Scientific data represents a significant portion of the linked open data cloud and scientists stand to benefit from the data fusion capability this will afford. Publishing linked data into the cloud, however, doesn't ensure the required reusability. Publishing has requirements of provenance, quality, credit, attri-bution and methods to provide the(More)
myExperiment (http://www.myexperiment.org) is an online research environment that supports the social sharing of bioinformatics workflows. These workflows are procedures consisting of a series of computational tasks using web services, which may be performed on data from its retrieval, integration and analysis, to the visualization of the results. As a(More)
Clinical factors were studied in a population based survey of 1,116 cases of testicular neoplasms in Victoria, Australia, between 1950 and 1978. The ratio of right to left sided tumours was 54:46, but the left side predominated among sarcomas (P = 0.006), and in older men. The relative risk (RR) for men with unilateral maldescent was 15 (CI 10-23) and for(More)
In this paper we describe an investigation into the requirements for and the use of in-situ authoring in the creation of location based pervasive and UbiComp experiences. We will focus on the co-design process with users that resulted in a novel visitor experience to a historic country estate. This has informed the design of new, in-situ, authoring tools(More)
As a scoping exercise in the design of our Social Machines Observatory we consider the observation of Social Machines "in the wild", as illustrated through two scenarios. More than identifying and classifying individual machines, we argue that we need to study interactions between machines and observe them throughout their lifecycle. We suggest that(More)
A key challenge in co-designing UbiComp is that users may have limited understanding or experience of these technologies. While the value of situated co-design activities for promoting understanding is known, the role of time is less well researched. Here we describe and reflect on a range of co-design activities carried out with the curators of an historic(More)
Thirty-eight patients with malignant mesothelioma of the pleura were seen at Peter MacCallum Cancer Institute between 1981 and 1985. In 35 patients presenting with disease confined to one hemithorax, the following treatments were given: radical surgery, 13 patients: radical radiotherapy, 12 patients; palliative radiotherapy, 20 patients; chemotherapy, 9(More)
We have prepared and supplied cultured epithelial autografts (CEA) to treat 37 burn patients around Australia. The method is a modification of the original methods of Green et al. The confluent 75 cm2 secondary cultures, obtained after less than 3 weeks, are 8-10 cell layers thick after detachment and have a shrinkage of only 7-14 per cent. The patients had(More)
The myExperiment Virtual Research Environment supports the sharing of research objects used by scientists, such as scientific workflows. For researchers it is both a social infrastructure that encourages sharing and a platform for conducting research, through familiar user interfaces. For developers it provides an open, extensible and participative(More)
Changes in the incidence of testicular cancer in Victoria, Australia were studied from 1950 to 1985. Cases from the period 1950 to 1978 were derived from many sources (1116 cases). Emphasis was placed on diagnostic reliability; 97% of cases were confirmed histologically, and of these, 86% were reviewed at the Peter MacCallum Cancer Institute. For the years(More)
