San Francisco served as the host city for the 5th Annual Health 2.0 conference on 25–27 September 2011, which gathered more than 1,500 people interested and actively involved in innovation in health care through information technology. The author attended this conference and in this paper is presenting key insights, concepts, and news from the cutting edge of Health 2.0: from new tools to redesign medical data; to synergistic interactions between web 2.0 tools and public health; to the use of the internet as a positive catalyst for behavioral change to improve health and lifestyle; to direct to consumer genetic testing that drive a new, community-driven approach to research and to electronic health records adoption and data liberation. The main thread linking all of these initiatives is a participatory approach to health that involves all relevant stakeholders: from patients and their families, to physicians and health professionals, to nurses and caregivers, to insurance and other health providers, working together toward the common aim of a better health care.

Based upon research presented at the 2011 Festival of International Conferences on Caregiving, Disability, Aging and Technology (FICCDAT)—and specifically the Growing Older with a Disability (GOWD) conference, this paper identifies areas where bridging building between aging and disability is needed to support older adults aging into or with disabilities. Five focal areas emerged: 1) The Need to Forward Bridging Between Aging and Disability Sectors, 2) Theoretical Frameworks of Individual Aging that Facilitate Bridging, 3) Bridging through Consumer Participation and Involvement, 4) Bridging Through Knowledge Transfer and 5) Bridging Opportunities in Long-Term Supports and Services and Assistive Technologies. Discussion of themes is provided within both international and Canadian contexts, reflecting the interests of FICCDAT and GOWD organizers in discussing how to improve bridging in Canada. Findings from this report form the basis of the Toronto Declaration on Bridging Aging and Disability Policy, Practice, and Research.

peer-reviewed; The rapid growth in the number of conferences and papers appearing in conference proceedings publications has increased the need to examine the issue of conference paper quality. Since conference content is included in permanent repositories, such as IEEE’s Xplore, the existence of low-quality papers in a conference will degrade the value and reputation of the conference and the repository. The aim of this contribution is to consider these issues from the point of view of the Conference Publications Operations Committee of the IEEE Computer Society, and offer ideas that could lead to improved conference publishing quality for all IEEE societies and even non-IEEE entities.

Attached is a paper as well as a presentation - - Note that this presentation came from this conference: 15th ANNUAL SYSTEMS ENGINEERING CONFERENCE, OCTOBER 22 - 25, 2012, SAN DIEGO, CA More information is here: http://www.dtic.mil/ndia/2012system/; This paper explores the potential benefits and disadvantages associated with providing a course (or part of a course) in complex systems as part of a systems engineering graduate degree program. An overview of systems engineering education programs and a history of SE curricular design provides context for this exploration. Curriculums other than systems engineering that include courses in complexity, nonlinear dynamics, emergence, chaos, decentralized synchronization through stigmergy, scale-free networks and related topics are also examined. The application of these concepts to design problems is assessed, particularly for engineers in the defense domain. Complex systems learning objectives tailored for systems engineers are proposed. Finally, a framework on which to base a trade-off analysis to determine if such topics should be included in an existing or developing graduate degree program is recommended.

Simulation Interoperability Standards Organization (SISO) SIW Conference Paper; This paper updates the Modeling and Simulation (M&S) community on the status of the M&S Project "Standardized Documentation for Verification, Validation, and Accreditation (VV&A)" sponsored by the Department of Defense (DoD) M&S Steering Committee. The project's purpose is to support DoD- and Service-level Communities with an automated tool that produces standardized VV&A documentation and with VV&A XML schemas that meet net- centric architecture requirements within the Global Information Grid enterprise. At the 2007 Fall Simulation Interoperability Workshop (SIW), paper 07F-SIW-068 titled, "Automating Standardized Information for the Verification, Validation, and Accreditation Process: An Acquisition Community Sponsored M&S Project," first introduced the project and provided some background information. At the 2008 Spring SIW, paper 08S-SIW-003 titled, "Standardized Documentation for Verification, Validation, and Accreditation," updated the M&S community on the progress made since the last report. This paper will discuss the project's progress in four areas: project management; policy, guidance, and standards; taxonomy and metadata; and architecture and software development.

These papers were delivered at the conference, Constitutional Change in the 1990s organised by the Northern Territory Legislative Assembly's Sessional Committee on Constitutional Development from 4-6 October 1992 in Darwin. The editors have made only minor alterations, not affecting - we believe - the substance of the original papers. We have corrected typographical errors, deleted repetitions and rhetorical excursions appropriate to a conference paper but not to a proceedings, and attempted to obtain as much consistency of style and styling as possible. Most papers were written by the speakers and distributed at the conference. A few have been edited from typescripts. All papers have been shown to contributors before and after the final editing and final versions approved by them. Obviously these papers reflect a wide range of opinions and positions. Content and conclusions are not those of either the Sessional Committee, the North Australia Research Unit or the editors. Naturally, however, we are grateful to the authors for writing these papers, for the Sessional Committee for initiating the conference, the sponsors and supporters of the conference I and the Working Committee who planned the conference and the Conference Secretariat who ran the conference. In particular we would like to thank Graham Nicholson...

peer-reviewed; While it is universally held by computer scientists that conference publications have a higher status in computer science than in other disciplines there is little quantitative evidence in support of this position. The importance of journal publications in academic promotion makes this a big issue since a focus on journal papers only will miss many signi cant papers published at conferences in computer science. In this paper we set out to quantify the relative importance of journal and conference papers in computer science. We show that computer science papers in leading conferences match the impact of papers in mid-ranking journals and surpass the impact of papers in journals in the bottom half of the ISI rankings { when impact is measured by citations in Google Scholar. We also show that there is a poor correlation between this measure of impact and conference acceptance rates. This indicates that conference publication is an ine cient market where venues that are equally challenging in terms of rejection rates o er quite di erent returns in terms of citation.

There is an increased level of activity in the biomedical and health informatics world (e-prescribing, electronic health records, personal health records) that, in the near future, will yield a wealth of available data that we can exploit meaningfully to strengthen knowledge building and evidence creation, and ultimately improve clinical and preventive care. The American Medical Informatics Association (AMIA) 2008 Health Policy Conference was convened to focus and propel discussions about informatics-enabled evidence-based care, clinical research, and knowledge management. Conference participants explored the potential of informatics tools and technologies to improve the evidence base on which providers and patients can draw to diagnose and treat health problems. The paper presents a model of an evidence continuum that is dynamic, collaborative, and powered by health informatics technologies. The conference's findings are described, and recommendations on terminology harmonization, facilitation of the evidence continuum in a “wired” world, development and dissemination of clinical practice guidelines and other knowledge support strategies, and the role of diverse stakeholders in the generation and adoption of evidence are presented.

The present paper examines the first attempts to internationalise the problem of leprosy, a subject hitherto overlooked by historians of imperialism and disease. The last decade of the nineteenth century saw many in the 'civilised countries' of the imperialist West gripped by a paranoia about an invasion of leprosy via germ-laden immigrants and returning expatriates who had acquired the infection in leprosy-endemic colonial possessions. Such alarmists clamoured for the adoption of vigorous leper segregation policies in such colonies. But the contagiousness of leprosy did not go unquestioned by other westerners. The convocation in Berlin of the first international meeting on leprosy revealed the interplay of differing and sometimes incompatible views about the containment of leprosy by segregation. The roles of officials from several countries, as well as the roles of five protagonists (Albert Ashmead, Jules Goldschmidt, Edvard Ehlers, Armauer Hansen, and Phineas Abraham) in the shaping of the Berlin Conference are here examined.

The growing need to manage and exploit the proliferation of online data sources is opening up new opportunities for bringing people closer to the resources they need. For instance, consider a recommendation service through which researchers can receive daily pointers to journal papers in their fields of interest. We survey some of the known approaches to the problem of technical paper recommendation and ask how they can be extended to deal with multiple information sources. More specifically, we focus on a variant of this problem - recommending conference paper submissions to reviewing committee members - which offers us a testbed to try different approaches. Using WHIRL - an information integration system - we are able to implement different recommendation algorithms derived from information retrieval principles. We also use a novel autonomous procedure for gathering reviewer interest information from the Web. We evaluate our approach and compare it to other methods using preference data provided by members of the AAAI-98 conference reviewing committee along with data about the actual submissions.

Conference paper assignment, i.e., the task of assigning paper submissions to reviewers, presents multi-faceted issues for recommender systems research. Besides the traditional goal of predicting `who likes what?', a conference management system must take into account aspects such as: reviewer capacity constraints, adequate numbers of reviews for papers, expertise modeling, conflicts of interest, and an overall distribution of assignments that balances reviewer preferences with conference objectives. Among these, issues of modeling preferences and tastes in reviewing have traditionally been studied separately from the optimization of paper-reviewer assignment. In this paper, we present an integrated study of both these aspects. First, due to the paucity of data per reviewer or per paper (relative to other recommender systems applications) we show how we can integrate multiple sources of information to learn paper-reviewer preference models. Second, our models are evaluated not just in terms of prediction accuracy but in terms of the end-assignment quality. Using a linear programming-based assignment optimization formulation, we show how our approach better explores the space of unsupplied assignments to maximize the overall affinities of papers assigned to reviewers. We demonstrate our results on real reviewer preference data from the IEEE ICDM 2007 conference.; Comment: 8 pages...

O artigo apresenta o relato de experiência da 3ª Conferência Municipal de Saúde de Várzea Paulista, ocorrida em 2008, cuja organização teve como objetivos envolver a sociedade na análise da situação de saúde do município, de forma a priorizar necessidades em saúde e transformar o relatório final em uma carta de compromisso político. Foram realizadas Plenárias Locais, Pré-Conferências Regionais e a Conferência Municipal, com fluxo ascendente de propostas e delegados, nas quais o tema "Garantindo o Direito à Saúde" foi debatido através de cinco eixos temáticos correspondentes aos blocos do Pacto pela Saúde. Inovou-se com a atividade de priorização, através da limitação do número de propostas de cada região a serem encaminhadas para a Conferência Municipal. O Relatório Final foi encaminhado aos candidatos a prefeito, solicitando-se o compromisso com as deliberações. A realização da Conferência de forma ascendente, com etapas locais e regionais, garantiu a participação da comunidade, a representatividade dos delegados eleitos e das propostas aprovadas. A "priorização coletiva" qualificou o debate garantindo a pactuação com a sociedade de um projeto viável. O debate acerca da governabilidade ampliou-se para a intersetorialidade...
