The additional worth lies in what they, the contributors, took away in new rules for destiny learn and perform, and within the new networks that have been shaped, either digital and actual. as well as Keynote Addresses and Paper displays from foreign authors, there have been Provocative Paper classes, Case experiences, Focussed Debates and inventive alternate periods in addition to expert operating teams who debated specific issues. The Focussed Debate periods helped to stimulate the feel of engagement between convention individuals. A marketplace position with follow-up operating teams used to be a good spotlight and galvanised members to provide attention-grabbing stories. those have been provided to the convention on its final day. Cross-fertilisation among the papers generated a few impressive and necessary cross-referencing and a plethora of social, moral and cognitive concerns emerged within the discussions that the paper presentations.

This recommends three representations of concepts to be learned - enactive (lower level), iconic (medium level), and symbolic (highest level). Criterion of Time.

The contents of the first s:Sm registers are considered as the output. So the machine computes a function f: IN{~INo5 • This simple machine model is extremely powerful: a register machine with only two registers can compute any computable function and so can simulate any computer. The key idea is clever coding of the storage into a single register. The coding is also an application of orthogonalization. 24 Andreas Schwill Orthogonalization does not stop here. A further step would be to reduce the number of instructions leading to a single instruction computer with equivalent power whose only instruction is subtract 1 and jump to
