Agendas for 21st Century Engineers

This book is for engineers of different disciplines, such as chemical, electrical, petroleum, mechanical and civil engineering, and will appeal both to the experienced professional engineer and to undergraduate or postgraduate engineering students.This singular volume presents selected articles on themes that arise at the interface...

Esthetic Experiments

Contemporary American landscape is wrought with ongoing processes and phenomena of technicization observable at the intersections of multiple layers of society. This book brings to attention their cultural and political aspects, emphasizing timeliness and necessity of academic intervention into, and evaluation of, their specificity...

In the Place of Sound

In early June 2006, a group of over one hundred artists and researchers met for a three-day conference in the Architecture Building at Ryerson University in Toronto, Canada, to discuss—from as many different viewpoints as possible—the varying relationships between sound and space. This conference was part of soundaXis, a city-wide ...

Philosophy of Engineering and Artifact in the Digital Age

Our world became engineered, remaining, nevertheless, human.Through the philosophy of engineering, both Engineering and Philosophy are profoundly involved in the transcendental curve of the debates on the future of humankind in the Era of the Artifacts, brought by the emergent technologies of robotics, genetic engineering and nanot...

Socio-Economic Impacts of Landmines in Southern Kurdistan

The Kurdistan Region of Iraq has been massively contaminated by landmines and unexploded ordnance. This will continue to be a major obstacle for development and economic growth, particularly in the rural border communities. The mines were used systematically by the central Baathist government in its efforts to de-populate the Kurdi...

The Future of Post-Human Engineering

Why should mass media be informational and accurate as much as its proponents would claim—and, conversely, disinformational and propagandistic as much as its critics would argue? Contrary to the conventional wisdom held by many since the modern era of mass media, neither of the two opposing views is correct, to the extent that a t...

The Leadership Imperative

This innovative work combines the fields of e-tourism adoption and strategic management, and identifies the combination of antecedents of technology adoption by distilling factors to identify the key determinant of the adoption of the internet for sales and marketing purposes in small, owner-managed travel firms. While it focuses o...

Information Infrastructure(s)

This book marks an important contribution to the fascinating debate on the role that information infrastructures and boundary objects play in contemporary life, bringing to the fore the concern of how cooperation across different groups is enabled, but also constrained, by the material and immaterial objects connecting them. As suc...

Renewable Energy (Volume I and II)

From a scientific point of view, several challenges to renewable energy come from the intermittent nature of energy sources such as wind, solar photovoltaic and solar thermal. These problems are currently being addressed with research on power electronics converters, storage systems, Artificial Intelligence techniques, new material...

The ICT Age

The world is at the cusp of yet another new era of computing as the physical and digital infrastructures of the world converge as we continue to infuse intelligence into more and more connected things. Many agree that this new era in computing is being driven by Cloud Computing, Big Data and the Internet of Things (IOT). This will ...

Engaged Learners and Digital Citizens

The world of higher education is entering a new phase in its history. Now, and in the coming decades, the ubiquitous role of digital technology will dramatically influence the manner in which teaching and learning are designed and delivered. This book encourages faculty to adopt a proactive stance in relation to technology through ...

Birthing the Computer

Birthing the Computer: From Relays to Vacuum Tubes is the first in a multi-volume series on historical computing machines. This series will span the development of computer systems from the Zuse machines of the early 1930s to about 1995 when microprocessors began to be commoditized. Each volume will focus on a range of technologies...
