  author={Stephen Williams and Masoud Agah and Luiz A. Dasilva and Kamyar Dezhgosha and Allen B. Mackenzie and Nicky Mostert-Phipps and Sanjay Raman and Javier Resano},
This mini workshop is organized to provide an interactive forum for the introduction of a set of five new curriculum modules developed under IEEE's Real World Engineering Projects (RWEP) program. The modules, which are representative of a larger collection of curriculum modules available to the public via an open-access RWEP web portal, are designed for use in the first-year engineering and computer science classroom, and are hands-on, team-based projects that emphasize the societal impact of… 

Freshman Engineering Project on Energy Scavenging

This paper describes the design, development and implementation of an energy scavenging project for an introduction to engineering course. The overall objective of the project is to provide students

Mmite is a tool that empowers non-programmers to create functionality similar to those found in mashups, which customize or combine the functionality of multiple websites by extracting information from web pages or accessing web services APIs.

Building Mashups by example

Most problem areas in Mashup building are combined into a unified interactive framework that requires no widgets, and this approach allows users with no programming background to easily create Mashups by example.

Mobile games to foster the learning of history at archaeological sites

A system designed to support young students learning history at an archaeological site, by exploiting mobile technology, helps players to acquire historical notions and making archaeological visits more effective and exciting.

White Paper: Personal Health Records: Definitions, Benefits, and Strategies for Overcoming Barriers to Adoption

This paper summarizes the College Symposium discussions on PHR systems and provides definitions, system characteristics, technical architectures, benefits, barriers to adoption, and strategies for increasing adoption.

Performance Evaluation of FPGA-Based Biological Applications

On the forefront of recent HPC innovations are Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGA), which promise to accelerate calculations by one or more orders of magnitude. The performance of two Cray XD1

Electronic medical record use by office-based physicians and their practices: United States, 2006.

Estimates of medical practices and physicians within the practices using electronic medical records (EMR) are presented for 2006 by selected physician and practice characteristics by adjusting the weighting scheme using a multiplicity estimator.

Viewpoint Paper: Early Experiences with Personal Health Records

This work describes the implementation challenges from 1999 to 2007 and postulate the evolving challenges the industry will face over the next five years.

Issues in Wireless Structural Damage Monitoring Technologies

A second-generation wireless sensing unit for real-time structural response measurements has been designed and fabricated and represents a high-performance yet low-cost solution to monitoring the short-term and long-term performance of structures.

Fine-grained network time synchronization using reference broadcasts

Measurements from two wireless implementations are used to show that removing the sender's nondeterminism from the critical path in this way produces high-precision clock agreement, and a significant improvement over the Network Time Protocol (NTP) under similar conditions.
