THREE PROBLEMS IN RELATION TO Luciano Floridi's work on the Philosophy of Information (PI) and the relationship of PI to Library and Information Science (LIS) are considered: the claim that LIS is a materials-based discipline, Floridi's claim about Information as a message transfer system, and his downgrading of Social Epistemology to be a subset of PI. The(More)
Cloud computing allows for vast computational resources to be leveraged quickly and easily in bursts as and when required. Here we describe a technique that allows for Monte Carlo radiotherapy dose calculations to be performed using GEANT4 and executed in the cloud, with relative simulation cost and completion time evaluated as a function of machine count.(More)
Often CAD models already exist for parts of a geometry being simulated using GEANT4. Direct import of these CAD models into GEANT4 however, may not be possible and complex components may be difficult to define via other means. Solutions that allow for users to work around the limited support in the GEANT4 toolkit for loading predefined CAD geometries have(More)
Diabetes among First Nations peoples has reached epidemic proportions, and diabetes prevalence, complications, and mortality rates are higher than in Whites. The purpose of this grounded theory study was to investigate the experience of Type 2 diabetes in First Nations adults. Ten individuals living in one reserve community, in southwestern Ontario,(More)
The objective of this session was to present different arguments for and against unity in LIS to provide different perspectives on the conference themes, in particular, 'theoretical and conceptual approaches to the study of the communication of information', and provide a forum for debate and discussion. Three perspectives were proposed through short(More)
