OnQ: an authoring tool for dynamic online surveys

R.P. Pargas, J.C. Witte, L. Brand, C. Hochrine, M. Staton
Proceedings ITCC 2003. International Conference on Information Technology: Coding and Computing  
A survey authoring tool called OnQ makes the creation and deployment of web surveys intuitive and efficient, providing tools and features that commercially available survey authoring tools do not.  ...  This paper gives an overview of OnQ, provides details about each of its four main components, and describes currently active surveys produced by OnQ.  ...  Acknowledgements Support for this work has been provided by the National Science Foundation (NSF-ITR/Soc (Award # 0082750), the Clemson University Office of Access and Equity, the United Way of Greenville  ...

A Novel Impairment Aware RWA Algorithm With Consideration of QoT Estimation Inaccuracy

Siamak Azodolmolky, Yvan Pointurier, Marianna Angelou, Davide Careglio, Josep Solé-Pareta, Ioannis Tomkos
2011 Journal of Optical Communications and Networking  
In addition we show that accounting for QoT estimation inaccuracy changes the performance of the proposed IA-RWA substantially, and hence that the QoT estimator inaccuracy is an important design parameter  ...  In all-optical networks the physical layer impairments accumulate along a lightpath and also vary dynamically, and a number of impairment aware routing and wavelength assignment (IA-RWA) techniques have  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENTS The authors would like to thank Dr. Matthias Gunkel from Deutsche Telekom for providing the generic DT network topology, and the reviewers for their constructive comments.  ...

Practical Model Predictive Control for a Class of Nonlinear Systems Using Linear Parameter-Varying Representations

Hossam S. Abbas, Pablo S. G. Cisneros, Georg Mannel, Philipp Rostalski, Herbert Werner
2021 IEEE Access  
Owing to the linear parameter-varying (LPV) formulation of the associated nonlinear dynamics, the online MPC optimization problem is solvable as a single quadratic programming (QP) problem of complexity  ...  Therefore, the online optimization problem is solved for only the nominal system corresponding to the current value of the scheduling parameter and subject to tightened constraint sets.  ...  community since the late 1990s, see [8] - [11] and the recent survey in [12] .  ...

Estimating the Speed of Adjustment of Leverage in the Presence of Interactive Effects*

Joakim Westerlund, Hande Karabiyik, Paresh Kumar Narayan, Seema Narayan
2021 Journal of Financial Econometrics  
Dynamic panel data regression models with fixed effects to account for unobserved heterogeneity are standard econometric tools.  ...  Our empirical results suggest that proper accounting for the interactive effects and the bias that they cause leads to a marked increase in the estimated speed of adjustment to target leverage.  ...  The authors therefore only include firm-decade interactions.  ...
