  • Indino, Ivano (University of Limerick, 2017)
    Ivano Indino Scan testing has been the preferred method used for testing large digital integrated circuits for many decades and many electronic design automation (EDA) tools vendors provide support for inserting scan ...
  • Sharif, Khaironi Yatim (University of Limerick, 2012)
    Several authors have proposed information seeking as an important perspective for the study of software maintenance and evolution, and have characterized information seeking empirically in commercial software evolution ...
  • Fitzgerald, Brian (IEEE Computer Society, 2011)
    Open source software can elicit strongly contrasting reactions. Advocates claim that OSS is high-quality software produced on a rapid time scale and for free or at very low cost by extremely talented developers. At the ...
  • Barlas, Panagiotis; Heavey, Cathal; Dagkakis, Georgios (D A A A M International Vienna, 2015)
    Discrete Event Simulation (DES) is one of the most effective tools for planning, designing and improving material flows in production. One of the main weaknesses of operating DES is the exertion needed and costs spent on ...
  • Dobson, Simon; Nixon, Paddy (IEEE Computer Society, 2008)
    Treating autonomic systems as solving individual, isolated problems misses the opportunity to consider adaptation as an object of study in its own right. We propose a grand challenge of supporting adaptation in an open ...
  • Buron, Javier; Sánchez, Magda (University of Limerick, 2015)
    Self-build as a social tool: Communities need collective spaces to gather for group activities and social support. The lack of a collective space to meet, discuss and perform group activities, especially at the early ...

  • Yu, Yijun; Tun, Thein Than; Tedeschi, Alessandra; Nuseibeh, Bashar (IEEE Computer Society, 2011)
    When software systems are verified against security requirements, formal and informal arguments provide a structure for organizing the software artifacts. Our recent work on the evolution of security-critical software ...
  • Clohessy, Trevor; Acton, Thomas (2013)
    This paper describes research-in-progress that explores the applicability and implications of cloud computing in the creation of business value through open innovation. Both the cloud computing and open innovation paradigms ...
  • O'Súilleabháin, Páraic.; Howard, Siobhan.; Hughes, Brian M. (Public Library of Science, 2018)

  • O'Brien, Jamie (University of Limerick, 2012)
    The primary aim of this dissertation is to operationalise a Knowledge Assessment Framework (KAF) using two exploratory case studies. The development of a KAF is important for organisations for three reasons. Firstly, the ...
  • Meisel, Hans; Fitzgerald, Richard J. (Cambridge University Press, 2000)
    Opioid agonistic and antagonistic peptides which are inactive within the sequence of the precursor milk proteins can be released and thus activated by enzymatic proteolysis, for example during gastrointestinal digestion ...
