La conférence de Nadja Maillard explore les liens étroits qu’entretiennent la littérature et l’architecture ; elle les exemplifie à travers l’analyse de quelques romans modèles qui, telles des maquettes, opèrent comme des réductions d’un monde. De fait, dans un échange continu, à des degrés divers de connivence, écriture et architecture recourent lʼune à lʼautre pour ... Read more about "Building Stories"

Abstract: The abundant occurrence of faults and failures in sensors for environmental process monitoring is frequently cited as a major challenge for process monitoring and control of environmental systems. Despite the wide recognition of this challenge, little is known about the cause-and-effect relationships between sensor wear-and-tear (e.g., salt deposition, fouling) and the appearance of fault ...

Extensions of the hypercube queuing model to analyze emergency services systems inspired by practical applications
Emergency Service Systems (ESS), such as police, fire, and emergency medical services, have been modeled and studied since long ago. Hypercube queuing models have been proposed and applied to analyze such systems with users in queues and servers spatially distributed over a region. The work of our research group in this area has been oriented ... Read more about "Extensions of the hypercube queuing model to analyze emergency services systems inspired by practical applications"

EESS talk on "Catchment storage, chemical dynamics, and hydrological response, on timescales from minutes to months"
Abstract: Landscapes are characterized by preferential flow and pervasive heterogeneity on all scales. They therefore store and transmit water and solutes over a wide spectrum of time scales, with important implications for contaminant transport, weathering rates, and stream chemistry. Catchment transit time distributions are nonstationary, reflecting fluctuations in precipitation forcing, heterogeneity in catchments themselves, and ...
