Ritrovato,P. Et al.(Eds.)
Volume 127 in the Frontiers in Artificial Intelligence and Applications Series.There is a paradigm shift in Informatics in general and in technologies enhancing human learning in particular. The debate between the "evolutionaries" - those that wish to optimize and refine current approaches - and the "revolutionaries" - those that support a fundamental change of approach - is quite actual. Within the Internet communities, the debate is hidden behind the words "semantic WEB" versus "semantic Grid"; within educational technologists between "content/resource centered" and "conversation centered" e-learning, or either between "teaching" and "pedagogy" on the one side, and "learning" and "communities of practice" on the other. In general, in Informatics, the shift from a product-page oriented to a service-conversation oriented view may possibly impact most if not all the foreseen applications, in e-learning, but also in e-science, e-democracy, e-commerce, e-health, etc. Part A of the book is dedicated to Position papers: visions about what to do and why to do it in the next years. The remaining parts (B to D) offer partial answers to "how" to do it. Part B concerns what we called: Content-centered services.239pp.

Edited By Arnaldi, Simone; Lorenzet, Andrea; Russo, Federica
Slight dent to front cover and fore edge of front board otherwise New. Nanotechnology seems to escape boundaries and definitions. The "Rush to Nanoscale" spreads throughout different sites and arenas, involving a multiplicity of actors, meanings and spaces in which they emerge. The 'uncertainty of nanotechnology' appears to be both a condition and a consequence of this situation. This volume adds to the collective effort of charting the multiple and heterogeneous dimensions that characterize nanotechnology, by analyzing the numerous modalities through which different stakeholders and actors provide definitions, attribute meaning and sense to nanoenabled innovations. The chapters of the book attempt to highlight how nanotechnologies, their discourse, and their actual and potential implications cannot be isolated in laboratories, factories, markets and separate discussion arenas. Also, the volume examines how it is apparently not possible to bind and/or confine the definition of nanotechnology by referring exclusively to present-day research and applications, as well as to geographical, cultural and even disciplinary boundaries. Considered together, this collection of essays suggests that the 'societal experiment' of nanotechnology has to be explored with a vocabulary that is not just scientific and technical, in order to cross the frontiers between multiple domains, actors, identities, translations and negotiation processes that occur in the nanotechnology field. 143pp.
