The PRESS team build upon an extensive track record in delivery of highly successful research-oriented IT projects across a variety of disciplines. Wherever possible we build directly upon the results of these projects from a software perspective, but more importantly from a software engineering perspective to support the development and rollout of software solutions. We summarise the current portfolio of projects here and some of the previously completed projects involving the PRESS staff to give an idea of the depth and breadth of research-oriented IT that we build upon.

Metadata Management for Confidential Records
Metadata Management for Confidential Records

Metadata Management for Confidential Records is a project with Researchers in the School of Population Health focused on making unit record data more visible and accessible through a web-based platform.

Team Analytics with MGSE
Team Analytics with MGSE

Team Analytics with MGSE is a project with the Melbourne Graduate School of Education exploring how teams collaborate online to achieve specific goals. The work involves natural language processing of team chat and identification and classification of information used to achieve specific goals.

AthenaLite

AthenaLite is a commercial project funded by the Defence Science and Technology Organisation (DSTO) that runs to May 2020. The focus of this work is the development of a scheduling system for training and tracking of resource personnel required by the defence forces of Australia. This will provide an Australia-wide system that can support current and future training needs and demands of defence personnel in the army, navy and airforce.

SoL (Extension)
SoL (Extension)

Science of Learning (SoL) Extension has been funded by researchers in the Melbourne Graduate School of Education to enhance a web-based platform to support research into education and especially interventions that can improve educational outcomes.

SEMA3 (Extension)
SEMA3 (Extension)

SEMA3 – mobile application for social science surveys (extension) is a project to develop mobile applications and associated web application and back end database for delivery of survey instruments. This is a collaboration with researchers in the School of Psychological Sciences.

ARES
ARES

ARES is a commercial project funded by the Defence Science and Technology Organisation (DSTO) that runs to May 2020. The focus of this work is the enhancement of two previous systems (CAT/WASP) for training and tracking of resource personnel required by the defence forces of Australia. This will provide an Australia-wide system that can support current and future training needs and demands of defence personnel in the army, navy and airforce.

BetterBrains
BetterBrains

BetterBrains has been funded by NHMRC to establish a web based platform to address the hypothesis that a person-centred, multi-domain lifestyle intervention can slow cognitive decline over a 3-year follow-up period. This is a major collaboration lead by the Florey Institute and builds on projects such as ORCA.

Victorian Flu Surveillance (Extension)
Victorian Flu Surveillance (Extension)

Victorian Flu Surveillance Extension has been funded by the Doherty Institute at the University of Melbourne to enhance a platform support surveillance of flu outbreaks across Victoria. This system is to be used by GPs to record patients with flu and/or flu-like systems.

Suicide Tracking and Clustering through Social Media
Suicide Tracking and Clustering through Social Media

Suicide Tracking and Clustering through Social Media is project with researchers in the School of Population Health focused on identifying individuals on social media where the individuals have committed suicide. This requires access to large scale historic social media data with specific focus on Twitter

ADDN Phase 3 (Extension)
ADDN Phase 3 (Extension)

Australian Diabetes Data Network Phase 3 Extension (ADDN) has been extended by the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF). The project established the first Australia-wide paediatric and adult type-1 diabetes registry. This system includes data extracted from a range of major hospitals/diabetes centres across Australia and New Zealand.

ENDIA (Extension)
ENDIA (Extension)

Early environmental determinants of pancreatic islet autoimmunity: a pregnancy to early life cohort study in children at risk of type-1 diabetes (ENDIA) extension was funded by JDRF to establish an infrastructure for collecting information on pregnant women at risk of having children that go on to develop type-1 diabetes. This project extends the work for a further year.

PanelApp
PanelApp

PanelApp is a project that allows for the curation of gene lists by multiple users with the intent of unifying disease-associated gene lists (which ones to sequence for a given disease) as part of the support for national sequencing initiatives. This work is a collaboration with Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre researcher.

Supporting the School of Psychological Sciences (Extension)
Supporting the School of Psychological Sciences (Extension)

Supporting the School of Psychological Sciences (extension) has been funded to support the research-oriented IT needs of the School of Psychological Sciences at the University of Melbourne. This includes development of mobile applications and web applications/databases.

MOGA
MOGA

Multi-Objective Genetic Algorithm (MOGA) is a project to realise a web-based platform to support teaching and learning in the School of Engineering.

TRAKA
TRAKA

TRAKA is a project funded by Chancellery at the University of Melbourne. It focuses on development and delivery of a platform for tracking strategic commitments and expenditure of the Deputy Vice Chancellor Research in a range of projects and activities across the University.

CoCoCo
CoCoCo

CoCoCo is is both a language and a server designed to help social scientists (particularly social psychologists, cognitive psychologists, and economists) run large scale, near-real time experiments with fine-grained control over experimental logic without having to worry too much about concurrency, blocking, allocation, etc. This is a collaboration with researchers in the School of Psychological Sciences at the University of Melbourne.

Autonomous Resilient Agents
Autonomous Resilient Agents

Autonomous Resilient Agents is a project funded by the CSIRO and Agent-oriented Systems group as part of the Science and Industry Endowment Fund. It concerns the implementation of team-based distributed systems to support the deployment of robust and resilient autonomous systems. The field robotics environment is both dynamic and unpredictable where communications may be intermittent, and availability cannot be relied upon. Such systems should ideally work in a coordinated, team-based manner with vehicles or other sub-systems of varying capabilities that collectively work to achieve common goals. This project runs to May 2021.

Generic Athena
Generic Athena

Generic Athena is a commercial project funded by the Defence Science and Technology Organisation (DSTO) that runs to May 2020. The focus of this work is in extensions and refinements of a scheduling system for training and tracking of resource personnel required by the defence forces of Australia. This will provide an Australia-wide system that can support current and future training needs and demands of defence personnel in the army, navy and airforce. This work also includes support for mobile applications.

SCIS (Extension)
SCIS (Extension)

School of Computing and Information Systems Teaching and Learning Support (SCIS) extension is a project to extend a range of applications supporting the teaching and learning needs of the School of Computing and Information Systems. This includes mobile applications; web applications and back end databases.

RIGOR
RIGOR

Reproducibility assessment in IDEA Groups for Open Research (RIGOR) has been funded by the Defence Advance Research Platform Activities (DARPA) to explore the repeatability of science through an online collaborative platform. This is a large-scale collaboration with the School of Biosciences at the University of Melbourne.
