  • The modern economy is driven by technologies and knowledge. Digital technologies can free, shift and multiply choices, often intruding on the space of other industries, by providing new ways of conducting business operations and creating values for customers and companies. The topics covered in this volume include software agents, multi-agent systems, agent modelling, mobile and cloud computing, big data analysis, business intelligence, artificial intelligence, social systems, computer embedded systems and nature inspired manufacturing, etc. that contribute to the modern Digital Economy.This volume highlights new trends and challenges in agent, new digital and knowledge economy research and includes 28 papers classified in the following specific topics: business process management, agent-based modeling and simulation, anthropic-oriented computing, learning paradigms, business informatics and gaming, digital economy, and advances in networked virtual enterprises. Published papers were selected for presentation at the 10th KES Conference on Agent and Multi-Agent Systems: Technologies and Applications (KES-AMSTA 2016) held in Puerto de la Cruz, Tenerife, Spain. Presented results would be of theoretical and practical value to researchers and industrial practitioners working in the fields of artificial intelligence, collective computational intelligence, innovative business models,  new digital and knowledge economy and, in particular, agent and multi-agent systems, technologies, tools and applications.

  • Mais l'ennui nous prend parfois par surprise, comme une mélancolie, le retour de cet antique amour du réel provient de Ce que dit l'écorce de Nicolas Lévesque et Catherine Mavrikakis et titre le numéro d'été de Moebius, dirigé par Jean-Philippe Michaud et Chloé Savoie-Bernard. L'ennui est-il l'occasion de retrouver dans le réel un éclat de vie qui nous aurait échappé dans le temps? Faire un pas de côté vers la mélancolie, laisser errer son âme l'instant de retomber, peut-être, amoureux du présent, c'est à cela que vous convie quatre prosateurs et dix poètes. Dans cet entre-deux temporel, ils ont les pieds sur un tremplin qui peut les mener au mieux comme au pire, avec devant les yeux l'encre de la mélancolie, et la perte comme moteur. Retrouvez aussi dans ce numéro, Jean-Marc Beausoleil et Laurence Pelletier dans la rubrique « les yeux fertiles » et la « lettre à un écrivain vivant » de Pierre-Luc Landry à Nicholas Giguère.

  • This inspiring resource presents theories, findings, and interventions from Positive Suicidology, an emerging strengths-based approach to suicide prevention. Its synthesis of positive psychology and suicidology theories offers a science-based framework for promoting wellbeing to complement or, if appropriate, replace traditional deficit-driven theories and therapies used in reducing suicidal thoughts and behaviors. Coverage reviews interpersonal, intrapersonal, and societal risk factors for suicide, and identifies protective factors, such as hope and resilience, that can be enhanced in therapy. From there, chapters detail a palette of approaches and applications of Positive Suicidology, from the powerful motivating forces described in Self-Determination Theory to meaning-building physical and social activities.

    Among the topics covered:

    Future-oriented constructs and their role in suicidal ideation and enactment.
    /> Gratitude as a protective factor for suicidal ideation and behavior: theory and evidence.
    Considering race and ethnicity in the use of positive psychological approaches to suicide.
    The Six R's framework as mindfulness for suicide prevention.
    Community-based participatory research and empowerment for suicide prevention.
    Applied resiliency and suicide prevention: a strengths-based, risk-reduction framework.

    Psychotherapists, counselors, social workers, psychiatrists, and health psychologists, as well as educators, clergy and healthcare professionals, will find A Positive Psychological Approach to Suicide an invaluable source of contemporary evidence-based strategies for their prevention and intervention efforts with suicidal clients.

  • This book explores narratives produced in the Maghreb in order to illustrate shortcomings of imagination in the discipline of international relations (IR). It focuses on the politics of narrating postcolonial Maghreb through a number of writers, including Abdelkebir Khatibi, Fatema Mernissi, Kateb Yacine and Jacques Derrida, who explicitly embraced the task of (re)imagining their respective societies after colonial independence and subsequent nation-building processes. Narratives are thus considered political acts speaking to the turbulent context in which postcolonial Maghrebian Francophone literature emerges as sites of resistance and contestation. Throughout the chapters, the author promotes an encounter between narratives from the Maghreb and IR and makes a case for the kinds of thinking and writing strategies that could be used to better approach international and global studies.

    Édito :
    Le Cafard hérétique n'a de cesse de muer, pourvu qu'il s'amuse. Ça peut prendre du temps et alors ? Quel mal y a-t-il à faire les choses bien ?
    Après un clin d'oeil et deux numéros Timult-ueux ourlés de bleu, Le Cafard hérétique s'est laissé séduire par les coups de pinceau de Francis Caudron, un artiste rouennais à l'univers bigarré, chamarré, inventif et luxuriant, tantôt facétieux, tantôt grave, qui sans cesse dans un mouvement spontané ou étudié interroge le signe, l'écriture, en quête d'une lecture qu'offrent ici les mots des poètes recueillis.
    Ce sont quelques-unes de ses oeuvres qui rehaussent superbement ce numéro spécial. À votre tour, laissez-vous séduire. Et, bonne lecture !
