Medical Informatics applied in psoriasis diagnosis and management

Abstract

Psoriasis represents a chronic disease, with a prevalence of 0.91% to 8.5% worldwide. The clinical manifestations of the disease vary a lot from patient to patient and the response to treatment also varies a lot.

Today, in spite of the drawbacks it has, PASI (Psoriasis Area Severity Index) represents one of the best tools used to evaluate the extent of the disease and the response to medication.

One of the drawbacks of using this scoring system is considered to be the way a doctor has to calculate the result. In this study we offer, step by step, a possible solution to create an informatics tool that can offer the result of the score based on the inputs made by the doctor.

Inquiry Based Education of Selected Informatics Topics – Analysis and Results

Abstract

In the paper we present the partial results of a qualitative research achieved in the project Innovation efficiency methods of teaching mathematics, physics and informatics (VEMIV). The project is aimed at developing inquiry skills of pupils and conceptual comprehension of the subject matter. In the first part we describe basic characteristics of inquiry-based education. In the second part we present two methodologies of teaching informatics. The first methodology is primarily focused on scientific research methods viable in school informatics. In the second one, we focus primarily on the content of school informatics. The methodologies were implemented and commented by teachers from partner grammar schools. At the end of both methodologies we summarize and analyze the results of inquiry-based education according to the presented methodologies. Our findings are supported by the results of pupils’ works, the results of concepTest and evaluation feedback from teachers. In conclusion, we present recommendations for the implementation and evaluation of inquirybased informatics education.

Piif – Romanian Fluid Engineering Informatics Platform

Abstract

This paper presents the collaborative work that, the fluid mechanics, hydraulics or hydraulic machineries departments, from 6 Romanian universities, have put together in order to build up a web based platform to be used, by students as well as by teachers, in the study of fluid engineering. The different components of the platform are presented and discussions are made on the main problems that appeared in the creation process of the PiiF (PiiF stands for “Fluid Engineering Informatics Platform” which in Romanian is: “Platforma Informatica de Ingineria Fluidelor”) platform. Of course, adopted solutions to the problems are also explained thoroughly. We consider this project to be a good example on both: collaboration in engineering education and new innovative methods for engineering education.

Security of Communications and Informatics Systems within the Modern Battle Space

Abstract

A basic requirement for a modern communications system is the protection of the communications services provided and of the information transmitted through them. This consists of a set of security measures and procedures organized in accordance with the legal provisions in force within each military structure, for the protection of the stored, processed and transmitted information through communications and informatics systems against threats and actions/inactions that may affect their confidentiality, integrity, availability and authenticity or may affect the operation of communications and informatics systems. In these circumstances, the development of communications equipment and the growing integration of the related technical equipment is accompanied by the emergence of numerous means and processes whereby unauthorized access to classified information may be achieved, both by direct interception of the traffic - especially the one transmitted by electromagnetic waves and the unintended (parasite) radiation of the communications and computing equipment. Therefore, a secure communications system within the modern battle space cannot be concieved without technical equipment needed to protect classified information, mainly based on automatic encryption and on appropriate organizational measures
