User interface design for situation-aware decision support systems. (2012)
Conference Proceeding
NWIABU, N., ALLISON, I., HOLT, P., LOWIT, P. and OYENEYIN, B. 2012. User interface design for situation-aware decision support systems. In Proceedings of the 2012 IEEE international multi-disciplinary conference on cognitive methods in situation awareness and decision support (CogSIMA 2012), 6-8 March 2012, New Orleans, USA. New York: IEEE [online], article number 6188405, pages 332-339. Available from: https://doi.org/10.1109/CogSIMA.2012.6188405

Information recall about general situations incurs memory and cognitive loads on operators. Recognition of information for specific situations identified with users context and the state of the world is helpful to operators in performing tasks in com...

Case-based situation awareness. (2012)
Conference Proceeding
NWIABU, N., ALLISON, I., HOLT, P., LOWIT, P. and OYENEYIN, B. 2012. Case-based situation awareness. In Proceedings of the 2012 IEEE international multi-disciplinary conference on cognitive methods in situation awareness and decision support (CogSIMA 2012), 6-8 March 2012, New Orleans, USA. New York: IEEE [online], article number 6188388, pages 22-29. Available from: https://doi.org/10.1109/CogSIMA.2012.6188388

Situation-aware case-based decision support (SACBDS) systems comprise two distinct parts: situation awareness (SA) and case-based reasoning (CBR). The SA part keeps a finite history of the time space information of the domain and uses rules to interp... Read More about Case-based situation awareness..

Situation awareness in context-aware case-based decision support. (2011)
Conference Proceeding
NWIABU, N., ALLISON, I., HOLT, P., LOWIT, P. and OYENEYIN, B. 2011. Situation awareness in context-aware case-based decision support. In Proceedings of the 2011 IEEE international multi-disciplinary conference on cognitive methods in situation awareness and decision support (CogSIMA 2011), 22-24 February 2011, Miami, USA. New York: IEEE [online], article number 5753761, pages 9-16. Available from: https://doi.org/10.1109/COGSIMA.2011.5753761

Humans naturally reuse recalled knowledge to solve problems and this includes understanding the information that identify or characterize these problems (context), and the situation. Context-aware case-based reasoning (CBR) applications uses the cont... Read More about Situation awareness in context-aware case-based decision support..

Organizational factors shaping software process improvement in small-medium sized software teams: a multi-case analysis. (2010)
Conference Proceeding
ALLISON, I. 2010. Organizational factors shaping software process improvement in small-medium sized software teams: a multi-case analysis. In Proceedings of the 7th International conference on the quality of information and communications technology (QUATIC 2010), 29 September - 2 October 2010, Porto, Portugal. Los Alamitos: IEEE Computing Society [online], article number 5655656, pages 418-423. Available from: https://doi.org/10.1109/QUATIC.2010.81

Previous work looking at software process improvement (SPI) in small organizations has highlighted difficulties faced by small organizations in implementing SPI successfully, but there is little analysis to understand why this is from an organization...

A virtual learning environment for introductory programming. (2002)
Conference Proceeding
ALLISON, I., ORTON, P. and POWELL, H. 2002. A virtual learning environment for introductory programming. In Proceedings of the 3rd Conference of the Learning and Teaching Support Network: Subject Centre of Information and Computer Sciences (LTSN-ICS 2002), 27-29 August 2002, Loughborough, UK. Loughborough: Loughborough University, pages 48-52.

Teaching of initial programming is a significant pedagogical problem for computing departments. It is shown that by understanding the changing characteristics of computing students helps to identify their learning approaches and requirements. These f...
