Middle: Sampling sites across stratigraphy encountered on Mars by the Opportunity rover. This is an excellent illustration of the concept of a suite of samples of known geologic context, which has far greater scientifi c value than individual samples without context. (Image details: False color Pancam mosaic acquired by the Opportunity rover on Sol 173… (More)
The European AstRoMap project (supported by the European Commission Seventh Framework Programme) surveyed the state of the art of astrobiology in Europe and beyond and produced the first European roadmap for astrobiology research. In the context of this roadmap, astrobiology is understood as the study of the origin, evolution, and distribution of life in… (More)
Selecting regularization parameters in penalized high-dimensional graphical models in a principled, data-driven, and computationally efficient manner continues to be one of the key challenges in high-dimensional statistics. We present substantial computational gains and conceptual generalizations of the Stability Approach to Regularization Selection… (More)
This paper describes the Space Control Centres use case of the CUBIST FP7 project 3. It introduces the concept of telemetry and describes the format and the contents of the housekeeping telemetry of SOLAR, one of the payloads flying on board of the International Space Station (ISS). Further on, it discusses several approaches to conceptual analysis of space… (More)

Submerged in the new psychiatric landscape, between part time therapeutic care centres, home hospital care and mutual support groups, this institution, which offers appropriate care, finds itself being questioned with regard to its place, its development and its future.
