Actin polymerization is a fundamental cellular process regulating immune cell functions and the immune response. The Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome protein (WASp) is an actin nucleation promoting factor, which is exclusively expressed in hematopoietic cells, where it plays a key regulatory role in cytoskeletal dynamics. WASp interacting protein (WIP) was first discovered as the binding partner of WAS...
A planning procedure to set the constant level of work in process (WIP) for each product type in a job shop operated under CONWIP control is developed. We model the job shop as a single chain multiple class closed queuing network. Given a specified product mix and a total WIP, a nonlinear program bounds the throughput of the network and optimizes the WIP mix. We identify the minimum total WIP t...
Due to the growing complexity of information that has to be communicated by current AI systems, there comes an increasing need for building advanced intel l igent user interfaces that take advantage of a coordinated combination of different modalities, e.g., natural language, graphics, and animation, to produce situated and user-adaptive presentations. A deeper understanding of the basic princi...

In terms of Internet use and access, Chile is in a level close to Italy and Spain with its almost stable level of some 35% of web users between 2003 and 2004. Discarding the always relevant socio-economic causes, this stagnation may be explained by the ceiling of available computer skills –as it is the case in other countries. Additionally, for the first time WIP-Chile revealed the percentage o...

WIP stabilizes actin filaments and is important for filopodium formation. To define the role of WIP in immunity, we generated WIP-deficient mice. WIP(minus sign/minus sign) mice have normal lymphocyte development, but their T cells fail to proliferate, secrete IL-2, increase their F-actin content, polarize and extend protrusions following T cell receptor ligation, and are deficient in conjugate...
Inspired by existing works, in this paper, we propose software architecture for coupling the MAS and DEVS formalism. This architecture is designed to enable the modeling of large quantities of agents. Previous works often associated with an agent to a DEVS model. The complexity of the system increases proportionately with the number of agents. We describe an approach to group a set of agents in...

In order to design a resilient system with multiple sensors, one of the important things we should consider is the sensor fusion model. Two main classes of sensor models are usually considered: probabilistic  and abstract . The difference between two models is the assumption of noise distribution. In the former, it assumes the pre-designed noise distributions (e.g., Gaussian). In the late...
In the last few years, computer simulation has suffered from a credibility crisis. One main issue is the lack of replayability for the simulations. We propose a new methodology for executing simulation studies in the cloud (accessible through RESTful Web Services) and orchestrated by workflows. We will show how replayability could be improved by sharing the same simulation environment, simulati...
