Are meta-paths necessary?: revisiting heterogeneous graph embeddings

Hussein, Rana ; Yang, Dingqi ; Cudre-Mauroux, Philippe

In: Proceedings of the 27th ACM International Conference on Information and Knowledge Management, 2018, p. 437–446

The graph embedding paradigm projects nodes of a graph into a vector space, which can facilitate various downstream graph analysis tasks such as node classification and clustering. To efficiently learn node embeddings from a graph, graph embedding techniques usually preserve the proximity between node pairs sampled from the graph using random walks. In the context of a heterogeneous graph,...

Deep mobile traffic forecast and complementary base station clustering for C-RAN optimization

Chen, Longbiao ; Yang, Dingqi ; Zhang, Daqing ; Wang, Cheng ; Li, Jonathan ; Nguyen, Thi Mai Trang

In: Journal of Network and Computer Applications, 2018, vol. 121, p. 59–69

The increasingly growing data traffic has posed great challenges for mobile operators to increase their data processing capacity, which incurs a significant energy consumption and deployment cost. With the emergence of the Cloud Radio Access Network (C-RAN) architecture, the data processing units can now be centralized in data centers and shared among base stations. By mapping a cluster of...

Relation extraction using distant supervision: a survey

Smirnova, Alisa ; Cudré-Mauroux, Philippe

In: ACM Comput. Surv., 2018, vol. 51, no. 5, p. 106:1–106:35

Relation extraction is a subtask of information extraction where semantic relationships are extracted from natural language text and then classified. In essence, it allows us to acquire structured knowledge from unstructured text. In this article, we present a survey of relation extraction methods that leverage pre-existing structured or semi- structured data to guide the extraction process....

Modéliser les interactions socio-économiques des destinations touristiques du canton du Valais

Chevalley, Stéphanie ; Loubier, Jean-Christophe (Dir.)

Mémoire de bachelor : Haute Ecole de Gestion & Tourisme, 2018.

Dans ce travail de Bachelor, l’objectif principal est de modéliser les interactions socio- économiques des destinations touristiques du canton du Valais et d’identifier les avantages d’un tel modèle sur la compréhension de la dynamique économique touristique. Grâce à des simulations du modèle de Huff, il a pu être constaté que les stations valaisannes étaient en situation de...

Change detection of bare-ice albedo in the Swiss Alps

Naegeli, Kathrin ; Huss, Matthias ; Hoelzle, Martin

In: The Cryosphere, 2019, vol. 13, no. 1, p. 397–412

Albedo feedback is an important driver of glacier melt over bare-ice surfaces. Light- absorbing impurities strongly enhance glacier melt rates but their abundance, composition and variations in space and time are subject to considerable uncertainties and ongoing scientific debates. In this study, we assess the temporal evolution of shortwave broadband albedo derived from 15 end-of-summer...

On the use of multiple-point statistics to improve groundwater flow modeling in karst aquifers : A case study from the Hydrogeological Experimental Site of Poitiers, France

Le Coz, M ; Bodin, J ; Renard, Philippe

In: Journal of Hydrology, 2017, vol. 545, p. 109-119

Limestone aquifers often exhibit complex groundwater flow behaviors resulting from depositional heterogeneities and post-lithification fracturing and karstification. In this study, multiple-point statistics (MPS) was applied to reproduce karst features and to improve groundwater flow modeling. For this purpose, MPS realizations were used in a numerical flow model to simulate the responses to...

Genomic evidence for adaptive inversion clines in Drosophila melanogaster

Kapun, Martin ; Fabian, Daniel K. ; Goudet, Jérôme ; Flatt, Thomas

In: Molecular Biology and Evolution, 2016, vol. 33, no. 5, p. 1317–1336

Clines in chromosomal inversion polymorphisms—presumably driven by climatic gradients—are common but there is surprisingly little evidence for selection acting on them. Here we address this long-standing issue in Drosophila melanogaster by using diagnostic single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) markers to estimate inversion frequencies from 28 whole-genome Pool-seq samples collected from 10...

Genomics of clinal variation in Drosophila: disentangling the interactions of selection and demography

Flatt, Thomas

In: Molecular Ecology, 2016, vol. 25, no. 5, p. 1023–1026

Clines in phenotypes and genotype frequencies across environmental gradients are commonly taken as evidence for spatially varying selection. Classical examples include the latitudinal clines in various species of Drosophila, which often occur in parallel fashion on multiple continents. Today, genomewide analysis of such clinal systems provides a fantastic opportunity for unravelling the...

Heating behavior of magnetic iron oxide nanoparticles at clinically relevant concentration

Lemal, Philipp ; Balog, Sandor ; Geers, Christoph ; Taladriz-Blanco, Patricia ; Palumbo, Andrea ; M.Hirt, Ann ; Rothen-Rutishauser, Barbara ; Petri-Fink, Alke

In: Journal of Magnetism and Magnetic Materials, 2019, vol. 474, p. 637–642

Magnetic hyperthermia for cancer treatment has gained significant attention in recent years, due to its biocompatibility of applied nanoparticles and the possibility for spatially localized heating in deep tissues. Clinical treatments use nanoparticle concentrations of 112 mg Fe/mL, while the concentrations experimental studies have addressed are considerably smaller, usually between 0.1...

How viruses hijack the ERAD tuning machinery

Noack, Julia ; Bernasconi, Riccardo ; Molinari, Maurizio

In: Journal of virology, 2014, vol. 88, no. 18, p. 10272-10275

An essential step during the intracellular life cycle of many positive-strand RNA viruses is the rearrangement of host cell membranes to generate membrane-bound replication platforms. For example, Nidovirales and Flaviviridae subvert the membrane of the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) for their replication. However, the absence of conventional ER and secretory pathway markers in virus-induced...
