"Unlimited Visibility: A History of the Washington State School for the Blind" is much more than a dry listing of names and dates. We try, through archived materials and remembrances of alumni, teachers and friends, to put a human face to the issue of preparing the blind and visually impaired for life in the "real world." Along the way we meet inspiring folks such as Robert Irwin, the first graduate of what was then the "School for Defective Youth," who worked his way through college hawking cigars and went on to become a national and world leader in the education of the blind. Or Christy Gilbrough, a deaf and blind student who hasn't let her limitations keep her from holding down a job and pursuing learning even at the age of 66. And then there's the fellow who stranded a donkey on the roof of a school building in retaliation for being called a jackass by the superintendent.We believe this book to be relevant to more than the estimated 3 million blind and visually impaired people in the U.S. The hard lessons learned in providing proper preparation for the blind can be used to enrich the lives of all our country's students.

The study of what can be computed by a team of autonomous mobile robots, originally started in robotics and AI, has become increasingly popular in theoretical computer science (especially in distributed computing), where it is now an integral part of the investigations on computability by mobile entities. The robots are identical computational entities located and able to move in a spatial universe; they operate without explicit communication and are usually unable to remember the past; they are extremely simple, with limited resources, and individually quite weak. However, collectively the robots are capable of performing complex tasks, and form a system with desirable fault-tolerant and self-stabilizing properties. The research has been concerned with the computational aspects of such systems. In particular, the focus has been on the minimal capabilities that the robots should have in order to solve a problem. This book focuses on the recent algorithmic results in the field of distributed computing by oblivious mobile robots (unable to remember the past). After introducing the computational model with its nuances, we focus on basic coordination problems: pattern formation, gathering, scattering, leader election, as well as on dynamic tasks such as flocking. For each of these problems, we provide a snapshot of the state of the art, reviewing the existing algorithmic results. In doing so, we outline solution techniques, and we analyze the impact of the different assumptions on the robots' computability power.

The volume LNCS 7269 constitutes the refereed proceedings of the International Symposium on Swarm Intelligence and Differential Evolution, SIDE 2012, held in Zakopane, Poland, in April/May 2012 in conjunction with the 11th International Conference on Artificial Intelligence and Soft Computing, ICAISC 2012 (proceedings published as two-volume set LNAI 7267 and 7268). The 212 revised full papers presented were carefully reviewed and selected from 483 submissions. The volume is divided into two topical parts: proceedings of the 2012 symposium on swarm intelligence and differential evolution and on evolutionary algorithms and their applications.
