  • Feller, Joseph; Fitzgerald, Brian (Association for Computing Machinery, 2000)
    Open Source Software (OSS) has become the subject of much commercial interest of late. Certainly, OSS seems to hold much promise in addressing the core issues of the software crisis, namely that of software taking too long ...
  • Ahmad, Aakash; Jamshidi, Pooyan; Pahl, Claus (Association for Computing Machinery, 2013)
    Software systems continuously evolve as a consequence of frequent changes in their functional requirements and the environment surrounding them. Architecture-centric software evolution (ACSE) enables changes in software ...
  • Fitzgerald, Brian; Adam, Frédéric (1996)
    There is much concern among IS researchers due to the failure to establish adequate conceptual and theoretical foundations, and also the lack of clear definitions of concepts and terminology in the IS field. This paper ...
  • Jamshidi, Pooyan; Ghafari, Mohammad; Ahmad, Aakash; Pahl, Claus (IEEE Computer Society, 2013)
    Context: Software systems are increasingly required to operate in an open world, characterized by continuous changes in the environment and in the prescribed requirements. Architecture-centric software evolution (ACSE) is ...
  • Agerfalk, Par J.; Fitzgerald, Brian; Holmstrom Olsson, Helena; Lings, Brian; Lundell, Bjorn; Ó Conchúir, Eoin (Austrian Computer Society, 2005)
    In this paper we present an overview of the field of distributed development of software systems and applications (DD). Based on an analysis of the published literature, we consider threats to communication, coordination ...
  • Haque, Rafiqul; Richardson, Ita; Whelan, Eoin; Taher, Yehia; Van den Heuvel, Willem-Jan; Tawbi, Samar (International Journal of Information Studies, 2011)
    Processes are the main constituents of public services and as such demand correct and complete execution. Increasingly however, governments feel the pressuring need to deliver public services more quickly and personalized ...
  • Silien, Christophe; Liu, Ning; Hendaoui, Nordine; Tofail, Syed A.M.; Peremans, André (Optical Society of America, 2012)
    A framework is proposed for infrared (IR) absorption microscopy in the far-field with a spatial resolution below the diffraction limit. The sub-diffraction resolution is achieved by pumping a transient contrast in the ...
  • O'Neill, Susan; Conboy, Kieran; Morgan, Lorraine (IEEE Computer Society, 2011)
    The theme of this year’s ICIS conference focuses on connectivity and collaboration. In Information Systems Development (ISD) these concepts are increasingly important as developing effective information systems is rarely ...
  • Ali Babar, Muhammad (IEEE Computer Society, 2009)
    Software Architecture (SA) evaluation process requires a large number of stakeholders to be collocated for evaluation sessions. Given the increasing trend of using globally distributed software development teams, organizations ...
  • Cionca, Victor (University of Limerick, 2011)
    The future of our society, the connected world of tomorrow, will be one of better integration with, and more awareness of our surroundings. Wireless sensor networks will breathe life into objects and allow us to extend our ...
  • Finnegan, Anita; Mc Caffery, Fergal; Coleman, Gerry (Springer, 2013)
    This paper introduces an assurance framework for networked medical device development. This work is being conducted to address the everincreasing concerns of medical device security with a specific focus on medical devices ...
  • Flanagan, Sarah (University of Limerick, 2010)
    The work described in this report is a contribution to ongoing research to develop more effective orthopaedic joint systems though fundamental studies of the behaviour of various novel material combinations and component ...
  • English, Michael; Buckley, Jim; Cahill, Tony (IEEE Computer Society, 2005)
    Previous research has highlighted the extensive use of the C++ friend construct in both library-based and application-based systems. However, existing software metrics do not concentrate on measuring friendship accurately, ...
  • Wang, Xiaofeng; Lane, Michael; Conboy, Kieran (Agile Alliance, 2011)
    In the last several years there has been a noticeable focus shift of agile methods from eXtreme Programming (XP) and Scrum to Lean approaches, which is indicated as “from agile to lean”. However our understanding of the ...
  • Wang, Xiaofeng; Vidgen, Richard (Palgrave McMillan, 2006)
    New technologies, notably service oriented architectures and web services, are enabling a third wave of business process management (BPM). Supporters claim that BPM is informed by complexity theory and that business ...
  • Bresciani, Riccardo; Butterfield, Andrew (Springer, 2013)
    We have introduced probability in the UTP framework by using functions from the state space to real numbers, which we term distributions, that are embedded in the predicates describing the di er- ent program constructs. ...
  • Feller, Joseph; Finnegan, Patrick; Fitzgerald, Brian; Hayes, Jeremy (INFORMS, 2008)
    Peer production phenomena such as open source software (OSS) have been posited as a viable alternative to traditional production models. However, community-based development often falls short of creating software “products” ...
  • Dobson, Simon; Coyle, Lorcan; O'Hare, G.M.P.; Hinchey, Mike (IEEE Computer Society, 2009)
    Mobile sensors are an attractive proposition for environmental sensing, but pose significant engineering problems. Not least amongst these is the need to match the behaviour of the sensor platform to the physical environment ...
  • Mancini, Clara; Thomas, Keerthi; Rogers, Yvonne; Price, Blaine A.; Jedrzejczyk, Lukasz; Bandara, Arosha K.; Joinson, Adam N.; Nuseibeh, Bashar (Association for Computing Machinery, 2009)
    Mobile privacy concerns are central to Ubicomp and yet remain poorly understood. We advocate a diversified approach, enabling the cross-interpretation of data from complementary methods. However, mobility imposes a number ...
  • Dobson, Simon; Sterritt, Roy; Nixon, Paddy; Hinchey, Mike (IEEE Computer Society, 2010)
    Efforts since 2001 to design self-managing systems have yielded many impressive achievements, yet the original vision of autonomic computing remains unfulfilled. Researchers must develop a comprehensive systems engineering ...
