VISIONAIR WP-11 Presentation VISIONAIR GA, Twente 28.02.12 Detailed research program – Conceptual Modelling WP-11 Presentation VISIONAIR GA, Twente 28.02.12 Prof. Dov Dori Prof. Yehudit Judy Dori 1
VISIONAIR WP 11 2 Type of activity: RTD Work package title: Conceptual Modeling, Assessment, Metaphors and Social Impact Start month: 7 End month: 48 WP11 is concerned with human-centered aspects of visualization. These are of paramount importance since the ultimate intended beneficiary of the visualization technologies is the human user both as an individual and a group of humans as a collaborative entity.
VISIONAIR 4 Objectives Development of paradigms and environments that visualize OPM-based conceptual models and enable their dynamic execution. Development and implementation of assessment techniques for visualization on effectiveness of higher-order thinking skills and E-learning. Research on visualization-related metaphors, ergonomics, usage, and social impact. Development and assessment of advanced visualization applications for collaboration. Development and assessment of scientific applications in chemistry, biology, and medicine, including cell-level biological processes.
VISIONAIR 5 Objectives WP11 aims to “help humans harness the developed visualization technologies to improve holistic system comprehension and the ability to visualize man-made as well as natural systems.” The above objectives will facilitate access to visitors. Better understanding of usage of visualisation technologies shall be formalised and modelled. The deployment of these models over the infrastructure will enhance the capacity of the installations to be adapted to new usages expected by the guest researchers.

Several conceptual modelling frameworks could be used. Specifically, Object Process Methodology (OPM), developed by Technion, is a prime candidate for this purpose. The outcome of the model will provide a solid basis for a new visualization service offered by VISIONAIR.

VISIONAIR 9 Action A11.1: Modeling user engagement with Visionair Action A11.1 is aimed at modelling the process of external users' engagement with the Visionair consortium as they wish to access resources and conduct their scientific experiments. This process will be modelled using OPCAT – the OPM CASE tool – to provide an accurate description of various stages and procedures that external users should follow in order to achieve optimal results from the Visionair infrastructure. This action will gather and combine results from other actions to formalize the relationships among different views in the multi-view model. The resulting OPM model will enrich the process view of the multiple-view model by refining components list and the components’ characteristics.

VISIONAIR 10 Proposal Investigate the capacity of OPM to describe the process. A Web service will help to trace the process for every guest project starting when the project is accepted and following the project up to its termination and assessment. Special attention will be given to identify indicators for analysing the quality of the process throughout its execution. A post (final) questionnaire filled by the guest will serve to provide vital complementary information which will be compared with the pre-questionnaire filled by the guest prior to the visit. Collect indicators that will serve to analyse the quality of the process throughout its execution (cf. 11.4 for collaboration matters).
VISIONAIR 11 State of the art OPM (Dori 2002) is defined formally and OPCAT software is available to all VISIONAIR partners as a conceptual modeling platform. OPM is in advanced stages of being adopted by ISO as a standard conceptual modelling language (Dori et al., 2010; see Action A11.5). We have developed and are refining Vivid OPM, which enables visualizing the OPM conceptual model. We specialize in design of pre- and post-questionnaires as a basis for assessment of the visit quality and benefit. The multi-view model (Tichkiewitch & Véron, 1997) which has been initially developed for product modelling can be challenged for service modelling. Overall, OPM will be the integrating underlying modelling approach as it is capable of integrating the various model views at different abstraction levels.
VISIONAIR 12 Action 11.2: User requirements and expectations capture (lead: UTWENTE) Provide an interactive tool for users to define their requirements and expectations from the Visionair project. This requirement can be better understood by the Visionair service providers and used by the e-map (in Action 11,2) to map requirements to possible Visionair infrastructure installations. Involved partners UTwente : R.G.J. Damgrave, W. Dankers, H.M. Schuurman-Hemmer
VISIONAIR 13 Action A11.3: Mapping user requirements to Visionair resources through enhancement of the resource e-map Develop a Recommendation Tool: A tool that can suggest the most appropriate combination of Visionair infrastructure services that best fulfils the user requirements and expectations. This will be done by extending and evolving the Visionair resource E-map. Involved partners LMS-UniPatras
VISIONAIR 14 A11.4: A Framework for modelling and assessing collaboration process within Visionair Model and assess collaboration between external users and Visionair service providers. Investigate cooperation, coordination, communication and interoperability issues. Offer continuous enhancements of the collaboration experience between external users and the Visionair infrastructure providers and within the Visionair community. Result of this action will involve: refinement and characterization of the components for the collaboration view of the multi-view model definition of indicators and metrics for assessment of the collaboration process providing means for driving the user engagement process according to a strategy that still has to be defined. Involved partners Grenoble-INP, Salford, ECN, UNI PETRAS, TECHNION
VISIONAIR 15 Action A11.5: Conceptual Model for four visualization applications Create conceptual models of four distinct visualization related applications. Model a range of collaboration and advanced visualisation scenarios using OPM Demonstrate how complex phenomena could be modelled to guide application developments while considering multi-faceted requirements. Analyse and model the multi-functional team and organisational contexts with the view to informing the development of collaborative systems in realistic working conditions. Five sub-actions are described below.
VISIONAIR 16 Simulation and animation of moon landing and mineral mining: The NASA SISO Smackdown project State of the art Modeling and simulation is a critical tool in both science and engineering. Unfortunately, programs that provide strong educational background in modeling and simulation are rare. The SISO Simulation Smackdown project is an international effort to promote better awareness and understanding of both the importance and the complexity of modern modeling and simulation through hands-on mentoring and participation with modeling and simulation practitioners.SISO Simulation Smackdown project Involved partners Technion: Prof. Dov Dori, Sergey Bolshchikov NASA: David Howes (ret.) Agenda Use Vivid OPM to animate the simulation. Possibly develop interface between OPM-OPCAT and HLA to enable model-driven simulation.
