  • Dobson, Simon (IEEE Computer Society, 2008)
    While it is desirable for all computing and communications systems to have well-defined and verifiable behaviour, autonomic systems must additionally guarantee that their adaptive behaviour is correct, both in the sense ...
  • Campbell, Abey; Collier, Rem W.; Dragone, Mauro; Görgü, Levent; Holz, Thomas; O'Grady, Michael J; O'Hare, G.M.P.; Sassu, Antoella; Stafford, John (Springer, 2012)
    Facilitating intuitive interaction is a prerequisite for the ubiquitous computing paradigm in all its manifestations. How to achieve such interaction in practice remains an open question. Such interfaces must be perceived ...
  • Morgan, Lorraine; Conboy, Kieran (2013)
    While it is widely acknowledged that cloud computing has the potential to transform a large part of the IT industry, issues surrounding the adoption of cloud computing have received relatively little attention. Drawing on ...
  • Hinchey, Mike (IEEE Computer Society, 2011)
    NASA is developing plans for innovative and novel approaches to future (unmanned) space exploration missions. Future missions involve sending spacecraft and robots to harsh environments, where resilience is necessary for ...
  • Djahel, Soufiene; Zhang, Zonghua; Naït-Abdesselam, Farid; Murphy, John (IEEE Computer Society, 2012)
    In this paper, we deal with backoff cheating technique in IEEE802.11 based MANETs and propose a novel scheme, dubbed HsF-MAC (Hash Function based MAC protocol), to cope with it. In contrast to the existing solutions, ...
  • Cleary, Jimmy; Callanan, Owen; Purcell, Mark; Gregg, David (Association for Computing Machinery, 2013)
    For most multi-threaded applications, data structures must be shared between threads. Ensuring thread safety on these data structures incurs overhead in the form of locking and other synchronization mechanisms. Where data ...
  • Gaudin, Benoit; Vassev, Emil; Hinchey, Mike; Nixon, Paddy; Coelho, Garcia J.; Maalej, Walid (Szkoła Wyższa Psychologii Społecznej (SWPS), 2012)
    One of the main objectives of self-adaptive systems is to reduce maintenance costs through automatic adaptation. Self-healing is a self-adapting property that helps systems return to a normal state after a fault or ...
  • English, Michael; Exton, Chris; Cleary, Brendan; Rigon, Irene (Association for Computing Machinery, 2009)
    Software maintenance continues to be a time and resource intensive activity. Any efforts that help to address the maintenance bottleneck within the software lifecycle are welcome. One area where such e orts are useful is ...
  • Kroll, Josiane; Prikladnicki, Rafael; Audy, Jorge L.N.; Carmel, Erran; Fernandez, Jude (2013)
    Follow-the-sun (FTS) is a strategy for Global Software Development (GSD) where you hand off work at the end of every day from one site to the next, many time zones away, in order to speed up product development. Companies ...
  • Botterweck, Goetz; Lee, Kwanwoo (2009)
    In this position paper, we discuss feature dependencies as one major challenge in product line engineering. We suggest that (1) feature dependencies should be treated as first class entities and (2) dependencies in various ...
  • 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 ...
  • Lee, Kwanwoo; Botterweck, Goetz; Thiel, Steffen (IEEE Computer Society, 2009)
    Feature modeling is an essential activity for modeling and managing the variability of a software product line. On the other hand, aspect-oriented programming provides effective means for modularizing feature implementation. ...
  • Sanders, Martha H. (University of Limerick, 2008)
    The environment of software development and maintenance is intangible, invisible and consequently difficult to manage. Specific problems have been documented, and solutions developed to meet these individual problems. ...
  • English, Michael; Buckley, Jim; Cahill, Tony (IEEE Computer Society, 2007)
    Modularity is one of the key features of the Object-Oriented (OO) paradigm. Low coupling and high cohesion help to achieve good modularity. Inheritance is one of the core concepts of the OO paradigm which facilitates ...
  • Dobson, Simon; Bailey, Eoin; Knox, Stephen; Shannon, Ross; Quigley, Aaron; SFI (IEEE Computer Society, 2007)
    Control systems must increasingly be designed to involve collections of hardware and software components, both of which may evolve over the lifetime of the system, and which are expected to provide self-managing, adaptive, ...
  • McHugh, Fearghal; Acton, Thomas (Center for Innovations in Business & Management Practice (CIBMP), 2012)
    The fast, unstructured and turbulent nature of decision making in agile software development (ASD) teams at times necessitates software-based support tools (Dabrowski, Acton, Drury, Conboy, and Dabrowska, 2011). The demands ...
  • Buglione, Luigi; Mc Caffery, Fergal; Hauck, Jean Carlo R.; Gresse von Wangenheim, Christiane (Springer, 2012)
    One of the main challenges for ICT organizations is to initiate a well-structured process improvement program. This is particularly the case when adopting a maturity & capability model (MCM) as it brings with it costs ...
  • Fitzgerald, Brian; Slaughter, Sandra A.; Agerfalk, Par J. (INFORMS (Institute for Operations Research and Management Sciences), 2006)
    In recent years, considerable research attention has been devoted to process flexibility and globally distributed IS development. The quest for flexibility is evident in the development of various agile methods, such as ...
  • Bergel, Alexandre (IEEE Computer Society, 2011)
    Wireless sensor networks necessitate a programming model different from those used to develop desktop applications. Typically, resources in terms of power and memory are constrained. C is the most common programming language ...
