These are the preliminary findings on European Social Sciences and Humanities (SSH) in a Global Context produced by the European project, Interco-SSH, which examines the processes of institutionalization and internationalization of the social sciences and humanities.; The SSH form an increasingly global field of research and training. Research output has during the past three decades expanded considerably in almost every part of the world, transnational connections and collaborations have gained more weight, and English has become the lingua franca of international communication.This globalizing field of the SSH is strongly dominated by Western countries in terms ofresearch capacity and publication outlets, and even more so with regard to scholarly recognition and prestige (as measured by citations and prizes). At the global level the SSH display a duopolistic structure, with a North American-European core, various semi-peripheral and multiple peripheral regions and countries.One of the most important changes in this global system has been the rise of Europe, which in terms of research output (articles, books) and research organizations (networks, journals,professional associations) is on a level that is roughly comparable to that of North America. Ina relatively short period of time, mainly since the 1990s, a European infrastructure has emerged (funding programs, journals, professional associations) that has reshaped the research and publication process in the SSH in the region. The EC Framework programmes played a structuring role in fostering intra-European collaboration involving smaller countries and their institutions.
Newsstand in Chaotianmen (朝天门), near the confluence of the Jialing river (嘉陵江) and the Yangzte (长江). It offers a library service as well. Readers may borrow books from the collection available for 1 yuan a day. There is no need to register or ask for a reader's card. Trust is taken for granted, and it seems to work. According to the seller, never has a reader forgotten to return a book.
N/A; Modern computer architectures use features which often com-plicate the WCET analysis of real-time software. Alterna-tive time-predictable designs, and in particular caches, thus are gaining more and more interest. A recently proposed stack cache, for instance, avoids the need for the analysis of complex cache states. Instead, only the occupancy level of the cache has to be determined. The memory transfers generated by the standard stack cache are not generally aligned. These unaligned accesses risk to introduce complexity to the otherwise simple WCET analysis. In this work, we investigate three different ap-proaches to handle the alignment problem in the stack cache: (1) unaligned transfers, (2) alignment through compiler-gen-erated padding, (3) a novel hardware extension ensuring the alignment of all transfers. Simulation results show that our hardware extension offers a good compromise between average-case performance and analysis complexity.

http://ercim-news.ercim.eu/en88/; Today's software systems are increasingly networked and are further characterized by ever-changing functionalities provided to/required from the networked environment because of the wide variety of dynamically available heterogeneous applications. To manage evolution in this context, the CONNECT project pursues the automated synthesis of CONNECTors enabling continuous composition and interoperability of applications.
