Publishing Datasets from an Open Access Repository As Linked Data

Hui Zhang
Exposing research data from traditional repository systems such as DSpace in Linked Data has numerous benefits such as increasing visibility, prompting open access, and interlinking datasets with elements such as authors. For a successful implementation, it is crucial to preserve object structure (e.g., hierarchical and related) in Linked Data in addition to bibliographic metadata. This demonstration showcases a case study of migrating datasets from DSpace to a newly development institutional repository with Hydra technology including...

Engineering excellence: the ability to design

Andrew T.M. Phillips
Presentation given at the Institution of Structural Engineers (IStructE) Academics' Conference 2015. Engineering leaders are 'T' shaped people, with a depth of specific technical knowledge and understanding and a breadth of diverse interests and influences; university degree courses must allow students to develop both parts of the 'T'.

The link between collisional tectonics and arc magmatism in the Paleozoic Famatina arc, Argentina

Sean Mulcahy, Sarah Roeske & William McClelland
Mulcahy, S.R., Roekse, S.M., McClelland, W.C., 2014, The link between collisional tectonics and arc magmatism in the Paleozoic Famatina arc,
Argentina, AGU Fall Meeting. Studies of the Famatina margin of northwest Argentina highlight the challenges in understanding the links between Cordilleran arc processes, terrane accretion, and lower crustal deformation, metamorphism, and magmatism. The evolution of the Famatina arc suggests that regional convergence and lower crustal shortening drove voluminous arc magmatism during terrane accretion, pervasive melting of...

When is the best time to sample migrating birds in the air with weather surveillance radar to determine their stopover density at the ground?

Jeff Buler, Eric Walters, Jaclyn Smolinsky, Deanna Dawson, Matt Boone, Tim Schreckengost & Andrew Arnold
Presented during Radar Symposium at the AOU/COS meeting in Norman, Oklahoma in July/August 2015. Weather surveillance radar is a useful tool for mapping stopover distributions of migratory landbirds as it detects birds low to the ground as they begin nocturnal migratory flight. This approach is sensitive to the time flight exodus is sampled since the number of birds in the air during this time changes rapidly. Thus, an empirical determination is needed to identify the...

Comparative Genomics of pectinacetylesterases: insight on function and biology

Amancio José De Souza & Markus Pauly
Pectin acetylation influences the gelling ability of this important plant polysaccharide for the food industry. Plant apoplastic pectinacetylesterases (PAEs) play a key role in regulating the degree of pectin acetylation and modifying their expression thus represents one way to engineer plant polysaccharides for food applications. Identifying the major active enzymes within the PAE gene family will aid in our understanding of this biological phenomena as well as provide the tools for direct trait manipulation. Using...

Pimp my profile

Corey Bradshaw
Workshop on being prolific online for early-career scientists. Presented at the International Congress for Conservation Biology, Monpellier, France 2015

2014 AOU talk

Joanna Hubbard, Amanda Hund, & Rebecca Safran
A central theme of evolutionary research is to understand the source and function of phenotypic variation. For most phenotypic traits, sources of variation can be partitioned into genetic or environmental variation. Identifying the proportion of variance due to these components allows for predictions regarding phenotypic responses to variable environments and selection to be made. Barn swallow subspecies have divergent phenotypes and it appears that the focal trait for female preferences has also diverged. We examined...

Mechanical design of powered prosthetic leg and walking pattern generation based on motion capture data

&
In this paper, we describe the design procedure of an above-knee powered prosthetic leg and an algorithm to generate appropriate gait patterns that are synchronized with the movement of the user. The developed prosthetic leg has powered knee and ankle joints for transfemoral amputees, and its weight and dimensions were determined on the basis of human body data. In particular, two degrees of freedom (roll and pitch axes) were adopted in the ankle joint to...

Talk on Arch-V at 2014 Digital Humanities Conference

Carl Stahmer
Slides from my presentation at the 2014 Digital Humanities conference in Lausanne, Switzerland. The talk introduces Archive Vision (Arch-V) a new platform for the automated, content-based image recognition and search of historical printed material. The software was developed with funds from the National Endowment for the Humanities, Office of Digital Humanities.

Presentation on BIBFLOW at DLF 2014

Carl Stahmer
Slides from my presentation at the 2014 Digital Library Federation. The talk introduces BIBFLOW, an IMLS funded project focused on understanding the implication of Linked Data adoption for the internal operations of libraries. It introduces the many library internal software and human systems that will be affected by the transition to BIBFRAME or any other Linked Data storage and communication data store.

ESTC21 at TEI 2014

Carl Stahmer
Slides from my talk at the 2014 conference of the Text Encoding Initiative. The talk was focused on the re-design of the ESTC as the ESTC21, a linked data native version of the catalogue. It introduced the idea of collaborative record curation, stressing the importance of tracking record provenance in the new, collaborative environment.
