Subject: Developing Countries - Resources online - IFORS --- with newest contributions (39)  From: Jonathan Grudin Subject: ACM human-computer interaction history effort (56) -------------------------------------------------------------------------- Date: 2019-10-20 06:06:54+00:00 From: Gerhard-Wilhelm Weber Subject: Developing Countries - Resources online - IFORS --- with newest contributions Operations Research (OR) for Development Dear Colleagues, The aim of the IFORS Developing Countries Online Resources page is to offer the OR worker all publicly-available materials on the topic of OR for Development. It also aims to provide a venue for people who are working in the area to share their completed or in-process work, learn from others, and stimulate comments and discussions on the work. Regarding IFORS Developing Countries OR resources website, its regular updates - and your possible submission of "free" (not copyright protected) material, you might occasionally visit http://ifors.org/developing_countries/index.php?title=Main_Page. "Operational Research" (OR) is the discipline of applying advanced analytical methods to help make better decisions. By using techniques such as problem structuring methods and mathematical modelling to analyze complex situations, Operational Research gives executives the power to make more effective decisions and build more productive systems. The International Federation of Operational Research Societies (IFORS; http://ifors.org/) is an almost 60-year old organization which is currently composed of 51 national societies. Regional Groups of IFORS are: ALIO (The Latin American Ibero Association on Operations Research), APORS (The Association of Asian-Pacific Operational Research Societies), EURO (The Association of European Operational Research Societies), NORAM (The Association of North American Operations Research Societies). IFORS conferences are taking place every three years. IFORS 2020 will be celebrated in Seoul, South Korea (http://www.ifors2020.kr/). Thank you very much for your attention. With kind regards, best wishes, Gerhard-Wilhelm Weber PS: Feedback is welcome via firstname.lastname@example.org. -------------------------------------------------------------------------- Date: 2019-10-19 04:53:35+00:00 From: Jonathan Grudin Subject: ACM human-computer interaction history effort Hello all, The ACM Special Interest Group on Computer-Human Interaction has just initiated an effort to foster historical research by collecting materials that students, historians, and others can freely access. With no historians, taxonomists, data repository experts as yet attached to the project, there is ample opportunity to participate and lead parts of the project. There are three principal efforts. 1. Digitize paper and video material from the past. This is underway. Brad Myers of CMU is working on paper, Catherine Plaisant of UMD on video. 2. Collect oral histories of people who were involved in HCI in different times and regions. People with experience conducting oral histories would be welcome as advisors or participate. Limited funding to cover some costs or to conduct an initial model oral history is possible. Ron Baecker (University of Toronto Emeritus, Visiting Professor at Columbia University) is on point for this. 3. Design and build a searchable repository with links to existing digital material that describes, analyzes, or synthesizes aspects of HCI's past. Links not to primary source material but to material that takes a perspective on the past: Sites with anniversary commemoration meeting videos or transcripts, articles that consider an aspect of HCI history, and so on. The repository could include relevant non-digital museum archives and books with brief synopses. Finding help for (3), designing a flexible system to handle the storage and retrieval of information, the right tags and indices, is the task of Loren Terveen of University of Minnesota and me. A known difficult problem, with different terms used for the same thing at one time or at different times, the same word used for different things at one time or different times, some events occurring on a specific date, others over a stretch of time, some elements are parts of different wholes, and so on. Guidance on this would be great and active participation or leadership welcome. A starter set of essays, articles, and books can be pulled together, but planning will be needed to collect links to materials from different fields, times, regions and languages.
