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: A step towards controlling spin-dependent petahertz electronics by material defects

The operational speed of semiconductors in various electronic and optoelectronic devices is limited to several gigahertz (a billion oscillations per second). This constrains the upper limit of the operational speed of computing. Now researchers from the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter in Hamburg, Germany, and the Indian Institute of Technology in Bombay have explained how these processes can be sped up through the use of light waves and defected solid materials.

Light waves perform several hundred trillion oscillations per second. Hence, it is natural to envision employing light oscillations to drive the electronic...

Im Focus: Freiburg researcher investigate the origins of surface texture

Most natural and artificial surfaces are rough: metals and even glasses that appear smooth to the naked eye can look like jagged mountain ranges under the microscope. There is currently no uniform theory about the origin of this roughness despite it being observed on all scales, from the atomic to the tectonic. Scientists suspect that the rough surface is formed by irreversible plastic deformation that occurs in many processes of mechanical machining of components such as milling.

Prof. Dr. Lars Pastewka from the Simulation group at the Department of Microsystems Engineering at the University of Freiburg and his team have simulated such...

Im Focus: Making the internet more energy efficient through systemic optimization

Researchers at Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden, recently completed a 5-year research project looking at how to make fibre optic communications systems more energy efficient. Among their proposals are smart, error-correcting data chip circuits, which they refined to be 10 times less energy consumptive. The project has yielded several scientific articles, in publications including Nature Communications.

Streaming films and music, scrolling through social media, and using cloud-based storage services are everyday activities now.

Im Focus: New synthesis methods enhance 3D chemical space for drug discovery

After helping develop a new approach for organic synthesis -- carbon-hydrogen functionalization -- scientists at Emory University are now showing how this approach may apply to drug discovery. Nature Catalysis published their most recent work -- a streamlined process for making a three-dimensional scaffold of keen interest to the pharmaceutical industry.

"Our tools open up whole new chemical space for potential drug targets," says Huw Davies, Emory professor of organic chemistry and senior author of the paper.
