  • Cahill, Vinny; Baker, Sean; Nixon, Paddy (IEEE Computer Society, 1997)
    peer-reviewed applications that cross the boundaries of different computing machines, operating systems, and programming languages are increasingly the norm. As a result, the need for what might be called “bridging ...
  • Keeney, John; Cahill, Vinny (IEEE Computer Society, 2003)
    We argue that the software user, the developer, the designer and indeed the application logic itself all possess invaluable intelligence to gear how software should adapt itself to changing requirements and changing ...
  • Dowling, Jim; Cunningham, Raymond; Curran, Eoin; Cahill, Vinny (IEEE Computer Society, 2004)
    This paper introduces Collaborative Reinforcement Learning (CRL), a coordination model for solving system-wide optimisation problems in distributed systems where there is no support for global state. In CRL the autonomic ...
  • Louboutin, Sylvain R.Y.; Cahill, Vinny (IEEE Computer Society, 1997)
    Comprehensive distributed garbage collection in object-oriented distributed systems has mostly been addressed via distributed versions of graph-tracing algorithms, a legacy of centralised garbage collection techniques. Two ...
  • Butterfield, Andrew; Ó Catháin, Art (Springer, 2009)
    We present a CSP model of the internal behaviour of Flash Memory, based on its speci cation by the Open Nand-Flash Interface (ONFi) consortium. This contributes directly to the low-level modelling of the data-storage ...
  • Gancarski, Pawel; Butterfield, Andrew (Springer, 2009)
    This paper describes a complete denotational semantics, in the UTP framework, of slotted-Circus, a generic framework for reasoning about discrete timed/synchronously clocked systems. The key result presented here is a ...
  • Cahill, Vinny; Meier, Rene; Harrington, Anthony (Trinity College Dublin, 2005)
    Integrating individual intelligent transportation systems into comprehensive platforms is a key challenge faced by transport authorities in the provision of optimal service s to users. The use of an ITS architecture ...
  • Pahl, Claus (Springer-Verlag, 2010)
    With software services becoming a strategic capability for the software sector, software architecture needs to address integration problems to help services to collaborate and coordinate their activities. The increasing ...
  • John, Jose; Wang, MingXue; Pahl, Claus (Springer-Verlag, 2010)
    Service-oriented architecture is an architectural approach that can be applied for building autonomous service systems dynamically to satisfy on-demand business requests. During the execution of service compositions, ...
  • Basri, Shuib; O'Connor, Rory V. (2010)
    Software development projects always involve knowledge intensive exchanges. Therefore, the influence of well-organized software development knowledge process could prevent organizations from suffering from the knowledge ...
  • Fox, Jorge; Clarke, Siobhán (Association of Computing Machinery, 2009)
    In this work, we compare current approaches to dynamic adaptation (DA) and identify the need for further research on mechanisms for DA, which should allow for higher compositionality and flexibility. Moreover, after exploring ...
  • O'Connor, Rory V.; Basri, Shuib; Coleman, Gerry (Springer-Verlag, 2010)
    This paper compares and contrasts the results of two similar studies into the software process practices in Irish Small and Very Small Enterprises. The first study contains rich findings in relation to the role and influence ...
  • Liu, Yu; Meier, Rene (University of Oslo, 2008)
    Feature interaction describes a situation where the combination of two or more services that individually perform correctly results in unexpected and possibly adverse behaviour. Such feature interaction issues have first ...
  • Wang, Xiaofeng; Vidgen, Richard (Palgrave McMillan, 2006)
    New technologies, notably service oriented architectures and web services, are enabling a third wave of business process management (BPM). Supporters claim that BPM is informed by complexity theory and that business ...
  • Hamilton, Geoff W.; Mendel-Gleason, Gavin E. (Meta2010, 2010)
    In this paper, we give a graph-based definition of the distillation transformation algorithm. This definition is made within a similar framework to the positive supercompilation algorithm, thus allowing for a more in-depth ...
  • Shannon, Ross; Quigley, Aaron; Nixon, Paddy (Association for Computing Machinery, 2010)
    Network visualisations use clustering approaches to simplify the presentation of complex graph structures. We present a novel application of clustering algorithms, which controls the visual arrangement of the vertices in ...
  • Clarke, Paul; O'Connor, Rory V. (2010)
    The quality of the software development process directly affects the quality of the software product. To be successful, software development organisations must respond to changes in technology and business circumstances, ...
  • Dobson, Simon; Nixon, Paddy; Coyle, Lorcan (IEEE Computer Software Society, 2007)
    Event-based systems are a popular substrate for distributing information derived from sensors to be used in driving adaptive behaviour. This paper argues that using events directly provides a poor model of context, and ...
  • Yilmaz, Murat; O'Connor, Rory V.; Collins, J.J. (Springer-Verlag, 2010)
    We introduce the novel concept of applying economic mechanism design to software development process, and aim to find ways to adjust the incentives and disincentives of the software organization to align them with the ...
  • Beg, Arshad; Butterfield, Andrew (2010)
    Following the development of formalisms based on data and behavioural aspects of the system, there are number of attempts in which these two formalisms are mixed together to get benefit of both paradigms. 'Circus' being a ...
