    The beta decay of the free neutron provides several probes to test the Standard Model of particle physics as well as to search for extensions thereof. Hence, multiple experiments investigating the decay have already been performed, are under way or are being prepared. These measure the mean lifetime, angular correlation coefficients or various spectra of the charged decay products (proton and electron). NoMoS, the Neutron decay prOducts MOmentum Spectrometer, presents a novel method of momentum spectroscopy: it utilizes the $R \times B$ drift effect to disperse charged particles dependent on their momentum in an uniformly curved magnetic field. This spectrometer is designed to precisely measure momentum spectra and angular correlation coefficients in free neutron beta decay to test the Standard Model and to search for new physics beyond. With NoMoS, we aim to measure inter alia the electron-antineutrino correlation coefficient $a$ and the Fierz interference term $b$ with an ultimate precision of $\Delta a/a < 0.3\%$ and $\Delta b < 10^{-3}$ respectively. In this paper, we present the measurement principles, discuss measurement uncertainties and systematics, and give a status update.

    International audience; Electric or hybrid vehicles are very silent, which represents a major advantage for the reduction of noise annoyance in urban areas. But this makes them dangerous for pedestrians, especially vulnerable ones as visually-impaired people. Current solutions consist in using warning sound so that the exterior noise of an electric vehicle is as high as for a conventional one. This may cancel the benefit of electric vehicles for the reduction of sound annoyance. The eVADER project (funded by the European Commission) aims at proposing a prototype car which combines a high safety and a low noise level. A part of the the work program consisted in perceptual studies. The goal of these studies was to evaluate the influence of various timbre parameters on the detectability and the unpleasantness of a warning sound. Results show that it is possible to make an electric vehicle easily detected while keeping its sound level much lower than the one of a conventional car.

    Part 8: Pointing, Touch, Gesture and Speech-Based Interaction Techniques; International audience; Eyewear displays allow users to interact with virtual content displayed over real-world vision, in active situations like standing and walking. Pointing techniques for eyewear displays have been proposed, but their social acceptability, efficiency, and situation awareness remain to be assessed. Using a novel street-walking simulator, we conducted an empirical study of target acquisition while standing and walking under different levels of street crowdedness. We evaluated three phone-based eyewear pointing techniques: indirect touch on a touchscreen, and two in-air techniques using relative device rotations around forward and a downward axes. Direct touch on a phone, without eyewear, was used as a control condition. Results showed that indirect touch was the most efficient and socially acceptable technique, and that in-air pointing was inefficient when walking. Interestingly, the eyewear displays did not improve situation awareness compared to the control condition. We discuss implications for eyewear interaction design.

    International audience; A deep learning surrogate for the direct numerical prediction of two-dimensional acoustic waves propagation and scattering with obstacles is developed through an auto-regressive spatio- temporal convolutional neural network. A single database of high-fidelity lattice Boltzmann temporal simulations is employed in the training of the network, achieving accurate predictions for long simulation times for a variety of test cases, representative of bounded and unbounded configurations. The capacity of the network to extrapolate outside the manifold of examples seen during the training phase is demonstrated by the obtaining of accurate acoustic predic- tions for relevant applications, such as the scattering of acoustic waves on an airfoil trailing edge, an engine nacelle or in-duct propagation. The method is tested for two types of input normalizations, coupled with an a-posteriori correction which improves the acoustic energy conservation of the predictions. The use of an adaptive local normalization along with the physics-based energy conservation results in an error reduction for all the studied cases.

    International audience; Les communications sans contact sont omniprésentes dans notre quotidien, allant des badges de contrôle d'accès au passeport électronique. Ces systèmes sont sensibles aux attaques par relais, dans lesquelles un adversaire transfère simplement les messages entre le prouveur et le vérifieur pour usurper l'identité du prouveur. Les protocoles délimiteurs de distance (distance-bounding) ont été ont ntroduits pour contrer ces attaques en assurant une borne sur la distance entre le prouveur et le vérifieur grâcè a la mesure du temps des communications. Par la suite de nombreux travaux ont amélioré la sécurité de ces protocoles, mais ont aussi cherché à assurer le respect de la vie privée face à des adversaires actifs et également face à des vérifieurs malicieux. En particulier, une menace difficile à prévenir est la fraude terroriste, où un prouveur lointain coopère avec un complice proche pour tromper le vérifieur. La contre-mesure usuelle pour cette menace est de rendre impossible l'action du complice sans l'aide du prouveur lointain, à moins que le prouveur ne lui donne suffisamment d'information pour qu'il retrouve sa clef privée et puisse ainsi toujours se faire passer pour le prouveur. Dans cet article, nous proposons une nouvelle approche où le prouveur ne révèle pas sa clef privée mais utilise une clef de session avec une signature de groupe, la rendant ainsi utilisable plusieurs fois. Ceci permet à un adversaire d'usurper l'identité du prouveur sans même connaître sa clef de signature. Grâce à cette approche nous proposons SPADE le premier protocole de délimiteur de distance qui est anonyme, révocable et formellement prouvé sûr. Mots-clefs : Protocole délimiteur de distance (Distance Bounding), Sécurité, résitance à la fraude terroriste.

    International audience; Multivalent cation interaction and mineral association play a vital role in organic carbon (OC) stability in tropical soils. However, the retention mechanisms of OC in mineral-cation-OC systems remain largely unclear at the molecular level. Of all OC forms, low molecular weight organic acids (LMWOAs) are readily biodegradable. Given the general acidic conditions and dominance of kaolinite in tropical soils, we investigated the retention mechanisms of malic acid (MA) in kaolinite-Fe(III)-MA systems with various Fe/MA molar ratios at pH similar to 3.5 using Fe K-edge extended X-ray absorption fine structure (EXAFS) spectroscopy. Our results indicated the formed ferrihydrite mainly contributed to the enhanced MA retention through adsorption and/or coprecipitation at high Fe/MA molar ratios in kaolinite-Fe(III)-MA systems relative to kaolinite-MA systems. With the decrease of Fe/MA molar ratios, ternary complexation of MA with kaolinite via a tetrahedral Fe bridge occurred in kaolinite-Fe(III)-MA systems. This study highlighted the significant impact of Fe speciation on MA retention mechanisms in kaolinite-Fe(III)-MA systems under acidic conditions, and clearly showed the impact of ferrihydrite-induced adsorption/coprecipitation and Fe-bridged ternary complexation on MA retention in ternary kaolinite-Fe(III)MA systems, which will enhance our understanding of the dynamics of MA and other LMWOAs in tropical soils.

    Part 7: Digital Governance; International audience; Infrastructural development is a significant determinant of economic growth. It remains an elusive pursuit for many developing economies suffering from public infrastructural project failures. Although the causes of these failures are identifiable, they remain persistent. Government corruption has been identified as the primary cause of project failures amidst a host of other causal factors, spurred by the ambiguity in public service administration. These factors heighten capital expenditures and hence, the need for more transparent systems in public infrastructural project planning and -delivery. This research uses a case-study methodology to examine the importance of public involvement in addressing the causes of failures in public infrastructural project planning and -delivery. Using Nigeria as a case, the findings from conducted interviews and a document review support the proposition of a technologically collaborative approach in addressing the causes of public infrastructural project failures. The institutionalization of transparency-enhancing blockchain systems are vital in government and public involvement in the processes of public infrastructural project planning and -delivery.

    In this paper, a scheduling protocol for electric vehicle (EV) home charging with time of use pricing is introduced. This work addresses the problem of EVs charging at home by adopting an appropriate charging process protocol over Power Line Communications (PLC). The scheduling protocol is aimed at minimizing peak loads on distribution feeders due to multiple EVs charging while using a time-of-use pricing policy. Energy efficiency and performance are both taken into account. An appropriate analytical formulation of the scheduling problem is given together with the proposed scheduling protocol. Simulations demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed approach in minimizing peak loads while satisfying the defined constraints.

    Renal compartment segmentation on CT images targets on extracting the 3D structure of renal compartments from abdominal CTA images and is of great significance to the diagnosis and treatment for kidney diseases. However, due to the unclear compartment boundary, thin compartment structure and large anatomy variation of 3D kidney CT images, deep-learning based renal compartment segmentation is a challenging task. We propose a novel weakly supervised learning framework, Cycle Prototype Network, for 3D renal compartment segmentation. It has three innovations: (1) A Cycle Prototype Learning (CPL) is proposed to learn consistency for generalization. It learns from pseudo labels through the forward process and learns consistency regularization through the reverse process. The two processes make the model robust to noise and label-efficient. (2) We propose a Bayes Weakly Supervised Module (BWSM) based on cross-period prior knowledge. It learns prior knowledge from cross-period unlabeled data and perform error correction automatically, thus generates accurate pseudo labels. (3) We present a Fine Decoding Feature Extractor (FDFE) for fine-grained feature extraction. It combines global morphology information and local detail information to obtain feature maps with sharp detail, so the model will achieve fine segmentation on thin structures. Our extensive experiments demonstrated our great performance. Our model achieves Dice of \(79.1\%\) and \(78.7\%\) with only four labeled images, achieving a significant improvement by about \(20\%\) than typical prototype model PANet [16].

    International audience; The vibratory response of a periodically-forced generic mechanical system undergoing a unilateral contact condition is addressed. The unilateral contact constraint is reformulated as a nonsmooth Lipschitz continuous function. This allows the use of the so-called semismooth Newton method capable of solving the equations governing the dynamics and the unilateral contact constraints simultaneously. The assumed periodic solution and the contact force are approximated by truncated Fourier series before being incorporated in the solver after projection of the equations on the Fourier basis. Continuation of the solution harmonics with respect to the forcing frequency is performed. For a medium size system of 20 degrees-of-freedom, it is shown that convergence is achieved by comparing with the reference time-marching solution.
