Many diagnostic imaging experiments are characterized by the presence of several observations for each patient studied. Evaluation of metastases with different imaging modalities in patients with cancer or examination of multiple artery segments in patients with heart abnormalities are some examples of such studies. Data obtained from multiple observations… (More)
The discovery of the potentially hazardous near-Earth asteroid (NEA) component of the minor-planet population has been enhanced by better detecting and computing technology. A government mandate to quantify the terrestrial impact hazard and to detect 90% of all NEAs larger than 1 km can be realistically addressed. The characteristics, capabilities, and… (More)
This paper contains the results of a survey of the 36 ABET accredited undergraduate programs in Information Systems (IS) from 2012 in the USA. With the goal of discovering the makeup of a typical ABET accredited IS program, each educational institution's website was searched for applicable information about its undergraduate program for information systems.… (More)
Knowledge Management (KM) systems can be difficult to install. It can be even more difficult to ensure its use by employees. We present two case studies – one that failed and one that succeeded. The first case study examines the efforts to implement and use a KM system at a tax firm, and the challenges encountered that defied resolution, leading to the KM… (More)
Development is a complex process that, under normal circumstances, proceeds in a stable and patterned fashion. Developmental morphogenesis (called embryogenesis) can tell us a great deal about the function and structure of an adult organism. One of the most important aspects of development to understand is the progression of cell division and… (More)
These keynote and invited talks discuss the following: OpenWorm: Open source biological computing focused on a model organism; Searching Genomes in GPUs; Graph algorithms for computational metagenomics.
