  • Hamilton, Geoff W. (2012)
    In this paper, we describe a hierarchy of program transformers in which the transformer at each level of the hierarchy builds on top of the transformers at lower levels. The program transformer at the bottom of the ...
  • Clarke, Paul; O'Connor, Rory V.; Yilmaz, Murat (Springer-Verlag, 2012)
    In an assessment of software process improvement (SPI) in 15 software small- and –medium-sized enterprises (software SMEs), we applied the broad spectrum of software specific and system context processes in ISO/IEC 12207 ...
  • Duffy, Meave; Collins, Christina; Rhen, Fernando M.F.; McCloskey, P.; Roy, Saibal (IEEE Computer Society, 2008)
    High current inductor applications operating in the MHz range are generally limited to Voltage Regulator Modules (VRM’s) and Point of Load (POL) power supplies, where the issue of fast transient response demands reduced ...
  • Geaney, Hugh; Dickinson, Calum; Barrett, Christopher A.; Ryan, Kevin M. (American Chemical Society, 2011)
    Herein, we describe the growth of highly dense germanium nanowire mats directly on copper foil by a self induced, solid seeded protocol. The existence of Cu3Ge tips on each of the nanowires indicates that growth proceeds ...
  • Ryan, Niall C (University of Limerick, 2010)
    This thesis is concerned with the problem of high frequency elastic wave inversion. This is the problem of determining sharp, localised changes in the properties of materials beneath the surface of the earth using only ...
  • Pita, Isabel; Hendaoui, Nordine; Liu, Ning; Kumbham, Mahendar; Tofail, Syed A.M.; Peremans, André; Silien, Christophe (Optical Society of America, 2013)
    Although confocal infrared (IR) absorption micro-spectroscopy is well established for far-field chemical imaging, its scope remains restricted since diffraction limits the spatial resolution to values a little above half ...
  • Mc Hugh, Martin; Mc Caffery, Fergal; Casey, Valentine (2011)
    A recent revision to the European Medical Device Directive (MDD 2007/47/EC) made fourteen amendments to the original directive (93/42/EEC). A number of these changes directly affect the development of software for use in ...
  • Mc Caffery, Fergal; Casey, Valentine; Mc Hugh, Martin (2011)
    Today the amount of software content within medical devices has grown considerably and will continue to do so as the level of complexity of medical devices continues to increase. This is driven by the fact that software ...
  • Huo, Ming; Verner, June; Ali Babar, Muhammad; Zhu, Liming (2004)
    Software quality is one of our most important software concerns. Agile methods may produce software faster but we also need to know how they meet our quality requirements. In this paper we compare the waterfall model ...
  • Morgan, Lorraine; Finnegan, Patrick (2007)
    Much of the assessment of OSS benefits and drawbacks has been based on anecdotal evidence appearing in practitioner publications. Due to its focus on software development, such work neglects whether managerial perceptions ...
  • Kiri, Victor A; MacKenzie, Gilbert (Bentham Science Publishers, 2009)
    Although cohort studies which are based on intention-to-treat (ITT) approach offer a simple design with data which are simpler to analyse and results easier to interpret, such studies also intrinsically assume that any ...
  • Janota, Mikolas; Botterweck, Goetz; Grigore, Radu; Marques-Silva, Joao (Springer-Verlag, 2010)
    When configuring customizable software, it is useful to provide interactive tool-support that ensures that the configuration does not breach given constraints. But, when is a configuration complete and how can the tool ...
  • Sweetman, Roger; O'Dwyer, Orla; Conboy, Kieran (Engineers Ireland, 2012)
    The current difficult economic conditions place organisations under greater pressure than ever to increase performance and achieve efficiencies. In such times, organisations must ensure the portfolio of engineering ...
  • Ryan, Anna (University College Cork, Department of Geography, 2004)
  • Bannon, Liam (Elsevier, 2004)
    Prologue I first met Niels Bjørn-Andersen when we were both on the International Programme Committee for an EU Conference on the Information Society chaired by Enid Mumford (Bjørn-Andersen et al., 1982). In 1985, I met ...
  • Marinescu, Andrei; Harris, Colin; Dusparic, Ivana; Cahill, Vinny; Clarke, Siobhán (IEEE Computer Society, 2014)
    Microgrid management and scheduling can considerably benefit from day-ahead demand forecasting. Until now, most of the research in the field of electrical demand forecasting has been done on large-scale systems, such ...
  • Yang, Hui; Willis, Alistair; De Roeck, Anne; Nuseibeh, Bashar (Libertas Academica, 2012)
    We describe the Open University team’s submission to the 2011 i2b2/VA/Cincinnati Medical Natural Language Processing Challenge, Track 2 Shared Task for sentiment analysis in suicide notes. This Shared Task focused on the ...
  • Pluska, Michal; Sinclair, David (2010)
    Around ninety percent of vehicle innovations are driven mainly by electronics. The software implementing control algorithms combines the sensor values and calculates some meaningful actuator signals. On the other hand ...
  • Wang, Shen; Djahel, Soufiene; McManis, Jennifer (2013)
    Nowadays, the rapid rise of the number of vehicles on the roads has led to several challenging problems for road authorities, such as traffic congestion, increasing number of accidents and air pollution. According to ...
  • Buglione, Luigi; Hauck, Jean Carlo R.; Gresse von Wangenheim, Christiane; Mc Caffery, Fergal (2012)
    Estimation represents one of the most critical processes for any project and it is highly dependent on the quality of requirements elicitation and management. Therefore, the management of requirements should be prioritised ...
