Substance use among youth continues to be a public health concern. Effective prevention options require up-to-date and relevant theoretical frameworks and empirical studies that can help explain the etiology and correlates of substance use. The current proposal aims to develop the “Substance Use Normalization Theory” which is a promising and novel theoretical framework to explain adolescent substa ...

Data Science for Simulating the Era of Electric Vehicles (DATA SIM)

Start date: 01 Sep 2011, End date: 31 Aug 2014,

DATA SIM aims at providing an entirely new and highly detailed spatio-temporal microsimulation methodology for human mobility, grounded on massive amounts of big data of various types and from various sources, with the goal to forecast the nation-wide consequences of a massive switch to electric vehicles, given the intertwined nature of mobility and power distribution networks.While the increasing ...

"Signalling at nerve cell synapses - a key determinant of all aspects of brain function - depends on the function of hundreds of synaptic proteins and their interactions. Numerous recent studies showed that a wide range of neurological and psychiatric diseases are 'synaptopathies' whose onset and progression are due to mutations of synaptic proteins and subsequent synaptic dysfunctions. EUROSPIN w ...

Extrinsic Geometric Flows on Foliated Manifolds (EGFLOW)

Start date: 01 Jun 2011, End date: 31 May 2014,

"The project investigates the extrinsic geometry of foliations (expressed by the 2nd fundamental form of leaves) using the approach of the geometric flows.We propose to study not just a single foliated manifold (M, F, g), but rather – assuming a suitable local existence theory – a foliation with a one-parameter family of F-truncated metrics gt parametrized by a ‘time’ t.The research objectives ar ...

Large displays in museums (displays in museums)

Start date: 01 Jun 2011, End date: 31 May 2014,

The goal of this project is to examine novel ways in which large situated displays can be used in cultural heritage sites for the benefit of visitors. Museums and cultural heritage sites today are augmented with technologies aimed to enhance the visitor’s experience. Handheld devices are often used as a personalized device, which provide visitors with context-aware multimedia information. However, ...

Diffuse Baryons in Space (Diffuse Baryons)

Start date: 01 Apr 2010, End date: 31 Mar 2014,

This proposal aims to significantly enhance our knowledge of diffuse gas in the universe and its association with galaxies. Better understanding of the properties and physical state of the intergalactic medium (IGM) will not only shed light on processes related to galaxy formation and evolution, but will also provide a more complete census of baryons in the universe with implications for the missi ...

Posttraumatic Stress Disorder and Smoking Cessation (PTSD and Smoking)

Start date: 01 Nov 2009, End date: 31 Oct 2013,

The objectives of the proposed study are to test whether smokers with PTSD lapse early to smoking and relapse to smoking at significantly higher rates than smokers without PTSD; and to elucidate the explanatory mediating mechanism(s) underlying the relations between PTSD and poor smoking cessation outcomes. To achieve these objectives, the proposed investigation employs a prospective design that f ...

Secure Function Evaluation – from Theory to Tools (SFEROT)

Start date: 01 Oct 2008, End date: 30 Sep 2013,

Modern cryptography is known for the introduction of public key cryptography, which has been widely applied in practice. However, the theory of cryptography provided additional powerful (and less intuitive) tools. One of its most attractive contributions is secure computation, also known as secure function evaluation - SFE, which allows multiple participants to implement a joint computation that, ...

"FOCUS will allow designing European security research to effectively cope with future EU roles responding to tomorrow’s challenges resulting from the globalization of risks, threats and vulnerabilities. It will do so through the elaboration of multiple scenarios based on IT-supported foresight in the form of alternative futures that are plausibility-probed and not just threat scenarios. FOCUS wil ...

Human communication relies on an array of auditory skills ranging from basic encoding of sound to auditory memory and attention. Improving these skills could benefit many individuals who either attempt to improve their communication skills (e.g., by learning a foreign language) or suffer from communication disorders. However, improving auditory skills remains a challenge because the mechanisms und ...

Searching Protein Structure Space (SPSS)

Start date: 01 May 2008, End date: 13 Nov 2012,

"Finding the structural neighbors of a protein is an essential task in computational structural Biology. In cases where there is no detectable sequence similarity, the identification of structural neighbors offers a powerful approach to predicting structure and function. State-of-the-art protein structural searches find structural neighbors by comparing a protein to all proteins in their database. ...

Researchers across the world are trying to understand precursors of autism spectrum disorders (ASD) and tools for the early identification of this disorder. Early identification is essential for enabling early intervention. Studies have shown that there are markers of ASD that can be detected in infancy among them deficits in joint attention and social interest. Available ASD screening tools have ...

Services and Health for Elderly in Long TERm care (SHELTER)

Start date: 01 Jan 2009, End date: 31 Dec 2011,

"One of the most relevant obstacle to assess and compare nursing home (NH) services and patients across countries relates to the fact that standardized and validated methodologies are not routinely in use in daily practice in Europe. The Minimum Data Set (MDS) is a comprehensive assessment instrument which contains a standardized set of essential clinical and functional status measures and allows ...

Computer Aided Cryptography Engineering (CACE)

Start date: 01 Jan 2008, End date: 31 Dec 2010,

Development of hardware devices and software products is facilitated by a design flow, and a set of tools (e.g., compilers and debuggers), which automate tasks normally performed by experienced, highly skilled developers. However, in both hardware and software examples the tools are generic since they seldom provide specific support for a particular domain. The goal of this project is to design, d ...
