OPM  
This is a Special Interest Group (SIG) for anyone interested in Object-Process Methodology (OPM) which is a compact conceptual approach, language, and methodology for modelling and knowledge representation of automation systems. The application of OPM ranges from simple assemblies of elemental components to complex, multidisciplinary, dynamic systems. OPM has been adopted by the International Organization for Standardization, ISO, and on December 7, 2015 it was published as a normative ISO 19450 document at https://www.iso.org/obp/ui/#iso:std:iso:pas:19450:ed-1:v1:en. Over the past two decades, Prof. Dov Dori of the Faculty of Industrial Engineering and Management at the Technion has been developing Object-Process Methodology (OPM) as a language and method for conceptual modeling of complex systems of any kind, be it artificial or natural. An OPM model expresses both graphically and textually the architecture of the system: Interconnected diagrams at varying levels of detail, from a bird's eye view to any desired number of "nuts and bolts" views, specify any conceptual and logical aspect of the system. Each graphic expression is translated on the fly to a corresponding textual specification in a plain subset of English. A basic premise underlying OPM is that one can build a model of any system in any domain and at any level of complexity with the most minimal set of building blocks: stateful objects (objects with states) and processes that create or consume objects, or change their states. Over the last decade, Technion students at the Enterprise Systems Modeling Laboratory developed OPCAT (Object-Process CASE Tool), a software package that is available freely from the Lab's website http://esml.iem.technion.ac.il/ and translates the user's graphic input into simple English in real time. This enables quick model development jointly by the customer and the system architects and engineers, and reliable verification of the model as it is being created. The SIG is managed by Dr Pathmeswaran Raju of Cranfield University, UK.

PASS  
This is an interdisciplinary network for researchers interested in software programming both as a research device and an object of study, particularly around the methodological innovations happening through social science usages of digital data. It aims to support the cultivation of "critical technical practice" (Agre, 1997) around the research, development and use of code - informed by developments in digital methods, digital sociology and emerging teaching formats. PaSS draws on research in Science and Technology Studies, New Media Studies, Software Studies, Ethnomethodology, Human-Computer Interaction and associated fields to look at how programming practices can not just be studied, but also critically leveraged for teaching and research. The PaSS mailing list is a low traffic list for news, announcements and discussion around programming in the context of social research. <HTML> This is an interdisciplinary network for researchers interested in software programming both as a research device and an object of study, particularly around the methodological innovations happening through social science usages of digital data.

PSYCH-R  
This list has been retained 01/09/2015 No one can subscribe to this list and no one can post to this list. contact helpline@jiscmail.ac.uk for all enquiries regarding this list The Psych-R list is an open email list for peer-support among people using R for work in the psychological arena. R (http://www.r-project.org) is a free language and environment for statistics which is being used increasingly worldwide. The system comprises a core program and support modules and a base set of packages that extend this. On top of this are an enormous set of packages for specialist statistical techniques or application areas including the Bioconductor project (http://www.bioconductor.org/) focused on genetic and related research. There are a number of packages for psychometric and other techniques often used in the psychological arena (http://cran.r-project.org/web/views/Psychometrics.html). However, most of the packages have been written on low or near zero budgets and so are documented from the perspective of the expert who wrote the code. This can be inscrutable at worst, or not very helpful for relative newcomers at best, and creates a need for others to write supporting documentation or help the package maintainer provide documentation that helps a wider user base. Similarly, there is a real need for a mutual support system in the spirit of the R project's open source social organisation. For general R issues and for development of R this is provided by the R-help (http://stat.ethz.ch/mailman/listinfo/r-help) and R-dev (http://stat.ethz.ch/mailman/listinfo/r-devel) email lists but R-help can be overwhelming in its activity and range of subjects and expertise and there seems to be a need for complementary support lists such as psych-R. Joining the list is an undertaking to abide by the general rules for all JISCmail lists (http://www.jiscmail.ac.uk/help/policy) AND the specifics for Psych-R which are simple: 1) postings should be on topic, 2) the aim is non-commercial, so any postings about commercial courses, training, consultation etc. should be absolutely specific to the use of R in the psychological arena and not excessive, members posting such topics are strongly encouraged to show their commitment to the spirit and theme of the list by also posting other contributions, 3) the list language is English but be very respectful of the advantage you may have (and we as list owners have) if English is your first or a fluent language for you and help others for whom it is not a language of early fluency: these are often the people contributing most to the R project, 4) more generally, please keep all postings respectful: this doesn't exclude disagreement but this should be specific and to the topic, not against individuals, 5) humour is welcomed but beware that this introduces overloaded linguistic operators and interpersonal and social complexity that is often dangerous in Email lists between strangers: be quick to apologise or explain if humour goes awry or upsets others! <HTML> <p>The Psych-R list is an open email list for peer-support among people using R for work in the psychological arena.</p> <p><A href= "http://www.r-project.org">R</A> is a free language and environment for statistics which is being used increasingly worldwide.
