  • Holmstrom Olsson, Helena; Fitzgerald, Brian; Agerfalk, Par J.; Ó Conchúir, Eoin (Taylor & Francis, 2006)
    This article explores how agile practices can reduce three kinds of “distance” — temporal, geographical,and sociocultural — in global software development (GSD). On the basis of two indepth case studies, specific Scrum and ...
  • Butler, Colin (University of Limerick, 2013)
    The content of this thesis describes the interaction of internal heat dissipating elements with their heated enclosure with the applied case of a crown compartment in a single aisle commercial aircraft. The crown compartment ...
  • Dalpiaz, Fabiano; Ali, Raian; Giorgini, Paolo (2012)
    An important activity to maximize Business/IT alignment is selecting a software con guration that ts a given context. Feature models represent the space of software con gurations in terms of distin- guished characteristics ...
  • Salifu, Mohammed; Yu, Yijun; Bandara, Arosha K.; Nuseibeh, Bashar (Elsevier, 2012)
    In the field of pervasive and ubiquitous computing, context-aware adaptive systems need to monitor changes in their environment in order to detect violations of requirements and switch their behaviour in order to continue ...
  • Fennell, Peter G; Gleeson, James P.; Cellai, Davide (American Physical Society, 2014)
    Facilitated spin models were introduced some decades ago to mimic systems characterized by a glass transition. Recent developments have shown that a class of facilitated spin models is also able to reproduce characteristic ...
  • Carroll, Noel; Whelan, Eoin; Richardson, Ita (Robert Chi, 2010)
    The literature indicates that there is urgent need to address the significant gap in our ability to value the contributory interaction of service networks in organisational performance. This paper is primarily concerned ...
  • Carroll, Noel; Richardson, Ita; Whelan, Eoin (2010)
    The unprecedented growth in service-based business processes over a short period of time has underscored the need for understanding the mechanisms and theorising the business models and business process management adopted ...
  • Gahan, Jacinta; Schmalenberger, Achim (Elsevier, 2015)
    Hyphae of symbiotic arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) fungi extend into the soil, affecting the hyphosphere and interact with beneficial soil bacteria. This study aimed to elucidate differences in hyphosphere, hyphoplane and ...
  • Vassev, Emil; Hinchey, Mike (IEEE Computer Society, 2013)
    Contemporary robotics relies on the most recent advances in automation and robotic technologies to promote autonomy and autonomic computing principles to robotized systems. However, it appears that the design and implementation ...
  • Schmalenberger, Achim; O'Sullivan, Orla; Gahan, Jacinta; Cotter, Paul D; Courtney, Ronan (American Chemical Society, 2013)
    Bauxite residue is the alkaline byproduct generated when alumina is extracted from bauxite ores and is commonly deposited in impoundments. These sites represent hostile environments with increased salinity and alkalinity ...
  • Schmalenberger, Achim; Noll, Matthias (Elsevier, 2014)
    Sulphonates are often the major form of sulphur in soils where sulphate usually represents less than 5% of the total sulphur. The use of sulphonates as a S source is limited to a functional bacterial guild. However, fungi ...
  • Gleeson, James P. (American Physical Society, 2013)
    A wide class of binary-state dynamics on networks-including, for example, the voter model, the Bass diffusion model, and threshold models-can be described in terms of transition rates (spin-flip probabilities) that depend ...
  • Kwapinski, Witold; Byrne, Corinna M.P.; Kryachko, Ekaterina; Wolfram, Przemyslaw; Adley, Catherine C; Leahy, J.J.; Novotny, Etelvino H.; Hayes, Michael H. (Springer Netherlands, 2010)
    There is an increasing realisation that biomass and organic wastes are valuable feedstocks for second generation biorefining processes that give rise to platform chemicals to substitute for dwindling petrochemical resources, ...
  • Omoronyia, Inah; Pasquale, Liliana; Salehie, Mazeiar; Cavallaro, Luca; Doherty, Gavin; Nuseibeh, Bashar (Association for Computing Machinery, 2012)
    In a dynamic environment where context changes frequently, users’ privacy requirements can also change. To satisfy such changing requirements, there is a need for continuous analysis to discover new threats and possible ...
  • Nirmalraj, Peter N; Thompson, Damien; Riel, Heike E (Nature Publishing Group, 2015)
    The drive towards organic computing is gaining momentum. Interestingly, the building blocks for such architectures is based on molecular ensembles extending from nucleic acids to synthetic molecules. Advancement in this ...
  • Scanlon, Micheál D; Salaj-Kośla, Urszula; Belochapkine, Serguei; MacAodha, Domhnall; Leech, Dónal; Ding, Yi; Magner, Edmond (American Chemical Society, 2012)
    The high surface areas of nanostructured electrodes can provide for significantly enhanced surface loadings of electroactive materials. The fabrication and characterization of nanoporous gold (np-Au) substrates as electrodes ...
  • Chen, Lianping; Babar, Muhmmad Ali; Nuseibeh, Bashar (IEEE Computer Society, 2013)
    At the heart of any engineering discipline is the interplay between problem and solution development. In software engineering, the effectiveness of a software solution is determined with respect to a problem, yet the nature ...
  • Hashmi, Sajid Ibrahim; Richardson, Ita (2013)
    Outsourcing is an essential part of global software development and entails software development distributed across geographical borders. More specifically, it deals with software development teams dispersed across multiple ...
  • Hashmi, Sajid Ibrahim; Lane, Stephen; Karastoyanova, Dimka; Richardson, Ita (2010)
    Service Based Applications (SBAs) have highlighted new challenges related to Configuration Management (CM). This is an important process for the assurance of end to end quality in software systems. As far as the quality ...
  • McDermott, Fiona; Maye, Laura; Avram, Gabriela (Irish Human Computer Interaction (iHCI), 2014)
    The paper describes our work undertaken as part of a EU-funded collaborative project involving twelve partners from six European countries, aiming to provide a platform for the creation of tangible smart exhibits to enable ...
