Language productivity at work Ghent University
Language patterns are more or less U+2018productiveU+2019, depending on their lexical scope. An interdisciplinary approach is needed to compare attested productivity, in present-day language use as well as through history, to on-line and off-line language processing, and to measure the impact of
personal variables. Only in this way can one arrive at a better understanding of what productivity is.

Motoric, cognitive and linguistic writing process characteristics in Alzheimer's disease: A task validity, cross-sectional and longitudinal study. University of Antwerp
Semantics is at the core of any language based activity in our society but arguably one of the most complex aspects to study. To gain a deeper knowledge in how word meaning is processed and stored in human memory, a number of lexico-semantic models have been proposed. These models have been proven to be instrumental in a number of lines of research, ranging from purely theoretical questions, such as atypical word processing, the structure and ...
Using mathematical concepts and techniques to describe natural phenomena is a challenging but important task in all branches of physics. Although typically well trained in rote mathematical calculation, students often lack an understanding of the mathematical concepts and fail to correctly apply these in a physics context. Student difficulties related to such issues are particularly apparent in an intermediate electrodynamics course that ...

Fault-tolerant network-on-chip design Ghent University
Network-on-chip (NoCs) possess high flexibility and scalability and thus represent an efficient approach for solving the communication problem in multi-core chips. However, it brings about reliability challenges. We focus on providing efficient strategies for mitigating both transient and hard errors in the NoC, for which we will develop fault-tolerant cache coherence protocols.
Sulfide-based nitrogen removal from municipal wastewater Ghent University
This doctoral research project focuses on sulfide-based nitrogen removal from anaerobically pretreated municipal wastewater. The first research line concerns the optimization of sulfide-based nitrogen removal over nitrate in granular sludge reactors. The second research line aims at the realization and optimization of a short-cut sulfide-based nitrogen removal process over nitrite. Reducing emissions of the greenhouse gases N2O and methane, ...
