Chemical reactions at gas-solid interfaces are of great importance in many heterogeneous processes such as catalysis, corrosion, and material fabrication. In this talk, dynamics of several prototypical surface processes, including dissociative chemisorption, Eley-Rideal reactions, and desorption, are explored theoretically on metal surfaces. Classical trajectories either on analytical potential energy surfaces or with forces calculated on ...

Abstract Diagnosis and treatment methods based on big genomic data are becoming widespread as the cost of genome sequencing decreases gradually. In this context, disease-gene association studies are of great importance. The genomic data is very sensitive when compared to other data types and contains information about the individual and his / her relatives. Many ...

Abstract In mix networks, communication anonymity is achieved by relaying messages through multiple routers called mixes, where each mix shuffles messages independently. Mix networks were originally set up as fixed sequences of mixes, called cascades. Later, more flexible configurations were proposed, such as free routes, where routes are not fixed and can be any sequence ... Read more about "Multiparty Routing: Secure Routing for Mixnets"

Abstract The introduction of computational resources at the network edge allows us to offload computation from clients and/or servers, thereby reducing response latency, backbone bandwidth, and computational requirements on clients. More fundamentally, edge-computing moves us from a Client-Server model to a Client-Edge-Server model. While this is an attractive paradigm for many applications, it raises the ...

Crystal Structure Prediction (CSP) methods were developed on the assumption that an organic molecule would crystallize in its most stable crystal structure. Even implementing this approach is a challenge to computational chemistry methods,[1] as shown by the Cambridge Crystallographic Data Centre’s blind tests.[2] Polymorphism adds additional challenges, as this is usually a kinetic phenomenon with ...
