From the Past to the Present: Evolution of Computing in the Sinhala Language

S. T. Nandasara IEEE Annals of the History of Computing, 2009

The Sinhala writing system used in Sri Lanka is syllabic and features as many as 2,300 glyphs. Computer equipment used to represent Sinhala language needs to facilitate this complexity, in both display and printing, without adding extra complexity to the keyboard or the input systems. This article surveys the evolution of Sinhala computing technology over the past 25 years.


Program visualization: the art of mapping programs to pictures

G. -C. Roman; K. C. Cox International Conference on Software Engineering, 1992

In this paper program visualization is defined as a mapping from programs to graphical representations. Simple forms of program visualization are frequently encountered in software engineering. For this reason current advances in program visualization are likely to influence future developments concerning software engineering tools and environments. This paper provides a new taxonomy of program visualization research. The proposed taxonomy becomes ...


Secure software architectures

M. Moriconi; Xiaolei Qian; R. A. Riemenschneider; Li Gong Proceedings. 1997 IEEE Symposium on Security and Privacy (Cat. No.97CB36097), 1997

The computer industry is increasingly dependent on open architectural standards for their competitive success. This paper describes a new approach to secure system design in which the various representations of the architecture of a software system are described formally and the desired security properties of the system are proven to hold at the architectural level. The main ideas are illustrated ...


Analysis of the Potential Benefits of Terminal Air Traffic Control Automation (TATCA)

Steven B. Boswell; John W. Andrews; Jerry D. Welch 1990 American Control Conference, 1990

Terminal Air Traffic Control Automation (TATCA) is an FAA research and development program to provide computer-aided sequencing, spacing, and management of air traffic flows in terminal areas. This paper discusses technical and national economic benefits that are attainable with such a terminal automation program.


Tape-less video technologies: issues in workflow transitions

F. Arman Proceedings IEEE International Conference on Multimedia Computing and Systems, 1999

This paper provides an overview of the issues when migrating from tape-based video systems to complete tape-less systems. The main focus is on workflow and how each system sub-component may effect the workflow. Workflow is discussed in detail due to its overwhelming effects on any organization that decides to undertake and implement change. The sub-systems discussed are storage, networking, media ...

  • Designing On-line Information

    Text, ConText, and HyperText presents recent developments in three related and important areas of technical communication: the design of effective documentation; the impact of new technology and research on technical writing; and the training and management of technical writers.The contributors are all authorities drawn from universities and industry who are active in defining and analyzing the role of computing in technical documentation and the role of documentation in the development of computing technology. This first synthesis of their diverse but related research provides a unique conceptualization of the field of computers and writing and documentation.The book first examines techniques for writing online documentation and the value of usability testing. It presents new research into the impact of human factors in screen design and designing online help, and looks at the impact of desktop publishing on documentation, and at visual literacy and graphic design.Artificial intelligence and documentation processing are then addressed with discussion of data acquisition, automated formatting in expert systems, and document databases; the uses of HyperText in documentation; and the future of technical writing in this new environment.Text, ConText, and HyperText concludes by examining the training and management of documentation groups: how they "learn to write" in industry, management of large-scale documentation projects and their effect on product development; and the "two cultures" of engineering and documentation.Edward Barrett is a Lecturer in the Writing Program at MIT. Text, ConText, and HyperText is included in the Information Systems series, edited by Michael Lesk.

  • Writers as Total Desktop Publishers: Developing a Conceptual Approach to Training

    This chapter explores a conceptually-based answer to the question of training total desktop publishers, focusing initial attention on the training of writers. It argues for developing a conceptual approach to training new users of desktop publishing and identifies some fundamental components that are related both to the process of publishing and to the quality of the document produced -- computer technology skills, problem-solving process skills, verbal skills, visual skills, and visual and verbal integration skills. The chapter then reports an observation of five writers learning to use desktop publishing and finds that the writers share problems with the computer technology, the visual skills, and the integration of the visual and verbal elements of a document. A discussion of developing conceptually-based training for desktop publishers closes the chapter.

  • Exploring the Connections Between Improved Technology—Workstation and Desktop Publishing and Improved Methodology—Document Databases

    The new desktop and workstation publishing technology presents documenters with three hurdles to overcome. First, it has been difficult to identify a comprehensive organization to integrate all the relevant hardware and software products 1. Second, the marketing of this new technology has paid scant attention to the supporting skills in typography, design, layouts, etc. which alone make the new technology effective 2, Although considerable attention is now paid to overcoming these two hurdles, a third hurdle has not yet been overcome. Little attention has been paid to creating and understanding the publishing methodologies needed to drive this publishing technology to its fullest potential.
