  • Sayago Barrantes, Sergio; Forbes, Paula; Blat, Josep (Taylor & Francis (Routledge), 2013)
    A growing ageing population and an increasing reliance on Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) to conduct activities associated with daily living means that addressing how older people learn to use ICT is timely ...
  • 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, ...
  • Batard, Thomas; Bertalmío, Marcelo (SIAM (Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics), 2014)
    We present a generalization of the Euclidean and Riemannian gradient operators to a vector bundle, a geometric structure generalizing the concept of manifold. One of the key ideas is to replace the standard differentiation ...
  • Biglieri, Ezio; Hong, Yi; Viterbo, Emanuele (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2009)
    We focus on full-rate, fast-decodable space–time block codes (STBCs) for 2 x 2 and 4 x 2 multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) transmission. We first derive conditions and design criteria for reduced-complexity maximum-likelihood ...
  • Sezginer, Serdar; Sari, Hikmet; Biglieri, Ezio (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2009)
    The 2×2 MIMO profiles included in Mobile WiMAX specifications are Alamouti’s space-time code (STC) fortransmit diversity and spatial multiplexing (SM). The former has/nfull diversity and the latter has full rate, but neither ...
  • Andriyanova, Iryna; Biglieri, Ezio; Boutros, Joseph Jean (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2010)
    This paper presents our investigation on iterative/ndecoding performances of some sparse-graph codes on block-fading Rayleigh channels. The considered code ensembles are standard LDPC codes and Root-LDPC codes, first ...
  • Costa, Albert, 1970-; Vives, Marc-Lluís; Corey, Joanna Darrow, 1986- (SAGE Publications, 2017)
    Recent research has revealed that people’s preferences, choices, and judgments are affected by whether information is presented in a foreign or a native language. Here, we review this evidence, focusing on various ...
  • Branzi, Francesca Martina; Calabria, Marco; Gade, Miriam; Fuentes, Luis J.; Costa, Albert, 1970- (Cambridge University Press, 2018)
    In one task-switching experiment, we compared bilinguals and monolinguals to explore the reliability of the bilingualism effect on the n-2 repetition cost. In a second taskswitching experiment, we tested another group of ...
  • 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 ...
  • Sayago Barrantes, Sergio; Rosales, Andrea; Righi, Valeria; Ferreira, Susan M.; Coleman, Graham Keith (SAGE Publications, 2016)
    While older people tend to be regarded as actual, or potential, players of digital games within literature on Game Studies, Human-Computer Interaction and Gerontechnologu, they are also often considered non-avid users of ...
  • Farrús, Mireia; Garde, Ainara; Ejarque, Pascual; Luque, Jordi; Hernando, Javier (International Speech Communication Association (ISCA), 2006)
    Comunicació presentada a: 9th International Conference on Spoken Language Processing; 17-21 de setembre de 2006 a Pittsburgh, Estats Units d'Amèrica
  • El Ayach, Omar; Lozano Solsona, Angel; Heath, R. W., Jr. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2012)
    Interference alignment (IA) is a cooperative transmission strategy that, under some conditions,/nachieves the interference channel’s maximum number of degrees of freedom. Realizing IA gains,/nhowever, is contingent upon ...
  • Branzi, Francesca Martina, 1984-; Calabria, Marco; Boscarino, Maria Lucrezia; Costa, Albert (Elsevier, 2016)
    We explored the overlap between bilingual language control (bLC) and domain-general executive control (EC) by focusing on inhibitory control processes. We tested 62 bilinguals in linguistic and non-linguistic switching ...
  • Sukno, Federico Mateo; Rojas, Mario A.; Waddington, John L.; Whelan, Paul F. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2015)
    We address a systematic evaluation of facial asymmetry from a population of 100 high-quality laser scans, which are first symmetrized and then manipulated to introduce 25 synthetic patterns with a variety of asymmetries. ...
  • Carrillo, José; Caselles, Vicente; Moll, Salvador (London Mathematical Society, 2013)
    We study the relativistic heat equation in one space dimension. We prove a local regularity result when the initial datum is locally Lipschitz in its support. We propose a numerical scheme that captures the known features ...
  • Timmer, Kalinka; Calabria, Marco; Branzi, Francesca Martina, 1984-; Baus, Cristina; Costa, Albert, 1970- (Frontiers, 2018)
    Bilingual speakers are suggested to use control processes to avoid linguistic interference from the unintended language. It is debated whether these bilingual language control (BLC) processes are an instantiation of the ...
  • Domínguez Bajo, Mónica; Burga Díaz, Alicia; Farrús, Mireia; Wanner, Leo (CEUR Workshop Proceedings, 2018)
    Conversational technologies that assist elderly people need to adapt to common disabilities in old age. Visual, hearing and even more so cognitive impairments pose serious difficulties for our seniors to handle a standard ...
  • Runnqvist, Elin; Strijkers, Kristof; Sadat Schaffai, Jasmin, 1982-; Costa, Albert, 1970- (Frontiers Media, 2011)
    Despite a large amount of psycholinguistic research devoted to the issue of processing differences between a first and a second language, there is no consensus regarding the locus where these emerge or the mechanism behind ...
  • Baus, Cristina; Costa, Albert, 1970- (Elsevier, 2015)
    This study investigates the temporal dynamics of sign production and how particular aspects of the signed modality influence the early stages of lexical access. To that end, we explored the electrophysiological correlates ...
  • Dzhambazov, Georgi Bogomilov; Srinivasamurthy, Ajay; Sentürk, Sertan; Serra, Xavier (International Society for Music Information Retrieval (ISMIR), 2016)
    Lyrics-to-audio alignment aims to automatically match given lyrics and musical audio. In this work we extend a state of the art approach for lyrics-to-audio alignment with information about note onsets. In particular, ...
