Learning and Adaption in Multi-Agent Systems: First International Workshop, LAMAS 2005, Utrecht, The Netherlands, July 25, 2005, Revised Selected

This ebook constitutes the completely refereed post-proceedings of the 1st foreign Workshop on studying and Adaption in Multi-Agent platforms, LAMAS 2005, held in Utrecht, The Netherlands, in July 2005, as an linked occasion of AAMAS 2005. The thirteen revised papers offered including invited talks have been rigorously reviewed and chosen from the lectures given on the workshop.

Schattendasein: Das unverstandene Leiden Depression

Schattendasein: Anders als bei anderen Krankheiten wagen es depressive Menschen häufig nicht, über ihre Erkrankung zu sprechen. Unterstützung und Austausch finden sie seit einigen Jahren im Internetforum des ''Kompetenznetz melancholy, Suizidalität''. Vier Betroffene und eine Angehörige sichteten nun die Postings des boards, kommentierten sie und verdichteten sie zu einem Ratgeber – fachlich betreut von Ärzten des Kompetenznetzes melancholy.

Handbook of Space Security: Policies, Applications and Programs

House protection includes using house (in specific communique, navigation, earth commentary, and digital intelligence satellites) for army and safeguard reasons in the world and in addition the upkeep of area (in specific the earth orbits) as secure and safe components for carrying out peaceable actions.

Networked Systems: Second International Conference, NETYS 2014, Marrakech, Morocco, May 15-17, 2014. Revised Selected Papers

This e-book constitutes the revised chosen papers of the second one foreign convention on Networked platforms, NETYS 2014, held in Marrakech, Morocco, in may possibly 2014. The 20 complete papers and the 6 brief papers awarded including 2 keynotes have been conscientiously reviewed and chosen from eighty submissions. They deal with significant issues reminiscent of multi-core architectures; concurrent and allotted algorithms; middleware environments; garage clusters; social networks; peer-to-peer networks; sensor networks; instant and cellular networks; in addition to privateness and security features to guard such networked structures and knowledge from assault and abuse.

3, another area that has shown promise and generated interest is that of implantable devices and biosensors. Advances in key areas such as power supply miniaturisation, increased battery duration, reduced energy consumption, and power scavenging are essential to such systems [49]. Micro ElectroMechanical System (MEMS) technology is an area which has offered the prospect of sophisticated sensing using a miniaturised sensor device [50]. Pervasive healthcare systems utilising large scale BSN and WSN technology will allow access to accurate medical information at any time and place, ultimately improving the quality of the service provided.

Replacing these chemicals with a substance that is much less corrosive (for example oxygen and water) would therefore require less bulky packaging [114]. As mentioned earlier, an alternative strategy is the use of acoustic (ultrasound) power transmission into an implantable device, with piezoelectric discs as power transducers [115]. Challenges faced in this case include increasing power storage capability as well as controlling the acoustic beam to achieve maximal efficiency. 5 Wireless Data-Paths, Antenna Design, System Security and Reliability For both wearable and implantable sensors, efficient wireless data-paths and antenna design are essential to their practical deployment.

Field effect transistors with their gate oxide exposed to solution are used to measure ion concentrations as gate surface charges are varied according to solution concentration [82]. These transistors are known as Ion-Sensitive Field Effect Transistors (ISFETs). Enzyme monolayers can be used to further functionalise gates of ISFETS, extending the range of sensing targets. Readouts for ISFETs rely on potentiometric electronics. Advanced electrochemical methods for surface characterisation such as cyclic voltammetry and chronopotentiometry have also been used to detect specific target binding of immobilised nucleotides on gold surfaces.
