12th international conference on human retrovirology: HTLV and related retroviruses
Michael D Lairmore, Masahiro Fujii
Retrovirology , 2005, DOI: 10.1186/1742-4690-2-61
Abstract: The International Retrovirology Association in conjunction with the National Institutes of Health and the University of the West Indies, Jamaica welcomed over 300 scientists from diverse disciplines to the 12th International Conference on Human Retrovirology: HTLV and Related Retroviruses, held at the Half Moon Hotel in Montego Bay, Jamaica, from June 22nd to June 25th 2005. The Association was established in May 1994 to promote informal discussions among established human T-lymphotropic viruses (HTLV) scientists to enhance the efforts of scientists and clinicians to form interdisciplinary groups to study HTLV and its related diseases in a cooperative and creative manner. The Association sponsors its biennial general scientific conferences at rotating international venues, generally in areas with endemic HTLV infection. This unique meeting brings together basic scientists, epidemiologists and clinical researchers in a free form exchange of data to discuss approaches to prevent HTLV infection or develop new therapies against HTLV-mediated diseases. The Association has focused its international meeting on HTLV and other related human and nonhuman primate retroviruses, to promote excellent science and to facilitate the communication of scientific results. Equally important, the Association fosters the education and training of young scientists to bring new approaches to the complex problems of HTLV research, such as translational research to bring findings from the laboratory into clinical trials that benefit HTLV-infected patients. Judging from the breadth and quality of research presentations and workshops at the 12th International Conference, these goals are being accomplished.HTLV research enters its third decade with the challenge to bring a new generation of scientists to the challenges facing the field [1]. Many of the scientists attending the meeting were from developing countries where HTLV is endemic. It was particularly relevant that the conference was held

Biodegradability of Plastics  [PDF]
Yutaka Tokiwa,Buenaventurada P. Calabia,Charles U. Ugwu,Seiichi Aiba
International Journal of Molecular Sciences , 2009, DOI: 10.3390/ijms10093722
Abstract: Plastic is a broad name given to different polymers with high molecular weight, which can be degraded by various processes. However, considering their abundance in the environment and their specificity in attacking plastics, biodegradation of plastics by microorganisms and enzymes seems to be the most effective process. When plastics are used as substrates for microorganisms, evaluation of their biodegradability should not only be based on their chemical structure, but also on their physical properties (melting point, glass transition temperature, crystallinity, storage modulus etc.). In this review, microbial and enzymatic biodegradation of plastics and some factors that affect their biodegradability are discussed.
Report on the 12th Conference of the Groupe des Cartothécaires de LIBER, 27 June – 1 July 2000, K benhavn, Denmark
Christopher Fleet
Liber Quarterly : The Journal of European Research Libraries , 2000,
Abstract: This was another stimulating and enjoyable conference of the Groupe des Cartothécaires held in the impressive gravity-defying new extension to the Kongelige Bibliotek. The papers and issues discussed ranged from the everyday and practical to the abstract and theoretical, from historical cartography to future digital glints in the eye, and this report is inevitably a personal and simplified account of the meeting. The intention is to summarize the main issues of the various papers, highlight general trends and provide a briefer introduction to papers, to which readers are referred for more information.
Proceedings of the Combined 22th International Workshop on Expressiveness in Concurrency and 12th Workshop on Structural Operational Semantics  [PDF]
Silvia Crafa,Daniel E. Gebler
Computer Science , 2015, DOI: 10.4204/EPTCS.190
Abstract: This volume contains the proceedings of the Combined 22nd International Workshop on Expressiveness in Concurrency and the 12th Workshop on Structural Operational Semantics (EXPRESS/SOS 2015) which was held on 31 August 2015 in Madrid, Spain, as an affiliated workshop of CONCUR 2015, the 26th International Conference on Concurrency Theory. The EXPRESS workshops aim at bringing together researchers interested in the expressiveness of various formal systems and semantic notions, particularly in the field of concurrency. Their focus has traditionally been on the comparison between programming concepts (such as concurrent, functional, imperative, logic and object-oriented programming) and between mathematical models of computation (such as process algebras, Petri nets, event structures, modal logics, and rewrite systems) on the basis of their relative expressive power. The EXPRESS workshop series has run successfully since 1994 and over the years this focus has become broadly construed. The SOS workshops aim at being a forum for researchers, students and practitioners interested in new developments, and directions for future investigation, in the field of structural operational semantics. One of the specific goals of the SOS workshop series is to establish synergies between the concurrency and programming language communities working on the theory and practice of SOS. Since 2012, the EXPRESS and SOS communities have organized an annual combined EXPRESS/SOS workshop on the expressiveness of mathematical models of computation and the formal semantics of systems and programming concepts.
