  • Finn, Patrick M. (University of Limerick, 2011)
    As part of a European Union climate change and energy package that aims to reduce greenhouse gases by 20%, reach 20% penetration of renewable energy, and improve energy efficiency by 20% by 2020, Ireland has committed ...
  • Morgan, Lorraine; Conboy, Kieran (2013)
    While it is widely acknowledged that cloud computing has the potential to transform a large part of the IT industry, issues surrounding the adoption of cloud computing have received relatively little attention. Drawing on ...
  • O'Connell, Barry M; McGloughlin, Timothy M.; Walsh, Michael T. (BioMed Central, 2010)
    Coronary artery disease can be treated by implanting a stent into the blocked region of an artery, thus enabling blood perfusion to distal vessels. Minimally invasive procedures of this nature often result in damage to ...
  • Frohburg, Jan (Universidade de Coimbra: Departamento de Arquitetura, 2013)
    “How do you deal with students that are in danger of failing?” This was one of the more memorable questions during my job interview at the University of Limerick. As lecturers we might share, and in fact we do to a ...
  • Moore, Thomas D.; Jarvis, John L. (IEEE Computer Society, 2001)
    This paper examines one of the common modes of structural failure in multichip ball grid arrays (BGAs), determines its locations within the package structure, relates it to the stresses generated in the reliability tests ...
  • Li, Xi; Ventresque, Anthony; Murphy, John; Thorburn, James (IEEE Computer Society, 2014)
    Data center optimization, mainly through virtual machine (VM) placement, has received considerable attention in the past years. A lot of heuristics have been proposed to give quick and reasonably good solutions to this ...
  • Hinchey, Mike (IEEE Computer Society, 2011)
    NASA is developing plans for innovative and novel approaches to future (unmanned) space exploration missions. Future missions involve sending spacecraft and robots to harsh environments, where resilience is necessary for ...
  • Djahel, Soufiene; Zhang, Zonghua; Naït-Abdesselam, Farid; Murphy, John (IEEE Computer Society, 2012)
    In this paper, we deal with backoff cheating technique in IEEE802.11 based MANETs and propose a novel scheme, dubbed HsF-MAC (Hash Function based MAC protocol), to cope with it. In contrast to the existing solutions, ...
  • Cleary, Jimmy; Callanan, Owen; Purcell, Mark; Gregg, David (Association for Computing Machinery, 2013)
    For most multi-threaded applications, data structures must be shared between threads. Ensuring thread safety on these data structures incurs overhead in the form of locking and other synchronization mechanisms. Where data ...
  • Gaudin, Benoit; Vassev, Emil; Hinchey, Mike; Nixon, Paddy; Coelho, Garcia J.; Maalej, Walid (Szkoła Wyższa Psychologii Społecznej (SWPS), 2012)
    One of the main objectives of self-adaptive systems is to reduce maintenance costs through automatic adaptation. Self-healing is a self-adapting property that helps systems return to a normal state after a fault or ...
  • Sinnott, Margaret; Kinsley, Brendan T; Jackson, Abaigeal D; Walsh, Cathal Dominic; O'Grady, Tony; Nolan, John J; Gaffney, Peter; Boran, Gerard; Kelleher, Cecily; Carr, Bernadette (Public Library of Science, 2015)
    Type 2 diabetes has a long pre clinical asymptomatic phase. Early detection may delay or arrest disease progression. The Diabetes Mellitus and Vascular health initiative (DMVhi) was initiated as a prospective longitudinal ...
  • Ahmad, Hammad (University of Limerick, 2009)
    This research work focuses on the design and implementation of control law and control allocation for overactuated, nonlinear model of commercial aircraft (B747-200). The redundancies in this aircraft are exploited to ...
  • English, Michael; Exton, Chris; Cleary, Brendan; Rigon, Irene (Association for Computing Machinery, 2009)
    Software maintenance continues to be a time and resource intensive activity. Any efforts that help to address the maintenance bottleneck within the software lifecycle are welcome. One area where such e orts are useful is ...
  • Egan, Brian; McCarthy, Conor T; McCarthy, Michael A (2013)
  • Kroll, Josiane; Prikladnicki, Rafael; Audy, Jorge L.N.; Carmel, Erran; Fernandez, Jude (2013)
    Follow-the-sun (FTS) is a strategy for Global Software Development (GSD) where you hand off work at the end of every day from one site to the next, many time zones away, in order to speed up product development. Companies ...
  • Botterweck, Goetz; Lee, Kwanwoo (2009)
    In this position paper, we discuss feature dependencies as one major challenge in product line engineering. We suggest that (1) feature dependencies should be treated as first class entities and (2) dependencies in various ...
  • Liu, Yu; Meier, Rene (University of Oslo, 2008)
    Feature interaction describes a situation where the combination of two or more services that individually perform correctly results in unexpected and possibly adverse behaviour. Such feature interaction issues have first ...
  • Lee, Kwanwoo; Botterweck, Goetz; Thiel, Steffen (IEEE Computer Society, 2009)
    Feature modeling is an essential activity for modeling and managing the variability of a software product line. On the other hand, aspect-oriented programming provides effective means for modularizing feature implementation. ...
  • Bennaceur, Amel; McCormick, Ciaran; Galán, Jesús García; Perera, Charith; Smith, Andrew; Zisman, Andrea; Nuseibeh, Bashar (Association for Computing Machinery, 2016)
    The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to deliver improved quality of life for citizens, through pervasive connectivity and quanti ed monitoring of devices, people, and their environ- ment. As such, the IoT presents a ...
  • Schena, Emiliano; Tosi, Daniele; Saccomandi, Paola; Lewis, Elfed; Kim, Taesung (MDPI, 2016)
    During recent decades, minimally invasive thermal treatments (i.e., Radiofrequency ablation, Laser ablation, Microwave ablation, High Intensity Focused Ultrasound ablation, and Cryo-ablation) have gained widespread ...
