—This paper reports a test bed aiming at studying burst contention resolution mechanisms in "Labelled" OBS networks together with a simulation tool that is designed to back up experiments. The test bed is composed of a Labelled OBS core node and a measurement arrangement for burst capture and analysis. Different components of the test bed are presented(More)
Model transformation is one of the key principles of Model Driven Engineering. Many approaches have been proposed to design and realize them. However, for all the approaches, model transformations are considered as single entities that can only be chained if their input and output metamodels are compatible. This approach has the major drawback to focus on(More)
Model-driven engineering (MDE) exploits well-defined, tool-supported modelling languages and operations applied to models created using these languages. Model transformation is a critical part of the use of MDE. It has been argued that transformations must be engineered systematically, particularly when the languages to which they are applied are large and(More)
This chapter presents ParadisEO-MOEO, a white-box object-oriented software framework dedicated to the flexible design of metaheuristics for multi-objective optimization. This paradigm-free software proposes a unified view for major evolutionary multi-objective metaheuristics. It embeds some features and techniques for multi-objective resolution and aims to(More)
While alterations in spinal kinematics have been frequently reported in patients with chronic low back pain (CLBP), a better characterization of the kinematics during functional activities is needed to improve our understanding and therapeutic solutions for this condition. Recent studies on healthy subjects showed the value of analyzing the spine during(More)
A comparison of three different Optical Burst Switching (OBS) architectures is made, in terms of performance criteria, control and hardware complexity, fairness, resource utilization, and burst loss probability. Regarding burst losses, we distinguish the losses due to burst contentions from those due to contentions of Burst Control Packets (BCP). The(More)
This work deals with the design of new shielding materials for the protection of electrical devices. Since there are many different requirements for modern materials, we have chosen a multi-objective approach to this problem. As material under consideration we chose conducting polymer composites due to their excellent electromagnetic properties in the(More)
