Safety Management Systems in Aviation
by Alan J. Stolzer, John J. Goglia

Although aviation is among the safest modes of transportation in the world today, accidents still happen. In order to further reduce accidents and improve safety, proactive approaches must be adopted by the aviation community. The International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) has mandated that all of its member states implement Safety Management System (SMS) programs in their aviation industries. While some countries (the United States, Australia, Canada, members of the European Union and New Zealand, for example) have been engaged in SMS for a few years, it is still non-existent in many other countries. This unique and comprehensive book has been designed as a textbook for the student of aviation safety, and as an invaluable reference tool for the SMS practitioner in any segment of aviation. It discusses the quality management underpinnings of SMS, the four components, risk management, reliability engineering, SMS implementation, and the scientific rigor that must be designed into proactive safety. The authors introduce a hypothetical airline-oriented safety scenario at the beginning of the book and conclude it at the end, engaging the reader and adding interest to the text. To enhance the practical application of the material, the book also features numerous SMS in Practice commentaries by some of the most respected names in aviation safety. In this second edition of Safety Management Systems in Aviation, the authors have extensively updated relevant sections to reflect developments since the original book of 2008. New sections include: a brief history of FAA initiatives to establish SMS, data-driven safety studies, developing a system description, SMS in a flight school, and measuring SMS effectiveness.

SMS and MMS Interworking in Mobile Networks
by A. Henry-Labordère, Vincent Jonack

SMS (short message service) and MMS (multimedia message service) are two of the hottest services in wireless communications today, offering customers exciting ways to communicate by sending text and multimedia messages. This comprehensive book offers wireless engineers and managers practical guidance in the planning and implementation of SMS and MMS services with interworking (the ability to successfully send a message when the origin and destination cellular phones do not use the same wireless operator). The book offers professionals various solutions to the common problem of number portability (a situation when a cellular phone has been “ported-out” to another operator while keeping the same number) and provides methods for blocking spam from inbound SMS. Including numerous solved examples, this authoritative reference helps practitioners master of the key concepts they need to understand for their work in the field.

Key Competencies in the Knowledge Society
by Nicolas Reynolds, Márta Turcsányi-Szabó

th It is fitting that there was a World Computer Congress in the 50 anniversary year of IFIP. Within the Learn IT Stream of WCC2010, the conference, Key Competencies in the Knowledge Society (KCKS), brought together some 43 papers from around the world covering many areas of ICT and its role in education. Of the papers presented here, three were selected as key theme papers for the KCKS conference. These papers’ by Adams and Tatnall, Tarragó and Wilson, Diethelm and Dörge, are included in these proceedings. We congratulate these authors for the quality of their work that led to selection. The range of issues covered within this volume is too broad to set out here but c- ers, amongst other things, e-examination, Twitter, teacher education, school-based learning, methodological frameworks and human development theories. It has been an exciting and rewarding task to put these papers together. They rep- sent a coming together of great minds and cutting-edge research. We thank our contributors and our reviewers for producing such an impressive body of work.

Mobile Messaging Technologies and Services
by Gwenaël Le Bodic

Building on the success of the first edition, Mobile MessagingTechnologies and Services offers extensive new and revisedmaterial based upon the latest research and industry developments.While early implementations targeted person-to-person messaging,MMS has now evolved to facilitate such requirements as the massdelivery of time-sensitive messages for content-to-personmessaging. This Second Edition exploits the technicalmaturity of MMS as it is poised to generate a wealth of newbusiness opportunities across the mobile communications sector. Theauthor provides the fundamental technical background required forSMS, EMS and MMS, and supports this with industry cutting-edgedevelopments.

● Contains a revised section on the fundamentals of MMS,including an updated section on GPRS to explain current commercialimplementations such as GRX applications.

● Presents the latest developments in MMS standardization,including the design of synchronized multimedia integrationlanguage (SMIL) presentations, Digital Rights Management (DRM),transcoding techniques, postcard service and support of advancedmultimedia formats.

● Describes the processes for standardizingtelecommunications services and technologies (3GPP, OMA, GSMAssociation, IETF and W3C).

● Provides updated sections on SMS, EMS and heavilyrevised coverage of the developments in MMS, including MMSinterworking and the forthcoming MMS version 1.3.

This resource will be invaluable for application developers,manufacturers, operators and content providers involved in thedesign and deployment of messaging services. It will also be ofinterest to practitioners involved in the process of standardizingtelecommunications services and technologies. Postgraduate studentsand researchers will benefit from having access to state-of-the-artfindings backed by numerous illustrative real-world examples.

Includes a companion website featuring information on relevantstandards, available phones and developers’ resources.


The Inside Text
by R. Harper, L. Palen, A. Taylor

SMS or Text is one of the most popular forms of messaging. Yet, despite its immense popularity, SMS has remained unexamined by science. Not only that, but the commercial organisations, who have been forced to offer SMS by a demanding public, have had very little idea why it has been successful. Indeed, they have, until very recently, planned to replace SMS with other messaging services such as MMS.

This book is the first to bring together scientific studies into the values that ‘texting’ provides, examining both cultural variation in countries as different as the Philippines and Germany, as well as the differences between SMS and other communications channels like Instant Messaging and the traditional letter. It presents usability and design research which explores how SMS will evolve and what is likely to be the pattern of person-to-person messaging in the future. In short, Inside Text is a fundamental resource for anyone interested in mobile communications at the start of the 21st Century

The book will be of interest to anyone in the CHI, CSCW and mobile communications research areas, as well as sociologists, anthropologists, communications scientists and policy makers.
