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...

Multi-HDCS: solving DisCSPs with complex local problems cooperatively. (2010)
Conference Proceeding
LEE, D., ARANA, I., AHRIZ, H. and HUI, K.-Y. 2009. Multi-HDCS: solving DisCSPs with complex local problems cooperatively. In Huang, X.J., Ghorbani, A.A., Hacid, M.-S. and Yamaguchi, T. (eds.) Proceedings of the 2010 IEEE/WIC/ACM international conference on intelligent agent technology (IAT 2010), co-located with the 2010 IEEE/WIC/ACM international conference on web intelligence (WI 2010), and the joint conference workshops (WI-IAT Workshops 2010), 31 August - 3 September 2010, Toronto, Canada. Los Alamitos: IEEE Computer Society [online], volume 2, article number 5614767, pages 295-302. Available from: https://doi.org/10.1109/WI-IAT.2010.141

We propose Multi-HDCS, a new hybrid approach for solving Distributed CSPs with complex local problems. In Multi-HDCS, each agent concurrently: (i) runs a centralised systematic search for its complex local problem; (ii) participates in a distributed...

Automatic features characterization from 3d facial images. (2010)
Conference Proceeding
ELYAN, E. and UGAIL, H. 2010. Automatic features characterization from 3d facial images. In Arabnia, H.R., Deligiannidis, L. and Solo, A.M.G. (eds.) Proceedings of the 14th International computer graphics and virtual reality conference (CGVR 2010), 12-15 July 2010, Las Vegas, USA. Georgia, USA: CSREA Press, pages 67-73.

This paper presents a novel and computationally fast method for automatic identification of symmetry profile from 3D facial images. The algorithm is based on the concepts of computational geometry which yield fast and accurate results. In order to de... Read More about Automatic features characterization from 3d facial images..

Developing tools to encourage reflection in first year students blogs. (2010)
Conference Proceeding
MCDERMOTT, R., BRINDLEY, G. and ECCLESTON, G. 2010. Developing tools to encourage reflection in first year students blogs. In Proceedings of the 15th Innovation and technology in computer science education annual conference (ITiCSE '10), 26-30 June 2010, Ankara, Turkey. New York: ACM [online], pages 147-151. Available from: https://doi.org/10.1145/1822090.1822132

The pedagogical basis of a project aimed at encouraging students to engage in reflective activities using blogs to document their learning experiences is described. It also gives some details of the practical implementation of this work. Activities w... Read More about Developing tools to encourage reflection in first year students blogs..

Hybrid algorithms for distributed constraint satisfaction. (2010)
Thesis
LEE, D.A.J. 2010. Hybrid algorithms for distributed constraint satisfaction.. Robert Gordon University, PhD thesis.

A Distributed Constraint Satisfaction Problem (DisCSP) is a CSP which is divided into several inter-related complex local problems, each assigned to a different agent. Thus, each agent has knowledge of the variables and corresponding domains of its l... Read More about Hybrid algorithms for distributed constraint satisfaction..

Perceiving and using genre by form: an eye-tracking study. (2010)
Journal Article
CLARK, M., RUTHVEN, I. and HOLT, P.O'B. 2010. Perceiving and using genre by form: an eye-tracking study. Libri [online], 60(3), pages 268-280. Available from: https://doi.org/10.1515/libr.2010.023

This paper reports on an approach to the analysis of genre recognition using eye-tracking. The researchers focused on eight different types of e-mail, such as calls for papers, newsletters and spam, which were chosen to represent different genres. Th...
