  • Hamilton, Geoff W.; Jones, Neil D. (Association for Computing Machinery, 2012)
    In this paper, we provide an improved basis for the “distillation” program transformation. It is known that superlinear speedups can be obtained using distillation, but cannot be obtained by other earlier automatic ...
  • Kannan, Venkatesh; Hamilton, Geoff W. (2016)
    Program transformation techniques are commonly used to improve the e ciency of programs. While many transformation techniques aim to remove ine ciencies in the algorithms used in a program, another source of ine ciency ...
  • Zhu, Liming; Ali Babar, Muhammad (IEEE Computer Society, 2004)
    Software architecture (SA) evaluation is a quality assurance technique that is increasingly attracting significant research and commercial interests. A number of SA evaluation methods have been developed. Most of these ...
  • Coleman, Joseph (University of Limerick, 2014)
    The robotic control of tethered parafoils enables a number of exciting applications, primarily a novel approach to wind energy generation. The airborne wind energy (AWE) paradigm aims to reduce greatly the mass and cost ...
  • Cahill, Vinny; Meier, Rene; Harrington, Anthony (Trinity College Dublin, 2005)
    Integrating individual intelligent transportation systems into comprehensive platforms is a key challenge faced by transport authorities in the provision of optimal service s to users. The use of an ITS architecture ...
  • Linnane, Séan; Richardson, Ita (2006)
    As more and more software organisations continue their integration into a burgeoning global business community, the effective management of relatively new types of working arrangements, such as those enabled by virtual ...
  • Lundell, Bjorn; Lings, Brian; Agerfalk, Par J.; Fitzgerald, Brian (2006)
    There are many reasons why an organisation should consider adopting distributed development of software systems and applications, including access to a larger labour pool and a broader skills base, cost advantages, and ...
  • Solis, Carlos; Ali, Nour (IEEE Computer Society, 2010)
    In Global Software Development (GSD), distributed stakeholders (e.g. team members, customers, etc) have to collaborate and communicate in an efficient and effective way to share, create and discuss knowledge. Nowadays, a ...
  • Dusparic, Ivana; Cahill, Vinny; SFI (IEEE Computer Society, 2009)
    Large-scale agent-based systems are required to self-optimize towards multiple, potentially conflicting, policies of varying spatial and temporal scope. As a result, not all agents may be implementing all policies at all ...
  • O'Hanlon, Richard (University of Limerick, 2011)
    Sampling of the macrofungal sporocarps, ectomycorrhizal morphotypes and vascular plants was carried out in 28 plots from four forest types (ash, oak, Scot’s pine, Sitka spruce) between the years 2007 and 2009. A total ...
  • Zou, Longhao; Trestian, Ramona; Muntean, Gabriel-Miro (IEEE Computer Society, 2013)
    The growing popularity of the high-end mobile computing devices – smartphones, tablets, notebooks and more – equipped with high-speed network access, enables the mobile user to watch multimedia content from any source on ...
  • Parnas, David Lorge (2003)
    Testing is sometimes viewed as an add on step in software development - something you do to demonstrate that the product is ready for use. Test planning is often postponed until the development is near its end. This results ...
  • Lohan, Garry; Acton, Thomas (European, Mediterranean and Middle Eastern Conference on Information Systems (EMCIS), 2013)
    Newer information systems development approaches such as agile methods, which emphasize a sense-and-respond approach, increase the number of operating decisions made regularly within the development team. These methods are ...
  • de Eyto, Adam; McMahon, Muireann; Muller, K; Wever, Renee; DeWerk, G; Overschie, Mariette (2013)
    Education for sustainable development fundamentally calls for a change in the way we educate (teaching methodologies), what we teach (the curriculum and subject matter), and why we do it (learning outcomes & professional ...
  • Caulfield, Irene; Power, Norah (2006)
    The aim of this paper is to explore effective marketoriented requirements engineering practices in automotive aftermarket software development. We present a real world case study of how a particular combination of ...
  • Wilson, Cáthál (University of Limerick, 2013)
    The focus of this thesis is to determine if there exists a set of dynamically available dominant, operational, ex-post performance measures for owner managed SMEs (small and medium enterprises). There is a predominance of ...
  • McSweeney, W; Lotty, O; Mogili, Naga Vishnu V; Glynn, C; Geaney, H; Tanner, D.A; Holmes, Justin D.; O'Dwyer, C (American Institute of Physics, 2013)
    By using Si(100) with different dopant type (n(++)-type (As) or p-type (B)), we show how metal-assisted chemically etched (MACE) nanowires (NWs) can form with rough outer surfaces around a solid NW core for p-type NWs, and ...
  • O'Connell, Karen; Kelly, Siobhan; Kinsella, Katie; Jordan, Sinead; Kenny, Orla; Murphy, David; Heffernan, Eric; O'Laoide, Risteard; O'Shea, Donal; McKenna, Carmel; Cassidy, Lorraine; Fletcher, Jean; Walsh, Cathal Dominic; Brady, Jennifer; McGuigan, Christopher; Tubridy, Niall; Hutchinson, Michael (BioMed Central, 2013)
    There is increasing evidence linking vitamin D deficiency to both susceptibility to, and severity of, multiple sclerosis (MS). Patients with the clinically isolated syndrome represent the initial presentation of a demyelinating ...
  • Dowling, Peter (School of Architecture, University of Limerick, 2015)
    We as architects tend to avoid the question of the act of building, the motion of machines the action of cranes, the force of trucks and the labour of people, in this act we manipulate nature to fit our needs as a society ...
  • Bragard, Quentin; Ventresque, Anthony; Murphy, Liam (2013)
    Microscopic urban mobility simulations consist of modelling a city's road network and infrastructure, and to run autonomous individual vehicles to understand accurately what is going on in the city. However, when the ...
