The investigation of computational models of argument is a rich and fascinating interdisciplinary research field with two ultimate aims: the theoretical goal of understanding argumentation as a cognitive phenomenon by modeling it in computer programs, and the practical goal of supporting the development of computer-based systems able to engage in argumentation-related activities with human users or among themselves.
Digital human modeling (DHM) is an active field of research directed towards the goal of creating detailed digital models of the human body and its functions, as well as assessment methods for evaluating human interaction with products and production systems. These have many applications in ergonomics, design and engineering, in fields as diverse as the automotive industry and medicine.
The past twenty years have seen a number of breakthroughs in astrophysics and cosmology, some of which have been awarded Nobel prizes. These physics triumphs highlight the fact that while students need a solid grounding in the fundamentals of astrophysics and cosmology, sight of the basics of the fundamental interactions in physics must not be lost.
The scope of the Journal on Satisfiability, Boolean Modeling and Computation (JSAT) is propositional reasoning, modeling, and computation. The Satisfiability discipline is a central focus of JSAT. We welcome all sorts of contributions to this theme but also encourage authors to submit papers on related topics as Computational Logic, Constraint Programming, Satisfiability Modulo Theories, Quantified Boolean Logic, Pseudo Bool
What will robots be like ten, twenty and more years from now? What will they be able to accomplish? How will human–robot relationships have advanced? What place in society will be occupied by robots? These are just some of the questions which will be debated in the pages of this new publication – the Journal of Future Robot Life.
Journal of Alzheimer's Disease Reports is an Open Access international multidisciplinary journal to facilitate progress in understanding the etiology, pathogenesis, epidemiology, genetics, behavior, treatment and psychology of Alzheimer's disease. The journal publishes research reports, reviews, short communications, hypotheses, and case reports. The journal is dedicated to providing an open forum for original research that will exped
The aim of this thesis is to improve the environmental life cycle assessment methodology for buildings by incorporating damage to the health of occupants of emissions from building materials and local traffic. It also intends to determine the overall impact reduction by building environmentally improved dwellings. This reduction is referred to as the so-called factor X for dwellings. a methodology has been developed to calculate damages to human ...
Texel inlet, the largest inlet in the Dutch Wadden Sea, has undergone drastic changes in the morphology of its back-barrier basin, ebb-tidal delta and adjacent coastlines after the closure of the Zuiderzee (1926-1932). As a result large sand losses were observed along the adjacent coastlines and still until today the maintenance of this part of the coast is the most intensive of the entire Dutch coast. The processes controlling the sediment ...
'As an engineer, I have never seen such a good book on the subject. Apart of some general methods and examples, it contains such jewels as Cassandra information, with very important analysis.' Efim A. Galperin, Honorary Professor of Applied Mathematics and Global Optimization, Universite du Quebec a Montreal, Canada.Open Design refers to a stakeholder-oriented approach in Architecture, Urban Planning, and Project Management, as develo
In the research Model Predictive Control on Open Water Systems, the relatively new control methodology Model Predictive Control is configured for application of water quantity control on open water systems, especially on irrigation canals and large drainage systems. The methodology applies an internal model of the open water system, by which optimal control actions are calculated over a prediction horizon. As internal model, two simplified ...
Environmental issues today have increased in complexity and involve all community sectors. Additionally, they are now more related to products and services. Many customers impose environmental requirements to their suppliers. Future environmental work therefore requires a structured way of working in co-operation with many parties. ISO 14000 series is a set of standards with the aim, through well proven and internationally recognized methods,
