases, depending on the dynamic tests used to diagnose hypopituitarism (Valdés-Socin & al 2009, Valdés-Socin & al 2015).Melatonin secretion and hormonal rhythms are severely disturbed in acute TBI patients (Seifman & al. Front Neurol 2014).Light is the primary variable that entrains the main circadian clock in the central nervous system. The retinohypothalamic tract generates an overt 24-hour rhythm. These coordinated outputs are conveyed through to the rest of the body via neuroendocrine (ie melatonin and ACTH-cortisol secretion), autonomic (sympathetic and parasympathetic pathways) and behavioral pathways (feeding, locomotor activity, etc).Finally, we will discuss some recent data connecting light pollution and nocturnal human activity with the metabolic syndrome (chronobesity).

This article aims to explore the transition process of informal camps on the French border to a sustainable state, similarly to « ghettoization ». I observe this issue as a result of a securitizationprocess. I started from the assumption that the ethical and cultural dimensions have particular relevance in this process. This issue requires a transversal analysis, of policies and speeches of actors at local, national and international levels. This is a question of integration policies at the local level more than a question of national or European immigration models. I aim to highlight the local the local level relevance, where the integration is primarily implemented, and therefore local and regional context should matter as much as the national model for the analysis of integration (Martiniello, 2013). In Calais, due to the lack of local immigration policies the civilian population has been pushed to react, they started to build temporary camps, this initiative increased the social exclusion. The civil associations gained more relevance and followers by Facebook, what changes the engagement that pass from local to transnational. In Calais the migratory flow and the informal camps called jungles are known since 1999, until May 2014 these camps around the city center possessed temporary vocation, and were destroyed and rebuilt daily. Therefore, this is also a matter of security speeches. The definition of the context as a crisis situation made possible an agreement between the associations and the government, that amidthe destruction of small camps and concentrated all refugees in a single area, 6.1 kilometers from the city. The political decisions concerning the space occupied by these individuals aimed to make them invisible, placing them far from the city and limiting their access to city services, which by consequence led to the construction of a ghetto. When a situation is defined as a crisis, it passes immediately to the state security sphere, where atypical actions, (as border militarization, mass expulsions, police repression), can be employed to protect the «political community» and eliminate the source of the crisis. This means that in a context defined as a crisis, temporality gains an important dimension, as evokes short term solutions, mobilizing more efforts in building urgency camps than in the areas related to integration. On the other hand the temporary camps, while urgent measures will endure and be normalised, becoming durable spaces of exclusion. The originality of this proposal is to discuss how local policy decisions and non-state actors worked together with a system of temporary camps for the implementation of a complex, semi-permanent exclusion system. This is a matter of contextual perception as a crisis situation, which is designed by production of speeches, and will determine the nature and timeliness of actions and political elaborations. The idea of the refugee crisis is then mobilized to justify emergency actions and security policies; such as closing borders, construction and maintenance of camps as an emergency response. [less ▲]

Ma recherche doctorale vise à réaliser une étude chronologique et historique de la mora debitoris, depuis son apparition en droit romain jusqu’à nos jours. Il fallait dès lors déterminer les contours de la mora debitoris en droit romain: ses modes de déclenchement, ses effets, son utilité et étudier l’évolution du concept lors des époques successives. Une question principale a balisé mes recherches: celle de la démarcation entre le retard du débiteur et la faute du débiteur: en effet, le droit romain a toujours été clair: à partir du moment où il est en retard, le débiteur du droit romain répond d’une responsabilité absolue (il répondra de la perte de l’objet de l’obligation qui est survenue après la mora même si l’objet disparait à cause d’un cas fortuit). Son obligation devient en effet perpétuelle: le débiteur reste tenu alors même que son obligation devient techniquement irréalisable. On constate cependant que le droit positif aborde les choses différemment: même si la règle de base reste la même (le débiteur retardataire est tenu même des cas fortuits), il est aujourd’hui possible pour le débiteur en mora de se libérer de son obligation alors même qu’il est en demeure, en prouvant que la chose aurait péri de la même manière si elle avait été remise à temps au créancier (exemples: art. 1302 C. Napoléon et art. 103 C.O.S) Le droit positif exige donc qu’il existe un lien de causalité entre le retard du débiteur et la disparition de l’objet afin que le débiteur retardataire ne soit tenu pour responsable. Cependant, malgré ce changement, la demeure persiste comme une institution propre. Les propositions d’uniformisation du droit civil au niveau européen voire même international vont cependant encore plus loin: le droit européen actuel désire unifier le droit des contrats (et plus particulièrement, le droit de la vente). Sous l'impulsion de cette démarche, on remarque que la séparation traditionnelle opérée dans les codes civils européens entre mora, impossibilité d'exécution et exécution fautive ou inexécution tend à disparaître au sein tentatives d’uniformisation du droit européen les plus récentes (parmi lesquelles le DCFR, dans lequel la notion de mora disparait pour se fondre dans celle de « non performance » (exemple: art. III. – 1:102: Definitions (3)), alors que les principes UNIDROIT de 1994 et les EPL (European Principles of Contract Law), également connus sous le nom de projet Lando (commission on european contract law, commissionnés par l’Union européenne), adoptent la voie médiane du nachtfrist, une option médiane permettant de prendre en compte le retard du débiteur : (art. 326 BGB) : le nachfrist permet de donner une extension automatique du temps imparti pour exécuter les contrats commerciaux. Bien que cette extension soit obligatoire en Allemagne, elle est laissée à la discrétion des parties dans les systèmes internationaux qui l’ont adoptée.) En définitive, il convient donc de se demander si l’évolution proposée par le droit européen est intéressante: peut-on effectivement se passer de la notion millénaire de demeure du débiteur, pourtant présente dans la plupart des Codes Civils européens. Quels avantages la mora procure-t-elle par rapport au droit de l’inexécution ? De surcroit, la sécurité juridique est-elle alors garantie par l’évolution que connait le principe ? Voici les questions qui ont jalonné mes recherches. [less ▲]

Human Chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) is a complex glycoprotein with several bioactive forms. These five variants comprise placental forms (hyperglycosilated hCG is the first form, then after 10 weeks of pregnancy total hCG takes over), cancer promoter forms (hCGb, hyperglycosilated hCGb), and a pituitary form (sulfated hCG). Current routine laboratory tests do not discriminate between these multiple variants of hCG. Low persistent detectable levels of hCG may be associated with various benign and malignant conditions, such as quiescent gestational trophoblastic disease, raised pituitary hCG, or false positive elevation caused by circulating heterophilic antibodies. Clinico-biological discussion are mandatory to avoid erroneous diagnosis and treatment.In this review we summarize and discuss the different causes of false positive hCG assay. We suggest that current gynecological protocols for the diagnosis and treatment of trophoblastic disease should consider the inclusion of hCG test in urine and/or a test for heterophilic antibodies, when appropriate to avoid unnecessary studies and treatment.

Our studies have demonstrated that the thymus programs central self-tolerance to neuroendocrine functions through transcription of neuroendocrine-related genes in thymic epithelial cells (TECs). However, thymic neuroendocrine precursors are not secreted but processed as the source of neuroendocrine self-antigens that are presented by thymic proteins of the major histocompatibility complex (MHC). This process, highly specific of the thymus, has allowed an integrated and harmonious coevolution of the neuroendocrine and immune systems when recombination-activating genes and the subsequent adaptive immune response have emerged in cartilaginous fishes some 450-500 millions years ago. All the members of the insulin gene family are expressed in murine TECs under the control of AutoImmune Regulator (AIRE) according a precise hierarchy: Igf2 >Igf1>Ins2>Ins1. Igf2 transcription is defective in TECs of autoimmune diabetes-prone BB rats, and tolerance to insulin is severely impaired in Igf2-/- mice as well as in Igf2-loxP/Foxn1-cre mice with Igf2 deletion targeted in TECs. In addition, the diabetogenic coxsackievirus B4 (CV-B4) is able to persistently infect human and murine TECs and to inhibit Igf2 transcription and IGF-2 synthesis in a murine medullary TEC line (coolaboration with D. Hober, Laboratory of Virology, CHRU and University of Lille 2, France). These studies show that: 1° IGF-2 is the dominant tolerogenic precursor of the family and mediates cross-tolerance to insulin; 2° a thymus dysfunction plays a crucial role in the development of the diabetogenic autoimmune response; and 3° a thymic infection by CV-B4 is implicated in type 1 diabetes (T1D) pathogenesis. Most probably due to its very low level of expression in the thymus, the protein insulin is highly immunogenic and is the primary autoantigen tackled in T1D. On the basis of the tolerogenic properties of IGF-2, we are currently working on the development of a negative/tolerogenic self-vaccine against T1D. [less ▲]

En 1972, L’Université de Liège inaugure STARESO: une station pour les recherches sous-marines et océanographiques. Posée sur la presqu’île de La Revellata, la station accueille depuis plus de 40 ans, des scientifiques de notre Université et du monde entier. La Méditerranée est considérée comme un mini océan, modèle pour comprendre l’océan mondial. Elle abrite une très grande biodiversité terrestre et marine mais c’est aussi une des mers les plus touristique au monde, zone subissant la littoralisation, la surpêche, la pollution... Les indices pour la détection de la pollution et pour la gestion des milieux marins permettent de visualiser, de montrer de manière synthétique et rapide, l’état des écosystèmes. A partir de STARESO, zone encore protégée de l’activité humaine, des indices définissant l’état des écosystèmes (DCE), des indices paysagers (qualité et valeur patrimoniale), des indices de pollution (teneur en éléments traces) et de colonisation par des espèces envahissantes ont été mis au point, validés scientifiquement et proposés aux gestionnaires du milieu marin. Après une description du site d’étude, du contexte écologique, cet exposé présente ces indices, les limites et les champs d’application en milieu marin. [less ▲]

Cette présentation aura pour but de proposer quelques pistes de réflexion autour de l’historiographie de la bande dessinée, que l’on envisagera de facto comme plurielle. Plus particulièrement, il s’agira de se pencher sur les façons dont les auteurs eux-mêmes participent à l’écriture de cette histoire dans la diversité de leurs pratiques. Alors que la bande dessinée pourrait être décrite comme un « art sans mémoire » (Groensteen, 2006), les différentes modalités de son inscription dans le temps et de la transmission de son passé constituent aujourd’hui une des questions cruciales de la recheche en bande dessinée. Prolongeant cet intérêt et en le confrontant à la perspective littéraire de L’Histoire littéraire des écrivains (Debaene, et al., 2013), cette présentation suggère que regarder à l’histoire et la mémoire de la bande dessinée telle qu’elle est transmise, véhiculée, réinventée ou rejetée par ses auteurs constitue un changement de perspective qui nous invite à prendre acte de la pluralité des histoires du médium.
