    Improving reasoning in intelligence analysis is of vital national importance. The trackable reasoning and analysis for crowdsourcing and evaluation project takes a user-centered design approach combined with rigorous experimentation to ascertain effective structured techniques to support high-quality reasoning. Results suggest a light structure is more effective than a rigid structure. View full abstract»

    In this paper, I address several related questions about evidence: What is common to understanding across different fields like law, science, and medicine? Can we develop a unified perspective? Could this lead to new ways of analyzing practical issues and making complex decisions where there are competing viewpoints? A widely held position is that evidence is intrinsically associated with resolvin... View full abstract»

    This paper presents an approach to the automation of cybersecurity operations centers with cognitive assistants that capture and automatically apply the expertise employed by cybersecurity analysts when they investigate advanced persistent threats. The goal is to significantly increase the probability of detecting intrusion activity while drastically reducing the workload of the operators. View full abstract»

    Serverless computing is a new way of managing computations in the cloud. We show how it can be put to work for scientific data analysis. For this, we detail our serverless architecture for an application analyzing data from one of the instruments onboard the ESA Mars Express orbiter, and then, we compare it with a traditional server solution.

    Numerical modeling is a tool commonly used by both researchers and engineers. For several reasons, the quality of scientific codes frequently deprecates. One of the possible remedies is the application of advanced programming and software development methods. In this paper, we introduce the application of metaprogramming and generic programming in C++ to control the correctness of multiscale model... View full abstract»

    “A picture is worth a thousand words” is a famous English saying. It is true in many cases, because a complex idea or data can be simply conveyed through the use of a single static image or diagram. Therefore, inclusion of graphics and visualizations in scientific texts has been an important aspect ever since researchers started publishing articles. Conventional writing styles allow researchers to... View full abstract»

    The word “kiosk” is one of the few in the English language to come from Turkish. When I was a nipper in Wales, it connoted a roofed, gazebo-like structure that housed a tiny shop or booth. Now in the U.S. and elsewhere, it connotes a freestanding automatic service machine. View full abstract»

Aims & Scope

The computational and data-centric problems faced by scientists and engineers transcend disciplines. There is a need to share knowledge of algorithms, software, and architectures, and to transmit lessons-learned to a broad scientific audience. Computing in Science & Engineering (CiSE) is a cross-disciplinary, international publication that meets this need by presenting contributions of high interest and educational value from a variety of fields, including—but not limited to—physics, biology, chemistry, and astronomy. CiSE emphasizes innovative applications in advanced computing, simulation, and analytics, among other cutting-edge techniques. CiSE publishes peer-reviewed research articles, and also runs departments spanning news and analyses, topical reviews, tutorials, case studies, and more.
