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: Can we see monkeys from space? Emerging technologies to map biodiversity

An international team of scientists has proposed a new multi-disciplinary approach in which an array of new technologies will allow us to map biodiversity and the risks that wildlife is facing at the scale of whole landscapes. The findings are published in Nature Ecology and Evolution. This international research is led by the Kunming Institute of Zoology from China, University of East Anglia, University of Leicester and the Leibniz Institute for Zoo and Wildlife Research.

Using a combination of satellite and ground data, the team proposes that it is now possible to map biodiversity with an accuracy that has not been previously...

Im Focus: Climate satellite: Tracking methane with robust laser technology

Heatwaves in the Arctic, longer periods of vegetation in Europe, severe floods in West Africa – starting in 2021, scientists want to explore the emissions of the greenhouse gas methane with the German-French satellite MERLIN. This is made possible by a new robust laser system of the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT in Aachen, which achieves unprecedented measurement accuracy.

Methane is primarily the result of the decomposition of organic matter. The gas has a 25 times greater warming potential than carbon dioxide, but is not as...

Im Focus: How protons move through a fuel cell

Hydrogen is regarded as the energy source of the future: It is produced with solar power and can be used to generate heat and electricity in fuel cells. Empa researchers have now succeeded in decoding the movement of hydrogen ions in crystals – a key step towards more efficient energy conversion in the hydrogen industry of tomorrow.

As charge carriers, electrons and ions play the leading role in electrochemical energy storage devices and converters such as batteries and fuel cells. Proton...

Im Focus: A unique data centre for cosmological simulations

Scientists from the Excellence Cluster Universe at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität Munich have establised "Cosmowebportal", a unique data centre for cosmological simulations located at the Leibniz Supercomputing Centre (LRZ) of the Bavarian Academy of Sciences. The complete results of a series of large hydrodynamical cosmological simulations are available, with data volumes typically exceeding several hundred terabytes. Scientists worldwide can interactively explore these complex simulations via a web interface and directly access the results.

With current telescopes, scientists can observe our Universe’s galaxies and galaxy clusters and their distribution along an invisible cosmic web. From the...
