Behaviors in soccer-agent domains can involve individual plays, several players involved in tactical plays or the whole team trying to follow strategies supported by specific formations. The discovery of such behaviors needs the tracking of both the positions of players at any instant of the game and relevant relations able to represent particular(More)
AML is an aggressive hematological malignancy with highest incidence in the older adults. The adverse features of AML in the elderly, and the frailties and comorbidities frequently present in them, make their management a particularly difficult therapeutic challenge. In this context, it is important to assess carefully patient- as well as disease-associated(More)
This paper presents and discusses a faculty development program being carried out at the University of Aveiro, aiming at providing academics with essential skills in areas such as teaching best practices, student-centered curriculum design, collaborative learning and the adoption of ICT/Internet technologies. 1 Background Founded in 1973, the University of(More)
This paper describes a framework of real-time simulation for modeling heavy construction operations. Compared with the traditional offline simulation that uses stationary inputs, the capability of real-time simulation to dynamically incorporate new project data and adapt to changes in the operating environment offers the promise of improving the accuracy of(More)
In this work, we report the partial sequence of a 51 kDa protein of Entamoeba histolytica that is highly immunogenic in humans. Partial sequencing of the N-terminal end showed that 18 of the first 20 amino acid residues of the protein were identified uniquely, indicating that the final product was a homogeneous protein preparation. The N-terminal sequence(More)
Multipath transport protocols require awareness of the capability of different paths being used for transmission. It is well known that round trip time (RTT) can be used to estimate retransmission timeout with reasonable accuracy. However, using RTT to evaluate the delay of forward or backward paths is not always suitable. In fact, these paths are usually(More)
