Understanding and analyzing chat in CSCL as reading s work

Synchronous communication using text chat--often combined with a shared whiteboard--is increasingly used in CSCL. This form of interaction and learning in small online groups of students presents novel challenges, both for the participating students and for researchers studying their work. Chats differ from talk-in-interaction since the composition, posting and visual inspection of text and graphical objects by any given actor is not observable by the other participants. These structural constraints on the organization of interaction require that actors deploy alternative procedures for achieving what turn taking achieves in talk-in-interaction. This paper describes how communication is organized in text chat, where postings have to provide instructions on how they are to be read. This organization is contrasted with turn taking in face-to-face communication. The notion of "reading's work" provides a guiding thread, which is explicated.

Semantic service discovery with heuristic relevance calculation
Özyönüm, Müge; Doğru, Ali Hikmet; Department of Computer Engineering (2010)
In this thesis, a semantically aided web service and restful service search mechanism is presented that makes use of an ontology. The mechanism relates method names, input and output parameters for ontology guided matches and offers results with varying relevance corresponding to the matching degree. The mechanism is demonstrated using an experimental domain that is tourism and travel. An ontology is created to support a set of web services that exist in this domain.
Development of a ReaxFF Reactive Force Field for Interstitial Oxygen in Germanium and Its Application to GeO2/Ge Interfaces
Nayir, Nadire; van Duin, Adri C. T.; Erkoç, Şakir (American Chemical Society (ACS), 2019-01-17)
We developed the ReaxFF force field parameters for Ge/O/H interactions, specifically targeted for the applications of Ge/GeO2 interfaces and O-diffusion in bulk Ge. The original training set, taken from the Zheng et al. work, includes quantum mechanics (QM) data for equations of state and heats of formation of GeO and GeO2 condensed phases as well as dissociation energies for single and double bonds of Ge and angle distortion of O-Ge-O. We expanded this training set with the additional crystal data containi...
On the retrial and redial phenomena in GSM networks
Onur, Ertan; Ersoy, C; Caglayan, MU (2000-01-01)
GSM operators work with call data that include retrials and redials as well. Based on these inflated, virtual call attempt statistics, it appears that enormous demands are put on the available spectrum. In this paper, we develop simple models to estimate the expected number of retrials and redials per original call attempt, which is used to determine the effective load and the number of traffic channels required to meet the grade of service. It is shown that significantly fewer channels are capable of handl...

A novel extension to proposal-based detection is proposed in order to learn convolutional context features for determining boundaries of objects better. Objects and their context are aimed to be learned through parallel convolutional stages. The resulting object and context feature maps are combined in such a way that they preserve their spatial relationship. The proposed algorithm is trained and evaluated on PASCAL VOC 2007 detection benchmark dataset and yielded improvements in performance over baseline, ...
Enhancing xcoseml with connector variability for component oriented development.
Çetinkaya, Anıl; Kaya, Muhammed Çağrı; Doğru, Ali Hikmet (null; 2017-01-17)
Based on the need for defining configurable interaction options among components, the XCOSEML language is extended with connector variability support. Extended metamodel and grammar are provided. An example system is presented for the demonstration of the extended version of the language. This research is conducted to partially enhance the default decomposition view of the Component Oriented Software Engineering Modeling Language (COSEML) towards application construction capabilities.
