  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • Lozano Solsona, Àngel; 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • Hernández Leo, Davinia; Louys, Amélie; Schoonenboom, Judith; Pérez Sanagustín, Maria del Mar; Lemmers, Ruud (International Forum of Educational Technology & Society, 2009)
    This paper describes a pilot study centred on the technology-enhanced self-development of competences in lifelong learning education carried out in the challenging context of the Association of Participants Àgora. The pilot ...
  • Maestre Gómez, Esteban; Ramírez, Rafael (IOS Press, 2009)
    We present a machine learning approach to modeling bowing control parameter contours in violin performance. Using accurate sensing techniques we obtain relevant timbre-related bowing control parameters such as bow transversal ...
  • Pérez Sanagustín, Maria del Mar; Santos Rodríguez, Patrícia; Moghnieh, 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. ...
  • Maestre Gómez, Esteban; Ramírez, Rafael; 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 ...
  • Ferradans Ramonde, Sira; Bertalmío, Marcelo; Caselles, Vicente (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2009)
    Demosaicking is a particular case of interpolation problems where, from a scalar image in which each pixel has either the red, the green or the blue component, we want to interpolate the full-color image. State-of-the-art ...
  • 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 ...
  • Venkatesan, Sivarama; Huang, Howard; Lozano Solsona, Àngel; 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • Spa Carvajal, Carlos; Garriga, Adan; Escolano, José (Elsevier, 2009)
    The Pseudo-Spectral Time Domain (PSTD) method is an alternative time-marching method to classical leapfrog finite difference schemes in the simulation of wave-like propagating phenomena. It is based on the fundamentals ...
  • 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, ...
  • 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 ...
  • Hoogendoorn, Corné; Sukno, Federico M.; Ordás, Sebastián; Frangi Caregnato, Alejandro (Springer, 2009)
    In this work we describe the usage of bilinear statistical models as a means of factoring the shape variability into two components attributed to inter-subject variation and to the intrinsic dynamics of the human heart. ...
  • Huguet, Marina; Tobón Gómez, Catalina; 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 ...
  • 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 ...
