Healthcare Analytics in Action
Joe Doyle, Erwin H. Schell Professor of Management, Professor of Applied Economics Learn how data can be used to measure value in healthcare. In particular, the use of randomized trials, along with natural experiments that focus on the effective random assignment of treatment to patients, can provide credible estimates of the effects of healthcare delivery reforms on costs and patient health.

What Happened to Collaborative Design?
In this paper we present the results of a comprehensive literature survey on the development of collaborative design. We reviewed 324 papers on collaborative design, taken from various sources (conferences, journals, and PhD-theses). We grouped the papers based on common themes, and in that way derived a classification of themes through the last 25 years (1983-2008). Each category is described, its development, and key publications are identified.

Stereotype Threat: How it affects us and what we can do about it
Claude Steele, internationally renowned social scientist and Executive Vice Chancellor and Provost, will discuss his theory of stereotype threat, which has been the focus of much of his research and writing throughout his academic career. The theory examines how people from different groups, being threatened by different stereotypes, can have quite different experiences in the same situation. It has also been used to understand group differences in performance ranging from the intellectual to th

2.4.2 The visual arts These are closely related to archaeology. They, too, are things we can look at and touch after all. The difference is very much one of interpretation. Are the Parthenon statues art or archaeology; is an ancient painted pot art or archaeology? In order to avoid such questions, many people use the term ‘material culture’ to cover both. For many purposes, the difference doesn't matter. In fact, it is a good illustration of the advantages of interdisciplinary work, with different kinds of app

Cyclic compaction of soft-hard powder mixtures
Cyclic compaction of powder mixtures has been shown to be more effective compared to â classicâ static compaction. The goal of this work was to understand cyclic compaction and identify the origin of the improved compressibility of brittle powders and their composites. In particular, we tried to detect systematic effects of particle size, and wall friction on green density and strength of composite powder mixtures. In this thesis we will discuss: a) a review of the existing literature, b) a
