  • Thorpe, Christina; Cerqueus, Thomas; Ventresque, Anthony (2013)
    The Cloud is a complex, heterogeneous environment consisting of many layered components with complicated interconnections and relationships. Monitoring the Cloud is vital in providing service assurance and upholding SLAs. ...
  • Niazi, Mahmood; Ali Babar, Muhammad (2007)
    OBJECTIVE – In this paper we present findings from an empirical study that was aimed at determining the software process improvement (SPI) motivators. The main objective of this study is to provide SPI practitioners with ...
  • Kattan, Ahmed; Yew-Soon, Ong; Galván-López, Edgar (IEEE Computer Society, 2013)
    In this paper we present a negotiation agent based on Genetic Algorithm (GA) and Surrogate Modelling for a multi-player multi-issue negotiation model under incomplete information scenarios to solve a resource-allocation ...
  • Hajebi, Saeed; Barrett, Stephen; Clarke, Aidan; Clarke, Siobhán (2013)
    In managing water supply, engineers often need to divide a water distribution network (WDN) into smaller clusters. Commonly, they work with District Meter Areas (DMA), a discrete part of the system in which the quantities ...
  • Hinchey, Mike; Vassev, Emil (IOS Press, 2012)
    This chapter introduces the multi-agent paradigm and presents concepts and approaches related to multi-agent systems and paradigm-inspired popular research topics such as grid computing, intelligent swarms, sensor ...
  • Karlsson, Fredrik; Agerfalk, Par J. (2007)
    There appears to be two schools of information systems development methods research that largely pursue their own agendas without many cross-references, On the one hand there is the method engineering research and on ...
  • Taher, Yehia; Haque, Rafiqul; Parkin, Michael; Richardson, Ita; Whelan, Eoin; Van den Heuvel, Willem-Jan (Springer-Verlag, 2011)
    The reusability of services is a cornerstone of the Service-Oriented Architecture design paradigm as it leads to a reduction in the costs associated with software development, integration and maintenance. However, reusability ...
  • Solis, Carlos; Canos, Jose H.; Borges, Marcos R.S. (Springer-Verlag, 2010)
    Collaborative writing and editing typically use annotations to coordinate edition tasks, comment the content, add relevant references, or clarify confusing content. Despite that wikis are among the most widely used hypertext ...
  • Oates, Briony June; Fitzgerald, Brian (Blackwell Publishing Limited, 2007)
    Conventional methods have been criticized for their positivist philosophy and for either ignoring the organizational context of information systems development (ISD) or using only a simplistic, machine-based conceptual ...
  • Dusparic, Ivana; Cahill, Vinny (IFAAMAS, 2009)
    This paper addresses the challenge of multi-policy optimization in decentralized autonomic systems. We evaluate several multi-policy reinforcement learning-based optimization techniques in an urban tra c control simulation, ...
  • Belov, Anton; Marques-Silva, Joao (IOS Press, 2012)
    Algorithms for extraction of Minimally Unsatisfiable Subformulas (MUSes) of CNF formulas find a wide range of practical applications, including product configuration, knowledge-based validation, hardware and software ...
  • Staikopoulos, Athanasios; Saudrais, Sebastien; Clarke, Siobhán; Padget, Julian; Cliffe, Owen; DeVos, Marina (2008)
    In complex service-oriented systems, a number of layers of abstraction may be considered, in particular the models of the organisations involved, how interactions are coordinated and the services which are used and made ...
  • Fitzgerald, Brian; Agerfalk, Par J. (IEEE Computer Society, 2005)
    Open Source Software (OSS) has attracted enormous media and research attention since the term was coined in February 1998. The concept itself is founded on the paradoxical premise that software source code—the ‘crown ...
  • Mc Caffery, Fergal; Coleman, Gerry (Praise Worthy Prize S.r.l., 2007)
    Software is becoming an increasingly important aspect of medical devices and medical device regulation. Software enables highly complex systems to be built. However, complexity is the enemy of safety, therefore strict ...
  • Hashmi, Sajid Ibrahim; Haque, Rafiqul; Schmieders, Eric; Richardson, Ita (IEEE Computer Society, 2011)
    Service Based Systems (SBSs) are composed of loosely coupled services. Different stakeholders in these systems, e.g. service providers, service consumers, and business decision makers, have different types of concerns which ...
  • Chen, Huan; Marques-Silva, Joao (Association for Computing Machinery, 2012)
    Boolean function bi-decomposition is pervasive in logic synthesis. Bi-decomposition entails the decomposition of a Boolean function into two other simpler functions connected by a simple two-input gate. Existing solutions ...
  • Lang, Michael; Fitzgerald, Brian (Taylor & Francis Ltd, 2006)
    Despite claims in the literature that "traditional" methods and techniques are inadequate and poorly matched to the demands of the Web design context, the findings from a field survey of Web/hypermedia systems designers ...
  • Shokry, Hesham; El-Boghdadi, Hatem M.; Shaheen, Samir I. (Association for Computing Machinery, 2008)
    Producing efficient and compact code for embedded DSP processors is very important for nowadays faster and smaller size devices. Because such processors have highly irregular data-path, conventional code generation techniques ...
  • Mc Caffery, Fergal; Wilkie, F.G.; McFall, Donald (2004)
    This presentation discusses statistical findings obtained from a survey of the state of software development practices within Northern Ireland (NI). The survey was developed and conducted by staff from the Centre for ...
  • Dobson, Simon; Nixon, Paddy (Trinity College Dublin, Dept. of Computer Science, 1999)
    We are currently witnessing a convergence of several threads of technology and business imperatives. The idea of a virtual enterprise (VE) – a business built from both organizationally and geographically distributed units ...
