  • Coleman, Gerry (IEEE Computer Society, 2004)
    Within the body of literature, much emphasis has been placed on the use of process models to support software development [1, 2, 3]. Despite this, there is significant variation in the software processes used by software ...
  • Cespedes, Oscar; Luu, A.; Rhen, Fernando M.F.; Coey, John Michael David (IEEE Computer Society, 2008)
    A method is described for the fabrication of magnetic force microscopy tips via localized electrodeposition and focused ion beam milling departing from commercial tapping mode tips. Very high aspect ratios and interacting ...
  • Kelly, Dervla; Singh, Ajay; Barrett, Christopher A.; O'Sullivan, Catriona; Coughlan, Claudia; Laffir, Fathima R.; O'Dwyer, Colm; Ryan, Kevin M. (Royal Society of Chemistry, 2011)
    A facile spin cast route was developed to convert perpendicularly aligned nanorod assemblies of cadmium chalcogenides into their silver and copper analogues. The assemblies are rapidly cation exchanged without affecting ...
  • Kelly, Dervla (University of Limerick, 2012)
    This master’s thesis outlines the novel spin exchange process which was developed to create centimetre scale nanorod assemblies of copper and silver chalcogenides. These assemblies originated by synthesising CdS and CdSe ...
  • 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 ...
  • Finn, Patrick M. (University of Limerick, 2011)
    As part of a European Union climate change and energy package that aims to reduce greenhouse gases by 20%, reach 20% penetration of renewable energy, and improve energy efficiency by 20% by 2020, Ireland has committed ...
  • 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 ...
  • O'Connell, Barry M; McGloughlin, Timothy M.; Walsh, Michael T. (BioMed Central, 2010)
    Coronary artery disease can be treated by implanting a stent into the blocked region of an artery, thus enabling blood perfusion to distal vessels. Minimally invasive procedures of this nature often result in damage to ...
  • Moore, Thomas D.; Jarvis, John L. (IEEE Computer Society, 2001)
    This paper examines one of the common modes of structural failure in multichip ball grid arrays (BGAs), determines its locations within the package structure, relates it to the stresses generated in the reliability tests ...
  • 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 ...
  • Egan, B; McCarthy, C.T.; McCarthy, M.A. (2013)
  • 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. ...
