  • Buchanan, George; Hinze, Annika (Association for Computing Machinery, Inc. (ACM), 2005)
    Users of modern digital libraries (DLs) can keep themselves up-to-date by searching and browsing their favorite collections, or more conveniently by resorting to an alerting service. The alerting service notifies its clients ...
  • Luz, Saturnino; Masoodian, Masood (ACM, 2014)
    This study investigates the readability (interpretability) of information presented on a geographical map onto which a semi-transparent multivariate selection layer has been overlaid. The investigation is based on an ...
  • Laughlin, Daniel C.; Joshi, Chaitanya (Elsevier, 2015)
    Every species on Earth fills a unique environmental niche that is driven, in part, by the process of environmental filtering, where the adaptive value of the functional traits of individuals determine their fitness within ...
  • Hocking, Graeme Charles; Forbes, Lawrence K.; Stokes, Tim E. (Cambridge University Press, 2014)
    The steady, axisymmetric flow induced by a point sink (or source) submerged in an unbounded inviscid fluid is computed. The resulting deformation of the free surface is obtained, and a limit of steady solutions is found ...
  • Hinze, Annika; Junmanee, Saijai (Gesellschaft fur Informatik, 2005)
    An advanced mobile tourist information system delivers information about sights and events on a tourists travel route. The system should be personalized in its interaction with the tourist. Data that can be used for ...
  • Al-Anazi, Mohammed; Hinze, Annika; Vanderschantz, Nicholas; Timpany, Claire; Cunningham, Sally Jo (Springer, 2014)
    This paper discusses optionsfor tracking academic reading material and introduces a personal digital library solution. We combined and extended the open source projects Zotero and Greenstone such that material can be easily ...
  • Vanderschantz, Nicholas; Timpany, Claire; Hinze, Annika; Cunningham, Sally Jo (Springer, 2014)
    This paper explores how families select books for leisure reading. We recruited 17 families (adults and children) for this study, and spent time with each in both bookshops and public libraries. Our research aims to add ...
  • Timpany, Claire; Vanderschantz, Nicholas; Hinze, Annika; Cunningham, Sally Jo; Wright, Kristy (Springer, 2014)
    We report on a study of children and parents shared reading of interactive printed books. We investigated the differences between books with interactive features and books with expressive typography in order to evaluate ...
  • Littlewood, Haley; Hinze, Annika; Vanderschantz, Nicholas; Timpany, Claire; Cunningham, Sally Jo (Springer, 2014)
    Even though libraries have been offering eBooks for more than a decade, very little is known about eBook access and consumption in academic library collections. This paper addresses this gap with a log analysis study of ...
  • Schlegel, Alexa; Hesse, Ralf; Hinze, Annika (Gesellschaft für Informatik, 2012)
    Automatically creating semantic enrichments for text may lead to annotations that allow for excellent recall but poor precision. Manual enrichment is potentially more targeted, leading to greater precision. We aim to support ...
  • Ienco, Dino; Bifet, Albert; Pfahringer, Bernhard; Poncelet, Pascal (ACM, 2014)
    Detecting change in evolving data streams is a central issue for accurate adaptive learning. In real world applications, data streams have categorical features, and changes induced in the data distribution of these categorical ...
  • Laing, Simon; Masoodian, Masood (Wiley-Blackwell, 2015)
    Existing computer technologies poorly support the ideation phase common to graphic design practice. Finding and indexing visual material to assist the process of ideation often fall on the designer, leading to user experiences ...
  • Luz, Saturnino; Masoodian, Masood; Cesario, Manuel; Cesario, Raquel Rangel; Rogers, Bill (ACM, 2014)
    Many developing regions around the world rely on community-based healthcare strategies and practices to deal with prevention and control of often neglected diseases, by educating the local population and healthcare ...
  • Masoodian, Masood; Mohd Yusof, Azmi; Rogers, Bill (Wiley, 2014)
    Most 3D modelling software have been developed for conventional 2D displays, and as such, lack support for true depth perception. This contributes to making polygonal 3D modelling tasks challenging, particularly when models ...
  • Frank, Eibe; Mayo, Michael; Kramer, Stefan (ACM Press, 2015)
    Model tree induction is a popular method for tackling regression problems requiring interpretable models. Model trees are decision trees with multiple linear regression models at the leaf nodes. In this paper, we propose ...
  • Harris, R. Alan; Nagy-Szakal, Dorottya; Mir, Sabina A.V.; Frank, Eibe; Szigeti, Reka; Kaplan, Jess L.; Bronsky, Jiri; Opekun, Antone; Ferry, George D.; Winter, Harland; Kellermayer, Richard
    Inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) are emerging globally, indicating that environmental factors may be important in their pathogenesis. Colonic mucosal epigenetic changes, such as DNA methylation, can occur in response to ...
  • Litvinenko, Yuri E.; McMahon, Liam C. (Elsevier Ltd, 2015)
    The formation of a current sheet in a weakly collisional plasma can be modelled as a finite-time singularity solution of magnetohydrodynamic equations. We use an exact self-similar solution to confirm and generalise a ...
  • Broughan, Kevin A.; Zhou, Qizhi (University of Waterloo, 2014)
    We find the form of all solutions to ø(n) | σ(n) with three or fewer prime factors, except when the quotient is 4 and n is even.
  • Pena, Patricia N.; Bravo, H. J.; da Cunha, A. E. C.; Malik, Robi; Lafortune, S.; Cury, José E. R. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Inc., 2014)
    The observer property is an important condition to be satisfied by abstractions of Discrete Event System (DES) models. This technical note presents a new algorithm that tests if an abstraction of a DES obtained through ...
  • Craig, Ian J.D.; Lopez, N. (European Southern Observatory, 2013)
    Aims. We consider the influence of viscous dissipation on “spine” reconnection solutions in coronal plasmas. It is known from 2D and 3D “fan” reconnection studies that viscous losses can be important. We extend these ...
