INTAMAP is a Web Processing Service for the automatic spatial interpolation of measured point data. Requirements were (i) using open standards for spatial data such as developed in the context of the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC), (ii) using a suitable environment for statistical modelling and computation, and (iii) producing an integrated, open source(More)
Malaria is a major public health issue in Burundi in terms of both morbidity and mortality, with around 2.5 million clinical cases and more than 15,000 deaths each year. It is still the single main cause of mortality in pregnant women and children below five years of age. Because of the severe health and economic burden of malaria, there is still a growing(More)
The pathophysiology of periodic leg movements (PLMs) in sleep remains to be elucidated. Among other hypotheses an alteration of dopaminergic function has been suggested. Nocturnal urinary dopamine and 4-hydroxy-3-methoxyphenylacetic acid excretion in otherwise healthy subjects with PLMs was significantly reduced (P < 0.001 and P < 0.05, respectively)(More)
In semiconductor manufacturing, metrology operations are so expensive and time-consuming that only a certain number of wafers are measured. For that reason, one is interested in developing Virtual Metrology (VM) methodologies predicting wafer fine metrology results in real-time and free of costs. However, currently used sampling designs do not take account(More)
BACKGROUND The benzamide tiapride, a selective dopamine D2/D3-receptor antagonist, can be used effectively in children to treat tic disorders and stuttering. Tiapride is a clinically safe substance (even during long-term treatment and when given to young children). Unfortunately, its probable effects on general brain development and the maturation of the(More)

In semiconductor manufacturing, metrology operations are expensive and time-consuming, for this reason only a certain sample of wafers is measured. With the need of highly reliable processes, the semiconductor industry is interested in developing methodologies covering the gap of missing metrology information. Virtual Metrology (VM) turns out to be a(More)
Within the daily workload at a ward there is a considerable amount of information processing. It is the task of a systematic management of hospital information systems to provide health professionals with the right information in the right place at the right time. This paper deals with the consequences for the management of hospital information systems if(More)
