DynaFit - (Bio)Chemical Kinetics and Equilibria
The freely available software package uses a nonlinear least-squares regression analysis to fit chemical kinetic, enzyme kinetic, or ligand-receptor binding data to a user-defined molecular mechanism represented symbolically by a set of chemical equations. Dynafit is available for Microsoft Windows XP or 2000.

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. Joseph Stiglitz was Chief Economist at

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

Warning: Physics Envy May be Hazardous to Your Wealth
In this talk Andrew Lo addresses the problem of finding the right level of abstraction with which to think about economic phenomena. He compares economics to physics, with some surprising results.

For at least several decades economics theorists have assumed that the highest level of abstraction is the best. Lo argues

Collaboration and Problem Solving in Distributed Collaborative Learning
Ethnomethodology and Conversation Analysis are utilised as resources for analysing distributed collaborative learning. Thematically we are interested in how a group of students manage their task, how they keep a joint focus, and how technology features in their activity. We present and analyse extracts of data from a group collaborating in a groupware system called TeamWave Workplace. We conclude that in collaborative problem solving the interpretation of the task and the problem solving process

From texture to volume: an investigation in quasi-crystalline systems
The relation between texture, pattern and massing is a fundamental question in architecture. Classical architecture, as Leon Battista Alberti states in ?De re aedificatoria? (Book VI, Chapter 2), is developed through massing and structure first; texture is added afterwards to give the bold massing and structure beauty. Only the ornamentation adds pulcritudo to the raw structure and massing. Rather than starting with a volume and applying texture afterwards, the Digital Girih project started with
