UNLABELLED Polytraumatized patients following a severe trauma suffer from substantial disturbances of the immune system. Secondary organ dysfunction syndromes due to early hyperinflammation and late immunparalysis contribute to adverse outcome. Consequently the principle of damage control surgery / orthopedics developed in the last two decades to limit(More)

Monte Carlo simulation is often used to solve radiative transfer problems where complex physical phenomena and geometries must be handled. Slow convergence is a well known disadvantage of this method. In this paper we demonstrate that a significant improvement in computation time can be achieved by using Quasi-Monte Carlo (QMC) methods to simulate Rapid(More)
In HRI anthropomorphism has been considered to be a uni-dimensional construct. However, social psychological studies of the potentially reverse process to anthropomorphisation - known as dehumanization - indicate that there are two distinct senses of humanness with different consequences for people who are dehumanized by deprivation of some of the aspects(More)
This paper suggests new methodology for measuring User Experience in HRI. We suggest using implicit attitude to predict User Experience (Affect). Therefore we show a first validation study. The study uses short videos of a robot (IURO - Interactive Urban Robot) approaching a person and asking for the. IURO either approached a walking or a standing person.(More)
We present insights from a study on communicating Synthetic Biology conducted in 2008. Scientists were invited to write press releases on their work; the resulting texts were passed on to four journalists from major Austrian newspapers and magazines. The journalists in turn wrote articles that were used as stimulus material for eight group discussions with(More)
It is the aim of this paper to show on a meta-level how studies in public places can contribute to positively influence people's attitude towards robots. By means of examining objective and subjective data gathered in the lab and data from field studies, it will be shown how people's experiences with a robot outside the sheltering laboratory surroundings(More)
