  • Doody, Owen; Slevin, Eamonn; Taggart, Laurence (Mark Allen Healthcare, 2012)
    Focus groups are used by researchers in the social and behavioural sciences to explore phenomena and are accepted as a legitimate qualitative methodology. The primary goal of focus groups is to use interaction data resulting ...
  • Doody, Owen; Slevin, Eamonn; Taggart, Laurence (Mark Allen Healthcare, 2013)
    The use of focus group interviews as a means of qualitative data collection has gained popularity in health service research in recent years. Despite their popularity, analysing qualitative data—particularly focus-group ...
  • Reid, M; Pomeroy, M.J; Vokal, V; Tanner, D.A (Maney Publishing, 2005)
    Discs of (pure nickel 15 mm diameter and 4 nun thickness) have been polished to a 1 mu m finish, aluminised using a standard pack CVD process to give a beta-NiAl coating and then the surface of this coating polished to a ...
  • Arshak, Khalil; Mihov, Miroslav; Arshak, Arousian; McDonagh, Declan; Sutton, D (IEEE Computer Society, 2004)
    Focused Ion Beam (FIB) lithography has significant advantages over the electron beam counterpart in terms of resist sensitivity, backscattering and proximity effects. Applying the Top Surface Imaging (TSI) principal to ...
  • Cox, Sara; Hitchings, Graham (IEEE Computer Society, 1992)
    Through a number of "participative learning" exercises, it may be demonstrated that the human brain can be very predictable in its modus operandii. This is an excellent attribute when considered as a conditioned response ...

  • Asplund, Mikael; Manzoor, Atif; Bouroche, Mélanie; Clarke, Siobhán; Cahill, Vinny (Springer, 2012)
    Increasing demands on safety and energy e ciency will re- quire higher levels of automation in transportation systems. This in- volves dealing with safety-critical distributed coordination. In this paper we demonstrate ...
  • Janota, Mikolas; Botterweck, Goetz (2008)
    If we model a family of software applications with a feature model and an architecture model, we are describing the same subject from different perspectives. Hence, we are running the risk of inconsistencies. For instance, ...
  • Espinoza, Angelina; Botterweck, Goetz; Garbajosa, Juan (Association for Computing Machinery, 2010)
    Software Product Line (SPL) Engineering has to deal with interrelated, complex models such as feature and architecture models, hence traceability is fundamental to keep them consistent. Commonly, a traceability schema must ...
  • Vassev, Emil; Hinchey, Mike; Nixon, Paddy (IEEE Computer Society, 2010)
    Intelligent swarms draw their inspiration from biology where many simple entities act independently, but when grouped, they appear to be highly organized. NASA is currently investigating swarm-based technologies for the ...
  • Bresciani, Riccardo; Butterfield, Andrew (IEEE Computer Society, 2009)
    When some agents want to communicate through a media stream (for example voice or video), the Real Time Protocol (RTP) is used. This protocol does not provide encryption, so it is necessary to use Secure RTP (SRTP) to ...
  • Black, Sue; Boca, Paul P.; Bowen, Jonathan P.; Gorman, Jason; Hinchey, Mike (IEEE Computer Society, 2009)
    The potential for combining agile and formal methods holds promise. Although it might not always be an easy partnership, it will succeed if it can foster a fruitful interchange of expertise between the two communities.
  • Fitzgerald, Brian (Blackwell Publishing, 1996)
    Systems development issues occupy a position of central importance in the information systems field and, indeed, much has been prescribed in the quest for successful systems development. However, given the well-documented ...
  • Popescu, Razvan; Staikopoulos, Athanasios; Brogi, Antonio; Liu, Peng; Clarke, Siobhán (Association for Computing Machinery, 2012)
    Advances in pervasive technology have made it possible to consider large-scale application types that potentially span heterogeneous organisations, technologies and device types. This class of application will have a ...
  • Kiniry, Joseph R. (IEEE Computer Society, 2007)
    In this extended abstract we summarize our consulting work, scientific research, and activism in the topic of electronic (computer-based) voting. The Dutch and Irish government’s activities are our particular focus, as ...
  • Armstrong, Gordon; Thornton, Roibeard F; Ryan, Michael P; Laffir, Fathima R.; Russell, Ronald J; Bala, Tanushree; Keely, Christopher; Babu, Rameesh (Springer-Verlag, 2012)
    Current interest in antimicrobial coatings is driven by an urgent need for more effective strategies to control microbial infection. In this study, antimicrobial nanoclays were prepared by ion-exchange of sodium montmorillonite ...
  • NicGhabhann, Niamh (Graphic Studio Dublin, 2013)

  • Arshak, Khalil; Jafer, Essa; Ibala, Christian Serge (IEEE Computer Society, 2007)
    The aim of this study is to design and develop a wireless sensor system integrating 24 bits analog to digital converter (ADC) and long range RF transceiver unit. The system is reading from two types of sensors, pressure ...
  • Feller, Joseph; Fitzgerald, Brian (Association for Computing Machinery, 2000)
    Open Source Software (OSS) has become the subject of much commercial interest of late. Certainly, OSS seems to hold much promise in addressing the core issues of the software crisis, namely that of software taking too long ...
  • Ahmad, Aakash; Jamshidi, Pooyan; Pahl, Claus (Association for Computing Machinery, 2013)
    Software systems continuously evolve as a consequence of frequent changes in their functional requirements and the environment surrounding them. Architecture-centric software evolution (ACSE) enables changes in software ...
