Science-fiction is becoming science-fact as emerging technologies are increasingly influencing our lives. We are experiencing progress like never before and it is already evident that our civilisation will change so much that its rules and technologies will be incomprehensible to the previous generation. The lecture "Exponential Ethics" aims to create awareness for positive and not-so-positive ... Read more about "Exponential Ethics"

Hybrid simulation combining physical and numerical simulations provides a cost-effective means to experimentally examine the performance of large-scale structural systems under extreme loading events. It can be particularly beneficial to investigate the behavior of large scale structures subjected to seismic loads through collapse given that shake table tests pose significant risk to support a collapsing ...

The efficient interconversion of electrical and chemical energy requires catalysts capable of accelerating complex multi-electron reactions at electrified interfaces. These reactions can be carried out at the metallic surface sites of heterogeneous electrocatalysts or via redox mediation at molecular electrocatalysts. Molecular catalysts yield readily to synthetic alteration of their redox properties and secondary coordination sphere, ...

  18:00 Project Room Archizoom, bâtiment SG

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"

Reacting flow instabilities in gas turbine and aeroengine combustion chambers must be understood and controlled in order to ensure safe and reliable operation and to increase the systems performances. The research presented in this talk is based on experiments (e.g. planar laser induced fluorescence, particle image velocimetry, acoustic piezosensors), large eddy simulations and low order ...

Abstract This talk presents a detailed and up-to-date security analysis of the voting software used in upcoming Brazilian elections by more than 140 million voters. It is mainly based on results obtained recently in a restricted hacking challenge organized by the Superior Electoral Court (SEC), the national electoral authority. During the event, multiple serious vulnerabilities ... Read more about "Return of the Insecure Brazilian Voting Machines"

The Convention will be the peak event of the semester, offering labs and companies the possibility to explain to students the technologies they are using and developing. The event aims to give students first hand insights about current energy applications in research and industry and introducing them to the future they might expect in the ...

My research interests are in understanding the molecular basis of genome maintenance. Our genetic information is constantly protected against endogenous and exogenous attack by enzymatic maintenance that repairs mutations and prevents duplication or deletion events. On a biomedical level, defects in these pathways are frequently associated with cancer. I focus on protein complexes at the ...

  18:15-21:00 Octanis Microverse

At Octanis, we develop pragmatic, open source and low cost solutions to practical problems. Currently, we are working on developing digital nestboxes for barn owls and a rover that takes measurements of the snow surface in Antarctica. We share experiences and tools, and make rapid incremental progress while embracing failure. Above all, we accept everyone ... Read more about "Maker-Night @ Octanis"

Parkinson’s disease (PD) is the most common movement disorder characterized by the progressive loss of dopaminergic cells in the substantia nigra pars compacta. Accumulating evidence indicates that the interactions between genetic and environmental factors cause PD. Although several monogenic mutations linked to rare familial PD have been identified, other genetic determinants causative for sporadic PD, ...

Comment l’échelle d’observation d’un phénomène peut-elle influencer la recherche? À quelles conditions est-il possible de passer d’une échelle à une autre? Ce passage, que l’on métaphorise souvent en termes de distance, est-il discontinu ou continu? Quel rôle joue l’instrumentation, la modélisation et les outils numériques dans ces divers niveaux d’analyse? Les mêmes questions se posent ...
