Venous thromboembolism (VTE) is a leading cause of death among outpatient chemotherapy patients. However the VTE preventive measures for outpatients are not widely advocated. We did a meta-analysis to evaluate the outpatient VTE prevention’s effectiveness and safety. We searched electronic databases until the end of December 2012 and reviewed the abstracts(More)
Semantic Web Service, nowadays, is emerging as a solution for interoperating distributed applications on the WWW. Web service composition is the task of combining existing web services to yield a new service in order to achieve a desired goal. In this paper, we propose a formal approach to translate OWL-S web service descriptions into primitive and complex(More)
High-resolution topography data acquired with LIDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) remote sensing technology have emerged as a fundamental tool for Earth science research. Because these acquisitions are often undertaken with federal and state funds at significant cost, it is important to maximize the impact of these geospatial data by providing online access(More)
Leveraging service-oriented architectures and taking advantage of the high-performance compute resources provided by XSEDE, we have developed standards-based web services to address the challenges associated with processing large volumes of high resolution topography data. These web services make results from community software packages and other(More)
An information agent is viewed as a deductive database consisting of 3 parts: • an observation database containing the facts the agent has observed or sensed from its surrounding environment. • an input database containing the information the agent has obtained from other agents • an intensional database which is a set of rules for computing derived(More)
Distant gastric metastasis to the skin is uncommonly a presenting symptom, although nonspecific paraneoplastic syndromes with dermatologic manifestation including diffuse seborrheic keratoses (Leser-Trelat sign), tripe palms, and acanthosis nigricans have been described in the literature. We report here the case of a 49-year-old woman with gastric(More)
The OpenTopography science gateway provides efficient online access to high resolution topographic data and processing tools for a broad spectrum of research communities. We have integrated XSEDE HPC resources into the OpenTopography processing workflow to meet the growing demand for more complex and resource intensive algorithms from the wider community.
The advising process plays an essential role in the success of a student's academic life, and should include mentoring and counseling offered by faculty advisors. Unfortunately, the limited advising time available is often spent on routine tasks such as course advising and approvals. In addition, faculty advisors spend a large proportion of advising time(More)
