Roots, the belowground part of plants, play a major role in plant development. Their study in field conditions is important to identify suitable soil management practices for suitable crop production but roots are hidden by soil and their study is therefore difficult. Estimation of root system development is often based on the soil coring method which allows repeated measurements during the growing season in the field as well as in different soil horizons. However, this method is limited due to the time needed to extract roots from soil cores and to manually sort them from crop residues before quantification. To avoid this tedious sorting step and remove operator subjectivity, a faster sorting method was developed. Near infrared hyperspectral imaging (NIR-HIS) was tested as a rapid method to quantify the amount of roots in soil samples. [less ▲]

Il n’est en philosophie d’héritage que gagné. Et en m’installant dans cette ambigüité propre au savoir philosophique, j’examine, dans ce texte, un développement peu étudié de la pensée sartrienne : sa théorie du « circuit de l’ipséité » de la conscience. Quant à mon objectif, il s’agira de faire le point sur le processus de maturation intellectuelle à l’issue duquel Sartre conçut l’ipséité comme un circuit. Ainsi je mets en évidence que certaines des réflexions de Heidegger, Bergson et Mauss, sur la notion d’identité personnelle ont constitué les héritages philosophiques mobilisés et transformés par la théorie sartrienne de l’ipséité.

This paper proposes a novel control scheme for frequency support among asynchronous AC areas through HVDC grids. It is based on local controllers, each acting on a voltage source converter, using locally available measurements only, and supporting frequency of the adjacent AC area after a significant disturbance. The controller is combined with the existing DC voltage droop technique and is inspired of Model Predictive Control, taking into account various constraints. The coordination of the proposed control scheme with the existing secondary frequency control of an AC area is also discussed. Examples obtained from a test system with a five-terminal DC network connecting two asynchronous areas demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed control scheme. [less ▲]

A real-time control scheme is proposed to correct undesired voltages in distribution networks by adjusting the reactive powers produced by Dispersed Generation Units (DGUs). This is performed at two levels: locally, in DGU controllers, and centrally by a supervisory controller acting on some of the DGUs only. The centralized, discrete controller solves a multi-time-step constrained optimization inspired of Model Predictive Control. Unacceptable voltage deviations are partially but rapidly corrected by the local controls. Further but slower corrections are applied by the upper level, taking advantage of the coordination between DGUs. This hybrid control is of practical interest where the deployment of the upper level control is not feasible or affordable over all DGUs. The proposed method effectiveness is demonstrated on a 75-bus test system. [less ▲]

Cyber-security requires not only technical preparations but also organizational practices that reduce the likelihood and severity of damage to the organization. Although user compliance to security policies has been examined in prior literature, user behaviour is only one facet of an organization’s cyber-security; the actions of the IT staff, crisis team, and the management are just as critical. Consequently, organizational practices in cyber-security are not understood very well. To address this gap, this research applied the concept of mindfulness, which has recently received attention also in the IT field. We collected data from a revelatory case – that of a government agency that was targeted by a large-scale cyber-attack – and applied the concept of mindfulness in analyzing the data. Our analysis uncovered a number of mindful practices related to cyber-security. These practices can serve as a building block to theorize on the activities to be taken by IT workers in promoting cyber-security. Our paper also suggests avenues for further research in the emerging topic, for instance, through the concept of cyber-security capability. [less ▲]

Background: Injury to children in Europe, resulting in both death and disability, constitutes a significant burden on individuals, families and society. Inequalities between high and low-income countries are growing. The World Health Organisation Health 2020 strategy calls for inter-sectoral collaboration to address injury in Europe and advocates the whole of government and whole of society approaches to wicked problems. In this study we explore which sectors (e.g. health, transport, education) are relevant for four domains of child safety (intentional injury, water, road and home safety). Methods: We used the organigraph methodology, originally developed to demonstrate how organizations work, to describe the governance of child safety interventions. Members of the European Child Safety Alliance, working in the field of child safety in 24 European countries, drew organigraphs of evidence-based interventions. They included the different actors involved and the processes between them. We analyzed the organigraphs by counting the actors presented and categorizing them into sectors using a pre-defined analysis framework. Results: We received 44 organigraphs from participants in 24 countries. Twenty-seven sectors were identified across the four domains. Nine of the 27 identified sectors were classified as ‘core sectors’ (education, health, home affairs, justice, media, recreation, research, social/welfare services and consumers). Conclusions: This study reveals the multi-sectoral nature of child safety in practice. It provides information for stakeholders working in child safety to help them implement inter-sectoral child safety interventions taking a whole-of-government and whole-of-society approach to health governance.

Nowadays, city local governments focus their strategic vision on the development of the urban sustainability. For this, they develop drivers, strategies, structures on green local improvements. To be sustainable, cities reinforce actions and plans on resource management, mobility, climate, building and public spaces. In order to be sustainable and smart, challenges are set to ensure successful implementation of sustainable mobility strategies through the development of appropriate policies, actions, decisions and controls. The development of sustainable mobility strategy requires the involvement of strategic actors, infrastructures, funding and socio-demographic parameters. To ensure this, sustainable mobility strategy has to be strengthen by an efficient management control system and a real measurement of institutional factors’ risk. The development of mobility controls ensures homogeneity between behaviours, decisions, objectives and strategies for mobility issues. In order to make the link between control, strategy and sustainability, new researches propose new frameworks and systems. These frameworks reinforce the strategic contribution of values, rules, monitoring and enhancing awareness and interactions. Based on that, the management control framework of Malmi and Brown is more and more associated with the implementation of sustainable strategies. This paper explores the development of sustainable mobility strategies in two Belgian cities (Namur and Leuven). To analyse how cilty local governments implement, control and develop mobility strategies and plans, this paper refers to Malmi and Brown’s model. The research proposes two hypotheses that set the importance of the integration of an adequate sustainable mobility control system and the institutional factors on the design and the use of mobility strategy control. This paper proposes a new conceptual model to support the development of sustainable mobility strategy. For this, the choice of two Belgian cities is made according to similarities (population size, explicit will to develop sustainable mobility strategy, focus on sustainable transport, initiation period of mobility issues’ implementation, number of person in charge of mobility, level of willingness to develop mobility system, focus on car free and strategic mobility challenges) and differences (region, language, regulative factors, normative factors and cognitive factors). To test our conceptual framework, an explorative qualitative case study is done in these two Belgian city local governments. The data collection requires a fieldwork of 12 weeks, 54 internal and external documents, and 20 semi-structured interviews (mobility managers, politicians, sustainability managers, policemen and administrative workers). Results shows differences between the implementation and development of Namur and Leuven. Leuven has an average quality of sustainable mobility control system. Leuven requires developing new adapted indicators to face new city challenges and more effective collaborations between involved departments and actors. The case of Namur shows that its sustainable mobility control system is weak because of the non-adapted indicators to strategy and the weakness of the formal structure of mobility strategy. Results identify different institutional factors that have a significant impact on the development of sustainable mobility strategy; the most relevant are formal regulations, political power, local cultures, support of direct and indirect actors and the sensitiveness on sustainable culture. The proposed conceptual model also highlights if the impact of mobility strategy controls and institutional influences have a weak, medium or strong impact on the development of mobility strategy. Results validate our proposed conceptual model. However, this model has to be tested on other sustainability issues (energy, green building, green housing, green and neutral climate), cities and regions. [less ▲]
