  • Eeckhout, Jan; Jovanovic, Boyan (Elsevier, 2012)
    The rise in world trade since 1970 has been accompanied by a rise in the geographic span of control of management and, hence, also a rise in the e ective international mobility of labor services. We study the e ect of such ...
  • Lytras, Theodoros, 1987-; Kogevinas, Manolis; Carsin, Anne-Elie; Antó i Boqué, Josep Maria; García Aymerich, Judith; Zock, Jan-Paul (BMJ Publishing Group, 2018)
    Background: Occupational exposures have been associated with an increased risk of COPD. However, few studies have related objectively assessed occupational exposures to prospectively assessed incidence of COPD, using ...
  • Quer, Josep, 1965- (De Gruyter, 2018)
    Role shift is the widespread phenomenon in sign languages whereby a signer reports utterances, thoughts or actions of a character in another context by resorting to a possibly very rich array of nonmanual markers that ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • Baudoin, Fabrice; Nualart, Eulàlia; Ouyang, Cheng; Tindel, Samy (Institute of Mathematical Statistics (IMS), 2016)
    This article investigates several properties related to densities of solutions (Xt)t∈[0,1] to differential equations driven by a fractional Brownian motion with Hurst parameter H>1/4. We first determine conditions for ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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, 1970- (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 ...
  • Cormier, Andrée Anne (Taylor & Francis (Routledge), 2017)
    According to Harry Brighouse and Adam Swift, parents have a limited and conditional moral right to deliberately shape their children’s values and interests in light of their own particular comprehensive convictions. Their ...
  • 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. ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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, ...
  • Stojanovic, Isidora, 1973- (Wiley-Blackwell, 2012)
    This paper is driven by the idea that the contextualism-relativism debate regarding the semantics of value-attributions turns upon certain extra-semantic assumptions that are unwarranted. One is the assumption that the ...
  • Deco, Gustavo; Jirsa, Viktor K. (Society for Neuroscience, 2012)
    The ongoing activity of the brain at rest, i.e., under no stimulation and in absence of any task, is astonishingly highly structured into/nspatiotemporal patterns. These spatiotemporal patterns, called resting state networks, ...
  • Meditskos, Georgios; Kontopoulos, Efstratios; Vrochidis, Stefanos; Kompatsiaris, Ioannis (CEUR Workshop Proceedings (CEUR-WS.org), 2016)
    In this paper we present a framework for conversational awareness and conflict resolution in spoken dialogue systems for home care assistance. Conver-sational awareness is supported through OWL ontologies for capturing ...
  • Speck, René; Röder, Michael; Oramas, Sergio; Espinosa-Anke, Luis; Ngonga Ngomo, Axel-Cyrille (Springer, 2017)
    The Open Knowledge Extraction Challenge invites researchers and practitioners from academia as well as industry to compete to the aim of pushing further the state of the art of knowledge extraction from text for the Semantic ...
