    Research-practice interaction: Building bridges, closing the gap

    No full text
    Previous work in the CHI community has identified and explored gaps between theory and practice in HCI research [2]. The recently formed SIGCHI Community on Research-Practice Interaction aims to help bridge the gap between research and practice, by for example supporting practitioner-­friendly dissemination of results, and serving as a conduit for feedback from practitioners to researchers. This SIG is an opportunity for interested CHI attendees to meet members of the SIGCHI RPI community, and engage in discussions on RPI issues including the CHI format, dissemination of results, and supporting practice-based research

    A disciplinary analysis of Internet Science

    No full text
    Internet Science is an interdisciplinary field. Motivated by the unforeseen scale and impact of the Internet, it addresses Internet-related research questions in a holistic manner, incorporating epistemologies from a broad set of disciplines. Nonetheless, there is little empirical evidence of the levels of disciplinary representation within this field.This paper describes an analysis of the presence of different disciplines in Internet Science based on techniques from Natural Language Processing and network analysis. Key terms from Internet Science are identified, as are nine application contexts. The results are compared with a disciplinary analysis of Web Science, showing a surprisingly low amount of overlap between these two related fields. A practical use of the results within Internet Science is described. Finally, next steps are presented that will consolidate the analysis regarding representation of less technologically-oriented disciplines within Internet Science

    Objective:A quarter of Australian children are overweight or obese. Research conducted in 2010 found that fast-food children\u27s meals were energy-dense and nutrient-poor. Since then, menu labelling and self-regulation of marketing have been introduced in Australia. The present study aimed to: (i) investigate the nutrient composition of children\u27s meals offered at fast-food chains; (ii) compare these with children\u27s daily requirements and recommendations and the food industry\u27s own criteria for healthier children\u27s meals; and (iii) determine whether results have changed since last investigated in 2010.Design:An audit of nutrition information for fast-food children\u27s meals was conducted. Meals were compared with 30 % (recommended contribution for a meal) and 100 % of children\u27s daily recommendations and requirements. A comparative analysis was conducted to determine if the proportion of meals that exceeded meal requirements and recommendations, and compliance with the food industry\u27s own criteria, changed between 2010 and 2016.Setting:Large Australian fast-food chains.Participants:All possible children\u27s meal combinations.Results:Overall, 289 children\u27s meals were included. Most exceeded 30 % of daily recommendations and requirements for a 4-year-old\u27s energy, saturated fat, sugars and Na. Results were also substantial for 8- and 13-year-olds, particularly for Na. When compared with mean energy and nutrient contents from 2010, there were minimal changes overall.Conclusions:Children\u27s meals can provide excess energy, saturated fat, sugar and Na to children\u27s diets. Systematic reformulation of energy, saturated fat, sugars and Na would improve the nutrient composition of the meals
