'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.

When choosing materials to make something, trade-offs need to be made between a host of properties, such as thickness, stiffness and weight. Depending on the application in question, finding just the right balance is the difference between success and failure
Now, a team of Penn Engineers has demonstrated a new material they call "nanocardboard," an ultrathin equivalent of corrugated paper cardboard. A square...

Scientists developed specially coated nanometer-sized vehicles that can be actively moved through dense tissue like the vitreous of the eye. So far, the transport of nano-vehicles has only been demonstrated in model systems or biological fluids, but not in real tissue. The work was published in the journal Science Advances and constitutes one step further towards nanorobots becoming minimally-invasive tools for precisely delivering medicine to where it is needed.
Researchers of the “Micro, Nano and Molecular Systems” Lab at the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems in Stuttgart, together with an international...
