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 ...
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 ...
On the relationship between hypersequent calculi and labelled sequent calculi for intermediate logics with geometric Kripke semantics
(University of St Andrews, 2010-06-04) - Thesis
In this thesis we examine the relationship between hypersequent and some types of labelled sequent calculi for a subset of intermediate logics—logics between intuitionistic (Int), and classical logics—that have geometric ...
Applying contextual integrity to the study of social network sites
(University of St Andrews, 2015-11-30) - Thesis
Social network sites (SNSs) have become very popular, with more than 1.39 billion people using Facebook alone. The ability to share large amounts of personal information with these services, such as location traces, ...
Observation-driven configuration of complex software systems
(University of St Andrews, 2004-06) - Thesis
The ever-increasing complexity of software systems makes them hard to comprehend, predict and tune due to emergent properties and non-deterministic behaviour. Complexity arises from the size of software systems and the ...
A testbed for embedded systems
(University of St Andrews, 1994) - Thesis
Testing and Debugging are often the most difficult phase of software development. This is especially true of embedded systems which are usually concurrent, have real-time performance and correctness constraints and which ...
Improving the efficiency of learning CSP solvers
(University of St Andrews, 2011-05-01) - Thesis
Backtracking CSP solvers provide a powerful framework for search and reasoning. The aim of constraint learning is increase global reasoning power by learning new constraints to boost reasoning and hopefully reduce search ...
