The Cramer Fire of 2003 resulted in the tragic deaths of two firefighters, and there has been no shortage of debate and controversies since. However, the Cramer Fire also offers some powerful lessons, particularly in the breakdown of rational thinking and decisionmaking in a rapidly-changing fire environment. The final 20 minutes at H-2 can provide important insights and lessons in this realm. Additional keywords: Cramer Fire, acceleration, decision gates, sensemaking. Introduction Humans tend…

Cultural factors in users' evaluations of user interfaces and interactions : exploration and representation of usage in Jordanian contexts
Culture shapes most human behaviour, including interaction with computers. In much Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) research, culture is assumed to impact design preferences. However, many cultural
Marine Vibrators: Synthetic Data Study
The traditional airgun source has for a long time been the preferred type of source in marine seismic data acquisition due to its high impulsive pressure output. However, this impulsive energy has
The potential of physical motion cues: changing people's perception of robots' performance
The results suggest that physical presence does yield higher performance ratings and there is an opportunity in designing interaction techniques that improve how users perceive the performance of autonomous robotic systems.

Driving the Scoreboard: Motivating Eco-Driving Through In-Car Gaming
A research plan is suggested to construct a preliminary theoretical foundation to map the connection between information communicated to the driver and eco-driving on two dimensions: the type of reward awarded to theDriver and the social and community aspects of eco- driving.
The Influence of Metal Diffusion and Interfacial Reactions on the Crystallization Behaviour of Glasses Employed in the Manufacture of Glass-Ceramic-to-Metal Seals
One of the major attributes of glass-ceramics is an ability to tailor their thermal expansion characteristics and this makes them ideal candidates for sealing to a wide variety of metals and alloys;
