  • Abstract machine design for increasingly more powerful ALGOL-languages 

    Gunn, Hamish Iain Elston (University of St Andrews, 1985) - Thesis
    This thesis presents the work and results of an investigation into language implementation. Some work on language design has also been undertaken. Three languages have been implemented which may be described as members of ...
  • Academic Cloud computing research : five pitfalls and five opportunities 

    Barker, Adam; Varghese, Blesson; Stuart Ward, Jonathan; Sommerville, Ian (USENIX, 2014-06-17) - Conference item
    This discussion paper argues that there are five fundamental pitfalls, which can restrict academics from conducting cloud computing research at the infrastructure level, which is currently where the vast majority of academic ...
  • An academic’s observations from a sabbatical at Google 

    Barker, Adam David (2018-09) - Journal article
    How experiences gained in industry can improve academic research and teaching.
  • Acceleration-as-a-Service : exploiting virtualised GPUs for a financial application 

    Varghese, Blesson; Prades, Javier; Reaño, Carlos; Silla, Federico (IEEE Computer Society, 2015-09-01) - Conference item
    How can GPU acceleration be obtained as a service in a cluster? This question has become increasingly significant due to the inefficiency of installing GPUs on all nodes of a cluster. The research reported in this paper ...
  • Access to Higher Education for Scottish rural communities : an exploratory analysis 

    Lasselle, Laurence; Kirby, Graham Njal Cameron; Macpherson, Robert Allan (University of St Andrews, 2015-08-28) - Report
    Traditional socio-economic factors cannot solely explain why state secondary schools located in Scottish rural communities tend to have (i) greater variation of progressions to Higher Education (HE) year on year than other ...
  • Accuracy of circulating adiponectin for predicting gestational diabetes : a systematic review and meta-analysis 

    Iliodromiti, S; Sassarini, J; Kelsey, Tom; Lindsay, R; Sattar, N; Nelson, S (2016-04) - Journal article
    Aims/hypothesis Universal screening for gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) has not been implemented, and this has had substantial clinical implications. Biomarker-directed targeted screening might be feasible. We sought ...
  • Achieving stable subspace clustering by post-processing generic clustering results 

    Pham, Duc-Son; Arandjelovic, Ognjen; Venkatesh, Svetha (IEEE, 2016-10-31) - Conference item
    We propose an effective subspace selection scheme as a post-processing step to improve results obtained by sparse subspace clustering (SSC). Our method starts by the computation of stable subspaces using a novel random ...
  • ACT : a tool for performance driven evolution of distributed applications 

    Sage, Aled; Kirby, Graham Njal Cameron; Morrison, Ronald (2001) - Conference paper
    There are two main stages to evolving distributed applications in the manner desired by application builders: first deciding which changes are required and when, and second making the changes. Understanding the performance ...
  • Active architecture for pervasive contextual services 

    Kirby, Graham; Dearle, Alan; Morrison, Ron; Dunlop, Mark; Connor, Richard; Nixon, Paddy (2003) - Conference paper
    Pervasive services may be defined as services that are available "to any client (anytime, anywhere)". Here we focus on the software and network infrastructure required to support pervasive contextual services operating ...
  • An active-architecture approach to COTS integration 

    Warboys, B.C.; Snowdon, R.; Greenwood, R.M.; Seet, W.; Robertson, I.; Morrison, Ronald; Balasubramaniam, Dharini; Kirby, Graham Njal Cameron; Mickan, K. (2005-07) - Journal article
    Commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) software products are increasingly used as standard components within integrated information systems. This creates challenges since both their developers and source code are not usually ...
  • Ad hoc Cloud computing 

    McGilvary, Gary; Barker, Adam David; Atkinson, Malcolm (IEEE Computer Society, 2015) - Conference item
    This paper presents the first complete, integrated and end-to-end solution for ad hoc cloud computing en- vironments. Ad hoc clouds harvest resources from existing sporadically available, non-exclusive (i.e. primarily used ...
  • AdaM : adapting multi-user interfaces for collaborative environments in real-time 

    Park, Seonwook; Gebhardt, Christoph; Rädle, Roman; Feit, Anna; Vrzakova, Hana; Dayama, Niraj; Yeo, Hui Shyong; Klokmose, Clemens; Quigley, Aaron John; Oulasvirta, Antti; Hilliges, Otmar (ACM, 2018-04-21) - Conference item
    Developing cross-device multi-user interfaces (UIs) is a challenging problem. There are numerous ways in which content and interactivity can be distributed. However, good solutions must consider multiple users, their roles, ...
  • Adapting to class sizes : what feedback fits best? 

    Wilde, Adriana (2014-02-27) - Conference item
  • Adaptive dissemination of network state knowledge in structured peer-to-peer networks 

    Hajiarabderkani, Masih (University of St Andrews, 2015-06-24) - Thesis
    One of the fundamental challenges in building Peer-to-Peer (P2P) applications is to locate resources across a dynamic set of nodes without centralised servers. Structured overlay networks solve this challenge by proving a ...
  • Adaptive network traffic management for multi user virtual environments 

    Oliver, Iain Angus (University of St Andrews, 2011-11-30) - Thesis
    Multi User Virtual Environments (MUVE) are a new class of Internet application with a significant user base. This thesis adds to our understanding of how MUVE network traffic fits into the mix of Internet traffic, and how ...
  • Adaptive pattern recognition in a real-world environment 

    Bairaktaris, Dmitrios (University of St Andrews, 1991) - Thesis
