This is the first textbook and reference work on evaluation intended for event management andevent tourism. Drawing upon generic evaluation theory and methods, event and tourism researchand real-world experiences, the author provides concepts and tools needed for the establishment of a comprehensive evaluation system and the implementation of varied evaluation projects.The strength of this book lies in its emphasis on evaluation foundations, both theoretical andmethodological, enabling the student and practitioner to adapt the evaluation process to manysituations using:*A range of tools from simple checklists to more advanced logic models;*Specific chapters devoted to the most challenging evaluation contexts: the visitor and theirexperience, quality and human resources;*A chapter devoted to exploring different evaluation challenges in the full range of plannedevents, including the tourism dimension;*An introduction of impact assessment.The Events Management Theory and Methods Series examines the extent to which mainstream theory is being employed to develop event-specific theory, and to influence the very core practices of event management and event tourism. Each compact volume contains overviews of mainstream management theories and methods, examples from the events literature, case studies, and guidance on all aspects of planned-event management. They introduce the theory, show how it is being used in the events sector through a literature review, incorporate examples and case studies written by researchers and/or practitioners, and contain methods that can be used effectively in the real world. Series editor: Donald Getz.With online resource material, this mix-and-match collection is ideal for lecturers who need theoretical foundations and case studies for their classes, by students in need of reference works, by professionals wanting increased understanding alongside practical methods, and by agencies or associations that want their members and stakeholders to have access to a library of valuable resources.

This book on events-related research marks a watershed in the development of a "Nordic School" of festival and event research. Each of the chapters presents a new and interesting approach to the study of events, in terms of methods, perspectives or content. It is mostly rooted in management theory but also incorporating other perspectives that enhance our understanding of the phenomena. Implications for real-world applications in tourism, hospitality, and community development are also at the fore. The scholarship is comprehensive, not focused on only tourism or economic aspects. Management theory, including stakeholder management, social networks, and institutionalization processes is being applied. Attention is being given to the multiple roles festivals and events play in society, and to evaluation of their worth and impacts. Innovative methods are being developed to examine event experiences, innovation processes, and success factors. There is now a critical mass of scholars in the Nordic countries that share a strong interest in event studies, and they are engaged in collaborative research, making it an appealing and innovative region for other event students and researchers to visit. It can be expected that the Nordic school will take an increasingly important place in the development of event studies, which is now truly global in terms of scholarship and university degree programs. This book was originally published as a special issue of Scandinavian Journal of Hospitality and Tourism.

Tourism economics is a rapidly expanding field of research and interest in the subject has been growing steadily over the past decade. As a field of study it is one of the small band of areas, such as energy and transport economics, that draws on, and applies, developments in general economics. This highly accessible and comprehensive Handbook presents a cutting edge discussion of the state of tourism economics and its likely directions in future research. Leading researchers in the field explore a wide range of topics including: demand and forecasting, supply, transport, taxation and infrastructure, evaluation and application for policy-making. Each chapter includes a discussion of its relevance and importance to the tourism economics literature, an overview of its main contributions and themes, a critical evaluation of existing literature and an outline of issues for further conceptual and applied research. Larry Dwyer and Peter Forsyth have assembled a fascinating Handbook that will be an invaluable and much welcomed reference book for tourism economics scholars and researchers at all levels of academe. General economics scholars will also find much to engage them within the book.

The aim of politicians is to attract new investment to their city or region in order to develop infrastructure such as telecommunications, transportation, housing or even sport and entertainment facilities. Sporting events are also intended to achieve intangible ends such as a better image, more know-how, stronger networks, emotional commitment and additional cultural benefits and enhanced identity. All these so called ‘event structures’ can improve sites in a city/region by strengthening certain location factors. They may improve general living conditions in the longer term and also boost the income of citizens by attracting new businesses, tourists, conventions or new events. Finally they may foster economic growth at the city, regional or national level. This collection is of particular interest for anyone who intends to enter a bidding process for a major sporting event. It offers the host of an event a good introduction to the potential ways to generate economic benefits and will enhance understanding of the economics behind major sporting events. This book was previously published as a special issue of European Sport Management Quarterly

For over a decade the Army has been carrying out a program aimed at the destruction of accumulated chemical weapons stored at several sites. While destruction by incineration has been successful, several incidents -- called chemical events -- occurred during the disposal process or decontamination activities that raised some public concerns about the safety of operations of three third generation incineration facilities. As a result, the Congress asked the NRC to investigate whether the incidents provide information useful to help ensure safe operation of the future sites. This book presents an analysis of causes of and responses to past chemical events, implications of such events for ongoing and future demilitarization activities, and recommendations for preparing for future events.

This book has evolved from our deep interest and involvement in the development and application of reliability evaluation techniques. Its scope is not limited to anyone engineering discipline as the concepts and basic techniques for reliability evaluation have no disciplinary boundaries and are applicable in most, if not all, engineering applications. We firmly believe that reliability evaluation is an important and integral feature of the planning, design and operation of all engineering systems; from the smallest and most simple to the largest and most complex. Also, we believe that all engineers involved with such systems should be aware of, and appreciate, not only the benefits which can accrue from reliability assessment, but also how such assessments can be made. Our primary objective has been to compile a book which provides practising engineers and engineering graduates who have little or no background in probability theory or statistics, with the concepts and basic techniques for evaluating the reliability of engineering systems. It is hoped that the material presented will enable them to reach quickly a level of self-confidence which will permit them to assimilate, understand and appreciate the more detailed applications and additional material which is available in the journals and publications associated with their own discipline.

Inhaltsangabe:Abstract: Common Object Request Broker Architecture (CORBA), a standard from the Object Management Group (OMG), defines a vendor-independent architecture and infrastructure for distributed systems. Further CORBA species a client-server platform as well as an object-oriented programming model for distributed computing.The Object Request Broker (ORB) implements the part of CORBA which manages communication and data exchange between objects. CORBA-based applications often have to communicate with ORBs from different vendors. Therefore testing the interoperability is one important point in this work. Six actually available ORB implementations are shown and compared at given features. If a problem has to be solved with CORBA, it is necessary to choose the best ORB implementation for that purpose, because they differ often at significant points. Important details for decision are Standard Conformity, Robustness, Functionality as well as Functional Range or Interoperability. Exactly these properties are to be examined in this work. The investigation is performed on six, at the web available ORBs indeed Jacorb 1.4 beta 2, Orbacus 4.1.0, Orbix E2A 2.0, OpenORB 1.2.0, J2SE ORB 1.4.0 as well as TAO 1.2.1 all in their most actual released version. Additionally to these properties the correct implementation of the most important CORBA Services is checked. They are Event Service, Notification Service, Name Service and Transaction Service. The ORBs are compared at this given properties.It shows that the ORBs differ very much from each other and that the CORBA Services are often implemented incorrectly. Further a high costly implementation is no guarantee for best quality at all points. The evaluation shows that a freely available ORB can be as good as or better than a commercial one.
