The paper shows how political analysts not only have the right to participate in public debates but also have a duty to do so. It also examines what are the conditions of separation between expert attitude and commitment so that this freedom of speech does not degenerate into propaganda. [less ▲]

LBR-5 is a tool for early design stage. Taking into account numerous kinds of constraints – structural, geometrical, etc. – an optimum scantling can quickly been found. In the framework of IMPROVE European project many new modules have been implemented to increase the quality of the optimised scantling. Mainly 6 major changes have been brought: implementation of a sloshing module, a fatigue module, a multi-structure module, a multi-materials module, a life cycle cost module and finally a vibration module. Tests to validate these modules have been carried out on the three ships studied in the IMPROVE project: a LNG, a Chemical Tanker and a ROPAX. [less ▲]

In supersymmetric models extended with an anomalous U(1)H different R-parity violating couplings can yield an unstable neutralino. We show that in this context astrophysical and cosmological constraints on neutralino decaying dark matter forbid bilinear R-parity breaking neutralino decays and lead to a class of purely trilinear R-parity violating scenarios in which the neutralino is stable on cosmological scales. We have found that among the resulting models some of them become suitable to explain the observed anomalies in cosmic-ray electron/positron fluxes. [less ▲]

ur objective is to measure and compare the quality of collaboration in technology-mediated design activities. Our position is to consider collaboration as multidimensional. We present a method to assess quality of collaboration which is composed of seven dimensions concerning communication processes such as grounding, coordination processes, task-related processes, symmetry of individual contributions as well as motivational processes. This method is used in a study aiming to compare the quality of collaboration in architectural design. In this experimental study, design situations vary according to technology-mediation - co-presence with an augmented reality (AR) environment versus distance with AR and visio-conferencing -, and according to number of participants - pairs versus groups of four architects -. Our results show that distinctive dimensions of collaboration are affected by the technology mediation and/or the number of co-designers. We discuss these results with respect to technology affordances such as visibility and group factors. [less ▲]

In this paper we address the issue of governance quality in the microfinance sector in the Economic and Monetary Union of West Africa and try to build an aggregate index for measuring the sustainability of these institutions focusing on the Benin case study. Following the recent literature on corporate governance in the classic bank sector (Louizi, 2006; Marsal & Bouaiss, 2007), some studies show evidence of a strong correlation between the governance quality of microfinance organizations and their performance (Rock et al., 1998; Labie, 2001; Drake & Rhyne, 2002; Mersland & Strøm, 2007). And governance quality increasingly tends to become the biggest challenge faced by most microfinance organizations in EMUWA. Despite the many facets of governance quality, the analysis of the aggregate indexes built using data from Benin shows that governance quality in the whole sector has been deteriorated. All other things being equal, this conclusion tends to reduce the prospects of viability in the sector. [less ▲]

Worldwide different (mostly voluntary) approaches exist to evaluate emissions from construction products. The importance of the relation between construction products and health & environment is highlighted in the mandatory European Construction Products Directive (CPD). One of the objectives of the European Construction Products Directive (CPD) is to harmonize the technical specifications with regard to dangerous substances and construction materials as stated in the Essential Requirement N°3 “Hygiene, health and the environment” (ER3). The Belgian Building Research Institute (BBRI) is involved in the implementation of ER3 by participation in standardisation work on CEN (CEN/TC 351) and EOTA (EOTA PT9) level. This paper presents first results of ongoing BBRI research activities in collaboration with VITO (Flemish Institute for Technological Research) and ULg (Université de Liège) concerning “horizontal evaluation method for implementation of the CPD (HEMICPD)”: http://www.bbri.be/go/hemicpd.
