  • Coleman, Gerry (IEEE Computer Society, 2005)
    In adopting a software process model, many small software companies are ignoring standard process models and models for process improvement. This study uses an empirical approach to investigate what processes software ...
  • English, Michael; Buckley, Jim; Cahill, Tony (IEEE Computer Society, 2005)
    A commonly held belief is that the friend construct in C++ is a violation of encapsulation. However, little empirical analysis of its use has taken place to provide evidence to support this claim. This paper presents a ...
  • Vázquez, Lucía Morado (University of Limerick, 2012)
    In the area of localisation there is a constant pressure to automate processes in order to reduce the cost and time associated with the ever growing workload. One of the main approaches to achieve this objective is to reuse ...
  • Buckley, Jim; O'Brien, Michael P.; Power, Norah (2006)
    Several authors have proposed information seeking as an appropriate perspective for studying software maintenance activities. However, there is little research in the literature describing holistic information-seeking ...
  • O'Brien, Michael P.; Buckley, Jim; Exton, Chris (IEEE Computer Society, 2005)
    It is the view of many computer scientists that the standard of empirical software engineering research leaves scope for improvement. However, there is also an increasing awareness in the software engineering community ...
  • Power, Ken; Morgan, Lorraine; Conboy, Kieran (XP2010, 2010)
    In much the same way that XP and agile development radically changed the software development landscape, Open Innovation is transforming how organizations manage their innovation processes. In a traditional ‘closed innovation’ ...
  • Jamniczky-Kaszas, Dora (University of Limerick, Department of Chemical and Environmental Sciences, 2010)
    Environmental and legislative constraints regarding sludge disposal, such as its application on agricultural land, stimulate research in this area. Since municipalities are responsible for sludge disposal and finance it ...
  • Connolly, Michael (University of Limerick, 2014)
    The undertaken project is a case study, focusing primarily on the energy efficiency improvement of an industrial partner in the food processing industry through the recovery of low grade waste heat. An analysis of the ...
  • Hernandez, Jamie Rojas (University of Limerick, 2011)
    The aim of this investigation was to minimise the energy requirement of autothermal thermophilic aerobic digestion (ATAD) systems while complying with treatment objectives. Due to the discontinuous, semi-batch nature of ...
  • Karakehayov, Z.; Vassev, Emil (IEEE Computer Society, 2011)
    Reducing power consumption is an important design objective in energy-constrained embedded and mobile systems. Such systems must be designed to meet functional and often timing requirements facing the challenge of energy ...
  • De la Guia Solaz, Manuel (University of Limerick, 2011)
    Multipliers are present in almost all Digital Signal Processing systems. They are area and power demanding structures that constrain the timing and resolution parameters of the entire DSP unit, making the implementation ...
  • Doherty, Gavin; Coyle, David; Sharry, John (Association for Computing Machinery, 2012)
    Online mental health interventions can benefit people experiencing a range of psychological difficulties, but attrition is a major problem in real-world deployments. We discuss strategies to reduce attrition, and ...
  • Cullinane, Kay; Cosgrove, Tom (Irish Transport Research Network, 2013)
    As 'Ireland's Smarter Travel Demonstration City' Limerick is charged with piloting ways to convince its citizens to move around their city in a more sustainable way, in particular to walk, cycle and use public transport ...
  • Omoronyia, Inah; Cavallaro, Luca; Salehie, Mazeiar; Pasquale, Liliana; Nuseibeh, Bashar (Association for Computing Machinery, 2013)
    Applications that continuously gather and disclose personal information about users are increasingly common. While disclosing this information may be essential for these applications to function, it may also raise privacy ...
  • Ryan, Kevin (IEEE Computer Society, 2008)
    Information and communication technologies, particularly software, play a crucial role in the Republic of Ireland's remarkable economic growth. Successful globalization has posed many challenges and fostered a major strategic ...
  • Nolan, Clifford J.; Cheney, Margaret; Dowling, Thomas; Gaburro, Romina (Institute of Physics Publishing, 2006)
    Multiply scattered waves are often neglected in imaging methods; largely because of the inability of popular algorithms to deal with the associated nonlinear models. This paper shows that by incorporating a known environment ...
  • Devadoss, A; Spehar-Déleze, A.M; Tanner, D.A; Bertoncello, P; Marthi, R; Keyes, T.E; Foster, R.J (2010)
    Water-soluble 4-(dimethylamino) pyridine (DMAP) stabilized gold nanoparticles (DMAP-AuNP) were synthesized by ligand exchange and phase transfer (toluene/water). The DMAP-AuNPs are positively charged with the core diameter ...
  • Gaburro, Romina; Nolan, Clifford J. (American Institute of Mathematical Sciences, 2008)
    Many imaging methods involve probing a material with a wave and observing the back-scattered wave. The back-scattered wave measurements are used to compute an image of the internal structure of the material. Many of the ...
  • Venkatesan, Munuswamy; Varadaraju, Upadhyayula V.; Douvalis, Alexios P.; Fitzgerald, Ciara B.; Rhen, Fernando M.F.; Coey, John Michael David (Royal Society of Chemistry, 2002)
    A novel method of producing magnetoresistive oxides is described, which involves low temperature combustion synthesis from a mixture of nitrates and fuel, as applied to Sr2FeMoO6. The method yields ceramics with a fine ...
  • Frawley, Patrick J; Prendergast, Niall (Dublin Institute of Technology: Tempus Publications, 2014)
    In student feedback, many students expressed difficulty with the concepts being taught. There was a difficulty with quick, in-class retrieval of information. To facilitate transfer, understanding and retention of knowledge ...
