REPRESENTATION, MYTH AND METAPHOR OF THE TOWER OF BABEL. FROM THE LINGUISTIC FORMATION OF COLLECTIVE IDENTITIES TO THE TECHNOLOGICAL IDENTITIES OF GLOBALITY.

María Bendito Haro

The current research project is a symbolic and iconographic exploration of the Tower of Babel myth as a metaphor of man’s relationship with the universe. It revolves around the artistic image of the Tower of Babel and has, as basis of thinking, the understanding of the world in the Euro-American history, which ultimately refers to the history of metaphorical knowledge. …

Thin AlN diffusion barrier for carbon nanotubes growth over stainless steel substrate

Luis Fernando Pantoja Suárez, Islam Alshaikh

Nowadays, there are diverse kinds of diffusion barriers (DB) to avoid the migration (diffusion) of catalyst atoms inside the substrate during the annealing process before starting the carbon nanotubes (CNTs) growth using PECVD process. Different oxides and nitrides can be used as a DB. We have compared aluminum oxide (Al2O3) and aluminum nitride (AlN), which act very well over different …

Identification of ap2-hs as the master regulator of heat shock response in Plasmodium falciparum parasites

Elisabet Tintó Font

Plasmodium falciparum, the causal agent of malaria, is frequently exposed to changes of temperature during its life cycle such as the cyclical fever episodes that occur in many infected patients. Different parasite lines vary in their survival rates to high febrile temperatures, but the mechanism by which some are more resistant than others remains unknown. Next generation sequencing analysis of …

Approaching the Impact of Multiple Stressors on River Biofilms

Ferran Romero Blanch

Freshwater ecosystems are threatened by multiple natural and man-made stressors (i.e. physical, chemical and biological stressors). Most of the studies performed so far evaluate the impact of stressors as individual entities acting on model species and originate estimates of “tolerable” concentrations such as the lowest observed effect concentration (LOEC) or the predicted no-effect concentration (PNEC). These studies neglect the fact …

The representation of translation and borders in contemporary artist Antoni Muntadas' project "On Translation" (1995 – nowadays)

Anna Dot

Since the 70’s contemporary artist Antoni Muntadas (Barcelona, 1942) has been producing and showing artworks that reflect on issues related to cognitive processes and perception. It is in the 90’s when the concept of “translation” becomes literally present in his artworks. This happens specifically in 1995, when he initiates the series called On Translation. This is an unfinished project on …

Reconfigurable Frequency Detection

Pilar Soriano García

A sensor developed to detect used and available electromagnetic spectrum for wireless communication applications is described. The sensor can detect unknown signals and trace their angular coordinates, information that can be used for electronic intelligence operations, where communication outposts or radar stations can be identified using unmanned aerial vehicles.

La inclusión educativa mediante la planificación de los apoyos al alumnado con Discapacidad Intelectual y del Desarrollo

Cristina Oliveira Rodríguez

La inclusión educativa ha ido evolucionando y, actualmente, existe un amplio consenso internacional acerca el derecho que tiene cualquier persona a ser educada y aprender con sus iguales en centros educativos ordinarios (UNESCO, 1994). Así pues,  una escuela inclusiva debe orientarse hacia tres características principales (Ainscow, 2005; Duran & Giné, 2011; Echeita, 2009): la presencia de alumnado con diversidad de necesidades …

"Dolor neuropático en pacientes oncológicos en tratamiento con bortezomib"

SONIA EXPÓSITO VIZCAÍNO

Es un projecte sequencial en el que s’avalua i estudia diversos aspectes del dolor crònic en el malalt oncològic. Consta de 3 estudis: un primer estudi on es caracteritza i avalua les repercusions del dolor neuropàtic en malalts oncològics amb mieloma múltiple i quina discapacitat es derivan segons el grau de neuropàtia. Es proposa la utilització del que anomenem escala …

ANÁLISIS DEL DESARROLLO DE TRASTORNOS PSICOLÓGICOS EN PACIENTES SOBRESEDADOS EN LA UCI.

Diana Gil Castillejos

Los pacientes ingresados en las unidades de cuidados intensivos (UCI) experimentan alteraciones emocionales tales como ansiedad, estrés o depresión  y en ciertos casos pueden desarrollar un trastorno de estrés postraumático (TEPT). Esta problemática afecta aproximadamente al 20 % de los supervivientes de las UCI. La sobresedación y la deshumanización de los cuidados por parte del personal junto con ciertos factores …

ATTENTION MODELS FOR DEEP LEARNING

Carola Figueroa

In the past few years, Deep Neural Network (DNNs) achieved great success in Computational Vision Systems, such as object recognition,extracting distinctive features from images, etc. In regard to object recognition systems, such as “bag-of-words” and “deep belief networks”, have obtained excellent results on large data sets. In parallel, human vision researchers have developed accurate models of the first layers of …
