Recent Submissions

  • Obese Yeast Result from Uncontrolled Gpt2 Activity 

    Cardenas Rivas, Anabel (University of Calgary, Science, Biological Sciences, University of Calgary, 2018-09-21)
  • Beyond the Physical: Examining Scale and Annotation in Virtual Reality Visualizations 

    Ulusoy, Teoman; Danyluk, Kurtis Thorvald; Willett, Wesley J. (Department of Computer Science, University of Calgary, Science, Computer Science, University of Calgary, 2018-10-10)
    We examine how viewers in virtual reality (VR) environments interact with simple data visualizations at scales ranging from hand-sized to room-sized. We also explore how the addition of virtual annotation and filtering ...
  • Look-From Camera Control for 3D Terrain Maps 

    Danyluk, Kurtis Thorvald; Jenny, Bernhard; Willett, Wesley J. (University of Calgary, Science, Computer Science, University of Calgary, Monash University, 2018-10)
    We introduce three lightweight interactive camera control techniques for 3D terrain maps on touch devices based on a look-from metaphor (Discrete Look-From-At, Continuous Look-From-Forward, and Continuous Look-From-Towards). ...
  • Mapping the Current Understanding of Text Input within Virtual and Augmented Reality Environments 

    Vi, Steven (University of Calgary, Science, Computer Science, 2018-09-26)
    Text input is a vital part of how people interact with technology. With the emergence of augmented and virtual reality platforms, we see the adoption of new interaction devices and techniques that move away from traditional ...
  • A comparison of inhomogeneous magnetization transfer, myelin volume fraction, and diffusion tensor imaging measures in healthy children 

    Geeraert, Bryce L.; Lebel, Robert Marc; Mah, Alyssa C.; Deoni, Sean C. L.; Alsop, David C.; Varma, Gopal; Lebel, Catherine A. (Science, University of Calgary, 2017-09-12)
    Sensitive and specific biomarkers of myelin can help define baseline brain health and development, identify and monitor disease pathology, and evaluate response to treatment where myelin content is affected. Diffusion ...
  • You say Potato, I say Po-Data: Physical Template Tools for Visualization Authoring 

    Wun, Tiffany; Oehlberg, Lora A.; Sturdee, Miriam; Carpendale, Sheelagh (Department of Computer Science, University of Calgary, Science, Computer Science, University of Calgary, Pre-print, 2018-08-31)
    Providing data visualization authoring tools for the general public remains an ongoing challenge. Inspired by block-printing, we explore how visualization stamps as a physical visualization authoring tool could leverage ...
  • Astral: Prototyping Mobile and IoT Interactive Behaviours via Streaming and Input Remapping 

    Ledo, David; Vermeulen, Jo; Carpendale, Sheelagh; Greenberg, Saul; Oehlberg, Lora A.; Boring, Sebastian (Science, Computer Science, University of Calgary, Aarhus University, University of Copenhagen, 2018-07)
    We present Astral, a prototyping tool for mobile and Internet of Things interactive behaviours that streams selected desktop display contents onto mobile devices (smartphones and smartwatches) and remaps mobile sensor data ...
  • Quantification of peroxynitric acid and peroxyacyl nitrates using an ethane-based thermal dissociation peroxy radical chemical amplification cavity ring-down spectrometer 

    Taha, Youssef M.; Saowapon, Matthew T.; Assad, Faisal V.; Ye, Connie Z.; Chen, Xining; Garner, Natasha M.; Osthoff, Hans D. (Copernicus, Science, Chemistry, University of Calgary,, 2018-07-17)
    Peroxy and peroxyacyl nitrates (PNs and PANs) are important trace gas constituents of the troposphere which are challenging to quantify by differential thermal dissociation with NO2 detection in polluted (i.e., high-NOx) ...
  • Low levels of nitryl chloride at ground level: Nocturnal nitrogen oxides in the Lower Fraser Valley of British Columbia 

    Osthoff, Hans D.; Odame-Ankrah, Charles A.; Taha, Youssef M.; Tokarek, Travis W.; Schiller, Corinne L.; Haga, Donna; Jones, Keith H.; Vingarzan, Roxanne (Copernicus, Science, Chemistry, University of Calgary, Applied Science Division, Prediction and Services West, Meteorological Service of Canada, Environment and Climate Change Canada, Vancouver, British Columbia V6C 3S5, Canada, British Columbia Ministry of Environment and Climate Change Strategy, Cranbrook, British Columbia V1C 7G5, Canada,, 2018-05-04)
    The nocturnal nitrogen oxides, which include the nitrate radical (NO3), dinitrogen pentoxide (N2O5), and its uptake product on chloride containing aerosol, nitryl chloride (ClNO2), can have profound impacts on the lifetime ...
  • Chiral Separations Using a Modified Water Stationary Phase in Supercritical fluid Chromatography 

    Frantz, Jackson J.; Thurbide, Kevin B. (Springer, Science, Chemistry, University of Calgary,, Post-print, 2018-07-03)
    A novel means of achieving chiral separations in supercritical fluid chromatography (SFC) using a water stationary phase is presented. By adding various chiral selectors to the phase, different chiral analytes can be readily ...
