Église d'Auteuil (Paris Métro)

Église d'Auteuil is a station of the Paris Métro in the 16th arrondissement, serving Line 10. With around 172,812 passenger entrances in 2016, it is the least-entered station on the Paris Métro network. However, because this station serves westbound passengers only, the RATP only records station entrances and not exits, it is possible that more passengers exit at Église d'Auteuil than enter. Église d'Auteuil is located in the neighbourhood of Auteuil, one of the westernmost localities in Paris' city proper. There are two access points: both an entrance and exit are available at the Place de Théodore Rivière, while an exit exists on Rue Wilhem at its intersection with Avenue Théophile Gautier. Église d'Auteuil is located close to Mirabeau station. The station opened on 30 September 1913 as part of the extension of line 8 from Beaugrenelle to Porte d'Auteuil. On 29 July 1937, line 10 was extended from Duroc to La Motte-Picquet - Grenelle and the section of line 8 between La Motte-Picquet - Grenelle and Porte d'Auteuil, including Église d'Auteuil, was transferred to line 10.

This station was named Wilhem until 15 May 1921. Wilhem was the pseudonym of Guillaume Louis Bocquillon Wilhem. However, a municipal councillor became convinced that the station was named for Kaiser Wilhelm II of Germany, so it was renamed following World War I after a nearby church, Notre-Dame-d'Auteuil.

NCOA6

Nuclear receptor coactivator 6 is a protein that in humans is encoded by the NCOA6 gene. The protein encoded by this gene is a transcriptional coactivator that can interact with nuclear hormone receptors to enhance their transcriptional activator functions; the encoded protein has been shown to be involved in the hormone-dependent coactivation of several receptors, including prostanoid, vitamin D3, thyroid hormone, steroid receptors. The encoded protein may act as a general coactivator since it has been shown to interact with some basal transcription factors, histone acetyltransferases, methyltransferases.

International Conference on Intelligent Tutoring Systems

The International Conference on Intelligent Tutoring Systems is the oldest conference series in the field of intelligent educational systems. It was established in 1988 by Claude Frasson; the first several events were held every four years and, while engaging a broad international audience, were always located in Montreal, Canada. The growth of the field encouraged the transformation into a biannual internationally-organized event, held every other year, opposite the International Conference on Artificial Intelligence in Education. Since 1992, the Proceedings of the conference are being published by Springer in the popular Lecture Notes in Computer Science series; the conference was hosted in Montreal by Claude Frasson and Gilles Gauthier in 1988, 1992, 1996, 2000. The conference hosted by Roger Nkambou and Susanne Lajoie. ITS 2010 was held in Pittsburgh, hosted by Jack Mostow, Judy Kay, Vincent Aleven. ITS 2012 was held in Chania, hosted by George Papadourakis, Stefano Cerri and William Clancey.

ITS 2014 was held in Honolulu, hosted by Martha Crosby, Stefan Trausan-Matu, Kristy Elizabeth Boyer. In 2018 the ITS 2018 conference is once again back to Montreal, hosted by Roger Nkambou, for the 30th anniversary of the series; the 11th International Conference on Intelligent Tutoring Systems – Co-adaptation in Learning – Chania The 10th International Conference on Intelligent Tutoring Systems – Bridges to Learning – Pittsburgh The 9th International Conference on Intelligent Tutoring Systems - Intelligent Tutoring Systems: Past and Future – Montreal The 8th International Conference on Intelligent Tutoring Systems
