In this paper we report the set-up and results of the Multimodal Brain Tumor Image Segmentation Benchmark (BRATS) organized in conjunction with the MICCAI 2012 and 2013 conferences. Twenty state-of-the-art tumor segmentation algorithms were applied to a set of 65 multi-contrast MR scans of low- and high-grade glioma patients-manually annotated by up to four(More)
We deal with the problem of topology control for mobile ad hoc networks. Based on an asymptotic result on k-connectivity, a simple scheme for topology control is proposed. The scheme is used to generate several topologies under highly mobile conditions. Through simulation and analysis we show that this scheme results in high connectivity even under mobile(More)
How might religion shape intergroup conflict? We tested whether religious infusion-the extent to which religious rituals and discourse permeate the everyday activities of groups and their members-moderated the effects of two factors known to increase intergroup conflict: competition for limited resources and incompatibility of values held by potentially(More)
A computational grid infrastructure for biomedical research, called caGrid, is under development by the National Cancer Institute (NCI) as part of the cancer Biomedical Informatics Grid (caBIG) Initiative. In this paper we present a model that enables users to query an integrated view of caBIG data services at a conceptual semantic level. The model is based(More)
The reaction of [Li(THF)(4)][1,8-mu-(Mes(2)B)C(10)H(6)] with HgCl(2) affords [1,1'-(Hg)-[8-(Mes(2)B)C(10)H(6)](2)] () or [1-(ClHg)-8-(Mes(2)B)C(10)H(6)] (), depending on the stoichiometry of the reagents. These two new compounds have been characterized by (1)H, (13)C, (11)B and (199)Hg NMR, elemental analysis and X-ray crystallography. The cyclic(More)
Reaction of bis(pentafluorophenyl)mercury (1) with the Pd(II) complexes [Pd(salophen)] (I, salophen = N,N'-disalicylidene-o-phenylenediaminate) and [Pd(N--C)(OAc)]2 (II, N--C = (2-(2-pyridyl)phenyl-C,N)) leads to the formation of the supramolecular complexes [1-(I)2] and [1-(II)2] in which the mercury synthon is sandwiched by two molecules of the palladium(More)
