The Instagram globe-trotters: contemporary representation (s) of the trip
This research work focuses on studying the representations of the journey put into circulation via the Instagram device by a group of users — which we simply define as a globe-trotters whose passion and practice from the other side are laid down as communal denominators. The study of the process of...

University demand and firm innovation : a quantitative and qualitative evidence
This dissertation studies the contribution of universities to industrial innovation by focusing on the impact that university demand has on the innovative performance of firms.In the first chapter, we conduct an in-depth literature review of the main research streams studying universities’ influence...
A religious landscape between rites and depiction. Eleuthers in the Euripide Antiope
The concept of ‘religious landscape’ cannot be confused either with that of a cultuel landscape (the integration of cultuel practices and pathways into the building blocks of a landscape) or with that of cultural space (the structuring of a social space through the dissemination and prioritisation o...
Identity, gênery and music in the funeral corners Javaé
This text addresses the funeral corner of Javaé women as a musical gênery emerging from performing contexts. Killers and chores, known as yburu, are carried out by women during periods of fighting. The relationship between those corners and the myocosmological narrative will be analysed initially an...
Inter-institutional cooperation: challenges, difficulties, economic impacts, possible actions
Our research focuses on cooperation between institutions in the implementation of their policies in the regions. This issue is of particular importance in a particular economic context of financial crises and excessive state indebtedness, where efforts are made to control the allocation of public fu...
REFIM: A Practical Interference Management in Heterogeneous Wireless Access Networks
Due to the increasing demand of capacity in wireless cellular networks, the small cells such as pico and femto cells are becoming more popular to enjoy a spatial reuse gain, and thus cells with different sizes are expected to coexist in a complex manner. In such a heterogeneous environment, the role...
“ruth weiss: a poetics grounded in intermediality and performance”
of Platon’s private poetic competition in Timeland-Critias in the margins of Panathenia, Timée has every chance of winning. Although formally inspired by traditional hymnic and genealogical poetry, its performance implements an entirely new concept of discursive mímesis, i.e. ‘updating’ in and throu...
Semantic-oriented Recommandation for Content Enrichment
In this thesis, we aim at enriching the content of an unstructured document with respect to a domain of interest. The goal is to minimize the vocabulary and informational gap between the document and the domain. Such an enrichment which is based on Natural Language Processing and Information Retriev...
Limits and opportunities of integrated design in sustainable buildings : the need for a more comprehensive project process
The quest to reduce national and global environmental impacts has had a significant impact on the construction industry. In most developed countries, the construction sector is responsible for 35% of waste generation, 32% of energy consumption, and 19% of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Both theory...
Adoption of the International Standards on Auditing in Spain
[ES] The aim of the proposed end-of-career work is to follow the process of adapting international standards in the national context, as well as analysing the main changes and implications that this adaptation entails. As published in the decision of the Institute for Accounting and Audit of Account...
Paradigm free regularization for fMRI brain activation recovery
The advent of new brain imaging techniques such as resting-state functional MRI (fMRI), has led to the need for new approaches to recover brain functional activations without a prior knowledge on the experimental paradigm, as it was the case for task-fMRI. Conventional methods, i.e. the general line...
Long-term asset allocation, risk tolerance and market sentiment
International audience This paper studies optimal equity portfolios with long-term horizon under heterogeneous risk aversion levels. We focus on European stocks and empirically show that contemporaneous excess returns of semi-active strategies are negatively associated with market conditions and sen...
A new thermal infrared channel configuration for accurate land surface temperature retrieval from satellite data
International audience Land surface temperature (LST) is an important parameter in many research fields. Many algorithms have been developed to retrieve LST from satellite thermal infrared (TIR) measurements; of these, the most widely used are the split window (SW) and temperature–emissivity separat...
ELASTICITY: Topological Characterization of Robustness in Complex Networks
Just as a herd of animals relies on its robust social structure to survive in the wild, similarly robustness is a crucial characteristic for the survival of a complex network under attack. The capacity to measure robustness in complex networks defines the resolve of a network to maintain functionali...
Chloride attack study on high-performance self-compacting concretes with shrinking mitigating aids and different water/binder ratios
[PT] Retraction may generate cracks in high-performance self-compacting concrete (CAAAD) by decreasing its durability, in order to reduce or eliminate the shrinkage of the concrete, retraction mitigating aids are used. The purpose of this search is to show the behaviour of CAAADs that were produced...
Simulation-based optimisation for stochastic maintenance routing in an offshore wind farm
International audience Scheduling maintenance routing for an offshore wind farm is a challenging and complex task. The problem is to find the best routes for the Crew Transfer Vessels to maintain the turbines in order to minimise the total cost. This paper primarily proposes an efficient solution me...
Matching 2-D Ellipses to 3-D Circles with Application to Vehicle Pose Estimation
Finding the three-dimensional representation of all or a part of a scene from a single two dimensional image is a challenging task. In this paper we propose a method for identifying the pose and location of objects with circular protrusions in three dimensions from a single image and a 3d representa...
Effect of Weather, School Transport, and Perceived Neighborhood Characteristics on Moderate to Vigorous Physical Activity Levels of Adolescents From Two European Cities
Nursing Students' Learning in High Fidelity Simulation: An Ethnographic Study
Degree: Doctor of Philosophy Abstract: Understanding what happens to students’ learning in high-fidelity simulation (HFS) is important as we build our knowledge around the use of HFS in nursing education. Research in the area of high-fidelity is emerging at a rapid pace, however much of the literatu...
A dynamic approach for the optimisation of competing high-performance networks
This thesis seeks to optimise the communications of supercomputing applications running on clusters of PCs. Due to the massive use of multi-channel processors, it is now imperative to manage a large number of competing communication flows. We have identified and analysed the disappointing performanc...

Empirical evidence on the impact of privatization of fixed-line operators on telecommunications performance - Comparing OECD, Latin American, and African countries
The aim of this paper is to highlight empirically some important worldwide differences in the impact of privatization of the fixed-line telecommunications operator on network expansion, tariffs, and efficiency during the 1985-2007 period for a large panel of countries. Our work suggests that the div...
The potential of the analyse-network in medieval history
“Network” is arguably the most common concept used in the work of the medivists of the last two decades. Countless studies refer to power networks, networks of influence or friendship, customer networks, merchant networks, monastic networks, intellectual networks, urban networks, etc., so that one c...
