The Visual Object Tracking challenge 2015, VOT2015, aims at comparing short-term single-object visual trackers that do not apply pre-learned models of object appearance. Results of 62 trackers are presented. The number of tested trackers makes VOT 2015 the largest benchmark on shortterm tracking to date. For each participating tracker, a short description(More)
The heat shock transcription factors (HSFs) are the major heat shock factors regulating the heat stress response. They participate in regulating the expression of heat shock proteins (HSPs), which are critical in the protection against stress damage and many other important biological processes. Study of the HSF gene family is important for understanding(More)
It is important to understand the status and extent of soil contamination with trace elements to make sustainable management strategies for agricultural soils. The inputs of trace elements to agricultural soils via atmospheric deposition, livestock manures, fertilizers and agrochemicals, sewage irrigation and sewage sludge in China were analyzed and an(More)
A 120-mVppd low swing pulse receiver is presented for AC coupled interconnect (ACCI). Using this receiver, 3 Gb/s chip-to-chip communication is demonstrated through a wirebonded ACCI channel with 150-fF coupling capacitors, across 15-cm FR4 microstrip lines. A test chip was fabricated in TSMC 0.18m CMOS technology and the driver and pulse receiver dissipate(More)
By using current-sensing differential buses with driver pre-emphasis techniques, power dissipation is reduced by 26.0% - 51.2% and peak current is reduced by 63.8%, compared to conventional repeater insertion techniques, for 10mm long buses in TSMC 0.25μm technology. This proposed architecture lowers the worst coupling capacitance to total capacitance(More)
BACKGROUND The re-emergence of dengue virus 4 (DENV-4) has become a public health concern in South America, Southeast Asia and South Asia. However, it has not been known to have caused a local outbreak in China for the past 20 years. The purpose of this study was to elucidate the epidemiology of one local community outbreak caused by DENV-4 in Guangzhou(More)
A 16-bit on-chip bus with driver pre-emphasis fabricated in 0.25mum CMOS technology attains an aggregate signaling data rate of 32Gb/s over 5-10mm long lossy interconnects while reducing delay latency by 28.3%, power by 15.0%, and peak current by 70% over a conventional single-ended voltage-mode static bus. The proposed bus is robust against crosstalk noise(More)
Here, we present one of the first studies investigating the mobility, solubility and the speciation-dependent in-situ bioaccumulation of antimony (Sb) in an active Sb mining area (Xikuangshan, China). Total Sb concentrations in soils are high (527-11,798 mg kg(-1)), and all soils, including those taken from a paddy field and a vegetable garden, show a high(More)
To understand its unprecedented resurgence, we examined the epidemiological, virological, and entomological features of dengue in Guangzhou during 1978-2009. Cases reported to the Guangzhou Centre for Disease Control and Prevention and data from virological and entomological surveillance were analyzed from three periods: 1978-1988, 1989-1999, and 2000-2009.(More)
