  • Baresi, Luciano; Pasquale, Liliana (2011)
    Requirements elicitation is an important phase of the software life-cycle, since it helps to reduce the software development time and costs. Unfortunately, existing tools for software design are mainly focused on building ...
  • McKeogh, John; Exton, Chris (Association for Computing Machinery, 2004)
    Comprehending and maintaining software is one of the core software engineering activities from early implementation to long-term software evolution. This paper describes an Eclipse based tool, which provides ...
  • Richardson, Ita; Reid, Louise; Seidman, Stephen B; Pattinson, Bob; Delaney, Yvonne (IEEE Computer Society, 2011)
    Software Engineering graduates are expected to enter the workforce with both technical and soft skills. In addition, software quality is a topic that is becoming increasingly important both because of educational and ...
  • O'Connor, Rory V.; Basri, Shuib (IGI Global, 2012)
    This article identifies the effect of team dynamics in the context of software development teams and its impact on software process improvement (SPI) activities in very small companies, in order to understand the ...
  • Vassev, Emil; Hinchey, Mike (Springer, 2012)
    Modern reasoning is based on inference techniques such as induction, deduction, abduction, subsumption, classification and recognition. These inference techniques are very inefficient when applied to large amounts of ...
  • Vassev, Emil; Hinchey, Mike (Springer, 2012)
    Autonomous behavior and onboard decision making is the backbone of robotic space exploration. The enormous distance and communication latency make such missions hardly controllable from Earth and external decision making ...
  • Tennina, Stefano; Bouroche, Mélanie; Braga, Pedro; Gomes, Ricardo; Alves, Mario; Mirza, Farrukh; Ciriello, Vincenzo; Carrozza, Gabriella; Oliveira, Pedro; Cahill, Vinny (IEEE Computer Society, 2011)
    Wireless sensor networks (WSNs) have attracted growing interest in the last decade as an infrastructure to support a diversity of ubiquitous computing and cyber-physical systems. However, most research work has focused on ...
  • Clarke, Paul; O'Connor, Rory V. (Wiley_Blackwell, 2013)
    Although earlier studies revealed much about software process improvement (SPI) in Small- to Medium-sized Enterprises (software SMEs), no earlier research set out to determine the full extent of SPI being implemented in ...
  • Yilmaz, Murat; O'Connor, Rory V. (Springer, 2011)
    The actual and expected benefits of fostering the alignment of people factors and cooperation among software development teams enables software development organization to improve software development productivity. ...
  • Fitzgerald, Brian (Elsevier Science, 1998)
    A postal survey was conducted to determine the following: the extent to which systems development methodologies are used in practice; the rating of their contribution to the development process; and the future trend in ...
  • Heras, Federico; Morgado, Antonio; Marques-Silva, Joao (Springer, 2012)
    Weighted Partial MaxSAT (WPMS) is a well-known optimization variant of Boolean Satisfiability (SAT) that finds a wide range of practical applications.WPMS divides the formula in two sets of clauses: The hard clauses ...
  • Coleman, Gerry (IEEE Computer Society, 2005)
    In adopting a software process model, many small software companies are ignoring standard process models and models for process improvement. This study uses an empirical approach to investigate what processes software ...
  • English, Michael; Buckley, Jim; Cahill, Tony (IEEE Computer Society, 2005)
    A commonly held belief is that the friend construct in C++ is a violation of encapsulation. However, little empirical analysis of its use has taken place to provide evidence to support this claim. This paper presents a ...
  • Buckley, Jim; O'Brien, Michael P.; Power, Norah (2006)
    Several authors have proposed information seeking as an appropriate perspective for studying software maintenance activities. However, there is little research in the literature describing holistic information-seeking ...
  • O'Brien, Michael P.; Buckley, Jim; Exton, Chris (IEEE Computer Society, 2005)
    It is the view of many computer scientists that the standard of empirical software engineering research leaves scope for improvement. However, there is also an increasing awareness in the software engineering community ...
  • Power, Ken; Morgan, Lorraine; Conboy, Kieran (XP2010, 2010)
    In much the same way that XP and agile development radically changed the software development landscape, Open Innovation is transforming how organizations manage their innovation processes. In a traditional ‘closed innovation’ ...
  • Karakehayov, Z.; Vassev, Emil (IEEE Computer Society, 2011)
    Reducing power consumption is an important design objective in energy-constrained embedded and mobile systems. Such systems must be designed to meet functional and often timing requirements facing the challenge of energy ...
  • Doherty, Gavin; Coyle, David; Sharry, John (Association for Computing Machinery, 2012)
    Online mental health interventions can benefit people experiencing a range of psychological difficulties, but attrition is a major problem in real-world deployments. We discuss strategies to reduce attrition, and ...
  • Omoronyia, Inah; Cavallaro, Luca; Salehie, Mazeiar; Pasquale, Liliana; Nuseibeh, Bashar (Association for Computing Machinery, 2013)
    Applications that continuously gather and disclose personal information about users are increasingly common. While disclosing this information may be essential for these applications to function, it may also raise privacy ...
  • Ryan, Kevin (IEEE Computer Society, 2008)
    Information and communication technologies, particularly software, play a crucial role in the Republic of Ireland's remarkable economic growth. Successful globalization has posed many challenges and fostered a major strategic ...
