A scalable architecture for the demand-driven deployment of location-neutral software services
(University of St Andrews, 2010) - Thesis
This thesis presents a scalable service-oriented architecture for the demand-driven deployment of location-neutral software services, using an end-to-end or ‘holistic’ approach to address identified shortcomings of the ...
Collaborative and evolutionary ontology development & its application in IM system for enhanced presence
(University of St Andrews, 2012-08-28) - Thesis
This research contributes to the field of ontology-based semantic matching techniques and also to the field of Instant Messaging (IM) based enhanced presence. It aims to achieve a mutually beneficial development of two ...

Investigating performance and energy efficiency on a private cloud
(University of St Andrews, 2014-06-25) - Thesis
Organizations are turning to private clouds due to concerns about security, privacy and administrative control. They are attracted by the flexibility and other advantages of cloud computing but are wary of breaking decades-old ...
Short and long supports for constraint propagation
(2013-01) - Journal article
Special-purpose constraint propagation algorithms frequently make implicit use of short supports -- by examining a subset of the variables, they can infer support (a justification that a variable-value pair may still form ...
Counting cases in substitope algorithms
(2004-07) - Journal article
We describe how to count the cases that arise in a family of visualization techniques, including Marching Cubes, Sweeping Simplices, Contour Meshing, Interval Volumes, and Separating Surfaces. Counting the cases is the ...
Container-based Cloud Virtual Machine benchmarking
(IEEE Computer Society, 2016-04-04) - Conference item
With the availability of a wide range of cloud Virtual Machines (VMs) it is difficult to determine which VMs can maximise the performance of an application. Benchmarking is commonly used to this end for capturing the ...
Examination of text-entry methods for tabletop displays
(IEEE, 2007-10-10) - Conference item
Although text entry is a vital part of day-to-day computing familiar to most people, not much research has been done to enable text entry on large interactive tables. One might assume that a good approach would be to choose ...
The Virtual Museums of Caen : a case study on modes of representation of digital historical content
(IEEE, 2015-09-28) - Conference item
In the early 19th Century much of the Strath of Kildonan was cleared of its people who were replaced by sheep farming. This pattern was repeated across the Scottish Highlands. In 2013 Timespan, Helmsdale Heritage and Arts ...
An investigation into the use of social network sites to support project communications
(University of St Andrews, 2010-06-23) - Thesis
System deployment projects are extremely complex and with more and more organisations now choosing to configure and deploy off-the-shelf systems, the project teams are presented with new challenges. The aim of this study ...
