  • Noll, John; Pirotta, Ermanno; Solis, Carlos; Wang, Xiaofeng (2011)
    Automated accept testing is an emerging practice that is claimed to yield many benefits to software development projects, among which is higher quality of the software product itself. Yet there is little empirically grounded ...
  • Yu, Yijun; Franqueira, Virginia N.L.; Tun, Thein Than; Wieringa, Roel J; Nuseibeh, Bashar (Elsevier, 2015)
    Computer-based systems are increasingly being exposed to evolving security threats, which often reveal new vulnerabilities. A formal analysis of the evolving threats is difficult due to a number of practical considerations ...
  • Effler, Simon; Kelly, Anthony; Halton, Mark; Rinne, Karl (IEEE Computer Society, 2008)
    Generalized Predictive Control (GPC) offers a method of designing digital compensators directly in the discrete time domain. In this paper, an automatic design process based on the optimization of a few GPC parameters ...
  • Ó Cinnéide, Mel; Boyle, Dermot; Hemati-Moghadam, Iman (IEEE Computer Society, 2011)
    Current software practice places a strong emphasis on unit testing, to the extent that the amount of test code produced on a project can exceed the amount of actual application code required. This illustrates the importance ...
  • Hemati-Moghadam, Iman; Ó Cinnéide, Mel (IEEE Computer Society, 2012)
    Software systems that undergo repeated addition of functionality commonly suffer a loss of quality in their underlying designs, termed design erosion. This leads to the maintenance of a system becoming increasingly ...
  • Joorabchi, Arash; Mahdi, Abdulhussain E (Emerald, 2009)
    Purpose - With the significant growth in electronic education materials such as syllabus documents and lecture notes, available on the internet and intranets, there is a need for robust central repositories of such materials ...
  • Deeptimahanti, Deva Kumar; Ali Babar, Muhammad (IEEE Computer Society, 2009)
    This paper describes a domain independent tool, named, UML Model Generator from Analysis of Requirements (UMGAR), which generates UML models like the Use-case Diagram, Analysis class model, Collaboration diagram and Design ...
  • Portillo-Domínguez, Andrés Omar; Wang, Miao; Murphy, John; Magoni, Damien (IEEE Computer Society, 2014)
    Cloud computing is causing a paradigm shift in the provision and use of software. This has changed the way of obtaining, managing and delivering computing services and solutions. Similarly, it has brought new challenges ...
  • Gacitua-Decar, Veronica; Pahl, Claus (IEEE Computer Society, 2009)
    Designing the adequate scope and granularity of services is critical for their effective reuse. Patterns at business process level are abstractions of common and reusable designs to operate businesses. Business Process ...
  • Joorabchi, Arash; Mahdi, Abdulhussain E (2008)
    With the significant growth in available electronic education materials such as syllabus documents and lecture notes on the Internet and intranets there is a need for developing efficient indexing/categorizing mechanisms ...
  • Ayala-Rivera, Vanessa; Vanessa, Liam; Thorpe, Christina (Springer, 2016)
    Concept hierarchies are widely used in multiple fields to carry out data analysis. In data privacy, they are known as Value Generalization Hierarchies (VGHs), and are used by generalization algorithms to dictate the data ...
  • Yang, Hui; Willis, Alistair; De Roeck, Anne; Nuseibeh, Bashar (Association for Computing Machinery, 2010)
    Natural language is prevalent in requirements documents. However, ambiguity is an intrinsic phenomenon of natural language, and is therefore present in all such documents. Ambiguity occurs when a sentence can be interpreted ...
  • Joorabchi, Arash; Mahdi, Abdulhussain E (Sage Publications, 2013)
    Topical annotation of documents with keyphrases is a proven method for revealing the subject of scientific and research documents to both human readers and information retrieval systems. This article describes a machine ...
  • Joorabchi, Arash; English, Michael; Mahdi, Abdulhussain E (SAGE Publications, 2015)
    The uncontrolled nature of user-assigned tags makes them prone to various inconsistencies caused by spelling variations, synonyms, acronyms, and hyponyms. These inconsistencies in turn lead to some of the common problems ...

  • Effler, Simon; Halton, Mark; Rinne, Karl (IEEE Computer Society, 2010)
    Current demands on switched-mode power supplies to deliver higher output power with improved efficiency are leading to an increased use of multi-phase power converters. With an increasing number of phases, special multi-phase ...
  • Joorabchi, Arash (University of Limerick, 2010)
    With the explosive growth in the number of electronic documents available on the internet, intranets, and digital libraries, there is a growing need for automatic systems capable of indexing and organising such large ...
  • Lamprecht, Anna-Lena; Margaria, Tiziana (2015)
    GNU R is a widely used programming language and software environment for statistical data analysis and visualization. Bioconductor [1] is a collection of bioinformatics packages that extends R's standard range of ...
  • Bilauca, Valeriu Mihai (University of Limerick, 2012)
    In this thesis we address the problem of tabular layout with a focus on automatic table layout optimization. In a world where documents are produced in both physical format and also delivered electronically to an increasing ...
  • Alahmadi, Alaa (University of Limerick, 2016)
    Automatic Text Classification (ATC) is one of the most important tasks in data mining for organizing information and knowledge discovery. The goal of ATC is to alleviate the need of manually organizing large collections ...
