  • Dobson, Simon; Farragher, Linda (Trinity College Dublin, Department of Computer Science, 2000)
    Most modern programming languages are complex and feature rich. Whilst this is (sometimes) an advantage for industrial-strength applications, it complicates both language teaching and language research. We describe our ...
  • Buckley, Jim; Mooney, Sean; Rosik, Jacek; Ali, Nour (Association for Computing Machinery, 2013)
    Architectural drift is a widely cited problem in software engineering, where the implementation of a software system diverges from the designed architecture over time causing architecture inconsistencies. Previous work ...
  • Rabiser, Rick; O'Leary, Pádraig; Richardson, Ita (2010)
    More and more organizations adopt software product lines to leverage extensive reuse and deliver a multitude of benefits such as increased quality and productivity and a decrease in cost and time-to-market of their software ...
  • Stol, Klaas-Jan; Avgeriou, Paris; Ali Babar, Muhammad; Lucas, Yan; Fitzgerald, Brian (Association for Computing Machinery, 2014)
    A number of organizations have adopted Open Source Software (OSS) development practices to support or augment their software development processes, a phenomenon frequently referred to as Inner Source. However the adoption ...
  • Bordeaux, Lucas; Marques-Silva, Joao (Springer, 2012)
    When we encode constraints as Boolean formulas, a natural question is whether the encoding ensures a ”propagation completeness” property: is the basic unit propagation mechanism able to deduce all the literals that ...
  • Donnellan, Brian; Fitzgerald, Brian (2003)
    The changing competitive landscape has brought new forces to bear on the manner in which new products are developed. These forces have put the creation and dissemination of knowledge at the centre of many firms’ new ...
  • Vassev, Emil; Hinchey, Mike (IEEE Computer Society, 2011)
    Knowledge is the source of intelligence and both knowledge representation and knowledge management are crucial for intelligent systems. Well employed knowledge helps such systems become aware of situations, recognize ...
  • Vassev, Emil; Hinchey, Mike (IEEE Computer Society, 2011)
  • Vassev, Emil; Hinchey, Mike (IEEE Computer Society, 2012)
    Cognitive robotics are autonomous systems capable of artificial reasoning. Such systems can be achieved with a logical approach, but still AI struggles to connect the abstract logic with real-world meanings. Knowledge ...
  • Vassev, Emil (Taylor & Francis, 2011)
    Knowledge is a source of intelligence and both knowledge representation and knowledge management are crucial for intelligent systems. Well employed knowledge helps such systems become aware of situations, recognize states ...
  • Vassev, Emil; Hinchey, Mike; Gaudin, Benoit (Association for Computing Machinery, 2012)
    An autonomic system is considered to be a self-adaptive system that changes its behavior in response to stimuli from its execution and operational environment. Such behavior is considered autonomic and self-adaptive and ...
  • Vassev, Emil; Hinchey, Mike (IEEE Computer Society, 2012)
    Intelligent systems are capable of AI exhibited via knowledge representation and reasoning, which helps to connect abstract knowledge symbols to real-world meanings. This paper presents a formal language for knowledge ...
  • Avram, Gabriela (2007)
    This paper is an exploration of knowledge work practices in a distributed software development setting. The author has undertaken an empirical study in the Irish subsidiary of a multinational company over a 16-month period. ...
  • Vassev, Emil; Hinchey, Mike (2013)
    Self-adaptation is the ability of a system to adapt its behavior and/or computational structures to changes in the execution environment. The paradigm requires that the system engages in various interactions where ...
  • Wang, Xiaofeng; Conboy, Kieran; Cawley, Oisín (Elsevier, 2012)
    In recent years there has been a noticeable shift in attention from those who use agile software development toward lean software development, often labelled as a shift “from agile to lean”. However, the reality may not ...
  • Cawley, Oisín; Wang, Xiaofeng; Richardson, Ita (Springer Verlag, 2010)
    Choosing the appropriate software development methodology is something which continues to occupy the minds of many IT professionals. The introduction of “Agile” development methodologies such as XP and SCRUM held the promise ...
  • Lane, Michael (University of Limerick, 2013)
    Agile software development (ASD) has emerged as a practice-led initiative which offers great promise in improving software productivity. However some confusion exists as to its relationship with Lean Software Development ...
  • Buglione, Luigi; Gresse von Wangenheim, Christiane; Hauck, Jean Carlo R.; Mc Caffery, Fergal (2011)
    “Maturity model” (MM) (based on Crosby’s original idea) has been one of the main buzzwords over the past 20 years. A variety of MMs have been created in several application domains, from Software Engineering to Contract ...
  • Buglione, Luigi; Gresse von Wangenheim, Christiane; Mc Caffery, Fergal; Hauck, Jean Carlo R. (EuroSPI, 2012)
    When dealing with improvements, organizations seek to find a break-even point for their applications as early as possible in order to maximize the return from their investment. However, in some cases such a strategy can ...
  • O'Connor, Rory V.; Sanders, Martha H. (Springer-Verlag, 2013)
    This paper presents an overview of a pilot implementation of the ISO/IEC 29110 standard, with a group of very small software development companies based in Ireland. This paper may serve as guidance for both researchers ...
