  • Girardin, Fabien; Dal Fiore, Filippo; Ratti, Carlo; Blat, Josep (Taylor & Francis (Routledge), 2008)
    In recent years, the large deployment of mobile devices has led to a massive increase in the volume of records of where people have been and when they were there. The analysis of these spatio-temporal data can supply ...
  • Lozano Solsona, Angel (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2008)
    Expressions relating spectral efficiency, power, and Doppler spectrum, are derived for Rayleigh-faded wireless channels with Gaussian signal transmission. No side information on the state of the channel is assumed at the ...
  • Cramer, Ronald; Daza, Vanesa; Gracia, Ignacio; Jiménez Urroz, Jorge; Leander, Gregor; Martí, Jaume, 1943-; Padró, Carles (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2008)
    Error-correcting codes and matroids have been widely used in the study of ordinary secret sharing schemes. In this paper, the connections between codes, matroids, and a special class of secret sharing schemes, namely, ...
  • Faridi, Azadeh; Ephremides, Anthony (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2008)
    We investigate the problem of finding minimum-distortion policies for streaming delay-sensitive but distortion-tolerant data. We consider cross-layer approaches which exploit the coupling between presentation and transport ...
  • Serrà Julià, Joan; Gómez Gutiérrez, Emilia; Herrera Boyer, Perfecto; Serra, Xavier (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2008)
    We present a new technique for audio signal comparison based on tonal subsequence alignment and its application to detect cover versions (i.e., different performances of the same underlying musical piece). Cover song ...
  • Daza, Vanesa; Herranz, Javier; Sáez, Germán (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2008)
    In a distributed key distribution scheme, a set of servers helps a set of users in a group to securely obtain a common key. Security means that an adversary who corrupts some servers and some users has no information about ...
  • Lozano Solsona, Angel; Tulino, Antonia M.; Verdú, Sergio (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2008)
    This paper formulates power allocation policies that maximize the region of mutual informations achievable in multiuser downlink OFDM channels. Arbitrary partitioning of the available tones among users and arbitrary ...
  • Schoonenboom, Judith; Sligte, Henk; Moghnie, Ayman; Hernández Leo, Davinia; Stefanov, Krassen; Glahn, Christian; Specht, Marcus; Lemmers, Ruud (International Association of Online Engineering (IAOE), 2008)
    This paper describes an experiment to explore the effects of the TENCompetence infrastructure for supporting lifelong competence development which is now in development. This infrastructure provides structured, multi-leveled ...
  • Pérez Sanagustín, Maria del Mar; Santos Rodríguez, Patrícia; Moghnie, Ayman; Hernández Leo, Davinia; Blat, Josep (Inderscience Enterprises Ltd, 2009)
    The emergence of the Web 2.0 technologies in the last years have changed the way people interact with knowledge. Services for cooperation and collaboration have placed the user in the centre of a new knowledge building space. ...
  • Huguet, Marina; Tobón Gómez, Catalina, 1981-; Bijnens, Bart; Frangi Caregnato, Alejandro; Petit i Guinovart, Màrius (BioMed Central, 2009)
    Blunt chest traumas are a clinical challenge, both for diagnosis and treatment. The use of Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance can play a major role in this setting. We present two cases: a 12-year-old boy and 45-year-old ...
  • Chicharro Raventós, Daniel; Andrzejak, Ralph Gregor (American Physical Society, 2009)
    To detect directional couplings from time series various measures based on distances in reconstructed state spaces were introduced. These measures can, however, be biased by asymmetries in the dynamics' structure, noise ...
  • Maestre Gómez, Esteban; Ramírez, Rafael,1966-; Kersten, Stefan; Serra, Xavier (MIT Press, 2009)
    Here we describe an approach to the expressive synthesis of jazz saxophone melodies that reuses audio recordings and carefully concatenates note samples. The aim is to generate an expressive audio sequence from the analysis ...
  • Singh, Pankai K.; Marzo, Alberto; Coley, Stuart C.; Berti, Guntram; Bijlenga, Philippe; Lawford, Patricia V.; Villa-Uriol, Maria-Cruz; Rufenacht, Daniel A.; McCormack, Keith M.; Frangi Caregnato, Alejandro; Patel, Umang J.; Hose, D. Rodney (Hindawi, 2009)
    Objective: The importance of hemodynamics in the etiopathogenesis of intracranial aneurysms (IAs) is widely accepted. Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) is being used increasingly for hemodynamic predictions. However, ...
  • Alvino, Serena; Asensio-Pérez, Juan I.; Dimitriadis, Yannis; Hernández Leo, Davinia (Taylor & Francis (Routledge), 2009)
    Distance and blended collaborative learning settings are usually characterized by different social structures defined in terms of groups' number, dimension, and composition; these structures are variable and can change ...
  • Zhang, Chong; Villa-Uriol, Maria-Cruz; De Craene, Mathieu; Pozo Soler, José Ma. (José María); Frangi Caregnato, Alejandro (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2009)
    This paper presents a technique to estimate and model patient-specific pulsatility of cerebral aneurysms over one cardiac cycle, using 3D rotational X-ray angiography (3DRA) acquisitions. Aneurysm pulsation is modeled as ...
  • Facciolo Furlan, Gabriele; Almansa, Andrés; Aujol, Jean-François; Caselles, Vicente (SIAM (Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics), 2009)
    We propose a restoration algorithm for band limited images that considers irregular (perturbed) sampling, denoising, and deconvolution. We explore the application of a family of regularizers that allow to control the ...
  • Serrà Julià, Joan; Serra, Xavier; Andrzejak, Ralph Gregor (Institute of Physics (IOP), 2009)
    There is growing evidence that nonlinear time series analysis techniques can be used to successfully characterize, classify, or process signals derived from realworld dynamics even though these are not necessarily deterministic ...
  • Girardin, Fabien; Vaccari, Andrea; Gerber, Alexander; Biderman, Assaf; Ratti, Carlo (Joint Research Centre of the European Commission, 2009)
    In the past, sensors networks in cities have been limited to fixed sensors, embedded in particular locations, under centralised control. Today, new applications can leverage wireless devices and use them as sensors to ...
  • Masquelier, Timothée; Hugues, Etienne; Deco, Gustavo; Thorpe, Simon J. (Society for Neuroscience, 2009)
    Recent experiments have established that information can be encoded in the spike times of neurons relative to the phase of a background oscillation in the local field potential—a phenomenon referred to as “phase-of-firing ...
  • Venkatesan, Sivarama; Huang, Howard; Lozano Solsona, Angel; Valenzuela, R. A. (Hindawi, 2009)
    It is well known that multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) techniques can bring numerous benefits, such as higher spectral efficiency, to point-to-point wireless links. More recently, there has been interest in extending ...
