This paper explores the growing concerns with computer science research, and in particular, computer security research and its relationship with the committees that review human subjects research. It offers cases that review boards are likely to confront, and provides a context for appropriate consideration of such research, as issues of bots, clouds, and(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the effect of exposure to chorioamnionitis on developmental outcome in very low birth weight (VLBW) infants. METHODS Five hundred four maternal charts (97% of all VLBW infants delivered from 1990 to 1994) were reviewed. A historical cohort study of the 330 infants delivered secondary to preterm premature rupture of membranes or(More)
Microelectrodes of the Au-Hg amalgam type have been used together with square wave voltammetry to measure profiles of oxygen, peroxide, Fe, Mn and sulfur chemical species through the thickness of natural assemblage marine biofilms grown on stainless steel alloy Nitronic 50 (UNS S20910). The data show Mn+2 and peroxide together at locations where the(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine neonatal outcome at 7 months of corrected age in very low birth weight (VLBW) infants with placental chorioamnionitis. METHODS We conducted a cohort study of 287 VLBW infants delivered as a result of preterm premature rupture of membranes (PROM) or preterm labor. Control subjects (n = 123) had placentas with absent umbilical cord(More)
Free and open source software (FOSS) is taking an increasingly significant role in our software infrastructure. Yet many questions still exist about whether a software economy based on FOSS would be viable. We argue that contemporary trends definitively demonstrate this viability. Claiming that an economy must be evaluated as much by the ends it brings(More)
In this panel, we explore some of the issues surrounding the ethical review of computer security research by institutional review boards (IRBs) and other ethical review bodies. These issues include interpretation of legal language defining how ethical review is to be performed, the impact of information and communication technologies (ICT) on research(More)
We report on some initial findings of an investigation into current practices in, and the need for, information/computer ethics curricula at the graduate level. We give some results and analysis from a survey of faculty and graduate students at four diverse U.S. institutions. Faculty and students agree that students will face professional ethical challenges(More)
