Bareboat and Charter (Ship) Registration

  • Categories: Law

This exhaustive book deals with the most important phenomenon in the evolution and development of international ship registration: organisation and management. Bareboat charters, a system of leasing in which a person takes over a vessel for a limited time in return for a payment to the shipowner, have become especially popular in the 1980s and 1990s. Yet only the odd article or pamphlet has emerged in this vital area; no comparable publication exists. The uncertainties in this area demand a practical resource. National legislation is not synchronised. The distinction between bareboat charters and flags of convenience remains unclear. These blurred lines and others can have dramatic results, ...

Biomedical Image Registration

This book constitutes the thoroughly refereed post-proceedings of the Third International Workshop on Biomedical Image Registration, WBIR 2006, held in Utrecht, The Netherlands, in July 2006.The 20 revised full papers and 18 revised poster papers presented were carefully reviewed and selected for inclusion in the book. The papers cover all areas of biomedical image registration; methods of registration, biomedical applications, and validation of registration. Topics addressed are measures of similarity, 2D/3D/4D, nonrigid deformation, intra- or inter-modality registration, intra- or inter-subject registration, optimization methods, model-based registration, computer integrated surgery, image-guided therapy and diagnosis, treatment planning, serial studies, morphometry, biomechanics, image retrieval, image tiling and image fusion, computational and empirical accuracy, comparison studies, and physical models.

Voter Registration in Focus

One of the hallmarks of American democracy is the right to vote. In fact, the freedom to vote is so ingrained in American culture that it is taken for granted. Each election shows increasingly decreasing voter turnout and a decline in eligible voters registering. This can be partially attributed to a general antipathy toward the political process and partisan debates. However, there is no legitimate excuse for not availing oneself of the precious freedom to cast a ballot and have a say in the direction of the nation. With the increasing attention given to autocratic regimes across the globe and the restrictions placed on individual freedoms, it is amazing that the right to vote is not more a...

State Voter Registration Databases

The Help America Vote Act of 2002 requires the states to develop a single, computerized voter registration data base (VRD) that is defined, maintained, and administered at the state level. To help the states with this task, the U.S. Election Assistance Commission asked the NRC to organize a series of workshops and prepare an interim report addressing the challenges in implementing and maintaining state VRDs. The EAC also asked the NRC to advise the states on how to evolve and maintain the databases so that they can share information with each other. This report provides an examination of various challenges to the deployment of state VRDs and describes potential solutions to these challenges. This interim report's primary focus is on shorter-term recommendations although a number of long-range recommendations are presented. The final report will elaborate on the long-range questions and address considerations about interstate interoperability of the VRDs.

Multi Modality State-of-the-Art Medical Image Segmentation and Registration Methodologies

With the advances in image guided surgery for cancer treatment, the role of image segmentation and registration has become very critical. The central engine of any image guided surgery product is its ability to quantify the organ or segment the organ whether it is a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and computed tomography (CT), X-ray, PET, SPECT, Ultrasound, and Molecular imaging modality. Sophisticated segmentation algorithms can help the physicians delineate better the anatomical structures present in the input images, enhance the accuracy of medical diagnosis and facilitate the best treatment planning system designs. The focus of this book in towards the state of the art techniques in the area of image segmentation and registration.

Mathematical Models for Registration and Applications to Medical Imaging

This volume gives a survey on mathematical and computational methods in image registration. During the last year sophisticated numerical models for registration and efficient numerical methods have been proposed. Many of them are contained in this volume. The book also summarizes the state-of-the-art in mathematical and computational methods in image registration. In addition, it covers some practical applications and new directions with industrial relevance in data processing.

This book is the standard reference manual of cancer registration methodology and uses. It provides guidelines on all aspects, such as the establishment of a registry, collection, coding, verification and analysis of data, and the uses to which cancer registry data may be put. Emphasis is on population-based registration, which provides information on a defined population and permits calculation of incidence rates. Such registries are useful in cancer epidemiology (identification of possible aetiological factors), in planning future health services, and in monitoring the effectiveness of cancer prevention and treatment.
