Throughout any given year, the National Academies convene hundreds of conferences, workshops, symposia, forums, roundtables, and other gatherings that attract the finest minds in academia and the public and private sectors. These venues for discussion and debate are essential for allowing the scientific process to unfold.

The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine are the nation's pre-eminent source of high-quality, objective advice on science, engineering, and health matters. Top experts participate in our projects, activities, and studies to examine and assemble evidence-based findings to address some of society's greatest challenges.

Our peer-reviewed reports present the evidence-based consensus of committees of experts. Published proceedings record the presentations and discussions that take place at hundreds of conferences, workshops, symposia, forums, roundtables, and other gatherings every year. And, our prestigious journals publish the latest scientific findings on a wide range of topics.

Discover what the National Academies are doing in various topic areas to strengthen the fields of science, engineering, and medicine and their capacity to contribute to the well-being of our nation and the world.

Reliable estimates of the costs and potential impacts on the United States economy of various emissions reduction and other mitigation strategies are critical to the development of the federal climate change research and development portfolio. At the request of the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), the National Academies organized a workshop, summarized in this volume, to consider some of these types of modeling issues.

Proceedings: Proceedings published by the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine chronicle the presentations and discussions at a workshop, symposium, or other event convened by the National Academies. The statements and opinions contained in proceedings are those of the participants and are not endorsed by other participants, the planning committee, or the National Academies.

The objective of this program is the training of graduate students with engineering, applied mathematics or physics backgrounds in the application of mathematical and engineering tools to finance. Financial engineering is a multidisciplinary education program that involves the Viterbi School of Engineering, the USC Marshall School of Business and the USC Dornsife College of Letters, Arts and Sciences (Department of Economics). Financial engineering uses tools from finance and economics, engineering, applied mathematics and statistics to address problems such as derivative securities valuation, strategic planning and dynamic investment strategies, and risk management, which are of interest to investment and commercial banks, trading companies, hedge funds, insurance companies, corporate risk managers and regulatory agencies.

The Audio/Media Production certificate program is a 25-credit program in which students develop a variety of production projects in their courses that become part of a professional portfolio. Students will build skills working with digital recording studios, Pro Tools, and the Adobe Creative Cloud suite that supports photography, video editing, graphic design, print design, web design and audio editing, among other applications. There is a required internship intended to provide further professional experience, networking, and references for future employment. This program appeals to musicians who might want to produce their own music, and those interested in graphic design, media, public relations and digital marketing.

The use of this noise test code ensures the reproducibility of the determination of the characteristic noise emissions within specific limits. These limits are determined by the accuracy grade of the noise measuring method used. Noise measurements specified by this standard are carried out by the engineering method (accuracy grade 2) and the survey method (accuracy grade 3).

It is essential to understand that the acceptance rate/rejection rate of papers varies among journals. Some Journals considers all the manuscripts submissions as a basis of acceptance rate computation. On the other hand, few consider the only manuscripts sent for peer review or few even not bother about the accurate maintenance of total submissions. Hence, it can provide a rough estimation only.

"The findings at Johns Hopkins are just the beginning," said Dr. Francis S. Collins, director of NIH's National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI). The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA), which was launched in December 2005 as a three-year, $100 million pilot project by NIH's NCI and NHGRI, aims to use large-scale genome sequencing and other genomic technologies to comprehensively identify the genetic changes that cause cancer.

Since this is an extension of existing functionality, this should be considered in future versions of IFS. To identify the importance of this feature for other customers as well, I wanted to share this idea here.

Abstract:Navigation and positioning technology is closely related to our routine life activities, from travel to aerospace. Recently it has been found that Cataglyphis (a kind of desert ant) is able to detect the polarization direction of skylight and navigate according to this information. This paper presents a real-time bionic camera-based polarization navigation sensor. This sensor has two work modes: one is a single-point measurement mode and the other is a multi-point measurement mode. An indoor calibration experiment of the sensor has been done under a beam of standard polarized light. The experiment results show that after noise reduction the accuracy of the sensor can reach up to 0.3256. It is also compared with GPS and INS (Inertial Navigation System) in the single-point measurement mode through an outdoor experiment. Through time compensation and location compensation, the sensor can be a useful alternative to GPS and INS. In addition, the sensor also can measure the polarization distribution pattern when it works in multi-point measurement mode.Keywords: bionic navigation; polarization measurement; camera based; Cataglyphis

In this paper, a real-time three-channel camera-based polarized light sensor is developed. The developed sensor has three cameras, and the three cameras are arranged in a triangular layout. The sensor has both the advantages of both the point-source based sensor and the image-based sensor. It can measure the polarization information of one point and also can measure the polarization pattern of a region. It has many advantages. Firstly, it obtains the three-channel signal synchronously through three cameras. Its frame rate can reach up to 20 fps, in other words, we can get a measurement data within 50 ms. Secondly, because every datapoint used is obtained from numerous CCD pixels by filtering, the sensor is very robust and less susceptible to interference by the external environment, especially in the single-point measurement mode. The maximum measurement error of the sensor is 0.3256 in the single-point measurement mode according to the indoor calibration experiments.

Firstly, the polarity directions of the cameras need to be calibrated. We rotate the rotary table and adjust the polarity direction of the polarized light to 90, then rotate one polarizer and adjust the polarity direction of the polarizer to make the output of the camera to a minimum value. By this way, the polarity direction of the camera could be adjusted to 0. Similar to that described above, we could adjust the polarity direction of the other two cameras to 45 and 90, respectively.

In order to validate the feasibility of the correction method described above, another experiment with the sensor is performed later in the outdoor environment. The result of this experiment is shown in Figure 13. The clearest observation from the result is that the calibration method of the sensor proposed in this paper is feasible. In addition, the sensor can be used as a useful alternative to GPS and INS when it working in the single-point measurement mode. 041b061a72
