First CajAstur International Prize for Soft Computing

22.11.2007
In London, on July 23rd 2007, at the Imperial College, the Jury of the CajAstur International Prize for Soft Computing, congregated to evaluate the different candidatures presented to the First edition of the Prize, and after analyzing all the proposals and accompanying documentation, decided:

'To distinguish Professor Marco Dorigo as the winner of the First Edition of the Cajastur International Prize for Soft Computing, in consideration of his outstanding contributions to the advancement of Soft Computing, by developing the Ant Colony Optimization (ACO) methodology.'

The Awards Ceremony will be held at the "Palacio Revillagigedo" in Gijon Asturias, on Tuesday 27 November 2007 on 19:30. The merits of Profesor Marco Dorigo will be presented by Professor Lotfi Zadeh president of the Jury.

After receiving the Prize, Professor Dorigo will give a talk on Swarm Intelligence.

Prof. Dorigo is Director of Research at the Institut de Recherches Interdisciplinaires et de Développements en Intelligence Artificielle (IRIDIA), Université Libre de Bruxelles (Belgium)

The CajAstur International Prize for Soft Computing is organized in a yearly basis and meant to distinguish a person or group of persons for the realization of a relevant scientific or industrial application, meaning an original contribution in the area of Soft Computing. The Prize consists of € 20,000.00 and an Award Certificate. The Jury of the Prize is the Scientific Committee of the Foundation for the Advancement of Soft Computing.

In order to attend please confirm as soon as possible to ecsc@softcomputing.es and print http://www.softcomputing.es/upload/web/parrafos/00569/docs/icprize.jpg

Cooccurring with the Awards Ceremony, during last week of November at the European Centre for Soft Computing, Professor Lotfi Zadeh will give the talk 'A New Frontier in Computation - Computation with Information Described in Natural Language' on Wednesday 28 November 11:00 hours, and Professor Marco Dorigo will give the talk 'Swarm Intelligence' on Friday 30 November 11:00 hours.

Im Focus: Neutron star merger directly observed for the first time

University of Maryland researchers contribute to historic detection of gravitational waves and light created by event

On August 17, 2017, at 12:41:04 UTC, scientists made the first direct observation of a merger between two neutron stars--the dense, collapsed cores that remain...

Im Focus: Breaking: the first light from two neutron stars merging

Seven new papers describe the first-ever detection of light from a gravitational wave source. The event, caused by two neutron stars colliding and merging together, was dubbed GW170817 because it sent ripples through space-time that reached Earth on 2017 August 17. Around the world, hundreds of excited astronomers mobilized quickly and were able to observe the event using numerous telescopes, providing a wealth of new data.

Previous detections of gravitational waves have all involved the merger of two black holes, a feat that won the 2017 Nobel Prize in Physics earlier this month....

Im Focus: Smart sensors for efficient processes

Material defects in end products can quickly result in failures in many areas of industry, and have a massive impact on the safe use of their products. This is why, in the field of quality assurance, intelligent, nondestructive sensor systems play a key role. They allow testing components and parts in a rapid and cost-efficient manner without destroying the actual product or changing its surface. Experts from the Fraunhofer IZFP in Saarbrücken will be presenting two exhibits at the Blechexpo in Stuttgart from 7–10 November 2017 that allow fast, reliable, and automated characterization of materials and detection of defects (Hall 5, Booth 5306).

When quality testing uses time-consuming destructive test methods, it can result in enormous costs due to damaging or destroying the products. And given that...

Im Focus: Cold molecules on collision course

Using a new cooling technique MPQ scientists succeed at observing collisions in a dense beam of cold and slow dipolar molecules.

How do chemical reactions proceed at extremely low temperatures? The answer requires the investigation of molecular samples that are cold, dense, and slow at...

Im Focus: Shrinking the proton again!

Scientists from the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics, using high precision laser spectroscopy of atomic hydrogen, confirm the surprisingly small value of the proton radius determined from muonic hydrogen.

It was one of the breakthroughs of the year 2010: Laser spectroscopy of muonic hydrogen resulted in a value for the proton charge radius that was significantly...
