CIDICAA: Coordination and Integration of DIstributed Collaborative Applications and Activities.
Application to CORBA and JAVA
This project aims at providing a methodology and a JAVA/CORBA-based support for design, integration of components and implementation of coordination protocols in object oriented distributed applications for collaborative activities support. Here is a slides presentation in french The main objectives are the following:
reliability of applications:
the use of formal foundations of the description formalism allows safety and reliability in critical situations to be improved significantly.
easiness of design and implementation:
the use of a rule-oriented formalism allows simple description to be used to generate complex coordination protocols.
separation of communication,coordination, and collaboration layers allows applications to be adapted to new requirements of the collaborative activity they are supporting.

    Collaboration for Traffic Safety
    From Winter 1994
    Volume I, Number 1 In one sense, the field of injury prevention began with traffic safety. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration was established (as the National Highway Safety Bureau) in 1966 under the direction of Dr. William Haddon, Jr., one of the first to apply rigorous scientific methodology to injury prevention. But public health practitioners were also involved in traffic safety from the start. Dr. Haddon, for example, did much of his initial ground-breaking research while with the New York State Department of Public Health.
    As medical and social progress lowered both the prevalence and effects of disease, the impact of injuries became more visible. Injury prevention as a public health discipline achieved more widespread visibility with the publication of the National Academy of Sciences report Injury in America in 1985. While new specialties, such as violence prevention, have arisen, so has the recognition that injury prevention efforts are most effective when they draw upon a wide range of intervention strategies, academic disciplines, public agencies, and private organizations.
    Both traffic safety and public health professionals want to reduce the number and severity of injuries that result from motor vehicle collisions, including those that involve pedestrians and bicyclists. Working together toward this common goal can help professionals in both types of agencies do their jobs more effectively, reach more people with their programs, and have a greater impact in promoting traffic safety and reducing motor vehicle-related injuries.

    Answers of student questions from Bill Jackson
    1. Since you have worked with the Apollo program, have you ever wanted to land on the moon yourself? Chris Helmick
    That would really be cool. Unfortunately for me, really bad eyesight has always prevented me from flying in space. The next best thing was to be part of the team that supported the flight crews. I was finishing my senior year of college when man first walked on the moon. I will always remember staying awake that entire night (and sleeping through classes the next day), watching the grainy black and white pictures that were transmitted live as events occurred. Having known and worked with Armstrong and Aldren added to the vicarious pleasure of "being on the moon". 2. What would you do if some of the software malfunctioned and shut the shuttle down while it was in space? Marty Owens
    While the Shuttle is in orbit, there is time for the ground and flight crews to determine the cause of a problem, fix it and continue with the mission. During the ascent and entry portions of the mission (when things are really happening fast), the crew can transfer control of the Shuttle from the primary software to a second software package that can safely fly the mission.

    Increased media visibility Youth Programs
    Child Passenger Safety
    Motor vehicle crashes continue to kill and seriously injure children nationwide. The proper use of seat belts and child safety seats can drastically reduce crash-related deaths and injuries. In fact, data indicate that the correct use of child safety seats reduce the risk of infant death by as much as 71 percent and the death of toddlers by more than 50 percent. NHTSA estimates that 365 lives were saved by the use of child restraints during 1996. If child safety seat compliance had been 100 percent in that year, an additional 195 lives would have been saved. Teenagers die in motor vehicle crashes at twice the rate of the rest of the population. This data does not even include teenagers' high incidence of serious injuries resulting in lifelong disabilities. Teenage drivers in the New York Capital District, which includes Albany, Schenectady, Rensselaer and Saratoga, typify the statistics of the national population. A 1995 study of 2,588 high school students, primarily in the Capital District, indicated a very high rate of alcohol consumption associated with teenage driving.

    Revisiting the AUP: A Digital Double Take
    In the beginning, when the Internet was new, many schools attempted to tame that vast, lawless and largely mysterious land by establishing strict standards and rules known as acceptable use policies (AUPs). Now, according to instructional technology consultant David Warlick, many of those original policies are out of date. New technologies, Warlick says, allow schools to protect students without limiting the teacher's ability to provide valuable collaborative learning experiences. Isn't it time you rethought your AUP?

    The goal is to help local policymakers, planners, and analysts monitor the status of their local safety nets and the populations they serve. Strategies include providing baseline data and a set of tools that enable monitoring of the capacity and performance of local safety nets. This fact sheet describes the activities of this Safety Net Monitoring Collaborative. Select for PDF file of print version (400 KB). PDF Help
    In 2000, the Institute of Medicine (IOM) released a report describing the health care safety net—the Nation's "system" of providing health care to low-income and other vulnerable populations—as "intact but endangered." In particular, the report emphasizes:
    • The precarious financial situation of many institutions that provide care to Medicaid, uninsured, and other vulnerable patients. The changing financial, economic, and social environment in which these institutions operate. The highly localized, "patchwork" structure of the safety net.
    One of the five key recommendations in the report is the need for data systems and measures: "The committee recommends that concerted efforts be directed to improving this Nation's capacity and ability to monitor the changing structure, capacity, and financial stability of the safety net to meet the health care needs of the uninsured and other vulnerable populations."

    Presenters: Jonathan Durbin, M.A., C.P.M., Patient Safety Project Administrator, Iowa Department of Public Health, Des Moines, IA Robert W. Barnett, Director, Patient Safety Center, New York State Department of Health, Delmar, NY James B. Conway, M.Sc., Chief Operations Officer, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, Boston, MA Iowa has developed a collaboration between the Iowa Department of Public Health and the University of Iowa College of Public Health with input from providers and stakeholders to improve patient safety. The partnership was enabled by Iowa's small rural character, a climate of cooperation and hard work, a willingness to talk to one another, absence of marketplace dynamics that foster competition, a legislature willing to wait for results of collaborative efforts and research projects, and good relations with licensing boards. Key stakeholders have been involved in meetings and conferences to promote patient safety with national support from AHRQ, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and Senator Tom Harkin. The Director of Public Health has created a Council of Scientific and Health Advisors that is evaluating relevant literature and data dealing with public health issues and has identified the need for additional scientific data regarding patient safety and health outcomes in Iowa. The Advisory Council is comprised of professional organizations, providers, consumers, regulators, purchasers, policymakers, administrators, and educators. This group provides input into the development of research projects, serves as a communication link with their constituents, and provides guidance on ongoing efforts to improve patient safety and health outcomes.

    International Cooperation
    BRI has a long history of international cooperative activities. For example, at the International Institute of Seismology and Earthquake Engineering, 1018 participants from 75 developing countries have been accepted for training in seismology and earthquake engineering in the more than thirty years since 1962. Investigation and technical cooperation on earthquake damage occurring in overseas countries have also been carried out more than twenty times, from the Iranian Earthquake in 1962 to the 1996 Irian Jaya (Indonesia) offshore Earthquake.
    The level of international cooperation activity achieved by BRI has been greatly expanded in recent years and its importance has increased, due to the upgrading of Japan's importance in the world and improvements in the level of science and technology.
    In add class="txt1"ition to above continuous cooperative activities, BRI has been involved with activities such as international collaborative research projects, as represented by the US-Japan Research on Large-Scale Seismic Resistance Tests, and technical assistance to developing countries through the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA).
    Besides responding to the demands of international economic harmonization, study on matters of mutual accreditation and international standards is also carried out with a long term view by the Codes and Evaluation Research Center at BRI.

    Faculty Engagement with Internationalization:
    Strategies from members of the ACE Internationalization Collaborative
    During plenary and small group sessions at the Annual Collaborative Meeting (January 2002), participants discussed the following:
    • What strategies has your institution used effectively to widen the circle of faculty involvement in internationalization?
    • In what creative ways has your institution supported faculty efforts to internationalize?
    The following strategies emerged from discussions:
  • Engage faculty in development and leadership of education abroad programs.
  • Facilitate faculty exchange agreements.
  • Financially support faculty travel abroad.
  • Offer incentives for curriculum development. ...
  • Transform hiring, tenure, and promotion criteria. From these discussions, further questions also emerged: Is transformation of the curriculum and campus culture a goal of engaging faculty in internationalization projects? Is it assumed that faculty who are engaged in education abroad or faculty exchange, for example, will transform their curriculum when they return? Is it necessary to put more strategies in place that ensure faculty have the time, resources, motivation, and other support to engage in internationalizing the curriculum, as a result of an experience abroad or other development opportunity? Finally, do hiring, tenure, and promotion criteria need to be rewritten to promote further faculty engagement?
