Child/machine interaction in reflexive environment. The MIROR platform - Addessi, Anna Rita
This paper introduces the MIROR Platform, an innovative adaptive device for music and dance education, proposed in the framework of the EU-ICT project MIROR-Musical Interaction Relying On Reflexion. In concluding the MIROR project, 3 software applications (MIROR-Impro, MIROR-Compo and MIROR-Body Gesture) and the draft version of the User’s and Teacher’s Guides have been accomplished. In this paper, the technological and pedagogical principles of the MIROR platform, notably the “reflexive interaction” paradigm, the 3 applications and related experiments will be introduced. Finally, the draft of the full architecture of the platform is presented.

Tradurre Figure / Translating Figurative Language
Tradurre Figure / Translating Figurative Language offers 30 original contributions on the interlingual translation of figurative language.

Written in either English or Italian, the different...
Sewage sludge: characteristics and recovery options - Bonfiglioli, Luca; Bianchini, Augusto; Pellegrini, Marco; Saccani, Cesare
In this paper, an overview on sewage sludge characteristics and recovery routes is presented. Starting from an analysis of typical sewage sludge characteristics as found in literature, the most promising disposal options are presented. A focus on incinerated sewage sludge ash (ISSA) follows. Most of the authors agree on considering pyrolysis and gasification as the most viable treatments for sludge in the near future. For this reason, the last two chapters offer a brief description of these two processes and their products.
