CleanEra : A Collection of Research Projects for Sustainable Aviation (2015)
Amsterdam : IOS Press
Keywords: aircraft ; civil aviation ; resources ; emissions ; sustainability
Notes: The CleanEra project was initiated with the goal of developing revolutionary ideas for civil aviation. These ideas were to offer solutions which would limit and reduce some of the negative aspects of aviation, namely: emissions and the use of resources. This book presents you with the highlights of this journey in search of new technologies for a revolutionary aircraft; an aircraft that not only offers a future of comfortable air travel for the passenger, but a future of sustainable aviation for the planet as well.

Let’s Put Data to Use: Digital Scholarship for the Next Generation : Proceedings of the 18th International Conference on Electronic Publishing (2014)
Amsterdam, Berlin, Tokyo, Washington, DC : IOS Press
Keywords: electronic publishing ; digital publishing
Notes: The ways in which research data is used and handled continue to capture public attention and are the focus of increasing interest. Electronic publishing is intrinsic to digital data management, and relevant to the fields of data mining, digital publishing and social networks, with their implications for scholarly communication, information services, e-learning, e-business and the cultural heritage sector. This book presents the proceedings of the 18th International Conference on Electronic Publishing (ELPUB), held in Thessaloniki, Greece, in June 2014. The conference brings together researchers and practitioners to discuss the many aspects of electronic publishing, and the theme this year is "Let’s put data to use: digital scholarship for the next generation". As well as examining the role of cultural heritage and service organisations in the creation, accessibility, duration and long-term preservation of data, it provides a discussion forum for the appraisal, citation and licensing of research data and the new developments in reviewing, publishing and editorial technology. The book is divided into sections covering the following topics: open access and open data; knowing the users better; researchers and their needs; specialized content for researchers; publishing and access; and practical aspects of electronic publishing. Providing an overview of all that is current in the electronic publishing world, this book will be of interest to practitioners, researchers and students in information science, as well as users of electronic publishing.

Physics Before and After Einstein (2005)
Amsterdam, Berlin, Tokyo, Washington, DC : IOS Press
Keywords: Einstein ; general relativity ; special relativity ; quantum theory ; cosmology ; gravitation
Notes: It is now a century ago that one of the icons of modern physics published some of the most influential scientific papers of all times. With his work on relativity and quantum theory, Albert Einstein has altered the field of physics forever. It should not come as a surprise that looking back at Einstein’s work, one needs to rethink the whole scope of physics, before and after his time. This books aims to provide a perspective on the history of modern physics, spanning from the late 19th century up to today. It is not an encyclopaedic work, but it presents the groundbreaking and sometimes provocative main contributions by Einstein as marking the line between ‘old’ and ‘new’ physics, and expands on some of the developments and open issues to which they gave rise. This presentation is not meant as a mere celebration of Einstein’s work, but as a critical appraisal which provides accurate historical and conceptual information. The contributing authors all have a reputation for working on themes related to Einstein’s work and its consequences. Therefore, the collection of papers gives a good representation of what happened in the 100 years after Einstein’s landmark Annalen der Physik articles. All people interested in the field of physics, history of science and epistemology could benefit from this book. An effort has been made to make the book attractive not only to scientists, but also to people with a more basic knowledge of mathematics and physics.

Social Shaping of Digital Publishing: Exploring the Interplay Between Culture and Technology : Proceedings of the 16th International Conference on Electronic Publishing (2012)
Amsterdam, Berlin, Tokyo, Washington, DC : IOS Press
Keywords: electronic publishing ; digital publishing
Notes: The processes and forms of electronic publishing have been changing since the advent of the Web. In recent years, the open access movement has been a major driver of scholarly communication, and change is also evident in other fields such as e-government and e-learning. Whilst many changes are driven by technological advances, an altered social reality is also pushing the boundaries of digital publishing. With 23 articles and 10 posters, Elpub 2012 focuses on the social shaping of digital publishing and explores the interplay between culture and technology. This book contains the proceedings of the conference, consisting of 11 accepted full articles and 12 articles accepted as extended abstracts. The articles are presented in groups, and cover the topics: digital scholarship and publishing; special archives; libraries and repositories; digital texts and readings; and future solutions and innovations. Offering an overview of the current situation and exploring the trends of the future, this book will be of interest to all those whose work involves digital publishing.

Mining the Digital Information Networks : Proceedings of the 17th International Conference on Electronic Publishing (2013)
Amsterdam, Berlin, Tokyo, Washington, DC : IOS Press
Keywords: electronic publishing ; digital publishing
Notes: Electronic publishing is continuously changing; new technologies open new ways for individuals, scholars, communities and networks to establish contacts, exchange data, produce information and share knowledge on a variety of devices, from personal computers to mobile media. There is an urgent need to rethink electronic publishing in order to develop and use new communication paradigms and technologies, and to devise a truly digital format for the future. This book presents the conference proceedings of the ELPUB 2013 conference, held in Karlskrona, Sweden, in June 2013. The main theme of the conference is extracting and processing data from the vast wealth of digital publishing, and the ways to use and reuse this information in innovative social contexts in a sustainable way. The conference brings together researchers and practitioners to discuss data mining, digital publishing and social networks, along with their implications for scholarly communication, information services, e-learning, e-businesses, the cultural heritage sector and other areas where electronic publishing is imperative. The book is divided into three sections: full research articles, full professional articles and extended abstracts. Each section is further subdivided into Data Mining and Intelligent Computing, Publishing and Access and Social Computing and Practices. Focusing on key issues surrounding the development of methods for gathering and processing information, and on the means for making these data useful and accessible, this book will be of interest to the whole digital community.
