  • Higgins, Orla (School of Architecture, University of Limerick, 2011)
    Through investigations of local vernacular and historical building along the coast of Ireland, I’ve sought to add new value along the coastal edge. The thesis explores the impact of the natural condition on how manmade ...
  • Joyce, Aisling (School of Architecture, University of Limerick, 2012)
    In the following text I explore the unique qualities of an Irish landscape with a particular interest to me. The study of architecture has enhanced my understanding and appreciation of the meaning of place. In attempting ...
  • Hemati-Moghadam, Iman; Ó Cinnéide, Mel (Association for Computing Machinery, 2011)
    Manual refactoring is tedious and error-prone, so it is natural to try to automate this process as much as possible. Fully automated refactoring usually involves using metaheuristic search to determine which refactorings ...
  • Buda, Teodora Sandra; Cerqueus, Thomas; Murphy, John; Kristiansen, Morten (Springer, 2013)
    Database sampling has become a popular approach to handle large amounts of data in a wide range of application areas such as data mining or approximate query evaluation. Using database samples is a potential solution ...
  • Vidgen, Richard; Wang, Xiaofeng (INFORMS (Institute for Operations Research and Management Sciences), 2009)
    Despite the popularity of agile methods in software development and increasing adoption by organizations there is debate about what agility is and how it is achieved. The debate suffers from a lack of understanding of agile ...
  • Zeng, Liaoyuan; McGrath, Sean; Liu, Guanghui (SpringerOpen, 2014)
    A critical objective of cognitive radio (CR) system is to enhance the spectrum efficiency, and one of the key factors that can determine the spectrum efficiency is the system spectrum sensing performance with respect to ...
  • Tanner, D.A; Robinson, J.S; Cudd, Richard L (Trans Tech Publications, 2000)
    7010 is one of the high strength aluminium alloys used mainly as plate and forgings in the aerospace industry. Its high strength is achieved through a quenching operation where the material is rapidly cooled from the ...
  • Shannon, Ross; Quigley, Aaron; Nixon, Paddy (Association for Computing Machinery, 2006)
    As visualizations of large systems get more and more complex, larger collaborative spaces are required so that a team of designers may work together while visualising their system. This paper describes the outfitting ...
  • Feller, Joseph; Fitzgerald, Brian; Hissam, Scott; Lakhani, Karim (Association for Computing Machinery, 2005)
    Building on the success of the first three workshops in the series, which were held at ICSE 2001 (Toronto), ICSE 2002 (Orlando) and ICSE 2003 (Portland), the 4th Workshop on Open Source Software Engineering, ("Collaboration, ...
  • Penades, Maria Carmen; Borges, Marcos R.S.; Vivacqua, Adriana; Canos, Jose H.; Solis, Carlos (2011)
    Emergency plans are fundamental for the speedy and effective response in disaster situations. Plans are often constructed by teams of experts, who apply their expertise to define response procedures, but lack part of ...
  • Salkham, As'ad; Cunningham, Raymond; Garg, Anurag; Cahill, Vinny (IEEE Computer Society, 2008)
    The high growth rate of vehicles per capita now poses a real challenge to efficient Urban Traffic Control (UTC). An efficient solution to UTC must be adaptive in order to deal with the highly-dynamic nature of urban ...
  • 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 ...
  • Singh, Ajay; Geaney, Hugh; Laffir, Fathima R.; Ryan, Kevin M. (American Chemical Society, 2012)
    The quaternary copper chalcogenide, Cu2ZnSnS4, is an important emerging material for the development of low cost and sustainable solar cells. Here we report a facile solution synthesis of stoichiometric Cu2ZnSnS4 in size ...
  • Wang, Xiaofeng (2011)
    There has been a noticeable focus shift from agilemethods such as eXtreme Programming (XP) and Scrum tolean software development in the last several years, which is indicated as “from agile to lean”. However, the reality ...
  • Conboy, Kieran; Morgan, Lorraine (2010)
    This paper describes a research-in-progress that explores the applicability and implications of open innovation in a multiple-project environment that employs agile approaches to information systems development. In doing ...
  • Feeney, Seán (School of Architecture, University of Limerick, 2013)
    This thesis is an exploration into certain relationships and qualities of Irish culture with its landscape, natural and constructed. Coming from an area culturally rich with traditions of music, language and farming, I ...
  • Glynn, Eugene; Fitzgerald, Brian; Exton, Chris (IEEE Computer Society, 2005)
    There has been a dramatic increase in commercial interest in the potential of Open Source Software (OSS) over the past few years. However, given the many complex and novel issues that surround the use of OSS, the process ...
  • Hashmi, Sajid Ibrahim; Ishikawa, Fuyuki; Richardson, Ita (Association for Computing Machinery, 2013)
    Globally distributed software development teams face problems with software development life cycle phases, as the distributed nature of each of these phases make it even more challenging to communicate between the stakeholders. ...
  • Reidy, Colin (University of Limerick, 2010)
    Hydroxyapatite [Ca10(PO4)6OH2, HA] is the major constituent of the mineral phase of bone and exhibits desirable properties as a bone graft, such as biocompatibility, bioactivity, osteoconductivity and direct bonding to ...
  • Trujillo, Leonardo; Martínez, Yuliana; Galván-López, Edgar; Legrand, Pierrick (Association for Computing Machinery, 2012)
    An open question within Genetic Programming (GP) is how to characterize problem difficulty. The goal is to develop predictive tools that estimate how difficult a problem is for GP to solve. Here we consider two groups ...
