The scientific researcher of the European Centre for Soft Computing (Spain), Enric Trillas (Barcelona 1940), has won the prestigious Kampé de Fériet Award 2008. The award was presented to him during the International Congress "Information Processing and Management of Uncertainty in Knowledge Based Systems", which took place in Malaga (Spain) from the 23rd to the 27th of June.
The Kampé de Fériet Award was created in 1992 and, since then, awards scientists who have exceptionally contributed “to the field of information processing and management of uncertainty”, every two years. Among the previous recipients are Ilya Prigogine (Nobel Prize in Chemistry, 1977), Kenneth Arrow (Nobel Prize in Economic Science, 1972) y Daniel Kahneman (Nobel Prize in Economic Science, 2002).
Enric Trillas has been Professor at UPM University (Madrid) and member of several International scientific committees, as well as director of some Spanish public institutions, such as the Spanish National Research Council (1984-1988) and the National Institute for Aerospace and Technology (1989-1995) among others.
Professor Trillas was the pioneer of Fuzzy Logic in Spain and is internationally well known. In fact the European Pioneer Award was presented to him by the European Society for Fuzzy Logic and Technologies in 1999 and the Fuzzy Systems Pioneer Award by IEEE in 2005. During the last year Enric Trillas has been laureate with other important prizes, such as the Medal of the Polish Academy of Science, by Professor Janusz Kacprzyk.
Currently, Enric Trillas is the co-head of a research unit at the European Centre of Soft Computing, an advanced research and development centre in intelligent systems.

At the Hannover Messe 2018, the Bundesanstalt für Materialforschung und-prüfung (BAM) will show how, in the future, astronauts could produce their own tools or spare parts in zero gravity using 3D printing. This will reduce, weight and transport costs for space missions. Visitors can experience the innovative additive manufacturing process live at the fair.
Powder-based additive manufacturing in zero gravity is the name of the project in which a component is produced by applying metallic powder layers and then...
Physicists at the Laboratory for Attosecond Physics, which is jointly run by Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität and the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics, have developed a high-power laser system that generates ultrashort pulses of light covering a large share of the mid-infrared spectrum. The researchers envisage a wide range of applications for the technology – in the early diagnosis of cancer, for instance.
Molecules are the building blocks of life. Like all other organisms, we are made of them. They control our biorhythm, and they can also reflect our state of...
University of Connecticut researchers have created a biodegradable composite made of silk fibers that can be used to repair broken load-bearing bones without the complications sometimes presented by other materials.
Repairing major load-bearing bones such as those in the leg can be a long and uncomfortable process.
Study published in the journal ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces is the outcome of an international effort that included teams from Dresden and Berlin in Germany, and the US.
Scientists at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) together with colleagues from the Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin (HZB) and the University of Virginia...
Novel highly efficient and brilliant gamma-ray source: Based on model calculations, physicists of the Max PIanck Institute for Nuclear Physics in Heidelberg propose a novel method for an efficient high-brilliance gamma-ray source. A giant collimated gamma-ray pulse is generated from the interaction of a dense ultra-relativistic electron beam with a thin solid conductor. Energetic gamma-rays are copiously produced as the electron beam splits into filaments while propagating across the conductor. The resulting gamma-ray energy and flux enable novel experiments in nuclear and fundamental physics.
The typical wavelength of light interacting with an object of the microcosm scales with the size of this object. For atoms, this ranges from visible light to...
