Sustainable Green Alleys: Collaborative Governance

submitted by: julieyun
The Southcrest Beta Green Street Alley pilot project represents a longstanding priority of the City of San Diego to pave the dirt alleyway with permeable material to promote sustainability and to improve accessibility for the adjacent residents. Cities across the United States have been adopting their own green alley programs to better manage storm water and urban runoff while this trend has only caught on recently for San Diego. As greening alleys is a fairly new concept to San Diegans,...

The Rapidly Growing Standards Landscape in ‘omics by Susanna Sansone, European Bioinformatics Institute

submitted by: dougramsey
As the size and complexity of scientific datasets and the corresponding information stores grow, reporting standards are playing an increasingly active role. Interopera bility among standards, however, becomes pivotal for the development of software applications. Here we present the key synergistic standards activities in the omics domain and the motivation for, an overview of, the BioInvestigation Index infrastructure at the EBI. The marriage of conventional methods with (meta)genomics,...

Collaborative Work During Interventional Radiological Procedures Based on a Multicast Satellite-Terrestrial Network

submitted by: Lefteris Gortzis
Collaboration is a key requirement in several contemporary interventional radiology procedures (IRPs). This work proposes a multicast hybrid satellite system capable of supporting advanced IRP collaboration, and evaluates its feasibility and applicability. Following a detailed IRP requirements study, we have developed a system which supports IRP collaboration through the employment of a hybrid satellite-terrestrial network, a prototype multicast version of wavelet based interactive...
