Sasso L. Vol. 21. L.; Boston: Wolters Kluwer Law & Bisiness, Kluwer Law International, 2013.

Despite a clear distinction in law between equity and debt, the results of such a categorization can be misleading. The growth of financial innovation in recent decades necessitates the allocation of control and cash-flow rights in a way that diverges from the classic understanding. Some of the financial instruments issued by companies, so-called hybrid instruments, fall into a grey area between debt and equity, forcing regulators to look beyond the legal form of an instrument to its practical substance. This innovative study, by emphasizing the agency relations and the property law claims embedded in the use of such unconventional instruments, analyses and discusses the governance regulation of hybrids in a way that is primarily functional, departing from more common approaches that focus on tax advantages and internal corporate control. The author assesses the role of hybrid instruments in the modern company, unveiling the costs and benefits of issuing these securities, recognizing and categorizing the different problem fields in which hybrids play an important role, and identifying legal and contracting solutions to governance and finance problems. The full-scale analysis compares the UK law dealing with hybrid instruments with the corresponding law of the most relevant US jurisdictions in relation to company law. The following issues, among many others, are raised:

– decisions under uncertainty when the risks of opportunism of the parties is very high;

− contract incompleteness and ex post conflicts;

− protection of convertible bondholders in mergers and acquisitions and in assets disposal;

− use of convertible bonds to reorganise and restructure a firm;

− timing of the conversion and the issuer’s call option;

− majority-minority conflict in venture capital financing;

− duty of loyalty;

− fiduciary duties to preference shareholders; and

− financial contract design for controlling the board’s power in exit events.

Throughout, the analysis includes discussion, comparison, and evaluation of statutory provisions, existing legal standards, and strategies for protection. It is unlikely that a more thorough or informative account exists of the complex regulatory problems created by hybrid financial instruments and of the different ways in which regulatory regimes have responded to the problems they raise. Because business parties in these jurisdictions have a lot of scope and a strong incentive to contract for their rights, this book will also be of uncommon practical value to corporate counsel and financial regulators as well as to interested academics.

Presents over twenty case studies drawn from practical experience ; Demonstrates how success is measured, providing reader with tools for implementation; Organized around five themes with specific comments for case comparisons from experts in the field; Introduces readers to several contexts that can be applied in various situations; Resource for further study of service innovation

Case Studies in Service Innovation provides the reader fresh insight into how innovation occurs in practice, and stimulates learning from one context to another. The volume brings together contributions from researchers and practitioners in a celebration of achievements with the intention of adding to the wider understanding of how service innovation develops. Each case presents a brief description of the context in which the innovation occurred, the opportunity that led to the innovation and an overview of the innovation itself, also addressing how success was measured, what success has been achieved to date and providing links to further information.

The book is organized around five major themes, each reflecting recognized sources of service innovation: Business Model Innovation: new ways of creating, delivering or capturing economic, social, environmental and other types of value; The Organization in its Environment: an organization engaging beyond its own boundaries, with public private partnerships, sourcing knowledge externally, innovation networks, and open or distributed innovation; Innovation Management within an Organization: an organization actively encouraging innovation within its own boundaries using project teams, internal governance of innovation, and methods or tools that stimulate innovation; Process Innovation: changes in service design and delivery processes, such as consumer led innovation or consumers as part of the innovation process, service operations management, and educational processes; Technology Innovation: the use of technology, including ICT enabled innovation, ICTs that are themselves innovative and support the delivery of new services, new ICT services, new ways of delivering services associated with ICT products, and technology other than ICT.

The final part of the book is given to four extended cases allowing for a more in-depth treatment of innovation within a complex service system. The extended cases also illustrate two important and growing trends, firstly the need for, and benefits of, a more customer centric approach to service innovation and secondly the need for better understanding of public services and the role of public-private partnerships in identifying and achieving innovation

Sergueï Karp. Vol. I: 1764-1778. Ferney-Voltaire: Centre international d'étude du XVIIIe siècle, 2016.

La parution du premier tome de la correspondance de Catherine II et Friedrich Melchior Grimm vient couronner une entreprise de longue haleine dirigée par Sergueï Karp, l’édition critique des lettres échangées entre 1764 à 1796 par l’impératrice russe avec le directeur de la Correspondance littéraire. Les lettres contenues dans ce volume sont en effet précieuses pour éclairer les relations entre l’Impératrice et le milieu philosophique et artistique. Durant toute cette période, Grimm – auquel la souveraine s’adresse avec familiarité sur le mode de la conversation, en un français parfois truffé de remarques en allemand – circule une grande partie du temps entre la Russie, les Provinces- Unies, l’Italie, puis de nouveau la Russie, la Suède et le Danemark avant de revenir en France à la fin de l’année 1777. Il s’affirme de plus en plus comme « un intermédiaire essentiel dans les relations culturelles » de Catherine II avec l’Occident, particulièrement dans le domaine des arts, se chargeant de traiter avec les artistes, les intermédiaires et les marchands, à Paris et à Rome, pour le compte de la tsarine.

Polishchuk L., Firsov E. Y. M.: 2007.

Cause-related marketing is a business strategy where firms bundle their products and brands with contributions to designated charities. The double appeal of this strategy is that it responds to societal pressure for “corporate social responsibility” and at the same time could prove commercially profitable. The paper inquires into the origins and incidence of economic gains of cause-related marketing. It identifies two sources of its profitability – first, corporations utilize their advantages over households in covering transaction costs of philanthropy, and second, can exploit cause-related marketing as a price-discrimination tool. Cause-related marketing channels to charity significant resources that would not be available otherwise due to high transaction costs of individual donations. It thus contributes to social welfare and, at the same time, to the bottom-line of practicing firms. This explains the observed rapid proliferation of this strategy against the overall stagnation and even decline of corporate philanthropy.

Obydenkova A., Libman A. L.; NY: Routledge, 2015.

In recent decades, the regions of Russia have taken different paths of regime transition. Despite the consolidation of an autocratic regime at national level and the centralization steered by Vladimir Putin’s government, the variation across sub-national regimes persists. Using an innovative theoretical framework, this book explores both causes and consequences of democratization in the regions of Russia. It is the first study in the field to systematically integrate structural and agency approaches in order to account for economic, social, historical and international causes of democratization and to trace its consequences. By focusing on the challenging and under-studied topic of sub-national regimes, the book provides a unique perspective on regime transition and the new theoretical framework contributes to a better understanding of democratization world-wide. The book will be of key interest to scholars and students of democratization, sub-national regimes, East European politics, comparative politics, post-communism, and international relations.

Concept discovery is a Knowledge Discovery in Databases (KDD) research field that uses human-centered techniques such as Formal Concept Analysis (FCA), Biclustering, Triclustering, Conceptual Graphs etc. for gaining insight into the underlying conceptual structure of the data. Traditional machine learning techniques are mainly focusing on structured data whereas most data available resides in unstructured, often textual, form. Compared to traditional data mining techniques, human-centered instruments actively engage the domain expert in the discovery process. This volume contains the contributions to CDUD 2011, the International Workshop on Concept Discovery in Unstructured Data (CDUD) held in Moscow. The main goal of this workshop was to provide a forum for researchers and developers of data mining instruments working on issues with analyzing unstructured data. We are proud that we could welcome 13 valuable contributions to this volume. The majority of the accepted papers described innovative research on data discovery in unstructured texts. Authors worked on issues such as transforming unstructured into structured information by amongst others extracting keywords and opinion words from texts with Natural Language Processing methods. Multiple authors who participated in the workshop used methods from the conceptual structures field including Formal Concept Analysis and Conceptual Graphs. Applications include but are not limited to text mining police reports, sociological definitions, movie reviews, etc.

Concept discovery is a subarea of Knowledge Discovery in Databases (KDD) where concept models, such as Formal Concept Analysis (FCA), multimodal clustering, conceptual graphs and other, are used for gaining insight into the underlying conceptual structure of data. Traditional machine learning techniques are mainly focusing on structured data given by object-attribute tables, whereas most data available nowadays are given in unstructured, often textual, form. As compared to traditional data mining techniques, human-centered instruments of concept discovery actively engage domain experts in the discovery process. This volume contains the papers presented at the 2nd International Workshop on Concept Discovery in Unstructured Data (CDUD 2012) held on May 10, 2012 at the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, Belgium. This workshop welcomes papers describing innovative research on data discovery in complex data. Moreover, this workshop provides a forum for researchers and developers of data mining instruments, working on issues associated with analyzing unstructured data. This year the committee decided to accept 11 papers for publication in the proceedings. Each submission was reviewed by on average 3 program committee members. A. Mestrovic presents an application of concept lattices to semantic matching in Croatian language. A. Chepovskiy et al. propose a method for automatic language identi cation for transliterated texts. X. Naidenova describes a novel neural network based data structure for inferring classi cation tests. A. Kravchenko et al. introduce an approach for expert search which is based on analyzing e-mail communication patterns. D. Ustalov et al. propose an ontologybased approach for text-to-picture synthesis. A. Skabin presents a computerized recognition system for hand-written historical manuscripts. A. Panchenko et al. extract semantic relations between concepts from Wikipedia using KNN algorithms. D. Fedyanin uses parameter identi cation methods for Markov models and applies them to influence analysis in social networks. S. Milyaev et al. discuss a new method for self-tuning semantic image segmentation. A. Vorobev proposes a probabilistic model for evaluating the quality level of projects, authors and experts in collaborative innovation platforms. D. Gnatyshak et al. present a novel pseudo-triclustering algorithm and applied it to online social network data. A. Bozhenyuk et al. discuss methods for maximum flow and minimum cost flow fi nding in fuzzy setting. We would like to express our gratitude to all contributing authors and reviewers.

Concept discovery is a subdomain of Knowledge Discovery (KDD) that uses

human-centered techniques such as Formal Concept Analysis (FCA), Topic Mod-

eling, Visual Text Representations, Conceptual Graphs etc. for gaining insight

into the underlying conceptual structure of the data. Traditional machine learn-

ing techniques are mainly focusing on structured data whereas most data avail-

able resides in unstructured, often textual, form. Compared to traditional data

mining techniques, human-centered instruments actively engage the domain ex-

pert in the discovery process.

This volume contains the papers presented at the 3rd International Workshop

on Concept Discovery in Unstructured Data (CDUD 2016) held on July 18,

2018 at the National Research University Higher School of Economics, Moscow,

Russia. This workshop welcomes papers describing innovative research on data

discovery in complex data. It particular, it provides a forum for researchers and

developers of text mining instruments, whose research is related to the analysis

of linguistic and text data.

This year 15 papers had been submitted. Each submission has been reviewed,

at least, by 2 program committee members. Seven papers have been accepted

for regular publication in the proceedings, and three more submissions for pub-

lication as project proposals or abstracts.

Papers included in this volume cover a wide range of topics related to text

mining and structures for text representation: text navigation, statistical learning

models, automatic author or field identification in texts, among others.

An invited talk given by Natalia Loukachevitch from Moscow State Univer-

sity has opened the workshop program. She has surveyed modern tasks and

approaches in sentiment analysis of Twitter messages.

Our deep gratitude goes to all the authors of submitted papers, as well as

to the Program Committee members for their commitment. We also would like

to thank our invited speaker and our sponsors: National Research University

Higher School of Economics (Moscow, Russia), Russian Foundation for Basic

Research, and ExactPro. Finally, we would like to acknowledge the EasyChair

system which helped us to manage the reviewing process.

The contemporary marketing practices methodology (CMP) attracts attention of a substantial number of researchers in the field of strategic marketing. In the past two decades there were more than fifty papers published in peer-reviewed outlets addressing the analytics of usage of contemporary marketing practices in a variety of countries and industries. In this note we discuss reliability of these studies with respect to the usage of specific analytic tools. First, we demonstrate that standard clustering analysis is relatively sensitive to small changes in the datasets with companies being assigned to different clusters at frequent rates. Second, the project national teams make use of different, often incompatible settings. Therefore, to make possible comparisons between the countries and across industries, the researchers must agree on a generic setup and procedures. We conclude the note sketching the basics of these common grounds.

Vol. 2135 : Third Conference on Software Engineering and Information Management (SEIM-2018) (full papers). 2018.

The Third Conference on Software Engineering and Information Management (SEIM-2018) opens its doors to young researchers and practitioners in different areas of computer science and software engineering, providing an opportunity to present their research, discuss state-of-the-art technology and engage in useful networking. We consider SEIM-2018 to mainly focus on researchers who are just starting out their scientific careers, and hope to ease their introduction to the conference process. On the other hand, SEIM might also be of interest to more experienced researchers, who are aimed at sharing their research with a wider scientific community.

These proceedings include the SEIM-2018 papers, which were selected by the Program Committee for publication in CEUR-WS.org. These papers passed not only the original review procedure, but also an additional round of post-review with the conference feedback. The additional information about the SEIM conference series can be found on the conference website at: http://2018.seim-conf.org/
