Adolescent online social relationships
Social relationships on the internet have a lot in common with adolescent social relationships, researchers from Spain report, adding that such relationships are fluid, indefinite, confused, always under construction, not anchored, fixed or lasting; they are power struggles but without domination. Moreover, the relationships may even be perceived as a game, albeit often a serious one. Unlike a story, online activity is ongoing and discontinuous, interminable dialogue. The team’s study of Spanish adolescents shifts the sociological interest from understanding what adolescents do in this online space and its consequences to the problem of what this artefact formally imposes on communication and on their relationship interests.

Facial recognition by ear
Given that our facial expressions change, face recognition software must have the ability to cope with the movements of our eyebrows and mouths for instance. Now, researchers in Poland have added ears to the biometric mix in order to improve accuracy and efficiency of 3D facial recognition when different facial expressions are being presented to the system. When strong facial expressions are being presented, the addition of characteristics of a person’s ears can boost efficacy reducing the equal error rate so that it does not exceed 6.25% percent. Particularly effective, the team says is to combine powerful conventional 3D face recognition with analysis that includes their ear recognition algorithm.

Whistle while you work…or not
People stay “on task” and work more effectively if they listen to pleasant music relative to control groups working with no music. However, if unpleasant music is played while they work, heart rate and other cardiovascular measures rise and they make errors in the task. Heart and breathing rate are found to be lower in those working while listening to pleasant music. Other biometrics that were recorded in the experiments were blood oxygen saturation and arterial pressure. Of course, the difficulty in applying such research to the workplace is that people have different tastes in music.

Going viral
Marketers would really like to know what factors makes an online update, graphic, video or other digital entity “go viral”, what factors lead to the mass sharing of such an entity that can lead to huge numbers of potential customers or clients seeing the clip or information and perhaps even buying or signing up for a product or service with which it is associated. Unfortunately, despite many years of searching for a formula that would contrive to make an update go viral, nothing has yet been found that works reliably and repeatedly. However, researchers in Germany have now delineated the psychological principles and find seven specific concepts that might work together to make the chances of a given digital entity being a viral hit.

Call for papers: "Embracing the ASEAN Economic Community in Indonesia: the Convergence of Management and Technology"

For a special issue of the International Journal of Services Technology and Management.

The important roles that the countries in the South East Asian Nations (ASEAN) region have played in the past two decades have demonstrated a remarkable transition from being an individual player at a regional level, to being a network of global value chain for a popular investment destination of many multinational companies. Enabled by the benefits from a geographical proximity, the ASEAN Economic Community (AEC) officially commenced at the end of 2015 to foster collaboration and cooperation activities amongst the member countries in many areas. The key characteristic of the AEC is a single market and production-base, conceived to prepare the entire region to integrate into the global economy.

Although initially intended to establish a strong foundation for a fair economic development where each member can thrive, the AEC has indeed turned ASEAN into a highly competitive economic region; and ASEAN members are now at a crossroads. Whilst some member countries have been able to tap into the institutional stability, democracy and economic stability, others are still catching up with their counterparts. In order to succeed, each ASEAN nation must therefore develop new and
This special issue is proposed to stimulate further debate and discussion on the potentials and opportunities in embracing the AEC, and ultimately to disseminate the scientific and the knowledge-based research. We invite contributions from International researchers carrying out research about, or related to, Indonesia.

Call for papers: "Methods and Tools for Assurance of Critical Infrastructure Protection"

For a special issue of the International Journal of Critical Computer-Based Systems.

Modern society relies on large, heterogeneous, and complex software intensive systems to support all kinds of daily activities. Services such as urban transportation, logistics, healthcare, data communication, railway, aerospace, and power distribution, among others, are becoming heavily dependent on the availability of such infrastructures. Any discontinuity of service may lead to serious problems, from severe financial losses to fatalities or injuries. Discontinuity causes may have different natures, from human error or unexpected acts of nature to intentional attacks like sabotage or terrorism. Safety and security (S&S) assessments in critical infrastructures measure how these disruptions are handled and quantify the impact suffered by the critical infrastructure under abnormal operation. These assessments are normally performed using analytical or simulation based techniques often addressing one single specific aspect at a time rather than studying these infrastructures in a holistic manner.

This special issue aims at bringing together contributions by scientists and practitioners to shed light on the advancements on assurance methods and techniques for critical infrastructure protection. We invite investigators to contribute original research articles as well as review articles that assemble visions, ideas, experiences, and research advancement in this area.

The issue will carry revised and substantially extended versions of selected papers presented at the 1st International Workshop on Safety & Security aSSurance for Critical Infrastructures Protection (S4CIP 2016), but we also strongly encourage researchers unable to participate in the conference to submit articles for this call.

Suitable topics include, but are not limited, to the following:
  • Methods and methodologies: threat, vulnerability and risk assessment; model based penetration testing; security metrics definition and evaluation; RAMSS analysis; crisis and emergency management; unifying modelling methodologies for cyber and physical security; resilience engineering.
  • Modelling: stochastic modelling; formal methods; domain specific languages and model driven engineering; multi level hierarchical modelling; multi paradigm modelling.
  • Analysis: quantitative and qualitative evaluation; interconnections among non-functional aspects (e.g. reliability vs. Safety, Security vs. Performance); multisolution processes; resilience analysis
  • Domains: cyber physical systems; critical infrastructure protection; scada and control systems security; homeland security; transportations, manufacturing, energy, health and banking applications; computer networks and cloud infrastructures.

Call for papers: "ICTs for Active Learning in Stem Capstones"

For a special issue of the International Journal of Technology Enhanced Learning.

We live in a society where exposure to science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education plays a very important role in all aspects of life. Several initiatives have been undertaken worldwide to increase student interest in STEM fields and in the pursuit of STEM related careers. It is certainly to the advantage of a society to have scientifically literate citizens and school curricula that are tailored toward designs where practitioners adjust to various interdisciplinary collaborations and are socially responsible. Modern perspectives place more emphasis on student empowerment as learners exercised across a broad range of contexts, their capstone projects being a good example, by enhancing the development of cognitive, practical and transferable skills. Emphasis is also being placed on ideas that increase entrepreneurial awareness and lead to interesting applications but also improve the job opportunities of young people, connecting the graduates with the industry and the workforce in general. Addressing social problems effectively increasingly requires scientifically literate citizens and school curricula investing on innovations that involve basic science research, along with its applications and implications, environmental concerns and technology development.

Moreover, innovations in education are also important, inasmuch as education is a significant tool for developing not only well informed and knowledgeable citizens, but also socially responsible and creative individuals who will ensure continuation of scientific inquiry with sustainable outcomes.
Overall, a more ‘student centered’ and independent learning with the goal to increase experiential learning and job opportunities is currently recommended for STEM programs and in capstone projects. Faculty-mentored capstone projects are a vital component for the provision of high quality STEM education in modern academic institutions, typically engaging students in personalised learning experiences that provide the culmination of theoretical approaches and applied work practice experiences in the senior year of an undergraduate degree. The new trend focuses on project-based, often team-taught instruction which takes into consideration interdisciplinary perspectives. The capstone project in STEM disciplines typically provides students the opportunity to apply critical thinking and problem solving skills while investigating a specialised area of interest. Students synthesise the learning from core courses and STEM elective pathways to solve real-world problems related to their chosen fields. Usually students have the assistance of a capstone project teacher or mentor to guide them through their project deliverables. The capstone project should serve as a culminating demonstration of students’ active prior academic and technical knowledge and skills acquired, to address complex and authentic social problems. Effective capstone experiences should be tailored to specific disciplinary requirements, be mindful of student cohort size, and provide a variety of assessment tasks.

The new perspective helps students integrate and synthesise content from prior courses, further develop problem-solving and communication skills, and understand the significance of high quality knowledge, critical and practical skills as well as the process of production and delivery of knowledge. Capstone projects ensure that graduates will be able to transition successfully to various career pathways and graduate studies or gain employment in the competitive workplace. Recently there are efforts to engage more undergraduates in research and internships in comparison to the past where the most advanced and highly motivated students participated. As a result, there is need for a more formal process of capstone project development and mentoring to ensure that all students are adequately supported and for establishing consistency in the way students are mentored and assessed in their capstone projects.

In this special issue, selected best practices, enhanced with ICTs, for effective teaching of STEM curricula are considered in terms of applying various active learning didactical approaches. The integrated approach using active learning, problem solving, technology-driven learning innovation and other teaching strategies are analysed in terms of selected dimensions: goals, learning outcomes, pedagogical methods and techniques used. Comparison and analysis of the similarities and differences of the selected practices in terms of these dimensions are also welcome in order to develop a typology of best effective active learning strategies for STEM education.

Additional special emphasis is paid to the theoretical background in terms of learning theories and didactical/teaching best practices guide by interpreting a number of requirements in STEM capstone projects and the common ways in which capstone experiences are integrated into the curriculum. The notion of a capstone experience is to be explored and discuss this in relation to the objectives of methodologies for the effective provision of collaboration, mentoring and learning processes in typical capstone projects as related to the concepts of integrated Knowledge Management and Development and knowledge transfer.

Key issues will be considered in designing and implementing a capstone project and emphasis is put on the interpretation of modern available ICTs guides as recommended technological enabled toolkit with services available to students in capstone projects.

The objective is to communicate and disseminate recent Learning technologies, learning management, internet technology, and STEM research and success stories that demonstrate the power of ICTs technologies to improve the learning performance and learning experience with the provision of advanced services for learners and mentors in capstone projects. We will demonstrate state-of-the art approaches of emerging ICTS and applications and other innovative technologies that have had successful application worldwide and to show how new, advanced, user active learning designs, and collaborative learning strategies can expand the sustainability frontiers in advanced Technology Enhanced Learning towards the smart knowledge society vision.

Suitable topics include, but are not limited, to the following:
  • Learning theories best suited for the design of capstone projects
  • Methods used in the development of capstone projects
  • Active learning strategies in capstone projects
  • Promoting creative and critical thinking in capstone projects

Call for papers: "Developments in 3D Food Printing for People with Special Dietary Needs"

For a special issue of the International Journal of Rapid Manufacturing.

3D food printing is emerging as a high-resolution computer-aided-design and additive-manufacturing approach for producing food products. The benefits offered by 3D food printing include custom design and production of visually appealing foods, making foods for people with special mealtime needs, a reduction in design and fabrication time and cost, and a decrease in the dependency on skilled personnel among others.

While a host of 3D food printing research work has been published, the majority of the current work has been focused on technology development and experimenting with printing food samples. Thus so far, only a few efforts have been spent on tailoring 3D food printing for satisfying the dietary requirements of specific groups of people.

Particularly, there exist several groups of people who have requirements for foods with specific composition and handling process including: babies and toddlers, elderly people, pregnant women, people with swallowing difficulty, people with a weakened immune system, people on diets people with food allergies, people with gluten sensitivity, and athletes.

3D food printing can be used to address the special dietary requirements of these groups of people by automating the design and production of food, improving the consistency and repeatability of food characteristics including texture and moisture, enhancing the taste sensory experiences in the meal, and producing visually attractive food.

This special issue seeks research contributions that describe the achievements in building 3D printers for producing food, and will report on the exercises in 3D printing of food products for people with special dietary requirements. We invite contributions from the engineering, materials, exercise and nutrition, and medical researchers and relevant industries, and welcomes both fundamental as well as applied research contributions.
