  • Mc Caffery, Fergal; Casey, Valentine; Mc Hugh, Martin (2011)
    Today the amount of software content within medical devices has grown considerably and will continue to do so as the level of complexity of medical devices continues to increase. This is driven by the fact that software ...
  • Gleeson, James P.; Melnik, Sergey; Hackett, Adam W. (American Physical Society, 2010)
    The question of how clustering (nonzero density of triangles) in networks affects their bond percolation threshold has important applications in a variety of disciplines. Recent advances in modeling highly clustered networks ...
  • Huo, Ming; Verner, June; Ali Babar, Muhammad; Zhu, Liming (2004)
    Software quality is one of our most important software concerns. Agile methods may produce software faster but we also need to know how they meet our quality requirements. In this paper we compare the waterfall model ...
  • Hagan, Kerry L (Electroacoustic Music Studies Network, 2014)
    This paper is predicated on the argument that real-time computer-generated music exists on a spectrum of liveness . First, a brief discussion of liveness situates the question of liveness in real-time computer music. Then, ...
  • Morgan, Lorraine; Finnegan, Patrick (2007)
    Much of the assessment of OSS benefits and drawbacks has been based on anecdotal evidence appearing in practitioner publications. Due to its focus on software development, such work neglects whether managerial perceptions ...
  • Kiri, Victor A; MacKenzie, Gilbert (Bentham Science Publishers, 2009)
    Although cohort studies which are based on intention-to-treat (ITT) approach offer a simple design with data which are simpler to analyse and results easier to interpret, such studies also intrinsically assume that any ...
  • Janota, Mikolas; Botterweck, Goetz; Grigore, Radu; Marques-Silva, Joao (Springer-Verlag, 2010)
    When configuring customizable software, it is useful to provide interactive tool-support that ensures that the configuration does not breach given constraints. But, when is a configuration complete and how can the tool ...
  • Sweetman, Roger; O'Dwyer, Orla; Conboy, Kieran (Engineers Ireland, 2012)
    The current difficult economic conditions place organisations under greater pressure than ever to increase performance and achieve efficiencies. In such times, organisations must ensure the portfolio of engineering ...
  • Ryan, Anna (University College Cork, Department of Geography, 2004)
  • Bannon, Liam (Elsevier, 2004)
    Prologue I first met Niels Bjørn-Andersen when we were both on the International Programme Committee for an EU Conference on the Information Society chaired by Enid Mumford (Bjørn-Andersen et al., 1982). In 1985, I met ...
  • Fitzgerald, Jeannie; Ryan, Conor (2013)
    In Machine Learning classification tasks, the class imbalance problem is an important one which has received a lot of attention in the last few years. In binary classification, class imbalance occurs when there ...
  • Marinescu, Andrei; Harris, Colin; Dusparic, Ivana; Cahill, Vinny; Clarke, Siobhán (IEEE Computer Society, 2014)
    Microgrid management and scheduling can considerably benefit from day-ahead demand forecasting. Until now, most of the research in the field of electrical demand forecasting has been done on large-scale systems, such ...
  • Yang, Hui; Willis, Alistair; De Roeck, Anne; Nuseibeh, Bashar (Libertas Academica, 2012)
    We describe the Open University team’s submission to the 2011 i2b2/VA/Cincinnati Medical Natural Language Processing Challenge, Track 2 Shared Task for sentiment analysis in suicide notes. This Shared Task focused on the ...
  • Pluska, Michal; Sinclair, David (2010)
    Around ninety percent of vehicle innovations are driven mainly by electronics. The software implementing control algorithms combines the sensor values and calculates some meaningful actuator signals. On the other hand ...
  • Wang, Shen; Djahel, Soufiene; McManis, Jennifer (2013)
    Nowadays, the rapid rise of the number of vehicles on the roads has led to several challenging problems for road authorities, such as traffic congestion, increasing number of accidents and air pollution. According to ...
  • Buglione, Luigi; Hauck, Jean Carlo R.; Gresse von Wangenheim, Christiane; Mc Caffery, Fergal (2012)
    Estimation represents one of the most critical processes for any project and it is highly dependent on the quality of requirements elicitation and management. Therefore, the management of requirements should be prioritised ...
  • Dobson, Simon; Nixon, Paddy; Coyle, Lorcan (IEEE Computer Software Society, 2007)
    Event-based systems are a popular substrate for distributing information derived from sensors to be used in driving adaptive behaviour. This paper argues that using events directly provides a poor model of context, and ...
  • McArdle, Shane; Leahy, J.J.; Curtin, Teresa; Tanner, D.A (Elsevier, 2014)
    It had been reported that in order to improve oil hydrogenation catalysts the geometric or electronic effects of the catalysts must be manipulated in order to achieve the desired activity or selectivity. To achieve this, ...
  • Gordon, Andrew (University of Limerick, 2013)
    Polymer electrolyte fuel cells (PEFCs) are versatile electrochemical devices that convert the chemical energy of a fuel, such as hydrogen, and an oxidant, such as air-derived oxygen, directly into electricity, both cleanly ...
  • Chadwick, E.G; Clarkin, O.M; Tanner, D.A (Springer, 2010)
    Studies into bone-like apatite or hydroxyapatite (HA) growth on potential biomaterials when in contact with simulated body fluid (SBF) not only establish a general method for determining bioactivity but coincidently lead ...
