Using A Social-Ethical Framework To Evaluate Location-Based Services In An Internet Of Things World, Roba Abbas, Katina Michael, Mg Michael May 2015

Using A Social-Ethical Framework To Evaluate Location-Based Services In An Internet Of Things World, Roba Abbas, Katina Michael, Mg Michael

Associate Professor Katina Michael

The idea for an Internet of Things has matured since its inception as a concept in 1999. People today speak openly of a Web of Things and People, and even more broadly of an Internet of Everything. As our relationships become more and more complex and enmeshed, through the use of advanced technologies, we have pondered on ways to simplify flows of communications, to collect meaningful data, and use them to make timely decisions with respect to optimisation and efficiency. At their core, these flows of communications are pathways to registers of interaction, and tell the intricate story of outputs ...

The University of Wollongong Archives contains collections which have relevance to the subject of feminism in Austrlalia. Two examples are given - the records of New Opportunities for Women (NOW) 1965-70 set up by Carmelita Steinke, and the archive of artist and filmmaker Mary Callaghan.


Putting Transition At The Centre Of Whole-Of-Curriculum Transformation, Marcus O'Donnell, Margaret Wallace, Anne Melano, Romy Lawson, Eeva Leinonen Jan 2015

Putting Transition At The Centre Of Whole-Of-Curriculum Transformation, Marcus O'Donnell, Margaret Wallace, Anne Melano, Romy Lawson, Eeva Leinonen

Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Academic) - Papers

This paper describes the development of a model for institution-wide curriculum transformation at the University of Wollongong (UOW). Transition - a curriculum-integrated approach that enables a smooth, supported shift into and through higher education and a successful transition from the university to the world of work and lifelong learning - is one of three key principles at the heart of the UOW Curriculum Model. This paper focuses on transition as a whole-of-curriculum design principle and the way this principle informs the other elements of the UOW Curriculum Model. It aims to extend the concept of "transition pedagogy" developed by Kift and colleagues ...


Embedding Moocs In Academic Programs As A Part Of Curriculum Transformation: A Pilot Case Study, Sarah R. Lambert, Irit Alony Jan 2015

Embedding Moocs In Academic Programs As A Part Of Curriculum Transformation: A Pilot Case Study, Sarah R. Lambert, Irit Alony

Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Academic) - Papers

The University of Wollongong’s first locally developed and hosted Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) “The Reluctant Mathematician” was a highly scaffolded MOOC designed to support stressed and low-efficacy maths learners. It was developed to lift maths skills at our university and also in the community – where maths skills continue to be a challenge and in some cases a source of stress. Internally the MOOC provided an alternative online way to support students who struggle with mathematics at university level, and as a complement to the existing face to face services. This paper describes a successful approach to using MOOCs ...


Boundary C^{2,\Alpha} Estimates For Monge-Ampere Type Equations, Yong Huang, Feida Jiang, Jiakun Liu Jan 2015

Boundary C^{2,\Alpha} Estimates For Monge-Ampere Type Equations, Yong Huang, Feida Jiang, Jiakun Liu

Faculty of Engineering and Information Sciences - Papers: Part A

In this paper, we obtain global second derivative estimates for solutions of the Dirichlet problem of certain Monge-Ampère type equations under some structural conditions, while the inhomogeneous term is only assumed to be Hölder continuous and bounded away from zero and infinity. These estimates correspond to those for the standard Monge-Ampère equation obtained by Trudinger and Wang (2008) and by Savin (2013), and have natural applications in optimal transportation and prescribed Jacobian equations.


Comparative Analysis Of The Secondary Electron Yield From Carbon Nanoparticles And Pure Water Medium, Alexey Verkhovtsev, Sally Mckinnon, Pablo De Vera, Eugene Surdutovich, Susanna Guatelli, Andrei V. Korol, Anatoly Rosenfeld, Andrey V. Solov'yov Jan 2015

Comparative Analysis Of The Secondary Electron Yield From Carbon Nanoparticles And Pure Water Medium, Alexey Verkhovtsev, Sally Mckinnon, Pablo De Vera, Eugene Surdutovich, Susanna Guatelli, Andrei V. Korol, Anatoly Rosenfeld, Andrey V. Solov'yov

Faculty of Engineering and Information Sciences - Papers: Part A

The production of secondary electrons generated by carbon nanoparticles and pure water medium irradiated by fast protons is studied by means of model approaches and Monte Carlo simulations. It is demonstrated that due to a prominent collective response to an external field, the nanoparticles embedded in the medium enhance the yield of low-energy electrons. The maximal enhancement is observed for electrons in the energy range where plasmons, which are excited in the nanoparticles, play the dominant role. Electron yield from a solid carbon nanoparticle composed of fullerite, a crystalline form of C-60 fullerene, is demonstrated to be several times higher ...


The Bulk-Edge Correspondence For The Quantum Hall Effect In Kasparov Theory, Christopher J. Bourne, Alan L. Carey, Adam C. Rennie Jan 2015

The Bulk-Edge Correspondence For The Quantum Hall Effect In Kasparov Theory, Christopher J. Bourne, Alan L. Carey, Adam C. Rennie

Faculty of Engineering and Information Sciences - Papers: Part A

We prove the bulk-edge correspondence in K-theory for the quantum Hall effect by constructing an unbounded Kasparov module from a short exact sequence that links the bulk and boundary algebras. This approach allows us to represent bulk topological invariants explicitly as a Kasparov product of boundary invariants with the extension class linking the algebras. This paper focuses on the example of the discrete integer quantum Hall effect, though our general method potentially has much wider applications.


3d Printed Terahertz Diffraction Gratings And Lenses, A D. Squires, E Constable, R A. Lewis Jan 2015

3d Printed Terahertz Diffraction Gratings And Lenses, A D. Squires, E Constable, R A. Lewis

Faculty of Engineering and Information Sciences - Papers: Part A

3D printing opens up an inexpensive, rapid, and versatile path to the fabrication of optical elements suited to the terahertz regime. The transmission of the plastics used in 3D printers, while generally decreasing with frequency, is usable over the range 0.1-2 THz. We have designed, fabricated, and tested regular and blazed gratings and aspherical lenses for operation at terahertz frequencies. We find that the measured performance matches our theoretical predictions.


Characterization Of Smear Zone Caused By Mandrel Action, Buddhima Indraratna, Cholachat Rujikiatkamjorn, Made Ardana Jan 2015

Characterization Of Smear Zone Caused By Mandrel Action, Buddhima Indraratna, Cholachat Rujikiatkamjorn, Made Ardana

Faculty of Engineering and Information Sciences - Papers: Part A

In this study, the smear zone due to vertical drain installation is studied using a large, in situ sample to capture the realistic characteristics of the smear zone in relation to the in situ soil structure. The smear zone extent for Bulli clay (New South Wales, Australia) is quantified on the basis of normalised permeability and the reduction in the water content prior to consolidation. The permeability and compressibility of the soil are used to determine the extent to which the soil surrounding the PVD had become disturbed. In laboratory testing, the soil consolidation behavior due to a prefabricated vertical ...


Effects Of Salinity Build-Up On Biomass Characteristics And Trace Organic Chemical Removal: Implications On The Development Of High Retention Membrane Bioreactors, Wenhai Luo, Faisal I. Hai, Jinguo Kang, William E. Price, Wenshan Guo, Hao H. Ngo, Kazuo Yamamoto, Long D. Nghiem Jan 2015

Effects Of Salinity Build-Up On Biomass Characteristics And Trace Organic Chemical Removal: Implications On The Development Of High Retention Membrane Bioreactors, Wenhai Luo, Faisal I. Hai, Jinguo Kang, William E. Price, Wenshan Guo, Hao H. Ngo, Kazuo Yamamoto, Long D. Nghiem

Faculty of Engineering and Information Sciences - Papers: Part A

This study investigated the impact of salinity build-up on the performance of membrane bioreactor (MBR), specifically in terms of the removal and fate of trace organic chemicals (TrOCs), nutrient removal, and biomass characteristics. Stepwise increase of the influent salinity, simulating salinity build-up in high retention MBRs, adversely affected the metabolic activity in the bioreactor, thereby reducing organic and nutrient removal. The removal of hydrophilic TrOCs by MBR decreased due to salinity build-up. By contrast, with the exception of 17α-ethynylestradiol, the removal of all hydrophobic TrOCs was not affected at high salinity. Moreover, salinity build-up had negligible impact on the residual ...


Facilitating An Ant Colony Algorithm For Multi-Objective Data-Intensive Service Provisions, Lijuan Wang, Jun Shen, Junzhou Luo Jan 2015

Facilitating An Ant Colony Algorithm For Multi-Objective Data-Intensive Service Provisions, Lijuan Wang, Jun Shen, Junzhou Luo

Faculty of Engineering and Information Sciences - Papers: Part A

The explosion of enormous sources of digital data has led to greater dependence on data-intensive services. Applications based on data-intensive services have become one of the most challenging applications in cloud computing. The service provision, and in particular service composition, will face new challenges as the services and data grow. In this paper, we will evaluate an ant colony system to resolve the multi-objective data-intensive service composition problem. The algorithm for a multi-objective context will get a set of Pareto-optimal solutions considering two objectives at the same time: the total cost and the total execution time of a composite service.

Faculty of Engineering and Information Sciences - Papers: Part A

The oxidation kinetics of ferritic stainless steel 430 was studied in dry and humid air at 1090 °C by Thermo Gravimetric Analysis (TGA). Different atmospheres and heating times were adopted for reheating to obtain different compositions and thickness of the oxide scale. Hot rolling was performed on a 2-high Hille 100 experimental rolling mill at various reductions. Oxide scale thickness and composition were analysed with optical microscopy (OM), scanning electron microscope (SEM) and X-ray diffraction (XRD). The surface profiles were examined by a digital microscope, and the topographic features of the thin oxide scale surface were examined with an atomic ...


Crystal Plasticity Finite Element Method Modelling Of Indentation Size Effect, Mao Liu, Cheng Lu, A Kiet Tieu Jan 2015

Crystal Plasticity Finite Element Method Modelling Of Indentation Size Effect, Mao Liu, Cheng Lu, A Kiet Tieu

Faculty of Engineering and Information Sciences - Papers: Part A

A crystal plasticity finite element method (CPFEM) model has been developed to investigate the indentation size effect (ISE) of aluminium single crystal during nano-indentation. The simulated results have been validated by comparison with experimental observations. The load-hardness curves from simulation are consistent with the experimental results. The mathematic relationship between load and indentation depth has been built to investigate indentation size effect. In addition, the Mises stress, critical resolved shear stress, stress and shear strain rates for a selected element and the lattice curvature have been studied to explain indentation size effect.


Convexity Estimates For Surfaces Moving By Curvature Functions, Ben Andrews, Mat Langford, James A. Mccoy Jan 2015

Convexity Estimates For Surfaces Moving By Curvature Functions, Ben Andrews, Mat Langford, James A. Mccoy

Faculty of Engineering and Information Sciences - Papers: Part A

We consider the evolution of compact surfaces by fully nonlinear, parabolic curvature ows for which the normal speed is given by a smooth, degree one homogeneous function of the principal curvatures of the evolving surface. Under no further restrictions on the speed function, we prove that initial surfaces on which the speed is positive become weakly convex at a singularity of the flow. This generalises the corresponding result [26] of Huisken and Sinestrari for the mean curvature ow to the largest possible class of degree one homogeneous surface flows.

This paper proposes that there is a need to customize measurement of creativity training instead of using generic models. The UAE public sector, focussing on the Dubai Government, forms the context for this paper as it has recently started investing heavily in creativity training programs as part ...


A New Bio-Cryptosystem-Oriented Security Analysis Framework And Implementation Of Multibiometric Cryptosystems Based On Decision Level Fusion, Cai Li, Jiankun Hu, Josef Pieprzyk, Willy Susilo Jan 2015

A New Bio-Cryptosystem-Oriented Security Analysis Framework And Implementation Of Multibiometric Cryptosystems Based On Decision Level Fusion, Cai Li, Jiankun Hu, Josef Pieprzyk, Willy Susilo

Faculty of Engineering and Information Sciences - Papers: Part A

Biometric cryptosystems provide an innovative solution for cryptographic key generation, encryption as well as biometric template protection. Besides high authentication accuracy, a good biometric cryptosystem is expected to protect biometric templates effectively, which requires that helper data does not reveal significant information about the templates. Previous works predominantly follow an appropriate entropy definition to measure the security of biometric cryptosystems. In this paper, we point out limitations of entropy-based security analysis and propose a new security analysis framework that combines information-theoretic approach with computational security. In addition, we construct a fingerprint-based multibiometric cryptosystem using decision level fusion. Hash functions are ...

Faculty of Engineering and Information Sciences - Papers: Part A

This paper presents an investigation of the fracture behavior of X70 pipeline steel using the acoustic emission (AE) monitoring technique. The AE monitoring technique is widely used in mechanical and materials research for detection of plastic deformation, fracture initiation and crack growth. However, quantitative dependences of the AE parameters (such as signal amplitude and frequency) on the fracture parameters of X70 pipeline steel (such as ductile and brittle fracture initiation and propagation) have not been studied in depth and are therefore not completely understood. In this paper, we report an investigation of the effect of loading conditions on the fracture ...

On Transformation Of Query Scheduling Strategies In Distributed And Heterogeneous Database Systems, Janusz R. Getta, - Handoko

Faculty of Engineering and Information Sciences - Papers: Part A

This work considers a problem of optimal query processing in heterogeneous and distributed database systems. A global query sub- mitted at a local site is decomposed into a number of queries processed at the remote sites. The partial results returned by the queries are in- tegrated at a local site. The paper addresses a problem of an optimal scheduling of queries that minimizes time spend on data integration of the partial results into the final answer. A global data model defined in this work provides a unified view of the heterogeneous data structures located at the remote sites and a ...

Estimation Of Spruce Needle-Leaf Chlorophyll Content Based On Dart And Paras Canopy Reflectance Models, Lucia Yanez-Rausell, Zbynek Malenovky, Miina Rautiainen, Jan G. P. W Clevers, Petr Lukes, Jan Hanus, Michael E. Schaepman

Faculty of Science, Medicine and Health - Papers: part A

Needle-leaf chlorophyll content (Cab) of a Norway spruce stand was estimated from CHRIS-PROBA images using the canopy reflectance simulated by the PROSPECT model coupled with two canopy reflectance models: 1) discrete anisotropic radia- tive transfer model (DART); and 2) PARAS. The DART model uses a detailed description of the forest scene, whereas PARAS is based on the photon recollision probability theory and uses a simplified forest structural description. Subsequently, statisti- cally significant empirical functions between the optical indices ANCB 670 − 720 and ANMB 670 − 720 and the needle-leaf Cab content were established and then applied to CHRIS-PROBA data. The Cab ...

Her2 And Upar Cooperativity Contribute To Metastatic Phenotype Of Her2-Positive Breast Cancer, Vineesh Indira Chandran, Serenella Eppenberger-Castori, Thejaswini Venkatesh, Kara L. Vine, Marie Ranson

Faculty of Science, Medicine and Health - Papers: part A

Human epidermal growth factor receptor type 2 (HER2)-positive breast carcinoma is highly aggressive and mostly metastatic in nature though curable/manageable in part by molecular targeted therapy. Recent evidence suggests a subtype of cells within HER2-positive breast tumors that concomitantly expresses the urokinase plasminogen activator receptor (uPAR) with inherent stem cell/mesenchymal-like properties promoting tumor cell motility and a metastatic phenotype. This HER-positive/uPAR-positive subtype may be partially responsible for the failure of HER2-targeted treatment strategies. Herein we discuss and substantiate the cumulative preclinical and clinical evidence on HER2-uPAR cooperativity in terms of gene co-amplification and/or mRNA/protein ...
