  • Buda, Teodora Sandra; Cerqueus, Thomas; Murphy, John; Kristiansen, Morten (Springer, 2013)
    Database sampling has become a popular approach to handle large amounts of data in a wide range of application areas such as data mining or approximate query evaluation. Using database samples is a potential solution ...
  • Vidgen, Richard; Wang, Xiaofeng (INFORMS (Institute for Operations Research and Management Sciences), 2009)
    Despite the popularity of agile methods in software development and increasing adoption by organizations there is debate about what agility is and how it is achieved. The debate suffers from a lack of understanding of agile ...
  • Moroney, Kevin M.; Lee, William T.; O'Brien, Stephen B.G.; Suijver, Freek; Marra, Johan (SpringerOpen, 2016)
    The extraction of coffee solubles from roasted and ground coffee is a complex operation, the understanding of which is key to the brewing of high quality coffee. This complexity stems from the fact that brewing of coffee ...
  • O'Hanlon, Grace (University of Limerick, 2014)
    Some researchers have posited that deficits in underlying cognitive-linguistic abilities such as auditory discrimination, pattern recognition or rule derivation underlie some types of speech sound disorder (SSD). However, ...
  • Young, John; Meagher, David; MacLullich, Alasdair J (BMJ Publishing Group, 2011)
    Cognitive assessment involves examination of higher cortical functions, particularly memory, attention, orientation, language, executive function (planning activities), and praxis (sequencing of activities). This article ...
  • O'Sullivan, Kieran; Dankaerts, Wim; O'Sullivan, Leonard; O'Sullivan, Peter B (American Physical Therapy Association, 2015)
    Background. Multiple dimensions across the biopsychosocial spectrum are relevant in the management of nonspecific chronic low back pain (NSCLBP). Cognitive functional therapy is a behaviorally targeted intervention that ...
  • Zeng, Liaoyuan; McGrath, Sean; Liu, Guanghui (SpringerOpen, 2014)
    A critical objective of cognitive radio (CR) system is to enhance the spectrum efficiency, and one of the key factors that can determine the spectrum efficiency is the system spectrum sensing performance with respect to ...
  • Halpin, Brendan; O'Donoghue, Cathal (Department of Sociology, University of Limerick, 2004)
    Cohabitation has grown strongly in Ireland over the last decade. We use large-scale surveys to characterise its extent and nature. We find it has almost tripled in incidence between 1994 and 2002. It is associated with ...
  • Tanner, David A; Robinson, J.S; Cudd, Richard L (Trans Tech Publications, 2000)
    7010 is one of the high strength aluminium alloys used mainly as plate and forgings in the aerospace industry. Its high strength is achieved through a quenching operation where the material is rapidly cooled from the ...
  • Shannon, Ross; Quigley, Aaron; Nixon, Paddy (Association for Computing Machinery, 2006)
    As visualizations of large systems get more and more complex, larger collaborative spaces are required so that a team of designers may work together while visualising their system. This paper describes the outfitting ...
  • Feller, Joseph; Fitzgerald, Brian; Hissam, Scott; Lakhani, Karim (Association for Computing Machinery, 2005)
    Building on the success of the first three workshops in the series, which were held at ICSE 2001 (Toronto), ICSE 2002 (Orlando) and ICSE 2003 (Portland), the 4th Workshop on Open Source Software Engineering, ("Collaboration, ...
  • Penades, Maria Carmen; Borges, Marcos R.S.; Vivacqua, Adriana; Canos, Jose H.; Solis, Carlos (2011)
    Emergency plans are fundamental for the speedy and effective response in disaster situations. Plans are often constructed by teams of experts, who apply their expertise to define response procedures, but lack part of ...
  • Salkham, As'ad; Cunningham, Raymond; Garg, Anurag; Cahill, Vinny (IEEE Computer Society, 2008)
    The high growth rate of vehicles per capita now poses a real challenge to efficient Urban Traffic Control (UTC). An efficient solution to UTC must be adaptive in order to deal with the highly-dynamic nature of urban ...
  • Dowling, Jim; Cunningham, Raymond; Curran, Eoin; Cahill, Vinny (IEEE Computer Society, 2004)
    This paper introduces Collaborative Reinforcement Learning (CRL), a coordination model for solving system-wide optimisation problems in distributed systems where there is no support for global state. In CRL the autonomic ...
