This paper describes a simple distributed simulation for support of emergency response exercises. The simulation, called the Immersive Synthetic Environment for Exercises (ISEE), was inspired by the simplicity of Web-based role playing games (RPGs) which have all the elements of distributed simulations, but do not rely on complex interoperability software(More)
This paper describes NetSim, a simulation framework designed to support distributed cyber exercises. NetSim is a collection of applications that include a simulation engine, web servers, CGI applications, mySQL databases, and Perl scripts. The core of NetSim is NetEngine, a fluid flow simulation model of network traffic. NetEngine simulates network traffic(More)
The National Incident Management System (NIMS), published in 2004, is the blueprint for emergency response in the 21 st century. The NIMS vision includes many elements that are familiar to military community, including realistic incident command exercises and a technology-enabled common operational picture. NIMS is ambitious and will likely take many years(More)
This paper describes a multi-parametric user interface based around the Musical Instrument Digital Interface (MIDI) Creator system developed at York which provides MIDI data in response to changing pressures on five strain gauge sensors to control the fundamental frequency, first three formants and the overall amplitude of synthesized speech. Vocal(More)
This thesis examines how the New York Times, Chicago Tribune, and Los Angeles Times covered and represented the Truth and Reconciliation Commission in South Africa and the Truth and Reconciliation Commission and Special Court for Sierra Leone in Sierra Leone. This work discusses the complexities of transitional justice, especially focusing on the role of(More)
