Maker Faire Bay Area 2017, San Mateo, CA, May 19, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Arduino, leading open-source ecosystem for Education, Maker and Internet of Things (IoT) markets, announced the appointment of Hernando Barragán as its Chief Design Architect. “This is a very exciting day for me, Arduino, and the entire Arduino community,” said Arduino CEO, Federico Musto. “Of course, Hernando’s Wiring project was the original foundation, which led to the Arduino we all know and love today. His artistic ability to design remarkable hardware is the pièce de résistance, giving developers broad, functional technologies, while offering a well-designed, well-packaged, and easy-to-use platform to create artistic projects of their own. Hernando brings an impressive talent to brilliantly marry art with functionality, and he will be an inspiring member of the Arduino team.” Hernando started Wiring in 2003 as his Master’s thesis project at the Interaction Design Institute Ivrea (IDII) in Italy, where he received his masters with distinction in 2004. The objective was to make it easy for artists and designers to work with electronics, by removing the complicated details of electronics. He continued the development of Wiring at the Universidad de Los Andes in Colombia, where he began teaching as an instructor in Interaction Design. Today, he designs interactive artifacts and experiences with various collaborators to attract and engage diverse audiences in dynamic contexts, exploring possibilities of expression at the intersection of art, design, architecture, and technology to enrich human experiences. Barragán was awarded a Research-creation grant, by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council in Canada, along with two colleagues from Laval University and UQAC, researching the IoT and how it will re-shape the architecture environment. “I am honored to join Arduino at this time in its history,” said Barragán. “I’ve always been a part of the community, and am thrilled to take on a leadership role to help determine the future of the Company and be an even bigger part of the passionate community of Arduino developers. As the democratization of hardware continues to unfold, now is the time where the sophistication of hardware development platforms can really make a difference. If we can design elegant boards that developers and users want to build with, alongside with the appropriate software tools, Arduino will continue to be a part of a real transformation in the industry. We are prepared for a turning point preserving its original philosophy, values, ideas and ease of use to mark the next stage for what has been a very successful innovation platform.” About Arduino Arduino is the world’s leading open-source software and hardware ecosystem.

We present here new results and algorithms for the Linear Arrangement Problem (LAP). We first propose a new lower bound, which links LAP with the Max Cut Problem, and derive a LIP model as well as a branch/bound algorithm for the general case. Then we focus on the case of interval graphs: we first show that our lower bound is tight for unit interval graphs, and derive an efficient polynomial time approximation algorithm for general interval graphs. © 2014 Polish Information Processing Society.


Note aux rédacteurs : Une photo est associée à ce communiqué de presse. C'est dans le but de soutenir les efforts des individus et des groupes souhaitant intégrer l'activité physique à leur mode de vie que s'est déroulé aujourd'hui le premier Challenge Stanley Vollant. Cet événement annuel, organisé avec l'appui et dans l'esprit du projet Innu Meshkenu, se veut une compétition amicale entre les communautés autochtones qui doivent cumuler le plus grand nombre d'heures de marche possible. La première édition du challenge, coorganisée avec le Grand Conseil de la Nation Waban-Aki, s'est déroulée dans la communauté abénaquise d'Odanak, située sur la Rive-Sud du Saint-Laurent entre Montréal et Québec. Au total, une centaine de marcheurs ont cumulé 159 heures de marche en prenant part à des marches d'une, deux, trois ou quatre heures. Force est de constater que de nombreuses personnes ne réussissent pas à adopter un mode de vie actif, souvent parce qu'il est difficile de trouver le temps d'intégrer l'activité physique à son quotidien. Le Challenge Stanley Vollant veut rappeler l'importance de la marche et inspirer les communautés à mettre en place des plans de mise en forme collectifs. « Quand on prend sa santé en main, ce sont toutes nos perspectives d'avenir qui s'améliorent, tant au niveau physique, mental, émotionnel que spirituel, a souligné le Dr Stanley Vollant. La marche est une activité inclusive qui est accessible à tous, peu importe l'âge ou le statut. Par sa nature, un événement comme aujourd'hui favorise aussi l'ouverture à l'autre et donne l'occasion aux autochtones et aux allochtones de marcher côte à côte et de prendre le temps d'échanger. » Le Challenge Stanley Vollant a été rendu possible grâce à de nombreux partenaires qui ont à cœur la santé et le bien-être des Premières Nations, soit Santé Canada, le gouvernement du Québec, Québec en forme et le Centre des Premières Nations Nikanite de l'UQAC « La détermination et l'engagement du Dr Stanley Vollant d'agir pour le bien-être pour les jeunes Québécois de toutes les origines est tout simplement sans fin. Je suis convaincu que ce challenge, une nouvelle initiative de sa part, réussira à convaincre d'autres jeunes à croire en leurs rêves, une condition essentielle pour assurer un futur meilleur à la prochaine génération. Aujourd'hui, nous célébrons collectivement la conclusion d'une année pavée de défis et d'accomplissements en matière de santé, et par ce rassemblement, nous devenons également une source d'inspiration pour l'ensemble de la société québécoise, » s'est réjoui le ministre responsable des Affaires autochtones, Geoffrey Kelley. « Le Challenge Stanley Vollant est un projet qui s'inscrit résolument dans le mouvement en faveur des saines habitudes de vie et il est porteur de santé et de respect, des valeurs qui nous rejoignent profondément, a mentionné Éric Lamothe, directeur général de Québec en Forme. Soutenir les jeunes dans l'adoption de comportement sain en mettant en place toutes les conditions nécessaires est au cœur de ce mouvement depuis plus de 10 ans et nous souhaitons poursuivre dans cette voix prometteuse pour nos jeunes. » M. Lamothe a pris part au Challenge d'aujourd'hui, tandis que Québec en Forme y a présenté son recueil bilan « Pour un Québec en Forme ». Le Challenge Stanley Vollant se veut un événement annuel qui vient couronner des mois d'efforts à cumuler des kilomètres de marches, comme avec le projet de club de marche «Wli Pmossaw8gan-Bonne marche» qui a été mis sur pied chez les Abénaquis d'Odanak et de Wôlinak par les Services à l'Enfance et à la Famille des Premières Nations du Grand Conseil de la Nation Waban-Aki. Dans le cadre de ce projet novateur, aînés et enfants étaient invités à se joindre à un mouvement intergénérationnel qui visait à faire bouger les gens ensemble et à se réunir autour de la culture et de la tradition autochtone. Le Conseil des Abénakis d'Odanak est fier de constater que les gens de la communauté ont posé un geste concret pour améliorer leurs habitudes de vie, par leur participation à des sessions de marche, en individuel et en groupe. Pour les élus d'Odanak, le Challenge Stanley Vollant est donc l'aboutissement logique d'une action communautaire forte, rassemblant la population et l'ensemble des partenaires de la communauté. Voulant passer des paroles à l'acte et mettre en place des moyens constructifs de changer le sort des peuples autochtones, c'est en septembre 2010 que le Dr Stanley Vollant a entrepris la marche Innu Meshkenu. Sa vision : promouvoir l'adoption de saines habitudes de vie, d'encourager la fierté culturelle et de valoriser la persévérance scolaire chez les jeunes des Premières Nations et leurs familles. Jusqu'ici, il a parcouru avec son équipe d'une centaine de marcheurs, plus de 5 255 kilomètres de routes et de sentiers au sein des territoires innu, huron-wendat, waban-aki, micmacs, attikamekw, anishnabeg, cri, mohawk, malécite, naskapi et inuit afin de poursuivre ces objectifs. Le Challenge Stanley Vollant se veut un volet grand public qui s'inscrit dans la continuité du projet Innu Meshkenu.

SAGUENAY, QUÉBEC--(Marketwired - 3 nov. 2016) - C'est dans le but de soutenir les efforts des individus et des groupes souhaitant intégrer l'activité physique à leur mode de vie que se déroulera le 19 novembre prochain le Challenge Stanley Vollant. Ce nouveau rendez-vous annuel, organisé dans l'esprit du projet Innu Meshkenu, se veut une compétition amicale entre les communautés autochtones qui doivent cumuler le plus grand nombre d'heures de marche possible. Cette édition du Challenge est co-organisée par le Grand Conseil de la Nation Waban-Aki et se déroulera dans la communauté abénaquise d'Odanak, située sur la Rive-Sud du Saint-Laurent entre Montréal et Québec. C'est donc dans le plaisir et sous le thème de la prévention en santé que tous sont invités à venir marcher leur challenge en compagnie du Dr Vollant. Selon le Regroupement pour un Québec en santé, une très forte majorité de Québécois (87 %) affirment qu'ils aspirent à vivre sainement, à manger mieux et à bouger plus, mais ils avouent trouver souvent difficile d'intégrer ces saines habitudes dans leur vie quotidienne. Le Challenge Stanley Vollant vise donc à développer un environnement favorable qui valorise l'importance de la marche dans l'optique d'offrir aux Premières Nations l'opportunité d'intégrer des saines habitudes de vie au quotidien. Le Dr Stanley Vollant souligne : « La marche est une activité physique qui est accessible à tous, peu importe son revenu ou son état de santé. Lors de ma grande marche Innu Meshkenu, j'ai vu un impact considérable sur la vie de ceux qui ont décidé de s'y adonner afin de me suivre. Il est donc important de valoriser cette activité physique, car elle est souvent le premier pas dans un plan de remise en forme. » Le Challenge consiste en une marche d'une, deux, trois ou quatre heures. Les quatre challenges se termineront à 15 h afin que les marcheurs finissent ensemble au fil d'arrivée. L'inscription est gratuite et un dîner populaire ainsi qu'une collation seront offerts aux participants. Un souper sera également offert par la communauté d'Odanak à tous les marcheurs. L'événement est rendu possible grâce à nos partenaires soit Santé Canada, le gouvernement du Québec, Québec en forme et le Centre des Premières Nations Nikanite de l'UQAC. Pour participer au Challenge Stanley Vollant, il suffit d'aller s'inscrire sur le site Web d'Innu Meshkenu dans la section CHALLENGE, à l'adresse suivante: www.innu-meshkenu.com/fr/le-challenge/demarche-et-inscription.
