AVOCAAD - A First Step Towards Distance Learning?
In the industrial world knowledge is developed very fast. As most countries are depending on employees with a high level of knowledge and skills the term ?Life Long Learning? has been formulated and the concept is more and more accepted. Institutions of higher education are more and more involved in creating supplementary education more independent of time and place. Distance learning was originally carried out by ordinary mail, which was slow but might then have been the only solution for peopl

Performative architecture as a guideline for transformation: Defense Line of Amsterdam
Performance as an architectural design paradigm has been emerging during the recent years. We have developed an understanding that we formalized as a taxonomy for performative architecture that considers performance from three points of view: health, safety and security performance; functional and efficiency performance; and psychological, social, cultural, and esthetic performance. This paper focuses on a design project that explores these ideas as a performative architecture proposal. The proj

Une liberté qui change tout ? Sartre et les moments philosophiques du siècle

Des premiers romans aux ouvrages biographiques consacrés aux écrivains, en passant par les deux grands moments philosophiques de la guerre et des années soixante, Sartre décline de manière chaque fois singulière une même conception de la liberté qui tire toute son originalité d’une expérience originelle: celle de l’écrivain et de la littérature. De cette expérience découlent des conséquences philosophiques, morales, pratiques et politiques qui comportent à la fois des lim

Freefall
Stiglitz lays out not only the course of the financial crisis which began in 2007, but its underlying causes, and shows why much more radical reforms are needed than are currently being contemplated if we are to avoid similar 'systemic' crises in the future. Showing why the bailout has been only marginally effective and how it could have been much more so, and outlines the enormous opportunity - not yet taken - to design a new global financial architecture.

The Grid Shared Desktop for CSCL
The Grid Shared Desktop (GSD) is a collaborative environment that provides a multidimensional humans-to-machine-to-humans interface by the means of multiples cleverly intricated desktops. The GSD is a platform independent solution that benefits of the intrinsic advantages of the Grid technology such as scalability and security. In order to verify that our GSD solution meets CSCL requirements, we have conducted experiments in the context of the ELeGI project. As part of the project use cases, the
