By Dimitris Gritzalis, Kostantinos Moulinos, John Iliadis, Costas Lambrinoudakis (auth.), Michel Dupuy, Pierre Paradinas (eds.)

Since the early eighties IFIP/Sec has been a massive rendezvous for info know-how researchers and experts serious about all features of IT defense. The explosive progress of the internet is now confronted with the ambitious problem of supplying relied on info. IFIP/Sec’01 is the 1st of this decade (and century) and it'll be dedicated to “Trusted details - the recent Decade problem” This court cases are divided in 11 elements with regards to the convention application. consultation are devoted to applied sciences: safeguard Protocols, shrewdpermanent Card, community safety and Intrusion Detection, relied on systems. Others classes are dedicated to program like eSociety, TTP administration and PKI, safe Workflow atmosphere, safe team Communications, and at the deployment of purposes: possibility administration, safety guidelines andTrusted procedure layout and administration. The yr 2001 is a double anniversary. First, fifteen years in the past, the 1st IFIP/Sec was once held in France (IFIP/Sec’86, Monte-Carlo) and 2001 is additionally the anniversary of clever card expertise. shrewdpermanent playing cards emerged a few 20 years in the past as an innovation and feature now develop into pervasive details units used for hugely allotted safe functions. those playing cards permit thousands of individuals hold a hugely safe machine that may signify them on numerous networks. To finish, we are hoping that the wealthy “menu” of convention papers for this IFIP/Sec convention will supply worthy insights and inspire experts to pursue their paintings in depended on information.

Recent Advances in Composite Materials: In Honor of S.A. by Y. F. Missirlis (auth.), Emmanuel E. Gdoutos, Zaira P.

By Y. F. Missirlis (auth.), Emmanuel E. Gdoutos, Zaira P. Marioli-Riga (eds.)

This booklet includes 31 papers awarded on the symposium on "Recent Advances in Composite fabrics" which used to be geared up in honor of Professor Stephanos A. Paipetis. The symposium happened at Democritus college of Thrace, in Xanthi, Greece on June 12-14, 2003. The booklet is a tribute to Stephanos A. Paipetis, a pioneer of composite fabrics, in attractiveness of his non-stop, unique various and extraordinary contributions for part a century. The ebook includes invited papers written through major specialists within the box. It includes unique contributions about the most modern advancements in composite fabrics. It covers quite a lot of matters together with experimental characterization, analytical modeling and functions of composite fabrics. The papers are prepared within the following six sections: normal options, tension and failure research, mechanical homes, steel matrix composites, structural research and purposes of composite fabrics. the 1st part on common ideas includes seven papers facing composites in the course of the pursuit of the consilience between them, computation and mechatronic automation of multiphysics examine, a concept of anisotropic scattering, wave propagation, multi-material composite wedges, a 3-dimensional finite point research round damaged fibers and an in situ evaluate of the micromechanics of huge scale bridging in ceramic composites.

Defects in High-k Gate Dielectric Stacks: Nano-Electronic by MASAAKI NIWA, RIICHIROU MITSUHASHI (auth.), Evgeni Gusev

By MASAAKI NIWA, RIICHIROU MITSUHASHI (auth.), Evgeni Gusev (eds.)

The target of this NATO complex learn Workshop (ARW) entitled “Defects in complicated High-k Dielectric Nano-electronic Semiconductor Devices”, which was once held in St. Petersburg, Russia, from July eleven to fourteen, 2005, was once to envision the very complicated clinical concerns that pertain to using complex excessive dielectric consistent (high-k) fabrics in subsequent new release semiconductor units. The distinct characteristic of this workshop used to be specialize in a big factor of defects during this novel classification of fabrics. one of many key hindrances to high-k integration into Si nano-technology are the digital defects in high-k fabrics. it's been demonstrated that defects do exist in high-k dielectrics they usually play a major function in machine operation. besides the fact that, little or no is understood concerning the nature of the defects or approximately attainable innovations to put off, or at the least reduce them. Given the absence of a possible replacement within the close to destiny, well-focused clinical study and competitive improvement courses on high-k gate dielectrics and similar units needs to proceed for semiconductor electronics to stay a aggressive source of revenue generating strength within the worldwide market.

By Solomon H. Snyder (auth.), Leslie L. Iversen, Susan D. Iversen, Solomon H. Snyder (eds.)

It is now 8 years because the first instruction manual volumes on uncomplicated Neuro­ pharmacology have been released, and there were many very important advances. As in lots of different components in technology, growth during this box has depended to a substantial volume at the availability of latest experimental equipment, and quantity 15 experiences a few significant contemporary advancements, together with new autoradiographic strategies that let direct visualization of drug and transmitter receptors within the fearful approach, and the pin­ pointing of the correct destinations of the adjustments in mind metabolism elicited via a number of drugs. quantity sixteen and 17 conceal of the main energetic parts for uncomplicated learn in psychopharmacology in the interim: the characterization of drug and transmitter receptors in mind by means of radioligand binding recommendations, and reviews of the function of small peptides in mind functionality. The latter quarter, particularly, illustrates how quickly development remains to be made in simple examine at the mechanisms of chemical conversation in the apprehensive method. 8 years in the past whilst the guide first seemed not one of the opioid peptides (enkephalins and endorphins) had but been pointed out. on account that then an entire new region of easy organic examine has taken with those ingredients, and also we all know of greater than thirty different neuropeptides with putative eNS trans­ mitter functions.
