    Abstract
    The theoretical model developed in this article predicts that collaboration with top-funded scientists positively affects the number of scientific publications of an individual scientist. Having combined data on funding and publication of Quebec scientists, this article empirically tests the theoretical predictions. This article examines numerous definitions of top-funded scientists as those in the top 10 per cent, or top 5 per cent in terms of total funding, funding from the public sector, and funding from the private sector. The results show that collaborating with such top-funded scientists has a positive effect on a scientist's number of publications, hence confirming our theoretical...

    Knowledge active forgetting: the forgotten side of knowledge management

    , Article PICMET 2009 - 2009 Portland International Conference on Management of Engineering and Technology, Portland, OR, 2 August 2009 through 6 August ; 2009 , Pages 1007-1018 ; 1890843202 (ISBN); 9781890843205 (ISBN) Rezazade Mehrizi, M.

    Abstract
    As Gregory Bateson, the British social scientists, once said "You can't live without an eraser", the process of learning is not a unidirectional way toward accumulation of knowledge, rather, organizations should critically evaluate the value of their knowledge and if necessary, actively forget no-longer-useful knowledge. A brief review of related literature shows that the concept of knowledge active forgetting (KAF) is a crucial aspect of organizational learning and knowledge management. However, many aspects of this topic deserve more attention by researchers. The main gap in the literature seems to be related to the linkage between peculiar aspects of knowledge (such as stickiness, context... 

    Maximum torque per ampere control of permanent magnet synchronous motor using genetic algorithm

    , Article Telkomnika ; Volume 9, Issue 2 , 2011 , Pages 237-244 ; 16936930 (ISSN) Tahami, F ; Nademi, H ; Rezaei, M ; Sharif University of Technology
    Abstract
    Permanent magnet synchronous motor (PMSM) drives have many advantages over other drives, i.e. high efficiency and high power density. Particularly, PMSMs are epoch-making and are intensively studied among researchers, scientists and engineers. This paper deals with a novel high performance controller based on genetic algorithm. The scheme allows the motor to be driven with maximum torque per ampere characteristic. In this paper assuming an appropriate fitness function, the optimum values for d-axis current of motor set points at each time are found and then applied to the controller. Simulation results show the successful operation of the proposed controller  

    Nanotechnology in the public eye: The case of Iran, as a developing country

    , Article Journal of Nanoparticle Research ; Volume 13, Issue 8 , 2011 , Pages 3511-3519 ; 13880764 (ISSN) Farshchi, P ; Sadrnezhaad, S. K ; Nejad, N. M ; Mahmoodi, M ; Ibrahimi Ghavam Abadi, L ; Sharif University of Technology

    Abstract
    Using survey data, public awareness of and attitudes toward nanotechnology are examined in Iran (N ≥ 759). Iran is a developing country with a national nanotechnology action plan for a ten year period starting from 2003 and has been active in the field of research and development of nanotechnology meanwhile. First, the results show that majority of people are still not familiar with nanotechnology and perceived risks posed by this technology are not considered to be a lot and most people feel its benefits outweigh the risks. The emotions toward this technology are of a hopeful and positive nature and this technology is looked upon favorably in Iran. In particular, our results reveals that... 

    Upcoming challenges of future electric power systems: Sustainability and resiliency

    , Article Scientia Iranica ; Volume 23, Issue 4 , 2016 , Pages 1565-1577 ; 10263098 (ISSN) Fotuhi Firuzabad, M ; Safdarian, A ; Moeini Aghtaie, M ; Ghorani, R ; Rastegar, M ; Farzin, H ; Sharif University of Technology

    Abstract
    Going back and taking a quick glance at the history of developed countries prove that prosperity of any society is tightly intertwined with resiliency and sustainability of its preliminary infrastructures. Surely, in modern societies, electricity is among the most important infrastructures whose resiliency and sustainability are a key driving force toward development of the society. This is verified by the fact that since the industrial revolution, per capita electricity consumption has been taken as a key index showing the level of economic development and standard of living in a country. This paper focuses on the concept of resiliency and sustainability of electric power systems. The... 

    Temperature-aware power consumption modeling in Hyperscale cloud data centers

    , Article Future Generation Computer Systems ; Volume 94 , 2019 , Pages 130-139 ; 0167739X (ISSN) Rezaei Mayahi, M ; Rezazad, M ; Sarbazi Azad, H ; Sharif University of Technology

    Abstract
    Since the development of data centers, power management (i.e., assessment, consumption and monitoring) has been a great challenge among scientists and engineers. By emerging a new generation of data center in the form of Hyperscale cloud data centers (HCDC), this concern has become more devastating than ever. The huge physical scale and the high level of system utilization through large power compensating system are some of the main characteristics of today's HCDC. The lack of appropriate power assessment from available power estimation models, prevents professionals from designing an accurate HCDCcapacity planning. In particular, during steady state workload processing at the high...

    Abstract
    Being the second-largest country in the Middle East, Iran has a long history of civilisation during which several dynasties have been overthrown and established and health-related structures have been reorganised. Iran has had the replacement of traditional practices with modern medical treatments, emergence of multiple pioneer scientists and physicians with great contributions to the advancement of science, environmental and ecological changes in addition to large-scale natural disasters, epidemics of multiple communicable diseases, and the shift towards non-communicable diseases in recent decades. Given the lessons learnt from political instabilities in the past centuries and the...
