The intention of this book is to discuss methods and techniques required for the third generation of mobile multimedia terminals and trends for the future generation services. It originates from the COST Action 254 and 276 and provides an insight into selected research activities deployed within this cooperation framework

Holzforschung Special Issue on Wood Machining

2009 | Action E35

This issue of Holzforschung contains a collection of papers which summarizes the scientific activities of COST Action E35. The objective of this Action was to increase the understanding of wood machining in relation to microstructural and micromechanics aspects of wood, fracture mechanics processes associated with separation of material during cutting and machined surface characterization in relation to quality.
The contributions in this issue of the journal provide a state-of-the-art synthesis of the outcomes of 4 years of highly integrated interdisciplinary work. As well as adding new and enhanced knowledge of the relationships between the behaviour of wood at several structural scales and machining, the papers identify those areas where questions remain unanswered. This should stimulate additional multi-disciplinary research efforts, basic and applied, to achieve the level of understanding that the subject deserves.

Abatement Measures for the Freight Transport Sector

2008 | Action 355
  • Pages: 174
  • Author(s): Eric Cornelis and Christophe Rezet
  • Publisher(s): Presses Universitaires de Namur
  • ISBN/ISSN: 978-2-87037-605-8

The main objective of the Action is to develop a more rigorous understanding of the conditions under which the process of growing unsustainable transport demand could be reversed, by changing travelers’, shippers’ and carriers’ behavior.
The Working Group 1 is devoted to freight transport and energy consumption.
This book covers the communications presented during a meeting held in Madrid in May 2007 and focusing on abatement measueres for the freight transport sectors.

ICT Capabilities in action: what people do, user aspects of ICTs

2005 | Action 269
  • Pages: 248

COST Action 269 belongs to the domain Telecommunications and Information Science and Technology. Its main objectives were to study and analyse ICT usage and users, with emphasis on communication, in order to increase knowledge on how and why a person incorporates or rejects ICT products and services into his/her daily life. COST Action 269 offered a unique opportunity for European scientists, without regard to any particular discipline, to participate in open research of user aspects of ICTs. Disciplined ranging from technology to sociology were represented.
