  • Noll, John; Beecham, Sarah; Richardson, Ita (Association for Computing Machinery, 2010)
    While organisations recognise the advantages offered by global software development, there are many socio-technical barriers that affect successful collaboration in this inter-cultural environment. In this paper we present ...
  • Holmstrom Olsson, Helena; Ó Conchúir, Eoin; Agerfalk, Par J.; Fitzgerald, Brian (IEEE Computer Society, 2006)
    Global software development (GSD) is a phenomenon that is receiving considerable interest from companies all over the world. In GSD, stakeholders from different national and organizational cultures are involved in developing ...
  • Ó Conchúir, Eoin (University of Limerick, Department of Computer Science & Information Systems, 2010)
    Global software development (GSD) encompasses all software development where people located in different parts of the world are working together to produce software. Software development in itself is a complex process. GSD ...
  • Ó Conchúir, Eoin; Holmstrom Olsson, Helena; Agerfalk, Par J.; Fitzgerald, Brian (2006)
    In existing global software development (GSD) literature, much focus has been on identifying the challenges that practitioners may face (such as socio-cultural and temporal distance issues), while potential benefits have ...
  • Richardson, Ita; Moore, Sarah; Paulish, Daniel; Casey, Valentine; Zage, Dolores (IEEE Computer Society, 2007)
    Given the requirement for software engineering graduates to operate in Global Software Development (GSD) environments, educators need to develop teaching methods to enhance and instill GSD knowledge in their students. In ...
  • O'Sullivan, Catriona; Ahmed, Shafaat; Ryan, Kevin M. (Royal Society of Chemistry, 2008)
    A facile spin cast process is used for the instantaneous asymmetric formation of gold tips on perpendicularly aligned CdS nanorod superlattices. Tip size varies as a function of precursor solution concentration and growth ...
  • Nedos, Andronikos; Singh, Kulpreet; Cunningham, Raymond; Clarke, Siobhán (IEEE Computer Society, 2007)
    Service discovery in mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs) is an integral part for collective application interoperability. The discovery process must cope not only with transient communication but also with an environment where ...
  • Gopinath, Chennupati (University of Limerick, 2015)
    Multi-core processors are shared memory multiprocessors integrated on a single chip which offer significantly higher processing power than traditional, single core processors. However, as the number of cores available on ...
  • Hamilton, Geoff W.; Mendel-Gleason, Gavin E. (Meta2010, 2010)
    In this paper, we give a graph-based definition of the distillation transformation algorithm. This definition is made within a similar framework to the positive supercompilation algorithm, thus allowing for a more in-depth ...
  • Ahmad, Aakash; Jamshidi, Pooyan; Arshad, Muteer; Pahl, Claus (Association for Computing Machinery, 2012)
    Service architectures continuously evolve as a consequence of frequent business and technical change cycles. Architec- ture change log data represents a source of evolution-centric information in terms of intent, scope ...
  • Ahmad, Aakash; Jamshidi, Pooyan; Pahl, Claus (Springer, 2012)
    Service-based architectures have become commonplace, creating the need to address their systematic maintenance and evolution. We investigate architecture change representation, primarily focusing on the identification ...
  • Shannon, Ross; Quigley, Aaron; Nixon, Paddy (Association for Computing Machinery, 2010)
    Network visualisations use clustering approaches to simplify the presentation of complex graph structures. We present a novel application of clustering algorithms, which controls the visual arrangement of the vertices in ...
  • Franz, Sebastian; Kopteva, Natalia (Elsevier, 2012)
    We consider a singularly perturbed convection-diffusion problem posed in the unit square with a horizontal convective direction. Its solutions exhibit parabolic and exponential boundary layers. Sharp estimates of the Green's ...
  • Rigney, Caitlin (University of Limerick, 2016)
    Natural peatlands are important sinks of carbon (C) and vital in the global C cycle. Despite covering just 3% of the earth’s land mass, they store as much C as all terrestrial biomass. Drainage for forestry alters the ...
  • Ryan-Fogarty, Yvonne; O'Regan, Bernadette; Moles, Richard (Elsevier, 2016)
    The provision of healthcare creates significant environmental impacts, and their mitigation is being attempted in a variety of ways which vary from nation to nation in line with differing policy priorities and resource ...
  • Stol, Klaas-Jan; Ralph, Paul; Fitzgerald, Brian (Association for Computing Machinery, 2016)
    Grounded Theory (GT) has proved an extremely useful research approach in several fields including medical sociology, nursing, education and management theory. However, GT is a complex method based on an inductive paradigm ...
  • Agerfalk, Par J. (2004)
    The research interests of information systems (IS) researchers often lead to a tension between theory development on the one hand and practical application, such as the implementation of computer applications or business ...
  • Cole, Reena; Fowler, E; McCarthy, Conor T; Newport, David; Walsh, Michael T. (2011)
  • Butler, Áine (School of Architecture, University of Limerick, 2014)
    In this essay I will examine human’s historical interpretation of nature and how this may have influenced our modern day relationship with nature. I am intrigued by nature’s ability to benefit health and well being in ...
  • Hickey, Cian D; Sheehan, Jeremiah J.; Wilkinson, Martin G.; Auty, Mark A.E. (Frontiers, 2015)
    The growth, location, and distribution of bacterial colonies in dairy products are important factors for the ripening and flavor development of cheeses, yogurts, and soured creams. Starter, non-starter, spoilage, and ...
