A policy is typically described as a principle or rule to guide decisions and achieve rational outcome(s). The term is not normally used to denote what is actually done, this is normally referred to as either procedure or protocol. (Wikipedia.org)

A modest proposal: licensing personal computers and Internet service providers

C. Ray IEEE Systems, Man and Cybernetics SocietyInformation Assurance Workshop, 2003., 2003

As the threat to the Internet at large from poorly configured or maintained personal computers continues to increase it is increasingly important to consider ways to 'harden' these machines. By adopting a model based on the already familiar requirement for licensing and safety checks for individually owned vehicles operated on public thoroughfares, it may be possible to facilitate the public ...


An agent-based simulation of a Tuberculosis epidemic: Understanding the timing of transmission

Parastu Kasaie; David W. Dowdy; W. David Kelton 2013 Winter Simulations Conference (WSC), 2013

Tuberculosis (TB) transmission is a key factor for disease-control policy, but the timing and distribution of transmission and the role of social contacts remain obscure. We develop an agent-based simulation of a TB epidemic in a single population, and consider a hierarchically structured contact network in three levels, typical of airborne diseases. The parameters are adopted from the literature, and ...


Capacity management and patient scheduling in an outpatient clinic using discrete event simulation

Gokce Akin; Julie S. Ivy; Todd R. Huschka; Thomas R. Rohleder; Yariv N. Marmor 2013 Winter Simulations Conference (WSC), 2013

Capacity management and scheduling decisions are important for managing an outpatient clinic in which multiple classes of patients are treated. After an appointment is scheduled, it can be rescheduled, cancelled, or a patient may not show-up on their appointment day. This study simulates the behavior of patients with regard to the time to appointment, examining different demand rates and service ...


Resource allocation policy to avoid interference between cellular and D2D Links/ and D2D links in mobile networks

Hyung-sub Kim; Jee-hyeon Na; Eunsun Cho The International Conference on Information Networking 2014 (ICOIN2014), 2014

To cope with data communication explosion, the alternative, "D2D communication" which enables mobile devices to communicate each other without base station is studied. D2D providing service at a lower cost than cellular network is advantageous for user and also helpful when infra system is out of order by natural disaster. Even if D2D communication has a lot of benefits, that ...


Ordering Policies under Minimal Repair

Kyung S. Park; Young T. Park IEEE Transactions on Reliability, 1986

Many maintenance policies in the literature have assumed that whenever a unit is to be replaced, a new unit is immediately available. However, if the procurement lead time is not negligible, an ordering policy should determine when to order a spare and when to replace the operating unit. This paper proposes and analyzes two ordering policies for replacement with minimal ...

  • Interconnections and Settlements

    For years, the world saw the Internet as a creature of theU.S. Department of Defense. Now some claim that the Internet is aself-governing organism controlled by no one and needing nooversight. Although the National Science Foundation and othergovernment agencies continue to support and oversee criticaladministrative and coordinating functions, the Internet is remarkablydecentralized and uninstitutionalized. As it grows in scope,bandwidth, and functionality, the Internet will require greatercoordination, but it is not yet clear what kind of coordinatingmechanisms will evolve.The essays in this volume clarify these issues and suggest possiblemodels for governing the Internet. The topics addressed range fromsettlements and statistics collection to the sprawling problem ofdomain names, which affects the commercial interests of millions ofcompanies around the world. One recurrent theme is the inseparabilityof technical and policy issues in any discussion involving theInternet.Contributors:Guy Almes, Ashley Andeen, Joseph P. Bailey, Steven M.

  • Biomass Burning and Climate

    The burning of biomass - forests, grasslands, and agricultural fields after the harvest - is much more widespread and extensive than previously believed; most biomass burning is thought to be initiated by humans and is on the increase. This comprehensive volume is the first to consider biomass burning as a global phenomenon and to assess its impact on the atmosphere, on climate, and on the biosphere itself. The 63 chapters by 158 scientists - including leading biomass burn researchers from third-world countries, such as Brazil, Nigeria, Zaire, India, and China, where biomass burning is so prevalent - point to biomass burning as a significant driver of global change on our planet.Global Biomass Burning provides a convenient and current reference on such topics as the remote sensing of biomass burning from space, the geographical distribution of burning; the combustion products of burning in tropical, temperate, and boreal ecosystems; burning as a global source of atmospheric gases and particulates; the impact of biomass burning gases and particulates on global climate; and the role of biomass burning on biodiversity and past global extinctions.Also included are contributions on the importance of biomass burning from the International Geosphere-Biosphere Program: A Study of Global Change and from the International Global Atmospheric Chemistry Project, as well as policy options prepared by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency for managing biomass burning to mitigate global climate change.Joel S. Levine is Senior Research Scientist in the Atmospheric Sciences Division, NASA Langley Research Center and is the Principal Investigator of NASA's research program on global biomass burning, Biospheric Research Program, Office of Space Sciences and Applications.

  • Changing Traffic Law for Cyclists

    This new edition of John Forester's handbook for transportation policy makers and bicycling advocates has been completely rewritten to reflect changes of the last decade. It includes new chapters on European bikeway engineering, city planning, integration with mass transit and long-distance carriers, "traffic calming," and the art of encouraging private-sector support for bicycle commuting.A professional engineer and an avid bicyclist, John Forester combined those interests in founding the discipline of cycling transportation engineering, which regards bicycling as a form of vehicular transportation equal to any other form of transportation. Forester, who believes that riding a bicycle along streets with traffic is safer than pedaling on restricted bike paths and bike lanes, argues the case for cyclists' rights with zeal and with statistics based on experience, traffic studies, and roadway design standards. Over the nearly two decades since Bicycle Transportation was first published, he has brought about many changes in the national standards for highways, bikeways, bicycles, and traffic laws. His Effective Cycling Program continues to grow.
