  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • Aguanno, Mauro V.; Lakestani, Fereydoun; Whelan, Maurice P.; Connelly, Michael J. (Society of Photo-Optical Instrumentation Engineers, 2007)
    We describe a heterodyne interferometry system based on a complementary metal-oxide semiconductor digital signal processor (CMOS-DSP) camera that is utilized for full-field optical phase measurement using a carrier-based ...
  • Egan, Patrick; Lakestani, Fereydoun; Whelan, Maurice P.; Connelly, Michael J. (Society of Photo-Optical Instrumentation Engineers, 2006)
    Full-field optical coherence tomography (OCT) using a complementary metal-oxide semiconductor (CMOS) camera with an integrated a digital signal processor (DSP) is demonstrated. The CMOSDSP camera employed is typically used ...
  • Egan, Patrick; Lakestani, Fereydoun; Whelan, Maurice P.; Connelly, Michael J. (Society of Photo-Optical Instrumentation Engineers, 2006)
    Fluctuations in the output intensity and wavelength of an external cavity diode laser can introduce significant error to wavelength-tuned interferometric measurement. However, a robust phase-retrieval algorithm can compensate ...
  • Robin, Sylvain; Arese, Marzia; Forte, Elena; Sarti, Paolo; Kolaj-Robin, Olga; Giuffrè, Alessandro; Soulimane, Tewfik (Public Library of Science, 2013)
    In bacteria, oxidation of sulfite to sulfate, the most common strategy for sulfite detoxification, is mainly accomplished by the molybdenum-containing sulfite:acceptor oxidoreductases (SORs). Bacterial SORs are very diverse ...
  • Martinez, Josu; Dobson, Simon (2009)
    Autonomic computing aims to provide self-management and adaptation in the implementation of complex (large, heterogeneous, distributed) systems over time. Such adaptations must be stable, in the sense of maintaining the ...
  • Vassev, Emil; Hinchey, Mike (Springer-Verlag, 2011)
    Contemporary aerospace systems are complex conglomerates of components where control software drives rigid hardware to aid such systems meet their standards and safety requirements. The design and development of such systems ...
  • Sharif, Khaironi Yatim; Buckley, Jim (2009)
    Several authors have proposed information seeking as an appropriate perspective for studying software maintenance and evolution, and have characterized information seeking empirically in commercial software evolution ...
  • Fitzgerald, Brian; Adam, Frédéric (1996)
    What the future holds for the IS field is not all that clear. On the one hand, it could be argued that IS could become the primary organisational and management discipline, given the primacy of IS for such critical ...
  • Conboy, Kieran; Morgan, Lorraine (Springer Verlag, 2010)
    A particular strength of agile approaches is that they move away from ‘introverted’ development and intimately involve the customer in all areas of development, supposedly leading to the development of a more innovative ...
  • Dorling, Alec; Mc Caffery, Fergal (Springer, 2012)
    Abstract. Process Improvement has been used for decades as a means to become better and more efficient. Whilst many organizations have used considerable resources for process improvement, investments in process improvement ...
  • Arshak, Khalil; Korostynska, Olga (IEEE Computer Society, 2002)
    Thin films of Tellurium dioxide (TeO2) were investigated for γ-radiation dosimetry purposes. Samples were fabricated using thin film vapour deposition technique. Thin films of Te02 were exposed to a 60Co γ-radiation source ...
