### Pressing Its Luck: How Ontario Lottery and Gaming Can Work For, Not Against, Low-Income Households

Brian Dijkema & Johanna Wolfert
In this paper, we tell the story of Ontario’s involvement with gambling and explore how it got hooked. The state has not always been the leading dealer in gambling or user of the revenue it produces. In fact, gaming’s path from an illegal and suppressed activity to a legal one, and its eventual transmogrification into a lean, mean, revenue machine having the government’s full support and encouragement, was circuitous and filled with ironies and unintended...

### Securing Smart Homes with OpenFlow

The Internet of Things (IoT) trend is introducing additional devices to home networks. Home networks face the same threats as every other network. Recently, IoT devices have been compromised by attackers and used as staging points for further attacks. Home users may not have the technical capability or funding to run advanced security devices designed to protect enterprises. Solutions to this problem exist, but in some cases, they rely on third party cloud services or...

### Augmented Reality Map Navigation with Freehand Gestures

Kadek Ananta Satriadi, Barrett Ens, Maxime Cordeil, Tobias Czauderna, Wesley J. Willett & Bernhard Jenny
Freehand gesture interaction has long been proposed as a ’natural’ input method for Augmented Reality (AR) applications, yet has been little explored for intensive applications like multiscale navigation. In multiscale navigation, such as digital map navigation, pan and zoom are the predominant interactions. A position-based input mapping (e.g. grabbing metaphor) is intuitive for such interactions, but is prone to arm fatigue. This work focuses on improving digital map navigation in AR with mid-air hand gestures,...

### Sketching and Ideation Activities for Situated Visualization Design

Nathalie Bressa, Kendra Wannamaker, Henrik Korsgaard, Wesley J. Willett & Jo Vermeulen
We report on findings from seven design workshops that used ideation and sketching activities to prototype new situated visualizations — representations of data that are displayed in proximity to the physical referents (such as people, objects, and locations) to which the data is related. Designing situated visualizations requires a fine-grained understanding of the context in which the visualizations are placed, as well as an exploration of different options for placement and form factors, which existing...

### Infrastructure Policy Trends: Critical Mineral Mining in Canada

Alaz Munzur
Critical minerals are commodities with few effective substitutes like nickel, uranium, copper and cobalt. Their “criticality” depends on factors like market volatility, supply risk, environmental impact and priorities regarding economic development and national security. It is an evolving term and a mineral commodity considered critical now may be less so in the future. These minerals are essential for a functioning economy since they are vital inputs in almost all industries from defence to telecommunications, manufacturing...

### The key role of No-Carbon State-Owned Enterprises in Global Climate Action: Leveraging the G20 forum to accelerate the energy transition

Leonardo Beltran-Rodriguez & Juan Roberto Lozano-Maya
The energy sector is the single largest source of carbon emissions, for which actions oriented to reduce its carbon intensity are critical to effectively tackle climate change. A great and yet largely untapped potential to reduce its emissions lies in oil and gas companies. Cognizant of this potential, in recent years several International Oil Companies (IOCs), publicly traded organizations with large capital access and wide geographical reach, have looked forward to effectively reduce their carbon...

### Schröder partitions, Schröder tableaux and weak poset patterns

Luca Ferrari
We introduce the notions of Schröder shapes and Schröder tableaux, which provide an analog of the classical notions of Young shapes and Young tableaux. We investigate some properties of the partial order given by containment of Schröder shapes. Then we propose an algorithm that is the natural analog of the well-known RS correspondence for Young tableaux, and we characterize those permutations whose insertion tableaux have some special shapes. The last part of the article relates...

### Equivalent classes of degree sequences for triangulated polyhedra and their convex realization

Pascal Honvault
We define an equivalence on the set of all degree sequences of a triangulated polyhedron with a fixed number of vertices and compute them and their cardinal via an algorithm. We also prove that each class is realizable as a convex polyhedron.

### Fostering Collaborative Learning in an Undergraduate Interdisciplinary Education Course

Barbara Brown, Christy Thomas, Joshua Hill & Gabriela Alonso-Yañez
An interdisciplinary approach to designing lessons requires collaboration among teachers. In undergraduate programs in education, faculty often assign group tasks and students struggle with negotiating ideas and effectively engaging in collaborative learning with peers. In this study, researchers used repeated surveys and social network analysis to examine pre-service teachers’ peer-group interactions while co-designing an interdisciplinary unit plan. Findings suggest effective relationships are needed to support collaborative learning, peer leaders can support collaborative learning and instructors...
