  • Kroll, Josiane; Richardson, Ita; Audy, Jorge L.N.; Fernandez, Jude (IEEE Computer Society, 2014)
    In Follow-the-sun (FTS) software projects, handoffs are performed at the beginning and the end of each working day shift. Handoff efficiency is determined by the quality of knowledge transfer and the length of time ...
  • Richardson, Ita; Avram, Gabriela; Deshpande, Sadhana; Casey, Valentine (IEEE Computer Society, 2008)
    In a globalised world economy, small and mediumsized companies (SMEs) are now entering the global software engineering (GSE) arena, but their involvement is more often opportunistic than carefully planned. Considered until ...
  • McInerney, Clare (Springer-Verlag, 2010)
    There has been a decline in the number of students studying mathematics, science and computing at third-level in Ireland. This may be because Ireland does not have a computing curriculum. However, in the UK higher education ...
  • 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 ...
  • Stol, Klaas-Jan; Fitzgerald, Brian (Association for Computing Machinery, 2015)
    Empirical research studies are the principal mechanism through which the software engineering research community studies and learns from software engineering practice. The focus on empirical studies has increased ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • Dobson, Simon; Nixon, Paddy; Coyle, Lorcan (IEEE Computer Software Society, 2007)
    Event-based systems are a popular substrate for distributing information derived from sensors to be used in driving adaptive behaviour. This paper argues that using events directly provides a poor model of context, and ...
  • Fitzgerald, Brian; Lang, Michael (IEEE Computer Society, 2005)
    Are hypermedia projects guided and controlled by ad hoc, “quick & dirty” techniques? This survey shows that talk of a “crisis” is largely unfounded.
  • Slyngstad, Odd Peter Nord; Li, Jingyue; Conradi, Reidar; Ali Babar, Muhammad (Springer, 2008)
    Software risk management studies commonly focus on project level risks and strategies. Software architecture investigations are often concerned with the design, implementation and maintenance of the architecture. However, ...
  • Stol, Klaas-Jan; Avgeriou, Paris; Ali Babar, Muhammad (2010)
    Open Source Software (OSS) is increasingly used in product development. Besides some much-reported benefits of this approach, using OSS products also presents new challenges. One such challenge is identifying relevant, ...
  • Niazi, Mahmood; Ali Babar, Muhammad (Elsevier, 2009)
    Objective: In this paper, we present findings from an empirical study that was aimed at identifying the lative ‘‘perceived value” of CMMI level 2 specific practices based on the perceptions and experiences of practitioners ...
  • Lane, Michael; Fitzgerald, Brian; Agerfalk, Par J. (European Conference on Information Systems (ECIS), 2012)
    Agile software development (ASD) has emerged as a practice-led initiative which offers great promise in improving software productivity. However some confusion exists as to its relationship with Lean Software Development ...
  • Biffl, Stefan; Ali Babar, Muhammad; Winkler, Dietmar (2008)
    Software and systems architecture is a success-critical issue in software projects. Changing nonfunctional quality requirements, e.g., performance, modifiability, and maintainability, can have strong impact on software ...
  • Casey, Valentine; Richardson, Ita (IEEE Computer Society, 2008)
    Distributed software development has become the norm for the software industry today. As a result many organizations are leveraging the expertise of their existing staff by establishing virtual teams. Here we outline the ...
  • Ali Babar, Muhammad; Kitchenham, Barbara (IEEE Computer Society, 2007)
    Background: An important element in scenario-based architecture evaluation is the development of scenario profiles by stakeholders working in groups. In practice groups can vary in size from 2 to 20 people. Currently, there ...
