Compiler to author: A process for designing rhetorically aware document collections

Melanie Feinberg
2011 Journal of the American Society for Information Science and Technology  
Over the course of a semester, sixteen participants used the design process both as individuals and in teams to create rhetorically aware document collections.  ...  Following principles of design research, the process was developed via the creation of two prototype collections. The process was then implemented in a classroom setting.  ...  In this activity, the designer synthesizes the ideas generated from the Envisioning, Learning, and Strategizing activities by sketching possibilities for what the authored collection experience might constitute  ...

Sensor Deception Attacks Against Initial-State Privacy in Supervisory Control Systems [article]

Jingshi Yao, Xiang Yin, Shaoyuan Li
2022 arXiv   pre-print
This structure serves as a basis for synthesizing a sensor attack strategy.  ...  Specifically, we consider an active attacker that can tamper with the observations received by the supervisor by, e.g., hacking on the communication channel between the sensors and the supervisor.  ...  To synthesize a deterministic attack strategy, the single attacker structure (SAS) is defined, which is a sub-system of the SAAS such that each attack state only has no more than one active event.  ...
