The uptake of mobile phones in the UK has increased exponentially in the past two years, indicating that a wider range of users are now utilising mobile technologies in different contexts than ever before. Still little is known about how mobile technologies are used amongst different populations in specific contexts and this research addresses the context(More)
The lack of standard assessment criteria for reliably comparing usability evaluation methods (UEMs) is an important gap in HCI knowledge. Recently, metrics for assessing thoroughness, validity, and effectiveness of UEMs, based on user data, have been proposed to bridge this gap. This paper reports our findings of applying these proposed metrics in a study(More)
We investigated what mobile workers do when they are mobile to achieve their communication goals, using contextual interviews and ethnographically inspired observations in a variety of settings. Implications for the design of mobile technology were extracted from the raw data collected in the fieldwork using such novel design techniques as 'Day in the Life'(More)
This paper investigates the feasibility of developing bootstrapping models of criminal sentencing decisions to predict sentence length and the outcome of sentencing appeals. New Zealand Court of Appeal sexual offence sentencing decisions are modelled as a function of variables describing the character of the offender and the circumstances of the offence.(More)
The last twenty years have borne witness to a fast changing technological landscape that has seen computers move from mainframe machines to pocket sized devices. Most recently, two of the significant elements of this changing environment have been the rapid proliferation of mobile technologies, on the one hand, and the decreasing cost of mobile(More)

EXTENDED ABSTRACT Tropical seagrass habitats of the Great Barrier Reef are influenced by a complex suite of parameters. Recently there has been particular interest in the impact of land-derived runoff to the long-term viability of tropical seagrass habitats. Seagrass ecosystems are highly variable and poorly understood. A decision support tool that copes(More)
This report investigates time management in COTS based distributed simulation using HLA. Discussions are limited to discrete event simulation and conservative algorithms. The COTS Simulation Package Emulator (CSPE) is used as an experimental tool. Its architecture is modified to use HLA as middleware. A time management algorithm is designed and implemented(More)
