Traffic navigation systems linked to accident risk: Study
A new study by researchers at the University of Toronto Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) Centre and Testbed suggests in-car systems, designed to guide drivers around traffic jams and accidents quickly, could actually cause a temporary surge in the risk of accidents. (2003-07-31)

NIST helps ensure reliability of trace explosive detectors
In an effort to enhance homeland security, NIST chemists are developing new ways to (2003-05-28)

Syndromic surveillance for bioterrorism following World Trade Center attack
This report describes the operational and maintenance aspects of conducting syndromic surveillance for bioterrorism and demonstrates the limitations of drop-in systems that rely on manual data collection. (2003-02-27)

Patients with chronic illness not benefiting from advances in care
Many patients with chronic diseases are not benefiting from advances in care because of a lack of financial and staff resources, inadequate information systems, and doctors' heavy workload, argue US researchers in this week's BMJ. (2002-10-24)

The Second Conference on the History and Heritage of Scientific and Technical Information Systems
Emphasis for this conference will be on scientific and technical information systems in the period from the Second World War up through the early 1990s. Forty historians of science and technology, information scientists and scientists in other fields will be delivering papers on a wide range of topics: informatics in chemistry, biology and medicine; information developments in multi-national, industrial and military settings; biographical studies of pioneering individuals; and the transformation of information systems.

HFES 46th Annual Meeting changes venue and dates
The Human Factors and Ergonomics Society 46th Annual Meeting, originally scheduled for September 23-27 in Pittsburgh, has been changed. The meeting will be held September 30-October 4, 2002 at the Baltimore Marriott Harborside Hotel. (2002-04-02)

Carnegie Mellon CASOS Conference June 21-23
This conference explores advances in computational social and organizational science. Of particular interest is recent work in any of the following areas: computational theorizing about complex social systems; computational or network based analysis tools for studying complex social or organizational systems, social-psychological, social, organizational, political and technological systems; empirical tests of computational, mathematical, or logical models; formal complex systems models; computational models of impact of new technologies and multi-agent network models.

Researchers will study cell growth, differentiation
The University of Washington Cell Systems Initiative hopes to develop a prototype of an observation platform that will allow real-time measurement of complex processes within the cell. (2002-03-12)

Current NHS appointment systems "are stale, at best"
More flexible appointment systems at NHS outpatient clinics and general practices are needed to reduce rates of non-attendance, particularly among deprived populations, suggest researchers in this week's BMJ. Non-attendance at outpatient clinics in the United Kingdom are thought to range from 5% to 34% and in general practices, figures of 3% and 6.5% have been reported. (2001-11-08)

Penn scientists win $1.26 million to study microfluidic systems
Researchers at the University of Pennsylvania have received a three-year, $1.26 million grant, part of a push to develop minute, fluid-based systems that could be used to safely detect minuscule quantities of airborne pathogens, analyze blood in real time and inconspicuously monitor the safety of food and water.

Is Europe prepared for an international disease outbreak?
Networks of national surveillance organisations in Europe need to be improved to ensure effective control of disease outbreaks, concludes a study in this week's BMJ. These findings have important implications, not only for potential outbreaks such as salmonella or influenza, but also in the light of current concerns about future terrorist attacks involving biological weapons.

United Kingdom ranked 24th in health systems of the world
Countries with the best levels of health do not always have efficient health systems, according to a study in this week's BMJ, which ranks the health systems of the world according to their efficiency in turning expenditure into health. The United Kingdom is ranked 24th out of 191 countries. (2001-08-09)

Green light special
Bright new green light emitting diodes, or LEDs, are replacing incandescent bulbs in traffic lights around the country. LEDs use much less electricity and last 10 years or longer, compared with the two-year life span of incandescent lights. ONR was a pioneering supporter of the materials technology in these bright green LEDs, which are manufactured from gallium nitride. (2000-10-05)

Marshall Center awards $137 million contract option to Computer Sciences Corporation
NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Ala., has exercised an option to continue an existing contract with Computer Sciences Corporation (CSC) to provide information services to Marshall and all other NASA facilities. (2000-05-04)

Better weather information
The Office of Naval Research, under a cost-shared cooperative agreement with Lockheed Martin, will begin a month-long demonstration of a weather radar capability that uses the Navy's SPY-1 phased array radar. (1999-08-09)

UCSB Transistor Triumphs
A next-generation transistor developed by Dr. M. J. W. Rodell and his team at U.C. Santa Barbara recently set a world record achieving a maximum frequency of oscillation of 1200 gigahertz -- about 2,000 times faster than transistors in today's computers. (1999-05-10)

New SafeNet System Lets Individual Safety Devices Actually Talk To Each Other
Safety systems have long preferred to stay in splendid paranoid isolation. Now a new integrated approach to safety systems has been devised called SafeNet which allows a manufacturing plant, or other system operator, to integrate all their safety systems in a single network. (1999-01-28)

Latest Technology Brings Unwanted Chaos To Company Stock Controls And Supply Chains
The latest computerised stock control systems are quite literally causing chaos in company supply chains according to new research just published by Richard Wilding at the Warwick Manufacturing Group at the University of Warwick. (1997-11-28)

Carnegie Mellon Receives $1.5 Million From Lockheed Martin To Develop Mobile, Wearable Computer Systems For Aircraft Maintenance And Repair
Carnegie Mellon University researchers have received $1.5 million from Lockheed Martin Information Systems to help develop mobile, wearable computer systems giving U.S. Air Force aircraft mechanics and technicians fast, easy access to maintenance and repair information. Project will help the Air Force cut time, cost of aircraft maintainance and repair. (1997-11-20)
