  • Janota, Mikolas; Botterweck, Goetz (2008)
    If we model a family of software applications with a feature model and an architecture model, we are describing the same subject from different perspectives. Hence, we are running the risk of inconsistencies. For instance, ...
  • Espinoza, Angelina; Botterweck, Goetz; Garbajosa, Juan (Association for Computing Machinery, 2010)
    Software Product Line (SPL) Engineering has to deal with interrelated, complex models such as feature and architecture models, hence traceability is fundamental to keep them consistent. Commonly, a traceability schema must ...
  • Vassev, Emil; Hinchey, Mike; Nixon, Paddy (IEEE Computer Society, 2010)
    Intelligent swarms draw their inspiration from biology where many simple entities act independently, but when grouped, they appear to be highly organized. NASA is currently investigating swarm-based technologies for the ...
  • Bresciani, Riccardo; Butterfield, Andrew (IEEE Computer Society, 2009)
    When some agents want to communicate through a media stream (for example voice or video), the Real Time Protocol (RTP) is used. This protocol does not provide encryption, so it is necessary to use Secure RTP (SRTP) to ...
  • Black, Sue; Boca, Paul P.; Bowen, Jonathan P.; Gorman, Jason; Hinchey, Mike (IEEE Computer Society, 2009)
    The potential for combining agile and formal methods holds promise. Although it might not always be an easy partnership, it will succeed if it can foster a fruitful interchange of expertise between the two communities.
  • Fitzgerald, Brian (Blackwell Publishing, 1996)
    Systems development issues occupy a position of central importance in the information systems field and, indeed, much has been prescribed in the quest for successful systems development. However, given the well-documented ...
  • Popescu, Razvan; Staikopoulos, Athanasios; Brogi, Antonio; Liu, Peng; Clarke, Siobhán (Association for Computing Machinery, 2012)
    Advances in pervasive technology have made it possible to consider large-scale application types that potentially span heterogeneous organisations, technologies and device types. This class of application will have a ...
  • Kiniry, Joseph R. (IEEE Computer Society, 2007)
    In this extended abstract we summarize our consulting work, scientific research, and activism in the topic of electronic (computer-based) voting. The Dutch and Irish government’s activities are our particular focus, as ...
  • Quill, Nathan (University of Limerick, 2012)
    This thesis focuses on electrochemical pore formation in n-InP in KOH. A model for pore growth along the <111>A crystallographic directions was previously developed in our group. It is shown how an understanding of this ...
  • Fowler, Andrew C; Kopteva, Natalia; Oakley, Charles (Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics, 2006)
    We consider a deterministic model of landscape evolution through the mechanism of overland flow over an erodible substrate, using the St. Venant equations of hydraulics together with the Exner equation for hillslope erosion. ...
  • Jia, Lijun; Bulushev, Dmitri A; Ross, Julian R.H (Elsevier, 2016)
    The introduction of potassium carbonate into Pd/Al2O3, Pd/SiO2 and Pd/C catalysts promoted both the catalytic activities and the hydrogen selectivities for the vapor-phase formic acid decomposition, giving values of the ...
  • Armstrong, Gordon; Thornton, Roibeard F; Ryan, Michael P; Laffir, Fathima R.; Russell, Ronald J; Bala, Tanushree; Keely, Christopher; Babu, Rameesh (Springer-Verlag, 2012)
    Current interest in antimicrobial coatings is driven by an urgent need for more effective strategies to control microbial infection. In this study, antimicrobial nanoclays were prepared by ion-exchange of sodium montmorillonite ...
  • Arshak, Khalil; Jafer, Essa; Ibala, Christian Serge (IEEE Computer Society, 2007)
    The aim of this study is to design and develop a wireless sensor system integrating 24 bits analog to digital converter (ADC) and long range RF transceiver unit. The system is reading from two types of sensors, pressure ...
  • Byrne, E.M; McCarthy, Michael A; Xia, Z; Curtin, W.A (2009)
    In the discipline of nanomaterials, the outstanding mechanical properties of nanoscale fibres and tubes (carbon nanotubes or CNTs) make them highly attractive as potential reinforcing constituents in polymer, ceramic or ...
  • Romero-Ortuno, Roman; Walsh, Cathal Dominic; Lawlor, Brian A; Kenny, Rose Anne (BioMed Central, 2010)
    Background: A frailty paradigm would be useful in primary care to identify older people at risk, but appropriate metrics at that level are lacking. We created and validated a simple instrument for frailty screening in ...
  • Feller, Joseph; Fitzgerald, Brian (Association for Computing Machinery, 2000)
    Open Source Software (OSS) has become the subject of much commercial interest of late. Certainly, OSS seems to hold much promise in addressing the core issues of the software crisis, namely that of software taking too long ...
  • Ahmad, Aakash; Jamshidi, Pooyan; Pahl, Claus (Association for Computing Machinery, 2013)
    Software systems continuously evolve as a consequence of frequent changes in their functional requirements and the environment surrounding them. Architecture-centric software evolution (ACSE) enables changes in software ...
  • Fitzgerald, Brian; Adam, Frédéric (1996)
    There is much concern among IS researchers due to the failure to establish adequate conceptual and theoretical foundations, and also the lack of clear definitions of concepts and terminology in the IS field. This paper ...
  • Jamshidi, Pooyan; Ghafari, Mohammad; Ahmad, Aakash; Pahl, Claus (IEEE Computer Society, 2013)
    Context: Software systems are increasingly required to operate in an open world, characterized by continuous changes in the environment and in the prescribed requirements. Architecture-centric software evolution (ACSE) is ...
  • Agerfalk, Par J.; Fitzgerald, Brian; Holmstrom Olsson, Helena; Lings, Brian; Lundell, Bjorn; Ó Conchúir, Eoin (Austrian Computer Society, 2005)
    In this paper we present an overview of the field of distributed development of software systems and applications (DD). Based on an analysis of the published literature, we consider threats to communication, coordination ...
