The use of technology to support conflict resolution is nowadays well established. Moreover, technological solutions are not only used to solve traditional conflicts but also to solve conflicts that emerge in virtual environments. Therefore, a new field of research has been developing in which the use of Artificial Intelligence techniques can significantly(More)
Conflict resolution is a classic field of Social Science research. However, with conflicts now also emerging in virtual environments, a new field of research has been developing in which Artificial Intelligence and particularly Ambient Intelligence are interesting. As result, the field of Online Dispute Resolution emerged as the use (in part or entirely) of(More)
Up until now, most approaches to Online Dispute Resolution focused on "traditional" problems such as the generation of solutions, the support to negotiation or the definition of strategies. Although these problems are evidently valid and important ones, research should also start to consider new potential issues that arise from technological evolution. In(More)
The current trend in Online Dispute Resolution focuses mostly on the development of technological tools that allow parties to solve conflicts through telecommunication means. However, this tendency leaves aside key issues, namely our concern with respect to context information that was previously available in traditional Alternative Dispute Resolution(More)
In this paper we propose an efcient vectorized low density parity check (LDPC) decoding scheme based on the min-sum algorithm and the horizontal scheduling method. Also, the well known forward-backward algorithm, used in the check-node messages update, is improved. Results are presented for 32 and 16 bits logarithm likelihood ratio messages representation(More)
CMS1MS2 (CC-Ib) from Carica candamarcensis (Vasconcellea cundinamarcensis) is a cysteine proteinase found as a single polypeptide containing 213 residues of 22,991 Da. The enzyme was purified by three chromatographic steps, two of them involving cationic exchange. Crystals of CMS1MS2 complexed with E-64 were obtained by the hanging drop vapor-diffusion(More)
Innate immunity serves as the first line of defense against infectious agents such as intracellular bacteria. The innate immune platform includes Toll-like receptors (TLRs), retinoid acid-inducible gene-I-like receptors and other cytosolic nucleic acid sensors, nucleotide-binding and oligomerization domain-like receptors, adaptors, kinases and other(More)
Having knowledge about social interactions as a basis for informed decision support in situations of conflict can be determinant. However, lower attention is given to the social network interpretation process in conflict management approaches. The main objective of the work presented here is to identify how the parties' social networks correlate to their(More)
