Earth reinforcing ideas are more and more turning into an invaluable, robust and low-budget strategy to a variety of difficulties encountered in geotechnical engineering perform. growth of the studies and information during this region has succeeded in constructing new recommendations and their purposes to geotechnical engineering difficulties. with a purpose to talk about the newest reports and information, and with the aim of spreading all of them over the area for extra improvement, the IS Kyushi convention sequence with regards to earth reinforcement were held in Fukuoka, Japan, each 4 years given that 1988. This fourth symposium, entitled Landmarks in Earth Reinforcement, is a continuation of the sequence IS Kyushu meetings, and in addition goals at being one of many landmarks within the growth of contemporary earth reinforcement perform.
The first quantity comprises 137 papers chosen for the symposium protecting virtually each element of earth reinforcement. the second one quantity comprises texts of the certain and keynote lectures.

ECDL2000, the Fourth eu convention on examine and complex Te- nology for electronic Libraries, is being held this 12 months in Lisbon, Portugal, following prior occasions in Pisa (1997), Heraklion (1998), and Paris (1999). One significant objective of the ECDL convention sequence has been to attract info pros, stakeholders, and consumer groups from either the study global and from - dustry right into a dialogue of the choice applied sciences, regulations, and situations for international electronic libraries. The luck of prior meetings makes them a difficult act to stick with. The eld of electronic libraries attracts on a very different set of scienti c and technical disciplines. long ago 3 years, additionally, international cooperation on examine and improvement has emerged as an pressing precedence, relatively within the new eu Framework Programme and within the electronic Library Initiative within the usa. due to this variety, the eld is likely to be nonetheless suffering for an identification. yet this fight for id is itself a resource of strength and creativity. P- ticipants during this eld suppose themselves to join a distinct neighborhood, with distinct humans. every one people could declare services on a slender factor, with speci c tasks, however the offerings we make and the equipment we use in neighborhood options may have unexpected affects inside of a turning out to be universe of interconnected resources.

This quantity includes the contributions to the Joint German/Austrian Con- rence on Arti?cial Intelligence, KI 2001, which contains the twenty fourth German and the ninth Austrian convention on Arti?cial Intelligence. they're divided into the next different types: – 2 contributions via invited audio system of the convention; – 29 authorized technical papers, of which five the place submitted as software papers and 24 as papers on foundations of AI; – four contributions by means of contributors of the economic day, within which businesses operating within the ?eld provided their AI purposes. After an extended interval of separate conferences, the German and Austrian Societies ¨ for Arti?cial Intelligence, KI and OGAI, made up our minds to carry a joint convention in Vienna in 2001. the 2 societies had formerly held one joint convention. This happened in Ottstein, a small city in decrease Austria, in 1986. at the moment, the increase of specialist process know-how had additionally renewed curiosity in AI in most cases, with really a few expectancies for destiny advances in regards to the use of AI thoughts in functions pervading many components of our way of life. considering then ?fteen years have handed, and we probably want to remark, before everything of a newcentury, at the growth that has been made during this direction.

WINE 2005, the 1st Workshop on net and community Economics (WINE 2005), came about in Hong Kong, China, December 15-17, 2005. The symposium goals to supply a discussion board for researchers operating in net and community fiscal algorithms from around the world. the ultimate count number of digital submissions used to be 372, of which 108 have been approved. It contains the most software of 31 papers, of which the submitter e mail money owed are: 10 from edu (USA) bills, three from hk (Hong Kong), 2 every one from il (Isreal), cn (China), ch (Switzerland), de (Germany), jp (Japan), gr (Greece), 1 each one from hp. com, sohu. com, pl (Poland), fr (France), ca (Canada), and in (India). moreover, seventy seven papers from 20 nations or areas and six dot. coms have been chosen for sixteen targeted concentration tracks within the parts of net and Algorithmic Economics; E-Commerce Protocols; protection; Collaboration, acceptance and Social Networks; Algorithmic Mechanism; monetary Computing; public sale Algorithms; on-line Algorithms; Collective Rationality; Pricing guidelines; net Mining innovations; community Economics; Coalition thoughts; web Protocols; cost series; Equilibrium. We had one top scholar paper nomination: “Walrasian Equilibrium: Hardness, Approximations and Tracktable situations” by way of Ning Chen and Atri Rudra. we want to thank Andrew Yao for serving the convention as its Chair, with inspiring encouragement and far-sighted management. we want to thank the overseas software Committee for spending their worthwhile effort and time within the evaluate process.
