La vie adulte des moustiques est marquée par la répétition de séquences comportementales incluant: la recherche d’un partenaire sexuel, la recherche de ressources (repas sanguin sur un hôte ou sucre d’origine végétale) et la recherche d’un site de ponte ; ces séquences comportementales étant intercalées de périodes plus ou moins longues de repos. L’entreprise de l’un ou...

Exposing concurrency failures : a comprehensive survey of the state of the art and a novel approach to reproduce field failures

Bianchi, Francesco Adalberto ; Pezzè, Mauro (Dir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Università della Svizzera italiana, 2018 ; 2018INFO015.

With the rapid advance of multi-core and distributed architectures, concurrent systems are becoming more and more popular. Concurrent systems are extremely hard to develop and validate, as their overall behavior depends on the non-deterministic interleaving of the execution flows that comprise the system. Wrong and unexpected interleavings may lead to concurrency faults that are extremely...

Reification as the key to augmenting software development : an object is worth a thousand words

Dal Sasso, Tommaso ; Lanza, Michele (Dir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Università della Svizzera italiana, 2018 ; 2018INFO014.

Software development has become more and more pervasive, with influence in almost every human activity. To be able to fit in so many different scenarios and constantly implement new features, software developers adopted methodologies with tight development cycles, sometimes with more than one release per day. With the constant growth of modern software projects and the consequent expansion...

What can be considered fair marketing in the fashion industry? : Building a green and fair consumer rating scheme for garment brands

Jufer, Lucie ; Maeder, Eric (Dir.)

Mémoire de bachelor : Haute école de gestion de Genève, 2018 ; TDIBM 37.

The object of this paper is to tackle the issues that are linked to the unsustainability of today’s garment industry. The externalities that arise from this industry –that are known to harm the environment and its inhabitants– are largely talked about today. Whether it be by society, non-governmental organisations, regulatory bodies or companies involved in these destructive practices. Even...

To what degree could Swiss Millennials’ conflicting desire for fashion, brand meaningfulness and sustainability be solved by the fashion-on-demand business model

Christen, Anika ; Willson, Phillip (Dir.)

Mémoire de bachelor : Haute école de gestion de Genève, 2018 ; TDIBM 32.

Today’s clothing and fashion industry is mostly considered as “fast-fashion”, a model characterized by high speed and high volume production, rapidly changing styles and novelty, aiming at maximizing throughput of goods and profits. The production and consumption of clothes have major impacts on the environment, the society and the economy and are for now far from being sustainable. ...

Numerical reconstructions of the flow and basal conditions of the Rhine glacier, European Central Alps, at the Last Glacial Maximum

Cohen, Denis ; Gillet-Chaulet, Fabien ; Haeberli, Wilfried ; Machguth, Horst ; Fischer, Urs H.

In: The Cryosphere, 2018, vol. 12, no. 8, p. 2515–2544

At the Last Glacial Maximum (LGM), the Rhine glacier in the Swiss Alps covered an area of about 16000km2. As part of an integrative study about the safety of repositories for radioactive waste under ice age conditions in Switzerland, we modeled the Rhine glacier using a thermodynamically coupled three-dimensional, transient Stokes flow and heat transport model down to a horizontal resolution...

Combining different potato-associated pseudomonas strains for improved biocontrol of Phytophthora infestans

Vrieze, Mout De ; Germanier, Fanny ; Vuille, Nicolas ; Weisskopf, Laure

In: Frontiers in Microbiology, 2018, vol. 9, p. -

Late blight caused by Phytophthora infestans is considered as the most devastating disease of potato and is a re-emerging problem worldwide. Current late blight control practices rely mostly on synthetic fungicides or copper-based products, but growing awareness of the negative impact of these compounds on the environment has led to the search for alternative control measures. A collection of...

Corrosion du sertissage en plomb des vitraux : recherches autour de la dégradation de deux objets dans leur vitrine au Musuem zu Allerheiligen de Schaffhouse

Gerber, Alice

Mémoire de bachelor : Haute Ecole Arc Conservation-Restauration, 2018.

Depuis quelques années, au Museum zu Allerheiligen de Schaffhouse, deux vitraux du 16e siècle se corrodent au niveau de leur sertissage en plomb, sous la forme de corrosion ou d’efflorescence blanche et grise. Ces deux objets sont exposés dans leur vitrine depuis 2009. Le musée souhaiterait comprendre le phénomène de dégradation de ces deux différentes formes de corrosion , et tenter...
