Most magnetic resonance (MR) imaging systems were originally designed with analog spectrometers, since that was the "state of the art" in the late 1970s, when they were developed. Advances in technology have allowed the design of radio-frequency electronics with a much larger percentage of digital components while the cost of such components has decreased.… (More)
The Council on Scientific Affairs of the California Medical Association presents the following inventory of items of progress in ophthalmology. Each item, in the judgment of a panel of knowledgeable physicians, has recently become reasonably firmly established, both as to scientific fact and important clinical significance. The items are presented in simple… (More)
The 2<sup>nd</sup> International Workshop on Ontology-Driven Software Engineering, held at the ACM SPLASH 2010 conference, was organized with the aim of bringing together researchers and practitioners with an interest in discussing and analyzing the different ways in which ontologies can help to improve the many aspects and areas of software engineering.… (More)
Ontologies (i.e. formalized models of real world domains and systems) are becoming mainstream in the representation and man-agement of data, information and knowledge. In software engineering, however, the adoption of ontology-driven methods and techniques is still at an initial stage of definition and gestation. A series of initiatives by both academic and… (More)
Software systems are intrinsically complex from a number of perspectives. The level of complexity is increasing due to the growing need to integrate different and diverse systems in order to achieve organizational goals (evolving toward ecosystems as an ideal). Effective integration may be argued as important as, from a knowledge-based perspective of… (More)
This workshop represents the 6th in a series of OOPSLA workshops focusing on the impact of semantics on the development and re-engineering of software systems. These workshops include three on 'Semantics of Enterprise Integration' (2001-2003), one on 'Legacy Transformation' (2004) and one on 'Semantic-Based Systems Development' (2007).
