  • Dobson, Simon (IEEE Computer Society, 2007)
    Autonomic systems present unique design challenges, in that their individual adaptive components may interact in complex ways which defeat traditional approaches to design, analysis and implementation. We argue for a ...
  • O'Neill, Eleanor; McGlinn, Kris; Lewis, David; Bailey, Eoin; Dobson, Simon; McCarthy, Kevin (Association for Computing Machinery, 2009)
    Research on context aware systems is handicapped by the lack of readily available large scale data sets, as well as by the lack of tools by which researchers can interact effectively with such data sets across a range ...
  • Razzaque, Mohammed Abhur; Dobson, Simon; Nixon, Paddy (American Scientific Publishers, 2006)
    Pervasive computing environments are dynamic and heterogeneous. They are required to be self-managing and autonomic, demanding minimal user’s guidance. In pervasive computing, contextaware adaptation is a key concept ...
  • Razzaque, Mohammed Abhur; Dobson, Simon; Nixon, Paddy (IEEE Computer Society, 2007)
    Pervasive and autonomic environments make extensive use of contextual information to guide adaptations to changing external demands and circumstances. Context takes many forms, and some form of categorisation of information ...
  • Razzaque, Mohammed Abhur; Dobson, Simon; Nixon, Paddy (Springer, 2007)
    Layered architectures are not flexible enough to cope with the dynamics of wireless dominated next generation communications. Cross-layer architectures may provide a more flexible solution: breaks the traditional structure ...
  • Stabeler, Matthew; Cellai, Davide; Dobson, Simon (IEEE Computer Society, 2009)
    We propose a prototype for a real-world, human network proximity experiment with detailed recordings of the position of individuals. Our aim is to provide a comprehensive dataset to investigate the internal correlations ...
  • Dobson, Simon (IEEE Computer Society, 2008)
    While it is desirable for all computing and communications systems to have well-defined and verifiable behaviour, autonomic systems must additionally guarantee that their adaptive behaviour is correct, both in the sense ...
  • Dobson, Simon; Bailey, Eoin; Knox, Stephen; Shannon, Ross; Quigley, Aaron; SFI (IEEE Computer Society, 2007)
    Control systems must increasingly be designed to involve collections of hardware and software components, both of which may evolve over the lifetime of the system, and which are expected to provide self-managing, adaptive, ...
  • Martinez, Josu; Dobson, Simon (2009)
    Autonomic computing aims to provide self-management and adaptation in the implementation of complex (large, heterogeneous, distributed) systems over time. Such adaptations must be stable, in the sense of maintaining the ...
  • Dobson, Simon; Farragher, Linda (Trinity College Dublin, Department of Computer Science, 2000)
    Most modern programming languages are complex and feature rich. Whilst this is (sometimes) an advantage for industrial-strength applications, it complicates both language teaching and language research. We describe our ...
  • 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 ...
  • Clear, Adrian K.; Shannon, Ross; Holland, Thomas; Quigley, Aaron; Dobson, Simon; Nixon, Paddy (Springer, 2009)
    One of the key challenges faced when developing context- aware pervasive systems is to capture the set of inputs that we want a system to adapt to. Arbitrarily specifying ranges of sensor values to respond to will lead ...
  • Knox, Stephen; Clear, Adrian K.; Shannon, Ross; Coyle, Lorcan; Dobson, Simon; Quigley, Aaron; Nixon, Paddy (2007)
    Context-aware systems that rely on mobile devices for user interaction must address the low bandwidth of both communications and more importantly the user’s limited attention, which will typically be split between several ...
  • Dobson, Simon (Springer-verlang, 2007)
    Ambient intelligence involves synthesising data from a range of sources in order to exhibit meaningful adaptive behaviour without explicit user direction, driven by inputs from largely independent devices and data sources. ...
