Validation in Flood Risk Modelling: combining scientific, policy and market perspectives

 

Politecnico di Milano - 20 - 21 November 2017

 

Although often-neglected, model validation is a key topic in flood risk analysis, as flood risk assessments are presently characterised by significant levels of uncertainty. Indeed, since large investments for flood risk reduction are made based on flood risk estimates and maps, decision makers must be aware of the limitations of accuracy of risk models.

In December 2014, an expert workshop was held in Delft, The Netherlands, under the auspices of the European Geosciences Union (EGU). On that occasion, over 50 experts from 10 countries discussed model validation with respect to all the elements of flood risk analysis, namely (1) hazard and inundation modelling, (2) failure and reliability modelling of flood defences, (3) flood damage modelling, and (4) the integration of hazards, failures and damage to compute risk.

In continuity with the workshop, a special session was organised at the Third European Conference on Flood Risk Management (FloodRisk 2016) in Lyon, France, on 19  October 2016. The session brought together scientists, policy makers and representatives from the insurance sector to discuss the key challenges in flood  hazard estimation and risk assessment, with a focus on the need to pay more attention to model validation. The most important conclusion from the events was that the lack of observational data is the main limitation to perform validation. As a consequence, the standardised collection of data on hazard, failure and impacts should be promoted and must become a common practice after every flood event. Meanwhile, the need of proposing benchmarks for the set-up of hazard, failure and impact analyses validation arose, in order to promote the adoption of “good” validation practices by both researchers and practitioners. With respect to this, a greater commitment of end-users into the debate on flood risk models validation is desirable, in order to tailor validation practices towards real needs.

In continuity with the previous initiatives, in this workshop we want first to understand whether there have been significant improvements in the state of art of flood model validation, with respect to what emerged three years ago; this implies also the analysis of changes in research needs.  Particular emphasis will be put on the two main critical aspects emerged in the first workshop, that is data collection and benchmarking.

Further, we want to extend the audience to policy makers and the insurance sector as the main stakeholders involved in flood risk management; we want to discuss with them on the key challenges in flood risk assessment, with a special focus on the need to pay attention to model validation.

In this workshop, we will work together to update the state-of-the art in flood risk assessment as well as in the priorities for the research agenda on flood risk models validation.

Transforming care conference 2017: Innovation and sustainability

This conference is aimed at investigating how care is transforming in these turbulent, multifaceted and changing contexts. It focuses on the tensions between policy and social innovation in care policies on the one hand, and pressures for financial and social sustainability of care systems on the other. Care policies not only need to respond to changing care needs by providing good quality services, but also to be financially and socially sustainable, also in a long-term and inter-generational perspective, and from the perspectives of care users, their families and paid care workers. This is a difficult challenge for policies as well as for informal and formal care practices, with strong implications as to how care services and care work are organized and provided.

Envisioning the City of the Future: Making the Invisible Visible

Envisioning the sharing society and city of the future is the goal of the international competition open to students, graduates and professionals. Participants are asked to imagine and design possible scenarios of the city of the future, starting from the values that the “sharing society” is promoting: How will smart and sharing cities look like in the future? How are these changes going to impact on people’s lives in cities?

The area of interest is the open space and the street facing the Smart City Lab which is going to be built in via Ripamonti 88 in Milan in 2018 by the Municipality of Milan. This new urban service will become a business incubator in support of start-ups working on smart city projects and an urban hub open to the public.

Participants will have to produce spherical panoramas of these scenarios. Simulations of the selected projects will be presented in an immersive way to a wide audience using Head Mounted Displays during the final event (June 2017).

    PRESENTATION OF THE COMPETITION

    The competition is an initiative promoted by the Urban Simulation Laboratory ‘Fausto Curti’ - labsimurb of the Department of Architecture and Urban Studies - DAStU of the Polytechnic University of Milan - POLIMI; it aims at involving students, graduates and experts to imagine the city of the future. The initiative works in synergy with the values and the objectives of the European project Sharing Cities (S.C.), of which labsimurb is leader in the co-design process, which involves citizens and stakeholders, of novel smart and urban services.

    Participants are asked to imagine and design possible scenarios of the city of the future, starting from the values that the “sharing society” is promoting: How will smart and sharing cities look like in the future? How are these changes going to impact on people’s lives in cities?

    The international competition is open to students, graduates and professionals. The participation in the competition requires a fee of € 30 for each group (which has to identify a leader). The group can be composed by a single person (i.e. the group leader). The competition has two different evaluation phases, as described in the paragraphs “Important Dates and References” and “Materials required”.

    The international jury will award the most innovative projects. The first classified will win one ArchiCad 20 Full licence and one Lumion Standard licence (corresponding value € 6.289). Moreover, the three winning projects will win three annual subscriptions to charging stations for electric vehicles (provided by NHP); these stations will be implemented within the European project Sharing Cities.

    PRESENTAZIONE DEL CONCORSO

    Il concorso è un’iniziativa promossa dal Laboratorio di Simulazione Urbana ‘Fausto Curti’ (labsimurb) del Dipartimento di Architettura e Studi Urbani (DAStU) del Politecnico di Milano (POLIMI) con l’obiettivo di coinvolgere studenti, neolaureati e professionisti nell’immaginare la città del futuro. Questa iniziativa lavora in sinergia con i valori e gli obiettivi del progetto Europeo Sharing Cities (S.C.), per cui labsimurb guida il processo di co-progettazione che coinvolge cittadini e portatori di interesse.
    Ai partecipanti è richiesto di immaginare e produrre scenari futuribili a partire dai principi che il paradigma della “società della condivisione” (sharing society) sta promuovendo: quale sarà il volto delle città intelligenti (smart) e in condivisione (sharing)? Questi sviluppi influenzeranno il modo in cui viviamo e progettiamo le città e se sì, come?

    Il concorso ha un carattere internazionale ed è rivolto a studenti, neolaureati e professionisti. La partecipazione al concorso prevede una quota di iscrizione pari a €30 per gruppo iscritto (previa identificazione del capofila); il gruppo può essere composto anche da una singola persona (ovvero il capofila). Il concorso è diviso in due fasi di valutazione, come descritto nella sezione “Date importanti e riferimenti utili” e “Elaborati richiesti”.

    La giuria internazionale premierà i progetti più innovativi. Il primo classificato riceverà in premio una licenza ArchiCad 20 Full  e una licenza Lumion Standard (valore corrispettivo € 6.289). I primi tre classificati, inoltre, riceveranno in premio tre abbonamenti annuali ai punti di ricarica per veicoli elettrici (forniti da NHP) che saranno realizzati nell’ambito del progetto europeo Sharing Cities.

    Introduction, Motivation and Aims

     

    The PhD course LIFE2MATH: A MATHEMATICAL SHUTTLE FROM MOLECULES TO NEURONS TO FUNCTIONS AND BACK (shortly, LIFE2MATH) builds upon the following past initiatives activated at Politecnico di Milano (shortly, PoliMi):

    1. Workshop "Integrated Multidisciplinary Approaches in the Study and Care of the Human Eye", Dip. di Matematica Univ. degli Studi di Milano, Dip. di Matematica PoliMi: 26-27 June 2013,http://www.mat.unimi.it/retinaworkshop13/
    2. PhD Course: "Multiscale Modeling of Interface Phenomena in Biology",      Dip. di Matematica PoliMi: 17-21 March 2014
    3. PhD Course: "Multidisciplinary Approaches in the Study of Biological Fluids and Tissues: Mathematical Modeling and Clinical Experience", Dip.to di Matematica, PoliMi: 20-24 April 2015 (https://www.eko.polimi.it/index.php/EyePhD2015/EyePhD2015)

    The principal aims of LIFE2MATH are:

     

    A1: to disentangle the thread that connects the molecular level in the human body to the development of a nerve signal and its transduction into a specific life function, such as vision, thought, heartbeat and movement;

    A2: to translate the result of aim A1 into a mathematical modeling set-up built upon systems of partial and/or ordinary differential equations (PDEs/ODEs) that express the conservation of relevant physical entities such as mass, momentum and energy of a fluid, or the total electrical current  of a nerve impulse;

    A3: to numerically solve the PDEs/ODEs illustrated in aim A2 through appropriately selected methodologies that, besides being stable and accurate, are capable to reproduce at the discrete level the main conservation properties of the biophysical system under investigation;

    A4: to provide participants a concrete view of the “big picture” analyzed in aims A1-A3 through the access and on-site visit to the Laboratory of Life Support Systems (Director: Prof. Maria L. Costantino) and the Mechanobiology Lab (Director and Founding Head: Prof. Manuela T. Raimondi), which are both part of the LaBS (Laboratory of Biological Structure Mechanics) at PoliMi.



    Course Organization

     

    The course belongs to the category “con docenza straniera” (foreign instructors for more than 15 lecture hours, of interest to more than one doctorate) and comprises a total number of 32 hours (5ECTs), divided into:

     

    1. 8 hours devoted to illustrating the biophysical and mathematical modeling of the molecular level, the development of a nerve signal, its transduction through the nerve fibers, the (conceptual) connection of biological signal processing with Micro and NanoElectronics and its role in the physiology of eye vision and brain function. This part of the course will be held by Prof. R.S. Eisenberg.

    2. 8 hours devoted to illustrating the biophysical and mathematical modeling of blood flow in the body vasculature system, with special emphasis on the microcirculation in the eye, the fluid-mechanical dynamic interaction between flow and arterial wall deformation, nutrient transport and delivery to the surrounding tissue and its (conceptual) connection with the Kirchhoff law of conservation of electrical current. This part of the course will be held by Prof. G. Guidoboni.

    3. 6 hours devoted to illustrating the numerical schemes used for temporal and spatial discretization of the models and their computer implementation. A number of examples will be thoroughly analyzed during hands-on sessions that will allow participants to verify the performance of the algorithms and interpret the biophysical reliability of the obtained results. This part of the course will be held by Dr. A.G. Mauri.

    4. 4 hours devoted to introductory lectures and on-site visit to the Laboratory of Life Support Systems (LLSS) and the Mechanobiology Lab (ML). This part of the course will be held by Prof. M.L. Costantino, Prof.M.T. Raimondi and Prof. C. Giordano.

    5. 2 hours devoted to a closing lecture addressing the principal open questions in the clinical applications for the study, treatment and cure of the diseases of the eye with particular emphasis on neurodegenerative pathologies such as the Open Angle Glaucoma. This part of the course will be held by Prof. A. Harris.

    6. 4 hours devoted to student assistance in the development of projects and to final evaluation. This part of the course will be held by course director and instructors.



    Final Exam

     

    To receive the credits for the LIFE2MATH Interdoctoral PhD Course, each student has to pass a final exam which will consist of writing a project report on a specific subject previously agreed with one of the instructors. In the preparation of the report, flexibility will be admitted in focusing on theoretical or on numerical issues, the combination of the two being strongly encouraged and welcome.

Third International Symposium on FATIGUE DESIGN and MATERIAL DEFECTS

The fatigue properties of materials/components are usually controlled by the presence of defects due to the manufacturing process that significantly reduce the fatigue strength and service life with respect to the theoretical values of a material. In general, the presence of defects accelerates the initial phase of fatigue damage, a process that involves a volume of a few microstructural units.

Therefore, non-metallic inclusions with dimensions of the order of ten microns play a key role in the fatigue strength of bearings and springs. Microfolds and oxide entrapments with dimensions of the order of 100 microns can be critical for the fatigue properties of forged components. Inhomogeneities and defects (gas pores, cavities) of larger size affect the quality of metal castings and modern Additive Manufacturing processes.

 

The concepts of defect tolerant design, developed more than 20 years ago, aim to cover the gap between simple stress-based design approaches with generous safety factors, the methods developed for fracture assessment of components and NDE requirements.

The ability to predict fatigue properties and service life of components in relation to their manufacturing process is of special interest also for the modern Additive Manufacturing (AM) processes, whose rapid evolution needs efficient tools for product development, fatigue assessment and component qualifications.

 

Following the successful symposia of Trondheim in 2011 and Paris in 2014, these topics will be discussed at the Third International Symposium on Fatigue Design and Material Defects - 3, to be held in September 2017 in Lecco, Italy.

    PROB2016 - Corso di Formazione per docenti di Scuola Secondaria: "Modelli probabilistici"

    Ciclo di lezioni del prof. Marco Bramanti

     

    Informazioni generali

    Struttura del corso. 5 incontri di 3 ore l'uno, dalle 14.30 alle 17.30, nell'aula informatizzata del Dipartimento di Matematica del Politecnico di Milano, Via Bonardi 9, Milano, nei giorni seguenti:
    lunedì 7, 14, 21 marzo, 4, 11 aprile 2016

    Obiettivo generale e stile del corso
    Il corso, come dice il titolo, si concentrerà principalmente su alcuni argomenti di calcolo delle probabilità che in base alle attuali indicazioni nazionali dovrebbero essere insegnati nell'ultimo anno dei Licei, ossia i "modelli probabilistici", come la legge binomiale, la legge di Poisson, la legge normale, ecc. Rispetto alle precedenti edizioni di corsi di formazione di calcolo delle probabilità e statistica tenuti da "effediesse", questo si differenzia per il fatto di coprire un numero molto più ristretto di argomenti, con l'intento di poter dare più spazio a esempi ed esercizi svolti in dettaglio. Gli argomenti saranno presentati in una forma rigorosa ma non più generale o astratta di quanto richieda l'insegnamento scolastico. Ci si soffermerà sugli aspetti critici e didattici, si suggeriranno dei possibili percorsi da seguire, ci sarà naturalmente spazio per la discussione e la condivisione delle esperienze e convinzioni didattiche dei partecipanti.

    Sommario del corso
    1. Introduzione metodologica e didattica sull'insegnamento della probabilità a scuola, con richiami essenziali (non una trattazione dettagliata) sul percorso di calcolo delle probabilità nei primi anni di liceo.
    2. Generalità sulle variabili aleatorie discrete: variabili aleatorie, legge, densità discreta, valore atteso e sua proprietà. Esempi tipici di leggi discrete, in particolare processo di Bernoulli e legge binomiale, legge di Poisson. Svolgimento di esempi ed esercizi tipici in questo contesto e illustrazione dei significati modellistici di queste leggi.
    3. Generalità sulle variabili aleatorie continue. Esempi tipici di variabili aleatorie continue.
    4. Varianza di una variabile aleatoria e sue principali proprietà.
    5. Legge normale standard, leggi normali, significati modellistici ed esempi di impiego di questa legge.
    6. (Se il tempo lo consentirà). Concetto di campione casuale, variabile aleatoria "media campionaria", cenni alla legge dei grandi numeri, al teorema limite centrale e applicazioni.

    Informazioni varie
    Sarà rilasciato un attestato di partecipazione a tutti coloro che avranno firmato la presenza ad almeno 4 incontri su 5, indipendentemente dai motivi delle eventuali assenze.
    Saranno fornite ai partecipanti indicazioni bibliografiche e sarà fornita almeno una parte del materiale didattico utilizzato per le lezioni (slides, ecc.).

ALCUNE PROPOSTE DIDATTICHE PER LA PRESENTAZIONE DELLA GEOMETRIA NELLO SPAZIO NELLA SCUOLA SECONDARIA SUPERIORE

Dai programmi di geometria del secondo biennio, e da quelli riguardanti il quinto anno, non si evincono particolari suggerimenti riguardanti l’articolazione logica dei contenuti, i quali vengono descritti attraverso uno scarno elenco di temi proposti.

Spicca tuttavia l’indicazione esplicita di “approfondire la comprensione della specificità dei due approcci (sintetico e analitico) allo studio della geometria”.

Da questa indicazione si possono trarre due deduzioni. Innanzitutto che i due approcci (sintetico e analitico) devono essere stati già presentati e discussi nel primo biennio, poi che la menzionata specificità sembra implicarne l’incomunicabilità reciproca.

Questo induce a classificare, e a trattare separatamente, argomenti e problemi di tipo sintetico e di tipo analitico. Oltre all’impoverimento culturale che ne deriva, si corre il rischio di privilegiare uno dei due approcci rispetto all’altro.

Prendendo spunto da queste osservazioni, il Corso si propone di suggerire una selezione di argomenti che possono essere trattati in parallelo nel piano e nello spazio, e seguendo un approccio misto analitico-sintetico che permette di affrontare le stesse questioni da diversi punti di vista.

    Instructors

    This course will be taught by three instructors who are faculty members at Indiana University (Indianapolis, IN, USA).
    These instructors have complementary expertise spanning clinical and mathematical perspectives:

    Dr. Julia Arciero, Department of Mathematical Sciences, Indiana University - Purdue University at Indianapolis (IUPUI).
    Prof. Giovanna Guidoboni, Department of Mathematical Sciences, Indiana University - Purdue University at Indianapolis (IUPUI).
    Prof. Alon Harris, Director of Clinical Research, Eugene and Marilyn Glick Eye Institute, Department of Ophthalmology, Indiana University School of Medicine.

     

    Course Description

    This course covers a variety of mathematical methods for modeling biological fluids and tissues. Theoretical concepts will be applied to various areas of anatomy and physiology, with a particular emphasis on the human eye since Drs. Arciero, Guidoboni and Harris have an established collaboration that combines their mathematical and clinical expertise to explain the relationship between eye mechanics and hemodynamics and glaucoma incidence and progression.

     

    Main Features

    The scientific strength and broad impact of the course are a direct result of the following three factors that govern the approach of the course.

    - Interdisciplinary approach: The course material requires an in-depth study of topics in mathematics, engineering, physiology and medicine.  The material will be presented by experts in these different disciplines who have established a successful interdisciplinary collaboration on the human eye.

    - International approach: The three instructors are faculty at Indiana University and they are not affiliated with any Italian institution.  This course developed naturally as a result of the international and interdisciplinary workshop entitled "Integrated Multidisciplinary Approaches in the Study and Care of the Human Eye," which was held in Milano, 26-27 June 2013 (web site: http://www.mat.unimi.it/retinaworkshop13/). The workshop was attended by mathematicians, engineers, clinical scientists and medical doctors, and it attracted faculty as well as graduate and undergraduate students from Italy, Israel and the USA.

    - Research approach:  The established collaborative research currently being conducted among the three instructors will naturally feed into the course material. Drs. Arciero, Guidoboni and Harris have  developed the first mathematical models capable of qualitatively and quantitatively describing the relationship between intraocular pressure (IOP), blood pressure, blood flow autoregulation and retinal blood flow. These mathematical models have been used to interpret clinical data and resolve a long-standing controversy in the field of ophthalmology related to whether or not IOP elevation would induce a reduction in retinal blood flow in every individual.  Their research is currently funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF). Drs. Arciero, Guidoboni and Harris have also recently started collaborating with Dr. Riccardo Sacco (Politecnico di Milano) on the development of mathematical models for the biophysics of retinal blood flow regulation. This international collaboration between IUPUI, the Indiana University School of Medicine and Politecnico di Milano has been officially stipulated funded by the NSF through an international supplement to their currently active NSF grant

Three days on Geometric PDE's

The conference will consist in two minicourses on Geometric PDE’s:

1) Geometric aspects of nonlinear PDE’s: symmetry, splitting and overdetermined boundary value problems (Alberto Farina - Université de Picardie).

2) An introduction to the Ricci flow (Zindine Djadli - Université de Grenoble)

  • Three days on Geometric PDE's

    March 11, 2015 – March 13, 2015

     

    An introduction to the Ricci flow


    Zindine Djadli (Université de Grenoble)
    The goal of these lectures is to give a short introduction to the Ricci flow. First we motivate the introduction of the Ricci flow and present the main results about short time existence and the maximum principle. Then we focus on the main steps of the proof of Hamilton's theorem on 3-manifolds with positive Ricci curvature. At the beginning of the lectures we will recall the basic notions of Riemannian geometry we need.


    Geometric aspects of nonlinear PDEs: symmetry, splitting and overdetermined problems


    Alberto Farina (Université de Picardie)
    We present a unified approach to splitting theorems, symmetry results and overdetermined nonlinear elliptic problems in the general setting of non-compact Riemannian manifolds with non-negative Ricci curvature.

IFW2015 – Interiors Forum World 2015 3rd International Conference Nomadic Interiors Living and inhabiting in an age of m

Identity and diversity – whether cultural, ethnic, religious or political – mark our contemporary global context on a daily basis. We live in an age that might be defined by migration, of population flow, by the movement of people, of information, of knowledge… From continent to continent, from nation to nation, from region to region, from city to city, individuals or groups of people overcome geographic borders and cultural or linguistic barriers in search of an economic comfort zone; for a new lease on life for their children; as well as for study purposes; for tourism or to experience new lifestyles and social relations.

Proximity, Hybridization, Multiculturalism, Mobility, Identity, Diversity seem to characterize spaces for contemporary life, culture, training, hospitality, leisure, work, commerce and social relations.

- How much have the concepts of place and identity changed in the age of migrations and multiculturalism?

- How have the concept of inhabiting and its forms changed in a condition of global nomadism?

- What new spaces and architectures are generated by the idea and practice of nomadism?

- How much has the collective space of a society, marked by the intensification of mobility, changed?

- What effects did the new technologies of access to knowledge have on spaces and shapes of places for culture, museums, libraries, schools, universities?

- How the idea of contemporary interior has changed and how is it being modified?

- How to redefine the theory and practice of the project of Interior between globalism and localism?

These are some of the questions which Interiors Forum World 2015 «Nomadic Interiors – living and inhabiting in an age of migrations» poses and aims to seek contributions for critical input.

 

  • Interiors Forum World 2015

    May 21, 2015 – May 22, 2015

    Identity and diversity – whether cultural, ethnic, religious or political – mark our contemporary global context on a daily basis. We live in an age that might be defined by migration, of population flow, by the movement of people, of information, of knowledge… From continent to continent, from nation to nation, from region to region, from city to city, individuals or groups of people overcome geographic borders and cultural or linguistic barriers in search of an economic comfort zone; for a new lease on life for their children; as well as for study purposes; for tourism or to experience new lifestyles and social relations.

    Old and new nomads, inscribe traces, invisible or real, on the places they cross and where they stop, generating linguistic, cultural, lifestyle contaminations. They remark, delete or reconfigure their identity, absorbing or rejecting differences. By traveling and stopping – temporarily or permanently – they retrace paths followed by others or design new ones. It's a movement of global intensification that configures ways of living, inhabiting, and being in the world.

    Obiettivi del corso
    Le nuove indicazioni nazionali prevedono l'insegnamento di elementi di Calcolo Infinitesimale (o “analisi matematica”) nell'ultimo anno di tutti i licei. Per gli insegnanti di matematica dei licei non scientifici si tratta di una novità, che cambierà una prassi consolidata di insegnamento e non mancherà di suscitare interrogativi e disagi. Nelle indicazioni nazionali per i licei scientifici, inoltre, fa ora la sua comparsa il tema delle equazioni differenziali. Questo corso, giunto ormai alla sua quarta edizione, vuole essere un momento di formazione e di confronto per gli insegnanti di matematica dell’ultimo anno di tutti i licei.

    Contenuto del corso
    Motivazioni per insegnare l’analisi nei licei, obiettivi, ruolo della teoria e dell’esercizio. Introduzione storica al calcolo infinitesimale. I concetti di limite per successioni e funzioni, la continuità. Il concetto di derivata e il calcolo differenziale, le equazioni differenziali. Il calcolo integrale. In questa edizione si darà spazio soprattutto al calcolo differenziale (compreso l’argomento delle equazioni differenziali) e al calcolo integrale, senza dilungarci troppo, invece, sull’argomento del calcolo dei limiti. Nel trattare i vari argomenti si darà spazio anche alla discussione sugli aspetti didattici in senso stretto: percorsi logici preferibili, tipologie di esercizi preferibili, gerarchia di importanza tra i vari argomenti, scelta di esempi significativi, relazioni con la fisica, con la probabilità, con gli argomenti matematici trattati negli anni precedente, ecc., anche alla luce dell’esperienza didattica dei partecipanti.

    It focus on the use of digital technologies and generative software in the design of innovative forms and materials, particularly those which integrate responsive architecture and physical movement.

    It aims also to offer a direct approach to testing research/lerning processes and tools that involve the management of environmental stimuli as parameters for the design of complex morphologies with responsive components. It concerns the integration of tools and open source platforms in the areas of Physical Computing, algorithmic modelling and robotic fabrication.
    Finally, it aims to promote the international meeting (and discussion) of teachers, researchers, scholars and PHD candidates that are working on different topics about computer aided design methods and applications.

    Generative design tools and digital fabrication technologies develop innovative concepts from organic models and historical references. Shell, lattice- and grid-structures underpin patterns and surface textures. The knowledge of harmonic relationships in nature’s being can be trace to Vitruvian principles and later Renaissance thinkers. In nineteenth and twentieth century the knowledge of biological systems provided the inspiration to theoreticians such as Theodore Cook, D’Arcy W. Thomson, E. Haekel, J. Hambidge, M. Ghyka and K. Ctitchlow, and designers such as R. Buckminister Fuller and Le Corbusier.
    Computational design applies patterns and textures, as well as the concept of proportion and balance, at the nano-, micro- and macro-levels: basic rules of order appear behind the complexe forms of contemporary visual arts, industrial design and architecture.

    The Organizing Committee is pleased to invite you to submit papers and/or proposal for a workshop. Papers and workshop proposals will be will be submitted to blind peer review system from which twenty presenters will be selected for oral presentations (15’) in the Simposium, other accepted papers will be presented in the poster session.

RART2015

Riordan arrays have been introduced in 1991 by L. W. Shapiro, S. Getu, W. J. Woan and L. Woodson with the aim of defining a class of infinite lower triangular arrays with properties analogous to those of the Pascal triangle nd since then they have attracted, and continue to attract, much attention in the literature. In particular, the algebraic tructure of these matrices, their relationship with the computation of combinatorial sums and many combinatorial applications have been studied over the years. 
The minisymposium "Riordan arrays and Related Topics" gathers together  researchers from all over the globe world to present some of their most important recent results on the theory and applications of Riordan arrays and the Riordan group.

InActionWithMath

In Action with Math si propone come percorso  formativo parallelo rispetto all’attività scolastica regolare.  Ha il duplice scopo di:

  • suscitare nei ragazzi la consapevolezza dell’efficacia delle idee matematiche nella risoluzione di problemi concreti, nell’interpretazione e modellazione di alcuni fenomeni reali;
  • invitare i ragazzi a “vivere” un’esperienza di apprendimento e di  applicazione della matematica da attori propositivi, protagonisti di una sinergia teorico/sperimentale.

    Quale matematica?

     

    Le linee guida nella creazione dei percorsi formativi del progetto si riconducono al desiderio di trasmettere ai giovani una percezione delle idee e dei concetti matematici non più esoterica e per pochi eletti bensì strettamente legata all’attuale sviluppo sociale, ambientale e tecnologico.
    Fino alla metà del XX secolo le discipline matematiche più conosciute, come la Geometria, l’Analisi Matematica, il Calcolo delle Probabilità,laTeoria dei Numeri, trovavano naturale applicazione principalmente nell’ambito dellaFisica.
    Da allora, nuovi settori della matematica, quali per esempio la Biomatematica, l’Ecologia Matematica, l’Economia o la Finanza Matematica e altri ancora, si sono sviluppati in forte sinergia con le scienze applicate e l’ingegneria. La matematica del XXI secolo, pur mantenendosi fedele alle sue caratteristiche di astrazione, è in grado di intervenire nelle sfide che la tecnologia e la maggior parte delle scienze applicate presentano, fornendo soluzioni, strumenti di predizione e controllo o chiavi di lettura/interpretazione.


    Chi l’avrebbe sospettato?

    Attualmente la modellazione matematica è adottata per analizzare problemi in ambiti impensabili sino a qualche decennio fa: dalla progettazione dell’ala di un velivolo, all’ottimizzazione delle prestazioni di barche da competizione o di una rete di distribuzione dell’energia; dall’analisi fluidodinamica del sangue nelle arterie allo scopo di prevenire gravi occlusioni o ottimizzare la durata di un by-pass, alla ricostruzione di immagini per la diagnosi medica (tomografie, risonanze magnetiche); dall’analisi della diffusione/trasporto di inquinanti alle previsioni meteo.


    In che cosa si cimenteranno gli studenti?

    Con strumenti matematici idonei e con l’ausilio di software adeguati, studenti della scuola secondaria di secondo grado si troveranno a compattare messaggi elettronici o ad analizzare l’andamento di una popolazione o l’efficacia di un test per l’immatricolazione.
    I più giovani (allievi della scuola secondaria di primo grado) si troveranno ad individuare ed interpretare traiettorie di un pallone da calcio, oltre che astrarre forme geometriche da osservazioni e sperimentazioni dirette in vari ambiti. Potranno inoltre incontrare i primi elementi del Calcolo delle Probabilità per fare esperienza del ragionamento probabilistico a supporto di decisioni in condizioni di incertezza.
    Saranno poi gli studenti stessi, con l’ausilio dei docenti d’aula, a scegliere approfondimenti e/o sperimentazioni nelle direzioni che risulteranno loro più congeniali.

    International conference: "Corporate Governance: a Search for Advanced Standards in the Wake of Crisis", May 8, 2014


    An economic crisis has shown lack of attention to crucial issues in governance business entities. Recommendations for corporate governance enforcement have been proposed by business community, society and regulators. However, risks, performance, reporting and corporate control issues are still under the discussion. With respect to this role of legal environment in establishing appropriate solutions for corporate governance effectiveness is relevant. It is clear that corporate governance enforcement and other legal issues is an increasingly important area of focus and substantial discussion should be arranged. Understanding that real business conditions can differ from theoretical models proposed by science, that’s why it’s important to form a platform for practitioners and theorists to outline main challenges and prospective solutions for improving corporate governance world.

    The broad key topics of this international conference include:

    - Corporate governance enforcement
    - Corporate law
    - Corporate governance regulation and reforms
    - Financial system after the crises and regulatory changes
    - Accounting disclosure, earning management, and corporate transparency issues
    - Board practices
    - Audit practices
    - Risk management
    - Executives compensations
    - Corporate control

    CIMODE main commitment is to contribute to the development and diffusion of scientific studies in Fashion and Design. The event, planned to be held every two years in different Latin-speaking countries (European and American countries of Latin expression), is dedicated to the discussion of the research and the teaching of Fashion and Design studies and intends to be an important forum for discussion of issues relevant to the progression of knowledge in these areas. Being an inter and trans-disciplinary Congress, CIMODE seeks to explore Fashion and Design from a social, cultural, psychological and communicational perspective, trying to bring together different approaches and points of view about the practice, teaching and the culture of Design and Fashion.
