The goal of this paper is to identify the respective influence of different characteristics of urban patterns on urban flooding. A set of 2,290 alternate urban patterns was generated randomly using an urban generator tool providing the geometry of buildings and their relative location to the ground, over a square area of 1 km². Steady 2-D hydraulic computations were performed for these 2,290 different urban patterns with identical hydraulic boundary conditions. The computational time was reduced by using an anisotropic porosity model. This model uses relatively coarse computational cells; but preserves information from the detailed topographic data through the use of porosity parameters. Based on the computed maps of waterdepths for the 2,290 urban patterns, a sensitivity analysis based on a multiple linear regression was performed to outline the most influential urban characteristics.

Notre objectif est de discuter des diagnostics du fonctionnement psychologique pervers et de la personnalité psychopathique. Si les versions récentes du DSM (IV et 5) ignorent ces diagnostics, la pratique clinique suggère de conserver ces deux entités présentant une finesse psychopathologique plus grande et un pouvoir discriminatif plus important que la personnalité antisociale. Nous souhaitons interroger les dimensions intrinsèquement adaptatives de ces deux entités, mais aussi relever leurs différences sur le continuum de l’adaptation. Nous chercherons, en effet, à démontrer que le principe d'adaptation est une dimension centrale et commune aux deux entités, mais qui « se joue » de façons différentes pour chacune. Le pervers est hyper-adapté à son interlocuteur tout en présentant des moments paradoxaux d'inadaptation. Le psychopathe, avec sa faculté de chosification de l'alter ego et ses compétences émotionnelles paradoxales, présente une adaptation plus solitaire. Dans une perspective inspirée des paradigmes éthologique et phénoménologique, nous tenterons de cerner les différences essentielles entre ces deux modes d’être-au-monde. [less ▲]

In a world where the electricity prices become more and more volatile, notably due to renewable energies, the industry is suffering from cost variations never seen before, especially when electro-intensive. Nevertheless, the plants can significantly reduce this impact: some electro-intensive factories could shift their production to time periods where the electricity is cheaper, resulting in large savings. At the same time, the grid operator can remunerate this consumption adaptation as a flexibility service. Our research goal is to optimise the operations of a factory around this flexibility. We compute a production plan that adapts to price forecasts, but also flexibility levers that adjust this plan to react to unexpected price changes. We propose the unifying concept of reservoir to provide sufficiently good models for the plant's processes. Nevertheless, this methodology implies to have frequent production plan changes, which directly impacts the workers, as they may be asked to follow barely predictable schedules. This has a significant detrimental effect on their quality of life. As a consequence, the human aspect of flexibility must also be considered: we seek for production plans that consider both workforce and energy costs, and we then assign workers to work shifts while ensuring their well-being. This HR orientation is the most innovative contribution of this research project. [less ▲]

What strategies do migrants living in European cities use to challenge inequalities in access to healthcare, participation in the labor market and the creation of social support networks? The papers in this panel aim to respond to this question by drawing from transnational and intersectional approaches conceptualizing inequalities as sets of relationships between people and broader structures in which interactions generate better opportunity for some more than for others (Tilly, 2000). Panel participants consider that these interactions and the benefits that can be obtained through migration are affected by various social categories such as gender, class, sexual identity, transnational connections, and citizenship. Intersectional approaches allow to examine how these axes of inequality (Crenshaw, 1989; Anthias, 2001) simultaneously affect migration outcomes and also how they operate differently according to the geographical space in which they develop: origin and host societies as well as transnationally. Nonetheless, the papers presented in this panel will also emphasize migrants’ agency to resist or conform to the inequalities they face. Overall, this panel aims to contribute to the study of migration and inequality at the conceptual and methodological levels. At the theoretical level, the panel will build on new debates on the reproduction of intersectional inequalities in transnational settings (Faist, 2016, Amelina, 2017). At the methodological level, all paper presenters have use multi-sited ethnographic methods (working in cities such as Madrid, London, Milan, Brussels and Frankfurt) and will therefore use the panel as an opportunity to discuss the strengths and weaknesses of such method.

De nombreux programmes thérapeutiques recommandent d’orienter la thérapie sur la reconnaissance du trouble ou de la maladie. Nous évoquerons cette problématique dans le cadre de la psychiatrie légale (particulièrement avec des patients présentant un diagnostic de schizophrénie et ayant commis des faits de délinquance sexuelle). Avoir pour objectif de réduire l’anosognosie pose la question des représentations du trouble et de la connaissance de ces phénomènes complexes. La distinction des perspectives en première et troisième personnes est un apport récent et décisif de la phénoménologie à la psychologie clinique et à la psychopathologie (Parnas, Sass & Zahavi, 2012). La perspective en troisième personne consiste en l’attribution, depuis une position externe, de signes cliniques repérés indépendamment du ressenti exprimé par le patient. L’exemple typique de ces signes est le délire et l’hallucination du schizophrène. Ces symptômes cristallisent précisément les difficultés qu’éprouve le sujet à se reconnaitre affecté du trouble. La perspective en première personne concentre, quant à elle, son attention sur l’expérience subjective exprimée par le patient. Si l’on reprend le cas de la schizophrénie, ce sont la « perte de l’évidence naturelle » des choses ou un « sentiment de diminution du soi » qui sont verbalisés. Ce pas de côté de la vision omnisciente du médical, assumant une remise en cause du pouvoir de domination qu’entraine la perspective en troisième personne, se révèle être un outil psychothérapeutique pertinent. Il désacralise le problème de l’anosognosie et ouvre la voie à une perspective intersubjective, à une « co-reconnaissance ». [less ▲]

During service encounters, customer contact employees often need to deliver bad news: unexpected information contrary to the customer’s wellbeing. For example, technicians regularly tell customers that none of the data on their computer hard drive can be retrieved, veterinarians often inform owners that a beloved pet has cancer and cannot be cured, and airline staff regularly tell travelers that their flights have been cancelled due to bad weather. For some customer-contact employees, delivering bad news is an unavoidable, delicate, and emotionally-charged task that occurs regularly. Disclosing bad news can be highly stressful and perhaps detrimental for (1) customers, (2) customer- contact employees, and (3) service firms in general. Accordingly, it is crucial for service organizations to better understand bad news encounters (i.e., situations during which customer contact employees must deliver negative information) to better equip their managers and employees to deliver such news to customers. The topic of how to best deliver bad news has been broached in various disciplines, including the medical literature (e.g., Baile et al. 2000, 2002; Rosenbaum et al. 2004), the management literature (e.g., Bies 2013; Kothari, Shu, and Wysocki 2009), and the sociology literature (e.g., Clark and LaBeff 1986). These literatures have (1) examined the attitudes and emotions of the discloser of extreme bad news in very specific contexts, (2) identified the tactics used by disclosers, and (3) developed protocols for delivering extremely negative information. Surprisingly, studies of bad news delivered by contact employees are scarce in service research. Service failure and service recovery have received much attention, but this literature has two major gaps when it comes to understanding the delivery of negative information. First, service recovery research generally skips over the initial part of the process where employees first communicate bad news to customers, and instead focuses primarily on the process involved to resolve the situation. Second, there are many situations in which employees must deliver negative information to customers where it is clear that a service failure has not occurred (e.g., informing a customer that his 30-year old dishwasher is beyond repair). We use the critical incident technique (CIT) (Flanagan 1954; Gremler 2004) to analyze 200 incidents where service employees from a wide range of service sectors had to deliver bad news to a customer.
