Medical Simulation: International Symposium, ISMS 2004, by Alessandro Nava, Edoardo Mazza, Oliver Haefner, Michael

By Alessandro Nava, Edoardo Mazza, Oliver Haefner, Michael Bajka (auth.), Stéphane Cotin, Dimitris Metaxas (eds.)

This booklet includes the written contributions to the overseas Symposium on th scientific Simulation (ISMS’04) held in Cambridge, Massachusetts, united states on June 17 th and June 18 , 2004. Manuscripts are equipped round 5 thematic sections in relation to the multidisciplinary box of scientific Simulation: smooth Tissue houses and Modeling, Haptic Rendering, Real-Time Deformable types, Anatomical Modeling, and improvement Frameworks. The goals of the symposium are to collect researchers to give their most up-to-date, and promising paintings, to spotlight study developments and foster discussion and debates between individuals. reside demonstrations also are integrated on the assembly, yet can't be integrated during this quantity. ultimately, to handle questions about components for development and destiny instructions of the sphere, we geared up a panel of specialists together with technical, scientific and academic representatives. This occasion maintains the winning symposium equipped through Hervé Delingette and Nicholas Ayache, in France in June 2003. At that assembly we agreed that it'd be worthwhile for the neighborhood to have an annual amassing for the scientific simulation group the place researchers can trade rules and proportion their paintings during this rising box. ISMS’04 is co-organized via CIMIT / Harvard scientific college and Rutgers University.

Congress and the Decline of Public Trust by Joseph Cooper

By Joseph Cooper

Since the time of Watergate and Vietnam, belief in govt has fallen precipitously. this may simply be sensed within the apathy and divisiveness that now represent American politics, however it is likely to be so much essentially published in ballot facts. the nice majority of american citizens don't belief the govt. “to do what’s correct all or many of the time”.

By Junhui He, Jiwu Huang, Guoping Qiu (auth.), Mauro Barni, Ingemar Cox, Ton Kalker, Hyoung-Joong Kim (eds.)

We are overjoyed to welcome the attendees of the Fourth foreign Wo- store on electronic Watermarking (IWDW). Watermarking maintains to generate powerful educational curiosity. Commercialization of the expertise is continuing at a steadypace. We haveseen watermarkingadoptedfor DVD audio.Fingerpri- ing expertise used to be effectively used to figure out the resource of pirated video fabric. in addition, a couple of businesses are utilizing watermarking as an allowing expertise for broadcast tracking providers. Watermarking of electronic cinema contentis expected. destiny purposes can also come from components- concerning electronic rights administration. for instance, using watermarking to augment legacy broadcast and communique platforms is now being thought of. IWDW 2005 o?ers a chance to re?ect upon the state-of-the-art in electronic watermarking in addition to talk about instructions for destiny learn and functions. This 12 months we accredited 31 papers from seventy four submissions. This forty two% popularity cost exhibits our dedication to making sure a truly prime quality convention. We thankthemembersoftheTechnicalProgramCommitteeformakingthispossible by way of their well timed and insightful stories. due to their exertions this can be the ?rst IWDW at which the ?nal court cases can be found to the individuals on the time of the workshop as a Springer LNCS publication.
