"Architectures of Possibility" theorizes and questions the often unconscious assumptions behind such traditional writing gestures as temporality, scene, and characterization; offers various suggestions for generating writing that resists, rethinks, and challenges authors to push their work into self-aware and surprising territory.

The challenge of creating a real-life computational equivalent of the human mind requires that we better understand at a computational level how natural intelligent systems develop their cognitive and learning functions. In recent years, biologically inspired cognitive architectures have emerged as a powerful new approach toward gaining this kind of understanding (here “biologically inspired” is understood broadly as “brain-mind inspired”). Still, despite impressive successes and growing interest in BICA, wide gaps separate different approaches from each other and from solutions found in biology. Modern scientific societies pursue related yet separate goals, while the mission of the BICA Society consists in the integration of many efforts in addressing the above challenge. Therefore, the BICA Society shall bring together researchers from disjointed fields and communities who devote their efforts to solving the same challenge, despite that they may “speak different languages”. This will be achieved by promoting and facilitating the transdisciplinary study of cognitive architectures, and in the long-term perspective – creating one unifying widespread framework for the human-level cognitive architectures and their implementations. This book is a proceedings of the Third Annual Meeting of the BICA Society, which was hold in Palermo-Italy from October 31 to November 2, 2012. The book describes recent advances and new challenges around the theme of understanding how to create general-purpose humanlike artificial intelligence using inspirations from studies of the brain and the mind.

Distributed systems intertwine with our everyday lives. The benefits and current shortcomings of the underpinning technologies are experienced by a wide range of people and their smart devices. With the rise of large-scale IoT and similar distributed systems, cloud bursting technologies, and partial outsourcing solutions, private entities are encouraged to increase their efficiency and offer unparalleled availability and reliability to their users. The Research Anthology on Architectures, Frameworks, and Integration Strategies for Distributed and Cloud Computing is a vital reference source that provides valuable insight into current and emergent research occurring within the field of distributed computing. It also presents architectures and service frameworks to achieve highly integrated distributed systems and solutions to integration and efficient management challenges faced by current and future distributed systems. Highlighting a range of topics such as data sharing, wireless sensor networks, and scalability, this multi-volume book is ideally designed for system administrators, integrators, designers, developers, researchers, academicians, and students.

Recon?gurable computing (RC) technologies o?er the promise of substantial performance gains over traditional architectures by customizing, sometimes at run-time, the topology of the underlying architecture to match the speci?c needs of a given application. Contemporary con?gurable architectures allow for the de?nition of architectures with functional and storage units that match the s- ci?c needs of a given computation, in terms of function, bit-width and control structures. Compared to standard microprocessor architectures, advantages are possible in terms of power consumption on a broad range of di?erent application ?elds. Moreover, the ?exibility enabled by recon?guration is also seen as a basic technique for overcoming transient failures in emerging device structures. Techniques for achieving recon?gurable systems are numerous and require the joint development of recon?gurable hardware systems to support the dynamic behavior, e.g., suitable programming models, tools and languages, to support the recon?guration process during run-time as well as during design-time. This includes veri?cation techniques that can demonstrate formally correct recon?- ration sequences at each stage. While there are many problems, the existence and development of technologies such as recent multi- and many-core processor arc- tectures, dynamically recon?gurable and multi-grain computing architectures, as well as application-speci?c processors suggest that there is a very strong need for adaptive and recon?gurable systems.

There is fast-growing awareness of the role atmospheres play in architecture. Of equal interest to contemporary architectural practice as it is to aesthetic theory, this 'atmospheric turn' owes much to the work of the German philosopher Gernot Böhme. Atmospheric Architectures: The Aesthetics of Felt Spaces brings together Böhme's most seminal writings on the subject, through chapters selected from his classic books and articles, many of which have hitherto only been available in German. This is the only translated version authorised by Böhme himself, and is the first coherent collection deploying a consistent terminology. It is a work which will provide rich references and a theoretical framework for ongoing discussions about atmospheres and their relations to architectural and urban spaces. Combining philosophy with architecture, design, landscape design, scenography, music, art criticism, and visual arts, the essays together provide a key to the concepts that motivate the work of some of the best contemporary architects, artists, and theorists: from Peter Zumthor, Herzog & de Meuron and Juhani Pallasmaa to Olafur Eliasson and James Turrell. With a foreword by Professor Mark Dorrian (Forbes Chair in Architecture, Edinburgh College of Art) and an afterword by Professor David Leatherbarrow, (Chair of the Graduate Group in Architecture, University of Pennsylvania), the volume also includes a general introduction to the topic, including coverage of it history, development, areas of application and conceptual apparatus.

Since the emergence of VLSI, the relationship between the development of parallel algorithms and the design of special-purpose architecture has always been of major concern. The analysis of this relationship is the main topic of this book. Hardware and software issues closely depend upon one another and cannot be solved independently. Beyond the natural complexity of algorithm design, the designer has to face that of choosing the appropriate technology medium for its efficient realization. The dramatic developments in VLSI technology now offers extraordinary opportunities for implementing complex applications. As application specific/systems can offer 100 to 1000-fold improvements in cost/performance over general purpose computers on applications, they are attracting increasing attention in both academic and industrial communities. Highly specialized application-specific arrays of processors, which are the targeted architectures in this book, are extremely appealing. The papers in this volume give a thorough overview on current research in the areas of parallel algorithms, synthesis methods, VLSI architectures, and design tools.
