An airline schedule very rarely operates as planned. Problems related with aircrafts, crew members and passengers are common and the actions towards the solution of these problems are usually known as operations recovery. The Airline Operations Control Center (AOCC) tries to solve these problems with the minimum cost and satisfying all the required rules.(More)
OBJECTIVE The excitement cluster (excitement, hostility, uncooperativeness and impulsivity) may contribute to the risk of violent behaviour, treatment non-adherence, likelihood of discharge and substance use in psychosis. Evidence suggests involvement of frontal executive mechanisms that may show sex differences in their association with symptom severity.(More)
Neuroplastic changes that take place in the brain after sustaining a spinal cord injury have generally been studied encompassing various post-injury time periods, sometimes ranging from just a few days to many years. Although research on the low-end of this time spectrum has established that neuroplastic changes can be detected shortly after trauma,(More)
Disruption management is one of the most important scheduling problems in the airline industry because of the elevated costs associated, however this is relatively new research area comparing for example with fleet and tail assignment. The major goal to solve this kind of problem is to achieve a feasible solution for the airline company minimizing the(More)
The purpose of this study was to investigate and compare the movement-related brain potentials recorded from two groups of right-handed male study participants. One of the groups prepared for and conducted repetitive toe movements while the other prepared to carry out the same type of movement but finally did not execute it. The readiness potential,(More)
Social anxiety due to rejection sensitivity (RS) exacerbates psychosis-like experiences in the general population. While reduced dorsal anterior cingulate cortex (dACC) activity during social rejection in high schizotypy has suggested self-distancing from rejection, earlier stages of mental processing such as feature encoding could also contribute to(More)
There are quite a few solutions for crew scheduling, including some commercial applications. The same happens for aircraft scheduling and for flight scheduling including revenue management. However, the airline operations problem did not receive the same attention as the other airline scheduling problems. In this paper we introduce this problem and report(More)
Airline companies do not collaborate when dealing with problems that arise during their own operational control plan. These problems are related with aircrafts, crew members and passengers and the actions towards the solution of these problems are usually known as operations recovery. In this paper we present a possible solution to the problem of lack of(More)
As a sequel of a recent Ph.D. thesis at the University of Porto and LIACC research lab, a new book appeared at Springer, Series: Studies in Computational Intelligence, Vol. 562, 2014, XII, 242 p., entitled <i>A New Approach for Disruption Management in Airline Operations Control</i> by Antonio J. M. Castro, Ana Paula Rocha, and Eug&#233;nio Oliveira.
